The place looks like it's falling apart and they give you a prom deal but they should pay you for staying there . If you book your hotel stay they can also bump you into one of their sister hotels with no care in the world as they did to a group of young kids celebrating their prom from Staten... More

This seedy place will never be my destination again. If you are like me and you like nice places, this isn't it. Stained towels. Broken floor tiles. Crappy mattresses (which I stripped and used my own sheets and comforter) no seating or table. An old tube TV set. Broken soap dish in the shower. Jacked up a/c cover. No roller... More

We stayed here for a quick weekend getaway and because it was close the the boardwalk. It was inexpensive but you definitely get what you pay for. There are definitely nicer places in Wildwood. The beds were flimsy, no towels in the bathroom. There is also no pool. I could hear people outside the room talking loudly during the night.... More

Not saying this hotel was "horrible" but it is not one of your "finer" hotels in Wildwood. First off, the location is great. We came to Wildwood for NYE and of course the choices for hotels this time of year is slim pickings. We found this place to be open and close to where we wanted to go so we... More

Starting in the Summer of 01 and for the next 6 years I (single dad) took my 3 young (5-7-9) year old kids to Wildwood. I was not wealthy by any stretch and called just about every hotel on the way down there for prices. i talked to JOE, the former owner and super nice guy. 5 nights $300 cash.... More
