I made a reservation 60 days in advance of my trip. Clicking through the website under "AAA rate" there is no mention of a deposit, only the need to guarantee the reservation and that it may be cancelled on more than 3-day's notice period for a full refund. I was shocked to see a charge appear immediately on my credit... More

Stayed here for four nights in September for the Irish fair and had a terrific time! The one bedroom suite was plenty of room for three adults and two dogs. The entire property for immaculately clean and the heated pool was a real plus. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Excellent location - near beach, restaurants and stores.

The Esplanade has all the character of typical NJ Shore Hotels. It is comfortable, near the beach, and has the Wildwood vibe. The Studio has everything needed for two from a comfortable living/sleeping area, and a cozy kitchenette. The only two small items were a noisy A/C, and a maid that didn't restock the coffee. Denise the GM is very... More

The woman at the front desk was nice, people staying there were nice. Not too far from the beach and boardwalk. Enjoyed the pool. Wifi signal good. Only issue was cramped parking, but happy we were accommodated for a busy week! I would recommend to my friends and go again!
