I'll never stay any other place in Wildwood. The Rus Mar is the best. Bob and Barbara the owners are awesome. They don't treat you just like a guest, you are family. They are a pet friendly hotel one block from the beach. This is my third year down here. I always come with my two dogs, Layla and Samson.... More

They go the extra mile to make you stay enjoyable. I find the prices better than other places that are pet friendly. This is my 4th year staying there and... More

This is a pet friendly motel, across from the boardwalk and beach in the center of Wildwood. The staff were ok, room was ok, but overpriced. They claim that the location justifies the price, but it’s at the end of the boardwalk away from the amusements. It’s also at the part of the beach that takes forever to walk to... More

We appreciate your feedback. Every opinion matters. We are really disappointed that you weren't satisfied with your stay with us. We always do our best to provide the best service. All our guests know that the motel is located literally steps away from the beach and the boardwalk (half block walking distance). The beach itself is just very long. Still... More

This was our first time visiting Wildwood and staying at the Rus Mar with our "girl". The motel is right across the street from the boardwalk. It was great to be able to leave the dog in the unit when we went out. Also, there's a pet friendly park not far from the motel on Ocean Ave that has pet... More

We had a very nice experience, from start to finish. The manager was very, very pleasant, when setting up our reservation. The gals that work there did a great job. The owner went out of his way to make himself accessible and was very warm and friendly. Our large Labrador/Chesepeake Bay Retriever gave the experience a paws up! He spent... More
