I cannot say enough about this place. It's very clean and only yards away from the boardwalk. We love the pet-friendly environment and recommend this for anyone considering bringing their pet to the beach. Ed, Anastasia and Leriya were stellar hosts and provided us with warm smiles and great recommendations. We extended our stay and hope to return before the... More

Great place! My wife and I and our two Dachshunds really enjoyed our anniversary weekend here. The owner, manager along with the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean and it had a great view of the ocean. This is the spot if your traveling with pets. We will definitely be back.

I went to Rus Mar with my girlfriend and my dog. We stayed for the weekend and we loved every minute of it. Rus Mar is only minutes away from the boardwalk and beach, and there are a lot of restaurants within walking distance. The owners were very friendly and I would definitely recommend this hotel for those looking to... More

Needed a place to stay where I could bring my two min pins. Room was super clean and the staff was super nice. I showed my sister in-law the room (whom also has a small dog) she was impressed and plans to stay there next season. Would highly recommend this motel , especially if traveling with pets.

Just stayed at Rus Mar and it was perfect. Clean. Affordable. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great location just a block away from the Wildwood sign and across the street from the beach. And you can bring the dog. I would definitely stay again even without Fido in tow. (No my dog is not named Fido!)

This is our 3rd year returning to the Rus Mar. Subtle, but major changes this year! The paint on the building was redone and really makes the place shine in comparison to the neighboring hotels! Also, they completed really great renovations to the rooms and the stairwell leading up to the 2nd floor. I have a Great Dane with peripheral... More

My son and I just returned from our 4 day annual vacation to Wildwood. In years past, we have always stayed at the same hotel, but wanted to bring our dogs. The place was awesome! It was exceptionally close to the beach and boardwalk, but also allowed for nice places to walk our dogs. Everyone was friendly and they even... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. At the Rus Mar we take well raised doggies! We also found that our patrons tend to be good people and we believe that is because they are mostly "dog people". We will see you next time be well! More

We wanted to take a quick get away from life, and bring the dog to avoid the hassle of finding a sitter or boarding. Rus Mar was perfect. The rooms are immaculate, hotel is old and has the vintage feel, paint is fresh and clean, linens are crisp and white, pillows are full , fluffy and firm. The renovations that... More
