This motel is incredible. Between the super retro rooms and the incredibly accommodating staff that runs the place, we just made the best memories of a lifetime. A bunch of us went for the weekend....Mike's food was unreal, Margie was so friendly and knowledgeable and Donna did a great job of keeping it clean and doing so many things for... More

40 of us stayed this past weekend. We had the time of our lives! Mike, margie & Donna treated us like royalty! The room was spotless, the sheets were soft & great thread count! Just plain comfy! The food was delicious & unending! It was a 10 out of 10 & I can't wait for next year! Go! You will... More

My husband and I stayed in this classic doo wop motel for 2 nights. If you love a retro feel, this place is it! The location is perfect as you are only about 2 blocks from the beginning of the Wildwood Boardwalk and only one block off the beach itself, but it's far enough removed to be very quiet and... More

We stayed for one night passing through. Highlight was the decor, a great example of Wildwood Doo-Wop. Room 230 is small and overlooking Ocean Ave., which could be rather noisy during high season. The room was clean but smelled of mildew when we entered — I cleaned the vents on the air-conditioner and this mostly went away. We enjoyed the... More

We started there the week after school started and found the beach all to your self. The motel was comfortable and clean. The pool and Kiki bar was great. I very nice place to stay and only a block from the begiining of the boardwalk. Had a great time thanks.

In addition to parking for 1 car per room on the property he issued us (1) on street parking pass which we were greatful for! On Saturday the Lady who... More

Imagine this hotel in 1957 when it opened! I don't think much has changed. Very clean, color scheme is definitely 1950'/1960's. Reminded me of a place that my Grandparents would have taken me 40 + years ago. Very clean, comfortable, ( I don't think that the beds date back). Watch an old episode of I Love Lucy and you can...

I stayed on the first floor, when I walked into the room I was hit by the smell of wet mold, there was a few flies in the room. I love the old fashion decor. The bathroom had stained dirt in the tub and a piece of hair ugh... I felt grossed out. The room wouldve been beautiful if it... More

Have stayed in Wildwood Crest for over 40 years and always wanted to try the Caribbean after reading the articles about it. Rooms were clean but small. The motel overall felt cramped. The scenery around the hotel is the back of two other hotels. Pool water was too warm to swim in. Was told that there would be irons and... More

My mom, sister, toddler niece, and I stayed the night here for a late summer day trip. First of all, the place is adorable. The design is very 50s, mainly because it was built then, but they've done a great job maintaining the decades feel. They even have 50s music playing at all times, which I loved! The staff was...
