Stay away , the customer service was horrible , unprofessional and rude , the rooms are dirty , called for cleaning , they took forever to bring towels. Plenty of other hotels In wildwood that's better than this location . This was my worst experience in wildwood and I highly recommend you find a better location. !

This year, everything changed. The one owner Bruce, had told our group of some complaints with the kids in our group. We listened,... More

Hi Jeff C.. thank you for the dead on review of our great motel. First floor rooms are loved by the families with little ones due to the pool being "right there.

My family and I stayed this past weekend. I have stayed at hotels up and down Wildwood from North to the Crest over the past 20 years. I must tell you that this hotel by far has been my favorite. The accommodations were spacious and clean, staff was friendly and the property itself was spotless. I will definitely return.

No major complaints. Accomodations were fine. Room was clean. No frills but certainly adequate especially if you are not one to spend a lot of time in your room. I would consider it on par or better than other places I've stayed in the Wildwoods. Most accommodations in the area are older, motor inn. There are few newer, chain hotels.... More

We booked five days here so we could attend a national dance completion at the Wildwood Convention Center. My first impression was good. Great location to beautiful beach and ocean, with a boarded foot path, and decent sized, clean pool. Upon entering our room, we were happy to find it clean and tidy (albeit completely out of date.) The rooms... More
