We will definitely book again next year. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The staff was so helpful and very friendly from the front desk personnel to maintenance department. The other families on the 4th floor with us were also gracious and friendly. The Oceanview Motel seems to attract nice people. We liked that the staff was proud of... More

We went to the Oceanview since my grandsons friend always went and we decided to go for a few days so he could hang out with his friend. We opted for the most expensive rooms - $225 a day with two king beds, a two burner cook top, a tiny refrigerator and microwave and an ocean view. We arrived and... More

We're sorry to hear of your troubles, and we apologize for the inconveniences we caused you and your family. You're right: Overbooking should never occur after a guest makes a reservation. In the case that an overbooking does occur, we should never ask you to make up for our mistakes. As for our cleaning staff, we really wish you would've... More

This hotel did have a lot of great things as well as things we didn't like. We liked the ocean view, the personalities of the maids, the pool that was heated and the beds. We didn't like that the sofa bed was uncomfortable especially when it was in bed shape because it had the springs hurting our back. We went... More

You're right, Dennis: We have some work to do. We really appreciate the feedback you've provided because it gives us a better idea of what our guests expect during a stay with us. We're sorry about the uncomfortable bed situation -- we should've been more ready and able to handle your complaints. As for the stove and the A/C, these... More

Upon arrival, Fred introduced himself to us and let us know if we needed anything just to ask him. Throughout our week, he was very helpful, letting us know about all of the activities for us. I have stayed at many hotels in the wildwood and have never been as satisfied as I was at the Oceanview!

We're pretty disappointed to read of your experience, Kim. Our motel has been around for quite some time, so when it comes to things like location and balcony space, there's not a whole lot we can do. That aside, our rooms should never be dirty. We wish you would've let us know because we would've happily found you a room... More

This was by far the worst experience I have ever had at hotel, anywhere on Earth. The smell of this dump is still in my nose and I have been home for 2 hours. They took my 233 dollars and they better enjoy it because its the last dime they see from me. My family and I lasted exactly 5... More

This is not the type of experience we aim to provide, and we're extremely sorry for letting you down, Lizanne. To know that you left our motel due to the state of our rooms is appalling and should never happen again. The dampness we face here at the shore is something we fight on a daily basis, but it sounds... More

We had a nice time and everyone at the motel was very friendly. Janice at the front desk went out of her way to be very welcoming and we really enjoyed our stay. While the outside might be a bit worn the room was spacious, very clean, and the view of the ocean was terrific!

Dirty, outdated, loud. Hair in our beds, loose pipes in the shower, damp carpets, musty smell. Wouldn't stay there again if you paid me. Parking situation is also a mess. Forget parking an SUV in their "parking spaces".

It's clear that we have some work to do, and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. A vacation should be relaxing and enjoyable, but we understand that dirty rooms and maintenance problems like loose pipes can put a damper on any trip. Had you mentioned these thing when you were here, we would've happily worked to find... More

It's great to hear you and your family largely enjoyed your stay and got to make use of our pool and sundeck, Randy. We are sorry that your room wasn't as clean as you were expecting, though.
