Was a last minute booking and from the pictures, the place seemed fine. I'll start with the pros - Location was great. Right on the beach, could jump in the pool and go right into the ocean within seconds. -The beds were comfortable. But not clean - I'll get to that later. - Parking lot had nice big spots. Now...

This is not okay, Helen, and we're really sorry for all the problems you faced. Although our rooms are a bit older, we do our best to keep them in tip top shape. If ever a room isn't up to standard, we're more than happy to come in and take care of the problems or move you into a different... More

I really loved the location of the hotel. Our children loved the pool and miniature golf and volleyball net on site. There also was bike rentals & a park directly across the street. The cleaning people were excellent. I will definitely go back to this hotel being it kept my children content and happy.

If you've answered yes then The Oceanview is for you! This place is right on the beach but....... If you have a weak stomach don't stay here (or read this review). At the low end of the spectrum during our stay there was a potpourri of grimy smears through out the facility. On the high side there is feces on... More

Wow, Natalie -- your review is pretty eye-opening for us. We've known for quite a while that we have some work to do. Slowly but surely, we've been making updates throughout the property, but we need to do more. We're really sorry to hear that you didn't have the greatest stay with us. Had you let us know of the...

We stayed for three nights in June with family and friends. The location was good (a bit far to the promenade with all the attractions, but still within walking distance). That's where the good ends... First of all, 'no smoking policy' was hardly enforced since our room was supposed to be non smoking but reaked of smoke, second, the furniture... More

We're really sorry about this, Magdalena -- we're working on making some updates because we want to do better for our guests. As for the cleanliness of the room, we would've been happy to come in deal with any areas that didn't meet your expectations. At the end of the day, we know our property needs some TLC, but in...

Stayed here only because I was able to get an oceanfront room, which didn't happen because of their error. I was moved to an oceanview room. Beds were uncomfortable, bathroom had no electrical outlets (I had to plug my hairdryer into an outlet near the frig and use the microwave reflection as my mirror), wifi was not working most of...

We're really sorry about the smoke issues. We currently do not have any restrictions about smoking outside of the rooms, but we will certainly take a look at our policies as we would never want that smoke to be impacting your stay with us. As for the rooms, we know we have work to do, and we are slowly but... More

We stayed in this hotel in 1973 when it was called the Admiral East and thought we'd give it a try again. We're much older now and no longer have the kids (or grandkids) with us. Obviously it was a bit newer then and we thought at the time extremely nice. This time we stayed in a one bedroom efficiency.... More

Thanks for returning back -- a lot has changed here since the 70s, but we're certainly working to catch up with time. As you were told, we are slowly updating the property, but it's a process that will take some patience. We're really sorry you weren't able to sleep better during your stay, and do know that we've heard your... More

Just before leaving for our East Coast vacation, my husband told me to book a room in Wildwood as our grandkids wanted to see the "Jersey Shore". We were traveling with 3 kids ages 10, 15, and 17. It was difficult finding a room for 5 and I was able to get a room at this hotel. Yes the rooms... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at a rate of $230 a night on 7/21/2014-7/24/2014. Believe me it was NOT worth the money. This hotel is very, very outdated. We stayed in a suite with two beds in the back and two in the front. It wasn't very inviting. The room wreaks of mildew and... More
