We were so looking forward to a nice beach vacation with our children. We did have one, but only after we cut our losses, left the Oceanview and booked into another motel. I had visited this motel several times as a child and teenager (when it was part of the Admiral) and had fond memories of it being a nice... More

We actually read the reviews of this place after booking it: BIG MISTAKE. It was too late but we decided to bring our own blankets, pillows, cleaning gloves/products; smart move, the tub was nasty. I didn't see roaches, but we didn't sleep all night thinking they'll crawl around during the night. We paid $160 for one night and honestly that... More

We stayed at the Ocean View and will never stay here again. We were on the fourth floor, which did have an excellent ocean/boardwalk view, but NO WORKING AIR CONDITIONING. We called maintenance and were told that it was working but because we were at the end of the run, and the roof was very hot, this was as cool... More

Don't waste your money. Oceanview is the biggest dump I've ever seen. We were so looking forward to our first time in Wildwood but we ended up leaving a day early, even though we had paid for another night. We should have left as soon as we checked in. I sprayed the bathroom with lysol, sprayed the linen with Febreze... More

First off I paid over $200 a night to be put right over top the barbeque grills? The room itself was small and on a slant. The air conditioning did not work or worked if set at 80 is working. The beds were absolutely horrible, I felt as though I was on a lump of potatoes, divots everywhere. The bathroom... More

I don't even know where to begin when describing this DUMP!! I wish my only complaint is that nothing has been repaired, replaced or updated since this place was built. Pealing paint, rusted faucets and stained towels with holes are the least of it. This place is like a crack house. When we checked in, we had to leave a... More

We booked a two room suite for two nights only. It was not the nicest of rooms but it was located on the ground level right next to the mini golf and swimming pool. I don't spend a lot of time in my hotel room while I'm on vacation anyway so as long as the beds are comfortable, I'm good.... More

As a senior group bus tour we stayed at Oceanview from August 25, 2008 till August 29. 2008. Nice Ocean view/location. Room was filthy, very old furnishings, Rusty faucets and lamp bases, scratchy, thin towels, no coffee pots, ironing boards,etc. All the rust on the faucets and lamps is a serious health hazard. The whole facility should be inspected and... More

My family stayed at Oceanview for 8/24 and 8/25. The Good: -Location. The property is right on the beach which is free and has lifeguards. There is an area right there for swimming or surfing. There is also a surf camp which meets right at this beach. Chairs and umbrellas are available for rental nearby. There is a bike rental... More
