Perfect for a quick trip. Our room was small but adequate and VERY clean. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The location was very close to the ocean. I would definitely stay there again. There were lots of children there but the rooms were quiet at night.

It's clear that the owners have put their blood, sweat and tears into this property. Chris is so nice and helpful. Every morning he was out there, cleaning the pool and making sure things were neat. Our room was hands down the cleanest place I have ever stayed on vacay. It was recently painted, updated. We had an efficiency with... More

Had a great stay at the Mark 1. Clean, quiet, updated rooms, friendly staff and fellow motel-stayers, just a great all around family environment. Retains the charm of the old Wildwood Crest, while being totally up-to-date and modern. Probably one of the best places to stay in Wildwood or Wildwood Crest. Will definitely be coming back next year!

The Mark 1 has never let us down. We been staying there for many years. The rooms are kept clean daily. The pool is beautifully kept, and heated for those cool days. The location is very convenient to the beach (beach block). The owners Chris and Cathy are hard workers, making sure you enjoy your time there. My family (we... More

I used to stay here when I was a kid. I recently came back and I couldn't believe how modern it became. The rooms were very clean and they smelled wonderfully fresh. We were here for 10 days and enjoyed every bit of it. I do have to say the last couple of days a group came in which were... More

I could have sworn I posted a review right after our Labor Day 2014 weekend stay, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Then again... I WAS seriously debating about posting a review, because if more folks knew how wonderful the Mark I was, then it would become more difficult to find a room there the next time we planned a... More
