I have been going to Mark I every year with my family since I was 10 years old. I am now in my 40's and have continued the tradition with my children. We absolutely love this motel. The cleanliness, and affordability of the rooms cannot be beat. The owners Chris and Kathy really cater to their guests and makes everyone... More

We've made many trips to the Mark 1 Motel. It's our favorite family get-away. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They renovated recently and brought everything up to date. Good water pressure, comfortable beds, flat panel TVs, central air, WIFI, microwave, hairdryer, etc. The pool is big and has a safe section for little kids. The owners are really nice... More

What started off as a weekend getaway, became an annual vacation trip. This hotel has a great family friendly atmosphere, and the rooms and the hotel itself are well taken care of! The owners are friendly, they're personable , and make you feel welcome. Been going for years, and will be for years to come! Have a good day!

The owners were really nice and do a great job keeping the property clean. My room was clean, bathroom was super clean, great water pressure. The bed was comfortable. I was really close to the beach (walking distance), hotel had plenty of parking, My AC unit was loud and TV was small but both served their purposes. They have a... More

My family stayed at the Mark I at the end of September for a last minute getaway to the beach. The room was clean and quiet, even though the hotel was completely booked. Pool was still open (heated) so the kids loved that. It's a half a block from the beach so location was perfect.

The Mark I is a great little motel just off the beach in Wildwood Crest! This property is hands down the cleanest I've ever stayed at. The owner, Chris, is out at the crack of dawn cleaning the chairs and pool, making sure that every room is immaculate. Just a short walk to the beach, short drive to the boardwalk... More

Just returned from a short stay in Wildwood Crest. The Mark I cannot be beat as far as cleanliness, location, and the staff. The room was immaculate. There was everything I needed in the well-stocked kitchenette. The pool was perfect and warm! Steps from the beautiful Jersey beach. Chris and Kathy were available and very friendly. Overall, we were very... More

We stayed at the Mark I over Labor Day weekend and overall, our experience was excellent. The rooms and grounds are impeccably maintained. In our 3 nights there, we saw the owner cleaning the pool at least six times. The rooms aren't hugely spacious, but they are really clean and fairly updated. We stayed in the efficiency and the kitchen... More

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.
