Stayed here for 2 nights last summer. Room was clean and had basic amenities plus a kitchenette for those staying longer than 2 nights. Friendly staff and good sized pool to swim in. Overall a decent place, affordable and close to the beach.

A very bare bones motel, but it was clean and comfortable. It needs some basic updating, but it was obviously well taken care of. The pool could stand to be repainted, but yet again it was clean! Overall I was very happy!

If you are looking for a low-stress and affordable vacation, then this motel will be perfect. I could tell the minute I stepped into the motel office that the stay here was going to be good. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. A very family-oriented place! The entire motel, while being somewhat dated, was extremely clean. The property was... More

The Ala Kai in Wildwood Crest was a really nice stay. I stayed for two nights at the last minute, and they were very accommodating. The rate was reasonable and the room was nice. We stayed in the motel room, with two double beds. The room is simple - no frills, but very clean, comfortable, and functional. The motel has... More

We love this place! The staff always makes us feel like family and we enjoy coming back year after year! It's always well kept, and in a great location. The rooms are a great size and very clean. The pool is cleaned every day and always the perfect spot! Thanks for making us family!!

No frills here- property is not new, but is very well maintained and cleaned. We did have a small issue where our cold water stopped working, but maintenance came up to fix it pretty quickly. Pros: Our room had a full-size refridgerator and a coffeemaker. Free wifi. Rooms were kept very clean and the staff was friendly. Cons: No cups... More

This is 3rd year in a row staying here. Staff is welcoming and helpful. Rooms are clean no frills. If you are a bit picky and prefer more fancy this motel isn't for you. However it's close to the beach. The pool is cleaned daily. If you plan to not go to beach and hang out at pool keep in... More

I have been staying at the Ala Kai Motel once or twice a year for the past eight years. The rooms are immaculate, the houskeeping is excellent and the staff is helpful. The motel is a great value as it is approximately half the price of beachfront hotels with identical accomodations. I will definitely return to the Ala Kai Motel
