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

This was my first Motel stay ever and I was a lil nervous. We arrived on a Saturday morning and was greeted by a pleasant woman who checked us in quickly. Upon entering the room I was pleasantly surprised. The room was very spacious and clean. The carpet was newer and obviously well vacuumed prior to our arrival. The sheets... More

Great spot, they just need better WiFi. Rooms are clean and staff is friendly. My family has been coming here since the mid 1960's. Very close to the beach with a nice ingroung pool. it is a nice quiet spot for a family vacation.

We couldn't arrange our vacation for a Sat. - Sat. stay, which is the only way you can rent a condo or house on the Shore. Instead, we rented one of the two BR with kitchen rooms at the Ala Kai. The room fixtures are a bit dated and spartan but the room itself was very clean and appeared to... More

Since the mid 1960's my husband, Bill, has been visiting Wildwood Crest and staying at the Ala Kai Motel. In the 60's he was a child and thirty years later he brought his wife and children to the beach and, of course, we stayed at the Ala Kai. It's relaxing. We stay in a room with a kitchen. It is...

Rooms were mostly clean and average. Only things i noticed were boxspring under mattress was dirty. When i say dirty i mean from being... More

I needed a room on very short notice. I was given their best room at the basic room rate which impressed me. I felt like family when we checked in. Yes, the room is a bit old fashioned but it was clean, the AC was ice cold and our bedroom was quiet even though we were right at the pool.... More

We stayed at the Ala Kai after storms knocked out our power in Linwood. The staff was super friendly and the rooms were clean and spacious. The location was quiet as the Ala Kai is located far from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk area. We would definitely recommend the Ala Kai to anyone going to Wildwood/Wildwood Crest.
