We've been staying at the Ala Kai for several years and to sum it up .... if you are looking for a family oriented, clean, comfortable, affordable place to stay in Wildwood, Wildwood Crest or even Cape May, This is the place. If you are looking for a Ritzy, upscale, expensive Hotel ... go somewhere else. Ala Kai is a... More

Normally we don't stay in the Crest but since my mother is disabled we wanted something closer to the beach. Ala Kai was a great choice. Upon arrival the front desk later was extremely nice. The pool is super clean and the rooms were comfy. Only thing I can really complain about is there not being a tv in the... More

This was our 4th year staying here. Let me start by saying this. If you like fancy hotels well this isn't for you. What this hotel is: it's affordable, It's outdated.. But is a very clean hotel. The entire staff always friendly and so were other people staying here. Beds are very comfy and believe they replaced with new beds... More

When we arrived we were greeted by the manager Jay who helped with everything. The room was clean and comfortable with brand new mattresses. The pool is great. The oven is right next door. Beaches here are beautiful and safe. I have seen beaches in many states and countries and this is one of the best. We had a great... More

Only stayed here for a night about 2 years ago but I always considered going back. Its not easy to get a room for one night anymore and the lady that checked me in was extremely nice and helpful. Very clean as well and it was cheap for a room at the end of July.

Let me start off by saying this place is spotless and that is the main thing. We stayed end of season and the place was spotless. Other than that...there is not much more I can say. We had a two room suite . It was spacious but there is only one A/C unit in the bed room. Since it was... More

Stayed for two nights. This motel, while old and somewhat outdated, was extremely clean! Also, the bathroom was a decent size, compared to those in other motels I've stayed at in the Wildwoods. Would recommend for anyone seeking a low key vacation.

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!
