It's on beach so you can't beat the location. It's clean and the owners are very nice. But and this is the big but, it is old and in need of renovation. So while the price for a night wasn't high in itself, it was high for the room. The bathroom sink was rusted and the old stucco on the... More

My husband and I traveled to Wildwood and a few days and needed a place to stay. We choose Villa Nova because of their reviews. And they were right! Great prices, clean rooms, changing room and pool, right on beach, owners are wonderful to work with and location is quiet but close enough to get to all you want to... More

the location is good. everything else is bad. they do not give soap, nor shampoo, and they have the courage to charge so much. I would pay $50 a night for such place. only the tv is new, I guess the original tv was black and white and they had to get rid of it. there are many other places... More

The villa nova is a nice motel on the beach. We stayed in the oceanfront room which was a great size and a king size bed! The private balcony was the biggest we have seen and we've stayed beachfront at quite a few crest motels. Parking is tight but always had a spot. Very clean, and great views. The owner... More

I'll start by saying that my family has been coming to his Motel in Wildwood since it first opened. We haven't been to Wildwood in several years and thought why not stay here. I has NOT changed in 30 years! And THIS IS ONE OF THE CLEANEST HOTELS I have ever stayed in. It needs a major facelift but you... More

Okay, the hotel is not what you call luxurious except for its direct ocean front location. It is however, comfortable, clean, and on the quieter side of town. There is good parking too. The pool is clean and the staff very polite and friendly. I can't say enough about the beautiful beach which is wide and sports soft white sand.... More

I agree, a hidden treasure! Very clean, owner operated by very nice people, heated pool, did I mention clean? Thank you to Joanne and Harold for making us feel welcome. On the beach too! We booked another stay as we checked out.

My parents would stay at the Villa Nova when I was a baby until I was about 10. We then bought a house in Rehoboth Beach. I hadn't been back to Wildwood until 6 years ago. The Villa Nova is exactly as I remembered it. The owners even remember my family. You cannot beat the value and I love talking... More

My daughter and I stayed here from 8/12/13-8/14/13. And my boyfriend and I stayed here for the night on 9/21/13. The owners are great and make you feel at home. The room we stayed is dated but is very clean. And would prefer it being clean over anything. The room we stayed in was small but we were only there... More
