Some of the reviews I read here before booking made me a little leary about staying here. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. Here's the thing folks, this is the Jersey Shore, not the caribbean; so take it for what its worth. This area is full of cheap shoddy motels. The Aqua Beach is a great alternative to... More

Based on other reviews I did not expect a lot from this hotel. At the end of our visit we were pleased with our stay. We booked two rooms and they were a good size. The only thing I would say about them is that they need to be updated. The location was perfect for the beach and convention center... More

This was our first trip to Wildwood Crest, and I would have to say we will not go back. I have been to several other beaches and this was the worst. The Aqua Beach Resort is FAR from a resort. It is actually a motel. Almost all of the places to stay in Wildwood are motels, which is fine if... More

Rooms were nice but could have been laid out better. Their was no dressing area and the bathroom was too small to get dressed in for a family of four. Some of the staff could speak broken english and others did not speak any. They spoke another language when you were in the area which is ignorant and was very... More

The previous review was on target, the advertisement was completely false. The pictures shown on the website was for the new condos so if you intend on staying at this hotel don't do it, try out the condos. Despite reading the bad reviews I stayed at this hotel anyway relying on another person's word. When we arrived at the hotel... More

When our other hotel turned out to be a "bust", the staff at Aqua Beach was fantastic with finding us a room. The price was close to the other place, but the quality here was sooo much better. The hotel, outside and in the rooms, was clean and well kept. Good, quiet location. Friendly staff and decent food at on-property... More

We just came back from a long weekend at the Aqua beach. We booked through the hotel directly and booked 2 rooms for the weekend getaway package. We were vacationing with another family and the hotel was accommodating and put us in rooms right next to each other which really helped. When we got to the hotel early on Friday... More

The pictures that I viewed on the website and brochure are completely fabricated. The dimensions are way off and not all rooms have been updated! The hotel staff is extremely rude! This place was a dump and I will never visit again. Patrons beware! This is not a "RESORT" in simple words it is a MOTEL!

We did stay in the condo's and did not have a better experience than those guests in the hotel! The front desk children (I will call them that because they acted that way) were rude to say the least. Every time we had a problem and there were many we were told they would get right on it. The elevators... More

My fiancee and I returned from our second, my third, trip to the Aqua Beach in April for the 50's salutes the 60's weekend. We paid something like 180 for the 2 of us for the weekend which included 2 nights stay, dinner one night, breakfast both mornings, and two activities, we only did one which was a Cape May... More
