Its great the motel is pet friendly as not many are in Wildwood or Cape May. The room was cramped with one double size bed. There was one electric socket with and extension cord. The coffee pot was on top the small microwave and the microwave was sitting on top of the little refrigerator. No complimentary shampoo or conditioner. The... More

Stayed here Summer 2014. It is definitely dated, but in a good remember the beach when you were a kid back in the 1970's kind of way. It was clean. We took an upstairs 2 bedroom apt. The weather was fairly cool so having a window unit in the living room wasn't a problem, but if it had been warmer... More

I have absolutely found my new vacation place! I will admit, I was skeptical to stay here because of there not being a website or any pictures, but this is a hidden gem!

I really have nothing bad to say about the Red Horse at all. Kay is a fantastic host and very helpful. Her recommendation for us to dine at "Good Night Irene" restaurant, which was excellent. When I was a child (which I still am!) my family has a cottage at Wildwood Crest, so we were there every summer. I had... More

The families that were there when we were there were friendly and nice. Our sammy could go with us which was wonderful that it is pet... More

I have been coming to the Red Horse ever since High School (I'm in my mid 50's now). I remember when they had a diving board for the pool and KAY was a lifeguard. Kay and Art are wonderful people. This past weekend was extra special for us since my son and daughter-in-law and two grandsons were there as well.... More

The Red Horse is a family tradition and it is just the eptiomy of relaxation. My husband Jim, my Shi Tzu Roxy, my daughter Alexa, and my son Steve have been retreating to this Wildwood gem for over 20 years. My mother, and father rent the VIP cottage, while the kids stay in the apartment. Kay is such a sweet... More

Clean 3-star overlooking Sunset Lake. Really friendly atmosphere frequented by dog lovers (mostly). Family owned with a great quiet location in the Crest. Sit on the deck overlooking the lake at sunset with a cocktail and your pooch at your side; life is good in the Wildwoods! Some reviews have complained about loud music being played by the hotel ....
