Wildwood Crest is 5 minutes from Cape May. More than half the rooms have ocean view balconies. The partially renovated motel is clean with comfortable beds and good shower. Breakfast is & reasonable. Coffee needs 2 creamers & 2 sugar subs to make it good. Several good restaurants within several blocks(walkable in 5 minutes).

I am used to more amenities in general, but Wildwood Crest appears to make it a point to have Motels rather than resorts with lounges, restaurants and the like. I researched the entire area and did not find one. Rooms are clean, a bit worn, but proximity to the beach and a pool are what most people come for.

We had a very nice time and the location and accommodations were more than adequate. The pool is heated and the café was open for breakfast although it was the end of September. The beach is beautiful and the pool is heated and thus lovely temperature in September. The hotel's location is close enough to cape may and close enough... More

First time staying at the El Coronado. Have stayed at many of the motels, but we decided to try this because we like to have separate bedrooms. The room was average and typical of a Wildwood motel. Kitchen cabinets had been recently updated and the bathroom sink and toilet had probably been updated recently also. The beds were comfortable and... More

We recently made a last minute reservation at the El Coronado Motel in Wildwood due to the fact it was supposed to be a great weather weekend and the wife wanted to get away, yet I had online work that needed to be done via computer. I have been coming to Wildwood for 40 years but the place we normally... More

We have stayed at the El Coronado almost every year for about 20 years. When we first stayed, it was a wonderful romantic getaway. When we had our daughter, the oceanfront suites became the perfect vacation lodging. She was about six before she realized that she did not own an apartment at the El Coronado. She still called it her... More

Recently stayed three nights mid-week in August. We chose this hotel due to the many room configurations available. Had stayed for almost twenty years at the Port Royal but their largest unit would no longer accomodate us, as we wanted a central living area with two bedrooms and two baths. Check-in was okay. Front desk not overly friendly. Arrived at... More

Just had another great week long stay at El Coronado (+/- $1900). Holding steady for more than three decades, they must be doing something right. One of only a handful of 6+ story resorts allowed in the Wildwood's today. El Coronado hotels truly has a parking space for every room. Not kidding. El Coronado offers one of the largest pools...
