We have stayed at this motel on and off for the past 20 years and I swear there has not been anything new at all during those 20 years except for the addition of curly corded phones. Even the draperies and 1950s gas cooktops in the efficiencies are THE SAME! The only reason we stayed here was because it was... More

Even though Linda was so nice over the phone and the first 30 minutes of our stay there...she gave us an attitude. The next day she was even worse screaming at guests from one side to the pool to the other very unprofessional and rude. This is definetly not a way to treat guest if she had a problem with... More

I am very disappointed to say that this hotel is not nearly as nice as all of the wonderful five star reviews would make it out to be. As those reviews say, the owner of this establishment is indeed very, very friendly to her guests. However, I would also like to think that the people who read reviews on here... More

I have been staying at the Blue Marlin during the Elks Conventions and there is not a better place to stay. Clean rooms and steps from the beach. Love the view from the 3rd floor patio. Linda and Charlie just make you feel like part of the family. With everything changing to condo, it's good to know that old time... More

We liked this hotel and stayed here for many years with no problems, the location is great and staff is friendly. But this past year, we booked ahead and unfortunately it was the hurricane weekend. We called to try to cancel but Linda told us we would lose our deposit if we didn't show up. She said we will have... More

I picked to stay at the Blue Marlin because It is a very family friendly hotel and although the rooms were clean and the staff was pleasant, The NOISE level was INSANE !!! This is by far the LOUDEST place I have stayed in Wildwood. I figured that the noise would die down as it got later into the evening... More

I have been going to the Blue Marlin for 43 years and never want to go anywhere else! It's just like home and Linda and Charlie are the BEST! The rooms are cleaned by the best cleaning staff anywhere and the location to everything can't be beat. Just steps to the best beach in the world. Someday I will go... More

Great family motel and a beautiful, clean pool. Very close to the beach and 2 grills to cook on.

Traveled with a family of 5 (our three children ages from 15 to 24). If you need new and fancy, don't bother. If you want a home away from home with great and friendly owners and employees (Linda is a really great person!) you will find it at the Blue Marlin. If you want to hang out at the Boardwalk,...
