Unfortunately I think necessary to post this review. We stayed there this week for two nights – our second vacation in over six years with our three children with Autism. I spent an incredible amount of time with Adam, one of the managers, who was very helpful and understanding. We discussed the three properties and he assured me that we... More

My family and I stayed here for our annual trip to WW. All of the guests and the staff were very friendly and courteous. The pool is nice. Hot coffee and great cookies in the morning (hey, your on vacation. Eat the cookies!). Great location (on the beach and close to boardwalk). The rooms have enough elbow room, are very... More

We just got back from a 4 night stay at the Gondolier Motel and were completely happy with everything about our visit. There were 2 adults and 2 children and we were in a standard room with two double beds, fridge (up to your waist), microwave, a table with 4 chairs and a small private balcony. The room was very...

We called for a reservation eight days before we were to arrive August 11th. There were two options. We chose the efficiency with two queen beds. The pros were: The owner was the most humble and helpful person I have met in this field; The hotel was on the beach and the boardwalk was two short blocks away; The room... More

After staying at the Gondolier this summer, August of 2014, my family and I have made a list of both the pros and the cons of the motel. PROS: The motel is within walking distance of the beach, the Wildwood Boardwalk, many restaurants, ice cream parlors, and other fun attractions. Most rooms have a beautiful view of the beach, being... More

After quite a few years of absenteeism from Wildwood, we decided to visit the Crest again. Finding a motel in the Woods was rather tedious and disappointing, most reviews were awful. Fortunately for us, the Gondolier's reviews caught our interest, and the rest is history. The Motel is an outstanding; clean, comfortable, friendly, and on the beach. We needed a... More

We thought highly enough of The Gondolier to have already booked a stay for next year. There are some things you should know before choosing this hotel. First, keep in mind that there are a large number of room types (can view layouts on their website) and for some types there is only one room like it and you will... More

We just returned from a mini vacation in Wildwood Crest. First of all, I booked this trip four days before we arrived and I'm so glad that Adam and his family at the Gondolier were able to accommodate us! We have six children and they offered us a beautiful 2 room oceanfront efficiency! View was great and the motel is... More

My friends and I brought our kids for a mini vacay to Wildwood and we stayed here. The rooms were clean, had tv's in both the bedroom and front room and when I had a question about something, there was someone up to help immediately. The pool was great for the kids and had lots of seating and two grills... More
