We recently returned from a long weekend in Wildwood Crest, family of 7. We stayed at the Monterey located right on the beach and had a beach front room. The beach front room does make all the difference, it made up for the cranky manager. The room was clean, but the bathroom and bedrooms need TLC. The room was quiet... More

My husband, our daughter and myself stayed here for a long weekend. It was clean but a little small (we had an efficiency unit). We think next time we will get a 2 bedroom unit so we have more space and we would like to stay longer next time. It had a full kitchen which was nice. Very close to... More

Just got back from our 5 night stay at the Monterey Resort. This is the fourth hotel we have stayed at in Wildwood and would have to say this was the best one yet. Family budget friendly condo hotel. It was clean, no odor, except for cleaning supplies (but not that over-powerful), and nicely decorated, which are my biggest issues.... More

We had room #312 at the Monterey. It was updated but very small for our family of 7. It was supposed to be a maximum of 6 but we have a 2 yrs old and other small children. Even a family of 4 or 5 would be cramped. The dining area/living room is very cramped. We were bumping into each... More

This has been our 3rd year traveling to the Monterey with our family. It's so sad to say that this cozy, and family-oriented hotel lacks the management it deserves! I can't imagine how some of you previously stated that Roseanne is so accommodating and nice...exactly the OPPOSITE is what we have been experiencing there these past years! Unless of course... More

For being an older hotel it was very clean. Our rm was updated and had everything we needed. Nice place for families to stay.Loved that it was so close to the beach. Looking forward to staying here again.

I have been the owner of a Condo Unit at the Monterey for over 27 years and I take offense when someone calls the Monterey a dump. In those 27 years the OWNERS not the management company have made many improvements to the Monterey, some of the improvements were new surfacing of the pool, new concrete court yard, new and... More

I enjoy coming back to the Monterey Resort for our family vacation and have been doing it for many years. The manager, Roseanne always goes out of her way to accommodate us well in numerous ways including even helping us to accommodate an elderly relative. She is very helpful and this most recent vacation of ours, we hit a drenching... More

My family and I have been staying at the Monterey about 30 years (since before I was born) and I am disheartened to say that we will not be doing so any longer. There have been many things leading up to us leaving this motel but most recently we were stripped of our reserved room just hours before check-in. For... More

When you come to wildwood you better have expectations of out of date shore motels or else your rating will always be low. However we come back every year to the monterey to relax. We rent room 104 which has a full kitchen 2 bedrooms 1 bath with new pull out couch and is on first floor. What people also... More
