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When you come to wildwood you better have expectations of out of date shore motels or else your rating will always be low.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

Stayed at Monterey Resort this weekend (5/29-6/1) and had a great time. Place was nice, clean, and comfortable. Lady in front desk was a sweetheart and staff was friendly. I would definately stay here again. You can say we had the beach to ourselves and pool was clean/warm. Ride to Boardwalk was close and rooms had everything you needed.

We arrived on Friday night. No problems with check in. We stayed in room 208. The rooms are individually owned so each one will vary. Rooms are nice but house keeping is little to be desired. Mold growing on vents. We found an old shaving razor in the bathroom left on top of the mirror, a pair of shoes under... More

My family has been going to Wildwood for 35+ years, most of those years having been spent at the Monterey. One thing we will always have is wonderful memories. Unfortunately, though, the property has been in steady decline with no real sign of improvement. Our most recent trip is undoubtably our last, as there is no longer any justification for... More

We have stayed at the Monterey for many years. Love the location right on the beach. Front desk is very helpful. The rooms seem to get more and more worn every year. The last trip we brought a 4th person with us, and the living quarters were almost unbearable --- between the loud and leaking a/c system and the stained... More

I do not agree with the bad review of this hotel. We had a very pleasant stay and look forward to go back next July. Of course, the manager watches the place, it is her job. But, she is a very nice lady, always smiling. She is always there. So, she is able to guide you in what to see,... More

My family had the pleasure of staying at the Monterey Resort this past week and honestly it was a great great time. My kids enjoyed the pool and the hotels location right on the beach. Our unit was individually owned and it was perfectly set up for a shore vacation. The beds and room were clean and it included all... More
