I'm almost afraid to post how good this motel is, for fear that we'll never get a room here again! Not sure what a motel needs to do to earn a "Certificate of Excellence" from Trip Advisor, but this motel deserves one! Customer service oriented and CLEAN (that CLEAN in all caps). We've been going to The Wildwoods for over... More

We had a great stay this week at this motel. The motel is beyond clean. The bathroom is very modern and clean. The cleaning staff was amazing. Everyday we would go to the beach and come back spotless room. The property is very close to the beach in fact you walk across the steer and you are at the beach.... More

This was my first time staying in this motel. I agree with all of the previous reviewers! The owner was extremely nice and accommodating. My room was basic but perfect for our needs. It really only fits two people comfortably although there were two double beds. Loved having a view of the ocean and the updated bathroom. Very clean room.... More

We were looking for a midweek getaway and stumbled upon the Crystal Beach. The motel was in great shape and very clean. Our bathroom was immaculate as it looked brand new. The location is great just a block from the beach, Crystal Beach is in a very quiet area in the Crest as the boardwalk begins just a few blocks... More

We stayed their for 3 nites. Family friendly. We stayed in an efficiency which was newly renovated and well equipped. Rooms were very very clean, and staff was friendly and helpful. Great location...close to boardwalk and beach. We will visit next season.

Very nice 50s style motel. Recently renovated. We used to stay at the former Satellite next door before it was torn down. Julie and Boris are very nice and very helpful, as is the rest of the staff. The regular motel rooms are a bit small, but very clean. The two-room efficiencies were a decent size. It's also relatively cheap... More

This hotel was nice. It is not fancy but very clean and close to the beach and the boardwalk. We were one block from the beach (huge beach) and about 2 miles from the boardwalk. We rented the efficiency room and I would recommend for the extra space. The kitchen was fine. The only complaint I would have was the... More

We stayed 5 days and the hotel was very clean and had most of what you need while away. The bathroom was very nice and clean. The kitchen was well equipped, we stayed in the 2 room suite. There was free wifi, the pool was nice and the jacuzzi was a bonus. The only thing I didn't like was that... More

Perfect place for your family. It's a quiet place with nice rooms and pools and it is not very expensive. It is close to the beach and the boardwalk. The staff is great and I would go back for sure! -Max
