Love this place....have been coming for years. Clean, friendly, and right by the beach. Just park your car and if you are a walking person you can walk easily to the Boardwalk. If not, there are trolleys and of course the tram cars on the Boardwalk!

Superb location. A cut above other similar places I've stayed. Wildwood Crest is a fantastic nearby destination. Near excellent restaurants with fresh and well prepared seafood. Bandana's is great for Mexican. Also highly recommend Dogtooth Bar & Grille and the Fish Factory

From check in to check out, all I can say everything was great. Clean rooms, friendly service and great location. We have a disabled child and they are very accommodating. We have been going to Wildwood Crest for many years and this is our second year at the Armada.

Loved our stay. Very friendly staff. Only problems were a need to update electric. Had to bring extension cords to plug phones next to bed. Also, wish I didn't have to walk down two hotels for breakfast.

It's ashame that the smoking was over the top, the staff was great,very helpful, Keep the pool open until dusk for parents with little kids after dinner. Each motel should provide staff to give handicap patrons rides on the beach ,water was quite a distance from the motel

My family has always been happy with Armada! The pool is clean and the rooms are well looked after. The staff is always available to assist and there's free coffee in the morning in the lobby!

Would recommend the Armada based on location, views, cleanliness, and comfort. Though I wouldn't mind if they did a few updates, overall I commend them for the condition of the hotel. The staff keep the common areas spotless and we find the owners quite friendly. Have stayed at the Armada three times and have never been disappointed.
