We have been coming here for the past 18 years, the same weekend in September, and have never been disappointed. The staff is wonderful, friendly, and ready to assist with any need, the facilities are constantly being maintained and improved, and we would stay no where else!

Excellent motel, friendly staff. Great value for Wildwood Crest and for the pristine condition the motel is maintained. The location by the park is perfect for families and to listen to the summer concerts.

Absolutely love the Armada and look forward to visiting every September. Very relaxing and quiet for our stay. That's important to us. The Armada is so family friendly and we do recommend the Armada to our friends. Love the sun deck.

We have been staying at the Armada for the past 7 years. The weather has been great all 7 years. You could not ask for a better place to stay. Great location, great service and right next to the beach.

Good value, next to beach. Room for 2 was small but is adequate. Cleanliness is high priority here. Rooms were adequate but small. Pool was clean, but small. Staff was friendly and helpful. Good value.

Thank you for your review, although we were surprised to see your comment that our 60-foot pool is small. That is truthfully a comment we have never heard before. We are pleased that you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us and hope to host you again in the future. More

We've been going to the Armada for over 12 years and wouldn't go any where else. Clean hotel and rooms, nice staff and great location. What else could you ask for. Although a bigger ice machine or second one would be nice. Even though the sign is up not to fill coolers, people still do leaving the rest of us... More

Thank you for your review of our motel. We agree that it is quite inconsiderate for people to empty the ice machine for their coolers, but we cannot force people to be considerate, no matter how much we try.

Don't want to brag too much about this place because if it gets too full we may not be able to get a reservation. Great place to stay. Will be back again next year. Location, location, location plus clean and friendly.
