The Armada is a very nice clean place. People and staff are pleasant and are very helpful. This is our second time we have stayed here. We stayed here about 10 yrs ago and have recently came back. I don't know why we left.

Within walking distance of the boardwalk and many restaurants, but you'll have to drive if you want to eat out in the evening. Gas grill on property. Open area between Armada and Port Royal Hotel for playing baseball, etc.

I was a little wary of staying here just because I have never stayed anywhere else other than Port Royal. It definitely wasn't Port Royal quality but I was pleasantly surprised. The receptionist was very nice and super accomdating. We had a oceanfront suite which was nice, the only thing that was a little strange was right when you go... More

This hotel is one of the better ones in the area. The location across from Centennial Park is prime, especially on Saturdays when there is a concert. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean. The heated pool is an added benefit as well as the spacious sun decks that look over the ocean. There could be more... More

I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Wildwood. Besides the room being extremely clean and the staff being awesome, the other guests are very friendly. We made friends the first year we were there and we saw them this year. Very family oriented.

We just returned from an annual weekend with friends in our favorite hotel by the beach. We have been coming to this venue for many years now. The owner and staff have always been helpful and tried to accommodate our requests and last minute room changes that come along when coordinating a large group. The rooms are always clean and...

If you are familiar with the Jersey Shore, you have probably experienced your share of overpriced, not so clean rooms with old furnishings and lumpy beds !! This was our first time here over Mother's Day weekend. This is by far the cleanest and best maintained traditional Wildwood hotel we have stayed in! I am still praying someone cancels for... More

the only thing wrong with this place is that we did not have more time to spend there. It is a jewel in todays world of rushing. Definitely going back and spending more time there. Simple is best. It has kept the best of what is vintage family vacation locations. Home away from home.

We love the Armada. Just booked for Memorial Day Weekend 2015, which will be our 5th straight year of spending at least a long weekend at the Armada.

Our stay was great! We were greeted at check in by friendly smiling faces. We had a ocean front room with balcony and we loved it! close to beach. The room and the motel were very clean. Concerts and Zumba classed go on throughout the week next door . We are already booked for next year and bringing extended family.
