We have stayed here before and will stay again! The rooms are very nice and clean. The pool is great. We like the location as it's not too close or too far from the boardwalk. Our room was oceanfront and the balconies are wonderful to sit and watch the waves. Truly a great experience!! Can't wait to come back!

My family really enjoyed our stay at the armada by the sea. It was the perfect location with no a ton of people on the beach. The hotel was very clean including the pool. We already booked for next year a week after vacation!!

Our week long stay at the Armada was characterized by consistently helpful and cheerful staff who maintained the entire property in a most meticulous fashion. There are insufficient words to describe how much we enjoyed our stay. Everything was superb: comfortable beds, generous sized refrigerator, very well equipped kitchen, magnificent views from our balcony, a very quiet air conditioner/heater which... More

I have been staying here literally all my life 32 years. I have seen many changes done to this hotel to make it one of the best. Rooms, view, staff, and owners are the best that any paying customer can ask for. For these reasons my family and I will continue to stay here!!!

We stayed in an ocean front room for two nights this past weekend. We have been staying here for over 10 years now. Over the years improvements have been made and the grounds have been well maintained. The staff really does take pride in the property. Looking forward to our next stay in September.

Have been coming to this hotel for years. Rooms are great and the staff is wonderful! Kitchens are fully equipped! Always Get to see a lot of familiar faces with the staff and the guests. This hotel has a very family oriented atmosphere. It is not party central so it is quiet in the evenings.

The only bothering thing was being on the third floor At the end of the Floor right on top of the terrasse and everybody standing there to speak and play with the people down The amount of people going by is too much

The hotel is perfect for beach goers and pool people. Clean, friendly staff and family friendly. I would recommend this to all my friends. Can not find a better place to stay. Had a great time with the maids and other staff members. They always ask if everything is ok and do we need anything.

Love the place, We like Cape May but there's not enough places to stay at, so we stay in Wildwood Crest . And of course Armada By-the-Sea is the best place to stay. So I recomend Armada to everyone. !!
