The room was clean & looked newly renovated. The staff was great! Very on top of things. Also the other guests were very friendly. I've been to wildwood staying at a different hotel every time. I have to say I like this one the best so far. Across from the hotel is a big field of grass and stage for... More

Pros: Clean and location. Pool not green and slimy like the last time... Cons: No place within short distance to pick up things to buy ie; water, sun block. Also, far from the boardwalk, although some think that's a good thing. Some staff are very snippy! Parking STINKS! Spots are very narrow and there are not enough for all guests,... More

Dear Returning Customer, thank you for taking the time to share about your experience at our motel. We do just want to address a few of your comments. Contrary to your misunderstanding, we do provide one parking spot per unit. Unfortunately, people at times try to sneak a second car on our lot or park over the lines. We do... More

We just got back today from the Armada today and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We stayed for 4 nights (there is a 3 night minimum) and couldn't have picked a better place. There are many motels to choose from in Wildwood but the Armada is so clean and family run. Every room has a view of the beach,... More

Armada by the Sea is ideally situated... close to the southern end of the boardwalk, less than a five minute walk, and directly on the beach. The view from the balcony of the full moon over the ocean was fantastic. The room was clean, comfortable, and well maintained. Everything (TV, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, air conditioner, etc.) was recently upgraded... More

My husband, son, friend and I have been going to Wildwood Crest, NJ for the past 8 years. We have stayed at various hotels. Even though our experience was good, I was NOT completely satisfied with the rooms. As a matter of fact, I did NOT want to go back this year. My husband and son wanted to go to... More

this was our 4th year coming to armada and it remains a great place to stay....very clean and staff VERY friendly. Thanks to Freddie for helping us get our bike rack back on our car. We like the 5th floor for the view. Still the ONLY downfall is the parking....if you have a SUV type vehicle can sometimes be difficult... More

I had stayed here as a child with my parents, and hadn't been back in years, but I finally returned, and I was very pleased. Wildwood is not know for plush, 5 star hotels. The hotels are older, and that definitely adds to their charm and appeal. The good news is most are modernized, well maintained, and very clean. The... More

I originally reviewed this back in 2010 when we stayed there for the first time. We stayed for our fourth year and I've already made the reservations for next year. Everything was clean. The staff are friendly and wonderful to deal with. I can't think of staying anywhere else.

Wonderful location. Very clean and friendly. Every room has an ocean view. The pool was very clean and warm. We had everything we needed in the one bedroom suite with the stove and full size refrigerator. Plenty of room for 5 of us. We would stay here again. Thanks for the great vacation at your hotel.
