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. Bonnie and Steve are so welcoming and accommodating, the facility is spotless, and the entire staff is super friendly. Rooms go fast, so definitely book early! We've stayed in an F or... More

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.

This is our second visit to Armada. We were there for the Labor Day weekend. Armada is right on the walkway leading to the beach, and about a 5 minute drive from Rio Grande. On our first trip there in 2013, we were in a room with a pool view, but this time we decided to go for one of... More

I've stayed here for the past 2 years. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are reasonably priced, and extremely clean! They have a BBQ area to used by the guests, which is great. Evey room has a microwave, fridge, blow dryer etc. It is close to the boardwalk, the beach and bike rental.

My family been going to Wildwood Crest since 1971. Each summer, we'd go to the Armada...I can remember one year, at the Pyramid, another one at the Yankee Clipper. The Armada is the best around. Yes, it might be a bit higher in price but the rooms and facilities are so clean and well maintained. I can remember Gloria and... More

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
