We just came home from a week long stay at the Commander-by-the-Sea. We invited friends and family down to join us mid week. We all had a wonderful time! This was our first trip back to Wildwood in 10 years and found the Commander to be just as clean, comfortable and friendly as it was 10 years ago. The same... More

The Commander has always been a "Happy Place" for me. My family started staying at this motel 41 years ago. I had not been there in 9 years, but found it to be just as great as it always was. The same family has owned it for all these years and they make you feel welcome and have a friendly... More

This was my second stay at the Commander. We had a 3rd floor oceanfront efficiency room with a balcony. Lots of greats: location, balcony, views, beach, pool, kitchenette, owners, staff. The only very minor minus I would mention is that the beds are a little too firm, however, they are not cheap beds so that isn't the problem; I just... More

The place was recommended by a friend because it was clean, great location, and heated pool. Our friend was right on all accounts! Some other reviews are spot on with cleanliness, proximity, and friendliness of the staff, etc. This was a girlfriend get away for the night and was a great choice. Not fancy, but impeccably clean and we loved... More

A relaxing place, it felt like we were part of the family:) We stayed a few days and wish we planned to stay longer:) Its so close to beach, and the shuttle, which staff recommended brought us right to the boards. Its very clean and everything in the room worked perfectly. The efficiency allowed us to snack and save on... More

My family had already had our major vacation for the summer, so wanted a shorter and less expensive trip before school started. A friend told us about the Commander, so we checked Tripadvisor and booked our reservation. Commander was exactly what we expected it would be. It is an older, small resort with nothing luxurious or fancy. It is, however,... More

Sparkling clean, well-sized pool. Great location right on the beach. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Rooms older but very clean and everything in working order. Family-run. Have been here five times during past few years and find this the best combination of value Would definitely come back.

We spent three days with our kids in an Oceanfront room (#214). Clean room. Very comfortable. The mini kitchen (fridge, cooktop, etc) is a plus with a young family. Enjoyed afternoon snacks on the balcony overlooking the sand & surf. We used the grills provided; they're cleaned daily. The pool was sparkling, ping pong table was fun for the kids.... More

Booked a two Room Oceanview Suite (room) - in August 2012 for two college students just before their return to school for a Dad and Boys time away - the older one decided to take a late summer class so it turned out to be just for two. The room would have been plenty for six if needed - but... More

This hotel is so very clean. Something myself and my family always look for. The rooms with the kitchens are spotless, right down to the utensils. The B-Q's which can be used are always cleaned everyday. We bring ribs and burgers to grill. The owners take pride in their hotel. This is a family hotel so although you can hang... More
