I have been staying at The Imperial 500 with my family since I was a baby. I look forward to going to Wildwood all year and there really is no better hotel in the Crest than this. It's extremely well kept and immaculately clean. Ann, Joe, Jackie and Jimmy are the best, always going above and beyond for their guests!... More

We returned to the Imperial 500 T the end of September and it was just as wonderful as ever. You can't find a more well kept motel. The owners really care about their property and you find many people that return year after year. I can't say enough good things about this place. Clean rooms, friendly staff, and ideally located...

We just had a big reunion at this Motel and it couldn't have been better! Jimmy, Jackie, family and staff were so friendly and made it so easy to plan and execute this event that future family reunions will certainly be held at the Imperial 500! We had over 100 people and 40 rooms booked and had not one complaint.... More

The room always feels like... More

We have been coming here for the past 8 years. We love the retro style and clean accommodations. Jim and Jackie continue to make us feel like family by going out their way to ensure we have a great stay. A+++ Thank you! Ken & Lisa PS: Thanks for leaving the light on!

We were a bit disappointed with our experience after reading reviews of high ratings. I think it comes down to your standard of living. We had a two room unit which only had one air conditioner in the back bedroom, so for us sleeping in the front room it was quite uncomfortable with just a fan. The beds are extremely... More
