It's hard to believe anyone offering negative reviews of the Imperial 500 actually stayed there. Anyone who knows Wildwood Crest also knows the impeccable reputation this motel has earned over the years. Not only is the entire property meticulously maintained all day long, but if guests do have a problem, all it takes is a simple call to the front... More

We stayed at this hotel for the first time last year and stayed again this year and again, there was not one bad thing that I can say about this motel. This is a family owned business and owners live on premise. The owners are super nice and helpful on recommendations. We stayed in a type D room on the... More

We go this hotel every year and you are not going to find a better place. The first word I will say is clean, very clean. Lots to do here. Grill, shuffleboard, swim they have pool tables. The owners are really great people. This man is on the go from sunset to sundown. What a go getter.

We just returned from another trip to Wildwood, and as I have since I was a baby, we stayed at The Imperial. This place is more than an immaculately clean, well maintained motel; it's old and new memories. It's friendly and welcoming and familiar. Jackie, Jimmy, Ann and Joe put a lot of effort into making this a wonderful place... More

We booked somewhat last-minute (lucked into it after someone else canceled their reservation) to join my sister, who was staying there with her family. On the outside it looks a lot like every other beachfront motel in the immediate area. But even though it has been around a while, everything we saw was in great condition and kept clean. It's...

They have full kitchens in most rooms with everything you need to eat in. They even have 3 propane grills which we used to grill steaks. No smoking in rooms. I read the review about the 2 am...

The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating. The resort is very clean and kept up very well. We stayed in the room with one separate bedroom and a kitchenette. It was very comfortable for 4 people. The pool is salt water and big with a child's side pool. They have a cute dolphin water fountain that flows water... More

Our immediate family has been staying at the Imperial 500 for approximately 20+ years and my wife's family probably another 20 on top of that. The place is immaculate, plain and simple. For reasons I cannot recall, we stayed at 3 or 4 other Motel's over the years and none of them even came close to the Imperial 500 experience.... More

This is our second year at the Imperial 500 and we could not be more satisfied. It is still the cleanest, friendliest place that we have stayed. The owners are beyond accommodating and continue to provide exceptional service. The family atmosphere at the Imperial 500 is everywhere, you never feel like a stranger outside of your room.
