We stay here everytime we come to Wildwood. We have never had a bad stay. The only problem was when the fan for the AC turned on the TV would get static. I didn't know about they offered free wifi so I can't comment on that.

We first came to this hotel in 2005. At the time we were extremely happy with the services. Now, 10 years later we come again and we were happy but somethings changed and that made our stay slightly worse. We stayed here from 7/24 to 8/1 and we didn't want to go home at the end of our trip.

Came down to Wildwood for a weekend trip with my husband and 2 year old son. Had no problems at check in. I knew to bring cash to make the payment otherwise there is a 5% credit card charge. I was given my keys and we went to our room. The hotel is older, might need a little updating but... More

The front desk was my very helpful. When I originally booked my vacation I requested a Friday through Sunday or Monday. I spoke with a gentlemen the sent my payment in full. When I arrived with my children they told me I had the wrong date and would not compensate me at all. They didn't even offer to help me... More

This is a copy of the E Mail she sent us and the problem could have been resolved if the customer opened her confirmation which was sent on May 23, 2015, instead of opening it when she walked in the door. We did suggest some options of places for her to stay. Copy of E mail below. Good evening I... More

Spoke with Peg who took down the credit card information and stated the first night would be charged to the card and the second can be paid at check-in.

We are sorry for your inconvenience, but sometime bookings do over lap. A charge was never ran on your credit card so we could not confirm a reservation and we contacted you in a timely manner to notify you. More

Love this place! It's on the beach and the front desk staff is friendly! Rooms are always clean. We stay here every year. Bad side is the parking is narrow and minimal and no free WiFi. Otherwise, it is a great place.
