“We will be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

We just got a puppy and wanted to get away for a few days. I was very paranoid about pet friendly places especially after reading the horrific reviews for both this motel and another pet friendly place in Wildwood. But I noticed that from May 2011 forward,the reviews were very positive. So I crossed my fingers and we gave it a shot. The place was clean and smelled clean. Staff came in daily to clean the rooms which included sweeping,mopping, sanitizing counters, etc. as well as making the beds. The dog yard is awesome and has baggies for poop pick up there for everyone's convenience. The pool and BBQ area is nice. The furniture and decor is not of my taste and is out dated, however, the most important details were all met....cleanliness, comfort and friendliness. Our puppy had a blast. The owners are very friendly and they made hot dogs for everyone and passed out ice pops on Labor Day weekend. We will definitely be back. Please stay pet friendly Surf 16! You guys rock!

We did not book our trip for the Labor day weekend until Thursday, Sep 1 and found this nice little motel on Tripadvisor. Noticed older posts were mostly negative, however, newer posts were much better. We can attest this is a nice, clean pet friendly motel. (Pet fee of $20 p/night). The new owners (this year) seem to be very responsible for their motel. The rooms were clean (loved the floor for our pet, it is a faux wood finish). Great idea! The pet yard is awesome! Our dog was able to get some running in while playing with other dogs at the motel. The air conditioner is a little loud, but tolerable. The pool seemed larger than most in Wildwood and very clean. Will stay again when in Wildwood!

Surf 16 Motel has great new owners for the 2011 season. The name is the same but the rooms and the service are very different....in a good way. We want everyone to know that there are so many wonderful changes. It is clean, and now only accepts small to medium size dogs. There are also pet free rooms available for families that choose a non-pet room.
The pool is fabulous and the outdoor grills and tables add a family touch to the vacation experience.

We have been going here for 9 years with our dog
We always enjoyed the hotel but with new owners there were so great changes
New floors in the rooms (and cleaner)
They now have a quiet time from 10pm to 7am which is great

Please keep it pet friendly!!
Think they need to upgrade the TV's :) Hope that is next!!
Hotel is 2 blocks from boardwalk so it is great!!

Thanks and we will be back!!!

First of all i would like to point out that this was my first time ever staying down in wildwood. I used to stay in seaside a lot and was dissapointed each time.

I stayed at the surf haven from July 29-31st with a group of seven other people. We had two rooms on the second floor with a conjoining door. Our room was very nicely kept and clean (total opposite of the places I have stayed in seaside). The hotel was very family oriented. The environment was very pleasant. I really loved the fact there were grills for the guests to use.

The location of the motel was perfect. It was two blocks up from the boardwalk/beach. There were convenience stores and banks within very close range to the motel.

Donna and her husband ( the owners) were very down to earth and genuinely cared about our stay.
I plan on returning next year with the same group for a little bit longer. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in wildwood!
