Arrival: We arrived on Friday June 8th, 2012 at about 5pm.
Location: The location is perfect; About one small block from the Wildwood Boardwalk and Morey's Pier and water park.
Check-in: There was no one else checking in upon our arrival, but we did notice a very large amount of people out by the pool. The desk employee was friendly and helpful. He asked us if we were part of the American Legion group and I told him no. He then said it may be a little loud tonight due to the American Legions entertainment. He gave us a room on the first floor and I asked if there was something on the upper floors away from the noise. He asked if I would like a room in their Boardwalk Bungalow hotel right around the corner (back of the hotel faces the Blue Palms). He said it would be quieter and the rooms had been renovated. We took the room after a brief look at it.
The room: The room, # 231, was located on the second floor with a view of the pool and a small back window with a view of Morey's Water Park. Again the location was perfect, a small block to the Boardwalk. The room had two newer beds, a newer flat screen tv, newer carpet, a fridge and a microwave. The bathroom was small but workable, everything was newer except the bathtub.
A couple small issues; The door the the motel room was lacking a secure lock. The main lock on the door handle did lock but was loose and not really a secure lock. The deadbolt lock had been removed so the room only had the one lock. For a hotel room there should be an inner lock so the hotel guest can secure the door when in the room. Also the floor in the room was not level and a little squeaky in some areas...not a big deal. The bathroom shower had issues with the hot/cold water, it was hard to get a good water temp when taking a shower. Also a little weird the bathroom ceiling had newer paint but wasn't completely painted. Again all of these issues were small and I'm hoping the still are finishing renovating these small issues. I think the door lock issue I would consider important and in need of improvement soon.
Overall: The motel was nice and worked great for a quick family get away. Staff was friendly, room was clean, location was perfect. I will be back!
