“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

My husband and I have been visiting Wildwood for 56 years and have stayed at many different places. This is our favorite by far and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. We usually visit multiple times each year with family. Lisa and Chris treat you like family and the whole staff is very accommodating. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The hardwood floors are much preferred to carpeting. We get to see and spend time with a lot of the same people each year. So close and convenient to every thing we enjoy.

My husband and I just stayed at the Marlane with our daughters (12 & 6) for the first time and it was wonderful. Lisa and Chris are very nice and make you feel like family. The room was clean, the pool was heated, and the free morning coffee they set up is wonderful! We had a small issue with the in room safe and called the front desk. Chris was there in minutes and fixed the problem. The location is great. The best part was that it was a family atmosphere. Can't wait til next year to stay again. Thanks Chris and Lisa for a great family vacation:)

I have been going to Marlane for the past two years now, I feel safe bringing my children here and it is very clean, but the honest truth is that the owners Lisa and her husband are great people. I run into some family issues while on my visit and Lisa was more than accommodating and understanding. They treat you like family and you sure feel that way. Clean, friendly and on a great location, what more can you ask for?

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Very well-managed, friendly hosts, great location. Really between 4 and 5 stars. Problem is the clientele smokes on the grounds, so you need to walk through smoke as you go to and from your room. There are ashtrays in front of each room (no smoking inside rooms, though). I tried to hold my breath while walking, but found the constant smoking quite annoying.

Also, towels too thin.

Generally, this is safe, clean, nice environment for a family.

Lisa V, General Manager at Marlane Motel, responded to this review, June 18, 2014
Thank you for the great comments. We did have a family that seemed to smoke quite heavily that week. I understand your feelings and I'm sorry. Unfortunately we do not have a large enough area to designate for smokers only, but usually our smoking guests are quite respectful of others. As you noted, there is no smoking in our rooms. We're glad you had a good vacation. That is always our goal.

This is the only place to stay in Wildwood. Chris and Lisa are not just owners they treat guests like family. Clean cozy accommodations just one block from boardwalk , convention center, and great restaurants. We wouldn't stay elsewhere if it were free!

The Marlane Motel is an excellent place to stay. Rooms are kept clean and Chris nd Lisa (the owners) could not be more welcoming or helpful. We have stayed there for 5 or more years
now and would recommend the Motel to anyone as a friendly and excellent place to
stay and very near the beach and restaurants. My husband and I would not stay anywhere
else in Wildwood. Donna & Al M

This is the best motel. We have been staying here for 17 years, its a comfortable family environment and we always feel welcomed like family. The owners, Lisa and Chris, are always friendly and we love the area it's in. Its walking distance to everything you could need or want to do. We always recommend the Marlane Motel to all our friends that vacation in New Jersey.
