“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

This place is an amazing location and great place to stay. Very nice owner and staff with great service. Didn't have any problems. Rooms were always clean and had everything we needed. The owner is extremely friendly and very helpful. Went twice this summer, once memorial day weekend and just came back from our second visit in the beginning of August. Both visits were great. Definitely will be back again!

20 parking spaces for 27 rooms, and that is if you count the three in the street used by owners. Guest put chairs in thier spot to save it while others move so they can park. We had to request our maid service. Everyday I had to ask for a roll of toilet paper. can they afford it. Like they say you get what you pay for.

I brought my family for the first time last year and we loved it. we rented out 3 rooms. We came again this year and it was even better! The owner is very hospitable and made sure that we got exactly what we wanted. The housekeepers worked very efficiently. It took them about 10 minutes to clean the whole room. The pool is always clean and there's always a very friendly atmosphere thanks to manager and other happy customers. The loactaion is perfect, across from the beach and quiet part of the boardwalk. Will be returning this September for the annual car show. Looking forward to staying at this great place again soon!

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights, 4 days. The rooms were super clean (unlike most wildwood hotels), the location of the hotel is extremely close to the boardwalk, convention center and supermarket. There is a kitchen in every room with a refrigerator. The pool is a perfect ending to a long day at the beach (which is right across the street). The view is absolutely breathtaking. My family and I didn't want to leave. I would recommend this motel to anyone looking to relax and have a great time in wildwood! The staff was very welcoming and tended to our every need.

Hotel lobby is extremely dirty - not a good first impression at check in. Hotel is - like most WIldwood hotels - needing a major face lift. Our room smelled of extremely harse cleaning chemicals. Had to keep air on hi and door open to get the smell out. Kitchen was so out dated and dirty. Appliances were unusable due to being so dirty and old. So do not think you will utilize the kitchen and cook etc. All we did was put our drinks in the refrigerator. All you get is toilet paper. Not so much as a clock or box of tissues in the room. Exterior is in need of major updates and the pool too. PIctures on web site are probably 30 yrs ago! Glad we were only here for two nights.
