“Wedding Rescuers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Great place to vacation, relax or believe it or not even have a wedding. My son was supposed to be getting married on Sunday, October 28th then Hurricane Sandy decided to enter the picture. They were to be married in a beautiful tent a few blocks from the hotel on the brides grandmother's property. We were all planning to spend the week-end at the StarLux. When the tent company told us they would not put up the tent the StarLux offered their lounge to us. They set up tables, let us use their breakfast room for food preparation and allowed us to decorate their lounge for the wedding. The entire staff could not have been nicer. It was like one large family pulling together for the bride and groom. We will always have great memories of my son's wedding thanks to the generosity and kindness of the staff and management of the StarLux Hotel. Unfortunately the wedding had to be moved up to Saturday evening instead of Sunday afternoon due to the mandatory evacuation so we did not get to stay the entire week-end- but we will definitely return.

Room Tip: Loved the suites with the extra space. The little balcony was a real treat.

Retro hotel only one block from the beach. We just stayed in one of the suites and had a small balcony with an ocean view. Well planned, attractive, small suite. Very clean hotel with an excellent staff that will do anything to make your stay comfortable. Nice continental breakfast .

Room Tip: Suites are excellent. Small kitchen with a full fridge and a small microwave.

This is a great place to kick back! We went late in the year. Was chilly, but the heated pool looked awfully inviting! The staff are great and seem to genuinely want you to have a great stay! Really enjoyed the room. It was a kick back in time. I hope to get a deal like this again next year!!!!

We had a good overall experience with this hotel. It was clean and the room was decent. It seemed fairly small for the price, but it is in a shore area. The bed was ok, but not super comfortable. A very short walk to the beach so a definite perk. The area was fairly quiet. I'm not sure if we would stay again. The pictures seemed cooler online.

we stayed a Thurs evening and enjoyed the 60's feel. This is a small motel but unique. Very clean with nice staff( Julie checked us out and was helpful).+ Free bikes. Also located a close 1/2 block from the Wildwood sign with a nice view on the upper floors! Continental breakfast was limited with muffins and bagels but appreciated. Unfortunately not much restaurant food selection this late in the season in the middle of the week.

Room Tip: 2-bed rooms are small for 4 people.

We were in Wildwood for an Irish Dance competition early last spring which was being held across the street from the hotel at the NJ Convention Center, so the convenience alone was super. The StarLux just looked appealing from the websites we checked, so we thought we'd give it a shot.....and man, we were impressed! It was just so cute, so clean, and so retro! My 10-year-old absolutely LOVES lava lamps (there's one in your room!), but our light bulb was burned out. So we asked the front desk if they could send up a maintenance person to change the bulb and he was there within 10 minutes! I know it doesn't sound like much, but that's the type of service your going to get at the StarLux........"Need a lava lamp bulb replaced? Sure! We'll be right up!" Love, Love, LOVED this place! Can't wait to spend the weekend there this spring!

We recently stayed at the Starlux Hotel in Wildwood. We spend two nights in our two room suite. It was very nicely decorated in a 1950's style. It was very clean and the furniture was in good condition. There was the bedroom and a livingroom/kitchen/dining room. There was a pocket door and the sofa opened up into a separate bed. Since we came in off season, the hotel was doing some repair work and painting. This in no way bothered us during our stay. Although we stayed there in late September, it was warm enough to enjoy the large heated swimming pool and whirlpool. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was not fancy, but adequate to get your day started. When we told my husbands parents that we where we were going to stay, they asked if we could get them a suite and take them along. Originally, they were not going to be on the same floor as we were, but when we arrived the clerk managed to get them a room right across the hall from us. This worked our great because my in-laws are elderly and it was nice having them close so we were readily available if they needed our help. We all really enjoyed our stay and would consider staying at the Starlux again if we return to Wildwood.

Room Tip: Suites above office are very nice and convenient.
