“Best travel back in time ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We just returned from a weekend at the StarLux. Our kids were dancing in an Irish Dance competition at the Convention Center (two blocks away). We stayed in a one bedroom suite that was super clean and the decorations were awesome! There was a big living room with a pullout sofa, a small kitchen, a bedroom and a large bath. The place was spotless. My son was in love with the lava lamp! We spend one evening lounging with friends in the "fire room". Awesome decor and a huge tv. So relaxing! The location is great, plenty of parking, great staff. A+!

Room Tip: Suite 102 was close to the pool, fire room and game room!

Checked in easy enough, room 411 a suite with 2 queen beds in a bedroom, great view of boardwalk and ocean, with a private balcony. We r celebrating our 1st anniversary here, and we spent our honeymoon here also. The hot tub is out of service ,darn it! with all the bike riding that would have been great, but i understand that they have to clean and prepare for the season. service was good and i would rec. this motel for off season stays, or in season if u buy their stay and play packages.We r not staying here for our usual 17 night stay in season because thay do not have stoves only microwaves and i like to cook some nights. we love the lava lamp and if they have anymore specials on living social or travelzoo or deal chicken can't remember which 1, i will be back because we had a great time!

Room Tip: Room 411 yes yes yes top floor corner over looking beach, convention hall and boardwalk.

This is a hotel that is meant for a modest family vacation. Rooms are very small, but crammed with items - TV, DVD player, iron, fridge, microwave etc. Very adequate hotel, but not very memorable; I wouldn't want to stay here for more than a few days, given the size of the rooms -- but for a day or two visit, it more than fits the bill (if one is looking to save money).

We stayed here once. We were intrigued by the super cool architectural design, the fake palm trees, all the kitschy doo-wop decor. It looks like it came straight out of a 1960s time machine. So we decided to stay there one night, even though we had our "usual" motel. Well, it was a bit disappointing. The interior has some cool decor, too, but the room was tiny, even by Wildwood standards! One more thing -- parking was practically nonexistent! It wasn't very comfortable, either, but we were happy just to finally get a chance to stay in this incredibly cool hotel!

My mother,daughter and I had a wonderful stay at the Starlux. the gentleman who works nights, Wayne, was most helpful in our request for an additional night. He went out of his way to accomodate my request so we would not have to switch rooms the next day(Our stay happened to coincide with a large group coming in for a cheerleading competition.) My mother is in her 80's and that moving the next day would have been most inconvenient. I would surely recommend the Starlux to others.

I spent one night at The StarLux while I was in Wildwood for the Episcopal diocese of NJ's annual convention. The suite was comfortable, the kitchenette had a good size refrigerator and shelves full of dishes and cups. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. I did not spend a lot of time at the hotel, but I would definitely consider it for a longer stay in the future. Thanks!

My Fiancee an I had traveled down to Wildwood, NJ., for a 1 night stay at the Star Lux. We just needed to get out of our area. We called a few days earlier to see what they had available, and I had spoken with a gentleman named Wayne. What a sweetheart! He was able to tell me what rooms they had left, what they had in them,/equipped with and how much the prices were. So needing to confer w/my fiancee, we called the next morning and booked our room with a really nice woman named Mary(I believe) and she gave us the info. on our room that we'd be staying in. We stayed in a Suite I believe. It had a queen bed, small kitcheneete, Sofa-bed, big bathroom, nice sized table, all equipped with plates, bowls, spoons, cups, forks, knives, etc. and dish soap. The room had 2 Tvs, a stereo(tape deck n CD) and a desk an 2 sets of drawers. We were able to chill an relax in our room, have dinner, and unwind - We couldn't have asked for a better room ESPECIALLY for the price of our room! Everyone who works at the Star Lux is friendsly, helpful and we just had a really wonderful time!
