“The best place to stay in Wildwood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Where do we start? We absolutely love this place and would never consider staying anywhere else in Wildwood. Once again, we stayed in one of the Airstreams. At what other hotel can one stay in a vintage 50's Airstream? We visit Wildwood for the 50's Festival so staying in the Airstream always makes it "that" much more fun. It's also in great shape and is always very clean when we check in. The weather was great so we got to use the pool and it was amazing. It is heated so it's a great treat to be swimming in New Jersey in mid-October. The hot tub was also perfect and was great after a night of dancing. We met the pool man and it is obvious he takes his responsibility seriously. We had the opportunity to see one of the suites and man are they nice. For us, we will always select the Airstream, but for those who want a room, it was quite spacious and filled with that wonderful 50's kitsch that makes the Starlux a great and fun hotel. The location is one of the best and is about a block from the big Wildwood sign. Another thing we noticed is it's the same employees year after year so that says to us that it is a well-run establishment. Hands down, when in Wildwood, this the THE place to stay.

This is the third year I flew home from Atlanta, GA and took my mom to StarLux for a few days. You know you are staying somewhere good when year after year you see the same employees. To me, that says its a good place to work as it has steady happy employees. It's also a good place to stay as this was our third year in a row staying at StarLux!

While there is not much to do in Wildwood in off season, and perhaps the residents like it that way, it would be nice if the town could pull together just as Cape May has and make it a year-round place to visit. There certainly a number of places to stay, but we are partial to StarLux. It truly is like visiting family every year, and that makes it a welcoming motel. Gordon was missed as he has a number of venues he is managing, but we did run into him our last day. We also saw Jackie and Theresa again...like I said, like family!

Room was comfortable as usual, and while last year my recommendation was to have a dish drainer (which they did have available and all we needed to do was ask) this year we did ask and one was promptly brought to our room, as well as requested blankets.

One change that was noted, although it didn't effect us, is that this motel is totally smoke free! I'm sure when it's busy peak season, that is a plus for many, and an annoyance to others; but there is a spot, only one, where smokers can go.

Looking forward to coming back next year!!

We attended the 50s Rock & Roll Wildwood weekend in NJ. What a BLAST!!! Even though this was our third year, this was the best! We stayed at the StarLux which was superb! The manager, Jackie, couldn't do enough to make our stay a memorable one. Clean comfortable room, continental breakfast including coffee offered all day long, heated pool, game room, bikes and so much more. Can't wait til next year! Already reserved our room for 2015.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor which was great!

My family recently returned from a weekend in Wildwood, NJ, where we stayed at the StarLux Hotel. I LOVE this awesome place!! It's designed and decorated in a cool retro style, reminiscent of the Jetsons meet the 1950's!! It's conveniently located 1/2 block from the boardwalk/beach. The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub, complete with 50's music. Our room was very spacious, neat and extremely clean. The staff are phenomenal...very accommodating, polite, and attentive to detail. I will DEFINITELY be back (as soon as the nice weather returns to NJ). :)

Fun for families with children or teens. Nice game room with PacMan included. The best coffee included with the continental breakfast. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Poolside is nice!! Directly accross from the ocean!!

The StarLux offered everything we needed for our two-night stay as a work group. We were steps away from the beach and Morey's Piers while also having the amenities we needed to be effective on property. The all-glass lounge and meeting space had everything we needed.

I personally value sleep quality when choosing a hotel and was very pleased with the mattress, bedding and pillows provided. Each service staff member was accommodating, especially Giselle on the cleaning staff who went out of her way to be accommodating.

I can't wait to bring my husband back for a weekend get-a-way when Morey's Piers is back open in May. I am definitely recommending this spot for friends with children as I know they will love the fun touches and amenities, like the lava lamps in each room and swimming pool.

Great value and location.

A partner Wildwood hotel was suddenly closed and reservations shifted to this hotel. Unfortunately we were not advised of this change which resulted in some unnecessary driving around and not a few worries. However, the Star Lux provided us with an immaculate king suite with an interior entrance which suited our needs. Wireless internet was provided at no cost, but the signal was not always strong enough. The location was near the few eateries open at the close of the season. It was also near the main routes which simplified travelling in and out of town. Parking lot is small near the hotel, but we were lucky to get a spot. When the summer crowd is in town, the neighborhood is most likely very busy because of the location beach side, near the convention center. What was initially a disappointing surprise turned into an adequate as well as pleasant accommodation.

Room Tip: Try to get the room's with interior entrance doors.
