“Can't wait to go back next year”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I almost didn't want to write a review because I don't want word to get out!!! I hadn't been to Wildwood since I was a teenager- a very long time ago, and I was afraid of what I might have found when I got there. I was pleasantly surprised. This motel is a typical shore motel, nothing luxurious, but very clean, pool was clean, friendly staff, and a nice family place. The location is excellent, close to Boardwalk and attractions. My 15 year old daughter said it was the best vacation she ever had! We can't wait to go back next year.

My family has been vacationing in the Wildwoods since the 1920s. I, personally, have stayed in over 40 different motels/hotels/apartments over the years (on business and pleasure trips), so this review comes with a good deal of perspective.

To put it as simply as possible, the Daytona Inn offers the very best aspects of the Wildwoods experience.

First and foremost, you and your family WILL be taken care of here. From the owners/managers right down the very attentive and courteous service staff, no detail is too small to be attended to.

The rooms are clean and are available in varied sizes to fit your accommodations. On our recent stay, my family enjoyed one of the two bedroom apartments (complete with living area, dining room and a kitchen) - perfect for our 5-day stay.

You can't beat the location - right in the middle of town and just a block away from the boardwalk and beach.

The Daytona attracts a friendly clientele, clearly a lot of repeat customers, and for very good reason!

Looking for a clean, family-oriented, convenient motel in Wildwood? Then the Daytona's your place!

Ask for John, the owner, he couldn't be more helpful during your stay. Whether it's a few days or a few weeks, this NASCAR themed motor lodge is a great spot for couples or families. Just one block from the legendary Wildwood boardwalk, the rooms are spacious and clean. Each has its own coffee maker, microwave, cable tv and a decent size fridge. Both the AC and the shower water pressure were fantastic. The staff was polite and helpful, happy to bring us extra coffee or even a hair dryer! There are two pools, BBQ grills, picnic area and discount tickets as well as local restaurant recommendations available to all guests. John sent us to Schellengers, which was delicious seafood without a wait!

Free parking was a dream, making it easy to load and unload our car. Free wifi works in the rooms and by the pools. But let's be honest, if you're staying at the Daytona, you're probably over twenty-five and looking to take a few days off from work. I read some of the other reviews on here before our trip and all I can say to the naysayers is take it walking...to some other more persnickety beach town. The Dayona Inn is a family friendly spot in a busy summer resort town. Put your laptop away and enjoy the pools, walk the boards, ride the rides, relax on the beach, swim in the ocean. And most importantly, don't forget to "watch the tram car, please"!

This hotel was clean and a block away from the main attractions like the beach and the boardwalk. One of my only complaints is that one of our beds felt like we were laying on top of a cardboard box. It was so uncomfortable!! Thank God we had to Queen beds in our room and the other one was much more comfortable. Other than that we had a great stay and would return again. Average rates for that area and walking distance to mostly everything!

The reviews are spot-on for this Wildwood gem. 2 blocks from the boardwalk, off street parking, very clean rooms and family friendly.

We will absolutely be back. Probably get a little larger room next time. No complaints, our 8 year old loved the pools and we appreciated all the families. No loud parties and the patio with gas grills was a nice bonus.

Good location for main boardwalk but over priced for the state of the room. We wanted to leave after the 2nd night but they would not refund the rest of our stay due to "Policy" and we were forced to stay for 5 nights since they had already charged our credit card. We found better rooms with ocean view at a cheaper price just south of this motel. This is just your typical motel, old beds, old tube tv, kitchenette only had one burner working. BBQ's on site didn't heat higher than 200, pools were chlorinated in the morning without any warning to swimmers - my kids had blurred and burning eyes. Staff are not provided with proper keys to access rooms - in case of emergency. Would not recommend this place to anyone!!
The cleaners were extremely helpful and checked on us daily to ensure we were well taken care of. We tried to talk to the owner to address the issues but he refused to listen to us. Owner and office management has attitude! We will not be returning on our next stay in Wildwood.
