“Convenient, Fun & very welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Located a few blocks from the boardwalk the Esplanade is great spot to stay with your family. The rooms are modern, clean and conveniently have a mini kitchen. The staff makes it the experience, you can tell they really care, are very welcoming and want you to have a great vacation. The manager leaves a very nice welcoming letter and really is there to help with questions, guidance for making plans or to handle quickly any issue a guest might have. I stayed with my son and his friends last weekend (8/24)and they went to the Summer Slam Sports and Music Festival on the beach (which they loved) and the only bad part was leaving, they didn’t want to go!!

We stayed here 2nd week of August.. 2 adults 3 kids. We have never been to Wildwood or the Jersey Shore before so we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised when we drove up to our hotel suite. It was a 1 bedroom with 2 queen beds.. A pullout couch,,a mini fridge,,stove,,sink,,plates,,cups,,pans,,toaster,,coffee pot and 1 bathroom. It was clean,, tile floors in the living room,, the Tv's in both rooms worked,, and the water pressure was great and hot!!! The pool area was nice.. Great patio furniture and clean. When you stay in Wildwood most of the hotels/motels are very similar.. Older and has that vintage feel,,, which I enjoyed .. No high rises or crazy condos all over the place,,, this is a great place to stay.. Close walk to the boardwalk and beach. It felt like we staying at some bodies home,, staff was friendly! Denise was great! It was well lit.. Made me feel safe. Very central area.. Close drive to the dolphin and pirate cruises and restaurants. I highly recommend this place! We stayed through our vacation club TAN!! And enjoyed it very much. Thanks!

My husband, son and I stayed at The Esplanade a few weeks ago in a studio suite. What a delightful property! The suite was extremely clean....one of the cleanest hotels I believe I have ever stayed in! It was plenty big for us and our 14 year old, who slept on the sleeper sofa. The kitchen was awesome.....still small, but larger than many I have seen and with lots of counter space, a microwave, coffee pot and refrigerator. The pool was very nice, clean and convenient. The customer service was awesome. The manager, Denise, was wonderful and you could tell well loved by everyone who stayed there. I couldn't help but notice she actually greeted the guests by name.....she seemed to know them all. It was clear her service was appreciated by all. It is an older property, but very cared for with lots of little touches that made it a special place to stay. It was also convenient to the beach, boardwalk and many restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel!!

Hi

My wife and sister - in - law booked two rooms at this hotel right before 4th of July weekend. What a great experience. Clean rooms, great pool ( heated.....although we didn't need it the two days we were there due to great weather) and most importantly GREAT people. Denise Palek is the Mgr and she treated us ( and other guests like gold). Very upbeat and personable. She made sure we had everything we needed including info about restaurants,bars with live music,taxi's and attractions. What a great place and what a pleasure it was to deal with Denise and her very friendly staff. Looking forward to going back before the summer is over....or in 2014. the cool thing is I observed Denise treating all the guest with passion and warmth.

Highly recommended

Thanks
Mike , Joanne and Beth

Room Tip: All the suites were booked , but for two people, the rooms we had were great. Had plenty of room,wit...

My daughter is going to Afganistan in 2 weeks. We decided to spend a few days together before she leaves. Denise made our week "a memory of lifetime". She treated us like family. She even made us an appointment for a pedicure and hair cut at a fantastic salon. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The location is perfect. The staff was always ready to help if you needed anything. I could not have asked for anything better. If you are looking for the perfect place, this is it. It was all I could ask for and more. We are planning a trip back as soon as my daughter gets back for her tour. Thank you Denise and the entire staff...

It was an honor to have you and your daughter spend such an important time in your lives here with us, and it was more of an honor that it was a fantastic, memorable stay.
Please hold onto those memories while she is away and look forward to your return when she returns.
We thank her for her service to this country and our freedom.
You are a proud mom and we are proud that you love it here and will be back with your daughter.

Awesome place to stay! The manager Denise knows what customer service is. We booked this vacation last minute and from the time we arrived, Denise treated us like we had known her for years. The hotel is clean, we'll maintained and the staff cannot do enough for you! The location is perfect for the beach and the boardwalk. We liked it so much we booked an extra nights stay! One of the nicest thing is we were able to bring our dog. The pool is clean as a whistle. Upon arrival in our room, there wasn't the stagnant smell that you find in most hotels in the middle of the summer. If you are looking for a clean hotel with a manager who is family oriented, this is the place to stay!!!
