“hated it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2007

i will not stay again .very different than what we were told over the phone we wre suppose to get 2 queen beds in one room and 1 queen in the other.when we got there only 2 beds in the room the kitchen had a very tiny refridgerator the pool was not heated maid service once in 7 days and you have to pay for ice when we complained about the bed situation the lady at the front desk told us that we would have to rent a cot.we ended uo going to a department store to buy a air mattress.this is not a resort as advertised it is a motel.contruction going on m-f across the street very noisy.i do not recommend this place at all unless you are desperate.the money we paid was not worth the services that we did not receive.

First of all, the name is wrong. It's called the Newport Family Motel. When we got there, people were telling us to turn around from their balconies b/c they said is was bad there. We decided to check it out ourselves (me,my husband, and our 2 boys) The place was a dive!! Filthy, dirty, toilets didn't flush. Mildew in the bathroom. Air conditioner faintly worked. The pool looked gross. We left the next morning at about 9am for the day and when we returned at 4pm, our room still hadn't even been cleaned !!! We immediately checked out!!

I will never stay at this motel again. I have stayed here in the past but things have changed!! There were dirty towels on my balcony
and no shower curtain to start I was very lucky to make it to the third floor in the little elevator that could. check out was at 10 am
but could not sleep past 7 am because of very disruptive yelling screaming banging and complete ignorance of other guest . at check out I asked about there policy on loud guest and I was told that the room had to be reported . It amazed me that they didnt hear the noise when people on the boardwalk could hear it.

The motel shower was nothing more than a mist, the elevator felt unsafe. It was freezing cold and the airconditioner/heater did not work properly. I would never stay there again. Just keeping it real... sorry.

We decided to spend Easter weekend in Wildwood NJ because of the wrestling tournament being held at the convention center. We loved the Newport hotel on Rio Grande Ave. The rooms were nice and clean. We had a two room suite ,which most rooms are and we even had a kitchenette, which was convenient for making breakfasts for our children. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, It was freezing at the shore and let's face facts, a motel at the beach is really not where you would want to be when it is 25 degrees outside. All in all, the friendly hotel staff was very accomodating in giving us extra blankets when we asked for them. The rooms did have heat but there is only so much heat can do in that awful weather. We booked our rooms through the convention center because we were down for the tournament, but we thought the hotel was so nice we booked with them for five days in August when we know we will be able to enjoy the pool and spacious sun deck. I highly recommend your giving the friendly folks at the Newport a call if you are planning a vacation in wildwood.
