“Excellent location, quiet yet accesible to beach and boardwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

This is the second time we've been to Wildwood and the reason we stayed here (I still love the Astronaut!) is because of the location. It is across the street from the Boardwalk and the beach, yet the area is actually quiet. My kid loves to go to Morey's for the rides but we don't want to drive everyday to get to the Boardwalk. The view is also nice-you can see the Convention center and wildwoods sign, beach and boardwalk, from the balcony. The owner also stays there and makes sure everything is ok. There is coffee served all day near the office. The price is also reasonable for the time we booked it. One thing though that is a little weird is the paper bath mat(?). Definitely recommending it to everyone who wants to be near the boardwalk.

They request for you to send a check to make a reservation, no credit card. Once you sent it, NO REFUND or Credit for future use! Due to the Hurricane, whale watching trip got cancelled and so we needed to change the reservation 3 days before our arrival date. Disappointed they didn't even try to give us any credit for future use. I just wasted the whole $180 I paid.

After weeks of research and reading horrible reports for Wildwood motels, I found Starfire Motel, which had no bad reviews. We had 3 rooms with a mix of adults and children. It was a typical, dated, jersey shore motel room but it was very clean and the mattress/boxspring had plastic covers, which was a major plus in my opinion. bathrooms were updated and fairly new looking. The owners were very hospitable and worked very hard around the property each day making sure everything was neat and clean. It was across the street from beach and boardwalk. we had a nice view of ocean from top floor rooms. The only minor complaint i would have is that my daughter checked out a day sooner than the rest of us and wanted to spend the day at beach but they wanted her car moved because parking is limited to motel guests only. So she had to meter park her car for teh day which was inconvenient. Overall, I would highly recommend this motel both for location and cleanliness.

The best hotel we have ever stayed in. Extremely clean warm and friendly. We have stayed at many different hotels in the are and have found this one to be the best by far.

I stayed last July and my Girlfriend and I had a WONDERFUL time! The view from our room was breathtaking in the morning. The place was clean (even by my girlfriends standards, and that's saying something), and the people were friendly. Most importantly, there were no obnoxious people partying. This is a great place to take someone for a nice fun, but relaxing time. In 2009 we went to Seaside... I'm sure we had Snookie living next door, this is not the party palace. There were lots of people there with their kids, and the place is like 5 blocks from all the rides, so it seems like a great place for kids...when we're ready. In short, I'm coming back this weekend on fourth of July!

Room Tip: Look for a room with ocean view

There is such a great atmosphere of family! perfect if you want somewhere safe, clean, and guaranteed to not get too crazy. It is right next to the beach, which is simply gorgeous, or you can take a dip in the pool!

It was the perfect place to relax with my friends and we all plan on coming back when we can!
