“Very relaxing..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is the second time that we stayed at the Lampliter. Last year we were chased away by Hurricane Irene. The Mgmt. was very good last year, and we were happy to come back. My wife liked the hotel was right on the beach. The kids loved the pool. I loved the hot tub.

Room Tip: We liked the two room efficiency. The large size refrigerator, microwave and stovetop was very help...

My extended family and I have been going to the Lampliter for over 30 years. This family run hotel offers the perfect location....directly on the beach with a great size pool, kiddie pool, sun deck and jacuzzi. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, always clean and neat. I have had the same maid (Ruth) for over 25 years! Private parking, BBQ grill, washer and dryer on premises, restaurants, deli, bike rental, jet ski's, etc. are all within walking distance. The office lobby has menu's from all the restaurants in Wildwood Crest and Cape May so where to dine is never a problem. Fresh flower pots scattered around the hotel also add a homey touch. Perfect spot to relax, kick back and enjoy a family vacation. Tim, Melissa and staff never disappoint!

I have been coming to the Lampliter since I was not even a year old. This is by far my favorite place to stay in the Crest.

Rooms are not the best in the world but they are clean and spacious; that's really all I need. Maybe a little overpriced but not by much. Beds could be better, but I still got a good night's sleep.

Excellent service. I got there at 10 AM: check in time is 3 PM. But when I got there, the room was already ready for me! Maids were in and out in 10 minutes. Left them a big tip.

Premium location; right on the beach, and only a 5 minute maximum walk down to the water. Some rooms are within spitting distance of the sand!

Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. For a quick bite to eat, breakfast, or a cup of coffee there is the nearby Sandcastle Motel and the Saratoga Inn. Boardwalk is a quick 5 minute drive north, and Cape May is a 10 minute drive south.

Definitely would reccommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Crest. Save some money on "big time" hotels like Bal Harbour and you will have the time of your life.

Just returned from our 2nd stay at the Lamplighter and already booked for next year. We love how family friendly Lamplighter is, no rowdy drunk young adults. This is important for us, we have a young son who doesn't need to observe this. We love the location, literally footsteps from the beach. The pool is awesome, alway cystal clear. This place is very clean and the staff is very friendly and makes sure you are enjoying your stay.

This was our first time staying at this resort and we are definitely going back!! It was clean and had a great view of the ocean!!! It was perfect for a family of 4. Our room was on ground level oceanfront. The kids just played right in front of the room. No worrying about cars or them running off. I highly recommend staying here.!!! Would of loved to stayed longer but there is always next year!!!!

Room Tip: If you have small kids better to stay on ground floor oceanfront because the have all the beach to p...
