“Wildwood Crest - at it's best !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

I am surprised that this motel isn’t ranked higher in the list of Tripadvisor reviews, it certainly deserves to be! My husband, son and I have been coming to the Park Lane for 8 years now. My parents come too. I would not just stay anywhere with my family – and that is why we continue to come here every year. It is a beautiful and clean motel in a great location in Wildwood Crest! Jim and Elena and their staff keep the Park Lane immaculately clean and looking new ! They take pride in keeping their guest’s environment clean and cater to their needs so that everyone can enjoy a relaxing vacation in a fantastic location without charging a fortune like the beachfront properties do. Their motel is beautiful – and a great size – not too large, and not too small, with free parking. The motel is 3 floors with stair access to 2nd and 3rd fl rooms. They offer a variety of rooms - each with at least a TV, a mini-fridge and a microwave. For details on room type and pictures of the motel, see their website at: http://parklaneresorts.com. The Park Lane also has one of the most beautiful pools in the Wildwoods – it is a salt-water pool – so no chlorine smell and easier on the skin and eyes! It also looks beautiful at night when it is lit up by lights (and sometimes by the water fountains too)! It has a diving board and a water slide for the kids. For the younger toddlers, there is a slightly detached baby pool. Around the pool are a good number of lounges and chairs and at least 3 tables with umbrellas where you can snack by the pool. The Park Lane is conveniently located only ½ a block from the beach and is located directly across from the beach front property – Pan Am. However – ocean views can be seen from either side – due to a baseball field on one side and a playground on the other. There is a great view of the ocean from the 2nd floor deck and any rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The playground diagonally across the street is a great location to have nearby for families with kids – since it provides a newly renovated playground for kids – with swings, climbing areas and slides. It also has 2 newly repaved basketball courts for kids and adults of all ages (very popular) ! In addition – there is a Bike rental place there too – so that you can rent children’s and adult bikes and surreys from morning to afternoon. We love to rent bikes from owner Larry - for morning rides on the boardwalk and promenades (on either side of the boardwalk - in the Crest and North WW) – at least a 3 mile ride each way – with scenic views ! The 2 baseball fields – on the other side of the motel – one next to and the other diagonally across the street –offer a place to play some softball or kick around a ball or even play some Frisbee - when there aren't games being held. There are some tennis courts 3 blocks south of the hotel and a library. The location of the Park Lane is not only convenient to the beach, but also only 3 blocks away from Wildwood’s famous boardwalk ! So you can walk there, rather than take the car – like you must for hotels further into Wildwood Crest. For a delicious ice cream treat in the evenings – we like to go to Bandana’s - only about a block away. It also offers some great Mexican food. The small restaurant at the Crusader is somewhere my parents like to go to - only ½ a block away – offers breakfasts and dinners for small parties - and looks out at the promenade and sand dunes of the beach. One of Wildwood Crest’s best restaurants and one of our favorites– Little Italy – is only 3 blocks away – go there for their great Italian food and early bird specials – 4-5PM. In addition – Primo’s hoagies is not far (about 5-6 blocks away?)- for a quick take-out of some great hoagies. Kurtz’ by the bay is a quick take-out or a nice little quiet place to eat by the bay – where they have a few picnic tables with umbrellas set up outside – and offers a variety of fresh seafood items. That is also where you can buy tickets for boat tours. The Bayview Restaurant is not a far drive and also offers views of the bay for larger parties – also good early bird specials. For those of you seeking a grocery store - the closest is the Acme - about a 5 min car ride. These are just a few of the places nearby - with plenty more a short car ride away ! We come to the Park Lane every year for a week in June and sometimes we come more than once a year! As long as there is room for us, we will continue to come here year after year ! And for those of you who can come after school starts – the hotel is open until October – with great lower rates ! I recommend this beautiful, clean motel to families and couples seeking a relaxing vacation at a great location ! Thanks, Jim and Elena for a great stay in June and I will be calling you about coming back in August !

My husband and I stayed 10 days at the Park Lane this year because we like it too much ! It was our 5th time. So clean, so quiet, so friendly. Each year there is some change in the rooms. Jimmy and his lovely wife work very, very hard to maintain this motel pleasant to stay. The maids are also nice and the young man who works at night his so polite. We recommend this resort a hundred pourcent, you won't regret it. See you next year !

Room Tip: Room 204, near the big sundeck, because you can see the sea or room 104 because you are near the pic...

Excellent place, it is so spotless. The rooms are cleaner than ever with the tiles instead of carpet.(in some rooms).

Jim and Elena choose their customers with care, so everbody can have fun in a respectful way.

Excellent resort.

We have been going to the Park Lane for several years and have been referring the place to family and friends for its location (across the street from the beach and a few blocks from the boardwalk) but most importantly because it is the cleanest of all. Being an elderly who loves having children around, I appreciate its family resort style. Last year, after a family vacation there in July, I even left my husband home and went back in September for a treat with two of my grade school friends and they enjoyed it as well. Sometimes I wonder ''are we gonna have to stop giving good references to make sure they have a unit available for us when we call to make reservation ? (lol) and of course the answer I give to myself is ''no'', it would not be fair for them.

My family and I just stayed at Park Lane and were very pleased. The hotel rooms and grounds are spotless. The owner Jim and his wife are very friendly with all the guests and do a wonderful job maintaining the property. The pool is fully gated so you don't have to worry about the kids. I would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting wildwood.

My wife and I have been visiting the Park Lane for over seven years and we have stayed there multiple times a year and it is always spotless inside and out. In all our visits we find that Jim and his lovely wife Alena are constantly upgrading the motel, whether in the rooms or outside on the grounds to make our stay is that much more enjoyable.

When we attend the VFW Convention in June, Jim and Alena go out of their way to make the Kearny VFW Post 1302 Veterans and their guests have a most pleasurable stay.

The Park Lane has one of the largest sundrenched pool and you can sunbath on their huge deck from sun up to sundown. It is only a short walk from the Park Lane to the longest boardwalk on the east coast and only a stroll across the street to the #1 rated beach in the State of New Jersey.

We and our friends have already booked our next stay for September for the Classic Cars and
Irish Weekend. We are looking forward to another outstanding visit at the Park Lane.

Being Quartermaster for our VFW Post 1302 it is my job to coordinate all plans for our annual VFW convention. We have been coming to Park Lane for 7 or 8 years now and I am so glad we were able to find this motel. The owner and the staff are true gems and they make our stay here a great experience each year. The rooms are spotless and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The owner and his wife make it a pleasant task to book our reservations and they work with me on coordinating all of our plans. I could not ask for better service and we will continue to come here each year as we couldn't ask for anything better.!! Would recommend to all my family and friends!!!
