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 !
