“Discriminating manager”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2003

During a recent stay - my family and I were singled out by the manager, stereotyped as some kind of "rowdy biker group". One person had a motorcycle and the rest of us have been going there for years. Why the sudden discrimination?? Letters have been sent to the motel association as well as the chamber of commerce!! Never will I stay there again and be made to feel unwelcomed. I'd rather take my $280 and throw it out of my car window while driving down Rt. 55!

We discovered this wonderful little place quite by accident. The Astronaut is a wonderful, clean, well-managed place to bring your family. Our experience there turned what could have been a disaster into the best vacation ever! It is right on the beach and is everything it claims to be. Thank you, Ed and Donna for a great vacation at the Astronaut.

The Astronaut is one of the best on-the-beach motels in Wildwood Crest. We have been going to Wildwood Crest since the early 80s and happened to find this hidden gem and have been staying there for at least ten years. I am fearful of writing a good review since many do not know of the Astronaut except for mostly repeat customers who have been going there for years, and I am afraid our little secret spot will be unhidden. Ed and Donna are wonderful and take great pride in managing their motel beautifully and offering not fancy but relatively modern and meticulously clean accommodations--some of their maids have worked for them for multiple repeat seasons, which says a lot. They do not allow kids without parents--hence, no teenagers destroying the place on prom weekend. Top floor which is nearly impossible to book, offers large leased condominium-style rooms with full-size kitchens. Views are beautiful and they are facing South, which is the best. Staying at the motels are better than the large elevator-style places as it is just a quick walk down six steps to the beautiful safe sandy Wildwood Crest beaches. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Book a year ahead to guarantee your room.
