“Just Ok Accommodations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The pros and cons:

Pros:
- Right on the beach
- Full kitchen (including full fridge/freezer, 4-burner stove, oven, dishwasher)
- FANTASTIC manager (Loretta is friendly and helpful beyond the call of duty)
- Elevator
- Daily housekeeping (if you want/need it)
- Two TVs and DVD players
- Four large BBQ grills
- Pool
- Two beach chairs + umbrella + boogie board provided
- Trolley stop at the corner (takes you to boardwalk and back)
- Two closets for storage + furniture if you want to unpack
- Everything you need for cooking (pots, pans, dishes, etc provided)
- Free wifi

Cons:
- Not clean (carpeting is filthy, couch is filthy)
- Couch/futon is run-down and looks like it's on its last legs
- Fridge not working properly (I bought a large box of mixed lettuce and it froze in the fridge)
- Bathtub/shower looks filthy and grimy
- Shower drain was clogged
- Mattresses are way too soft
- Tight accommodations for four. It really should be just for two people. There is only a run-down futon and an armchair in the living room area - definitely not enough room for four people to enjoy the space (we were two adults and two young children).
- The pots/pans provided were the non-stick kind and the non-stick coating was very scratched up. There were bits of the coating in our food. This was VERY disappointing.
- Wifi did not work from the bedroom. It only worked in the living/dining room area.

Great accommodations right on the beach with fantastic beach views! Will definitely stay there again. Whether you want to cook in a few meals all the items you need are there. Maid service daily. Pool heated with a small kiddie area gated off. Elevator which was great since we had a handicapped family member with us and we were on the 4th floor. Rooms very clean. Management very friendly and helpful. Trolley bus comes by corner every 40 minutes or so to take you to the boardwalk so you needn't look for parking up there.

Room Tip: Definitely stay Oceanside! Great little patio with chairs to enjoy the ocean all day and night!

Our family really enjoyed a week at the Four Winds. We had a very nice 1 bedroom efficiency with a clean, up to date bathroom. Although the beds did seem unusually short! There was a great sundeck overlooking the beach with tables right outside our room (2nd floor). A nice grilling area and very warm pool when you need a break from the ocean. Down the steps and there was a wide beach area for the kids to play and fly kites. Not as far a walk to the ocean as in Wildwood. This motel is almost at the end of Wildwood Crest so it was not too far to the bird sanctuary and we enjoyed a lot of bike riding. The boardwalk is a couple of miles so you have to drive or take the trolley. We did find plenty of parking lots for only $5.00. We also took advantage of the bracelet deal days on the piers. With the bracelet deals you can also ride the trolley for free which helps with getting to the other piers which are quite far. There were a lot of fun rides on the piers for the kids, but the rest of the boardwalk is mainly the usual food and t-shirt shops. You can ride bikes on the boardwalk until 11am which we did one day and had fun but there were about 1000 other people with the same idea! Overall, we were very happy and comfortable with this hotel and loved the location!

Motel is right on the beach. The room was clean and quiet, with a nicely stocked kitchenette. Morning coffee while watching the sun rise over the ocean from the balcony was delightful. The beachfront was spacious and well tended. The proximity to the great birding sites in Cape May was ideal, and the local restaurants we tried were excellent!

Many different room choices for every type of person(solo to large family) Been staying here for 10 years now and whatever room you get older or new, there all clean! There all induvidualy owned and decorated which is why they don't have many pics of a certain room. Great and friendly staff and maids and 2 nice ladies running the office, Loretta and Eileen. As I said great for business, couples, family, friends, and solo parties. Many amenities, right on beach, comcast cable, FREE WIFI!, about 20 blocks from amusements and center of town, so its quiet yet close enough to the boards, biking, many restaurants nearby, close to Bay, Huge rooms for any motel, beautifully decorated, heated pool, grills, elevator, porch with chairs, most rooms except for the 'Motel room' have fully equiped kitchens according to the brochure, clean and comfortable beddings and sofabeds, clean floors and bathrooms, modern refrigerators, a television for each room(living room and/or bedroom), luggage carts, newly painted railings and outside, new pool are, perfect for ANYBODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are self airconditoned/heated, all rooms can be sunny at some point of the day, Beach fron...
