Nice motel, our second year staying there, is nice and clean. A little dated but maintained. Owners are very friendly, pool is clean. Closes at 6pm though which is a downside. Overall a really great little motel in North Wildwood. One block from the beach and the tram car.

Initially our stay was only supposed to be for 3 nights but we added on before we got here to 8 nights. From the moment we checked in, the owners have been beyond exceptional!... More

Beautiful pool. It was well taken care of. The owners were very nice people. They were always there to help you. It was close to the boardwalk But not so close that it would disturb your sleep.I would definitely recommend it

Always a pleasure to stay at golden rails. The rooms and grounds are kept clean at all times. Nice pool( wish it was open at night, closes at 6). Very comfortable staying here with kids. Close proximity to beach and boardwalk.

Stayed there three years ago,great place very wonderful people in office. Very nice and clean room with tv in each room. They even let us stay parked there after we checked out to go on the boards afterward in the morning. Great location not far from boardwalk,really can't say enough of how we really enjoyed ourselves there.

Our room and the motel was immaculately clean. Everything we needed was in the kitchen including sponge and soap. It’s true the rooms are sound proof, there was a small party just below our room in the open space with the ping pong table, and we didn’t hear a single thing.
