We booked surf 16 motel at the last minute looking for a quick getaway... A last hoorah before school starts.. Very nice place and has a heated pool, that's a definite thumbs up... The rooms are a little small but we only intend on sleeping there... You can park and literally just walk everywhere... There's a grocery store right next... More

My family and I wanted to stay in a motel for the weekend Friday August 19th -Sunday August 21st in Wildwood, but everywhere was booked! We found this motel and looked at the online pictures of the place. It actually didn't do it justice for how roomy and clean this place actually was. I thought it would be crappy and... More

This was our first time staying here. It was very clean. It was quiet for the first night but then the next nite it seemed like the other people staying here thought maybe it was senior week or something, very noisy, loud. The hotel has notices all over stating quiet time is between 10:00 pm and 8:00 am. guess they... More

Thanks for staying with us. We are a family motel but even the families can get in a party mood sometimes. We try to balance our rules for being considerate of others with the understanding that many people come to the shore to unwind and and let there hair down a little. I think on the whole most people understand... More

Motel is VERY CLEAN! Pool is sparkling. Can always see staff cleaning property through out the day. Very friendly. Quiet at night, even on the weekend. Our family have stayed in multiple places in Wildwood, and Surf 16 is by far the cleanest. We will definitely return next year.

I usually don't stay in motels, but I was just so impressed by this privately owned place. The owners go out of their way to accommodate and welcome you. The single room (send floor) I booked was on the website. It was a lovely stay!!

We went to Surf 16 13 years ago and loved it....fast forward to June 2016. We still love it. Finding a pet friendly place can be a challenge but this is one of the best for our needs.

This was our second year at Surf 16 and it keeps getting better every time we go down. The cleaning staff was right on top of everything we needed. Even the maintenance guy was great. It was very quiet the week we were there, which was the week before labor day. The management has signs posted about quiet time between... More
