I gave 2 stars because the location is great and the owners are super nice. I didn't expect the Ritz staying in Wildwood but since this hotel had high stars and good reviews on here I booked it online for Labor Day weekend. That being said - we checked in on a Friday night to our 2 bedroom room. It was really gross. The rug throughout was wet with a smell (we were told they are near the ocean, but I've stayed near the ocean many times) with a piece of it just randomly cut out and then pieced back in. The sofa bed was stained beyond belief and when I unfolded it was rusty. So the clean sheets on it had rust marks on them. The bathroom shower knobs barely worked and the bathroom had damage to the walls and, what looked like, sand painted into the floor trim from over the years. The worst part was on the wall next to the toilet there looked to be blood on the walls. The 2 bedrooms were not real bedrooms as they must have been created at a later date and had no HVAC vents or window air conditioning. So you would need to run the air or heat very high in the main area and leave the door open to hope it would come inside. The one thing I will say is the two beds in the rooms were newer and very comfortable, but there was not a blanket on either of them - just sheets. We paid an extra $20 per night because there were 5 of us (so they knew there were 5) and yet they left two blankets in the closet and 4 bath towels. It was an uncomfortable night of sleep. The next day we got our money back and went down the street to a better hotel. Maybe there are better rooms as there are may positive reviews on here. It was also super high per night price (I guess because it was considered 2 bedrooms) If it had been a reasonable price the condition wouldn't have been so shocking. The owner did state that they are having a major renovation soon and it will be beautiful. I hope this is true because, as stated above, they were very nice people. But this place should be condemned. It would help their reputation if they just closed, renovated and then opened so that people weren't staying in these conditions.…
Wonderful experience. Clean, super friendly, comfortable motel in North Wildwood. Short walk to beach, easy even with bad ankle. Very enjoyable. Would stay here again. Staff and management really pleasant and helpful. Pool was a perfect temperature and clean.
The pool was the best part and the location in proximity to the beach. Everything else was subpar. The room was tiny and very outdated with nasty carpets. We were also next to an empty room that was having work done on it so every morning at 9 am we were awakened by hammering and saws! Forget sleeping in on vacation. Parking is a nightmare. Limited and tight. You have to be a magician to get i to the spaces without singing your car. Prices are high and they still have outdated prices posted on the doors of every room.
Everything was nice. Convenient and close to beach. Classic 80 style motel. No frills. But Everything u need. We will go back.. the pool was really nice. Staff awesome. If I could complain it was the cable TV was basic and didn't have ESPN or tbs to watch play off basketball at night.
This was our third year at Harbor Mist, and just love it here. Great location to beach and boardwalk, clean rooms and pool, nice sized rooms and friendly staff. There are never any issues during our stays and we will continue to return each year for our family vacations.
