This Hotel has everything, it starts at the beginning of the boardwalk, plenty of places close by to eat, close to the beach, Morey's Pier is the best and is also close, clean, nice pool, grilling area and staff is very accommodating. The 4th Floor Moon deck is great and offers a great view for the weekly fireworks show.

Although this place was relatively clean, location fine, parking basically a nightmare, I found a couple issues needing to be addressed. The Free WiFi they advertise, is unworkable...heard the normal excuses about calling the IT person tomorrow...and, we just changed over...frankly, either you have it and it works , or, not. By offering to use the system in the lobby... More

Hi Samuel, Thank you for your honest review. I want to let you know that we have heard the complaints about wifi LOUD and CLEAR! It was awful and we completely acknowledge that which is why we are at the tail end of an $8,000 project to upgrade our system. I am so sorry that it wasn't working when you... More

Paid for 6 people to stay. Room was only prepped for 4. Has a kitchen but nothing to cook with. Beds were not made with fitted sheets nor were the sheets that were on the bed tucked under the mattresses so when you got into bed you were laying on plastic!

Hi Sandie, We are so sorry that the room didn't have the requested number of towels and sheets that would accommodate 6 people. Did you call the front desk and request more? It is true that we do not have fitted sheets but we do put two sheets on the bed. One tucked all the way in and then a... More

We just stayed at the Matador for the last 3 nights, and I was very pleasantly surprised. I am used to staying at much newer, "fancier" resorts. Although the Matador was neither of those - one thing I can say it was ... is ... CLEAN! And that's really what matters most when I go away. I could not get... More

Thank you so much for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The couches are that way because of where we are located. We have had cloth before, but with the mix of people sitting on them in wet bathing suits from the pool, ocean and sand, they just didn't hold up and would get rather stinky...YUCK!... More

I was totally surprised when I arrived here. Check in was a breeze and the woman was so friendly. She gave us coupons for places in the area and also recommended some places to eat other than the boardwalk. We had a room with the bedroom in the back with a door which was great for privacy if you are... More

My extended family recently chose the Matador for our reunion. It was the perfect choice! The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, the staff was very helpful and friendly, the location was great, and we had the use of the Hospitality Room for several days.

The motel was very clean and the staff were all friendly and helpful. The location of this motel is also very good. It is where the boardwalk starts in North Wildwood. I will definitely be going back again.
