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

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. We all had a great time at the beach and the boardwalk. I'd like to... More

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.

We have made this resort a family tradition for the last 10 years. Our rooms have always been clean. Located at the far end of the boardwalk, having a small playground in front and easy access to the beach makes this an easy choice for our annual trip "Down the Shore". Multiple grills and a pools make it a no... More

The room was clean and the view was spectacular. It has a mini kitchen with all the supplies you need to cook at home.. The hotel is right at the beginning of the boardwalk. I would highly recommend staying here for a pleasant shore getaway.
