Nice clean rooms comfy beds, relaxing pool, and friendly helpful staff. Another great feature was the rooftop lounge area, sofas, and plenty of room! I would recommend to anyone, steps from the beach and ohh, has an elevator lol. We stayed in the third floor😊

My family and I stayed in the Matador for 2 years in a row. It's a beautiful place for a vacation with our kids. The office staff was so nice, Debbie and Chino made us feel right at home, always there to help you with anything. It's a clean place and the best part is the ocean view. We can't... More

This was our first time staying in North Wildwood after staying in the Crest for over 30 years. The Matador was close to everything, staff was very friendly and helpful and always had a smile on their face. We had a poolside view on the 2nd floor and the view was perfect. Not to mention the beautiful patio on the... More

We've stayed at the Matador for the past 8 years, and have always been happy. The decks are perfect for family get togethers. The staff is helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location is absolutely the best in Wildwood. Our family has been going to the WW's for over 40 years, and we all agree the Matador...

Our family had a wonderful week at the Matador. Altogether our large family had nine rooms. Everyone on staff, from the office to the cleaning staff, were friendly and helpful. The rooms were typical hotel style rooms but they were clean and comfortable. We used their hospitality room for a family birthday and that was great place to bring together... More

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

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?
