The owners are very pleasant, average hotel, had good amenities; such as a "small" kitchenette and a full fringe. It's within walking distance of board walk (about 3 blocks, give or take). There are grills on the premises, good size pool and there's a pizzeria next to it! The kids love it, so I was happy! Clean room!

The grills made this trip even more awesome. Definitely staying here next summer. The rooms were clean and big enough for my family. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Overall awesome time for my family and I

I stayed at the Ray with my 5 kids and husband. The pool was clean, there was a patio, and multiple grills for our use. It felt like home, even better!! We had a balcony where we went out at night for dinner. Next year, we will also be staying at the Ray. The fridge in our room was big... More

Took our money then acted like he didn't know we were there for prom weekend. The place was filthy, no upgrades done since the 1960's. I would not recommend these deceitful people to anyone. It is an absolute dump and should be closed down. They use paper and scotch tape to number the rooms.

This was our 2nd summer there (see my first review of this place: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g46931-d1877511-r169171155-El_Ray_Motel-Wildwood_Cape_May_County_New_Jersey.html ) Anyway, it was like returning home! The owner was very nice and remembered us (or at least pretended to). The room was less furnished than last time we stayed there (no armoire (sp?)/dresser/entertainment unit) and therefore we didn't have much room for our clothing. We... More

So, wanting to save a few bucks, we picked this place for our stay in Aug 2015. Yes, it's not much but than again, we weren't paying a lot for the stay either. The room was small, but adequate. The bathroom was small but updated and clean. Not much room for your things but it was OK. A little tight... More

When I booked a room I booked it because they had a queen size bed available, when we got into the room it was actually two double beds but that was just the beginning. The room itself was filthy, food on the floor, cigarette stubs on the floor (non-smoking was advertised), the tile floor itself was dirty and appeared uncleaned,... More

Is this the greatest room ever, no. But it was worth the price we paid. If youre only using the room to sleep, it's just a block away from the beginning of the boardwalk and right onto the beach. The Internet is dreadful, but we really weren't in the room all that long other than to sleep. The room we... More
