I had excellent service! Room was clean and also cleaned every day. Tile floors were also mopped everyday .the motel was older, but that's part of the nostalgia of wildwood! Owner's went out of their way to accommodate. Already booked for next year!

So I can't say I have fond memories of the El Ray. It's location is the most redeeming factor. We had a queen room, which generally just made me feel depressed. It was so small and dark, and that's depressing when you're there for beach vacation. The staff was really nice. The room was cleaned daily, but it literally was...

This was our first stay at this hotel. The price was great for the room we had. Double suite with a private balcony. Room was clean and they did a good job everyday keeping you stocked with fresh towels and bedding. The management was nice along with the staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It's one block to...

The hotel was disappointing when i pulled up, especially in comparison to the surrounding hotels. I made the best of it....room was clean and i had my own balcony which made it doable. Very close to beach and dinner. Never had to move my car!! Staff waa nice. Overall, vacation was ok but i wouldn't go back to this particular...

I booked this location based on the photos that I saw on the internet!!! Those photos showed rooms that looked roomy and clean but they are far from that!! This is the most disgusting stinky filthy gross place I have ever seen!!! I wouldn't rent this place for wild animals and they're used to the elements!!! Although it was difficult...

Terrible stay, paid for a deluxe room, got a closet. No phone no ice no soda machine, no outlets in bathroom, or anywhere for that matter. Couldn't walk around the room. Was told it was deluxe because it had a fridge and microwave. Very disappointed, would never stay here again.

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!

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...
