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

My boyfriend and I were looking for a decent place to stay for a weekend trip to Wildwood. While pricey for the level of accomodation, the El Ray Motel was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room is VERY small and there is an issue with humidity (the floors were slippery the entire time even though... More

We stay at the El Ray for a week while our daughter dances at the Convention Center. The proximity to the boardwalk is optimum, the rooms clean and well kept, but most of all the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Hanna do all they can to ensure that our stay is top notch. They are so friendly, welcoming, and attend to... More

This place had what my wife and I were looking for. Room was a decent size at a great price. The owners were great people who made sure we had everything we need on daily basis. The pool was clean as was the property. The distance to the beach, boardwalk, and the liquor store (LoLz) was very close as well.... More

We have been staying at this motel for about 16 years. We come every 2 to 3 years. My family really enjoys staying here including my parents. The owners are like family to us, that have watched our family grow overs the years. We were even more excited to see all the new remodeling. Great pool!!! A block away from... More
