We stayed for three days here and loved it. So close to boardwalk and pet friendly. The staff was nice and friendly. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds were very comfortable. We look forward to returning again to the RusMar.

The rooms were very clean and it was great being able to have 2 dogs with us in the suite. The staff were great, friendly, and very helpful especially Ed! He was outstanding. Plus the hotel is located just across the street from the beach.

We stayed for a lacrosse tournament 7/17 thru 7/19. Room was very clean!!! Not a big room, but since we were out on the beach and boardwalk most of the day, it was perfect. A/C work great. Only complaint would be that the wifi signal was weak / non-existant inside the rooms. Signal was fine outside your front door. Would... More

Hey thanks for all the nice comments. Especially the endorsement of how our rooms are so clean you can't even tell dogs have been in them. We wash the comforters after each stay and our tile floors allow our mops to make every room brand new again! Hope to see you back real soon! More

Was looking for a hotel in Wildwood that would allow me to bring my Golden Retriever. The Rus Mar was the only hotel that is actually 5 star quality and accepts dogs. The price was competitive if not the best, and you get all the amenities you need. Fridge, coffeemaker, DirecTV, daily maid and more! They also offer beach item... More

This was my second year staying at this dog friendly facility. I refuse to travel unless I can bring my dogs. I love them like they are my children. We came back to the Rus Mar because of how clean the place is. The bed linens and towels are immaculate, the rooms smell amazing, and the property is kept neat... More

The first point is that this motel is dog Friendly!!!!! Wildwood just opened a section of the beach that is dog friendly all year-just look for the big red fire hydrant. The dog beach is within a good walking distance but car is a better bet-just park at a lot-just $5 a day. As for the rooms they were immaculately... More
