It was a nice experience to be there with all of my friends and family. Great people, always helpful and pleasant for direction and activities in the area to do. I would definitely return there again, not loud or crazy like boardwalk area but still close to the action.

We've stayed in many hotels/motels in various locations around the world. The staff at the Gold Crest provided some of the best service we've ever experienced. They treat you like family. The room and premises were clean and well kept. When we weren't on the boardwalk, we

Based on a recent September 2018 stay in a 2nd floor oceanfront balcony with kitchenette with family including young children. Pros: *Relaxing location near Centennial Park especially for travelers with kids or adults looking to exercise. *Extremely clean room. This speaks

We had a very nice Labor Day weekend at the Gold Crest Motel. We arrived early and we were able to check into our room at 1:00 with only a few minutes wait. Initially, we were given a different room than the one we reserved on expedia, but the issue was resolved quickly

My wife and I are seasoned Wildwood visitors for over 25 years. We have stayed in many different motels and condos all those times and I feel we are well qualified to give an honest review, good or bad. We decided on the Gold Crest based on a recommendation from a friend and

I’m so sorry - I don’t know. I’m sure if you contact the office, they will be happy to give you that information.

It's tough for me to answer because I don't have young children anymore. I did see young children there, but honestly I can't give my opinion on the owners demeanor towards children. I can only tell you based on her response to my honest and diplomatic review, I found her to be insulting and disrespectful to me, and my fair review of her hotel. I suggest reading all reviews. My suggestion with a large group is to rent a condo for the week, either at Monarch or Aqua Beach. They are both very close to Boardwalk, and bike rentals. Most condos sleep 6 perhaps 7, and with a large group, you can rent two, and split it between families. I know it pricey, but you can have all the comforts of home as a group, and enjoy the pools and short distance to Boardwalk. Gold Crest, although walking distance is too far from the Boardwalk, it's not a place I would have stayed when my then teenagers wanted to go to Boardwalk alone, and walk home at night. I can tell you the motel was very quiet at night, and that made it more enjoyable. If you have a noisy bunch, which you openly admit (good for you) then I'd consider staying closer to the action! Gold crest does have a concert across the street on Saturday's. I enjoyed that tremendously, and I'm sure your family would too but ages 5-18, try looking closer to Boardwalk. You wont want to be dragging the little ones home down to Gold Crest, and you'll feel better letting your 15-18 year olds chill at the Boardwalk for a little longer without the parents! Happy Finding, and Book Early!
