A good motel offering big rooms fully equipped with all kitchen utensils and a barbecue station. A fascinating ocean view and a walking distance from the Boardwalk. The motel also offer a pool and mini golf. It is disappointing that after all these advantages the motel management was very rude and unprofessional while dealing with their residents, definitely a point... More

Place is extremely old and dirty. Dust everywhere. Rugs are gross bedding and beds even worse. Would not recommend to anyone. Rooms are musty and air conditioning barely does anything. Pictures of the room are highly deceiving. Small and cramped and way over priced.

My husband stayed here as a child every summer for years. We now live in Florida and came up to visit family and decided to show our kids what we grew up with. We love this motel. It's retro... The basics haven't changed... But has been updated, painted, cleaned etc. The owner takes great care in keeping the place clean... More

We ended up staying here, because all the other hotels were booked and no one had any vacancies for the weekend. This motel was very close to the beach. but that was it! This place was an older motel and not updated at all. When we arrived we were told the air conditioner was broken and would soon be fixed... More

Stayed here last weekend while on a mini vacay in Wildwood. Great location! VERY close to the beach (approx a block, depending on how close you want to be to the water), clean, large beds that are very comfortable, and the woman who runs it is a sweetheart! Hoping to stay here when I come back to Wildwood next summer!... More

Listen, I read all of the reviews for Gold Crest - both good and bad. Here's my two cents.... When going down the shore for a vacation, no matter how long or short, you want a nice clean comfortable environment. The Gold Crest offers that. You also want views of the ocean, correct? The Gold Crest offers that, as well.... More

I understand this is an older hotel however that is not an excuse for the rooms not being clean. Upon entering the room, there was "something" caked on the bathroom door frame at eye level. I don't understand how this could be missed. Fortunately I had Clorox wipes with me and scrubbed it off. I didn't want to see or... More

Luckily, my experience was better than the other reviews I've read. The rooms were dated, but nice enough. It is a Wildwood hotel, so I guess we can chalk that up to nostalgia! The wifi is free, but only worked outside of the room. And I would recommend bringing your own pillows!!

I'm fully aware that this is Wildwood and many places don't live up to normal cleanliness standards. This place was AWEFUL. If I walked on the carpet without flip flops, my feet turned black. It wasn't until about 3pm that the staff would get around to cleaning the room every day. After the room was "cleaned" I would find that... More
