Every year for 23 years I have vacationed in Wildwood Crest, NJ with my family and my friends. I have stayed at countless hotels / motels down there, and none of them can compare to the Yankee Clipper. No other hotel / motel was as accomodating or helpful. The owners are very sweet and always good to me, my family... More

I couldn't have been happier with the stay. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. We walked in thursday and in 10 minutes had a reservation for saturday into sunday. Very affordable and rooms are very clean. I'm not sure you can ask for much more especially for a spur of the moment one night stay

Think Lucy and Desi or maybe even Dick Van Dyke; a stay here will definitely bring back the vibes of the 50's-60's. Very dated but also clean. Being by the ocean and also being old the room cannot help but be a little musty and if you have allergies you may want to bring along an ionizer. The beds are... More

Room was in shameful need of updating. Have never seen furniture like that in my life - turquoise pleather sofa shaped like a backwards "L" in the living room and in the separate were 2 small beds. Other than the location I seriously don't know how this place stays open! There are grills, but you are not allowed to eat... More

We stayed here in July with our children for a night. Updated, it is not but here are the pros & cons. Pros: Clean! Felt comfortable with everything. Spacious enough, our 2 & 4 year old took the separate bedroom and slept well. We slept in the full sized pull out bed in the living area which converts back to... More

Front desk was very friendly! The pool is an awesome temp., esp after laying on the beach all day which is very close! Free wifi! You truly can't beat it for the price! I don't know why people complained about the pool temperature, it's a pool.. not a sauna. Not to mention the pool was very clean!

I read the reviews, I know a lot of people have their own opinions, I know when going on vacation you want to save money on your place to stay so you can do other things. I'm telling you the beds are bad I never stayed anywhere where they had these kind of mattresses,70's maybe? The bathrooms are probably at... More

My family and I have been visiting the Yankee Clipper every summer for about 9 years! We love the staff, the maids are always friendly, do what you ask and clean up very well! Sure the furniture is outdated but its bearable, its not like you're sitting on a pile of rocks or anything! The pool is a little bit... More

We were in Wildwood the weekend of the firemen's conv. Rooms were at a premium and the prices were too. We stopped at 3 motels, looked at 3 rooms, w/a cost of $138-150 a night. All rooms were shabby and old and there were noisy parties going on so we decided to pass on any of those.We opted for a... More
