We've had our ups and downs with hotels in Wildwood, and finally were directed here by a friend. Well, they were right. Adamo could NOT be nicer and more accommodating. Rooms are very clean - be careful about that door latch that says 'do not disturb'! Without your glasses, if you happen to land on it, they won't clean your... More

My husband and I have stayed here two years in a row and we can't wait to come again. The motel is extremely clean and excellent oceanfront location but the main reason we return is the staff. Adam the owner is very accommodating and is a great resource. Jerry the caretaker is absolutely amazing - he goes above and beyond... More

I give the Gondolier Motel five stars. But don't expect a cookie cutter chain hotel that can be found in the tourist district of any large city. When I head to the Jersey Shore, especially Wildwood, I'm looking for character and personality in my stay. And the Gondolier has both. It's a family owned hotel, one of three. I can... More

Clean rooms, daily maid service, fresh bath linens daily. Very friendly staff. They also own American Safari, and Aztec. This property is right off the beach with parking for one car per room. Features a nice swimming pool, sun deck and free Wi-Fi. A TV in both the living room and bedroom. Limited DirecTv service. I would stay here again.

This was our second trip to the Gondolier and they never disappoint. It has a great location on the crest but close enough to the boardwalk. There are bike rentals and a park with basketball court right across the street. The rooms and bathroom are extremely clean and the sheets and blankets smelled like they had just been washed. The...

Great Shore hotel, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again! The rooms were nice size and very clean. Pool was very clean. Property was also well patrolled at night. Ocean front location made for a short walk to the beach and also very close by were Bike rentals, restaurants and just steps to the Boardwalk

Great location, great staff, good value for your money. The only issues I had was the amount of smokers smoking in common areas, especially by the pool near where kids are playing. Also we had room 315, the room was in the back which I thought was better and more private. But the laundry room for the hotel towels was... More

This is a nice family run place, rooms are clean, staff is friendly. Coffee and cookies each morning. My kids loved the pool and the quick walk to the boardwalk and beach. If your looking for a nice place in the crest I'd check it out!

The Gondolier Motel is a wonderful family owned motel located in Wildwood N.J. Adam and family are friendly and courteous. The rooms are always clean. The pool is spacious. The views of the ocean are spectacular. Just little stroll to the beach. The Gondolier is 3 short blocks from Wildwoods famous boardwalk.
