So let me preface this review by saying that I’ve been going to Wildwood for 40 years. I love it. However, it is certainly an acquired taste. Lots of things are ripoffs and the hotels are lousy and overpriced. If you’ve never stayed here before you might be aghast at what they charge $300 a night for during the summer. All of this to say that this rating is by Wildwood standards...not normal hotel standards. The Imperial 500 is super clean by Wildwood standards. The room seems to be newly renovated. I appreciate the faux wooden floors. Shore carpet is almost always gross and moldy so the faux wood floors were a good call. The beds were clean. They were thin and hard as a rock, no give whatsoever. However, I’ll take this over some of the worn out, floppy-edged beds all too common in the Wildwoods. The bathroom was somewhat renovated, though personally the swimsuit hanging line in the bathtub isn’t my favorite. The towel holder was rusty (see Picture) which is kinda gross considering it touches your bath towels. Also, as per every hotel in wildwood, the towels are super thin and scratchy. I don’t believe you can get a thick, fluffy bath towel in all of Wildwood though. The hotel is one block off the beach and nearby a park and the Wildwood Crest Library. If you don’t mind walking a bit, you can definitely walk to the boardwalk. The pool was in good shape and heated, which was a nice feature to have in September. There’s also a well maintained arcade w a few games and an air hockey machine. The price for mid September was only about $75 a night. This was one of the best prices I could find for that weekend (9/18-9/20). I would definitely come back here. By wildwood standards this is a great deal for the price. Everyone I dealt with at the hotel was friendly and helpful. When picking a Wildwood hotel I generally am thrilled if the hotel isn’t skeevy and not too ridiculously overpriced. The Imperial 500 passes the test.

Clean, clean, Clean. Owners are professional and check in is a breeze. Rooms are well cared for and very comfortable. NotLocation is wonderful with good views of the ocean. Close to bike rental and the end of the boardwalk. Quiet and family friendly. Can't beat it!

The best motel that I've stayed at in the crest. Very clean, updated, easy check-in/check-out, friendly staff, and great location. I love that the rugs were replaced with tile floors throughout. We had a very nice two-room suite. It had a nice size refrigerator, microwave and two coffee makers (automatic drip & Keurig). Great pool, 4 BBQ grills with stainless steel tables next to them (to place/prep food), picnic area, shuffleboard, corn hole, two pool tables, nice sun-deck, and game room. I can't say enough about this motel. It's great. I'm already thinking about my next visit.

Love staying here. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are really nice and comfortable. Rooms were just redone and are really nice. The view is amazing and the beach is so close. Great place to stay and the only place we’ll go when we go to Wildwood.

The hotel is very clean. Great location, 1 block from the beach and and upper sun deck with a view. Walking distance to park with live music and bike rentals. The trolley runs during peak season to the boardwalk. Great place to stay with family.
