“L O V E this place!!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Honestly, I have stayed at LOT's of different hotels from 1 star to 5 star and honestly this hotel by far is in my TOP 5!! The staff is like family, they are all courteous and the rooms are exceptionally clean. If you are staying in the Wildwoods, I highly suggest the Harbor Light or their sister property the Matador. They also help significantly with a large fundraiser I do down to the shore. Everyone from the group that has stayed here has absolutely LOVED it too.

Room Tip: Any room is a GREAT room!!!

Started staying here in 1994 and have been here every year since It is a great family owned operation and the staff really cares about the cleanliness and quality of your stay. You cannot beat the prices and it is close to everything. I will never go anywhere else in Wildwood.

Room Tip: all the rooms are great

We've been coming to the Harbor Light since 2007 and basically it's been a good experience. But this year we encountered several small problems with our room. The door to the room was stuck and difficult to open. Neither the bathroom door nor the bedroom door would click shut. All of these items were reported at the beginning of our stay. The door to the room was fixed, but both the bedroom and the bathroom door remained that way the length of our stay. On the first morning when we tried to make toast & coffee a fuse blew in the kitchen. When we tried to use the in-house phone to call the desk, to report the electrical problem we discovered that the phone didn't work either. So we had to walk downstairs to tell them about the electrical problem. As we were cheking out we reiterated all the problems we had, but did not even get an apology.

We just returned from another great vacation at the Harbor Light Motor Inn. This is a wonderful place to stay. It is very clean, the staff are friendly and you are close to everything. I would recommend this place to everyone. You won't be sorry! Can't wait to go back!

clean clean clean!! I am a clean freak and these bathrooms were cleaner than mine at home. Great spot and for the price can't beat it.

Two pools so no crowds. VERY family friendly.

Will be staying there again next year for sure

A friend of mine recommended this hotel last year when they stayed during the BBQ fest. Upon her review, I decided to book a room this year. Family friendly hotel. I have 2 small children and the location was only 2 blocks to the beach and a short walking distance to the festivities. I have a new appreciation for North wildwood. Great restaurants, really clean and a lot more relaxing. The hotel was such. The pool was crystal clear. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were immaculate. Had such a great vacation and will definitely return next year.
