“Hotel Pictures”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

The hotel you are showing on this site is not the Golden Rail it is Montego Bay. The pictures were taken looking across the street not at the Golden Rail!!!! The hotel is a great place to stay but it is a no frills hotel! Close to the beach and the tram cars will take you down the boardwalk to all the action.

We have been going to North Wildwood for years and have stayed at multiple motels/hotels and this is the first one I'm actually writing a review on. This place is comfortable. It's one of those places where you check-in and feel at home. It's location to the boardwalk is perfect and the owners are 100% great people. I would definitely come back and stay. The room was a bit outdated, but who cares!? It's about location, friendly staff, and a comfortable room for us. After years of coming to wildwood, I wished this hadn't been the first time I stayed at the Golden Rail. This is place is great. Put on your flip flops and have a great time!

My first trip to Wildwood in 1984 - I stayed at this motel with my future husband and his brother and mom. They had stayed in this motel every summer for 12 years.

We always had a lot of fun! Sadie was a wonderful woman that they got to know. I would highly recommend staying here - it's just 1 block off the boardwalk and easy to access anything on the boardwalk.

The Golden Rail has become our go to place at the shore! It is always clean, the owners are always accommodating, and the pool area is beautiful and relaxing. The location can't be beat!! We usually get a promo with bedroom and kitchenette which has everything we need for our seat! The heated pool is immaculate, and there is always enough lounge chairs to go around! The best part of the pool area is the umbrella table to have a nice snack/meal at!! Overall, Rocco and Susan can look forward to seeing us many times in the future!!!!

Wonderful family/couples motel just one block off beach and boardwalk. Very clean. Onsite owners do their best to help guests feel welcome and safe. Heated pool. Roomy accommodations. Terrific housekeeping service sensitive to the needs of early and late risers. A must for first time and returning guests. We will be back!

We recently stayed here not knowing a thing about this hotel and were pleasantly surprised! The owners are so kind and attentive the 2 bedroom suite with a pullout couch and kitchen was very large.. it could use alittle updating but overall very very clean and right across the street from the beach and boardwalk! We will definitley be back!

This place is ok as far as the room and its clean enough. However the owners are AWFUL. They yelled at us for playing around with our kids in the pool, seemed to always be lurking and watching you. Friends of ours met us at our hotel ( downstairs mind you, they never even came in the room) and the owners charged a "guest fee". Best part was, on checkout she didn't say a word about it and proceeded to charge my credit card as soon as I left. I had to have my bank reverse the charge.
