Great time at Surf Haven once again, this place is awesome. Never any issues. It is right near the beach. They never rent to unfavorable people AKA high school kids, and it is a family atomsphere. TBone

My wife and I just got back from from our trip to Wildwood NJ. We stayed at the Surf Haven Motel. We had the time of our lives, Donna and Carl were the best.... Anything you need they will take care of you... The pool and pool side area very very nice. The pool is very clean. Make sure you take advantage of the two huge grills and picnic area at no charge. Also our room was excellent.. It was very clean, it had a stove, microwave, fridge they also had silverware. Did I mention a coffee pot? They had plates and cups too. With your own personal sink. Make sure you take advantage of all that and save alot of money on food. I have to say we got there about 2:00 on Friday, we parked the car and did not get back in until we were come home..We walked every where.. We are planning another trip in September, we will be staying at the Surf Haven, with out a doubt. Thanks Carl and Donna....

. .We have been coming to surf haven for years. We have never had an issue. If we did, it was usually minor and Donna and her husband would take care of it immediately.. great family atmosphere, hotel cleaned daily. Everyone is professional, right on down to the folks that clean the room everyday. So, if your thinking about a weekend Getaway or a week down the shore. Make sure you consider surf haven!!! tony from philly...

We've been staying at the Surf Haven Motel for quite a few years and we were upset to hear of the poor review one 'guest' rated the motel. We've been coming to North Wildwood for decades. This isnt one of the newer motels but definetely one of the most accommodating and as a comfy family spot the cost is very reasonable compared to other similar motels in the area. The room was cozy and adequate.The AC was on and the room was already cool before we checked in! The pool was clean and the outdoor grills were new. We will be back again. Donna has always gone above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We have already asked to reserve the larger corner appartment for next year, so we may bring our whole family along.

I have been staying vacationing at the Surf Haven for several years now and will not stay anywhere else! Donna, Carl and their staff are friendly and very accommodating to all my families needs. My room is always clean at check in and the daily maid service keeps it that way. The pool is crystal clear and a great place to refresh after the beach. I have told friends, coworkers, and family members about this great motel, and after their stay they thank me! It is 1 1/2 blocks from the beach and boardwalk, it is clean, safe, and very friendly place to stay! The only problem is you may not want to go home!

What can I say, this place just does it right. From the moment you check in your made to feel right at home. Donna is warm and friendly, just so pleasant to talk to. Carl is on top of everything to make your stay enjoyable .The location is perfect, walking distance to everything you need. The pool is awesome, rooms are clean. It has a great picnic area outside the pool with 2 grills that are always kept in pristine condition. Me and my family have been coming to the Surf Haven for the last 5 years, and we are never disappointed. Only negative...the palm trees aren't real. Thanks Donna And Carl for another great time this year!!!!.... Tom..Tampa FLA

This is my second stay at Surf Haven. It is 1 1/2 blocks from the beach in a nice quiet location in North Wildwood (family-oriented). I stayed there last summer and just completed a week there this year (July 15-22). Once again, Donna and Carl made me feel welcome. We rented the apartment-style room upstairs at the end of the balcony and had a lovely time. The beds were so comfortable. It was a very hot week at the beach and it was nice to have the air conditioner work so well. We had two televisions and our Wifi worked great! The new flooring was nice....I prefer a room without carpeting; I think it is a cleaner choice! The service is wonderful and very friendly. The bedroom and living room/kitchenette area were clean, as well as the bathroom (daily) with plenty of fresh, soft linens. My favorite part is the pool/barbeque area!!! Carl had two new large gas grills and they are scrubbed daily. The patio tables and area is constantly cleaned and hosed down. I really enjoyed cooking out and hanging out there with my family. The pool is very clean, and we were in all the time! Great water temp. and continuous music is streamed in, poolside (one of my favorite parts!) But the absolute best part about Surf Haven is Donna and Carl....hands down!!! They are so welcoming, nice, accommodating and hospitable!! I stay with my children/family and it is a great family environment. Whatever we needed, Donna and Carl provided. As a matter of fact, we just booked again for this Labor Day weekend....my third time there...and I can't wait to go back! Andrea from PA
