Just returned from an amazing 10 nights a the surf heaven.this motel has the best location ! One block away from the boardwalk and a couple of blocks from the beach ! Carl and donna are really friendly and make you feel really like familly. The rooms are very clean and the service is amazing. Overall these 10 days were the best i ever had in wildwood.
From Marc and the familly!

We just returned from a week at Surf Haven. We stayed July 22-29. We stayed in the larger apartment this year and it was wonderful. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. On top of that it is extremely affordable for a family. The kids love playing in the pool after the beach or waterpark. The pool and all areas are kept extremely clean and this is done daily. THe owners Donna and Carl are the best!!! I just cannot say enough about how friendly and outgoing they are. They do everything in their power to make sure you ae comfortable and having a great time. We always meet exceptionally nice people when we stay and we enjoy that. My son loves playing with Nicky(their grandson). I definitely would not stay anywhere else. We are already planning to go back next summer. Every time I go I dont want to leave. Thank you again Donna and Carl for another great vacation. Nicole, Wagner and kids.

My family and I stayed for ten days at the Surf Haven. The room was clean and the owners were the nicest people they couldnt do enough for you. Free 5lbs bags of ice everytime and they even had popcicles for the kids in the freezer with the ice. The pool was clean and stayed open late with music playing we had alot of fun every day and night. The kids and I have not stopped talking about it so much that we already planned our vacation to go back again next year. Thank you Donna and Carl for having us and making it our vacation spot to look forward to year after year. See ya real soon! Lambe Family Somderdale, New Jersey

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.
