The Matador's location is awesome. North Wildwood's shorter walk to the beach as compared to the 1/2 mile trek when staying in Wildwood or the Crest really makes a huge difference especially when you're carrying chairs, coolers, etc.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a few hiccups, too minor to detail, and the staff were very quick to respond. Maid service was quick and efficient, extra towels were never a problem and the maids were happy to work around you. Also, the room we had, had central a/c which cooled both rooms, that's a big plus for me!
Last year we stayed at the Adventurer in Wildwood Crest with the same amt of people (4 adults, 2 11 yr old boys). The Adventurer's 2 room efficiency was spacious and we were disappointed with the smaller size of the Matador's efficiency, but the Adventurer charged additional $ for extra people (their rates are based on 4 persons even tho they advertised their room as accommodating 6) whereas the Matador did not charge anything additional.
The only real critique I would offer the Matador would be:
1. Laundry facilities should be updated. Washers and dryers
are old and small causing the necessity for multiple
wash loads & additional $ for drying time
2. Grills for guests - they only had 2 small grills. For the volume
of guests they have, they should have more grills. We
attempted to use the grills several times and never could.
All in all, our stay at the Matador was pleasant and would stay there again!
