If you are looking for a place that prides itself on family fun, its the right place to be. You walk up the ramp and you are on the boardwalk. You sit on the deck at night and you are on a soothing vacation. Its that type of place that lends itself to what you make of it. the rooms are clean and the care for the hotel decks and pool are great. There is always someone sweeping and doing chores. If you need something, you call. There has never been a time whne you wait too long for anything. Maintenance and often the owners will run up to your room and do what they can to help. The really do care if your vacation is a pleasant one. On any day you will find the owners grandchildren or son walking around. There is always someone present. Its family owned and OPERATED. Just owning a place doesnt matter if you dont spend the time and monitor the facility. they do and believe me, even if something gets past them, it gets fixed as soon as they hear about it.
We go year after year and there is always a big smile and a great hello. The Matador may not have a spa or restaurant bar with umbrella drinks, but its a place that becomes familar, like a home away from home for all its guests. Now if you are a true NJ shore vacationer, thats what you truly want. Kick off your sandy shoes and relax, have fun or do whatever. The Matador offfers the warmth of family vacation. Quinn's

I have stayed here multiple times. It is right at the beginning of the boardwalk. I like that. It is also right on the beach. The life guards start right there in the morning. The motel itself, is fine. Nothing great, but nothing bad. Staff are friendly, rooms are clean, but a little small. Prices were average. I like that it gets lots of sun, and the man with the fruit truck stops right on the side street. Yummy, fresh fruit on a hot day!

This is going to be my 3rd apperance at this little quaint joint call the Matador Motel...I have to tell you this place is in the primus of prime places to stay while in Wildwood.The first time I ever came here I said to myself....What a Dump !!!!!!!!! But believe me, It grows on you..... The Rooms are not the greatest in the world,and the decor is like watching an old pilot of The Brady Bunch, while tripping on acid. ( They really need to update their furniture)....... But never the less. The staff is second to none.And the family atmosphere is wonderful..... There is no life guard on duty either....for all of you non swimmers out there..........But overall it is extremley quiet at night time.... I know it seems like I am Bashing this place....But, I'm really not.......I have some fond memories here, that cannot ever be duplicated by my family already....And to be quite frank with you, I would"nt trade them in for the world.......Matador Motel gets 4 stars im my book......I love it.......Juggernaut

We had a marvellous vacation. The hotel and staff were supurb, outstanding and a pleasure to be around. The hotel is in a prime location, great views, easy access to all amenities. The staff were very helpful, very courteous and could not do enough for us. We would highly recomend The Matador Hotel to everyone, we cannot praise them enough. The Matador Hotel in North Wildwood, NJ will be our vacation spot for many years to come.

The Matador is 1) On the beach! 2) The length of the beach from the Motel to the water is a perfect size. In the Crest the beaches are so big that in many areas they actually have a taxi service that takes you stuff to your blanket. 3) The life Guard house is just to the left hand side of The Matador and this gives our family additional comfort. 4) It is the first motel next to the North side of the 2 mile long board walk. The benefit is that it is not on the boardwalk so you do not have the people walking underneath you till 2 am and the TRAM CAR saying Watch the tram Car all night.---because it is the first motel you have access to the boardwalk w/o having to drive in. Also most of the rises for the kids is on the first pier on the North Wildwood side not the Crest side.

The motel itself is a family owned and on premise establishment that is kept very clean and offers two large decks overlooking the ocean where families can meet. Central air large flat screen cable TV's in each room. Lock boxes are available and everyone has parking. The pool is heated and kept very clean.

There are gas barbeque grills available for all guests.

My family can afford to stay at any place along the Jersey Shore but this place is the best kept secret . I have been going to this place every summer 3 weeks a year for 10 years.
