My family, 2 Adults and boys 16 yrs old, stayed at Surf Song from Monday through Thursday. We found this hotel by calling other hotels and they recommended Surf Song since we wanted to stay in North Wildwood close to the beach and pier. I always read the reviews to help make my vacation a be a better stay and I usually go for the Bad reviews to find out what I can do to make sure my vacation will be the best it can. I am so pleased to say that the bad reviews I have read could not be farther from the truth! Darlene and her office staff were the nicest people and my boys and I were treated very nicely. In fact you hardly knew anyone was there unless you went into the office for assistance or saw the maids coming in the morning, and they were more than happy to accommodate anything we needed (wasn't much since we are easily pleased). We had a convenient parking spot right up front, (Stayed in room 220) easy to get in and out of. In relation to the pier it was right by the first pier which has some of the best rides and was very safe even at night. No drunk fools walking around that I could see. The neighbors were also nice too so when you smoked a cigarette on the porch there was usually someone to gab with :-) As for some tips while you are there: (this is why we read these things!! LOL)
*If you're a courteous family you will enjoy yourself. If your children are rude and cursing then maybe not the place for you.
*There is a coffee pot but no coffee in the room so bring some coffee with you so you can brew up some in the morning! If not, there is complimentary coffee by the pool every morning with sugar, creamer and to go cups.
*The Kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots, cups, silverware and all accessories you can use in a kitchen while your on vacation! No need to bring anything there.
*Hotel has no ice machine but there are trays in the freezer but fill them when you get there so you have ice for the cooler when you go to the beach!
*The TV's dont get many channels in the bedroom but in the living-room there was plenty and the TV was able to hook up a Playstation 3 to it as well. Also a DVD Player was there so if your an HBO, Showtime fan bring movies. We barely watched TV but we weren't there to do that since the piers shut down at midnight, we were usually tired by then.
*Bathrooms are basic but very Clean!! Bring your own shampoo, conditioner. and toothpaste as these are not provided. I do this anyway ;-)
*Showers had OK pressure, not great but the soap did come out of my hair and did not get cold. The bottom of the shower did fill up with water as you showered if you were in there for a long time.
*If you smoke (obviously not in the room) you may want an ashtray for your porch. There is one on each floor but only at each end and by the elevators and the ashes make a mess. I bought one.
*If your shopping on the Boardwalk, you can make deals with the vendors just like in NYC.
*The switches were a little backward on the wall but It just takes a little getting used to.
*The pool was always clean and open when it was scheduled, Wish it was a little later than 8pm ;-( But bring your own beach/pool towels, there are no pool towels out there.
*If you buy your children the green laser pointers that are all over the boardwalk monitor them or the police will come. It is illegal to point them in other peoples dwellings and dangerous as well.
*If your getting wristbands for the rides, Wednesday includes two extreme rides with your band! Make Wednesday a day for the pier!!
All in all we had an outstanding time and are looking forward to going back soon!!
Thank you Surf Song!!
