“Our home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2010

My fiance David and I have been staying here for the past 5 years and God willing we will be back for another 5! We just love Cathy and Frank and we always feel so taken care of when we stay.

Like many we checked the motel out before booking it!! And we chose this place due to the outstanding reviews online. However, once we arrived we were greated by a not so friendly woman at the front desk, then proceeded to our room which was extremely tiny but clean!! The towels which were provided were just stacked on the back of the toilet which I find totally unsanitary and disgusting. Also there were no hooks in the bathroom to hang your towels, in fact there were no hooks in the room at all. There was a small shelf hanging on the wall with a hanging rod. We had friends that were staying in Wildwood the same weekend and they met us over at our hotel to go to the beach and dinner (since we were closer to the beach) but they were harassed by the management and told they have no business being on the property since they were not PAYING customers!! Well we were and I have never had a problem with meeting people at hotels that I have stayed at before but these owners made it an issue!!! Also there were signs posted that there is no loitering on the balcony's after 11 pm but the first night we arrived the owners were on theirs until the early morining hours (1230) am !! If you want to have rules maybe you should lead by example. O and one more thing the floor mat for the bathroom was a complete joke it looked like a placemat at a diner and did not help one bit I don't know why they even bother handing them out because it does not soak up any water!!! They have two grills on the property however one was not working at all and the other had a broken ignitor!! I will never stay here again and would not have complained had the owners been more hospitable!!! Don't bother giving these people your money stay somewhere else!!!!

Frank & Kathy are wonderful as the owners/caretakers of The Condor Motel. We are always treated warmly when we arrive each year. It tooks us 3 tries to find a place that we emjoyed. The motel is just steps away from the boardwalk. The rooms are what you would expect for a beach vacation. Very comfortable. The pool is small, but it is refreshing after a day on the beach. Frank is out everyday taking care of the grounds. Kathy is a gracious hostess. We look forward to our vacation every year because we know we are well taken care of. It feels like coming home to Wildwood!

We have visited North Wildwood for many years now and this is the first time we stayed at the Condor. I can say without a doubt it is the cleanist motel at the Jersey shore. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit. The deck just outside our room was great for relaxing and eating outdoors. There is a wonderful sun deck with 2 very nice Jen-air grills. The grills are popular but the other guests who were using them offered to let us cook at the same time, sharing the grill. The housekeepers were great. My kids like to sleep in, so the housekeeper came back later to make sure she could give us fresh towels and clean our unit. We even witnessed the housekeeper cleaning the vents of the room fans with a small brush and bleech. My wife is a fanatic about cleanliness and this motel lived up to her standards. The other great thing about the Condor is how convienent it is to the beach and boardwalk. You do not have to cross any streets to get on to the beach or boardwalk. You are at the waters edge in less than a 4 minute walk. Great for running back to use the bathroom or to get something. Plus there is a playground right as you enter the beach which our 11 year old could walk to with her older brother and we could watch them from one of the decks. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we booked a 3 bedroom unit for next summer . If you want convience, cleanliness, nice faciliites, a very reasonable price and a friendly staff, you want the Condor. The owners are Kathy and her family and they will make you feel welcomed.

Just got back from another great weekend at the condor motel and going back down on labor day weekend. The motel is only steps from the beach and the boardwalk. The pool is crystal clear and clean. They have a large sundeck with good view of the ocean, they also have large grills and a hospitality room with coffee in the morning. The owners and staff always make our stay pleasant and enjoyable. We always stay in the type 6 room as we have family and friends that come down for a night or two. The rooms are clean comfotable. Tom and Glenn.

I booked this motel after reading all the positive reviews and I must say I am astonished anyone would rate this establishment so highly. The room we were in smelled like mold and the sheets were damp and smelled of mildew. The "full kitchen" did not even have a coffee pot...it had a percalator instead. The pool didn't open until 10am even though there was never a life guard there. I stayed with my family and my 5 month old. I was afraid to put her down anywhere in the room because of how filthy and smelly the room was. In the bedroom there is a huge window with no curtains so at night there is so much light steaming in it is hard to sleep. I will say the location of the motel is nice, but that doesn't make up for all it's other issues.

We understand you are entitled to your opinion but we feel we should address your issues with the motel. After our guest check out and prior to new guest arriving, all rooms are thoroughly cleaned with bleach and cleaning products. The linens are changed and replaced with clean ones. We would never allow our guest to check into a room that is dirty, smelly or moldy. Our head housekeeper, employed with us for 4 years, inspects every room prior to allowing any guest to check in. All bedrooms have vertical blinds or curtains on the window, depending on the unit. Rooms with “full kitchens” are our three bedroom units and they do have coffee makers. Rooms with “kitchenette” have percolators (which is a perk coffee pot). Plus, we provide complimentary coffee in our hospitality room for our quests every morning. The pool opens at 10am as a courtesy to our quest with rooms around the pool area and to allow time for proper cleaning. The state law of New Jersey does not require a lifeguard for a pool of our size.
It is unfortunate you felt you had an unpleasant stay.
