Reviewed June 9, 2010

I've always heard mixed opinions in regard to this motel and while we have a "regular" place we stay in Wildwood, an overnight trip gave us the opportunity to try the Blue Palms (keep in mind overnight stays are not usually allowed during the summer season- a special event made it possible for us to spend a single night at the motel and is not something I'd expect the motel to allow again in the future.)

The motel is an older facility that received some upgrades in recent years but remains fairly basic, which is typical of most places in Wildwood. Our room had some fairly old furniture but everything was in decent shape and the room was clean, which is always extremely important. Blue Palm's best feature is its excellent location a mere block from the heart of the Wildwood boardwalk as well as the beach. It's entirely possible for a vacationer to park his/her car at the motel and never have to use it to go anywhere in Wildwood because so much is within walking distance.

As is the case with most Wildwood motels, the rooms all face the pool area (except those in the breezeway area) which means things can get noisy if people are hanging out in the pool area until the later hours (which happens more often than not in Wildwood). That said, we weren't kept up by any noise so either the doors are thick or the hotel had an unusually quite crowd that night.

There are more luxurious (and expensive) motels in the area, especially if you move south to WIldwood Crest, but very few have a location that beats this one.

The room was a little ruff around the edges, but overall clean and comfortable. Although I did not go in it, the pool looked very clean,which leaves one with a good impression of the place. The staff that I had dealings with was very pleasant. The location is great and all in all for the price this hotel can't be beat.

Filthy, dirty and scummy...and that's being kind. Avoid this hell-hole at all costs! Spend your money elsewhere...any where else!

If you're looking for the Ritz, The Blue Palms isn't for you. But if you need an okay hotel at an okay price, this hotel will fit the bill. The rooms were a little dingy but clean and comfortable. Ditto for the pool. The hotel was quiet at night, which is something I've heard is hard to find in Wildwood (I'd never been: my fiance told me I had to spend a weekend there at least once in my life). And the location couldn't be beat: just one block from the famed boardwalk. I would stay again...if I ever go back to Wildwood.

The staff was outstanding! The General Manager as well as the staff were extremely accomodating coupled with the convenient location, directly across from the piers and amusement and water parks. My family and I will be planning another mini-vacation before the summer ends based on the reasonably, economic rates the Blue Palms have to offer.

Blue Palms offers a friendly, professional staff, plentiful parking and a location in central Wildwood that can't be beat... just a short walk to beach, Boardwalk, restaurants and all attractions. Very clean and well-maintained, including rooms as well as pool/patio areas. Well-suited for families: reasonable rates, refrigerators in room, two nice Ducane grills, etc. I picked this motel from Trip Advisor reviews and wasn't disappointed.
