“Marlane Motel-Home Away From Home”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We LOVE staying at the Marlane Motel and of alllll the motels/hotels in Wildwood we always attempt to book our yearly visit at the Marlane!!!! Lisa and her husband are always very welcoming and polite. The recent renovations with the new paint and windows was noticed as soon as we pulled in to park.

If you're looking for a Great place to stay that's not only Clean, Close to the Boardwalk, Affordable, and has owners that truly care about you and your stay please look no further than the Marlane Motel. You won't be disappointed :)))

Room Tip: 201 or 202 is our Favorite if you're traveling as a couple and seeking a King Size bed.

We stayed there from july 28 to aug. 2nd. We appreciated the calmness of the motel, everything was clean, and what to say about Lisa... She's just amazing! Even though we arrived a day early than we were supposed to (my fault!!!) we did get a really great service! Lisa and her mother in law helped us find a motel for that night because the Marlane Motel was full and made sure our room was ready asap the next morning because we had to check out early from the other place. When we got there around 10:30 on sunday morning, our room was totally ready for us! Everything is user friendly; you can use the motels boogie boards and some beach chairs to go to the beach, you can use the BBQs on the patio to cook yourself a good meal instead of always going to the restaurants and the host are there to make your stay as good as it can be. The housekeepers were really friendly and I have to say, the most honnest! One morning, we left for the beach and forgot a 20$ bill on the bed. We thought that they would think it was their tip and take it but no; they left it on the desk. Thanks for your honnesty ladies! The pool is super clean, the room is really comfortable. One thing that we thought was great was that it is near everything; the beach, the boardwalk, the waterparks and the amusements parks. We will be back to this motel for sure and we will recommand this hotel to the people we know. And needless to say THAT WE DID NOT GET DISCOUNTS FOR OUR GOOD REVIEW!

We just spent the last two days at Marlane Motel and it lives up to its great reviews, clean, quiet, and comfortable, Lisa and her husband make sure everyone is happy and they work hard on the upkeep of the grounds, its a family place and kids love it , its close to the boardwalk but not noisy.

The only little problem we had was that the air conditionaire was a bit too loud ,but like all units thru. the wall its louder than central air. All in all , money well spent.
looking forward to going back and staying at the Marlane Motel.

Room Tip: this is a small motel only about 25 rooms so book your trip early , the good ones fill up quickly

Stayed three nights last week at the Marlane and it was excellent. The place (our room, the pool, and the building's grounds) is incredibly clean and well cared for and the owner is great to deal with. When we came two years ago, we stayed at a motel in the crest that was disgusting, so this was a HUGE upgrade, we will definitely stay there the next time we visit Wildwood.

This motel is great for families, it is very clean and close to the beach. My family stayed here for a week in July and were extremely pleased. I love that they have the wood floors and not carpet. The owners do a fabulous job maintaining this motel. I loved it! We hope to be coming again next year!

My wife and I first visited the Marlane last summer to get away for a couple of days...we were so impressed we decided to bring the family (two kids, a friend of our oldest daughter, and my mother) back this year and were definitely not disappointed! The Marlane is one of the nicest places either my wife or I have ever visited (and I travel quite a bit). The owners are extremely friendly, helpful, and will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The motel itself is very well maintained (and ideally located) and the atmosphere is very family-oriented (no loud parties by the pool or groups of younger adults having trouble handling their liquor). If you're looking for a clean, welcoming, relaxing place to call home for a week in Wildwood, the Marlane is definitely a great choice...my wife and I plan on returning every year from now on and look forward to seeing some of the other returning guests we have met over the last two years.

Room Tip: We've had two different types of rooms over the last two years and both were great.

The Marlane is the only place my husband and I will stay at when vacationing in Wildwood. Lisa and Chris are hospitable and very helpful when it comes to area amenities. It is a short walk to the boardwalk and the prices for a room are very reasonable. This isn't a 4 star hotel and anyone staying here shouldn't expect the finest accommodations. The rooms are clean, nice and family friendly. We are finding we have to book early to get the dates and room type we want.

Room Tip: Couples only? try to book the king room, there are only 2 of these. Family traveling together, try...
