The StarLux Hotel & Suites
Ranked #1 of 75 Hotels in Wildwood
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 23, 2012

We were in Wildwood for an Irish Dance competition early last spring which was being held across the street from the hotel at the NJ Convention Center, so the convenience alone was super. The StarLux just looked appealing from the websites we checked, so we thought we'd give it a shot.....and man, we were impressed! It was just so cute, so clean, and so retro! My 10-year-old absolutely LOVES lava lamps (there's one in your room!), but our light bulb was burned out. So we asked the front desk if they could send up a maintenance person to change the bulb and he was there within 10 minutes! I know it doesn't sound like much, but that's the type of service your going to get at the StarLux........"Need a lava lamp bulb replaced? Sure! We'll be right up!" Love, Love, LOVED this place! Can't wait to spend the weekend there this spring!

We recently stayed at the Starlux Hotel in Wildwood. We spend two nights in our two room suite. It was very nicely decorated in a 1950's style. It was very clean and the furniture was in good condition. There was the bedroom and a livingroom/kitchen/dining room. There was a pocket door and the sofa opened up into a separate bed. Since we came in off season, the hotel was doing some repair work and painting. This in no way bothered us during our stay. Although we stayed there in late September, it was warm enough to enjoy the large heated swimming pool and whirlpool. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was not fancy, but adequate to get your day started. When we told my husbands parents that we where we were going to stay, they asked if we could get them a suite and take them along. Originally, they were not going to be on the same floor as we were, but when we arrived the clerk managed to get them a room right across the hall from us. This worked our great because my in-laws are elderly and it was nice having them close so we were readily available if they needed our help. We all really enjoyed our stay and would consider staying at the Starlux again if we return to Wildwood.

Room Tip: Suites above office are very nice and convenient.

We stayed at the Starlux during our visit to Morey's Fears, a haunted Halloween event that was in itself an amazing experience, definitely check that out if you haven't already.

The Starlux was in its former life the Wingate Motel, a vintage mid-century motel much like many others on the island. The Morey's bought the motel and did an extensive renovation several years ago turning it into the Starlux. The Starlux is a model of how to perfectly balance old and new. The style of the Starlux plays heavily on it's 1950's roots and takes it to a whole different level, it looks like something straight of the Jetsons and its an architectural gem. We stayed in the largest room, the 2 room suite. Our room had two bedrooms and a nice sized kitchen/living area. While most rooms have common balconies ours had a small private balcony. Our room had several large windows in it and was very bright. The walls are painted in retro patterns and we even had a lava lamp in the bedroom. Don't let the retro style fool you into thinking its old though, everything is fresh, clean, and new. I have only one complain with the room, and that was that the shower curtain rod had a problem with the spring and it fell off once. Otherwise, a perfect stay, in fact this property well surpassed my expectations which were already high. There is a nice little breakfast room where they serve a basic but good continental breakfast and a pretty large game room. The heated pool and hot tub were both open even though it was late October! The staff was hospitable and all in all I have to give this property 5/5, it is one of the best Doo-Wop properties on the island.

I just recently stayed at the Starlux during Morey's Fears and I have to say this place is amazing! The Starlux brings you back to the 50s in a modern way with updated rooms, retro furniture, and my favorite, lava lamps! This place is so clean and well kept as well! The Starlux has a complimentary breakfast (bagels, muffins, danishes, coffee and juices,) FREE bikes you can borrow during the day, and an all year hot tube. Its right in front of the Wildwoods sign, which is a great view all day, and it's walking distance from the boardwalk and other shops and restaurants. I stayed in the two bedroom and there was so much space and the balcony was a very good size. And for Morey's Fears we got $10.00s off our tickets since the Starlux is owned by the Morey's. All in all, this place is fantastic and I definitely recommend it!!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the Wildwoods sign are great!

We stayed here in the off season - a time when Wildwood is not so wild. That can make the town a little depressing, like most beach places. But the Starlux was a welcome bright spot with it's pastel tones, lava lamps and attention to cleanliness and friendly staff. It's right on the beach, making it very convenient for an anytime walk. And far enough away from the amusement piers that I'd guess it's fairly quiet even at the busiest times on the boardwalk. The room was fine - comfy, well equipped. It has what I'd want if I were here for a beach week. There are ample TV, party and breakfast rooms. The staff - especially Jackie - were very helpful and accommodating. All this for $69 for a double? We were visiting Cape May and found this a far better alternative for lodging. Close, less expensive and a pretty fun place... even in October.

Room Tip: I'd go for the 3rd or 4th floor, overlooking the pool - maybe 307-312

My wife & I saw the special at travelZoo and decided to try it. The room was clean & nice; done in a fifties style, including melmac dishes and a lava lamp! We will definitely look into it for next summer. It's a 1/2 block from the boardwalk , a few blocks north of Wildwood Crest. Also the pool and hot tub were great.

Stayed there this past weekend for the 2nd year in a row to go to Moreys Fears. The staff is excellent and very accommodating. There are several room choices to suit everyone's needs, and the doo wop theme is a wonderful touch. There is a heated pool and hot tub which was wonderful, there are several restruants and stores within walking distance, and the boardwalk is one block away! They also have bikes you can take out for a spin which Is awesome. This was my younger sisters 1st time staying at a hotel and she can't WAIT to come back in the summer to stay here again!
