“A very nice surprise!”
Reviewed September 4, 2009

After a disappointing stay last year at the Montego Bay, we decided to try another hotel. and the Starlux was highly reviewed and had a room type that we were looking for (we needed a room with 2 bedrooms). I had a concern that the pools they had were outdoor (which was the only reason to even think about going back to Montego Bay), but the heated jacuzzi was quite big and the large pool was kept at a reasonable temperature. We started every day with a couple of hours in the jacuzzi and pool.

Although we had a few bumps at the beginning of the stay (refrigerator not cooling, TV remote not working), the staff was extremely responsive and fixed our issues to our satisfaction. In addition, maybe due to our early troubles, the manager offered us a deal they were running for last minute customers, which was 2 free week unlimited passes, along with one pass at their already reduced rate ($85), which if we bought retail would have been $600. This really made for a stress-free stay, not having to ration roller coaster rides and the water park for our son.

The room was a reasonable size and was well laid out. The beds were very comfortable (I am very picky about beds, and usually do not sleep well anywere else but home, but no such problems here), and each room having the ability to control the temperature was a great thing to have. They could perhaps use a bathroom sink with more room to sit your toiletries and an additional towel bar, but overall the room functioned nicely. I did not feel uncomfortable sitting on the sofabed or laying on the floor to watch TV, as the room was cleaned very well. Towels, soap and shampoo were refreshed daily. They also supplied a small bottle of dish detergent for those who decided to eat in the room in order to clean the dishes. The balcony was nicely sized and had a good view, but could have used a table to sit drinks. The 1 block walk to the boardwalk, and the accessible tram cars were useful, as it was very warm the week we stayed.

Overall, it was a very pleasant stay. My wife has said to not look for another hotel as we were going back to the Starlux!

In terms of affordability and quality service and just a nice overall and relaxing place to enjoy your vacation.The Starlux is the most unrated place in Wildwood NJ.

The rooms were very clean and kept clean daily as well as all of the facilities on the property...The nostalgic music around the crystal clear pool was so relaxing. The continental breakfast was a hit, for we could enjoy a lite breakfast and watch the kids swim.

The staff was very friendly and very helpfull with our stay. In fact they made our dinner reservations gave us a coupon to use. And then to top it off the restaurant acknowleged us as guest of the starlux and gave us first class service and another discount on our dining bill.

The discounts we received on the passes to morey's pier were a huge savings.

The location is perfect to the beach and boardwalk and other things to do that are in walking distance.

Trust me when I say this, we have stayed at other places in wildwood and NOTHING comes even close to the value and enjoyment.

We loved it..

We will be back in the summer of 2010!!

I have to put this out there that the STARLUX HOTEL, is one of the greatest treasures in Wildwood. Everything from the Staff to the room was perfect. The staff was friendly, helpful and extremely prompt. The room was AMAZING, if your into retro feels, or Doo Wop styles, this is definitely the place for you. The pool was great, not to cold, just right. Wonderful jacuzzi to help relax those tired muscles from beating the boards and treking the sandy beaches. I recommend this to people of all ages. This hotel has something to offer everyone, it even has a Arcade and Rec area.

So i say thank you to the starlux for the stay that we had there, it was memorable and truly one of out best times at the shore! We'll see them again next year :O)

We "loved" our stay at the StarLux and have raved about it to our friends and family. We would definitely stay there again next year. Everyone at the front desk was so nice and helpful that it definitely made an impression on us.

The discount tickets they offer for Morey's Pier are wonderful (more than 1/2 price off) and with four children we saved a lot of money. It is only one block from the Boardwalk and the beach. The continental breakfast was perfect and even included boiled eggs.

We stayed on the 4th floor in a two-bedroom suite (efficiency) and it was very nice and clean. Had everything we needed...utencils, cups, glasses, plates, fridge, microwave etc. Just perfect.

We have shopped on site in the WIldwooods and found out this hotel, Manager kindly engaged conversation and found a way to satisfy my budget. Turned out absolutely great. My sons both liked the clean pool and the hotel look and feel of the 60s, as well as me. With continental bfeakfast included in price, and freezer + microwave in room, it was just perfect for quick snacks , since fastfood is sometime espensive on the boardwalk restaurants, and not very healthy food either .... ...
We will go back on our next trip to the Wilwoods .....
