We stayed here in mid June for a 2 night stay; just after the kids got out of school.
the location is fine for us-one block from the convention center and probably 3/4 mile from the first of Morey's Piers. the location is one block from the iconic "Wildwoods" sign. It is what I'd call the lower end of the boardwalk, so can be quite a long walk depending on where you need to go.
The service is awesome-from the accommodations I needed making a reservation, to all the staff we met along the way. This was our first visit to Wildwood, so we had questions about the town and attractions, and a couple people at the desk were extremely helpful. Note that they have a deal with the Piers so we obtained an all day pass for all the Morey's Piers (and waterparks) for $30 per person. Quite a deal we thought.

The comments about breakfast are true--very minimal. we had plain bagels, danishes and coffee. No cereal, oatmeal, nothing hot. Treat yourself to a breakfast at nearby Marvis diner if you're there more than a couple days.
The only downer we had was the street noises. This is an open hotel, on a busy street, so it got a bit loud. The a/c on low provided enough "white noise" that sleeping was possible after that. The room itself is fine. Small, but well equipped and very comfortable.
We saw the two Airstreams, but couldn't get into one of those. They are actually across the street in the hotel's auxiliary parking lot. Kind of cool, but perhaps next time.

Overall, I'd return to the Star Lux. The service, warm pool and location were fine for us and made it a pleasant weekend.

While very familiar with The StarLux, I never had an opportunity to give it a try until I needed a hotel room in Wildwood in the middle of winter. In January, The StarLux is one of the only options on the island if you need a place to stay. While I didn't get to enjoy the place in the heart of the summer season as it should be enjoyed, I did get to experience it after admiring it while eating Sea Shell ice cream year after year.

The motel is an older building that was severely refurbished years ago. That meant a standard motel room inside a building that doesn't look quite like anything else in the area- the way it should be in Wildwood. The room was pretty spacious- probably because there was only one queen bed inside of it- while the bathroom towards the back was fairly small. For one night and one person, it was fine. A larger family staying for a longer period of time would need one of the motel's larger rooms. The room's furnishings were pretty basic aside from the lava lamp and surfvoard-shaped decorative panels on the walls but everything was clean and well-maintained.

One of The SlarLux's best attributes is its location. There is a short walk to the heart of the boardwalk but you're still only a block from the beach (not very useful in the middle of winter but great during the summer months) and a short walk from countless restaurants. The motel features limited on-site parking and a larger parking lot across the street, which is where most people will end up finding space for their cars.

Wildwood motels seems to fall into two categories- those you can take and those you should leave. The StarLUx definitely falls into the former, which is a good thing.

The StarLux is a retro Doo Wop hotel located on Rio Grande Ave. in Wildwood NJ. I found that this particular hotel is very clean, and the service is well mannered. Overall, cleanliness was at a supreme-compared to bordering hotels. Besides the hotel rooms not being oceanfront, it is right across the street (Ocean Ave.) from the boardwalk. It is located by the convention center which makes it a good choice for business travelers. There is a long walk to the beach in this section of Wildwood...around a quarter mile, but if you can walk, it shouldn't be a major issue. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet area of town without all of the commotion of the North Wildwood boardwalk. As stated, a little walk to the beach, and to any boardwalk shops, but it is not that bad of a problem. The price is right for a good quality Doo Wop hotel!

aside from the double storms, my mate and some pals went here for my bday!!! friday to sunday... it was great! we've been wanting to come since last year, but ran out of in-season time. luckily, we made it in october and it was a wonderful bday gift. one of the best ever. the staff was helpful and kind, and the motel was clean and VERY cool. our friends loved it, too... and we'd totally go back! between the neato decor and the structure itself – and it's place in the crest.. it just made for one of the nicest times in WW. sure the weather was crap, but thats not what we went for. and, thanks to our friend who is a seasoned WW devotee, ... on our way off the island we stopped at the Pan American and got a tour of 2 rooms that blew us away. we'll be going BACK to the StarLux, and booking a fun summer trip for the Pan American as soooooooooon as we can! Cheers to the Morey family for maintaining and providing such great places!!!
