“Pros and Cons”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The big selling point here is location, location, location. Located right on the boardwalk over Sam's Pizza, the views (if your room is facing the right direction) of the ocean and boardwalk are great. The other huge plus, from my perspective, is that even though it was senior week and the crowds of teens on the streets, hanging from the balconies of cheaper, more lenient establishments, and moving in packs on the boardwalk would at times give NOLA a run for the money, the hotel and even the area around it was untouched. I thought it was based on who they would rent to, my husband thought it was that it was more expensive than other places.

We were staying with a large group that rented the suite and we rented a standard room. Everything was clean enough, although the decor as nondescript as possible. As for toiletries, there was only cheap, gritty soap. No shampoo, lotion, etc. The bed was ok but I was told that the mattresses on the sleeper sofas in the suite were horrible with kids opting to sleep on the floor instead of what amounted to metal coils.

The pool on the fourth floor roof offers a good view of the beach and boardwalk as well. It tended to be on the cold side and the hot tub was only marginally hotter. It closed at 6 pm and whenever the manager was not on the premises! Take note and don't count on using the pool. On the plus side, there is a bathroom located right next to the pool and an outdoor shower.

Great location especially with kids. A bit pricy but worth being directly on top of the boardwalk. Super clean inside, I think it was all completely renovated and quite overlooking the any side of the hotel streets or boardwalk. Nearby all attractixons and the bar. Also has a decent pool on the rooftop w a hot tub. Last year we went every weekend for two months straight. Coming back every year. If you ever get hungry the famous pizzaria is downstairs for great pizza.

We loved the original Shore Plaza so we were excited to see it was re-opening! We really enjoyed our stay.They have a wonderful new pool and a hot tub, which is new and we thoruoghly enjoyed it. There are also poolside bathrooms for convenience. Looking forward to going back again this summer. Yes, smokers, they don't allow smoking anymore...it is probably due to the fire. Do you blame them?

We went to this hotel Autg 31 thru Sept 3rd and i was wonderful!!!! The close proximity to everything on the boardwalk, the wonderful rooms and most of all the staff is all family and they treat you like family!!! And as we were leaving they took the time to show my mother, daughter and I the suites. We will be staying with Ro and Bonnie 10 days next year!!! LOVE THIS HOTEL!!!!!!!!!!!

We just came back from our vacation. Our stay at the Shore Plaza was very enjoyable! The location is great! You are just steps away from the boardwalk and beach. So convenient if you have children or even if you don't! It is clean and well managed! Just a few suggestions for the hotel... a microwave in the room would be great because sometimes you like to heat food or drink, a hairdryer (forgot mine from home), a later checkout time (10:30AM is early). Other than those things, a really nice place!

My family and I just came back from a Wildwood Vacation. We loved this hotel. Everything is new - it is very clean - the staff is great - from the front desk to the maids. The location is great - it is rite on the boardwalk in the center of everything. The price was also great - and well worth every penny. The room (we had a double) large - there was more than enough space for all of our clothes. Everything worked perfectly from the WIFI to the TV to the telephone. If your in WIldwood you should def stay here! There are few hotels/motels in WIldwood that are this clean.
