We loved our stay at the Tropicana Motel. It was clean and comfortable, only a block and a half from Adventure Pier, and the management was friendly and accommodating. They let us check in early and leave our car after we checked out for the day, because they had the space. Thanks Tropicana!

I've been staying here for 3 years now for bike week with friends. The location is great. We generally hang out on the sun deck and watch the bikes cruising by while we throw back a few cold ones. The rooms are always clean and the fridge is a good size to keep our drinks cold. If you are looking for the Sheraton or Hyatt, then you better look somewhere else. This is a little place at the beach and if you're used to coming to the shore then you know what I mean by that. Steve the manager is always helpful with our reservations and telling us whats happening in town once we check in.
If you are looking for a clean room in the heart of all the action at a great price then, you are in the right place.

Last June about 60 of my friends and I choose the Tropicana as our spot to come down after our prom weekend. We primarily choose the Tropicana because of its location to the beach and boardwalk. We got dropped off by the party bus about 2 am and did not have too many cars to get around, so location was very important. It was easy to make the reservations and we had email receipts of everything to show my friends the cost. A couple of rooms had to pay for minor damage out of their security deposits but nobody cared. The rest of our school stayed somewhere else and had problems getting their deposit back. This year we are working with Steve from the Trop the book the whole place after prom. Hes a great help in planning our large group. Can't wait to get back to Wildwood. Prom 2013!!!!!!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Tropicana for two nights and it was perfect. When we arrived after our long drive (around 1pm) the room was ready. Steve welcomed us with a friendly smile. Due to it being the fall and not many guests being at the property we got great customer service from housekeeping and the manager. Steve is very friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. The location is by Morey's Piers and the carnival on the boardwalk. We had a great time in Wildwood.

Room Tip: Ask the front desk for Beach Creek Restaurant drink vouchers.

The hotel manager Jeff was great and very helpful. The hotel was only a few steps away from the boardwalk. It's not a 5 star hotel but it's Wildwood we came for the beach and boardwalk not to stay in the room all day. At night people got a little loud but you could not hear them when you were in the room. Jeff was always on call all the time, we got locked out of our room and he was there to help in 2 minutes. The price was the best I found for such a great location.

This motel was horrible the manager Jeff was vey rude and unprofessional. the sheeting on the bed had stains the towels and wash cloths had hair everywhere. The televison and air conditioning contioniously cut on and off there were roaches crawling on the dresser. the motel also fails to tell you about hidden charges such as extra taxes and made up fees.
