“Nice stay...”
Reviewed June 24, 2006

My mother, two boys (6 and 9), and myself spent one night at the Bolero. I took the advice of an earlier reviewer and stayed on the hotel side (GOOD ADVICE). We had a 2 rm family suite and it was clean and adequate. I chose the Bolero because we anticipated rain the days we were there and we wanted an indoor pool. We really enjoyed the pool area, enclosed in glass with wonderful views of the surrounding city and ocean. The boardwalk is only a short block away. We didn't eat at the restaurant in the hotel, but we did peek in and its was large and nicely decorated with a few bistro style tables outside along the street. Overall, compared to other area lodgings, the Bolero is much better than most and the location is terrific for beachgoers and those wanting to enjoy the boardwalk.

We just returned from 2 nights in the Bolero "resort" in Wildwood. If you are planning to stay here make sure you are in the HOTEL and not the MOTEL, or you will be very sorry. We had a very large group (2 soccer teams down for a tournament) and the rooms were beyond disgusting. The stench, the dirtiness, icky is a good word. We were quite unpleasantly surprised. We paid about 100 per night but these are 35 dollar welfare motel rooms at best. The mattresses in our room (second floor efficiency) were shot. We opened the sofa bed to find old dirty sheets, blankets and a pillow (nice housekeeping!), matches, popcorn and other unidentifiable "stuff". One son slept in the small mushy bed with me and the other son was forced to sleep on the floor atop some sheets and blankets. Even that was better than that sofa bed. Every inch of this room was dirty, stained, old and scary. Holes in the wall, mold and mildew, loose railings and not a working smoke detector to be found. Another entire team staying checked out and moved across the street to the Ocean Terrace. The web photos are very misleading.
GOOD POINTS- the indoor pool and fitness area were very nice with tables and a tiki bar. The restaurant has excellent dinner selections, and the bar area is also nice. If youre looking to enjoy the boardwalk you cant beat the location, near everything. Otherwise.........unless you are celebrating prom night or graduation from high school........beware!

My teenage daughter, her bestfriend and myself have just returned from 4 days at The Bolero Resort. We entered The Bolero Resort and checked in at the Concierge. It was very lovely because it had the necessary newspapers, brochures and coupons for so many things to do, eat and visit in the Wildwoods. It also includes an Internet site to log on to and check your e-mail and two ice cream/snack machines. The concierge was very helpful and attended to our questions quickly and thoroughly. We received our keys and went to our suite. The suite was bright and cheerful. It had a separate bedroom and a nice living area. The bedroom had a TV, telephone, a night stand, a closet and a dresser. The living area has a pull out couch, TV, microwave, small refrigerator and a bar sink. The bathroom was clean and well stocked with towels and accessories. During our time there, the maid kept the suite spotless and stocked with new towels every day. The Bolero has a full bar and restaurant. The food was good and so was the service. They do have entertainment on the weekends, but I was there during the week so I cannot comment on that.
There was a nice pool outside with two jacuzzis. Around the pool there were lounge chairs and a propane grill. This area was well maintained and clean.
On the seventh floor, there is a full gym including cardio, free weights and a complete workout circuit. Moreover, there is a spa that gives massages and facials as well as a sauna, 2 jacuzzis and an indoor pool. You can see the boardwalk and ocean from the gym. They have a juice bar too. The gym was clean and and smelled cleaned too.
Since it was raining one of the evenings, the indoor pool was important to teenage kids.
The location is ideal. It is across the street from the boardwalk and there is so much to do.

I will be going back next year with my daughters but for a longer period of time. We had a great time in Wildwood and the Bolero was super !!!
