My family and I went to Wildwood in 2007. We chose this motel from Internet. Worst place ever!! When we arrived (after a 11 hours long travel), my mom just break down and cry after seeing this place. There was yellow-odorant carpet everywhere, the walls was all dirt and black, the beds seems so hard, the toilet seems to be used for years - or decades!, the water was rusty or dark and our front door didn't close correctly. Plus, in the web site, it tells us that our room was 3 beds but it was 2 and a bed couch. The staff seems to be angry and mad all the time, there's no service at the front desk past 5 p.m. I beg you to NOT go at this motel. Bad choice for good vacancy.

the place was run down. the staff was two old ladys for were never in the office. on a monday night the office was closed and locked up at 5pm. so we need to talk to some one you cant because they were gone. no one ever answered any phones. i asked for a non something room i got smokeing. nothing in the room was not that clean. oh i booked the hotel on line and when i called to check on the resv. they didnt have them. they never pulled them off the computer. this should have been my first mistake about this place.

We came with our family and were disappointed with the room size
They said this efficiency was good for 6 people and we felt like sardines in a can
No room for anything
The pool deck was nice but the pool sucks it goes from 2 feet to 9 feet downhill there is nowhere to stand straight.
And the place itself looks way better on the pics online than it actually is
Not worth the money
Will not be back here

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. Rooms were a little outdated but clean and the housekeeping staff were exceptional( we had 2 sisters to take care of our room and they could not have been sweeter). Upon our return home, we realized we had left my husbands heart medications behind. They were wonderful and mailed to me. We received in 1 day. They even took the time to send a package of fudge for our enjoyment even though it was our error. The location to the boardwalk is a bonus. Entire staff was polite and courtesy every time we walked through the lobby. Pool area was fantastic, clean and plenty of room for everyones enjoyment.

finally i have found an affordable hotel at the ebach that works for me and my family .
We are a family of four with a 14 year old son ..the great feature of the room we had was that ids rwally two rooms a living room with a sleeper sofa kitchenette etc
and a seperate room with two double beds.. perfect for any family who's kids are tooo old to share beds ...and my son is ..apparently anyway
ok so the hotel is about two blocks off the boardwalk ...in the center of everything ..hell you walk past laura's fudge on the way to the boards and beach yummmy
the people were great the room was wonderful two flat screen vizio tv's and dvd players a full size fridge microwave and stove top .....th ebathroom was a lil in need of help but clean and usuable ...we will return and reply to any request for more info ..at last i recomend a family hotel at the beach ..yessssss

Room Tip: 3rd floor best rooms 1 floor up from pool and high enough to be pretty quiet

Our stay was decent. We asked for a room change and was accommodated with no problems. It appears some but not all of the rooms have been updated. Location was great, hotel was clean and quiet. We had our room moved from the 5th floor to the 1st floor. I'm so glad we did as I found the elevator to be very slow. The pool area was great, we enjoyed the pool and grilled two nights on the wonderful grills available to guests. The staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating. The complimentary coffee every morning was definitely a plus. I would definitely stay at the Diplomat again but would like to see more of the rooms updated and better TV's installed. Other than that, no real complaints. It was convenient to beach and boardwalk.

Room Tip: As with most 2 room suites the AC is in one room. Bring a small fan to put in the doorway to help pu...

We were on room 204, the furniture is very old, the stove and bathroom handles are very rusty, besides you can see parts up at the cealing of paint coming off, the whole room smells like mold. Do not recommend this room, at least I am not sure if there are others that are udated.
