“Spectacular Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

The best vacation I ever had. My third trip there. Stayed in many hotels in Wildwood, this one was by far the best. The owners of the hotel made us feel like family. Rooms are spotless, the pool was nice and clean.

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor. You will have a beautiful ocean view.

The location of this hotel is great! Very close to the board walk and beach. We only stayed for one night, since we came into WW one day before we could check into our rental. The room was small and dated,...tiles and flooring, bathroom, which made it seem unkept, but I have to say it was fairly clean. Our room had a musty smell,( i think coming from the air conditioner) I am sure we could have switched rooms, but knew it was for only the night and didn't want to go through the hassle. So we shut the air off and opened the windows. Pool was great and owner was very nice. From the rave reviews I was expecing something competely different, but overall it's good for a night or two.

I have stayed at many hotels in Wildwood over the past 25 years. This hotel is by far the best!!! Extremely clean, new LCD TV's, excellent service. The view of the ocean is spectacular. The room rates are very reasonable. Never a worry about late night noise, management is on top of all their guests. I would highly recommend this hotel over all others in the Wildwood area.

Room Tip: When you call for a reservation, they will always offer you the best room available!

Whenever we go to Wildwood we always stay at the Starfire Motel. It's always very clean and the owners are on site and you can see they take pride in having a well maintained and clean property. It is on the border of Wildwood Crest and right across the street from the boardwalk. Also across the street is a bike rental shop also with very nice and friendly owners. I will always come back here and always recommend the Starfire to my friends and family members.
There is a very good Chinese Resturant, Dragon House, on Pacific Avenue which is in walking distance if you like to walk, Star Diner in North Wildwood is worth the short drive for breakfast and the Lighthouse Pointe Resturant is very good, (though it's a little difficult to find).

Room Tip: If you want a view of the ocean ask for a 2nd floor room, but it does cost more.

This is the second time we've been to Wildwood and the reason we stayed here (I still love the Astronaut!) is because of the location. It is across the street from the Boardwalk and the beach, yet the area is actually quiet. My kid loves to go to Morey's for the rides but we don't want to drive everyday to get to the Boardwalk. The view is also nice-you can see the Convention center and wildwoods sign, beach and boardwalk, from the balcony. The owner also stays there and makes sure everything is ok. There is coffee served all day near the office. The price is also reasonable for the time we booked it. One thing though that is a little weird is the paper bath mat(?). Definitely recommending it to everyone who wants to be near the boardwalk.

They request for you to send a check to make a reservation, no credit card. Once you sent it, NO REFUND or Credit for future use! Due to the Hurricane, whale watching trip got cancelled and so we needed to change the reservation 3 days before our arrival date. Disappointed they didn't even try to give us any credit for future use. I just wasted the whole $180 I paid.
