I paid for 1 room 1 night stay and it was only $57. Room was smaller than normal but what can you expect for that price? Came with everything you need, AC, TV, Microwave, Towels etc. It's conveniently 2 minutes away from the boardwalk and 1 minute away from a decent diner

Being that it was family owned, it made my decision easy to make and I am glad I did. The owners, Julie and her parents were absolutely great. The room was clean, confortable with everything you needed was there. We arrived very late (1am) due to an accident on the way and the owner posed no problem and waited up for us. It felt like Mom & Dad were waiting for us to arrive and that you don't find often, without an extra fee at least. I would stay here again and again and I am again September 10-13 and looking forward to it. Look no further, Clean, Comfortable & Close (2 blks) to boardwalk/convention center. Around the corner you can stop in the morning and have a $2.22 breakfast (2 eggs, 2 pancakes & 2 strips of bacon), just ask the Fountain where, they told us.

Traveling with 2 adults, an 9 month old and a 2 year old on our first trip to Wildwood we were looking for something relatively cheap (for Wildwood) so we could check out the area to see if we'd like to come again. We got a single night (Saturday; which is apparently rare in Wildwood) and a great rate ($115) by simply calling up the motel a few days before. We made our decision to stay here after looking at other reviews on tripdvisor. We arrived early (1pm) for a 2pm check in. Prior to arriving, we called to see if we could check in early and the gentleman we spoke to informed us it was possible, however he couldn't confirm until we arrived. The location is great, only a 1 block walk to the boardwalk and that entry point is just near one of the big Piers. Check in was smooth. WiFi is available for an additional $9.99 a day. Coffee and cookies are provided until 10am. Discounts are available with two nearby cafe's. First impressions of the room (#19) were good. It smelled very clean and looked it as well. Everything was tidy and neat. We had a class C room with 2 double beds. There was a microwave, 2 plates and a cup available also in addition to a fridge. Rooms have an AC unit. There are double locks on the doors and outside of the room there are 2 chairs for lounging around. The hotel is an L shape so all rooms overlook the hotel pool and parking area. In the bathrooms, multiple hand, face and small body towels were provided in addition to a small bottle of shampoo, conditioner as well as an anti-slip mat for the full size tub. After showering all 4 of us, we didn't run out of hot water. There was also a long closet rod for draping over wet towels or clothes using hangers with a shelf above that to tuck away anything you need. There was also a tiny coffee table in the bathroom that we took outside to put our coffees on while we sat out there. The pool is open until 11pm. The pool itself and surrounding area is very clean and well kept. The kids had a great time and based on the cleanliness alone, we'd definitely stay here again.

The fountain motel is a great little getaway, right off the beach and boardwalk...The staff is super friendly and accomodating, and if your looking for the best value for your money, this is your best bet...The pool is clean and inviting, and if you want to have a cookout, there's a nice grill area with picnic tables...so if you ever come to Wildwood, make sure you check out the Fountain Motel, and ask for Julie!!

Well, I don't understand all the good reviews. Maybe people don't mind the smelly humid rooms that are very old and torn downed.... or maybe ppl don't mind to pay 100+ dollars a night for a cheap motel.... but I do care! This is an old and dirty motel...
The maids do their job right and the staff is friendly, but the rooms are so old it's impossible for the maids to renew them everyday. Also, the breakfast is a joke... they leave a big coffe maker outside the lobby and there are chinese buffet cookies (ewwww...) The location is very good if you wanna go to Wildwood (it was our first and last time at wildwood...a boardwalk with hundreds of gimmick shops) but the place is overrated (the motel as well as the town). Sorry for this bad review... but I don't think me and my wife are particulary picky...

My husband, my 6 month old son and myself stayed here for a long weekend in July. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was small but thats all we needed. The room was spotless, the bathroom looked like they had recetly remodeled it. The pool was small but great. Close to the beach and boardwalk and it was reasonably priced for mid July. Will deffinetly go back next year.
