At the risk of sounding like a snob, I must confess here that I've neither had the interest nor a reason to ever visit Wildwood NJ. When my daughter was to attend a sporting event there we, along with other parents booked rooms at the Lotus Inn at the coach's recommendation. I wasn't expecting much and I was pleasantly surprised. The place is comfortable and as clean as a whistle. The staff was friendly, helpful, and polite. The beach is a block away and the place is located in a quiet area of town. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rental at a reasonable price. They even maintain a small library for guest use. The kitchenette in our suite was well supplied and maintained as were the bathrooms. There was some construction going on when I was there so there wasn't any continental breakfast available. I was kind of surprised by the insistence on the management's part that I sign a form regarding the no smoking policy. This is also the only place I've ever stayed at that had a recycling policy. However, it is important to note that the place is clearly run by people who like their business and want to take good care of it. Therefore if it seems wierd that there are some rules here, remember that an awful slob probably made it necessary to spell out the concept of decent behavior. If I ever come back to Wildwood I would stay here again.
