I don't get the hype with this place. I wasn't overly impressed with this motel. I've stayed at other Motels in the crest and am aware that this is not a 5 star establishment, but also wasn't as impressed as most of the other reviewers. The rooms were clean and when we walked in all you could smell was bleach, which to me is a good thing. I did notice mold/mildew in the ceiling in the bathroom and in the kitchen area, but nothing that was over whelming. It had the standard small kitchen with a fridge which was a plus. The beds were horrible - although to be fare - I don't think I've found a comfortable bed in Wildwood Crest. I was there with my younger kids but was not letting them run the place like most other families. If you enjoy running around kids non-stop then this is the place for you. It didn't help we were on the lower level. I also didn't appreciate the bottles of beer being consumed in the pool or right next to it - to me is a big turn off. Really - Glass in a pool, with the owners saying nothing! The motel is in a U shape with no view of the ocean unless you are on the end row of the second level. I know most of the time I am not ocean front - but I can see the beach and hotel - kinda felt closterphobic by the design. If you like to feel you are at the beach then I don't feel this is the place. While everyone says how nice the owners were - I didn't really have the opprotunity to experience this, as every time we went to the office there was a note that they weren't there. This even happened on check out which I waited 20 mintues and no show. I call every number I can find just to talk with one of the owners who asked "do we have any other charges for phone?" - if not, to leave the keys on the counter. So now I have to leave the key on the counter - what a joke. While the place is clean and close to the beach, I will not be returning.
