Reviewing my trip from August 2012. Cara Mara is located in Wildwood Crest, directly across from Centennial Park. Overall it was average…not bad and not the best. Maid service is not what it used to be when I was younger. I could remember maids coming into your room and vacuuming, washing the sink & bathtub…basically cleaning the entire room. Now-a-days they typically only take out the trash, make up the bed and provide new towels. The person working the front desk was nice, friendly and helped us check-in early. Parking was always available. There’s a play area for kids on the first floor with a few older toys and a shuffle board court. There are two grills also available for guests to use. The pool and the surrounding pool-area was clean and well kept. Location is nice because there is no hotel between the Cara Mara and the beach/ocean. If you stay during the fireworks show or a concert at the park you have a front row seat. The Port Royal hotel, which has a nice restaurant and take-out window, is in walking distance and makes a great place to grab take-out breakfast and lunch. That’s about it. I would come back and stay even though it’s not my first choice.
