Ok, here's the deal. It's a beach dive. We stayed just one night for an event that was going on in Wildwood. It's clean, the staff is friendly, it's on the beach. What more could I ask for the price? If I were rating it on location and beach dive criteria I'd give it a 5. But, I'm rating it on real criteria. The rooms are pretty small (we had an A unit) and they've done basic cosmetic upgrades. It is very convenient to have the little kitchenette. It is directly on the beach. The people who mentioned parking were not kidding. The parking lot is ridiculous. I worked magic even getting my car in there (to be fair, I drive a Charger, not the world's smallest car), but the spaces are so narrow that even if every car in the lot was tiny they'd still be too close together. Ultimately I was so worried about my car getting dinged I parked it along the street 2 blocks away (it was free to park there, btw...but I don't know how plentiful that parking might be in high season). We took the trolley down to the boardwalk. It's $3 per person one way which I think is pricey but given that some lots were charging $40 (yes, $40) for parking for our event down there it was certainly a bargain. I'm not sure that you'd want to take advantage of the trolley everyday if you had a family or you'd go broke. The beds are not comfortable. The sheets are scratchy and I think there are about 4 springs total in the mattress and all of them are worn out. I made it through our one night stay but I'm not sure if I could handle that for too many nights. All in all, it was a perfectly acceptable place if you are looking for a good bargain with a great location. I went there with beach dive expectations and was perfectly happy with what we got.
