“Great Motel! 5 star rating!”
Reviewed July 14, 2011

We stayed at the Gondolier motel a few weeks ago and we absolutely loved it! No complaints at all. The rooms were VERY clean, as well as the rest of the motel and pool area. The maintenance man was always working and cleaning. And the room did not smell at all. We've stayed at many different motels over the years at Wildwood, and all of them had a strange odor that was almost unbearable. These rooms were absolutely spotless! The maids did a wonderful job of cleaning up on a daily basis. And the staff were very friendly and accomodating. We had one issue with our door, and maintenance came immediately to fix it. It is close to the boardwalk, withing walking distance, and directly on the beach. They even had free food, beer, wine, and entertainment our first night there! We will definitely be returning to the Gondolier next year. I think we've finally found "our hotel"!!!!!

I've been frequenting wildwood since I was a kid now, and I needed a place to stay overnight. I booked at the Gondolier, and it was a clean, no frills motel room. Perfect for what I needed. Staff was very nice, location is great, I'd definitely come here again. Price was a bit high for what it is, but all of wildwood is a bit overpriced.

Our room was very clean and very confortable. Air conditionner and refrigerator noisy but still with a few... coffee..the noise was gone. We where on the third floor which was perfect for us because on the ground floor and first floor it was some sort of a daily ''party going on''. But, by the way , this is absolutely normal for young kids and older ones afterall it's holidays...We had ocean and pool view, just great. Very little walking distance from the beach so we could have lunch in the room, which is also great. Refrigerator, oven, micro wave all available. ACME five minutes away. Beginning of boardwalk aprx 500 feet from Motel. Without any doubt, if we return to Wildwood next year we will try to go to the Gondolier Motel. Owners should refresh their web site, because it's well nicer than than what appears on it.

We spent 4 nights recently at the Gondolier!! The BEST location you could even imagine. Nice area, steps from the beach, and 2 blocks (or so) from the beginning of the boardwalk. The atmosphere is very family oriented, but my husband and I felt it would also be a great place to go back as a couple or better with a few couples. The owners and staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. The pool was a good size and very clean! They spontaneously threw a party for the entire hotel one evening with complementary food and drinks and an extremely enjoyable piano player/singer. Even my 15 and 19 year old had a great time at this event!! Keep in mind though that the rooms are no frills. It is a bit "dated". The double beds we slept in were not the most comfortable, but we slept fine anyway. However it was quite clean, which you can't beat. Room issues are very minimal and all the positives beat that out!! I am already working on my husband to go back here next summer!!! Loved it!!!!

This was one of the worst vacation stays we ever had. We rented what was advertised as a two room suite for 239/night when we arrived the room was nothing we expected it was very small the couch had stains all over it the refrigerator was rusty. The worst was when you turned on the AC a horrible smell came out of it. I'm pregnant and just being in the room for five minutes with the smell made me sick. We requested another room and we got a regular hotel room down a hallway where at the end what I think was the laundry room was located. There were garbage cans stored up and down the hallway in front of our room, so we got a lesser room and they still charged us the suite rate. I wouldn't recommend anyone ever stay at this hote.

We just came back from this place. We have stayed at Aquabeach, Adventurer Inn, WatersEdge and I have to say this place is the best out of the others. I would go back.

The new owners did a great job redecorating and updating the property. The rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable and enjoyable! We were with a party of eight and had a wonderful time. We even had live entertainment poolside with free Pizza! AND we already booked our rooms for next year!!!
