This was our second stay at the Gondolier. This year we were greeted with a new carpet which was a nice surprise. Overall, the Gondolier is an average motel.
*Situated right on the beach (still a walk though.... as with all motels "on the beach".
*very close to the boardwalk but not right in the middle of the all the chaos
*Lisa, one of the housekeepers... fantastic
*excellent sized refridgerator
*no "mold problems" like a lot of people complain of at Wildwood motels
*Advertised as having a "heated pool".... yes, there is a heater but, they don't turn it on (at least not during our stay)... pool was horribly cold!!
*Air conditioning: only one unit in our suite.... loud, smelly and lovely blowing some sort of black ash (yuck) and not adaquate in cooling the ENTIRE suite.
*front desk staff has room for improvement on their social skills
*another one of the housekeepers (don't know her name)... dumped liquids off the top floor balcony right onto my husband on the ground level... containing bleach or some other harsh cleaning solvent.
*Toilet needed a new valve to work properly... wasn't going to be replaced anytime soon apparenty (after contacting the maintenance staff)
*Other items in our living quarters needing help (ex: sliding door seperating living room from bedroom .... off the track, could barely close properly)
*"Stuff" in our rooms garbage on our arrival........again, yuck
Again.......... this is Wildwood .... I have to keep that all in mind in fairly grading a hotel/motel here......... so average... but, many areas in need of improvement.
Rather clean... great location.....and those are two very important factors.
Would return..... but, in search of something superior.
