Our family has visited Wildwood several times over the past 40 years. This was the first time that we made our reservation at the Adventurer. Even though it was just the two of us, we did want a two-room, oceanview suite as we enjoy the fact that we actually have a separate place to watch television and eat...no longer trying to do all that while sitting on a bed. The suite was quite spacious and it was equipped with two televisions; however, the television in the living room was a small flat screen that was mounted in the corner above the couch. You either had to lie on the couch or sit at the dinette table to watch it. You needed to turn the sound up as it was a little difficult to hear when the air conditioning would come on. Therefore, it became the battle of the televisions...one in the living area and the other in the bedroom. Even though there is a partition dividing the rooms, there is an opening above the partition that still allows sounds to go between the rooms.
The private balcony faced the south end of the boardwalk. There were no issues as far as noise. Two chairs are provided on the balcony; however, the one chair needed to be moved away from the in-wall a/c unit as a lot of heat was generated and it was not comfortable to sit in front of the unit.
This is an ocean-front Inn; however, due to Mother Nature, the beach is getting bigger every year while the ocean water goes farther out. No longer is the water under the piers. We are fairly brisk walkers, and it took nine (9) minutes to walk from the Inn to the ocean. Yes, there is nothing you can do about that but find nature truly amazing!
We, too, used the steps more than the elevator. Patience is a must if you wish to wait for the elevator.
The hallways in the Adventurer seem dim. Perhaps it is the paint color and the dark carpet. They are, however, clean.
The bathroom was small, but all older establishments in this doo-wop era town weren't built with the 21st century in mind. The larger-tile drop ceiling in the bathroom could be updated.
The housekeeping staff kept our suite nicely prepared. Clean towels were always provided, even if we had our used towels folded and placed on the towel rack.
The furniture within the suite was okay. A couch and a chair were provided in the living room, while a small dinette table with chairs in the dining area. We did have to relocate the chair as it sat directly in front of the a/c unit. It got quite chilly! Yes, we could have turned off the a/c, but the bedroom area would get warm if the air was not running almost the entire time. The ceiling fan in the bedroom did keep the air circulating nicely.
Parking was never a problem. There is parking also available under the Adventurer.
We only stayed here for three days, so we were not able to take advantage of the pool or the fitness facility. There is a restaurant on site; however, we did not eat there.
Naturally, we will be back to Wildwood/Wildwood Crest. For those who are budget conscious, it may be a better deal for you to check out hotel suites that are across the road since oceanfront properties are still not what you might think as 'oceanfront' since the water is moving away.
