Had another GREAT time again. The rooms are clean. Fresh soft towels everyday. The service is awesome. (stayed July 5 to the 9th)
My daughter & her family was in the next room to us.
The BBQ was very clean. My grandchildren loved the pool.
Thanks Robin. See you next year. Love Judy

This is our 18th year staying at the Acacia. We have a large family that is now spread out on the east coast, so we rent several rooms and combine vacation with a reunion. They did their best to put us as close together as possible. We just came home from another wonderful stay. Ten days of a little bit of heaven on earth! The rooms are always clean. Service is great! The staff is always very accommodating and genuinely kind. The pool is immaculate. It is right on the beach so you can't beat it. They even have a patio with lounges, picnic type tables and umbrellas. This was a great place to soak up the sun for those in our family who have difficulty getting to the beach due to older age or disability. The showers have railings which were a big help to the older members of our family as well. The grills are always clean and most folks are good about using and sharing. They are always upgrading. This year we noticed all the rooms were painted and had new microwaves. Robin and the staff go out of their way to assure that guests are well cared for, that problems are resolved and that safety is maintained. We are already counting down the days for next year.

Room Tip: Book early as reservations fill quickly. Suggest Ocean view rooms for great view of the beach. We...

Had a great weekend here -- room was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the pool and proximity to the beach. Short drive to Wildwood boardwalk. Great little restaurant for breakfast/lunch right next door. Would definitely stay here again. Made use of the public BBQ and had dinner on patio with a group of friends also staying. Everything was much nicer than I had anticipated given all I've heard about Wildwood motels from friends.

Everyone was helpful and pleasant. Very very clean. Pool was heated and delightful. Beds very comfy. A family run business. They made us feel as if we had been coming here for years when it was our first visit. Gave us a unit next to relatives that were also there-made it very nice for all of us.

Room Tip: We had an ocean front room with private patio. Would do it again.

We stayed 4 nights in a 1 bedroom efficiency room with a family of 5. I must say the room was larger than I expected. The whole hotel is clean and well kept. The owners are nice and even offered some dining tips at check-in! We loved the location right on the beach and only about 3 miles from Morey's pier and the heart of the boardwalk. We love the vie of wildwood crest with all the retro motels. It's a family friendly paradise!

This is the 2nd year my family and I have stayed at the Acacia Beachfront Motel for our vacation. Last year we stayed in the 1 bedroom, 1 bath efficiency style room. This year, we decided to rent the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite (301) for a little extra room, and like last time, we loved our stay. There is a view of the beach from every balcony, and several rooms/suites are ocean front. Our ocean view room gave us the perfect opportunity to sit out on the balcony and drink our coffee every morning.

The Acacia isn't too expensive considering all it has to offer. It gives you just enough of what you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation. It isn't the most modern or up-to-date motel/hotel on the Crest, but it is well kept, clean, quiet and family friendly. You enter through the main door off the balcony, and there is a table and chairs to the right in front of a large window. To the left, is a coat rack and shelf, TV cabinet and drawers. A few more steps in and the sofa is located on the right hand wall just past the eating area. The master bedroom entrance is opposite the sofa and features a large sliding glass door to the balcony as well as a private full size bathroom and separate A/C thermostat. The kitchenette is located on the left just past the master bedroom door and opposite from the 2nd full bathroom. The 2nd bedroom is located straight ahead from the entrance, just past the kitchenette. This bedroom is slightly smaller with a small window that faces the motel opposite the Acacia, but it does have another sink and counter and full size make up mirror.

The efficiency sized kitchenette with 2 burners, coffee pot, microwave and full size fridge was the main reason I chose this motel in the first place. Plates, bowls, cups, mugs, pots, pans, cooking utensils, silverware, dish rack, can opener, etc. were already there. A sufficiently-sized table and 6 chairs easily accommodated our group for meals. The kitchenette and bbq grills helped us save money. We did eat out at Adams (on the boardwalk) and Urie's (just off Rio Grande- before you cross the bridge back to mainland) and ordered Sal's pizza. All were excellent!

The large bedrooms each had 1 closet, shelves, dressers and 2 double beds- not the best mattresses, but not the worst either. 1 bedroom and the living room have cable TVs with lots of channels. The hotel offers free WIFI. There also was a pull out sofa in the living room, so there was plenty of space for me, my husband, 2 little girls, my sister and brother in law. Extra pillows, blankets and sheets were provided without having to ask. However, Nancy and Diane kept our rooms fresh and well stocked with clean towels, toiletries, etc. Thanks!!!!

The parking garage under the motel and elevator made going to and from easy. The beach access is only steps away from the heated pool- very convenient. My little ones enjoyed the baby area of the pool that was shaded after about 2pm. Some people didn't like the shade on that side of the pool, but I did b/c it gave the baby a break from the sun for the rest of the afternoon.

2 spacious sun decks are located on the 2nd floor and have gas grills, lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. A few vending machines and ice chest are located right outside the main office. An outside shower and bathroom at the pool are a nice feature.

Room Tip: Rooms 201, 301, 401 and those with numbers closest to them are near the elevator, otherwise you have...

I stayed here for only a couple of nights but I loved it! Clean, affordable, good location, and fast wifi. The only thing I didn't like was that there was no tissues, but overall it was great, it's also very close to the beach and even the boardwalk.
