“Very bad”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

A very unclean place. In need of a complete re do. Terrible odor in the rooms and uncomfortable beds. The sofa in the room was very dirty!
The ceiling leaked and the A/C did not work well. The management staff was very nice, but not nice enough to stay in such a horrid place!

In response to this review, it just is not consistent with what dozens of other guests have said. This guest never compained about anything while here and left a day early due to an emergency at home. After this review, I called and spoke with the reviewers husband and asked him if the room was dirty. His exact words were" Not Really". He mentioned that they were unhappy with trash cans in the hall outside their room. As for the air conditioning, ceiling leak, and odor, I have no clue what they are talking about. I spoke to the customer presently staying in that unit and they have not experienced any problems with AC, leak, or odor. There are some people who are just not happy with anything.

We have been coming to The Wildwoods for 20 + years. We (kids included) liked this place better than any other place we stayed. Beside the ocean view from your room, the places is clean, the rooms are larger. We will definitely be back here !!

One of our favorite hotels of all time. Terrific location -- right on the beach and in a quite, relaxing part of town but still only 3 minutes by car from the excitement of Wildwood boardwalk and only a 15 minute scenic drive to Cape May. Hotel is super clean plus recent facility upgrades from last year (new carpeting and paint) give the rooms an extra new and clean feeling. Efficiency style room - - with mini-kitchen, table, and pull-out sofa - - are perfect for a traveling family. On-site luncheonette is handy when you're too lazy to cook or looking for something to supplement your in-room breakfast or lunch.

Although I have never been a guest at the Acacia, having lived in Wildwood Crest during the summer since 1977, I wanted to let people know that the owners and workers there are kind and caring people. In July of 2013, I dropped my drivers license near the Acacia, probably when walking to or from the beach. I didn't even realize I didn't have it until a day or two later. I had to drive home to Hamilton Square without a license, worrying that it was permanently lost, and also worrying about getting a ticket on my way home. When I arrived, there was an envelope addressed to me, and lo and behold, there was my license, proving what I always say - the good you do for others comes back to you. The people at the Acacia could have put my license on the desk waiting for me to inquire, or tossed it into the trash. But instead they took the time to mail it to me, someone who has never even stayed at their hotel. If I am asked about a good place to stay on vacation by friends or acquaintances, I will definitely tell this story and suggest that they give it a try.

My family and I have been staying here each summer close to 20 yrs now and it keeps getting better and better. My brother visits from Portland Oregon with his kid's and we all love going to Wildwood. The rooms are bright and cheerful and all the staff are very nice and accommdating.
Like the name say's it's right on the beach and each room has a great view of the ocean. Can't wait till next year.

We just stayed at the Acacia from August 6-10 with both of our parents and our one year old son. It was his first vacation and he had a blast. The hotel is in a nice quiet residential area and is right on the beach. It is a very clean and well kept property. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was on the small side but it was heated and never crowded. Our son enjoyed the little kids area in the pool as it was his first time swimming. There were six adults and one child and there was definitely enough room in our accommodations. The kitchenette and fridge were great and well stocked but it is definitely good to bring your own cooking and cleaning utensils if you can. If not there are plenty of stores in the area but all are in driving distance. Also it is best to bring your own soap and shampoo as it is not provided but this is not really a big deal. The beds were pretty comfy but a bit noisy when you turn over since there is a plastic cover under the sheets but I understand it is there for hygienic reasons. We also had some inconsiderate neighbors during the morning as they liked to sit out in front of their room and talk loudly early in the morning but this has nothing to do with the hotel itself. I highly recommend this hotel for a nice family or couples getaway. We look forward to coming back real soon.
