“Good for a older hotel”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The rooms were very clean and the staff was very pleasant. My husband was not happy with the main door to the room have a window in it that you could put your hand in and the sliding door to the balcony would not lock. The stove was clean but the burners were so old I was afraid to use them because they did not sit flat on the stove. I would love to see the older hotel stay in wildwood because that is what that town is all about, and that is why people love coming down to the shore.With all the new condo being built I'm afraid these places love are going to be a thing of the past. Please upgrade your buildings and your rooms, get rid of the popcorn ceilings that have stains on them, wall paper that is pealing lets keep wildwood on the map. I did love that the hotel was right off the beach, close to the boardwalk, and the most important thing that matters most of all is the staff was kind and friendly. thanks for having us.

For ten years, now, my sister and I have made reservations at the Waters Edge in Wildwood Crest New Jersey. It is our "second home" when vacationing. We always get an ocean front room, usually on second or third floor. The beds are comfy, the TV's are great, we have a kitchen and extra pillows, blankets, iron, hair dryer, coffee maker (with coffee and filters!) Handy elevator, pool, short walk to boardwalk and friendly hosts. What more can you want? Love it, especially off-season. Always sorry to go home. Also the sun deck is fantastic and has steps that go to the pool. Private balcony is fun at night to watch ocean or you can walk to pier from beach.
You can be in Cape May in less than a half hour to shop or have dinner there.

Room Tip: We always get an ocean front room on the second or third floor. "C" type with two bedrooms...

The room was very clean and well kept. Each room faces the ocean. I stayed on the first floor and still had a great view every morning. There were two beds and a pull out couch and a kitchen area. The bedroom and kitchen/living areas each had a TV. The pool was nice and was heated. There is also an area to sunbathe on the second floor if there is no room by the pool. The boardwalk is about 3 blocks away.

The rooms are all ocean front with great views. The rooms are very clean and all the staff are very easy to deal with. Most of the rooms look like they have been recently updated and are very modern with flat screen televisions. The hotel is right off of the beach and 2 blocks from the boardwalk so it doesn't matter if you are a beach goer or are going for the boardwalk everything is within walking distance. I would highly recommend the waters edge to anyone going to wildwood.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms do offer an ocean view and most are efficiency rooms, rooms on the higher floo...

My husband and I have been coming to Water's Edge for years. The views of the ocean are beautiful. We look forward to the quiet unhurried atmosphere. The entire staff from the office to the maid service are polite, respectful and helpful. It is clean neat and well kept. Each year something has been updated (this year was the kitchen area). It is close to the boardwalk on the Southern end. It is a great "get away" from the everyday hectic life and demands that we all have.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean have a nice little balcony to sit and enjoy the ocean views.

Our stay at the Waters Edge was a great experience! Every room here faces the ocean, we really enjoyed sitting on our private balcony watching the sunrise every morning and relaxing with the ocean view every night... The rooms are very comfortable and with the small kitchen in every room you can make a quick meal in your room instead of always needing to go out for food, but if you want to go out for food your within walking distance of some great restaurants! And the best part is that you're only a very short walk to the Wildwood Boardwalk! And I don't think I've seen a more friendlier staff anywhere.

Room Tip: All rooms 2nd floor up have a great view of the ocean!
