Tangiers Resort Motel
Ranked #54 of 68 Hotels in Wildwood Crest
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Just spent another FABULOUS week+ at the Tangiers! (8/24-9/1) My family and I have been staying here for 20+ years…The recent owners, Bruce and Arlene are the best! We never feel like clients but more like family.

I must comment on some things from other reviewers…

This hotel is a throwback to the Doo Wop era…the architecture is super cool. Yes, the bathrooms are dated but, think retro..pink and black tile? yes! :)…but more importantly they are CLEAN! and if you should ever have an issue with cleanliness or linens the housekeeping staff is more than happy to accommodate as are Bruce and/or Arlene..the rooms themselves are a good size for up to 4 people, 2 standard beds, if you have four adults or teens you should consider two rooms as you would in any other hotel. That said, I will say, if you intend to spend ALL of your summer vacation in Wildwood in your room then maybe a shore vacation is not for you.

But, if you are like me and want to stay where you feel welcomed (and welcomed back) where you can lounge by the pool, grill up a burger, play some ping pong, walk a block to the beach, catch a trolley to the boardwalk or simply relax than the Tangiers is for you.

They also have great specials throughout the season, and a beautiful gift shop (that has anything you may have forgotten, tooth paste, etc.) as well as souvenirs.

Also on the property is the Doo Wop Coffee Shop, open for breakfast and lunch and nightly for ice cream.
Jason and his staff are wonderful, warm and friendly. The food is spectacular! So much more than standard fare…you have to try it!

Already booked for next year, it can’t come soon enough!

The Tangiers is a family-friendly motel close to the beach with a restaurant on site - awesome breakfast and good coffee! Rooms are clean and comfortable and the managers are more than accommodating. We had a wonderful time Labor Day weekend - wish we could have stayed longer!

We have stayed at Tangiers two years in a row. This year we stayed August 2nd-6th, and last year, August 3rd-6th. For a basic double queen bed room, it cost us $150 per night. This motel is the second hotel in from the beach and boasts nice ocean views. It is located about a block away from the beginning of the boardwalk. Tangiers seems to be a sure bet as far as knowing what we're getting.

The positives: Nice location, quick walk to boardwalk, Primo Hoagies, and Tony Lukes. Very pretty ocean views that are mostly unobstructed if you are on the third floor. The grounds and pool area are relatively clean and well kept.

The negatives: When we stayed in 2012, the room seemed much cleaner than it was this year. It didn't appear the room was vacuumed or windexed prior to our arrival. They did not change the sheets during our stay, only remaking the bed with the same used linens. As with most motels along the shore, the bathrooms are very outdated. The toilet did not work that well - having to hold down the handle during the entire lengthy flush process.

Overall, Tangiers is a reliable motel for a fair price.

Room Tip: Request a third floor room for better ocean views.

Owners are very Nice & friendly, which is why I booked a stay here without looking @ the place first. Checking in as a family of 5.....3 of which are teenagers, make it really hard to be comfortable in the room. Those pictures the Tangiers put up are False Advertisement to say the least!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very Unhappy ;-(

The hotel from the outside is very nice, ping pong table,shuffle board and chest set on deck all nice features for the kids when they get bored.The pool they say is heated but felt cold to me everytime I went in I know some hotels turn the temp down on the heated pools during the day so that may have been the case. The pool closes at 7 so I dont know if it would be warmer at night. We didnt try the Doo Wop Cafe but it was crowed every morning so I guess they have good food. The location of the motel is great, right across the street from the beach bike rentals, small playground and basketball court 3 blocks away. 10 blocks to the begining of the boardwalk. Only con I see to the location is the hotels across the street CAPE COD INN and THE FLEUR DE LIS some of the people in those hotels are loud at all hours of the night.
Ok now on to the room itself. We stayed in a standard room it was a good size room for 4 people ive stayed in smaller rooms before at other hotels so this was a plus for us and also clean. There was definitley a musty smell, I know we are right off the beach and its to be expected but I packed air freshener so it wasnt to bad and had the door open most of the time to air out the room. The bathroom is dated but very clean. Tv is 19 or 20 inch tube tv, kids didnt care they still watched their cartoons in the morning. There wasnt enough outlets to charge your cell or laptop or camera had to unplug the lamp to charge one thing at a time. We had no problem with the beds being to firm, no one woke up with a sore back so thats plus.
The a.c worked but didnt use it to much because I think it made the musty smell worse at times.

This place is not terrible but i would NEVER stay here again or recommend it to someone. Its SUPER tiny, so much so that it looks like dwarfs live here. It smells very musty but not unbearable. The beds are very very hard i had trouble falling asleep. Theres no trying to talk this place up because its an average run hotel/motel with average rates for average to below average rooms. So i conclude that it would be in you best interest to find a better place to stay in Wildwood. Unless of course you are a dwarf and like the smell of mustiness then by all means, knock yourself out!

Great location at the Shore and you are appropriately paying for geography. Motel is clean but aged and getting run down. Employees are pleasant and attentive. Beds are firm and comfortable for me. Again the key factor is the half block walk to the Wildwood Crest Beach. If you have been a Jersey Shore vacationer this place will be exactly what you were expecting and you will be quite satisfied. If you are new to the Jersey Shore understand that allot of what Wildwood Crest is about is tradition and family vacations from the past and don't expect and new place with lots of amenities. Interestingly one of the key benefits of this hotel is that it faces North and is quite protected from the afternoon sun making for pleasant environment.
