Just got home yesterday and missing the Matador already! Great staff and very CLEAN rooms. I love it because it is close to the beach and boardwalk, but still very peaceful. Already booked for next year!!!!

You know how you go on vacation and when you leave, you had a good time but are glad to be home. Not after a trip to this place, we didn't want to leave. Great location, clean rooms, awesome decks and great staff. Will definitely be back!

The Matador was convenient to the beach and Boardwalk. The kids enjoyed the pool and I liked the sun decks. Rooms were spacious and clean. The staff was helpful and called when we left something behind after checkout. If we traveled to Wildwood again, we would return here. Quality motel comfort.

I visited the Matador this summer with my family. We've been vacationing in Wildwood for years but this was our first time at the Matador. The hotel itself is OK, although the pool is only open until 6:00 and is overrun by children at all other hours. My biggest issue was with the front desk staff. I walked in the...
