We stayed at the Windward once again (4th year in a row). The owners, Pat and Will, are simply the best. They go above and beyond to make your stay great. The pool at the Windward is large enough to accommodate everyone and it is incredibly clean!! The Windward is a block away from the beach and the beginning of... More

My entire family has stayed at the Windward for over 20 years. Pat and Will are friendly and helpful. They are wonderful hosts. The Windward is clean, well maintained and the pool is great. The location is great. A few blocks from the convention center it's quiet yet a quick walk to the convention center or boardwalk attractions. I've been... More

Have now stayed at this establishment two years in a row for a golf outing, and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the location is perfect and the owner who also works the front desk is the greatest. He's very personable, remembers your name, and continually is working for your comfort and pleasure. Can't wait until... More

Just spent a long weekend at Windward Motel in Wildwood and had a great time. Will and Pat run a very clean place, and are the most friendly and helpful owners I have ever met. Went out of their way to help with maps for bike rides, and the package deal we had was tremendous with excellent meals and low... More

The manager of the hotel was excellent, friendly, and helpful and made the lodging experience a great one. The room was clean, and despite our early check in was ready almost immediately. The room was clean and quite large. The motel was quiet and located a small distance from the piers on the Wildwood board walk right at the start... More

We just came home from a week at the Windward. Will and Pat (the owners) are the best - very accommodating. The motel has a strong family atmosphere and is VERY clean and comfortable.

My family has stayed here for years. The owners are VERY nice and hospitable. I find the one negative review of the motel very strange. We will continue to come to this motel when visiting Wildwood, our kids wait for the doughnuts (and us the coffee) that are put out for the guests each morning!
