My daughter and I wanted beach-front convenience without boardwalk noise. This is right on the beach in Wildwood Crest. Our room was clean and comfortable. We were on the 2nd level by the stairs and near the pool so I was concerned about noise until I walked in to the room. The floor plan is so nice! You enter on...

Pros: I was able to get a room last minute which was fantastic. The location is perfect, right on the beach. Cons: I was given a room in the rear of the hotel where the maids cleaning room was. There was a ton of traffic and noise. I asked to be moved and was then moved thankfully. However, all the...

I was actually told by the hotel that my room (203) and room 204 were the worst rooms in the hotel. My sister was in another room and didnt even stay the first night as her room had a very bad smell and she is pregnant. The manager is very rude and aggressive to her and I decided to leave...

I haven't been to Wildwood in years and was excited to be staying right on the beach! As you may have guessed, my zeal turned to total disgust, as I opened the door to the room. The smell was very musty; the sofa was filthy; there were plastic chairs for kitchen table chairs; aluminum foil on the stove burners; the...

Pros: Location only counts as good. Cons: It is too bad that the hotel is in such poor condition, cleaning should be taken more seriously. I like simple, but clean hotels to stay with my children. Room was dirty (old carpet dirty), bad smell in the room. Bathroom is super small, -and I'm petite. We did not leave the same...

We enjoyed this newly renovated 1970's 3 story motel which is in the classic Jersey shore style, with outside balconies and no elevator. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms and property were recently updated. Our larger suite on the 3rd floor had a bedroom with 2 doubles and a living room with pull out sofa bed....
