Every sep we come down to wildwood over my wife's birthday and tie in the car show on the boardwalk. We enjoy our stay at the armada with great people like Bonnie & Steve & Gina & oh yea the new member of the family. We like our same room which we stay in now for at least 15 years....

Always a pleasure returning to the Armada. We schedule our stay to co-inside with the Wildwood boardwalk vintage car show. We book the same room on beach/ocean front right on the sand. We stay for a minimum of 4 days and enjoy every minute of it. Staying at an original 1950s Art Deco model makes it even more special.

Steve and Bonnie, the owners, couldn't do more to accommodate the guests. From check in to check out, it was a very pleasant experience. Have been staying there every year for over 15 years, and we just love it.

I enjoyed Armada and they are very accommodating. Will return again. My friends bed was not comfortable for her and they came in and replaced the whole bed with a new one. Who does that today? Also returning for the second time was nice to see the same people again.

We really enjoy coming back to Wildwood in the summer. Enjoyed the Car Show and the Irish Festival, and as always, we enjoyed riding our bikes every day on the boardwalk and beyond. Loved staying at the Armada and having ring side seats for the entertainment and fireworks on our last night. Happy times.
