This motel was very nice and clean right at the quiet beginning of the boardwalk and beach. When we first arrived our room was not going to be ready for another hour so the woman at the front desk gave us our parking pass and a key card to the guest pool bathroom so we could get changed and enjoy...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. At this time, we are unable to keep the pool open much later than 7pm as we like to respect the guests that are staying in close proximity to the pool itself.

I stay at this hotel every year. The staff is great, the view is superb, the pool is warm, and the location cannot be beat!! Even had extra coffee filters when I ran out at the office, and had change for the laundry room. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to see Wildwood.

You harassed our front desk staff to check-in at 11am when check-in is 3pm. We also specifically told you that this was a non-view room when you made the reservation. You left the room in such terrible conditions that it took two housekeepers to clean this room. All this aggravation for a one night stay!
