We stayed here for 4 nights over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. The hotel was in a great location in Wildwood Crest - right near the boardwalk and beach. The pool was nice, our kids had a great time. Everyone that we talked to was so friendly and had some great suggestions for places to go for...

This is an obviously low budget motel right on the beach. We rented four rooms near each other on two floors, and all of the rooms had significant maintenance problems. The typical problems included: ineffective air conditioners, constantly running commodes, dirty linens, loose shower plumbing fixtures, and the smallest elevators and hallways imaginable. The regular sized trolleys (to transport luggage...

We have been staying at this Motel for 10 years. Every year we notice changes. The staff is great. The staff accommodates our group. I would recommend this motel. It is close to the boardwalk. The coffee and cookies in the Community Room are a nice touch.

WARNING - this will be long! Mr. and Mrs. Adamo Pepitone own the Gondolier Motel in Wildwood Crest, NJ. After meeting many guests this past week, they have owned it about 7-8 years. It is an older motel that sits right on the ocean and has been incredibly maintained and updated as needed. I needed a room that would be...

We had another wonderful stay at the Gondolier! Got a reservation on very short notice and the process was so pleasant. Check-in was a breeze, and the room was ready early, allowing us to hit the beach! The room was clean and well-tended every day. The Gondolier is very close to the start of the Boardwalk, so after a day...

This was our second trip to the Gondolier and again they did not disappoint. The location is perfect for the pool, beach and boardwalk. I parked the car and didn't drive again until we went home. This family owned hotel is well cared for and CLEAN. For our second family stay, we were treated very well by the front desk...

My best friend and I took a girls trip and stayed at the Gondoiler this past weekend, it was beautiful, clean, amazing, and a breath taking view. The staff is the best I have ever experienced, julia is the sweetest, most helpful, genuinely nice person and helped us so much, and the "handy man" is so cool and hard working....

We just returned from another great week at the Gondolier hotel in Wildwood Crest. The beautiful beach is just across the street and the boardwalk is within walking distance.

First of all, this was my only bucket list item...a trip to the Wildwoods with my children so they will have an excellent, fun last memory of their mom. We picked this motel because we had stayed here years ago and it has only gotten better! We are on the third floor, ocean view... oh, my,my,my.... the view is simply...

We have been coming here for the past 6 years and would go nowhere else. The location is perfect--right across from the beach access and just down the sidewalk from the boardwalk. The motel is always so clean and the owners make you feel right at home. The pool is maintained perfectly and the entire grounds remain meticulous. We feel...
