This was a Great Place everyone was friendly the room was better then i expected. This will be the place my family will stay at on our trips to Wildwood. The only thing was the Barbaque Grill we tried for over an hour to cook on it and it was being used need to add more grills.

Nice hotel, clean rooms, staff is very friendly and customer oriented. Only issue was the water pressure is low in the shower. Only downside was No hot tub. I would recommend to others, and would definitely come back. Overall a great customer experience.
