    I was attending the Firefighters Convention. Your Hotel had a room available for me at the time I needed it and booked it. I had a great time and would definitely come back for next year. Your staff was very helpful.

    We have never stayed anywhere else in the Wildwood area and would not even consider it. The Armada is the total package and always an enjoyable experience. Staff, accommodations, cleanliness--all are top rate.
