I have no doubt this motel pays for and/or incentivizes for their reviews. I booked this place because of all the great reviews and location. The location is definitely great and right across from the beach and on site parking. Other than that there is no reason to stay here. The room was so dark, drab, and honestly kind of scary. The was a roaring loud rattling outside our window all night. The beds are a matress on a frame, no box spring. The mattresses were also completely caved in, slanted, and hard as a rock. I wouldn’t want to stay inside that room for more than 5 minutes ever again. The pictures you are seeing of the rooms are NOT at all representative of what they really look like. The couch was plastic pleather. No natural light in the room at all. We left right away unfortunately. I also see that the owner frequently “responds” to these reviews by calling it’s customers liars and trying to spin their reviews which is crazy. I’m sure they will get this taken down soon because there is NO WAY this is a 4/5 hotel. Hopefully someone can see this though before they book as it is definitely not worth $250 a night.
My husband Rob and I have stayed all over the island but the moment we found this place we never stayed anywhere else and never will! We always stay in the same room and last year we eloped at sunset on the dock of the bay in north wildwood and the owners/workers made sure to make our stay even more special for us. They always go over and beyond and have the cleanest rooms and sweetest hospitality staff ever. I truly love the owners and workers here and consider them family now. I look forward to being able to share this special gem with my future kids someday. Thank you harbor light. Love truly - Katy & Rob
My husband and I needed a room last minute for a family event in Ocean City. As I usually stay in another part of the shore(all hotels were booked)we decided to take the last room available. It was honestly posted as "no view" so we expected the worst.
Pleasantly surprised! Although it was tucked in a corner, it was very clean and roomy!
We did not use the pool or any other part of the resort but if time had permitted we would have, Will definitely stay again!
This resort is a friendly family run place! It’s clean and cared for if a bit dated. The pool was just what we needed after a long workout getting to north Wildwood and our room was even ready a bit early. The location allowed us to hit the beach, boardwalk and even some great night life. Free yoga mornings and beach concerts as well.
4 of us left Ocean City and biked to North Wildwood to see what that part of the Jersey shore is all about. We were not disappointed! North Wildwood is clean, and friendly. The beaches are free and you can get hotdogs from the friendliest guy around 3rd street. Iced coffee and ice cream are on the beach also. All of this is good to know if you are staying at the Harbor Lights. Along with their friendly staff, you cannot beat the location. PS if you forgot something, Russo’s is a great little shop close by. Enjoy this new found gem! I hope to again soon.
We had 7 people in our room, one person is in a wheelchair. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They took the time to measure the doorways beforehand to make sure his wheelchair would fit. It was a little cramped for 7 people and our service dog, but worked out fine. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable (firm). It was quiet at night. The beach nearby is a shorter beach, very close, family friendly & clean. The neighborhood was also clean and safe to walk around at any hour. Beach wheelchairs are available on 8th Ave. and 15th Ave. on the beach at the sheds. 5th Ave. has a wheelchair ramp.
