Nice motel, our second year staying there, is nice and clean. A little dated but maintained. Owners are very friendly, pool is clean. Closes at 6pm though which is a downside. Overall a really great little motel in North Wildwood. One block from the beach and the tram car.

This was our first time staying at the Golden Rail. It was an impromptu vacation planned about 2 weeks before we actually arrived at the hotel. Initially our stay was only supposed to be for 3 nights but we added on before we got here to 8 nights. From the moment we checked in, the owners have been beyond exceptional!...

Beautiful pool. It was well taken care of. The owners were very nice people. They were always there to help you. It was close to the boardwalk But not so close that it would disturb your sleep.I would definitely recommend it

Stayed there three years ago,great place very wonderful people in office. Very nice and clean room with tv in each room. They even let us stay parked there after we checked out to go on the boards afterward in the morning. Great location not far from boardwalk,really can't say enough of how we really enjoyed ourselves there.

“The type 2 rooms are incredibly spacious, and I'd recommend the 1st floor if you've got little ones.”

“Spend a little money on new bedding and towels, and get softer toilet paper! Raising your room rates just a little bit in order to accommodate those things will be WELL WORTH IT!”
