Between a good room and being by the beach and boardwalk, and there's not really much more you could want. Thanks for this great feedback, and I hope we'll get to see you again soon!

We booked this hotel based on Trip Advisor ratings. The only downside to this hotel was it was a little smaller than we had hoped for a family of 4. There is nothing else but positive. The rooms and facilities were spotless, the staff was very pleasant and helpful, and the location was fabulous with two children under 10. The...

Barbara, I'm glad you and your family had a relaxing and fun time with us on your vacation! Our location near the rides is great, especially when the kids are tired after a long boardwalk evening! We hope to see you again sometime in the future!

This is no 5-star hotel - and that's fine! It was perfectly adequate for a boardwalk get away in OCNJ. The location was perfect, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and there was ample storage space. Our issue was in the poor advertising. The pool was offsite - fine, no big deal. But the "free wifi" was nonexistent....

Allison, I'm glad to hear you've found ours a rejuvenating place to stay when visiting Ocean City. I am sorry that you've had troubles accessing our WiFi -- we are in the process right now of discussing better options for reception. Hopefully it will be better then next time you visit us. I hope we can see you back again...

Great hotel and great location. Checked in on a Tuesday, room was ready at noon (3 hours before check in and as soon as we arrived.) We decided to book an extra night after checking out the room, and unfortunately it was booked so we would have to move after 2 nights (No problem, not their fault.) The girl helping...

Have been coming in September for the past three or four years and will continue. Love the Inn! Clean, great location, and good price in September. Relatively quiet in the evenings, given the location.

With all the weekend events going on in October, last minute reservations can be difficult. I was finally directed to Wild Dunes (not my first, second, or third choice). The building is as pictured online, a stand alone 3 level cement block, with parking on first floor and rooms on 2nd and 3rd. A sign out front advertises a pool,...

Very close to the beach, boardwalk and rides for the kids. Clean and comfortable room with enough room for 2 adults and 2 kids. Overall, it was a nice family trip. We would definitely stay here again and are looking forward to returning to Ocean City.

I found out my husband & I would be alone for a weekend & decided we'd go to the Jersey Shore, however, it was Fireman's Weekend in Wildwood.

We will ALWAYS stay at the Wild Dunes whenever we visit Ocean City. The rooms are perfect for families - the kids get the pull out couch; their own tv and counter space for all their purchases and their suitcases. We get the privacy of the king size bedroom with our own tv. The kitchenette is great, too! The location...
