Got early check in no prob, but, the room reeked of mildew! I had a sore throat n headache from what I'm sure was mold exposure. When we got home I had to wash everything we took with us, including the bed pillows because the stench permeated all our belongings, it was gross. The a/c unit rattled horribly, lousy nights...

We stayed here over the weekend! It was the worst experience I ever had at a hotel/motel ever! Upon arrival at 10:30am, I was told we could not get our beach badges for the day or park in the lot until 2pm. The staff especially the older man was extremely rude! Upon check-in, I was told I had a balance...

I came down to Seaside for the weekend with friends and made reservations to stay here. We were on a tight budget deciding where to stay so I was not expecting the highest quality but having stayed at motels in Wildwood for the same price I wasn't expecting it to be horrible either. Let me tell you it was. Upon...

The location could not be beat and the set-up of the suite was great. It was surprisingly quiet and the bathroom was clean. It was a bit confused at check-In, but the staff was nice. There was no maid service between Saturday and Sunday and we could have used the recycling bin emptied. Also, the A/C had a hard time...

Really enjoyed our stay, thanks so much! Management was great (thanks for the tip on the Crab Claws restaurant) , the rooms were clean (easily accommodated 2 adults and 2 teenagers). Hopefully we'll be back next year (all the way from Virginia).

This hotel is in a great location just off the boardwalk and overlooking the beach. The owners are vigilant about keeping people who are not guests at the motel out. This is understandable with so many people up and down the boardwalk all the time. This is more of a "self serve" motel, you need to turn in your towels...

“We were in 6B and it was a perfect location. I think the rooms with outside doors on the first floor are the best.”

“The rooms on the second floor are better for views of the ocean, but the only stairs are in the back of the building.”
