All rooms have nice TV's, microwaves, coffee makers plenty of outlets and room darkening curtains. Only 2 floors so have to walk up stairs and all this is on their website. No hidden fees everything explained so no one should be in shock or disappointed when you go there.

Went To Wildwood for the Wildwood Duals (wrestling) and couldn't find anything available in the area except for the Sand Box Motel, to my surprise it was a hidden gem. They had a great staff who were more than accommodating, rooms were clean and comfortable and the price was more than reasonable in my opinion. Warning though, the hotel isn't...

The moment we stepped into this beautiful and friendly place, remarkably our long distance travel fatigue was virtually over. We were greeted with very courteous and friendly management personnel. The room facility including amenities and overall services rivaled the 5-Star hotel. Most important the bed was absolutely firm, very comfortable and very clean. We strongly recommend to those visitors planning...

We were heading out on a pelagic birding trip and needed a place open in the winter in Wildwood. The motel was an older property, but clean and more than sufficient for our needs. We had a king bed suite and appreciated being able to heat soup for our trip on the little stove. The mini frig was really small....

Good job always been good in everything I ask them to do or everything I needed. They also made me feel like I was at home. Sometimes when you are on the road and a way from home it's good to know that there are good people out there

My wife and I just stayed here and I must say we have. Even to a lot of places but this along with the staff and owners are a five star in our book and we where there in the Off season so we can't wait to go during the on season . I recommend this quaint little place highly.

Had to constantly ask for towels and housekeeping, No one at front desk in the night hours. Management will call to ask for full payment during mid stay. The area was good but housekeeping rarely serviced my room.

Stayed here in the off season it was a good price for the weekend. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were well done with paint and furniture in nice shape. The only thing that could be see as bad is the bathroom was small but it didn't matter to me.

The Sandbox motel is a definite must-stay at hotel when you are in Wildwood. You will definitely enjoy your stay there. You get a bang for your buck. It is very cozy and one of the few pet-friendly motels in Wildwood!
