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!

This is one of the best, if not the best, places to stay in the Wildwoods and Cape May County. The rooms are beautiful with all the amenities you could want or need. It's truly a clean & cozy place and the staff are always attentive and helpful. Can't beat it because of the more than reasonable rates.

I brought my two nephews here at the end of the summer on a last minute trip. My rate was what is expected when booking same day at the end of the season but it was all worth it. The property was very clean, the owner and his son were very welcoming and gave me plenty of information about the...

Billip was very customer friendly and accommodating. We had a let check in after the office closed and he made it easy for us to obtain the room in his absence. He even gave his personal number to us to let him know when we arrived. Great doing business with him!!😃 Only complaint was no hangers on the clothes rack.🙄

The man who owns this is personable, helpful and runs a great little motel in a location 5 min. Off the parkway. Clean place and so convenient that it had a fridge, microwave, 2 burners and another sink outside the bathroom! We used this place in December and went on tours in Cape May. Would absolutely book this place again!

The place appeared to be acceptable regarding cleanliness, but the smell. The smell was not enjoyable or tolerable. The sheets were clean, so I slept with my head under the covers so I didn't have the smell all night. Yes, it is an older motel, and I really can't tell you what the smell was - probably just really old...

The owners were very accommodating when I showed up a day late. Had a situation at home and could not leave in the day we were supposed to. They have me nothing but calming words. The room was absolutely beautiful. The beds and decor were more of what u would expect from a high end hotel. The place was so...
