My first time visiting Wildwood....I needed a few days break from work. The Buccolos were very friendly and went out of their way to help me whether it was figuring out directions or helping me retrieve my bike lock key from the folds of my convertible's roof! (long story). Suffice it to say they were very kind and pleasant. Room...

Stayed here Memorial Day Weekend, and it was only $95 a night!!! VERY reasonable! Staff was extremely nice, and the room was tidied every day. Though it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a casino resort and the rooms are small, it was clean, which is all I really care about. I would definitely stay here again!!

While I appreciate you staying with us, what you describe in your review sounds nothing like us. (Save for the kind staff!) Our guests mean the world to us, and all of our rooms are clean and up to date. It seems during your stay you got the wrong impression of how phenomenal we are, so I hope you'll give...

It was our first time in Wildwood. Great motel for family. Friendly staff. Complimentary coffee and cookies. Nice size pool. Block from the beach. So much to do. Very reasonable prices too. Thank you for an amazing time and making memories for my family. Will come back next year.

So being prime season to rental for the weekend, we booked this motel though Booking.com. The pictures that were provided on the site showed the more updated rooms in the main building, while because we were in a family room, we were in the building adjacent to the main one. Our room was dated, beds were comfortable, bath was adequate,...

First the location was superb. Next the rooms were very well appointed with fully equipped kitchen. We had 5 in our party and it was quite adequate to accommodate us.
