Chris and Cathy were great! You can tell they truly care about the motel and about your experience. They also provided good suggestions on where to eat & places to go. This couple works tirelessly around the motel and it shows. As a child, we used to vacation in Wildwood Crest & as an adult I've been back here/there through...

I have been going down to the Wildwoods for 32 years with my family and this motel is by far the cleanest motel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are spotless as well as the grounds, pool etc. The owners are kind and they take such pride in their business. I like that it's a smaller motel and feel...

This is the second time I stayed at the motel. The owners are fantastic. They keep the property spotless. The rooms are super clean, beds are comfortable, and only a few hundred feet away from the beach. I am definitely staying at The Mark 1 Motel when i come back to Wildwood Crest

Although we visit the Wildwoods at other times we have been going there to the NJ State firemen's convention in September for over 30 years, and been staying at the Mark 1 motel with our fire group for the past 3 years. We have stayed in many other motels over the years but never a place so immaculate and well...

Made a last minute reservation for a late summer beach overnight. Room 22 has the a/c condenser in it, so steer clear. Very noisy room made for an uncomfortable night. Has a big in ground pool which the kids loved. Inquire about the particular room if you plan to stay for longer. Many people swear by it in the reviews...

I have been going to this hotel for the past 6 years. The room are big and very clean. If there is a problem the owners live on premises. The pool area has chairs and tables with a bbq. You are steps from the beach. This is family orientated hotel. I stay at the hotel but they rent houses too....

Quiet place for families. Close to beach, heated pool. The owners are terrific! We have been returning for decades. This year had 20 family members staying in 6 rooms/apartments. Thank you Chris and Kathy!

People were friendly. Room was neat and clean. Air conditioning was good. Location was excellent. Room air refresh was a little excessive; needed to air out the room for couple of hours. Ready to come back. 10:00AM checkout is too early; 11:00am would be much better. Last minute booking for us. Wish we were motivated to book months ago.

The hotel was not at all what I expected. It was old, damp, smelly, not great for just a couple. It was more of a low budget place to bring the kids where there was a pool and if you smoked. The check in area smelled so bad of chemical perfume or something.
