The hotel itself is OK, staff is nice, location is OK, BUT be prepared.. the doors are closed after aprox 10 at night, so if you are planning a late arrival, it's very possible that you will not get in till next morning. The room has a fridge, TV and coffee machine (everything old, but OK), however no plastic cups...

I recently stayed in Unit #305 at the Cara Mara and it was fantastic. The floor is new, couch is new and all freshly painted. There's a flat screen in the living room and a small tv in the bedroom. The bedroom actually has 2 QUEEN beds; not DOUBLES... so nice! I love the view and the pool. New Management...

I have stayed at the Cara Mara many times over the years and it has become one of my favorite spots to stay. I've stayed in at least 5 different units and each time it was a very nice stay. The management was very courteous and polite and always available. I usually stay in a two room efficiency. All the...

Reviewing my trip from August 2012. Cara Mara is located in Wildwood Crest, directly across from Centennial Park. Overall it was average…not bad and not the best. Maid service is not what it used to be when I was younger. I could remember maids coming into your room and vacuuming, washing the sink & bathtub…basically cleaning the entire room. Now-a-days...

We just returned from a great stay at Cara Mara in Wildwood Crest! We booked this hotel last minute (2 days before arrival) so I wasn't sure what we would be getting ourselves into. The Cara Mara is located a block from the ocean and about 5-6 blocks from the start of the boardwalk. We arrived late and they were...

We just had a great long weekend Fri-Mon 6/22-6/25/2012.. at Cara Mara. The place is in a great location away from the crowd and close to the beach. Our room was clean and a ok - just ok because choices were limited at the time of booking. I would have a chance to book to a better room on the...

If you're looking for a hotel with all the guidos in jersey, then stay here. It's a great location, but horrible parking. And if you have a truck like my husband does then forget it. People were obnoxious, drunk and partying all night. Rooms didn't have tvs in them, only the "kitchen" attached did. Wouldn't recommend.

We haven't been to the Cara Mara for several years and decided to book an early summer stay this weekend. Everything exceeded our expectations. Our oceanview two-room unit with a kitchenette and flat-screen TV was clean, roomy and bright, and boasted a terrific view of the new fitness park, beach and ocean. (FYI: We decided to return to the Cara...

My son and I stayed at the Cara Mara a year ago. I knew from that visit to not rent rooms ending in 11 or 12 (which don't have a beach/ocean view). I also knew that the online information for a type "F" room layout is accurate only for third floor (for lower floors, kitchenette and bathroom are in the...
