Typical shore place. Really nice owners. Great location! No problems and I am sure if there were the owners would take care of it promptly. Adam and his family have multiple properties at Wildwood Crest. My next stay will be Aztec to try it out! Always stayed at American Safari. Never problems-clean! If we arrived early depending on what time...

We stayed on the 3rd floor. Clean room, but dated. Front desk staff was pleasant and very helpful especially with restaurant recommendations. We were a group of 23 people and we were all pleased with our stay.

We have been coming to this motel for several years for a family reunion. It is average. We have an ocean front room every year and the ocean view is spectacular. The room is ok, Outdated, TINY bathroom! It is kept clean and the staff is pleasant. Jerry went out of his way to let us use the party room...

We've had our ups and downs with hotels in Wildwood, and finally were directed here by a friend. Well, they were right. Adamo could NOT be nicer and more accommodating. Rooms are very clean - be careful about that door latch that says 'do not disturb'! Without your glasses, if you happen to land on it, they won't clean your...

My husband and I have stayed here two years in a row and we can't wait to come again. The motel is extremely clean and excellent oceanfront location but the main reason we return is the staff. Adam the owner is very accommodating and is a great resource. Jerry the caretaker is absolutely amazing - he goes above and beyond...

I give the Gondolier Motel five stars. But don't expect a cookie cutter chain hotel that can be found in the tourist district of any large city. When I head to the Jersey Shore, especially Wildwood, I'm looking for character and personality in my stay. And the Gondolier has both. It's a family owned hotel, one of three. I can...

Clean rooms, daily maid service, fresh bath linens daily. Very friendly staff. They also own American Safari, and Aztec. This property is right off the beach with parking for one car per room. Features a nice swimming pool, sun deck and free Wi-Fi. A TV in both the living room and bedroom. Limited DirecTv service. I would stay here again.

This was our second trip to the Gondolier and they never disappoint. It has a great location on the crest but close enough to the boardwalk. There are bike rentals and a park with basketball court right across the street. The rooms and bathroom are extremely clean and the sheets and blankets smelled like they had just been washed. The...
