I can't say enough about the Water's Edge!!! Beautiful, great location and beyond clean!!!! Diane in the office was very helpful, the cleaning staff did an absolutely perfect job, the maintenance staff great! Stayed in Room 503 for four nights then 402 the last two nights both had a private oceanfront balcony! I can't wait to stay here next year!

Great price, Great Service, Great Location all contributed to a wonderful stay. Seeing the sunrise over the ocean from the balcony was a fantastic experience. Access to boardwalk, beach and town was short and easy, would recommend to all friends and family.

This was our family's first stay at Water's Edge - we were very impressed with the place. The staff was very friendly and helpful - from making the reservations, to questions we had before our trip, to parking when we arrived - very kind and courteous. It's a great, family-friendly resort. We stayed in a room type "C" - 4...

We just returned from our stay, I was very impressed with how large, clean and updated our room was. Some Wildwood beach hotels are dated and worn down, but it was wonderful here, with a great beach front view at an affordable price. They supplied everything you could need, right down to baking sheets covered with foil, shampoo, iron and...

We took our 2 teenage nieces for a few nights to the Wildwood/Wildwood Crest area. I found this great motel on line and although I was unable to get the dates and room type I initially requested to stay, I was able to book 2 nights in two separate rooms and relatively reasonable rates for the summer resort

The room was very clean and modern with all the amenities you could want at the beach. Great location just off the beach. Parking was easily accessible. Great value for the money. I would definitively recommend it highly.
