I had stayed here over 10 years ago with some friends. This was the first time my husband has been here. Really has not changed much in the atmosphere. Still has the old "Doo Wop" feel that the Wildwoods are known for. The room was clean the staff was very friendly. Even though the motel was fully booked the pool...

Clean motel with very friendly staff. All necessary amenities, including morning coffee. Nice ocean view from the balcony and only one block from the beach and less than that to the boardwalk. Mini-fridge is a huge help for taking beach snacks.
