Reviewed 17 August 2017

We drove four hours to hear from the desk clerk that our reservation that we made (and paid in full for) in June had been cancelled and given to another party without our knowledge. Rather than being apologetic or eager to resolve the problem, owner Cathy yelled at us that she got a cancellation email (we did not) and we will be put in a 1 bedroom room at the regular rate, which included an extra fee for the "extra people" we had.

So, six of us shared the less than average room because this was our vacation for the year but the clerk/owner/whoever staffed the front desk sporadically throughout their 8 hour work day did nothing to compensate for them selling our original suite to guests willing to stay longer. I'm actually surprised. I can't believe this business still makes money.

Other notes- guests were discussing over their balconies how theyve already written their bad reviews for the horizon motor inn and whenever asked for anything, the owner was visibly put-out.

Room Tip: Call and email to confirm, multiple times

My family did not have the most pleasant stay here. The floors are so dirty you have to wear shoes yet they claim they just replaced the carpets in 2016 throughout. They say there is a kitchenette but only one burner worked and when staying there for an entire week we cooked a few meals, and it's kinda hard to to that with one burner. Then there is the grill situation. The knobs are so worn out you have to take them off to turn them and hope for the best. We pulled out the sofa bed on a rainy day to all sit on it and not only were there no sheets supplied but it was covered in large stains! Gross!! One day they ran out of washcloths and didn't have any to bring us (they took our used ones) until after 7pm. We will never stay there again.

I have been going to North Wildwood for 30 years. I just discovered this gem last summer (2016) and I am booking my trip again this year in July!
It is by far the cleanest, friendliest and on point property motel in North Wildwood.

Not only is the owner accommodating, but the entire staff is very friendly! Everyone makes you feel so comfortable which makes your vacation even better! Last year we didn't even hit the beach. My kids had too much fun swimming all day in the pool & I relaxed on the lounge chair while listening to the music on the speakers the motel plays!

That was my most memorable N. Wildwood vacation and my kids still talk about it.
Don't pass The Horizon by.... Stay for awhile :)

We have been staying with Cathy and Jim for over 10 years now. They are great hosts and maintain an excellent property with easy access to the beach and the boardwalk. Rooms are clean and kept up to date. We love our annual stay here! Thanks, Gail, Heather, Kristian and Kayla Ramos xoxoxo
