Alton Motel
Ranked #4 of 17 Wildwood B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 August 2016

Traveling down for the weekend to participate in a triathlon, the Alton Motel and especially the manager Kristin were perfect for our needs. From our initial booking in the spring, through my last minute questions before traveling to Wildwood, Kristin made us feel welcome, even remembering our conversation from our original booking. Upon arrival it was more like visiting an old friend. The rooms were perfect as well, very clean and well stocked with anything we could need, with more than adequate supplies of toiletries and towels, as well as extra pillows. The water pressure in the showers was also a definite plus for me as well.
The nature of our visit required an early night Friday in order to awake by 4AM Saturday morning. Other than weekly Fireworks which brought us out of our room at 10PM for a perfect view from the sun deck, we were able to retire peacefully. The family makeup of our fellow guests allowed for quiet nights.
Saturday after completing our triathlon we were able to relax in the pool onsite before making use of the grill on the sun deck. Kristin was extremely pleasant and helpful in answering all our questions about the surrounding area, and providing directions to anywhere we needed to go.
After our excursion to the boardwalk which is only a 5 minute walk away, we returned again on the early side to another peaceful uninterrupted night.
The manager is definitely top shelf, and the with the rooms including Cable TV as well as complimentary WiFi, I couldn't see staying anywhere else. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Room Tip: Extremely well managed

We initially only booked for 1 night but considering how much the kids and us enjoyed the location of the motel frpm the boards....hospitality of the staff and having a blast, we asked to stay another night at the last minute!....the motel is 1.5 blocks from the boards and in the middle of all the fun on the boardwalk!...it's small and has a pool.
So glad we chose the Alton to stay at!

Came here last week and had a great stay.
The manager Kristin was so welcoming and accommodating.
Kristin went above and beyond to make us feel welcome
The Alton Motel is about a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk.
We will definitely come back again.

The room is clean. The pool hours can be a longer. Currently, it is 10am to 7pm. The motel need to invest some money to upgrade the equipment, too. There is no wifi on second floor and above. It only cost 30 bucks to buy a long range wi-fi antenna. Why not to buy one? Microwave are old and rusty, etc.

It's the most cutest but small but very cute motel. Clean And comfortable. Nice hard shower. Beds r okay. Very nice pool 4-6 feet so not for babies or 3 and under who cannot swim.2 blocks walking distance from the beach. Wawa is 2 blocks back from the motel. The staff was very courteous. The only thing that I wasn't too happy about was the size of the tv which was extremely small and there was no place to put personals. Overall I will return.
