Reviewed 12 September 2016 via mobile

We rented the 2 room suite it was huge! The motel needs a lot of cosmetic work but the manager said they were going to take care of that over the winter ,they have new ownership and they are trying to get everything fixed up. The motel is in a very central location 1 block from boardwalk pretty much in the center of the boardwalk north to south. The pool was nice and clean, a/c was super cold, 2 things I really didn't like was there's no parking they give you a permit and you have to park on the street somewhere and the bed in our room was horrible! Kristin if you read this I forgot to say something about it when you asked me how everything was, but omg that matress is like concrete! Kristin the manager was the best thing about the motel she bends over backwards for whatever you need and is super friendly and was carrying on with everyone, everyone liked her. Overall it was a good experience

Me and my girlfriend were looking for a place close to the boardwalk and somewhere you could check in and be 21. This place was close and was great. The room was clean and was just enough for our weekend. The only things that aren't great here are the parking which you need to park on the street but they do give you a pass. And the wifi is really bad. But I had a great time and will think about staying here again.

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.
