First off I love this place but... Always a but right. It is seriously in need of a remodel. Even to say 1980s standards. It is rustic for sure. Classic Wildwood however that is not a great way to stay in business today. Fine for short stays and kids as the pool is secured and ample. Rooms while clean are...

After reading the reviews, I'm sure I had about 3 panic attacks on my way there. My family and I stayed toward the end of July for the weekend. I honestly can say that I had a great time. The staff and location were ideal for my family. Does it need updated? yes. But aside from that we loved the...

Beat up and broken down! The furnishings are so old and worn out. The room could have been much cleaner. My husband and I slept on top of the sheets with our clothes on.. The only good thing about this place is the location. Spend your money somewhere else.

The reason I booked this hotel was for the swim up tiki bar.However, we were a bit disappointed that it closed everyday by 7pm?! We then found out you didn't have to stay at the hotel to access the tiki bar but would be a $5 cover. Which we would have done if we had known this. This is not...

Seven of us did a girls weekend getaway. We got two joining rooms, one with a kitchenette. The rooms itself were adequate. It's definitely a no frills place that could use a little updating (needs new bedding, new linens, new carpeting, etc). Pack slippers or flip-flops because the floor is gross! Our feet were black from walking on the rugs....

Not bad room was small shower had NO PRESSURE, but it was a place to sleep and shower right off the boardwalk! Pool was small but clean and lots of seating. Hot tub was warm, but who wants 100 degree water when its 95 degrees out? The Jets were very powerful and helped relax my muscles after a long day...

If you're looking for ****4-star amenities, go somewhere else. But, if you want good, clean, inexpensive, basic accommodations in a great, convenient location, with a friendly, helpful staff, give this place a try. Right across the street from the boardwalk and convention center and major Wildwood attractions. Requests for things like extra towels, a better TV, etc were taken care...

Room was nice for the price except pull out couch needs replaced...not comfortable to sleep on. Maintenance replaced the mattress which didn't help. Coffee in the lobby. Pool bar was great with entertainment every day except the lady bartender needs a new attitude!! Not friendly at all! Front desk and maid were very friendly. Would stay here again.

When I booked our reservation, I knew the hotel was old, but old can mean charming, it doesn't mean a dirty, crumbling vestibule of filth. --We arrived early and were told we would be called when our room was ready. Got the call and went up to find the room had not been touched after the previous occupant left. We...

Near lots of great restaurants. Close to boardwalk and ocean. View from our balcony was spectacular. We spent a lot of time there. The staff was so nice and very helpful. Fred made nice fresh coffee in morning and told great stories. Ryan was such a great help and has a very nice smile. Dorothy made us feel welcome. Loved...
