I wish a zero star rating were possible for this place. I have never left a bad review in my life and I work with vendors every single day. Worst experience and customer service I have EVER come across. Stay away at all costs. We thought this would be a good place to stay with our dog given the reasonable... More

This place deserves it's 5 star rating on Bring Fido. They are pet-friendly so you can bring your dog. In fact you can bring TWO dogs for $20 extra per night they welcome you and your dogs with open arms! Located on Ocean Avenue right at the start of the famous Wildwood Boardwalk. A 50's era motel, but well-maintained. It... More

You can tell the owners take pride in their motel because although the rooms are older, they are very clean and well maintained. The motel is across the street from the beginning of the boardwalk near Wildwood Crest. Just a short walk to take your dog on the walking/bike path that is dog friendly (poop bags are located along the... More

Another great stay at the Rus Mar with my chihuahua Taco. Owners are awesome and make everyone feel at home. I stayed in the new motel in the next block they recently purchased, the Rio, and it was beautiful and modern. Both motels are very very clean and nice. Kate in the office was very nice and helpful.

The room was appointed with a nice dresser, very comfortable beds, and conveniently- a coffee pot, mini refrigerator, and microwave which made it possible to fix both breakfast and lunch inside the hotel room. Importantly, it was very quiet at night, and provided a great nights sleep, especially after a night on the boardwalk. Speaking of the boardwalk, it couldn't... More

This is the cleanest motel we ever stayed in Wildwood. The owners Barb and Bob take great pride in their motel and it definitely shows. The beds were very comfortable, the furniture was very modern and everything worked as it should. They recently added a small gated yard for dogs to go to the bathroom. The tile floors were immaculate... More

Really nice place to stay. Super clean rooms, real close to the beach, staff is wonderful. They really go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. The other boarders were real respectful and we had everything we needed. My chihuahua enjoyed sun bathing on the balcony. Id def recommend this place and will be staying here next time!
