The room was small. The finishes were old. I had to use matches to start the burners on the stove. The water never really got hot enough. Spend a little more and stay at the Admiral instead it's right next door and way nicer.

Typical older shore motel showing it's age. While it sits in a good location and seems to have items not found at other motels, like miniature golf and seaside grill, it could use a whole lot of updating and maintenance. While our stay was end of year, minor problems and cleanliness were to be expected but my wife was definitely...

This was the WORST motel I have ever been to. Anyone reading this needs to find another place to stay! I'd recommend the Paradise Ocean Resort up the road! This motel was disgusting, filled with bugs, broken window, front door with huge gaps in it, disgusting/dirty carpet and tile, with terrible staff and management. We went here with our 6...

We had a bunch of friends visiting the Wildwoods and decided to stay in with them during their visit. Normally I choose the hotel that we will stay at and will research it greatly before booking a room. However, our friends were in charge of the stay and booked our 2 rooms. In all honesty, the only thing this motel...

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The first room they put us in (#330) was a nightmare, street view, which would have been fine because really how long do you stay in the room? This however was BAD, stained sheets and comforter, lamps that didn't work because there was no outlets, what they called a kitchenette...

Flooring around kitchen area cracked and broken, stove dirty and so old and beat up I would not cook on it. Only 1 plate 4 coffee cups and minimum of 6 utensils supplied....

This motel is in a good location. A 5 minute drive to the pier. There's free parking, a big pool, miniature golf course, outdoor grills to cook, beach front access. The hotel itself is dated. The room is pretty big. It has a small kitchen with a stove, full size refrigerator, microwave, sofabed and a separate bedroom with 2 full...

Cliffnotes: This was the most dirty/disgusting hotel I have EVER been in. I have never ever in my life been treated so poorly by employees and “management.” You should spend the extra money for a different hotel. You will regret it if you book this hotel. We planned to go to the hotel over Labor Day weekend. With the rates...

Room filthy. Mold and hair in bathroom. Wad of hair on towel I dried myself with. Broken lamp with wires hanging out. No sheets on one bed and no extras in room. Air conditioner broken. Curtains broken. No hot water. Pool dirty. Staff doesn't care...barely responded when told. NEVER AGAIN!!!

OK, so if you go there with the proper expectations, this motel will be exactly what you expect it to be. If you are expecting it to be a five-star resort, don't. It is an old fashioned motel in the Crest. However, I have to say the front office workers do go above and beyond to meet the customer's expectations,...
