We had a room on the sixth floor. The ocean/bay view was great but that's the nicest I can say about this place. When making the reservation, we were informed there was no elevator for floors 1-3. We were okay with that. However, the stairs are narrow and pitched awkwardly making it precarious to walk up and down. The substitute... More

My husband and I decided to go to the Lotus Inn for the weekend and we had such a wonderful time. The Lotus Inn staff were so helpful and the room was so clean. Our bed was comfortable and big. The Lotus Inn is the place to go to spend a relaxing and fun weekend.

Our family has been coming to Wildwood Crest for years and staying at the Lotus Inn. As always we were not disappointed. The staff was amazing. The room was immaculate. We had no problems at all. Were there problems with the elevator, yes, but the staff bent over backwards to make sure that our luggage was taken to where it... More

The location is great. Just one block from the beach. Nice park across the street. The elevator is broken and climbing to the 5th floor with 2 small children and all of our belongings was a nightmare. Had we known the elevator was broken when we made our reservations, we would have made alternate plans. However, we were only notified,... More

The hotel is older with outdated interior colors (the mauve and blues) bathrooms could use updating also- but it was very clean and the staff went above and beyond making the stay enjoyable. It is not far from the boardwalk and a bike rental is right across the street. But all in all it was good.. Kids loved the pool-... More

The Lotus Inn is a good hotel located in Wildwood Crest. The location is a little far from the boardwalk and you would probably need to drive if you have kids. To the beach it is one block and very easily assessible with ocean view from the hotel. The pool is a nice size and the breakfast that was included... More
