Loved that it was located ON the beach! No streets to cross! Shorter walk to the ocean than a lot of Wildwood hotel locations. Office staff was very nice as well as the travelers visiting at the time. We had unit 11, which was 1st room from oceanfront unit. Pool is just outside the door. Our bathroom is in need...

It's right there in front of you. Keeps the kid folk happy. Beach. Pool. Newly upgraded rooms are very nice. Nice hot tub. Rooms are a bit small and the bathrooms are still in need of upgrade. Overall a great experience for the whole family.

After seeing this motel on previous visits to Wildwood Crest, we decided to make 2014 the year to stay at the Lampliter Oceanside Resorts. By far, this was the best place we have ever stayed at when visiting Wildwood Crest. The rooms had been remodeled during the off-season period. The room we stayed in had an ocean/pool view. We have...

I am not a beach person. My wife is. The Lamplighter is the only Wildwood area hotel where I actually enjoy going. I especially appreciate four attributes. The first one is that it is directly on the beach. No roads to cross lugging your beach supplies. Sittingon the balcony without traffic going by is relaxing. The second is scale and...

The hotel is right on the beach, it doesn't get better than that! The beach is clean and the ocean is beautiful. Love to watch the sun rise every morning while drinking my coffee. The pool is always warm and the hot tub is great! Several gas grills placed at the resort allow you to cook out at any time....

The beach is close and 100 steps from your room! The rooms are clean, rooming and comfortable. The staff is friendly. A great place for a family vacation. We stay on the Oceanside efficiencies and it is our home away from home and our families and friends have been coming here for 20+ years. The location is fabulous!
