Stayed here for one night for a local triathlon race. Just needed a place to crash the night before and was not looking for too many amenities. Was pleasantly surprised by the room itself and very happy with the friendliness of the staff. And if we were staying longer, the location right on the beach is tough to beat! I'd...

Everything was good, BUT, didn't feel that the children should be out after 11:00, (even that's too late) yelling and making noise with a ball. Also early in the morning before 8:00 AM. Same noise. I understand that they are on vacation, but so are we. Don't think this should be allowed. .I have stayed many places and never had...

Based on pictures and write-up on website I was very disappointed. Room 209 left a lot to be desired and I was disappointed with the fact this room was very outdated and needed attention desperately. Upon checking in could not unlock the door and this was to be an issue for the few days that we stayed there. I forgot...

This was the worst place we've stayed at. Hasn't been updated since 1970. Says it can accommodate 6 people, but really only two adults with two small children. There wasn't even a hook in the bathroom to hang your clothes. Had a small WALL sink. Very, very small. Ask for room dimensions. Just look for a different place.

It is very ordinary for the price and the manager is quite a character. She warned people who were splashing some water out of the pool, yelling rules all the time in a very rude manner and not very accomodating.

This was a decent hotel, I went here for the Wildwood Half Marathon weekend. IT was nice because it was right on the beach, had a kitchenette in the room and had a nice pool. The woman at the front desk was very nice and let us check in early.
