The room was great and ocean front just what we wanted. Staff was very nice and helpful, room was very clean. Just steps to the boardwalk. We hope to get to stay their next year. Want to thank the people in the office for help me find a parking spot.

Used to walk by this hotel 20 years ago and say that someday I would stay there. Well I did, but now this hotel is really beat. Needs upgrades in all areas. Great location. Overall, this is a good hotel. Pool, decks, views, location - all really great, but it needs work.

The bathrooms are disgusting. Looks like they haven't been cleaned well in ages. Staff seemed friendly upon check-in and check-out. Balcony can be extremely annoying if you are above the common patio, constant talking all night. Not good with two small kids. No chain on the front door, and the bar to lock the sliding balcony door was broken. Also... More

Returned to The Waters Edge after a 5 year hiatus. (Family cottage shared on Cape Cod)Still the best place to stay in Wildwood Crest. Close to the boardwalk but far enough from the crazy crowd on it. Clean and well maintained. Good value. I can't wait until next year!

This was our first time staying at the Water's Edge. We had a two bedroom suite with two private balconies. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. It was just at the end of the boardwalk so it was quiet with a beautiful view of the ocean. We will definitely come back!

Staff was very nice, room was updated and clean. Coffee maker and coffee packet in room. Blow dryer in bathroom. Steps to the boardwalk entrance and we never used our car. Will probably go back, we had a great time!

My family has been going to the Water's Edge for several years. Every year we know we can rely on them to be extremely friendly and eager to help. The rooms are always very clean and the view onto the ocean from the balconies is a highlight that I look forward to every summer. It's close proximity to the boardwalk... More

This is a Wonderful resort. The service is great. Clean pool, room, and bathroom. If we a choice, we will choose it again in our next trip. We enjoy staying at the ocean view terrace. Also, the ping pong table and pool game table are great options. Highly recommended.
