Staying at the Cardinal is becoming a yearly tradition. Back for our second Beach Blast weekend was just as expected, clean and friendly. More than half of our 2 soccer teams, along with family and friends enjoyed our stay. Clean pool, bbq grill, tidy rooms amd great rates will keep us coming back, again and again!

I have stayed at The Cardinal since I was 18 years old and went to the Jersey Shore with my friends. I continued staying there after I was married with a child of my own. The Cardinal is a family owned and operated facility with a family friendly atmosphere and I always noticed how hard they worked at keeping their...

My daughter and I stayed here last year for Wildwood's Beach Blast soccer tournament. It was a great deal for the entire weekend and fellow team mates and families stayed as well so we called early in abd reserved multiple rooms and received a slight discount. This motel is definitely the typical Wildwood hotel. Clean rooms, nice sized pool, and...

I have stayed at the Cardinal the past three years for Wildwood's Beach Blast Soccer tournament and never had any issues. However, my experience this past Memorial day weekend was terrible and I will...

The Carridoen was sold out (Yuri the owner is great, he found me a room at the Cardinal) but the Cardinal had an...

I have been staying at the cardinal for 30 years. I love the atmosphere and the owners/ staff are always, and always have been, wonderful. The rooms are not what I would call modern... But that's what it's all about. As soon as I arrive I can feel that same feeling I would get as a young child going on...

Bugs in room, room dirty, musty, out-dated, zero sound insulation (literally sounded like there was a herd of elephants in room above), guests were noisy and obnoxious, staff was rude. Would never, ever recommend .

I recently booked a room at the cardinal and was told I would have to stay on the non-pool side. They made it sound like I was being punished!!! However when I arrived I could not have asked for anything better. This was not a punishment. The non-pool side as they called it was quiet and peaceful. The maid I...

“If you are travelling with young children and want to have a separate room for them, ask to reserve a suite. The children's beds are located in an actual bedroom and there is a pull out couch for parents. Those rooms also include a stove for cooking as well as plates and utensils and a full-size refrigerator.”
