Nice motel, our second year staying there, is nice and clean. A little dated but maintained. Owners are very friendly, pool is clean. Closes at 6pm though which is a downside. Overall a really great little motel in North Wildwood. One block from the beach and the tram car.

Beautiful pool. It was well taken care of. The owners were very nice people. They were always there to help you. It was close to the boardwalk But not so close that it would disturb your sleep.I would definitely recommend it

Stayed there three years ago,great place very wonderful people in office. Very nice and clean room with tv in each room. They even let us stay parked there after we checked out to go on the boards afterward in the morning. Great location not far from boardwalk,really can't say enough of how we really enjoyed ourselves there.

“Spend a little money on new bedding and towels, and get softer toilet paper! Raising your room rates just a little bit in order to accommodate those things will be WELL WORTH IT!”
