Very clean. Expensive area. All mom and pop hotels and restaurants. Great location on broad walk and beach. No elevator. Second floor deck that's very nice. New pool and deck chairs. Clean pool. Shampoo not included. Check out is 10:00 which is much earlier than what I am accustomed too.

We do appreciate your nice words, except most of our guests do rate us 5 stars...The only thing appears to be that we do not have an elevator, well most resort properties in North Wildwood don't as well...next time book on the 1st floor..

I have stayed at the Sahara several time since the current ownership took over. I love the charm of the old style Motel on the Island which are quickly disappearing. The staff are the nicest and most helpful of any place I've stayed.They have done a great job maintaining the property and facilities. You can't find a better bargain beach... More

At first, I loved this place, but things quickly deteriorated. I could deal with no A/C or refrigerator for more than 24 hours because of the tornado that touched down (still.. thought the owners might offer a concession to guests). I could handle no shampoo or conditioner... no little plastic cup to use while brushing the teeth and no supplies... More

In ref to your review,,,The AC and Refrigerator was only off when in fact the Island was hit with a Small Tornado causing Power OUTAGES....This was an act of GOD and out of our control...and it was for a few hours until power was restored, not 24 hours as stated...There is Conditioner and Shampoo available, You should be aware of...

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Sahara motel. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, the pool water was like a bath tub. The view we had was amazing. The staff is great, very helpful. I can't wait to go back, very relaxing. Thank you for a great stay!
