We had a great time. It's right across from the beach and board walk. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was clean. And it has a great view from its upper level deck. We will be coming back next year and many years to come.

Stayed here based on reviews found on tripadvisor. Upon check in, office was in total disarray. Filthy with flies everywhere. The room was atrocious. The beds and furniture must be as old as the hotel. The kitchen was disgusting. Dirty/outdated is an understatement for the condition of the room. The air conditioner was 6 inches from the side of the... More

Place is very old and not maintained! Noisy! Forget about room service! Unless you like a dirty looking guy making your bed! Will never go there again! Only good part is the pool. Owner was friendly I guess he's trying to make up for this old dirty place. My opinion? It should be leveled and start fresh. I guess Wildwood... More

This motel is one of the best in wildwood. The rooms are very very clean and are always kept up to shape. The large kitchen and clean bathroom makes the stay feel very at home. We come every year and every time we come is better than the last. Very nice and clean. The outdoor balcony with an ocean view... More

The hotel was clean although some mold in bathroom due to lack of fan. Room is extremely small. The bathroom was clean but very small. Room was an efficiency but the... More

The rating of this hotel on TripAdvisor has forced me to reconsider TripAdvisor ratings. Positives: Raf, the owner, is extremely affable, very welcoming. His generosity of spirit is wonderful. The location is great. Basically on the beach and the southern end of the boardwalk. Close enough to the piers to be walkable, far enough to be quiet. Negatives: The room... More

I stayed and had a fantastic time. It is a great place for families. The staff is super nice, as is the owner. I cannot remember having a more pleasant time somewhere else. Thank you to all of them. We will be back soon.

Owner is very friendly and pool is nice but other than that I will not stay again. Tv in room didn't work, blinds are broken, toilet doesn't flush right, A/C sucks, our bed wasn't even made with the right sheets and we have a sheet hanging in one of our windows. But don't worry you have a toaster in your... More

Loved this motel! Raf the owner was very accommodating and hospitable. He made sure all his guest had cold fresh water every day all day. The weather was super hot about 100 degrees so the water sure was great to have. We were able to use the pool late at night and the environment is very friendly. The beach is... More
