This is a second review from our previous stay. We returned later in 2015, and summer of 2016 and LOVED it. We had a room further away from the deck above the pool and it was perfect. No issues with second hand smoke. The staff is amazing. We love having our own private balcony and that the entrance to the...

We stayed from 9/30/16 to 10/2/16. The room was perfect, clean bright and well cared for. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Even though it brained we were able to get to the boardwalk and play some of the games in the arcade and my granddaughter was able to get on some ride. We have been coming to The...

We stayed in a two-room suite on a rainy, cold Oct. weekend. We asked for a quiet room on as high a floor as possible when we booked. We were assigned a third-floor, two-double-bed suite right above the outdoor/indoor game room and pool. PROS: The view to the ocean was gorgeous, with the balcony off the living room facing right...

We are sorry you did not like your stay with us this past weekend. We do understand that it did rain all weekend, so there wasn't as much to do around town on your vacation. Being right on the beach is hard with the salt air and the wet weather, but we try to keep up with moisture in the...

First visit to t the Water's Edge Ocean Resort. Won't be our last. Can't beat the location in terms of oceanfront rooms right on the beach. Our room was located on the 3rd floor with a view of the sundeck and of course, a gorgeous view of the ocean -- magnificent sunrises. Luckily, we had great beach weather for our...

Have stayed at hotel twice now and have no problems. Clean, comfortable rooms. Located on the beach. Heated pool and sundeck are nice. Located right off the boardwalk. Full size fridge, microwave, table and chairs, balcony, and a separate bedroom and living room make the room comfortable.

I can't say enough as to our stay at the Water's Edge Motel. The staff and the owners were wonderful. The location was perfect. It was quiet, yet if you wanted more entertainment the boardwalk was only a block away. The pool was sparkling clean and so was the rest of the property. I would highly recommend.

This was a wonderful hotel in wildwood crest. Close to the boardwalk and beach. Friendly staff, clean and beautiful. It was bike week so there was tons of motorcycles but it was still fairly quiet. The rooms block out the outdoor noise nicely. Pool was clean and comfortable.

From the moment we arrived the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very nice, we had a type C, and although I have stayed at a lot of hotels in WIldwood, Water's Edge Ocean Resort is now my new favorite. The room was very clean, the staff was superb, wonderful place to stay. Highly recommend!!!!!
