I love the Lotus Inn!! The location is great. The hotel is very clean. I love the pool and the sundeck. We go every year for our shore vacation. My parents really like the continental breakfast which is served every morning for free. Also, free hotdog lunch on Thursdays!

In a seasonal resort town like Wildwood, I know finding a nice hotel is hard. Lotus Inn is the exception. Though it's a little more expensive than other hotels (we paid $215 per night (before taxes) in late June for a room with "central air", 2 rooms, a queen bed, a double bed, and a sofa bed), we found it to be well worth it. They seem to work hard to maintain cleanliness and comfort. The pool was recently (within last few years) redone. It seemed small but rarely seemed overcrowded. I know some reviews noted the rules, but we didn't find them burdensome, and saw them as attempts to keep the place clean and family friendly. Complimentary breakfast was great, but if you snooze you lose. Bagels were some of the best I ever had and they had cinnamon raisin, plain, blueberry, and sesame. They had a few different kinds of delicious fresh donuts, breads, a few kinds of cold and hot cereal, decaf and regular coffee, cream cheese, butter, jelly, and orange juice. They serve from 7 to 9. We noticed that the options dwindled in the 2nd hour. They had cardboard trays to take your breakfast back to the room. The hotel is a full block off the beach, and across the street from a large public "park" (large lawn, playground, gazebo). Wifi was spotty. Everything around the property seemed clean and well cared for. Parking was sufficient. As one of the taller hotels in the area (7 floors), the views were great!

This is our second year staying at the Lotus Inn. The location is great, right across from the beach, and many family friendly activities and restaurants. Rooms are kept very clean, and the staff is very attentive and friendly, which certainly is a big plus when you want to avoid hassles on vacation. We'll be back for sure.

First time to Wildwood Crest. Our stay was wonderful. Could not have asked for anything more. Free breakfast, which was very nice a couple of our days. The heated pool was nice when we got tired of the sand. It was nice you could rent umbrellas and chairs right there.
