This is a no-frills, budget-friendly motel. Great location close to beach/boardwalk/public restrooms. The owners Al, Mark, and Bonnie (and their kids) could not have been nicer -- all were friendly, gracious, and helpful. We stayed in a basic room with 2 double beds. Room was clean, spacious, and had a lot of light due to windows in the front and... More

A no frills, dated, older motel, that's steps away from the end of the boardwalk. There is a pool that sees lots of use by the kids, no breakfast, no free ice, but they do offer use of a grill. Parking behind building. Seemed fairly quiet at night time. Budget friendly compared to others in area.

A good inexpensive place to stay that's within walking distance of the beach without crossing any streets The staff is very friendly, units are a little dated, but very clean has swimming pool that open during the day. Pretty quiet area at night.

We stayed here the end of August. If your're on a budget it's an excellent place to stay. Close to boards and beach. Housekeeping could step it up a notch. Room it's self was clean,but the bathroom could of used a bit more attention. Owner pleasant.

The Surf Motel in North Wildwood is a great place to stay. It is close to so much. Less than a block from the boardwalk near Gateway, Morey's Pier, Captain Jacks, Johnson's popcorn and the beach. It has a nice pool, grills and a deck to eat on. The rooms are clean and very unique. Some rooms are two floors... More

It was a refreshing difference to have the sleeping area away from the living area. It is so close to the Boardwalk. The manager was great with suggestions on great places to eat. Easy to find other area attractions close by.

I am disappointed not only with the motel, but that I need to write a less-than-stellar review of this place. When an acquaintance talked up the "mid-week special" they had at the motel, I rented a room for 4 nights. When we got to the place, I apologized profusely to my family. I'll try to be specific.
