What more can I say about this wonderful place. Went down there again for the Boots on the Beach weekend and had an awesome stay. Pam and Penny made our stay great. My wife and I brought down 3 other couple and they loved the place. Everything is nice and clean. They have coffee every morning for you and they... More

The motel is a trip back in time to the Doo Wop days of its over all design. The motel appears to have been recently renovated but preserves the color scheme and feeling of the old Wildwood days. The rooms were very clean and large. They included a refrigerator, microwave, large screen TV, hotplate and sink. The bathrooms were older,... More

One of the things that makes Wildwood such a great place to stay are the number of wonderfully maintained mid-century motels along the shore. Thankfully, the Dolphin Inn fits right at the top of that category. The property is extremely well cared for by a friendly couple who couldn't be more helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable, while still... More

We absolutely love the Dolphin Inn. Have been going for the last 4 years and visit at least 2 times a year. You can't beat the service. Pam at the front desk is so kind. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are placed in the best room to suit your needs. Always has a plethora of information... More

A very reasonable price for a basic hotel. CLEAN. VERY COMFORTABLE BED. Super location. Walk to the beach, the Acme, Wawa, the boardwalk and the wharf. This hotel has an interesting history and a wonderful new owner, who is lovingly working to restore and maintain it.

The staff at the hotel was super friendly. Everything was clean and you could actively see them cleaning each room every day (not just making the bed-- bathrooms and floors were cleaned daily). Room came with a near full-size fridge and a microwave plus plenty of space for beach stuff, hanging clothes, etc. There are plenty of outdated, run-down, borderline... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in August 2016 and were very pleased with the hotel. Pat who greeted us and checked us in was very friendly and informative. We had a parking space right at the hotel.

We stayed at the Dolphin for 4 nights in August 2016. We have been to Wildwood many times and paid more money for less. We were expecting less for the price we paid and got more. I definitely recommend the Dolphin Inn. The hotel is small but very clean and well kept. The sister owners could not have been nicer.... More

Literally a block from the beach! The location was perfect for our 'first family vacation' with our one year old since your not right in the heart of WWs boardwalk but was still walking distance. The room was really clean and the pool was perfect! Had no problems at all during our week stay. Definitely would stay again!
