The hotel management fails to show up on time every morning, it is especially important due to the fact they have piggy back parking. They left contact information but failed to answer the phone. When they finally answered it was usually with an attitude. The office does not open until 830 (providing management was on time even tho they live...

Yes the location was great, but the customer service is terrible. There are a ton of hotels near the boardwalk. Not worth the stay. I would never recommend this motel to anyone. It's unsanitary as well. Overall, just a poorly run motel.

The only acceptable part of this motel is its location to the boardwalk. Past that, it is a terrible establishment run by truly mean spirited people. It was also overpriced and crammed to stay in. They just do whatever they want to people once they have your money.

I stayed here recently during family vacation. I've been coming to Wildwood for many years. This hotel is in need of serious renovations. It looks like it's been 20 years since anything was updated. It is close to the beach, that's all it really has going for it. Overall I was not happy with my stay and will find different...

I stayed on a whim. I had a 3rd floor room 12. It had 2 double beds. It was clean enough to sleep in and shower. The Air condition was great it was humid so it was on hydro blast. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only complaint I had was that other guests were letting their children run up and...

Rooms were clean and tidy. The staff was friendly and accommodating. And the best part...the beach was just seconds away. A great value and a memorable experience, this motel did not disappoint. I particularly enjoyed sitting outside my room on the provided lounge chairs, watching the ocean from just a short distance. I would recommend the Dawn and Nova Motel...

Awesome Location near the boardwalk and conference center. New furniture - felt like home! It was the best deal we could find that close to the beach. Staff was pleasant and the rooms were nice. Great start to the summer for us.

Room are in very poor condition. The first room given to me smelled extremely musty outdated and plain downright dirty. I went to turn in for the night, pulled back the blanket and sheets to discover a horrific sight of stains which consisted of blood and body fluids. I would like to add that the day before I arrived was...

Booked 2 rooms next to each other (6&7) - had to move from room (7) to room 8 as the keys didn't work. Room 8, the outlets were all wore out and none of them worked except the outlet near the top of the door (what a great way to blow dry your hair). Ants appeared overnight (Fri-Sat) all over...

“If you don't like steps, you don't want a 3rd floor, but if you don't like people above you the 3rd floor is good and the view is great to the boardwalk and ocean. bring your own blow dryer.”

“If you're going with a small group, (no more than 3) and dont mind beach noise, REQUEST ROOM 2! It's a kitchenette with a king bed and a sofa bed. It is the corner room on Ocean and being on the second floor has a great extended sun deck. GREAT for people watching.”
