Upon arriving the hotel owner was not even there for us to check in. They arrived about an hour after we got there and then we finally checked in. The room was alright but we found small black bugs everywhere in the room (even in the beds) we were not sure what kind of bugs they were. On the plus...

We just got back from our stay and we had no real complaints. The hotel was bug free, had a great location and amenities for the family, It was a bit outdated and the room could have been a bit cleaner (we found a couple of candy wrappers and ketchup packets behind the side table and the sofa). The layout...

Booked an Ocean View suite and upon getting to our room discovered our "ocean" view was a view of the stair well. Checked the back window to see the wall of the next hotel. Lovely.

I recently stayed at the Cara Mara again. I was here a few years ago. I noticed a lot of improvements since I was here last. Last time I stayed in Room 301. I had a good experience. I tried to get the same room but it was booked. I understand that the rooms are individually owned. So I asked...

We went to Wildwood with family for a tournament. The hotel room had a horrible odor. The couch was dingy and dirty looking. The rug was dirty and dark. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable, the bed had hair in it from previous customers. The blanket had stains and was dingy and when we asked for a new blanket they...

If you are a fan of the 50-60's in Wildwood you will enjoy the Cara Mara Resort. Haven't stayed in Wildwood overnight for about 30+ years when a trip came up last minute with family. The rooms were very nice, clean and the feel that I remember from years ago at the shore. Location was good, just off the beach...
