Me and my family were looking for a different place to stay. Because Our last motel was horrible. We walked over to the Astronaut my first impression the parking lot was clean. Then the office was Well keep and clean. That was great. "You have one time to make a first impression " as what my boss always tells me....

Right on the beach!!!Just sharing one of the hidden gems left in Wildwood Crest. Alot of "mom and pop" places have been torn down and huge condos have risen in their place, sad, so sad...... BUT the "Astronaut", still survives with ED taking care of almost everything you need. Not a big place, but that is it's charm. So not...

This motel is a wonderful place to stay. We enjoy coming back year after year for a wonderful and relaxing vacation. Between the beach, pools, and the beautiful scenery there's no other place we'd rather be.

I've been vacationing in Wildwood Crest, NJ every year for the past 28 years, staying at The Astronaut. There is not a summer that I will miss and so far I haven't in my lifetime. It is a family tradition that I will continue for as long as I can. The motel is kept clean. The staff are very friendly....

Stayed here for a convention/vacation event. Room was cozy, very clean, had an efficiency kitchen that met our needs, a very nice pool, nice view of the ocean located right on the beach and quiet enough at night for restful sleep. Parking is a little tight but not impossible. We are very pleased and will be back again.

We have been staying here for the past 6 years. Ed is wonderful. Always accomodating and friendly. We love being right on the beach. The rooms are very clean and modern. Area is quiet and guests are very friendly. Close enough to the action of the boardwalk but far enough away to enjoy quiet, relaxing evenings. We plan on returning...

I am 24 and have been there every year since I was born. My parents have been going there long before I was born as well. We've never had a problem. Ed is excellent and always accommodates any needs we have. The third floor rooms are beautiful and modern!! We love them. The cleaning service is always excellent as well....
