This is my 5th time staying at this hotel and everytime was amazing. They have a great staff and its all family-orientated and actually caring about guests needs. Instead of the typical rehearsed apology they actually emphasize. This hotel is also located well within the wildwood line while still being in the crest. We stayed in rooms 551 and 525...

All I can say is that this motel does not disappoint! Very family-oriented and friendly. We recently returned from a two night stay and wished we could have stayed longer but a little thing called work got in the way plus they had no vacancy. This place is clean beyond belief, they never stopped from the time we got there...

Wow. I was traveling with my 72 year old mom, my hubby and my 8 year old girl and this hotel just made our vacation. The customer service was immaculate, we had an oversized vehicle and the owners went out of their way to make sure we had parking. The rooms are beautiful and soooo clean. My daughter loved their...

We have been enjoying a week or two every year with the Salernos and the Johnsons. They are phenominal hosts. While we pay for our room we really feel more like guests in their home. My wife, daughter and usually one of her friends arrived almost two weeks ago to hugs from Jimmy, Jackie, Ann and Joe.... and Pauline and...

Third time staying at the Imperial 500. Again, excellent stay. Stayed in an efficiency suite again (one bedroom, kitchenette, living room). Super clean. Pool is never over crowded. Another great thing is the location in the crest. Across the street from a park and the beach. Saturday nights they have concerts in the park, excellent and fun for the kids....

After a great stay during the Kenny Chesney concert last year I decided to book a room this Summer for my girlfriend and I during our annual Wildwood vacation. There are a lot of things going for this hotel. The rates are very reasonable and you get a lot more "bang for your buck" then you do at many other...

I have been coming to the Imperial 500 since I was a kid. It is always a great time to relax and enjoy time with my family. For the past 10+ years, I have always been impressed with how caring Joe, Ann, Jimmy and Jackie are! They always go above and beyond for us each year. My husband and I...

10 years ago, my family and over 15 other individuals/families in our group booked our Wildwood vacation at the Imperial 500, and we can't say enough good things about the facility and owners. Each year, we arrive, settle in, see other friends/acquaintences that we've met over the years, and feel like we never left from the previous year. This is...

Have been coming to the Imperial 500 for 20+ years. We come several times a season.....sometimes with family....friends...or alone. It is one of our favorite places to be! While some people have mentioned some of the "rules" as being "ridiculous"....they are what keeps it nice for all the guests. If you travel alot, you have probably seen alot of people...
