I have been going to North Wildwood for fifty years. That being said, the Harbor Light has been the best Hotel on the Island. I have tried other hotels but for the past twenty five years, they are the best. One block from the beach, heated pool, rooms are very clean, elevator, quiet at night, and a very accommodating staff....

Been staying here many years always in the same room. Last year I spent my first week in that room and was relocated for the second week next door. This year when I show up I am placed in the room next door?? Although I am pretty sure I booked in my normal spot. The maid service was atrocious. They...

We spent 3 nights at Harbor Light in August. Check in was a breeze; there is an elevator with luggage carts located in the middle of the hotel which is a huge plus. Each rental has 2 chairs for outside seating and there is a communal bbq. We had a 2 bedroom corner efficiency. One bedroom had 2 double beds;...

I was at the hotel for the Labor Day weekend. I had stayed here 10 yrs ago and it was acceptable so thought I would try it again. I was traveling with my teenage daughter and 3 of her friends. The "family resort" idea was important for that reason. The room was so-so, dated, and lacking adequate pillows and linens....

Hello, You have previously discussed this matter with our Office Manager, Heather. Here was her response. You then responded to her but clearly did not like what she had to say and therefore made a threat of publishing a review online. May I please note that we do not respond to threats of published reviews in exchange for refunds. We...

The resort has wheelchair accessibility, elevator and security cameras. You feel so safe and the resort appears to be newly remodeled. It is beautify. It has two pools, on the odd side the pool is up to 8ft for those who can really swim, and on the even side the pool goes up to 5 feet, really good for beginners....

Great location! My daughter, husband, and I just came back from a 5-night stay. The room was adequate for our needs. We did stay in a breezeway area (I was told that when I booked). Next time we would want to have a pool view. The place is well maintained. Always a maintenance member on site. I read another review...

We chose this motel in North Wildwood to be close to the beach and within walking distance of the boardwalk. We were allowed an early check-in upon arrival per a prior request, which was appreciated due to the extreme heat of the day. Families congregated around the pool most of the time, so we did not take advantage of using...

First, let me thank you for writing a review. Second, let me address your neighbors. We are sorry that they encroached on your space and were smoking in front of the room. We have designated smoking areas and directly in front of the room is NOT one of them. I am so sorry that the you had some issues in...

The room was nice enough, clean and decent size. The pools were great. The staff was friendly and helpful. The AC in our room could have been a bit more powerful as the front room was pretty warm, but it was the hottest weekend of the summer so I guess it can't really be helped all that much. We reserved...

Hi Jayme, Thank you so much for your review. You are absolutely correct that the breezeway doesn't have the best view and you need to book in advance for a view. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again.

What a nice place to stay. Staff was very friendly. Rooms were nice but airflow from bedroom to living could be improved so the cold air would go there also. Wifi was down so my grandson was not happy about that. The hotel offers a changing room if u get there early so u can go to beach...they text u...
