I stayed here with a busload of travelers. If you want to reminisce about the 60's this is your place. Bathroom was very outdated, as was the room, although we DID have a tv and frig. I am accustomed to more modern places.Room sizes vary. We had a smaller room with only beds. Friends had a suite with a sofa,... More

We have been coming here since the Eden Roc went down hill and it has been great every year. Great staff, they make you feel at home. It is very close to the beach and the front desk recommends great places to eat.

I love the classic Wildwood motels. This is one of my favorites and the first one I stayed in many years ago. As with all motels in the area, constant maintenance and cleanliness is key to a nice stay. Love the property and recommend it

For the price of this motel, you could get a much nicer room in a motel on the beach. The room was musty smelling and garrish. Every time this hotel appears in a newspaper article due to it's unique and photogenic Caribbean sign, the price of a room rises. Been there, done it, never again. Next time , for what... More

Wow, so it looks like I am the first reviewer of 2016. Let me start things off on a positive note: if you come to Wildwood, you need to stay at the Caribbean. No other hotel captures the 50s spirit of this historic district quite like it; sitting outside your room in the evening, drinking a glass of wine, overlooking... More
