The location is perfect - one block from the beach, 2 blocks from every bar and many blocks from the pier. If you have kids, this will save you a great deal of money! Great swimming pools! and very relaxing. The rooms are a little outdated but really roomy. We had to switch rooms because we were having so much fun we wanted to stay another night. Our first room smelled like stale smoke. Not overwhelming but there. The second room smelled grea and super clean so perhaps the first room just had someone that smoked in it previous to our arrival.

Room Tip: try to stay in an odd number room...better pool.

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. We are glad to hear that you were having such a good time you decided to stay an extra night. As a family owned seasonal business we try our best to keep our room updated as possible. Also, we do have a non smoking policy in all of our rooms. If your first room smelled like smoke we apologize. Also, we like to be informed immediately if something is not to your satisfaction.

For our family trip this summer we decided to stay at the Harbor Light and couldn't be happier with our decision. The hotel was beautiful and the reception personnel were very helpful and accommodating. Not only were the rooms spacious and extremely clean but the hotel also has an elevator so I did not have to make several trips with our luggage and beach toys. The hotel also has two pools (a kids dream) with plenty of room to spread out and relax. The hotel is conveniently located a block from the beach and many restaurants. My family and I had a great vacation and I would like to thank the Harbor Light for their wonderful hospitality. We look forward to our visit next summer.

My family and I have been going there for over 15 years now. The staff is wonderful, the motel is very clean and well maintained. If you have any problems with appliances or anything the problem is addressed immediately. An extremely nice family-owned motel and I couldn't say enough good things about it. Check it out folks!!!! I guarantee you won't be disappointed!!!!

Room Tip: Type B rooms are very comfortable.

I would not call this hotel a resort by any means....We recently stayed for five nights during one of their specials. The room was a Type 2 which included a kitchen, bedroom with two double beds, bathroom and a nice sitting area. Ceiling fan in the sitting area is definitely needed as there is only an air conditioner in the bedroom so on the hot days, it got a little uncomfortable but manageable. Although offered, central air was an extra fee....if I knew only one air in the unit, I would have paid the additional $5 per night. Was not explained to me at the time of reservation. Pleasantly surprised to find two tvs. One in sitting area and another in the bedroom. The unit was clean and the staff were super nice! The guests were all family oriented and friendly as well. Great distance to the beach and had two pools and three gas grills which was great! Smoking not permitted in the rooms which was great but was allowed outside which was great for a smoker like myself. Overall, I will definitely go there again and plan to do so in a few weeks for another special that they are running. Great for the money!!! Just get central air!!!

Room Tip: Rooms with odd numbers have bigger pool and nicer views as well as two of the three gas grills. Pay...

My family loves Wildwood. The main complaint we have Is finding a clean place to stay. We found it. We tried Harbor Light through Groupon and we are so glad we did. What a nice family place to stay. We will be return customers.

We stayed here from July 2nd to July 7th and can't say enough good things about it. We were in the area visiting family who had a house there. From check in to check out, everyone we encountered was very helpful and friendly. The facility was very clean--the staff are always cleaning up around the area. The owners and family can be seen around all the time. We had a Type 4 for ourselves & our daughter & her family. The rooms were very quiet and you couldn't even hear noises from outside. Kitchen was well stocked. Suggestion we would make are more hooks in the rooms for wet towels and clothing. If we had to find something negative, it would be the ice machine was out of order during our entire stay.
This is 1 block from the beach--very quiet from street noise. Beds were very comfortable. Walking distance to all activities. We will not hesitate staying here again. A big thank you to Heather & staff. BTW--great place for pizza was Macks--on the Boardwalk. Delivered hot right to the room. Delicious pizza. Thank you from the front desk for the recommendation.

We are so happy that you had a great time at the Harbor Light . Hopefully you and your family will visit us again next summer. We do apologize for the ice machine not working during your stay. We had to order a part that took a few days to come in. It has since been fixed. Thank you once again.
