“Great vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Our recent stay at the Sahara was very enjoyable. We love the recent improvements in the rooms, especially the new sliding doors and windows. The swimming pool is completely done over, as well as the deck, with new comfortable chaises. The location can't be beat - just steps from the Boardwalk and beach. Thank you to the staff for being courteous, friendly and very helpful. We hope to see you again next summer!

Just returned from a perfect vacation. The motel rooms look great since the renovations. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Reservations were made for next year. There is just no better motel in all of Wildwood and North Wildwood. The view of the ocean from the third floor is spectacular. We cannot wait until next year......

We've been staying here for many years and the new owners are great. Many improvements to the rooms, beautiful new pool and very accommodating staff made for a very nice vacation. My family and friends come here every year and are already looking forward to next year.

We have been staying at the sahara for many years. The new owners are really making some wonderful improvements! The new pool with water fall is beautiful. The new flooring in the rooms and second floor deck are great. The new 3rd floor sliders are my favorite upgrade. The owners and staff are very accommodating and friendly. The sahara is right on the boardwalk and just steps from the beach. Our four children love it here and we will definitely be returning next summer.

Renovations are all very nice. Rooms look great, pool looks nice too. love the little waterfall. New Sundeck and chairs are really nice! The room I was in was quiet and off to the side on the 2nd floor and I loved it. Comfy bed, AC worked well, so did fridge. Very clean, and everyone is very friendly and helpful. We come here every year and are pleased with the new owners and the improvements they have made. Will definitely be coming back next year. Recommend to all. Very pleased. Its all beautiful.

Room Tip: comfy beds. ac works. 2nd and 3rd floor have better views.

Stayed in two different room styles here due to one being bookedwhen we arrived. I am in love with this effenciency room with a king bed. I was expecting it to be in a corner and tiny. It is in the breezeway but you can see everything right out the door. It just isnt on the edge of the balcony which i love becuz I get scared of heights. We r on third floor. Ac works great and wifi. Bathroom is small but enough room for one adult. Full size fridge is awesome. The pool was clean and so was the room. The maid cleaned this room very, very well even the tile floor. The ocean is right here and boardwalk begin steps away. I have stayed at over 20hotels in the area and this one is the best. The pool is a little small and goes up to5feet but it is perfect for me. Even though motel was sold out the pool wasnt over crowded at all.
