We ended up at Wildwood, not knowing where we were going to stay or even if we were going to like the area. I was working till the last minute and gave my friend the task to find the area, motel/hotel to stay at...
she didn't do any research so we ended up here at 10pm after having traveled down in a car from Montreal.
Well, I can't imagine finding a better place to lay down our bagage and put on our flip-flops and head to the shops/restos/rides/beach/etc/etc....
Other than the price for the stay (which we understand is during the last 2 weeks of July) which was $1080 for 7 nights...so $154/night holy fudge! (which by the way is all over the boardwalk (the fudge))
This motel is at a GREAT LOCATION: 1 minute from the boardwalk (which is really AMAZING coming on it at around 10pm with the thousands of people walking around, the "watch the tram car please", and all the sweet spots to PIG OUT, play, buy, shop, or just go to the beach (which btw is CLOSED from 10pm until early morning...but IT'S FREE!))
This motel is runned by a father & son power duo Alan & Mark which were the nicest, most helpful duo I've ever met.
Our room (#12) was on the 2nd storey of a 3 storey building, right on the corner of E 25th Ave. with a view on the corner with all the pretty tanned blond girls walking to and from the boardwalk...great way to start and end your day.
The room was fitted with a microwave, TV, phone, little fridge, A.C., nice shower (well, I actually needed to snap the "low-flow" out of the shower head, then it became a GREAT SHOWER!)
the furniture is old, but if you are into NEW stuff, you might like to look up "Wildwood Crest" hotels.
We had the corner balcony area with 2 chairs, checking out the sexy ladies walking to the beach.
They have a nice little pool (which we never used) and free parking right near our room.
I've gotta say that Wildwood is a VERY FAMILY area, VERY SECURE, LOTS of POLICE presence on the streets and boardwalk.
The motel is a corner away from a little resto called "Munchies" which is opened 24h/day (with good CHEESE STEAKS!!!).
Also another corner away (on Atlantic and 25th) is "Jimbo's" a great breakfast place.
Obviously when leaving the motel, the wonderful Russian maids come and make your room (which is a good thing!) btw... there are LOTS of BEAUTIFUL slavic women (girls) working EVERYWHERE in Wildwood, it's alot to take in... bring some good sunglasses.
Overall, this motel is one amongst 100's around in Wildwood, the prices vary a little from place to place, but the friendlyness & openess of Alan and his son Mark is worth it.
I would probably come back when I have my own children.
