“Great beach motel”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Let me preface this be saying that this is not the place for someone looking for beautifully decorated rooms.
The Athens II is for someone looking for a clean, friendly place, directly across the street from a beautiful, but not overcrowded, beach. Their efficiencies are huge and comfortable. The kitchens have everything you need to feed a vacationing family, except the food.
Their prices are kind of insanely low.
The staff is VERY helpful, and friendly. If you need it, they either have it or will find it for you.
The atmosphere is such that you just kind of naturally interact with the other guests.
My only complaint is that their pool closes at 7:00 pm. It's heated and lit beautifully and would be perfect for late night swims!

First of all remember that you are in Wildwood, NJ so there are no five star hotels and these places are motor inns and motels. With that being said this motor inn is clean, quiet and friendly. Our rooms have been clean and the housekeeping staff very attentive. The owners are very nice people and you are surrounded by a family atmosphere, At night it is so very quiet. The rooms may be outdated but which place down there isn't. They are making improvements every year. We have stayed in rooms that have a flat screen and another that had an older tv and the wifi is weak but, SO WHAT? Go outside and enjoy the view of the ocean.

We have been coming to N. Wildwood for a few years and this was our first time staying at Athens II. First of all you can't beat the location and the rates. Secondly this was probably the quietest room that we have ever stayed in! The beds could be more comfortable for our taste, but this is the case with any hotel/motel. The single A/C unit does provide a little challenge to keeping the whole unit cool, but was not impossible.
After looking at the other reviews I would certainly take exception to the negative comments regarding the owners and/or the staff. While we were there, we definitely felt like one of the summer family! Everyone was very friendly and accommodating, even allowing us to take a look at some of the other unoccupied rooms (different styles that are available) so we had an idea for the future, and the cleaning staff was especially FANTASTIC! They were also very attentive to our comments and questions. The pool was indeed heated, and was very well kept and immaculate. The rooms are very clean. We did have a flat screen TV in our room, but honestly we come to the beach to unplug and enjoy our family and the beach; not to zone out in front of the television/laptop/etc...
Overall we love coming to N. Wildwood, traveling from a beach state, through another beach state in order to go there. It is a very nice, working family friendly town with phenomenal down to earth real people and fantastic beaches which is becoming like a second home to us. The Athens II is a reflection of everything we love about the Wildwoods, and we are very certainly looking forward to going in 2014!

We found the Athens II when we went to Wildwood for a spur on the moment weekend getaway and were shut out of all other hotels due to an Elks Lodge parade and extravaganza taking place the weekend we went. We were really lucky to find this awesome hotel in North Wildwood. Across the street is a the beautiful beach, and it's in a safe comfortable area away from the grittiness of the Boardwalk. Our room was fantastic. We would definately stay here again next time we go to Wildwood.

My family and I visit wildwood every year for vacation. Let me start off by saying that the only thing good about this place is the location. The owners are terrible to there guest. They need to take a course on hospitality. The pool is not heated. Wifi,don't bother asking because it doesn't work thru concrete. They advertise TVs in all rooms. My room only has 1 and that tv still has VHS built into it. So take a guess how old that tv is. The towels smell like someone smoked while they folded them. The couch feels like your sitting on sandpaper. The furniture is out dated. My toilett is broken and my shower knobs are coming off the wall. If I didn't run out of space I would write more. Take my advice. Find another location to take your family.

Although the location is great - quick access to beach -- The air conditioner did not cool the room during the day - air temp was 86 and did not improve until the sun set - rooms are very outdated and not well kept -- also got stuck in the elevator - owner and manager seemed very unconcerned with these issues despite the fact that my mother is 84 years old with heart condition and did not do well with the room this warm -- in fact had to check out 2 days early to take her home - owners attitude was "oh well"

This is the second year we have made a short trip to North Wildwood and stayed at the Athens II. We really like the location directly across from the 2nd street beach in North Wildwood. Wildwood is known for very wide beaches and we prefer to have a smaller beach with easy access back to the room. This place fits the bill perfectly. Since is the beginning of the inlet to the bay, it has smaller waves then being directly ocean front. I think it is a great location for families with smaller children for that reason. Yes, there are lifeguards at this beach. Sometimes, in the late afternoon, tidal pools form and this is great for the kids as well. If you have older kids who like big waves, this may not be the best beach for them. Since the motel faces north, the pool is partially shaded in the afternoon which can be nice if you want to be out of the sun, or disappointing if it is a little chilly. All depends on when you are there. We had an interior room this trip because of the last minute decision to go the day before. The interior room does not give a view, per say, and that was the only disappointment. Sitting at the table to eat and enjoying the view is a nice advantage. We had a room with a view last year, but not this year. The room was clean and had all we needed for a quick 2 day stay. Including dishwashing soap and towels to clean our dishes. My only thoughts on the room was the uncomfortable fabric on the pull-out sofa. It is very scratchy to me and we needed to put either a towel or blanket on it to sit. Another note, there is an air conditioner in the bedroom but not in the living room so keep that in mind if you have someone sleeping there that they may not get the cool air. The beds were comfortable enough for 2 nights. Final note: I wish that all places at the beach were required to have hand held showers so that you can get the sand from all locations if you know what I mean.
