“Nice Stay at the Athens II”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

We have been going to The Wildwoods for about 20 years now and have stayed in many hotels along way, some are great but many are, simply put, horrible. Not sure why Athens II is listed as a B&B/Inn... must be the word "Inn"? Regardless, Athens II is a motel and like most in Wildwoods is on the older side.

This was not our first stay at Athens II, so we knew about it already and did not hesitate to look there again. The owners have upgraded quite a bit and continue to do so. It's nice to see pride in ownership in an older hotel. First and foremost, the location is amazing. It's a more quiet spot with a view of the beach, and with a simple cross of the street you are on it. There is a heated pool (lit up with color changing lights at night)that is kept up nicely and so warm that if the weather is breezy it doesn't matter. Outdoor foot rinse and shower available by the pool for after the beach. There is a huge new grill for use and sundeck too. There is an elevator and less expensive "breezeway" rooms without a view. Friendly owners, and free coffee in the office/lobby is a nice touch.

The rooms are slightly dated but clean and large. Dated I can live with- but clean is important! The rugs are newer and the fixtures in the bathroom have been updated. We saw some units had a flat screen TV, but ours did not. Also saw some new wooden tables being prepped for installation... like I said it's all about pride of ownership at these older hotels and there are only a handful in our opinion that have that so to find one is a gem. The beds were hard and noisy, every time we turned over they sounded like plastic, but they did look new. Fully stocked kitchen, clean and new refrigerator, but we did not use anything to speak of in the kitchen for our overnight stay.

Room Tip: Get one on the end for a spectacular view. Or go for the breezeway to save some money if a view isn...

Thank you so much for the amazingly wonderful experience at the Athens II Motor Inn. Beautiful facility, very clean, and spacious! Great customer service over the phone, upon arrival, and throughout our wonderful weekend stay!! The room was nice and cool upon our arrival, fresh towels brought daily (even without our request)! Nice touch! Lovely ladies at the welcoming office. Thank you so much again for a pleasant experience. Greg & Deb (Binghamton, NY)

Room Tip: All the rooms are awesome. The oceans right across the street. Beautiful boardwalk. Clean, clean...

directly across the street from the beach this place is great for families with young kids and families that want to be away from all the hustle and bustle of Wildwood.
while it is an older hotel it is absolutely very very clean and maintained very well with newer treatments, trust me not all of the other hotels are is clean as this one. if you are used to staying at a Hilton remember this is Wildwood and most of these hotels are owned by mom and pops.
here on 2nd Street you have your own little section of the beach away from it all watching the boats come in and out with everything to do you do not have to worry about college kids teenagers and rowdys.
be aware there are some night clubs that are about half a mile away so if you plan on sleeping with the windows open that may be a small concern, but no one will bother you in this little area.

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.
