Athens II Motor Inn
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We have stayed at Athens II twice now. It's on the older side, but is clean and well maintained. The location is great- directly across the street from the beach. It's away from the noise and hustle and bustle of Wildwood, but the boardwalk is an easy, short drive. The office staff people are very friendly, helpful , and accomodating. We enjoyed our stay, even though it was too early in the season to swim in the ocean. Some people were in the heated outdoor pool. We wouldn't hesitate to return to Athens II. .

Room Tip: Oceanfront efficiencies are great for families.

We stayed at the Athens 2 on Easter weekend 2014. The room was old and dirty. They charged us the standard summer rate but without any of the summer amenities,(no pool, no out side furnature, no bed and breakfast.) You have to check out at an early 10:00AM but the office wasn't open till 10:15. I was told they have no staff on duty from 9:00PM till 10:00AM in the spring.
We could have stayed at a deluxe Atlantic City Hotel for $15.00 LESS. This place needs a compete remodel and cleaning.

Room Tip: Look a little farther south in Wildwood Crest or Cape May onle a few miles away but a thousand times...

In response to the customers that stayed with us for Easter weekend, rotten egg for Easter post.
I am truly sorry that you did not enjoy your one night stay on Easter weekend.

While we appreciate feed back from our guests, we also appreciate accuracy as well, and the opportunity to respond to your concerns in person, (at the time of your stay) to enable us to address any concerns.

In response to the pool not being opened that time of the year, the temperatures for that weekend were mid to upper 50s, and we normally do not have the pool open at that time. Hence, the reason for OFF season rates (that you were charged) vs the standard summer rates, for your 1 night stay during Easter Weekend.

Note, we do not offer, nor do we serve breakfast with our accommodations, as we are not a Bed and Breakfast, however our office hours are posted and observed, our office door was opened prior to 9am, coffee and donuts were ready and available for our guests.

We take pride in the cleanliness of our rooms, as well as them being well maintained and sure would have certainly appreciated the opportunity to address your concerns with us immediately.

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)

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.
