“very disappointed and did not meet expectations from reading others reviews.”
Reviewed 17 July 2010

The staff were pleasant, but not helpful enough. When I reported that the washing machine destroyed my white wash ruined with rust, reply was probably it is not used a lot, and the other staff had no response. It was a nightmare because I tried to wash at a local laundry mat to get the stains out, washing through three times and still not good enough. When i returned to get laundry from dryer clothes were missing. UNBELIEVABLE. In the bathroom, the toilet seat kept coming off and shower rod was rusted. Fan was dirty as well as curtains on bedroom window. The airconditioner was so loud that u couldn't hear the tv. sheets were not changed at all during our week stay. the pool wasn't crystal clear and the stairs to second floor were difficult to climb. there was a guest who wouldn't leave us alone despite our request. there was no adult supervision for this little boy who was taking other children's toys and playing with them without their knowledge. we feel like we need a vacation.......

SandpiperMotel, Owner at Sandpiper Motel, responded to this review, 3 September 2010
Our staff is unaware of the problems you described. Had you voiced your concerns directly to the office, perhaps we would have been able to help you.

We take pride in our motel and I was shocked to read that your fan and curtains were dirty. I immediately did a complete inspection of all the rooms and found everything to be in fine order.

In the future, please go to the office of the motel where you are staying and tell them if there is a problem. The motel industry is a “hospitality” business and their goal is to make guests as comfortable as possible.

Thank you. Kathy, Owner/Manager

The motel is 1 minute away from the beach and the boardwalk. Close enough so that it's not annoying to walk, but far enough not to have any headache from the sound of music or tramcar.
The rooms are big, clean, and air conditionned. The exterior (pool, BBQ and chairs / tables) is very clean.
The owners are really nice people that always take the time needed to talk to my wife and I, as well as our kids...even if my kids only speak French!!! You need something? Go see Cathy. I haven't been able ton find anything for which she didn't have a solution to it.
If you're planning to go to Wildwood (NJ), this is the place to stay.

Our room had 3 beds. That was really good so my children, 14 and 10 didn't have to share. Check in/out was fast and easy. There are no phones in the room. That didn't bother me. The motel is at the beginning of the North end of the boardwalk. There is only one air conditioner which is in the bedroom. The other room was warmer. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will definetely return.

Every year during the NJ State Elks Convention, Kathy and the crew take every effort to make sure we have a most wonderful stay. The rooms are always super clean and the staff goes overboard to accomodate you for the stay. We always have an enjoyable experience and will continue to go to the Sandpiper for as long as they'll have us.

Stayed at the Sandpiper in North Wildwood, NJ for 2 nites on 8/19/09. One adult with four 15 year old teenage girls. Motel is located 1 short block from the beach/start of boardwalk. Motel is typical shore motel with the exception it was super CLEAN! Dropped something behind the full size refrigerator and was amazed how clean everything was. Kitchen was fully stocked. We all fit comfortably. Only dilemma was where to plug in hairdryers and such. No outlet in bathroom ... this can easily be fixed by packing an extension cord so the appliances reach to the mirror in the front and the back bedroom. That was our only dilemma. Great sun deck with view of the boardwalk and ocean ... great breezes. Owners were so friendly and just loved Spike ... the most adorable doggie in the office. He is just too cute. Would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a great location and clean accomodations. Looking forward to returning next year.

Clean rooms, sparkling pool, great location! The rooms are typical of the 60's layout, but have been upgraded. We love the fact that it is a small motel because the pool is not over crowded. The owners and staff are so congenial. We hit a great week because there is a beautiful flower bed that had butterflies flying all around it. The children loved that! Definitely a kid friendly motel!!! All the guests were so nice. It was our first time staying at the Sandpiper Motel. We'll be staying at this motel next year!!!
