Reviewed 19 July 2010

My daughter and I arrived early Friday afternoon at the Blue Palms Resort. I wasn't sure if we'd be able to get in our room. I was pleasantly surprised that the staff went out of their way to get us in our room at that time.
Our room was in the "breezeway", which meant that we had no view other than a wall. But we paid less for that room, so it was worth it. We weren't there to sit in our room and look out, anyway!! Besides, there are wonderful decks on the second floor that we took advantage of.
Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was clean and in good working order.
The pool was also nice, clean and open until 9:00pm.
The location of the motel was very important in our case, as we were attending an event put on by Morey's Piers. It is centrally located in the heart of Wildwood, a 1/2 block from the boardwalk.
We had a very nice experience at the Blue Palms, and expect to return next year.

My service at Blue Palms was excellent especially since it was last minute. My children and I are planning on doing this next year in advance. The service was good and the workers was greater. You can't believe everything you read you have to go visit it for yourself because all reviews weren't great, but my visit was the best. Also we only had to cross the street to get to the broadwalk. Thanks Blue Palms, see you next year.

once again we stayed at the blue palms/white star side of the motel this year. everything was great. had a pool view room on the bottom floor. was within walking distance to everything and the kids enjoyed the stay and play passes this year. was a great bargain. hope they have that again next year. the maid was very nice, kept us supplied with towels/wash cloths. the maintenance guys kept after testing the pool water which left us know it was safe to be in. the use of the grills and the choice of swimming in either pool was nice as 1 is a little bigger than the other and the kids enjoyed the bigger on and the little 1 was a little more quiet just to cool off in. thanks again for a great vacation and see you next year !!!!

I've always heard mixed opinions in regard to this motel and while we have a "regular" place we stay in Wildwood, an overnight trip gave us the opportunity to try the Blue Palms (keep in mind overnight stays are not usually allowed during the summer season- a special event made it possible for us to spend a single night at the motel and is not something I'd expect the motel to allow again in the future.)

The motel is an older facility that received some upgrades in recent years but remains fairly basic, which is typical of most places in Wildwood. Our room had some fairly old furniture but everything was in decent shape and the room was clean, which is always extremely important. Blue Palm's best feature is its excellent location a mere block from the heart of the Wildwood boardwalk as well as the beach. It's entirely possible for a vacationer to park his/her car at the motel and never have to use it to go anywhere in Wildwood because so much is within walking distance.

As is the case with most Wildwood motels, the rooms all face the pool area (except those in the breezeway area) which means things can get noisy if people are hanging out in the pool area until the later hours (which happens more often than not in Wildwood). That said, we weren't kept up by any noise so either the doors are thick or the hotel had an unusually quite crowd that night.

There are more luxurious (and expensive) motels in the area, especially if you move south to WIldwood Crest, but very few have a location that beats this one.

The room was a little ruff around the edges, but overall clean and comfortable. Although I did not go in it, the pool looked very clean,which leaves one with a good impression of the place. The staff that I had dealings with was very pleasant. The location is great and all in all for the price this hotel can't be beat.

Filthy, dirty and scummy...and that's being kind. Avoid this hell-hole at all costs! Spend your money elsewhere...any where else!
