“Best Motel in Wildwood to stay at”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Sixteen years my family been staying at Marlane. This hotel has everything that you need. It is very clean, family oriented and quiet in which we love. No loud teenagers and everyone there is very nice. Lisa and Chris is very nice and polite. If you need anything they will accompany you with it. We LOVE coming down every year and it is close to the boardwalk. Hope to come back down next year. Best place to stay in Wildwood if you want to relax in peace.

and I have come to Wildwood at least once a year for all of my 45 years...

This hotel has everything that has been ignored in Wildwood for years: cleanliness, top notch customer service and a very good value!!!


The rooms are a bit small but not uncomfortable and kept very clean. it is very obvious that the owners take great pride in presenting a very clean, well-kept property.

Lisa In the office was not only very friendly and efficient but also took the time to orient us to the property and to local area attractions such as best beach access and good places to eat. She was even able to help out with some specific special requests we had that were not normally accommodations that this type of property would make...

As mentioned above, the room was a little small but absolutely spotless. The
beds were comfortable. The air conditioning was more than efficient for the room (something lacking in many Wildwood motels). There was plenty of water pressure and hot water for your shower.

The pool was clean and warm. There is a covered picnic area with 2 gas grills you can use. They even have beach chairs and boogie boards that you can borrow (yes borrow, not rent) for the beach. They also have a nice secure area to lock up your bikes.

Be aware, though, that the secret of this place is getting out. Make reservations early as they book up quickly.

Second year in a row that we stay at the Marlane, and I can't see the year where we don't stay at the Marlane!
The cleanliness, the pool, the location, the parc across the street, the BBQ area, and what to say about the owners - great people running a great motel.
Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in the Wildwoods, expecially with a young family!

We LOVE staying at the Marlane Motel and of alllll the motels/hotels in Wildwood we always attempt to book our yearly visit at the Marlane!!!! Lisa and her husband are always very welcoming and polite. The recent renovations with the new paint and windows was noticed as soon as we pulled in to park.

If you're looking for a Great place to stay that's not only Clean, Close to the Boardwalk, Affordable, and has owners that truly care about you and your stay please look no further than the Marlane Motel. You won't be disappointed :)))

Room Tip: 201 or 202 is our Favorite if you're traveling as a couple and seeking a King Size bed.

We stayed there from july 28 to aug. 2nd. We appreciated the calmness of the motel, everything was clean, and what to say about Lisa... She's just amazing! Even though we arrived a day early than we were supposed to (my fault!!!) we did get a really great service! Lisa and her mother in law helped us find a motel for that night because the Marlane Motel was full and made sure our room was ready asap the next morning because we had to check out early from the other place. When we got there around 10:30 on sunday morning, our room was totally ready for us! Everything is user friendly; you can use the motels boogie boards and some beach chairs to go to the beach, you can use the BBQs on the patio to cook yourself a good meal instead of always going to the restaurants and the host are there to make your stay as good as it can be. The housekeepers were really friendly and I have to say, the most honnest! One morning, we left for the beach and forgot a 20$ bill on the bed. We thought that they would think it was their tip and take it but no; they left it on the desk. Thanks for your honnesty ladies! The pool is super clean, the room is really comfortable. One thing that we thought was great was that it is near everything; the beach, the boardwalk, the waterparks and the amusements parks. We will be back to this motel for sure and we will recommand this hotel to the people we know. And needless to say THAT WE DID NOT GET DISCOUNTS FOR OUR GOOD REVIEW!

We just spent the last two days at Marlane Motel and it lives up to its great reviews, clean, quiet, and comfortable, Lisa and her husband make sure everyone is happy and they work hard on the upkeep of the grounds, its a family place and kids love it , its close to the boardwalk but not noisy.

The only little problem we had was that the air conditionaire was a bit too loud ,but like all units thru. the wall its louder than central air. All in all , money well spent.
looking forward to going back and staying at the Marlane Motel.

Room Tip: this is a small motel only about 25 rooms so book your trip early , the good ones fill up quickly

Stayed three nights last week at the Marlane and it was excellent. The place (our room, the pool, and the building's grounds) is incredibly clean and well cared for and the owner is great to deal with. When we came two years ago, we stayed at a motel in the crest that was disgusting, so this was a HUGE upgrade, we will definitely stay there the next time we visit Wildwood.
