We just got home from out first stay. I have to say the room and motel was very clean. Pool was very clean also. The atmosphere is a family feel and enjoyable. Me and my husband are thinking about returning in September for a get away alone.

We look forward to our trips to the Marlane every summer. The motel is just getting better and better, with the constant upgrades that Lisa and Chris do every year. It is located at a great place, just 2 blocks to the boardwalk and beach, close to the Convention Center and Fox Park is across the street, with a playground, tennis courts and concerts during the summer. Lisa and Chris are more than happy to make restaurant recommendations and give directions to other nearby attractions, such as the Cape May Zoo. The pool is heated, and there is a separate sundeck on the second floor. We love the free coffee and tea in the morning, and there is also a toaster for use, for those who don't have an efficiency. The back is set up with grills, for those who enjoy cooking out. We won't stay anywhere else but with Lisa and Chris at the Marlane.

Room Tip: They have efficiencies with a kitchette, regular motel rooms with a refrigerater and microwave, and...

My husband and I have been visiting Wildwood for 56 years and have stayed at many different places. This is our favorite by far and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. We usually visit multiple times each year with family. Lisa and Chris treat you like family and the whole staff is very accommodating. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The hardwood floors are much preferred to carpeting. We get to see and spend time with a lot of the same people each year. So close and convenient to every thing we enjoy.

My husband and I just stayed at the Marlane with our daughters (12 & 6) for the first time and it was wonderful. Lisa and Chris are very nice and make you feel like family. The room was clean, the pool was heated, and the free morning coffee they set up is wonderful! We had a small issue with the in room safe and called the front desk. Chris was there in minutes and fixed the problem. The location is great. The best part was that it was a family atmosphere. Can't wait til next year to stay again. Thanks Chris and Lisa for a great family vacation:)

I have been going to Marlane for the past two years now, I feel safe bringing my children here and it is very clean, but the honest truth is that the owners Lisa and her husband are great people. I run into some family issues while on my visit and Lisa was more than accommodating and understanding. They treat you like family and you sure feel that way. Clean, friendly and on a great location, what more can you ask for?

Very well-managed, friendly hosts, great location. Really between 4 and 5 stars. Problem is the clientele smokes on the grounds, so you need to walk through smoke as you go to and from your room. There are ashtrays in front of each room (no smoking inside rooms, though). I tried to hold my breath while walking, but found the constant smoking quite annoying.

Also, towels too thin.

Generally, this is safe, clean, nice environment for a family.

Thank you for the great comments. We did have a family that seemed to smoke quite heavily that week. I understand your feelings and I'm sorry. Unfortunately we do not have a large enough area to designate for smokers only, but usually our smoking guests are quite respectful of others. As you noted, there is no smoking in our rooms. We're glad you had a good vacation. That is always our goal.

This is the only place to stay in Wildwood. Chris and Lisa are not just owners they treat guests like family. Clean cozy accommodations just one block from boardwalk , convention center, and great restaurants. We wouldn't stay elsewhere if it were free!
