We stayed at the dolphin for elks weekend and had a wonderful time. It is newly remodeled, great staff, and convenient location. The rooms had kitchenettes and the pool was heated and nicely maintained. Can't wait until next year we will definitely be back. Thanks Barbie!

First time at the Dolphin inn and was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean. and was newly remodel. nice size tv with Direc tv. Was close to the beach and convention center. Barbie the manager was very nice and always ask if we needed any thing. will stay again. The only draw back was that there was too much light coming in the room at night.

My sister and I needed a place to stay close to the start/finish line of the Wildwood Half and Dolphin Inn showed up as one of the places that was close. Previously, my family had stayed at the Bel-Aire, but we haven't been there in years and knew it was in decline. Barbie at Dolphin Inn was able to offer us a one-night stay just to come in for the race where other hotels were only allowing rentals at 2 nights or more. The hotel is very kitchy (but it's Wildwood and part of it's charm!!) with an in-ground pool next to the office, but it's very clean and well-kept. Our room was on the second floor and was immaculate. We had a huge king sized bed, a seating area with a table, a large apt sized fridge and freezer, a little kitchenette complete with sink and two burner stove, and a very nice bathroom. A flat screen tv with DirecTV was located above the fridge and was perfect. They do offer free Wi-Fi for guests, however, the signal strength on the 2nd floor is next to none so it didn't work for us. We tried several times (maybe invest in a booster from your local data service - Verizon or Comcast). The team was great in allowing us a late check-out so we could shower and pack before heading home after the race (Thank you!!!). The only recommendation I can give is to maybe invest in some softer mattresses. The mattress we had was a bit like sleeping on a concrete slab. As someone with muscle and joint pain, I had to take my pillows and sleep on those instead. The mattress was just way too firm. I would definitely recommend a stay here. Only a block to the beach, only several blocks from the Convention Center and maybe a 10-15 min walk to the rides piers. We felt very safe and sound here.

First time visiting Wildwood and the Dolphin Inn was the perfect place. Great location one block from the ocean and boardwalk. The girls working the desk were awesome. Plan on returning and staying there. Highly recommend the Dolphin Inn!!!

My sister and I just spent the weekend at the Dolphin Inn during the TIA Tournament of Bands competition. We had a great weekend and really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Pam and Penny could not have been nicer or more helpful. Anything we needed, they were right there whether it was restaurant recommendations or directions to the casinos. The location of the hotel was perfect; close to the boardwalk, the convention center and the beach. The room was very clean and our housekeeper Sandi was very nice. Our only suggestions would be quieter ac/heat units and more electrical outlets. We look forward to staying at the Dolphin Inn again soon!

Room Tip: While this is not oceanfront, room 216 does have a slight view of the ocean out your back window.
