Best Place@ Wildwood for the money & my family Loved it! We Hated to Leave! Clean rooms, Exceptional costumer service, I've never felt so welcome! Great Location,and the heated pool is open late after the Boardwalk closes..My kids took full advantage of that!!
Shiv(owner) & Cody(manger) have done a marvelous job! We can't wait for our next stay!. This will be the first place I'll check anytime i want to come to Wildwood..if they're booked,..i'll change my schedule to get a room there!

.and Not one scratch on My Car ;)

Room Tip: If you have Children . I would suggest the 2 room apt.

We stayed overnight for Elks weekend and it's perfectly located right next to a liquor store and an Acme for groceries. 3 blocks away from the beach and the boardwalk means easy traveling without having to drive or pay for parking. The room was comfortable and has all of your basic amenities. We actually tried to get in the hot tub but the pool area was closing, and the owner turned it back on and let us go in anyway! The staff were always pleasant and helpful, and you can tell it's family owned and operated because of the extra attention to customer satisfaction. Well worth a stay, and the price is perfect for the proximity to everything going on. Definitely will stay here again.

Ryan, there's nothing quite like staying so close to the beach that you can just hop over there without driving, is there? I'm happy to hear you and your guests had a great time staying with us and that you got to enjoy the hot tub. The next time you're looking for a little beach getaway, we'll be here!

All the best,
Shiv, Owner

I have a very picky spouse! And he liked it! If your looking for upscale 5 star go elsewhere....if your looking for a nice clean friendly place to stay and save money this is the place. Rooms are out dated and worn but it really doesn't matter. They are very clean...new sheets, towels everything daily. Everything smells clean and the owners are great helpful and friendly. They run a family type motel and watch out for trouble so if your here to party its not the place. If your here with family its perfect.... clean pool and hot tub! Just really a hidden gem if your looking to save and have a clean safe friendly place to stay. We were here for 3 nights with younger kids!

While we were staying there, we noticed a lot of things we did not like. We got yelled at for our kids being too loud in the pool. The owner apparently had a headache. How do you tell a 2 and 8 year old to swim quietly?! We are on vacation to have fun. Also, we felt like we were being watched. The owner closed our door and always came over to let us know when he was leaving or when he arrived. The floor was not swept. My mother in law had to sweep it. All in all, the stay was not good. We do not plan on staying there again. Considering what we paid, we should of had a better stay.

I'm disappointed you didn't enjoy your stay. You're right -- kids should be kids and get to swim around and have fun! It's also surprising to hear that the floor wasn't swept. When you're on vacation, all you should have to be responsible for is relaxing!

That said, we are under new management and are taking care to make sure our guests have the best possible stay. Do you think you'd be up for giving us a shot? We know we can really change your mind about our place!

All the best,

A great little motel 5 blocks from the boardwalk. Clean but basic with a nice little pool and jacuzzi. Everything you would ever need for a great shore weekend. In easy walking distance to the Boardwalk, grocery stores, liquor stores and several restaurants. Great staff too.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the inner courtyard of the hotel away from the sometimes busy traffic.

This is a great place to stay, very clean, great pool and the owner Joe is one of the nicest people that you will ever met. My family has been staying here twice each summer for the last 4 years and we do not ever think of staying anywhere else. My daughter loves the pool and the fact that each time we are there we run into some of the same guests, it is like family. Looking forward to many more years staying at The Sand Box!
