“Great location”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Stayed here on a girls weekend trip. Check in was fairly easy but the man owner wasn't to nice but the female was great. Parking spacesare tight so beware. The room itself was ok. The kitchenette has a few dishes and nice for a couple. The two double beds had a weird wall that didn't go from floor to ceiling separating it. Leaving one with the across blowing right on it and the other with the TV. Beds are stiff and the only plug is directly behind them. The balcony was a nice touch. The bathroom is extremely outdated. It is in need of serious remodel on that part. Our toilet paper holder was broke and we thought the hot water was broke in the shower. You cannot turn the know as far as it will go or you get all cold water. You must turn a little and feel the water you will find the hot water. The price we felt was a little high for what we got paid 425 for three nights. The location is great a street over from the boardwalk, beach access,and wildwoods sign. The pizza place linked with this hotel is pretty good as well and open til 2 am which is a huge plus. Overall it was pretty good the hotel could be updated but for a beach hotel its about the same as everywhere u go. Nothing is ever super fancy. Beware the walls are paper thin and anyone up late or very early you will hear like they are in your own room so bring ear plugs if you must. Also bring another pillow and heavier blanket you will need it. You are not allowed to bring your beach chairs and umbrellas into the room they must stay in your car. Which is nice because who wants to lug them up and down the outdoor staircase everyday.I would only stay here again because of the location but I would be better.

This little motel has allot of charm and its literally right across from the Wildwoods sign and the bored walk. The new owners have really gone over and above to give us the most comfortable and happy experience possible. This owners have owned the motel since 2003 and really done a awesome job in restoring it and adding a few upgrades in the rooms. My husband and I stayed in a room that had a pool view, it was quite at night. I highly recommend this Motel to anyone wanting to get away. Home away from home indeed.

Room Tip: Room 21 has a pool view.

My wife and I waited till the last minute and we were not expecting much. We were treated well and we had a great time. Everything we needed they were friendly and quick to solve. I would recommend this place to others.

We didn't even get the chance to stay here because when we were checking in they started to treat us like s***! We reserved a room that could sleep 6 people and when we showed up (after a 2 hour drive) with 6 people they said only 2 of us could stay and the other 4 people had to pay an additional $20 per person. We contacted kayak (who we booked the room through) and they said they would cover the additional charge that the hotel was trying to charge us. When we returned into the hotel to continue checking in they "reserved the right to provide us service" and kicked us out. Rude rude RUDE people who do not care about their customers and are not accommodating to them at all.

My boyfriend and I decided to spend the night and day at the beach over the weekend and decided to stay at the El Ray...when we were escorted to our room we were overwhelmed by the noise and chaos of senior week at the hotel and surrounding hotels. The owner was generous enough to take us to an upper balcony secluded room that was peaceful with an ocean view. We had the most relaxing enjoyable stay due to the accommodating owner of the hotel. We are definitely looking forward to going back soon. I would highly recommend the hotel...

Stayed here a few times during the summer months. All I can say is great service and great rooms. We even had the chance to meet the owner, he was really friendly and welcoming. The pool was clean and the view from the deck was just beautiful. There is also a pizzeria next door with quick and good service. Pizza is pretty amazing too. Really close to the shore, just a short walk.

Room Tip: Be prepared to have a great time!
