“Great hotel!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Could not have been happier staying at StarLux Hotel. We had a great experience. Loved the room - clean, nice touches! Everyone was so friendly and helpful - all four people we dealt with at front desk along with housekeeping and maintenance - outstanding. Pool was beautiful and clean. So nice to have free bike rentals along with board games. The location was ideal - only a block from the beach. Highly recommend.

I have stayed in a few different hotels and motels in Wildwood and the Starlux wins on every angle! It has a great atmosphere, keeping the 1950s doowop architecture of Wildwood alive while still being modern and very clean. I have stayed in the airstreams and the cottage and the hotel itself. The airstream trailers are my personal favorite but all accommodations were excellent. The amenities of the hotel are great, take advantage of the free beach cruisers, the pool is clean (and welcoming- unlike the typical small pools found at many nearby motels), even the toiletries are nice- they offer them from the brand Philosophy. And the location is great, right at the start of the boardwalk- so you can walk to everything but the beach is still a nice beach to enjoy (not directly next to the coasters- or with the helicopters taking off every minute if you go on the beach by the middle pier of the boardwalk). I always regret it when I try and stay somewhere else, the Starlux will not disappoint!

Our Chicago-based family of two parents and two children (ages 3 and 6) stayed at the Starlux over the 4th of July weekend along with our family friends from Rutherford, NJ. We were immediately impressed with the kitschy, 50s style Starlux. It was clean, practical, and kid-friendly, and the proximity to the beach, boardwalk, and the center of Wildwood was incredible. An added bonus was the outdoor pool and life vests for the kids who swam until they couldn't swim anymore!

The suite was just what we needed with a door to separate the bedroom from the living room. It wasn't large, but having lived in Europe the size was nothing out of the ordinary for us. I was concerned about noise late at night due to the location, but apparently the Starlux' walls are well insulated as this was not an issue even the night of the 4th.

I want to close my review with a word about the staff. Not only were the front desk folks always eager to help and make suggestions, but when my daughter's favorite bathing suit was lost at the hotel, they located it and shipped it right off to Chicago. Now that's top notch service. Thank you Starlux for a great family vacation!

Room Tip: The 1 bedroom suite was ideal for our family of 4.

We stayed at the Starlux for three nights in July and it was incredible. The hotel really does everything the right way, from the front desk clerks to the housekeepers. When you think of a motel in Wildwood, you think of a rundown, outdated place from the 1950's. The Starlux is everything but rundown and outdated. The owners have updated everything and the rooms are very comfortable. They do all the little things right, including very soft bath towels and sheets. The pool area is definitely the best place to hang out and relax at this property. You are a half block away from the boardwalk and any kind of restaurant you can imagine. I would highly recommend the Starlux to any family that is looking for a comfortable place to stay and play while in Wildwood.

Room Tip: The two bedroom suites on the top floor are great.

We stayed on 7/11. The staff is exceptional and simply went out of their way to offer dining suggestions and assistance. It is very clean. I stayed in a 2 Double. It was small, but larger than other beach hotels I have stayed in. Freebies: Wifi, beach gear use, washer/dryer, dvd's to watch on the in room DVR, and a basic continental breakfast. My morning's selection was plain bagels, mini lemon poppyseed muffins, danish, and coffee. I would have liked some juice or fruit, but I liked it here so much, I was willing to give them a pass. :) 1 block to the beach. So many positives. I am definitely going back.

We stayed at the Starlux with our family of 4. My boys were so excited for staying in the airstream trailer and it did not disappoint. The trailer was clean, quiet, and well maintained. We had a private area outside the trailer with tables and a grill which allowed for us to eat our meals outside. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The hotel was only a block from the beach and the hotel pool was clean. We would stay here again.

We stayed at the Starlux last Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings (July 4th weekend) with our four year old daughter and seven year old son, and were also traveling with two other couples who had children ranging from ages 3-8. We did stay at their sister resort last year See my other review for the port royale, but there wasn't availability for all three families this time around unfortunately) and there were both similarities and differences, but overall, once again, we were pleased with our choice of lodging. The standard room in which we stayed was quite small, however it was very cute and clean. We were super pleased with the friendly, efficient service and room cleaning during our stay; I asked for extra pillows and promptly received them. Turn down service was done daily when we returned each evening, and they even provide you with high end Philosophy toiletries! They have a small pool with a hot tub which was well maintained and clean, and this was great for the children on our first day upon arrival. They even provided us with pool towels (though we didn't bring our own and regretted it), and next to the pool were two grills for BBQ'ing, though we didn't take advantage of this feature (though many others did and seemed satisfied). Perhaps the best feature is the free continental breakfast which was made up of assorted muffins, danish, bagels, and very good hot coffee! Our friends with four kids stayed in an efficiency suite which was a very nice size with a living room, kitchen, and small table, perfect for us to all eat breakfast before the days activities began. The location is also great, around 8-9 blocks to walk to the boardwalk. Oh, and I forgot to mention that they loan you bicycles for free, and my two girlfriends and I got up early and had a lovely ride one morning. There's even a game room for the kids, and a lounging community room with AC and a television to just hang out in. There were laundry machines though we didn't utilize them. Overall, this was a perfect place to stay when you are out of the room most of the day and staying for no more than three days, and I highly recommend doing the Stay and Play package as well to get all inclusive rides and water park access on all three of the Morey's piers (as this hotel is owned by Morey's-ask about this feature as soon as you check in for sure!). Overall, Starlux is a winner, and we will def. stay here again.
