BACK AWAY from booking the diplomat. We had reservations to stay at the diplomat this past month. We drove to wildwood from north Jersey and had reservations for 6 nights. We usually stay at the Bolero which we love but they were sold out... so we figured we would stay close. When we arrived we figured, looks okay, like ever other hotel in wildwood so we went inside. The Managers were very nice people but the room we recieved was straight out of a horror film. Firstly it was Hot... and the controls were broken for the air. The fan in the tv room had so much dust it could have formed a stuffed animal. So as soon as we turned the fan on we were covered and all choking. The beds were small. The room smelled very musty. We then went out on our little patio connected to our room and there was about 2 million ciggarette butts on the ground, not cleaned up and it looked very dirty. The bathroom was smaller than a toliet and the floor was so grungy looking i would rather have walked on glass than it. When we left the room we went downstairs to see if they had another room because we werent satisfied with this one, and we saw the inside of one that looked a little newer and cleaner but they insisted they didnt. We werent going to spend our vacation at a dump so we voted to take our chances and find another place. The only problem with that was that this hotel automatically charges you with a fee for booking that you can NOT get back if you decide not to stay... so we had to pay one nights stay which was 117$ at this point we didnt care because 117$ is better than possibly catching a disease. We ended up going down to the OceanView Motel in Wildwood Crest (after finding out it was owned by the same people who own the Bolero) and we had a great stay with VERY comfortable beds! Let me tell you we DID our research on hotels/motels and usually pick a good one... so I hope this helps for future travelers.
