Great family friendly hotel! Pool was perfect and always clean as the hotel was also the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in! Denise and Kelly went above and beyond and were very friendly and outgoing! They always made us feel at home!

My family and I have visited the Esplanade multiple times over the past few years, and have never been disappointed. Memorial Day weekend we came down, my husband, daughter, and 2 dogs, and had a wonderful experience. Our dogs were so excited that they made a bit of noise (my sincerest apologies!), but we calmed them down, took them for a nice walk and they were able to relax for the rest of the weekend. This is one of the few places in Wildwood that will accept pets, and make us feel more than welcome. The pool was clean and inviting, and we spent much of our time there talking with some of the other friendly guests. This place seems to have a crew of return guests who are just our speed, and I enjoyed sharing stories as the kids played together in the pool. From our balcony we had a breathe taking view of the kites flying over the Atlantic during the kite flying competition, and it was really a once in a lifetime scene. The location of the Esplanade cannot be beat, as it is away from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk but just two blocks from the beach. There are grills available to use, which we took advantage of for the first time. Clean and well maintained, my husband enjoyed cooking lunch for us one afternoon.

To Denise and the rest of the staff at the Esplanade, thank you for your welcoming accommodations and all you have done for my family and I over the years. We look forward to returning again this summer and every summer. I don't think we would want to stay anywhere else!

PS: Jack and Lilo loved the Milkbones, thank you:)

Stayed at Esplanade Suites based on Trip Advisor reviews & the fact they take pets.

The 1st thing we always do is check the mattress for pests. They were sealed in plastic - good? I don't know.

The light bulbs were dirty, burns on sink, antiquated lamps with rickiety shades, scratched up table. Problem is it is all Mom & Pop motels in this area.

I like the idea they take pets, but not really an area to walk the dog.

I really have nothing to compare this place to in the area. It just seems to me that Wildwood, being in NJ, and it's main business being the Boardwalk, would have all winter to "tidy the place up". All of the bulbs over the vanity were really.. really dirty, they could easily be cleaned. The scratches on the table could be touched up. The vanity in the bathroom opened, but had no shelves and a loose board on the top. They had "Bodycology" shampoo, conditioner & lotion (not expensive, you can get it at Walmart) but, I swear, the lotion container seemed like it was re-filled. You know how the liquid gets in the sides of the cap when a container is re-filled? I may be wrong... but, I really don't think so.

$99 + $25 for pet = off season.... Not a good deal for this - sorry

Affordable and beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised at how lovely this place was. The owner and employees were so nice and accommodating to all of our needs.The best part is they ate per friendly my dog enjoyed this hotel just as much as my family did. The location is perfect and they have tons of information o things to do and see as well as the best restaurants to eat at. The rooms are decorated so beautifully that I want to change my home to look just like it. They even have philosophy brand toiletries which is my favorite. It really was so relaxing comfortable and cozy. I will definitely make this hotel my first choice when visiting the jersey shore. Overall a great place with great honest friendly people. I can't wait to stay there again. They really had everything I needed during my stay like a cute little kitchenette with a stove sink microwave dishes pot pans everything and it was all so cute and matching. I will definitely be coming back as soon as possible!

I am finally getting to writing this review, we had been going through a very difficult several months and if it were not for Denise I have absolutely no idea where we would be now, she went out of her way to help out my family when things were tough and she was extremely helpful as well as everyone who works there, they truly care about the people there. My family finally got situated where they wanted to go, I am the only one still here in Wildwood. I highly, recommend Esplanade, very clean and again everyone is so nice and very accommodating. God Bless Denise and everyone there. :-)

We're coming down tonight for the Race of Gentlemen and was really nervous about an internet reservation site unseen. These reviews have certainly calmed me down. Can't wait to experience this for ourselves..

I will review (for real) when our visit is over :)
