Well, we survived our 4 days at the Monaco Motel, but just barely! There were 4 of us staying there. We paid extra to get a room with a kitchenette, which at the other 2 motels I've stayed in Wildwood meant a bigger room, an actual kitchen area, table, chairs, etc. But here it was really just a regular motel room (and a very, very small room at that) with a teeny, tiny bit of kitchen stuff jammed into the corner. Mini fridge, no oven, no counter space, circa 1980-something microwave on a tilted wire shelf above my head that threatened to come down on me every time I used it! There was one little half-table and 2 chairs. The table was needed to hold other stuff because the rest of the room was so small, so you had to sit on the beds to eat. Oh, and make sure you bring your own coffee. There was a coffee pot, but no coffee!! I have never stayed anywhere that had a coffee pot but no coffee!! We also brought food for grilling, which the motel said on its website that it had. However, when I went to use it, it had a nice "Out of Order" sign on the grate inside the grill. So I had to burn our chicken in the tin pot on the stove burner. However, by the last day there, a new grill did show up. Thankfully the AC worked. You needed it to clear the stuffiness out of the room because the miniscule bathroom had no fan!! After everyone showered, all the walls were dripping with water. And if you need ice, be prepared to hunt down the owner every time, because it is always locked. The one nice thing I will say about the place is that it was clean (no bedbugs), and the cleaning staff was very friendly. The proximity to the boardwalk was nice, but there are about 100 other motels on the same street. Next time we go, we will find another one.
