“Believe the bad reviews!”
Reviewed 25 June 2007

We stayed at the Beach Terrace the weekend of June 23rd for a soccer tournament, and were extremely disappointed. The room/suite was very pricey (over $200.00 per night), and was dirty, dingy, and generally very sad. One of the elevators and the only ice machine were broken during our stay, the towels were thin and rough, and the toilet paper and tissues were the cheapest I've ever seen. The bathroom was tiny, and the shower alternated between freezing and scalding water. We have stayed in Wildwood Crest in past years(at the Bal Harbour and the El Coronado), and were very pleased; the surrounding area is much prettier, and both hotels offer a much, much better value for your money. The Beach Terrace is definitely not worth the price!

This was my first time ever vactioning in wildwood, I was a little
nervous to stay here because of the reviews, which by the way, don't listen to them. All of the rooms in the hotel have a balcony, if you do stay here, try to get a room on the fifth floor or higher for a great view of the beach. All of the rooms are quite roomy, you get a nice living room with a convertible couch, large tv and table and chairs, a large closet room with a vanity and sink, the bathroom was a little small, and a large bedroom, another tv, dresser, and very comfy beds. The balcony had a great view of the beach and waterslide park, and 2 nice chairs. the room was spotless, and trust me i'm very anal about hotels being clean. The staff was very friendly, always smiling and quick to say good morning or hello. If I ever go to wildwood again, I will definately stay here again.

  • Liked — how clean the room was
  • Disliked — bathroom was a little small, but that didn't matter

This hotel has been a landmark in my mind for many years. The buffet on the first floor, Rusty Rudder, has an amazing breakfast spread. I always wanted to stay in the hotel due to the great food and for the view of the boardwalk and beach.

This past weekend aug 25-27th my fiance and I visited the hotel and stayed in room 613 which had 2 beds a small living area with fridge and ocean view balcony. The bathroom was clean, the room smelled fine and from what I observed nothing was dirty, dusty or old.

Maids did what they had to do and the front desk was very helpful.

Stay there on friday nights during the summer, they have fireworks at 10:30 and the view from the balcony is amazing, so great i chose to propose to my girl during the finale

  • Liked — The view from the balcony
  • Disliked — as with all wildwood hotels, a bit pricey
  • Tips/Secrets — all rooms are ocean view

We just got home this morning from a 5 day stay at Beach Terrace. I gave this Motel 3 stars. Rooms were clean but dated. Pool area was well kept and clean. Great location. Staff and maintenance personnel are very professional and courteous. We travel with other family members and there are little children. Motel was one block from the boardwalk and located at the half way point. We didn't have to walk far for anything. Water park is half a block away. This is a larger motel. We prefer smaller more family oriented motels. We heard a lot of noise during the night. 3:30 AM we could here people upstairs from us. Yesterday we had a bad leak in the bathroom from the ceiling and had to call maintenance. Ended up being something with the air conditioning unit. We did not like the restaurant that is located inside the motel. It is a buffet and we have had much better. We tried both breakfast and dinner. We most likely wouldn't stay here again but I would say that is personal preference due to the larger size of this motel.

  • Liked — Location
  • Disliked — noise
  • Tips/Secrets — If you want a quiet family oriented place stay someplace smaller. We picked up brochures and already know of a nice place.

My husband and I just returned home from spending 3 nights at the Beach Terrace. We were there with a group of friends. We loved it so much we are going back in July with our 2 children. After reading the reviews I was worried about staying there. I was very happy with our room, we had more than enough space, the carpet was brand new and so was the bedspread. I have been going to Wildwood for over 30 years and this hotel was definetly one of the best. The air conditioner kept our room cold and everything in our room worked. I do agree with the comments that you should not have to pay for ice but you get alot of ice for .25, and for the amount you get it's cheaper than buying a bag at a store.

Just back after spending three days at this motel. The room was good size, had a kitchenette with refrig. and microwave, table and chairs 2-burner cooking area(very dirty), a tv and sofa. Room was well used but acceptable. The fridge did not work and if you wanted ice (2nd floor only) you had to pay. Good location, near water and eating spots.
Food at the motel was fair, service people were nice but harried. Not enough to work several buses at one time. The shower in the bathroom is a horrible experience. First, only soap provided with towels. No shampoo, hair dryer, etc. Water leaps from extremely hot to extremely cold without warning and it does this often. Be prepared to hop around the tub. Would I recommend this place? If you do not have high expectations and can "rough it" for your stay, then ok. I gave this place a two star rating but it was a generous two star. Good luck.
