While the room decor is a bit date, they are very clean. No funny smell to rooms. Great heated pool and poolside area is nice with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. Love that the hote is right on the beach so if you aren't in the mood for the pool, the beach is right there. Laundry room on site for guests. Very nice management. Regarding location, it is a good distance from the boardwalk, which is a good thing from my point of view, and very close to Cape May. Definitely going back.

45 years ago I spent my summer vacation at the Lamplighter with my parents and my best friend Karen. WE had stayed at Lamplighter before and always had the best vacation ever. I was 15 and met the boy I had my first crush on.Fast Forward and i wanted to share Wildwood with my adult son. We booked an ocean side room and had a fabulous time. The motel is sparkling clean and so comfortable. How close the ocean is and the boardwalk a quick ride away. We enjoyed sitting on our terrace and loved the pool and hot tub. Best of all were our hosts and their beautiful portugese water dogs. Glorious weekend.... Memories forever!

The beach is close and 100 steps from your room! The rooms are clean, rooming and comfortable. The staff is friendly. A great place for a family vacation. We stay on the Oceanside efficiencies and it is our home away from home and our families and friends have been coming here for 20+ years. The location is fabulous!

Probably the most comfortable bed I have been on in a hotel. Very friendly staff. The hot tub was great overlooking the beach. The pool was open 9am to 9pm and always warm. It's located right on the beach next to the bal harbor. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Very nice place to stay with the family. We had the oceanfront room with separate bedroom. Kids slept on the pull out couch. Plenty of room for all of us. Beautiful view of the ocean and pool. The beach was close and there were many people who walked it every morning early, like my son and me. The housekeeping staff was awesome....we had Raquel and she spoiled us. She was so helpful and accommodating. We just loved her! Thanks Raquel! All of the staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. My only suggestion would be to get new kitchen tables. With fabric seats, the chairs were a bit stained in our room. Other than that, it's a great place to stay and relax. One of the highlights of the area....the "F r e s h F r u i t" guy that sells all kinds of fresh fruit in his truck.

Thanks for the stay...we'll be back next year! :)

Room Tip: If you're traveling with the family, get the room with the separate bedroom. Gives plenty of ro...

We just finished our 2nd stay at the Lampliter & all around it was 5 stars. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the staff is accommodating and the pool area is absolutely beautiful. This time we spent the first few nights in one of the Oceanside rooms which was amazing – light & airy with a lovely view. The Oceanside rooms have some advantages: ocean front view from your window/door and easy access to the sun deck with grills, hot tub and picnic tables. Our last night was back on the Lampliter side where the advantages are proximity to the pool (which is great for the kids), being near the office/laundry/ice facilities and easy access to a pleasant seating area with a fountain. There was a good, family-friendly crowd staying at the same time as us, and my sense is that there are a lot of regulars at the Lampliter (which is a great sign). We could also easily walk to a few local eateries which was a nice bonus. The only issue we encountered, which is not necessarily the fault of Lampliter management, is that in this day and age so many folks like to have big SUVs and vans which can making navigating & parking in smaller areas such as the Lampliter lots more challenging. And one of our fellow travelers was a bit careless when backing up her SUV near some children though again that was no fault of the Lampliter. That being said, we never had trouble finding a parking space during our entire stay. We definitely look forward to staying at the Lampliter again soon & would highly recommend to anyone looking for a prime spot on the ocean in Wildwood Crest.

This is a great place if you love the beach and don't need fancy digs. Clean, accommodating, and friendly. Location is awesome. We stayed in July for 5 days. Ocean front room with separate (queen)bedroom, we had two kids stay on the pullout and one on air mattress. This was fine for us. Closed up bed during the day and had plenty of room. (who stays inside anyway!) Full size fridge, microwave, stove top;so we cooked in and ate out. Also used the gas grills on the deck, clean/worked great. Tables with umbrellas on the patio, always got a spot to dine outside. Place was full yet not crowded. This was our 2nd stay, last year we stayed short notice in Aug last minute for just a few nights w/o kids. It's great for the family or just the grown ups. The beach is right at the end of the patio and is prime Wildwood Crest beach location, with soft sand and great waves. Kids boogie boarded and played in sand until they were exhausted. The pool is nice, kids had a blast and made new friends every day. Nice and quiet area at night, you could put the kids to bed and relax in the lounge chairs on the patio. Housekeeping came every morning, very nice. Walkable to boardwalk but not "too close".
I can see us staying there many times over the years to come. Thanks for the nice stay :)

Room Tip: ocean front rooms are worth the extra few dollars.
