“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We ended up here because the place we usually stay was booked. The location was fine -- right on the beach! The pool and hot tub were fantastic, though I wish the hot tub would have stayed open a bit later at night. The room was good, but the bathroom is really in need of updating. (The plumbing was VERY slow.) The staff was excellent, friendly and helpful. Everything was very clean and well-maintained. Extra pillows would have been nice, as the pillows on the bed were not that supportive. One real problem for us were the number of smokers outside the rooms. I have asthma and it was really problematic. Couldn't sit outside our room and enjoy the ocean breeze because of all the smoke! (I know that is not something the Lampliter can control, though I wish there could have been smoking areas designated, away from the pool and other rooms.)

This was our first visit to Wildwood. I had to book a room on short notice (like one month in advance) since the location of the dance competition we were attending changed. I was lucky enough to get a room on the Oceanside building from Monday through Saturday. The rooms were recently renovated. They were clean and decorated nicely. I stayed in room 27 which is on the first floor with a view of the ocean. The first floor is slightly raised from the parking, but that still didn't take away from the view. I actually liked being on the 1st floor because it made my walk to the beach even faster. The family staying in the room next to us was very friendly as was others we met. All of the staff was friendly as well. I would definitely recommend this resort to others and hope I'm lucky enough to get a room here again!

Room Tip: Had a few problems with wi-fi on ocean view side. Could only get good connection if I sat outside on...

The room was renovated (except for the kitchen and bathroom- which I hear is in process) but even the outdated bathroom and kitchen was CLEAN! We had a great family trip. We already booked a room for next year..however it is difficult to get the room of your choice, because people come year after year after year and book way in advance- which is testament to the value and consistency of this gem.

Room Tip: one section of hotel faces the pool the other faces the ocean

Our efficiency had a great view....The rooms were clean, service outstanding; a perfect place to spend the weekend. Close to Cape May, the trolley to the famous Wildwood boardwalk, location is superb..The pool was sparkling, and the accessability to gas grills was a plus...We've already booked for next season

Room Tip: Just because your may not say "oceanfront" doesn't mean you won't have a great vi...

We have stayed at the Lampliter for the past 10+ years, always in the 2 bedroom apartment, number 28. As a family with a child with special needs this room has been the perfect getaway for our daughter, handicapped accessible with a ramp, 1st floor location and private deck allow us to enjoy the beach right from the room while caring for her. The two bedroom unit allows our daughter who can keep an unusual sleep schedule her own space and allow those in the second bedroom to sleep. Full kitchen including oven insure that we can make meals ahead of time and simply heat before serving. I have tried several other hotels in the area and nothing compares, friendly, not overbearing staff, clean pool and hot tub. Imagine our delight to find the room completely renovated this year with a comfortable pull out couch, beautiful kitchen including stainless steel appliances and in-room filtered water and ice. We already booked for next year! Room 28 is going to book up fast, everyone staying near us wanted a tour!

Oceanfront, great views. Pool good size and nice temperature. New gas lamps at pool add ambience. BBQ grills are plentiful and convenient. Parking lot is a little tight, but that adds some adventure. Will stay again next year.
