Coliseum Ocean Resort

The rooms were a bit small but who cares anyway : you spend most of your time outdoors anyway. It was right on the beach. No need to walk miles to enjoy the beach and view. Heated pool. It was really nice. I would go back!!!

We checked in late & were given a room on the 1st floor, we had really wanted a 2nd or 3rd floor room. We spoke to the nice lady Amanda & together, both her & the manager Wally, upgraded us to a really nice 2nd floor room when they had a cancellation. They were so accommodating & kind. Very nice outside area to sit & enjoy the night. Highly recommend this hotel!! Great location & price. :)

Great Location but it was a typical Beach Motel. Nice pool but room needs to be updated. Poor lighting, old floor and management needs to tell housekeeping to keep the door closed when making up the rooms. Walked into a Lot of Flies!! There was no fly swatter in the room but I did bring one. I Was after them all night. King size bed was great, old TV on a bracket was No Good( need Flat-panel) but room had a kitchen with a frig. Own parking some was a plus and beach was free. Oh yes free WIFI terrible. All in all, as I said, you get what you pay for, $150 a night

Don't believe what you see in the pictures! Rooms are very small and not the cleanest. For the first time on vacation I actually bought cleaning products! Kitchen and bathroom are very small. Bedroom is okay. Maid service sucks I swear all they do is make the beds and take out garbage. Floors are not swept or moped and if they are they need lessons on doing both. Last thing is only one parking spot, our family has two rooms and we only received one spot, had to park pur other car a block away from the hotel. Only positive thing I will say is it is very close to the beach!

This "resort" should win an award for having the most deceptive advertising ever ! It is a small, filthy dump. We stayed for 2 nights and couldn't get out of there fast enough.

The room is so small that if you are a family of 4 you will literally be bumping into each other. The "kitchen unit " consists of a cheap plastic table and 3 very small plastic chairs that you would use in your yard, but not in a hotel. The bathroom opens directly into the kitchen and is so small that when you sit on the toilet the sink is right in front of your face. The sink has no counter so there is nowhere to place your personal items. It all looked so old and musty that you didn't even want to shower. I wouldn't even think of using the kitchen area for anything, that's how gross and dated it all was.

Then there was the bedroom....I am convinced there are jail cells that are more comfortable. The floor was filthy with sand all over it, which of course made it's way onto the sheets. The beds were awful and lumpy with old, dirty looking linens. Our room had a door that was attached to another room and we could clearly hear all the noise from the room next door, from their TV to their discussion of what to eat for breakfast. The beds were so close together that you had to crawl in from the end and by the end of the second day my kids were afraid to take their shoes off.I went to bed with the feeling that something was going to crawl on me. The musty smell was overwhelming and putting the air on did not help at all. And because we were on the first floor and near the pool, there were constantly people right outside our window...and let's just say that some of the guests looked very questionable.

The only nice thing I can say about the place is that their little restaurant was convenient and the food was actually pretty good. We had egg sandwiches for breakfast and pizza for lunch and it was good and reasonable. And yes, the location on the beach was good but there are also 100 other motels in the same location.This place is not worth a fraction of the money they charge.
By later in the week we moved into another motel and were very happy and actually plan on returning later in the month.

Room Tip: There probably aren't any! Save your money.

This was the third year we chose to stay at the Coliseum. We stayed last year and noticed things going down hill, but took a gamble again this year because the prices just can't be beat. New management and cleaning staff have done an excellent job of improving service here. Maids are fast and efficient and, most of all, friendly. We were able to check in a full 3 hours earlier than the regular check-in time...something that has never happened here before. The rooms are clean, as is the parking lot and pool area. Location is still one of the best in Wildwood Crest...just steps from the beach.

Be warned - Parking is tight on the inside parking lot...try to get a spot on the outside. We barely drive once we reach Wildwood, so this usually works well for us.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second and third floors have the best views of the ocean. First floor rooms are good fo...

Don't be fooled by the online pictures like we were! The place is dirty, cramped, and extremely outdated. The electrical receptacles are a fire hazard. The management was poor. The clientele that stayed here did not care about the other people. They were lighting off fireworks and throwing them off the balconly into the parking lot where all the cars were. The cops were called but they still continued to do this past midnight. We were supposed to stay Thursday thru Sunday and left on Friday morning. Will never go back!

Room Tip: Don't come here!
