“Dated motel six, with a nice kids play area.”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

If you're looking for a cheap motel vacation, this is it. Don't expect any bells or whistles. It appears to have not been updated in at least twenty years. The furniture, bathroom, bedding, televisions and walls are antiquated! Very motel six! The one tv is a magnivox that doesn't even have a remote.... U have to get up and change channels! The microwave was rusted in the back, the tile was crumbling on the bathroom, the pool is a small pool, which only gets up to four feet deep and the elevator is tiny, old and smells! On a positive note, it has a nice kids play area... Overall, you can do better for the price... Will not be coming back!

My Family visited the Admiral after hearing glowing reviews from friends who go there annually. Our visit lived up to their reviews. The staff was very attentive to all of our needs, the front desk was helpful in providing insider tips (it helped that the attendant was a Crest "lifer") and recommended some tucked away spots for dinner and entertainment. The view of theocean from the balcony was impressive, especially at sun rise. The Admiral Restaurant served up tasty food for both breakfast and lunch, but bring your appetite, and try the pancakes..The Admiral was a great place for our family trip and we will be coming back.

My family and I recently stayed in one of the King Efficiencies at the Admiral. The location was great...not too far from the boardwalk but far enough away to avoid the noise. The location is excellent, having young children, the park across the street was a great diversion after a day at the beach. The staff was extremely helpful (good recommendations on family friendly places to eat) and the rooms were immaculate. (A major concern when traveling with young children.)

Our visit at the Admiral made our 4th of July mini-vaca very pleasurable.

Room Tip: Try the breakfast in the motels restaurant....great value, good service, very convenient.

Wildwoods is an amazing place to take your familty. period. I found the motel rooms (which are two bedrooms) to smell like moldy motel - not good. From there the AC did not work at all - they kept saying it was out of thier control. For the rooms we give a failing grade D- because of these reasons. But the outside is great. great pool. nice mini-golf for kids. ping pong. 2 BBQs for eveyone to share. near bike rentals. This would be a B+. But it is far from the boardwalk (aka a good 40 min slow walk or 30 min fast walk - not the 10 - 15 minutes they say). D- for that false expectation. We love Wildwoods, and will go back...but not to this motel. The hotel across from our room is also called "ocean view" - hence we did not really have a view of the ocean.

, Manager at Admiral Resort Motel, responded to this review, 9 July 2012
I extend my apology to all Admiral guests who experienced our mutual headache of replacing a central air conditioning system during a period of high temperatures. Happily the contractor has finished and our motel rooms are cooled to comfortable levels. The new chillers are performing as promised and our standard cooling temperature has been restored. Also, this reviewer is accurate that it was out of our control. The night they checked in, the coast experienced severe thunderstorms, which shut off our system completely for eight hours. We were able to have it up and running again in the morning, but lasting damage had been done. The system was able to function at 50%, which would attribute to the guest discomfort. We did explain that the system was being repaired. It took several days to resume 100% capacity. I do regret that this was not communicated properly to this guest.

This reviewer is correct that we are one mile from the southern end of the boardwalk, (approx. a 15-20 minute walk) and we do view the ocean across a city park. (we are on the west side of Ocean Ave.). Our booking agents are clear about communicating our location. I regret that the person who reserved for this large family did not advise everyone in the party about choosing a large unit in a residential district versus a smaller room near the boardwalk.

Our family of 4 just got home from an awesome stay here. The room was great, clean, and roomy. Loved that it had 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The staff was really nice and kept it very clean. It was a great value too! The amenities were great, the pool is large and heated, the mini golf was well kept and not run down like others I've seen at hotels, the grills are great, play area well kept, they are definitely a great family oriented motel. Housekeeping was very impressive as well. You can tell they have a lot of pride in keeping the motel up. The breakfast restaurant had really good food at a good price and was very convenient. The location was great, right across from the park, one Motel back from the beach with ocean views, and not too far from the boardwalk. This was our first stay here and we will definitely be returning. Thank you Admiral for making our vacation great and worry free!

I took the family down to Wildwood/Cape May to see the horseshoe spawning in the Delaware bay. While there we also took a nice bike ride along the bike path and boardwalk. Staying at the Admiral hotel was very pleasant and inexpensive. The staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable and clean. We stayed in an efficiency (with kitchen) and all the basic necessities were already there. Pots, pans, dishes, flatware, cooking utensils, strainer, dish drain, dish soap etc... What ever else I needed, I could get from the lobby with a small deposit. The pool deck was larger than I expected with nice new green carpet. And everything on the deck was in the process of getting a new coat of paint even though the unpainted stuff didn't look that worn yet. It was cool and windy so the family only swam for about 10 minutes, but the pool was very clean. The stairwells open to the pool deck and were not creepy at all. There is one elevator right near the lobby.
My ONLY complaint with this hotel, was the A/C was not working. But, it was nice and cool outside, so just opening the window let in enough breeze that we did not suffer a bit. Hopefully they get that taken care of before it gets hot out.
We had fun and plan to go again but for a longer stay next time!

We came here last summer with our 2 kids and had a really good time. We stayed for a week. Our room was clean and had enough space to accomdate us all. The motel is very family oriented with a big play area- including mini-golf,pool etc. There is even a large grill so we could cook our own burger and hot dogs (steaks for the wife and I) some nights. The kids loved it! The motel is about a 1/2 block from the beach and after a long day its great to be able to come back to a clean room and a refeshing pool. The restaurant in the motel is very good-simple breakfast food- just what you want at the beach. I highly recommned staying at the Admiral. We have already booked our stay for this summer. (Funny story- our kids asked if we could go back this winter bc the weather was so nice!)
