“HAD A GREAT TIME”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Management and staff were very helpful and worked hard to keep things clean and running right. Heated pool was nice, warm and clean, as was the grill area. Great king bed. Room was very clean every day. Guests from many cultures were friendly and respectful. It is a fun place. But, know what you are getting into: it's one of the 1950's Doo-Wop motels. They are truly a national treasure. My wife and I can stay wherever we want, but we especially love these types of places. There are many modern hotels and condos to rent if you can't deal with a box TV ( which worked great) and some less-than-modern rooms.

We arrived room was ready. Front desk clerk was nice. Got to the room...my son started to cry. The place is cleaned as well as can be expected...the carpets are filthy, the couch was visibly dirty and worn. On the up side the view was great, the bathroom looked clean, refrigerator clean, didn't stink too bad. Pool was crowded and cloudy. The sun deck was blocked off with other people laying out on it. ( did they pay extra? I don't know) even though I would never return here, if I had brought a large comforter to cover the couch and all new bedding and a runner for the floor. AND I was on a tight budget and wanted to be on the beach..this was the cheapest in a beautiful area. Across the street are new homes so the people that live around here take care of there properties. Better then central Wildwood. The only people to we afraid of are some of the guests here. Oh and right next to my room is the JUNK room for the hotel. Pics to follow.

Room Tip: Bring your own sheets and something to cover the sofa

We had booked rooms through a web based site and when we arrived at the hotel, the room was not available, we were not the only ones, another party were moved to a hotel down the street. The hotel are taking more bookings than they have rooms and then filling them up on a first come basis. not good news when you have travelled over 200 miles and then have to find somewhere else to stay.

Room Tip: check before you leave that they have the room and that they will keep it for you until the designat...

The Grenada is one of those old time Wildwood Crest Motels which has been there for generations. We stayed in Aug 2013 for a long weekend and stayed in Room 100, the King suite. A small apartment style room with a small front room with table, fridge, microwave and closet, then a small hallway with a bedroom with a view of the trash alley. The room seemed beat up (see the large hole in wall around the plug for air conditioner) and the towels for bathroom were in worse shape than the ones at my gym.

HOWEVER, you don't stay at the Grenada for the room.... location, location, location! The hotel is towards the end of Wildwood Crest where the beach is wide, clean, and wonderful. There is ample parking, so you can leave your beach stuff in your car, walk out in the morning, grab your chairs and hit the beach in a few minutes. We did not check out the pool, but there were families with small kids having a blast there.

Room Tip: Try to get something on the 2nd or 3rd floor... they have nice chairs outside and you can sit out an...

The hotel is right on the beach, which is beautiful, sandy, and very gradually slopes into the water. The quiet community of Wildwood Crest is perfectly situated between the noise and thrill of the Wildwood boardwalk and famouse Cape May.

The problem is the rooms, which have very odd configurations, chest of drawers in the LR instead of the BR, poorly placed electrical outlets and completely inadequate lighting. This would ok for a bargain basement $100 right on the beach--but not $267 a night.

I stayed at the Granada in July 2013 in room 214 Oceanfront. In my previous reviews I stated that the place was desperate for improvement and renovation, this stay was a bit improved. Looks like the room was touched up and I found it to be clean. Air conditioning was fine. Pool was clean. This is not a luxury hotel. It is a shore motel that is average. Its a very quiet part of Wildwood Crest. My personal experience with "management" and front desk were very pleasant. My husband and I have visited Wildwood almost every summer for 16+ years and we have always stayed at the Granada. We do not go with the expectation that we are staying at a Hilton and I certainly wouldn't keep returning if the place was a nightmare. I have attached pictures of the room. If I visit Wildwood next summer, I would most likely stay again.

Hotel was OK. Room layout was fine. Air conditioning worked very well. Great location (right on beach). Maintenance items not being kept up to date. Manager not especially friendly, although responsive.
