“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

Beach colony was built 50+ years ago one of the original motels down there. If your looking for a 5 star hotel with room service dont go here easy as that. Its a family run motel and lola does a great job the rooms are not dirty there just as they were in the 50s again is you dont like old school things dont come here also its a dog friendly motel if you own a dog you know its nearly impossible to clean up every single last hair oh wow you found a dog hair get over it. And 2 blocks from the beach there gonna be wear and tear inside and out. Kim the receptionist is great and willing to help you in anyway and lola is also great i know my 80 year old grandmother would not be able to run a motel still. I brought my dog here and we had a great time so close to the beach i will definitely come back.

We had a very bad experience at this motel with the owner and with housekeeping.
We have pet so we decided to go on my husband's birthday at Wildwood, I chose this hotel because I saw that the rooms looks very good at the internet, and also because the add claimed to have cleaning service, none of this exists, the rooms smell terribly, they are furniture with poor and old moviliario and the worst of all the owner does not face if you have a complaint, she has no permanent staff, Kim the person we talked at the reception said that she was a friend who came to help the owner as she is an older person and crazy too. In resume we looks at the room, feel the smell and run away, we could not stay there, we wanted to talk to the owner Lola because we want our deposit back and she refused to talk to us, we went back the next day, nothing happened, and finally we decided to lose the money and enjoy the weekend as planned. We don't recommend this hotel at all as many code violations and we believe that the place should be shut down !

Has to be the worst place to stay in Wildwood Crest.
Rented 2 rooms for 9-21-12 and 9-22-12, based on there website photos and description.
Rooms look as if they have not been updated in more than 30 years. Old scratched, dented, cracked furniture, poorly spray painted ancient refrigerator that was rusted and filthy inside. Walls were stained and dirty, floors were filthy, would not walk on barefoot, may catch something you don't want. Bathroom was disgusting as well, soap-dish had residue from previous guest, a rusted sink with pubic hair left behind.
Not located on beach as advertised either.
Walked into the 2 rooms and walked right out, never even unpacked cars. Told the owner and her apparently only employee we were leaving due to the deplorable conditions and were refused our money back. Lola, the scary looking owner, trying to look as she did about 30 years ago (based on old photos on wall in the office), now looks like a Halloween scarecrow. She was the rudest, most non negotiable, worst excuse for a business owner I have ever met. After she suggested I leave, her employee Kim was good enough to tell us that, Lola, has dementia and tends to lose it quite often. Kim was much more helpful but limited to what she can do.
We found another motel and had to dispute the payment with our credit card companies.
As a service to others I will be posting this review along with photos to, Trip Advisor, Where and other websites as well as contacting the town to let them know of the deplorable conditions, possible code violations and fraudulent advertising.
Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this place, in my opinion they should be shut down.

Room Tip: Best tip I can give is, DON"T STAY HERE, go one block north to the Admiral, they accept pets as...

Let's face most of the motels in Wildwood Crest were built in the 50s and 60s, it is hard to make them perfect without rebuilding them. Our stay was pleasant, as was the staff and guests. Our 3 kids and 2 dogs had a great time. It's close to the beach and resturants. FIrst time we took our pets on a vacation. I would stay there again.

WE went down for Memorial day 255.00 for 3 nights. I paid 200.00 on my credit card to hold the room. Well a month and a half later they again billed me $200.00 after I only placed the on hold and paid cash when I got there. Its been months and now I am trying to see if the Federal trade commission can help me get my money back. Lola will not speak with me. They do not even have a record of me staying there. New Jersey needs to investigate them and close them down.

We always travel with 1 of our dogs & at Beach Colony your dog is not only accepted but welcomed. The staff are incredibly friendly & helpful. All types of dogs are welcome, we have a 5 lb chihuahua but there were all different types of dogs, Lhasa apsis, German Shepherds, boxers, etc. The majority of the guests r dig people so a super friendly atmosphere.
The rooms are clean & big. I loved that the floors were tiled & not carpeted. The pool is a generous size with lots of chairs & tables.
The hotel is located on a beach block but not directly on the beach, there is a condo between the motel & the beach, but there r 2 rooms that do have a beach view. We stayed in a room on the poolside & we were very happy. My parents stayed in 1 of the rooms with a beach view & they were happy with their room.
Beach Colony is your typical Jersey shore motel, it has been around for a while, so if u want a big brand new hotel this is not the place for u. But if u r a dog loving person who likes to travel with your dog & be around other dog people then this is the place for you. U & your dog will have a fantastic stay.

We stayed here because of our pet (seems there are not to many pet friendly hotels in Wildwood and why not!!!) Since it was the beginning of the season, we got to pick our room (Rm 29)
Was nice, clean, Lola seemed nice as well. Always said Hi to us. Yes we did have an issue of paying cash for the room so not sure what that is all about. Never heard of a hotel not taking credit cards (just in case you are not happy you can get your charges back) Close to beach as well. We will try to stay here again in August to see if all the bad reviews are true. We thought Lola was a kick. Yes she is on in age but was very nice to us and trying her best to keep this hotel going!
