“A very nice place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2010

Our room was very clean and very confortable. Air conditionner and refrigerator noisy but still with a few... coffee..the noise was gone. We where on the third floor which was perfect for us because on the ground floor and first floor it was some sort of a daily ''party going on''. But, by the way , this is absolutely normal for young kids and older ones afterall it's holidays...We had ocean and pool view, just great. Very little walking distance from the beach so we could have lunch in the room, which is also great. Refrigerator, oven, micro wave all available. ACME five minutes away. Beginning of boardwalk aprx 500 feet from Motel. Without any doubt, if we return to Wildwood next year we will try to go to the Gondolier Motel. Owners should refresh their web site, because it's well nicer than than what appears on it.

We spent 4 nights recently at the Gondolier!! The BEST location you could even imagine. Nice area, steps from the beach, and 2 blocks (or so) from the beginning of the boardwalk. The atmosphere is very family oriented, but my husband and I felt it would also be a great place to go back as a couple or better with a few couples. The owners and staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. The pool was a good size and very clean! They spontaneously threw a party for the entire hotel one evening with complementary food and drinks and an extremely enjoyable piano player/singer. Even my 15 and 19 year old had a great time at this event!! Keep in mind though that the rooms are no frills. It is a bit "dated". The double beds we slept in were not the most comfortable, but we slept fine anyway. However it was quite clean, which you can't beat. Room issues are very minimal and all the positives beat that out!! I am already working on my husband to go back here next summer!!! Loved it!!!!

This was one of the worst vacation stays we ever had. We rented what was advertised as a two room suite for 239/night when we arrived the room was nothing we expected it was very small the couch had stains all over it the refrigerator was rusty. The worst was when you turned on the AC a horrible smell came out of it. I'm pregnant and just being in the room for five minutes with the smell made me sick. We requested another room and we got a regular hotel room down a hallway where at the end what I think was the laundry room was located. There were garbage cans stored up and down the hallway in front of our room, so we got a lesser room and they still charged us the suite rate. I wouldn't recommend anyone ever stay at this hote.

We just came back from this place. We have stayed at Aquabeach, Adventurer Inn, WatersEdge and I have to say this place is the best out of the others. I would go back.

The new owners did a great job redecorating and updating the property. The rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable and enjoyable! We were with a party of eight and had a wonderful time. We even had live entertainment poolside with free Pizza! AND we already booked our rooms for next year!!!

This is such a great motel! The first time I came with my parents, the first thing we noticed was the location. It's less then a minute walk from the beach and boardwalk. The room was a fairly good size and clean. Our room had a full kitchen, a living room, and a seperate bedroom with two full size beds. The pool was a good size and was heated. When we stayed, they actually had live music in the pool area!
We had such a good time! Everytime we go to wildwood, we only stay in this motel. It's worth the extra couple bucks.

We had an excellent time at the Gondolier in Wildwood, NJ. My 10 year old did not want to come home. She was in the heated pool quite a bit. The people who run the Gondolier are very helpful, friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home and comfortable. It is kept very clean and maintained real well.

The location is perfect. The beach, boardwalk and bike path are right outside your door. We were there before and we will keep going back.
