“Another great Summer!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

I wrote a great review on this place last year, and I had to give another great review this year as well! This is my second time staying at the Imperial 500 Motel - and love it even more! This will definitely be our destination every Summer!!
Great location - you can walk to the beach!
Very clean Motel - it is amazing how clean this motel is - the staff work very hard in keeping this place spotless! The owner, himself, you can see out by the pool and outside area, working very hard cleaning everything, picking up every little crumb he sees, keeping the pool spotless and beautiful as well as the rest of the outside area of the Motel!
Very friendly, family owned - they are very approachable and willing to help out in any way they can! We even had a little problem two days ago - my husband dropped his wallet in the parking spot and we headed off to lunch. When we got to the restaurant, he realized his wallet was missing. He drove back to the Motel, and the owner called out to him, to let him know his wallet was found by his own honest son. Thankfully his son found it, otherwise any passerby on the road might have picked it up!
The motel has a great atmosphere and very family oriented!
Highly recommend this place!

First trip here and hotel was clean, well maintained, salt water pool was great. It felt very family like and safe, and well very comfortable. Beach is right there across the street and being a picky guy I was impressed with how clean and for me also very quiet which is a must. The staff was busy from morning till night keeping the place tip top and it showed. I love it. Good parking, pool tables and arcade. Ice cream truck almost every hour on the hour. Well maintained elevator and carts for luggage. And you ready for the best part or the cherry on top? The price was nice, very nice! We have tried a lot of places in Wildwood and before we left this year the whole family agreed we are back again next year and we are staying right here at the Imperial! Thanks Imperial for making our vacation A+ !

Room Tip: they have regular rooms and efficiencies so check it all out!

The guy who runs this place is great! Very accommodating. Super nice!

We had a large family reunion and they really took care of us. Everything was clean and well maintained. The hotel is super close to the beach, and in walking distance of some really good restaurants. We all loved the pool and the extra amenities (Shuffle Board, Pool Tables, Arcade Games, Out Door Grills).

We were able to cook food, hang by the pool, play games like we owned the place! Best of all I'd say there were 5 other Family Reunions all going on at the same time and the owner and his staff made sure each family had the same experience! There didn't seem to be any conflicts of any kind, that I could tell and that's indicative of a well run establishment.

Room Tip: Different layout / floor plan of each room per floor. So floor two was a standard layout, Two beds...

Had a great stay at this very family oriented motel.
Jimmy made sure we had everyting we needed and then some.
He even went out of his way to arange a 12 seating at Dogtooth Pub so we all could watch the US National team compete in the World Cup.Great seats, great service and great food! Thank you Jimmy.
Close to the beach and anything else you could desire.
The kids loved the pool and game room and that meant that the parents loved just sitting around talking.
Would recomend this place to anyone!!

We just came back from a week-long family reunion at the Imperial 500 and it could not have been more perfect. The hotel, which is family run, was sparkling clean and comfortable in a down-the-shore kind of way. The owners went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and helped us secure a large table at the Dogtooth Grill (5 stars as well!) which helped a lot. The motel is just across the park from the beach, and we rented bikes a block away. There is a great playground at the park but the kids really never left the motel pool but it did look nice.
An unexpected bonus was that the hotel faces north and all the balconies are shaded in the afternoon which was heaven after a day at the beach. We were a large group, and there were several other large family groups there as well, but everyone was chill and laid back and by the end of the week it felt like all the other guests were family as well.
A note to other families looking for a reunion motel: last October we visited several in the same area as the Imperial 500 and came away with mixed feelings. We figured out quickly which ones strongly discourage children at the pool, which ones are party central, and which ones have lower standards of cleanliness. The Imperial 500 was the last motel we visited and within five minutes of the tour we knew we had found our place. We could not have chosen better.

Wonderful owners and wonderful accomodations! The service was top notch and the room was better than expected. I don't know where the people who gave the negative reviews stayed but it definitely wasn't at the Imperial 500. Thank you for a wonderful stay! :-D

My family stays here every year, and it's for a good reason. This motel is owned and operated by the sweetest family and they take care of business. We will return here for our family reunion every summer!!!
