Hotel's Favorite
Our first time stay at the Adventurer Hotel in July 2020. We were so impressed with the cleanliness and the over care the staff handled extra precaution especially during this time. The rooms were very spacious for our family of 5. All of the beds were super comfy, which is always difficult to find. The balcony view was amazing. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The staff and the food at the hotel restaurant were both terrific. We couldn’t say enough good things about our stay. We already booked for next year! The location is great too, close to beach, boardwalk, restaurants etc. Thanks for a great experience and vacation!

Wildwood, New Jersey1 contribution
The Adventurer is a beautiful place! I have been coming to WW since 2000 with my children, having stayed in North Wildwood at two different (great) places there. Things change lol … and so I was on my own this year companion wise, work had me in an after peak time frame ~ so I chose The Crest, and The Adventurer. *This is an absolutely beautiful property, more of a hotel style. The decor is great (pictures of Wildwood are the primary focus) and the rooms are gorgeous ~ attention to EVERY detail is in place. The amenities are amazing … better than what you would expect (pool with room towel use, laundry, cardio room, in room kitchenette supplies, lobby, covered patios, sun decks, parking, and the on site restaurant). *It is a very clean property. *The staff is beyond wonderful ~ friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, kind. *The location is prime ~ ocean front, right at the entrance to the Boardwalk, and lots of other places close by; I had an ocean front room (my own personal preferred indulgence) but I can tell you that no room will disappoint you from the aspect of ‘view’. During my stay I had gorgeous weather, but if that were not the case, staying at The Adventurer would have been more than sufficient to make up for it. If you have the opportunity to stay here, please do! You will love it and have an enjoyable experience!

My family has been visiting Wildwood Crest for many years. My husband has been there every of his life-61 years. I joined in 40 years ago. Our children have been there with us 33 years and now my granddaughter is part of the tradition. We stayed at various places in the Crest over the years and find the Adventurer Inn to be the best family resort. The location, the room choices and friendly staff are just part of what keeps us going back. I have already made the 2022 reservation and look forward to our time there.

I can’t say enough about the Adventurer hotel in wildwood crest. The staff is truly amazing. You are greeted with a smile the second you walk in. Billy from Philly provides top-notch customer service. Everyone is so nice and accommodating and the environment is so laid-back, friendly and carefree. The hotel itself is very well-maintained and the rooms are clean and spacious. The beds are the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept on and you get a great nights sleep because there’s no noise late at night. The pool is beautiful and is open until 10 PM and at night they have color changing lights which make it light up so pretty. The second floor deck gives you a beautiful view of the ocean. The restaurant is conveniently located on the first floor and has great food and outdoor dining option to look at the ocean while you enjoy your breakfast. The location is superb. It is conveniently located close to the convention center and boardwalk. There are many great restaurants within walking distance and a bike rental right across the street. I have referred many friends here and they all love it. It’s the only place that I will stay in Wildwood. Thank you Adventurer for a great vacation! See you next year!
