We visited mid week in September in order to have a less crowded experience at the shore during Covid, and also to do so during the shoulder season. This ended up being well achieved. The hotel only had about 8 cars in the lot, like most of the oceanside motels, and the crest, the beach, and wildwood boardwalk were easy to navigate without being close to others. Our room as pretty standard, for the Monterey. It is a no frills motel, with its primary advantage of being right on the each. Furnishings vary by condo, as they are privately owned, but basic furnishings and condition I would say. Housekeeping was fine. We forgot to tell the desk we did not want daily service, so we just worked with the staff as they arrived and exchanged towels, had the garbage removed, and that was it. (I do a "Covid" cleaning when I arrive at any hotel these days) The staff this year was excellent. A change since we were last here, before Covid. Lisa (I think her name is), was fantastic. Very friendly and helpful!! We enjoyed some fantastic weather, great views from our deck and just peace and quiet, which is what we came for. Be aware that many places are closed at this time of year (mid September), or short staffed this year due to Covid and I guess people just don't seem to want to work... anywhere... it's really too bad... We did take advantage of the kitchenette in the unit. We ate 1 or 2 breakfasts in and same with lunch. One thing in our unit, though, the windows did not open. There weren't any screens on them and it looked like they were blocked from opening anyway. I much prefer a hotel room where windows can be opened, especially when the only window is in the front...... we could not get any fresh air in the bedroom in the rear of the unit. We had to open front door to get fresh air period.... that is really my only negative. We went to the Lobster House one day for a mid-afternoon Lobster tail treat out on their deck and also a few hotels down from Monterey, (going towards the boardwalk), we found the Palm Royal Hotel. Here we had a fantastic breakfast one day, out on the outdoor patio, and an average dinner one night there as well, also outside. We will return to Monterey, again in the shoulder season, to enjoy all these things again!! Thanks for a nice visit!

Please allow me to start by saying, I have visited this place before. I stayed here in 2011 and it was great. This time, I stayed for 3 days and I landed in a unit that was the worse ever. I paid good money for the following: The shower did not work The tub was clogged The bedrooms had actual carpet (mold collecting fabric carpet on a beach resort) The vents for air conditioning were falling off The false ceiling was falling off The air conditioner was set at 73, you could not set it lower Housekeeping would refuse to mop the areas that had mosaic tiles (kitchen and living room) And last but not least, my 8 year old had his first taste of racism by a guest in the resort. I will never visit this dump again.

Each unit is furnished/updated by the individual owners. We stay in room 206...lovely, all the comforts of home! Sandy, Ozzie, Louis and Jenna are the pillars of keeping the resort very clean!!! The only reason I did not rate Monterey a five is due to the internet connection...seriously needs to be upgraded!

We booked the Monterey Resort as somewhere to stay when we were visiting Wildwood from the UK for The Race Of Gentlemen. We had read the previous reviews and were slightly concerned but decided we would still use the Motel for our stay and I am very pleased we did. The Motel is very clean and the staff / guests / owners are very very friendly and helpful. The Motel is quiet and peaceful as it is away from the main areas but that is what we were looking for. You can leave your room and be on the beach in jsut a few minutes which is brilliant and the beaches around Wildwood are meticulously maintained and cared for. We had no problems at all during our stay and would certainly use the Monterey again when we visit.

So having read all of the reviews for this motel some positive and quite a few negative I can honestly say I was very apprehensive about staying here .......However we decided to give it the benefit of doubt and try it, so when we arrived the ladies on reception were nice and friendly checked us in without any issues or problems there were 2 dogs in reception which were also friendly (I’m a dog person so this wasn’t an issue for me at all) our room /apartment was okay clean and tidy the other couple who we were travelling with there place was a bit nicer, the other guests were lovely especially the couple we sat talking too on sat night they had owned there apartment for 33 years so it was really nice to chat to them as they very knowledgable about the area, there is a noise ban in the motel after 11pm which is great and the pool and around it was clean and so was the communal areas. Its quite a way from the centre of wildwood so walking to it is a long trek if your not up to walking a car or transport is definitely needed. The beach view from the motel is fantastic. The only reason I haven’t given it a 5/5 is because there wasn’t a lift/elevator so if you have a lot of luggage its quite a trek to the 3rd floor other than that it was absolutely fine.
