We think we have the best beach resort-motel in the Wildwoods, but don’t take our word for it! See what our guests are saying about the VIP Family Motel.

      Can't say enough good things about VIP Motel in Wildwood Crest! My family & extended family had a great experience while enjoying the shore. It had everything you could want for a beach getaway! VIP Motel is very centered on families with children, plenty of play areas & a beautiful pool. The entire property is well maintained. The rooms are well kept & very clean. Plenty of extra amenities at no additional cost - movie night, hot dog day, etc. Staff is excellent, always making sure that you're comfortable during your stay & they go the extra mile to accommodate any needs you may have. They couldn't have named this place any better, you truly feel like a VIP during your stay. More

      My boyfriend and I decided on a last minute trip to Wildwood for the 4th, and we found a great price at this hotel. We were arriving after office hours, and Alethea was so accommodating. She said she would go to the room and turn on the air for us since it was such a hot day for when we arrived. We stayed on the 2nd floor. The room is clean and perfect for a couple or a family with small kids. We stayed in a room with 2 double beds. My only complaint about the room (albeit very minor) is that there aren't any plugs near the bedside table for charging phones, etc, (bring long cables and a multiple port USB port) and the air conditioner was right over one of the beds, which was noisy through the night, but I made it work. We had a small issue with the shower head leaking which was immediately addressed, and which I was grateful for. The hotel itself is very vintage, and has a classic Jersey shore vibe. You can tell they care about the cleanliness and upkeep of the hotel. It is not your modern shell of a hotel, but it is clean and inviting- like staying at a rental house. The hotel is about a 5ish minute drive to the boardwalk, and Diamond Beach. It is about a 25ish minute walk to the boardwalk, but was wayyy to...

    The hotel is about a 5ish minute drive to the boardwalk, and Diamond Beach. It is about a 25ish minute walk to the boardwalk, but was wayyy to hot to be doing that. The hotel is also one block away from the beach, which was great!

    I want to particularly thank Alethea, for the food recommendations (check out the Doo Wop Coffee Shop 2 blocks away) and her hospitality, and to Melissa for helping to answer some questions about 4th of July activities.

    Overall, this family owned motel is one I'm sure I'll visit again. Thank you all for your warm hospitality! More

      We spent 3 nights at VIP, it was our first trip to Wildwood Crest. Location is great, the Crest is quiet and unfussy and not crowded, yet it was a short drive to Wildwood boardwalk (or a 10 minute bike ride) and a short drive to Cape May. Hotel was clean and staff went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful. Someone was pretty much constantly cleaning the grounds. The pool and playground was a huge hit with my son and the other kids visiting. The patio area with grills was convenient and comfortable. In the area was a short walk to grab coffee at a nearby hotel, a couple of restaurants to get breakfast, Centennial park and the beach was across the street. I cannot wait to return next summer!

      We love staying at the VIP! The pool, playground, grill area and onsite games make it the perfect location for families to relax and have a great time. The hotel is perfectly located across the street from the beach and the park where there is often live music during warm months. I've been coming to the VIP since I was a teenager and while I've always appreciated the spacious rooms and separate bedroom, I was especially impressed this year by the renovations in the kitchen area and the bathroom. We already booked our dates for next year!

      The V.I.P is a wonderful place to stay. Very family oriented and extremely friendly. Wonderful experience. Definitely recommend. This was my first time staying and now it’s the only place we’ll stay..

      I've been going to Wildwood for the past 24 years and this is one of the best motels on the island. The rooms are amazing, very spacious. Especially the VIP suites. They have an amazing pool and a cute play set for the kids. And they're only a block away from the beach. The view from the balcony is incredible. Theres no other motel I'd rather stay at.

      My family and I returned to VIP once again for our yearly getaway. The hotel was great with even more improvements from our last visit. The staff is amazing and the hotel is so kid friendly. Our boys love it and it’s the highlight of our summer. This is the place to stay with your family, just a few yards from the beach and boardwalk. We’ll see you next year.

      The VIP Motel is a cozy Motel in the Crest, perfect for families on a budget. We had an updated room with a large refrigerator, microwave, K-cup machine, 2 burner gas stove and Murphy bed. Rooms are adequate size for sleeping and there are plenty of drawers for your things. What is nice about this motel, is the fact many people leave their doors open and sit outside and chat. My kids made friends with other children and had so much fun playing on the large wooden ship and swing set that is adjacent to the rooms. The pool is very clean and plenty of seating for everyone. There are grills available for use in the patio. Parking is directly in front, super convenient.
    All of the staff at VIP are helpful and friendly. Just remember, the ocean is a farther walk than you think.

      We stayed at the VIP Family Motel this summer. It was a fantastic stay. The rooms are clean and updated. Our boys loved playing on the Pirate ship and playground. We are planning on coming back next year for sure!

      We had a great time at the VIP! My kids loved the playground, sandbox and pirate ship more than the beach! The pool was wonderful and never felt crowded. Our room was very clean and everyone was so friendly! Great location. I reccomend it highly, specially for families with small children!

      So when my daughter and i stayed here, there were some rooms that were upgraded, and some that were not. In the website ad, it featured "upgraded rooms", however it not say that this was only some fo them. Ours was not. It was a basically clean room, but dated. The best feature for this hotel are the outdoor amenities, especially for an extended stay situation. This includes the outdoor play area, pool and close location to the beach.

      I had a very nice time. Location is one block from the beach and all rooms have a visual of the beach. Nice Location. I had a lovely time and would definitely go back. The pool was heated and clean. I enjoyed myself and speaking with all visitors. The motel is family oriented and very calm and relaxing atmosphere.
