"Great place for family"
We stayed here as my daughter had a sporting event at the Wildwood convention center. It was within walking distance of the center and boardwalk. Rooms were clean and well stocked with a cute little kitchenette. Pool was nice and the staff was extremely friendly. They even offered for us to stay and use the pool after check out! I would stay there again.

"super cute hotel"
I chose this hotel because of the availability of multiroom suites. Our "room" consisted of a sitting area with sofabed, eating area, kitchenette, bedroom with 2 double beds and a bathroom. We were pleasantly surprised to find all areas to be ample size, clean, comfortable, in good working order, and well stocked. The bathroom amenities were from Philosophy, which is a favorite brand of ours and we considered a plus. The bed was one of the most lushly appointed and comfy beds I've encountered in a hotel. The rest of the areas were adorably appointed in a early 60's retro theme. The rest of the hotel did not offer much - there was a nicely heated outdoor pool and hot tub and a simple continental breakfast was offered - management made an effort to serve breakfast an hour early to accomodate the numerous guests they had that weekend that were attending an early competition at the nearby convention center. There is no restaurant or bar, but the surrounding neighborhood offers plenty of options. The hotels location is convenient to the beach, boardwalk and convention center - about a 10 minute walk to all. The management also allowed us to park at the hotel after we'd checked out, and invited us to come back after the competition to use the bathrooms at the hotel, even though we'd checked out. I found that to be extremely gracious. There is unfortunately a very noisy "party" hotel across the street - my only real negative opinion, and parking is limited.

"Great stay at a wonderful hotel."
I very recently stayed at starlux for 2 nights. They upgraded me to a suite room as I was celebrating my anniversary. The rooms are very colorful and appealing. It's different from the usual box rooms at small hotels. The staff was ultra friendly and very quick to check in and check out. The location is superb !!! Couldn't have asked for a better location. All in all, I would return back to stay here. Thumbs up.

We enjoyed our stay at the Starlux. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean. The only drawback was the location was a little noisy being in the "Heart" of Wildwood, which didn't bother our teenage daughter at all.

"A place to stay"
I think, if we went in the summer, it would have been better, not too many choices open for the kids to eat. The kids would have had something to do we were just a block from the board walk. But overall for somewhere to sleep for a night, if was fine and the hotel staff were GREAT!

Fun hotel- very clean and well-maintained. Great place to stay and take in the crazy DooWop architecture of Wildwood, and it's a quick trip down to Cape May. What's cooler than your own lava lamp in your room?!

"Boardwalk stay"
This is a funky little property stuck in a time warp; in a good way. It's a theme motel set in the funky late sixties to early seventies. The decor and architecture makes one think that this was one swingin' spot back in the day. It is nostalgic but not dated. It appears clean and well maintained with a clear intent to bring back those memories rather than forgotten and left to deteriorate. No more than 50 yards from the boardwalk on the main road into town from the GS Parkway it is between the pier and the convention center. I was in town for my last overnight stopover on business and would have stayed another night but the town was nearly deserted as the season is over. I'll be back to check it out in the summer, no doubt!

Wonderful place to stay. Very clean and comfortable ; plush towels that rival the high end hotels we've stayed at. Staff very friendly, and their pool is great as well. The overall atmosphere is pleasantly right out of the Jetsons and the 50s with a Lava lamp in the room and overall decor that had us waiting for George and Jane Jetson to greet us at check in.

Stayed at the Starlux hotel in Wildwood New Jersey, and I've got to say it was an overall pleasant experience. It's location can not be beat in Wildwood. You're a block away from the beach, the boardwalk, and all the things that make Wildwood a blast. The hotel is clean, tidy, has great features. Most importantly the staff was outstanding and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of.

"Even cuter than the pictures!"
The Starlux has gone to great lengths to ensure a complete Wildwood Doo Wop experience - from the retro architecture, mid-century furnishings, beautiful lounge overlooking the pool, great beach location and a lava lamp in every room. We stayed in one of the private Airstreams - and the whole set up is just too cute - right down to the lit tail lights and hanging lanterns. The staff is attentive, helpful and just simply very nice. Do take them up on the offer to borrow bikes or beach chairs. The whole place is very well kept and clean - you will not be disappointed - we think it is the coolest hotel in the whole area.

We loved that we could take beach buggies, chairs, umbrellas and anything you need free of charge. Was also able to take bikes to ride on the boardwalk. Staff was very helpful and accommodating as well. Rooms were small though- and they do have 2 trailers that are part of the hotel across the street- which seemed sketchy.

"Nice hotel, just steps from beach and boardwalk"
We got a one bedroom suite in this retro hotel which was very nice. They have tons of amenities -- many that we did not get to take advantage of. Their pool is nice and clean and wasn't overly crowded. The room was very spacious and clean, more than enough room for the four of us. Unlike many of the Mom-and-Pop hotels in Wildwood which have in-window air conditioning units, The Starlux was more modern and thus no musty smells. The only downside to the hotel was the lighting. Inside lighting in the evening was not terribly adequate. An outside light turned on at night outside the door to the room was terribly bright and with no room darkening shades/curtains could make it difficult to sleep. Otherwise we really enjoyed this hotel. Will definitely stay there again!

"“Wonderful stay!”"
We stayed here for 5 nites last week during our family's 1st trip to Wildwood, NJ. I'll summarize the pros and cons. Overall, a great stay. Pros: Heated pool to 80+ degree and hottub which I used almost everyday. This is the best amenities of this hotel. Hotel also provides complimentary bikes, beach umbrella and chairs (one of the few places that do) Clean room, thick large towels, shampoo/conditioner, hair dryer, coffee powder in the room Kitchenette is well equipped with microwave, large, new refrigerator, coffee maker (including decaf powder), toaster, utencils. I took all these for granted until I stayed at Sahara Motel. Close to Wildwood sign and close to boardwalk Bed are very comfortable, including the pull out sofa bed in the living room Cons: Front desk lady is nice but the one guy is not very friendly. Staff are mixed. Complimentary breakfast is very, very basic. Plain bagel and mini muffin, coffee and juice, nothing fancy No oceanview except a side view from our balcony Price is expensive relative to other motels in the area, especially for June which is a lower price season of summer

"Best Hotel in Wildwood"
I've been going to WWNJ all my life first with my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, and now with my husband and kids. We'd always stayed in the "typical" Wildwood motel- aging, bare neccessities, modestly priced. This time I decided to look for something a little different and I was so pleasantly surprised by the Starlux! The room was cute, comfy, clean. The elevator worked. The front desk staff were professional and helpful. The pool/hot tub area was clean, beautiful, and a lot of fun. Being walking distance to restaurants, the beach, and the boardwalk was a major plus, and the ice cream parlor across the street was a huge hit with my kids! We'll be going back to the Starlux for years to come!
