"a true "shore" experience"
location was great, hotel staff more than accommodating, free bike rentals for the boardwalk was fabulous and rooms were clean and comfy! We will stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to many popular spots, such as Cape May."
Staff was very helpful and personable. Were able to answer questions and provided us with whatever we needed, including bikes to ride along the boardwalk at Wildwood.Genuine Expedia guest review
Whole family had a wonderful time! Will totally stay here again. The kids loved the pool and hot tub. 1 block away from the beach and boardwalk. 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.

"The Airstream Land Yacht trailer was awesome!"
My daughter and I spent a night and really enjoyed the experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool and common areas were great. And we were just a block away from the boardwalk!Genuine Expedia guest review
Close to Boardwalk and Beach. Everything we needed was within walking distanceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We choose this hotel from the website. The reviews were correct. We have two small children and this was the perfect hotel for us. Loved the free bikes for a morning ride on the boardwalk!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We ordere d a room with 2 double beds and when we got there it was a small trailer in the parking lotGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing! Stay here!!!"
This experience was so great! My daughter and I did not want to leave. We will be back again and again!! We are already trying to figure out our next trip dates. It is so close to the beach and they have complimentary bikes for guest use. The staff were all very kind and helpful. We stayed in one of the trailers........my daughter thought it was the […] greatest thing ever. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good time was had by all!!!"
Great hotel, would definitely go back again. Icing on the cake was the staff!!! Everyone was pleasant and helpful with a smile on their face. Special thanks out to Jackie!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Always a great time at the Starlux"
We stay at the Starlux every year, it's a great little motel. Very well managed, we never have any issue. The rooms are always clean and the amenities are fantastic for a motel of this sizeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Loved the experience"
We were very close to the board walk and beach. The airstream was retro but not old or outdated. It was so much fun and more comfortable than you would think for a small space. We are very pleased that wechoose to stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great place great employees"
What a great place, the employees are great and helpful. Close to boardwalk. The atmosphere was great, pool was warm and clean. Great to have bikes that were available and be able to grill. We will be staying again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Step Back into the 70's and ENJOY!"
Clean, comfortable and funky hotel that is affordable and SO close to the boardwalk and ocean! You can hear it from your balcony. It's like stepping into an episode of the Jetson's or maybe Love American Style (for those of you old enough to remember LOL!) Loved it and it will be my go to place for the Jersey Shore! The staff we met were all very polite […] and so helpful. They answered your questions before you could ask them! The pool was clean, warm and inviting. They put fresh water in the hot tub and we spent a few hours enjoying it. The bikes! Yes they offer guests bikes for FREE to ride on the boardwalk. You can rent one for a pretty penny or use the hotels. Very nice touch. If you stay here you can't go wrong. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyed the stay"
Stayed one night while on business. I think its a great hotel for the price and location in comparison to others in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel !!!"
Can't think of anything bad to say about this hotel and my experience there. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the front desk lady Jackie. My room was nice and clean. The hotel was in a great location and in good condition. When i return to Wildwoods in the future, i will be staying at this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Block from Boarwalk"
We stayed at the hotel for business and my husband and 2 kids came along. It was a great location, 1 block from the boardwalk & 'Wildwoods" sign and in walking distance to restaurants. The hotel room was very small, but we just spent the night there. Having a microwave and fridge were great with 2 small children. For the price and location we can't […] complain. Also, it was great to have the little breakfast nook in the morning. Finally, although we checked out of our hotel early, we walked the beach in the AM and were allowed to keep our car in the lot until we actually left that day.

"Retro design, modern conveniences, great location"
They've done a full renovation of this hotel so that it'd feel at home in an Austin Powers movie. Location is just blocks from the boardwalk, and the staff is friendly. Not the best view from the balcony, but you can see the ocean and the "Wildwoods" sign, so really no complaints there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"If you like the '50's, you'll love the Starlux Hot"
What fun to be in a truly "retro" hotel. Loved being back in 1956.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A good chge odscenery"
The Star Lux is a DooWop Motel, and it lives up to the genre very well. The room was a visual treat. The room was very clean, and must have been re-done recently, everything was immaculate. The bed was super comfortable. This is the second time we stayed there, and would recommend it to anyone, especially anyone into DooWop or Googie style. (think the […] old Jetson's cartoon space age style) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One block off boardwalk and beach"
The hotel was relatively empty since it was the Thanksgiving weekend and most shops and sights are closed in Wildwood, including everything on the boardwalk except the fudge shop. A complimentary breakfast buffet was included. It probably would have been a lot of fun in the summer!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The gentleman that checked us in was extremely nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable.The stay was wonderful and I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice family place"
We stayed only one night in Nov 2012 bc we had an event at Convention Center 3 blocks away. It was quiet bc of the time of year. Very clean. Easy check in and out.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very 70's in appearance"
good for a quick get away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel has a very nice '70's vibe. Linens on the bed was very nice. Would definitely recommend to othersGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun Walk Down 1970's Memory Lane!"
We found hotel personnel friendly and helpful. The property was well-maintained and almost immaculate, and the retro decor was great fun. We even had a lava lamp in our room! This place might be a rowdy zoo in high tourist season, but when we were there in off-season, it was quiet, mellow and relaxing. A great experience!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Spot to Vacation"
It was the Best really really enjoyed it the staff was great all of them they worked the weekend of October 19 to October 21, 2012 they were great, hope to see you guys 2013.Genuine Expedia guest review
My friends and I stayed here during the off-season (not summer), but I doubt that it's any different during the peak tourism times. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and in great condition, and it's right across the street from the beach and in walking distance of many restaurants and shops (some of which are even open year rou […] nd!).

"Very cute getaway"
The staff was excellent and VERY accommodating. There were bicycles on a first come basis if you wanted to ride around the area. We were there for the 50's celebration and it's an easy walk from the Starlux to the Convention Center. Would love to come back again....and this is the place we'd stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Incredible deal at a fun place with great staff"
We loved this place! Even though we visited Wildwood in the off season, we found plenty to do for the couple days of our stay. The Starlux was the perfect place. It had everything we needed for a ridiculously low price. They work hard to keep this place clean and looking great. The staff, esp Jackie at the front desk, were very helpful and accommod […] ating.

""A Blast From The Past""
We were very happy with the cleanliness of the room. Everything smelled clean and fresh. We stayed there to be close to the Convention Center but it was close to everything. The hotel offered bikes if you didn't care to walk. The pool and hot tube were crystal clear eventhough it was in October but the weather was still warm enough to enjoy a little […] swim. There was a large room to gather if you wanted to meet with your group. The staff was very helpful and the continental breakfast was great with coffee, tea, OJ, apple juice, bagels, pasteries and muffins. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location, fun kitschy decor"
Great location right near the Wildwoods sign and convention center. Hotel staff was very accommodating. We weren't able to check in until 2 but it was a busy weekend. Nice free breakfast in the morning- coffee, muffins, juice, bagels. My family went during Wildwood's Fabulous Fifties weekend in October and this hotel was perfect!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous Off-season Getaway"
This is a first rate "motel"! Love the 50's style make over with modern amenities built in. Perfectly situated on the quieter, more serene edge of Wildwood, one block from the beach with a lovely view of the ocean and Wildwood boardwalk sign. We had an end suite on the top floor that was perfectly comfortable, well appointed and QUIET- which was awesome […] considering this was my husband and my first trip alone in years. Our bed was one of the most comfortable beds we have EVER slept in (more so than most of the 5 star hotels I have frequented)- complete with luscious down comforter and pillows covered in white cotton dobby. We were in town for a wedding, so we had little time to take advantage of all the hotel perks (like biking on the boardwalk, bbqs and the beach), but we did manage a dip in the hot tub and HEATED OUTDOOR POOL, both of which were heated to the optimal temperature contrasting the cool 65 degree Sunday morning. What a joy! We will certainly be back for a longer stay next year, with family in tow! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
One block from the boardwalk, Super clean room with big bathroom. Really liked the nostalgia of the 70's. Knowledgible staff. Jacquie was a wealth of info on the front desk. We will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
could not have been a more pleasant experience. we booked the smaller airstream. self, husband, 3 year old grandson - just right size. If you have older kids you will need a different trailer or room as there is no privacy door to section off the bedroom from the living room, makes changing clothes a bit trickyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Extremely clean. Friendly service. We stayed in the Airstream & that was cool. No complaints whatsoever. Will stay there again-no question!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"AirStream was awesome!"
The StarLux is a lovely hotel with friendly staff. I stayed in one of the two AirStream travel trailers and I loved it! My parents used to take our family on vacation by travel trailers so this was a blast from the past. The AirStreams have been refurbished and so look pretty true to their original condition - though I have never been in one before. […] I went off-season (last week) so there weren't many people in the hotel or nearby. There is a diner nearby and lots of other restaurants and night spots (bars) so there is probably alot to do nearby in the summer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not only was the hotel in great retro shape, the owners/managers paid attention to fine detail with top of the line toilietries, towels, and bedding. The property was very clean, the pool, very well taken care of. Housekeeping staff pleasant and thorough.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very close to beach and many attractions also"
Air streamer camper was different, liked the fact that there was basically one other room(camper) in the area. I believe next time we will stay at the same hotel,but try a regular room. As far as service, can't complain at all -- staff was very nice. Close to the beach/boardwalk and swimming pool at hotel was nice. Sure I would stay here again without […] a doubt.

"Best so far..."
I've stayed at 5 hotels/motels in Wildwood in the last 4 years, and this one is definitely the best!!! My only issues would be the distance from the main areas of the boardwalk, and the beds are not very comfortable. The staff is very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach, but poor customer service"
Very UNPROFESSIONAL costumer service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"back to the 60's"
The hotel was straight out of the 60's in terms of decor and amenities. Not bad but a little strange. Staff was friendly and it's close to the Wildwood boardwalk. Several 60' style diners around too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sleepless in Wildwood"
The Hotel is located close to the beach if that's what your interested in . But the trade off is, it is also located close to 2 streets with heavy traffic. We were up most of the night with the sound of cars , trucks and motorcycles. people walking by in the evening and late hours were also easily heard through the walls of the ground level, 2 room […] suit we had. The rooms were clean and would have been OK if the Hotel was located somewhere else. We would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"in walking distance of boardwalk"
great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
""Jetsons" style in the beach block"
Wildwood's "doo-wop" motels are mostly diamonds in the rough. But the Starlux is a gem, polished to a high shine. From the signage to the fencing to the two-story lounge that soars next to the swimming pool, the Starlux screams Mid-Century Modern. And that theme continues inside, with funky patterned furniture, carpets, and wallpaper, as well as furniture […] that must have been custom-made to suit the style. Fortunately, the amenities are mostly modern—no dial phones here, although our yellow bath tub did look original. Our room was a bit small for two people, and while it could have slept four on two full-size beds, I don't know where they would have put all their stuff. This is a motel, so service is minimal, but cleanliness was beyond all question. By the way, that lounge I mentioned is worth a visit. It has a high-definition TV, but otherwise looks like it came out of a magazine spread circa 1961. If you're looking for hip style in Wildwood, the Starlux is your kind of place.

"Off Season Vacation"
The hotel was very nice and staff very friendly and helpful. I planned poorly and so most of the boardwalk venues were closed due to being off-season; however we made the most of it and the hotel was very attentive to our needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
