Excellent beach motel! Immaculately clean. Staff very friendly and polite. Housekeepers timely and nice. Only drawback is the location is smack in the middle of dry Wildwood Crest so you have to drive to liquor store or take a long walk if you want to go to a restaurant with cocktails. Would definitely return!

Absolutely love this hotel. We checked in late and the manager met us at 10:30pm! so absolutely kind and friendly. The room was immaculate! Clean floors, sheets, bathroom and kitchen. The ocean view and super spacious balcony made relaxing after a long day so peaceful. Highly recommend! We will be back. Also, I’m a clean freak about hotels. I Always have been and since covid I’M even more obsessed with a clean room. This place was amazingly clean and I was so relaxed upon settling in.

A stay in an ocean side suite at the Lotus Inn is beautiful. You could note the great location, just across from the beach, a park, and bike rental that gets you all over Wildwood on the Wildwood Crest bike trail. You could proclaim the view from the private balcony that serves as backdrop for the whole suite. You could even just talk about the affordability. All of these things together still fail to convey the sense of relaxed simplicity that we walked away with. Judy at the front desk offered recommendations for local take out, extended our check out time as late as she could, and answered all my nerdy architect/environmentalist questions. If you want more from a stay at the beach, you may be missing what’s truly important about this island.

The Lotus Inn is great, set back from the beach in the quieter part of Wildwood. Hotel pool is great. Rooms are very clean, alittle dated but they do very well maintaining everything. Tiny upgrades like better quality towels and pillows would go a long way. Quick Uber ride to Morey’s pier which is alot of fun for the kids. Bicycle rental and beautiful park right across the street. The beach is a block across the street but bring a beach buggy to carry your chairs, umbrellas, cooler etc, it will make your life easier. Overall great time!

After having a horrible experience down the street at Bal Harbour, I booked Lotus Inn the morning of checking-in and they could not have been nicer! It was such a relief. You cannot enter w/o a mask on and it's one customer per lobby. Meghan and others who work the front desk - were beyond hospitable! All staff were extremely nice and helpful. Rooms are very clean and has all you need. Toiletries, fridge, microwave, coffee, blow-dryer, etc. Bed was comfortable too. Overall no complaints! I would absolutely stay here again next summer. Thank you Lotus Inn!! What a gem.
