Bring cleaning supplies, towels and linens.

Posted May 14, 2017 on Hotels
When first entering the room it seemed clean, smelled clean etc. After we settled in we found the dining table covered with sand grit, the bed linens felt itchy and worst of all when I grabbed a towel to dry off I was horrified by the dirt and long black hair on it. It was if someone used the towel to wipe up a dirty bathroom floor. It was disgusting. Probably will not return even though it is a great location.

Hate to give bad review

Posted May 8, 2016 on Hotels
We kinda feel itchy with the bedsheets so we ask for extra sheets and 4 pillows but they only give us 1 (and we have to pay $20 each for 4 extra people). The hot water in the shower was inconsistent too as i ended up with a cold shower as i was the last person to use it. I guess they're not yet ready when we booked our stay there as the lady in the front desk told me that it's their first weekend to open for 2016.

A pleasant surprise

Posted Jun 10, 2015
Pros: Proximity to the beach and boardwalk. The Staff. The Pool.
Location: Bike rentals, restaurants, mini golf only steps away from the hotel.
My Wife and I booked a room w/ kitchenette, sight unseen. We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the room, the furniture, bathroom and the view of the ocean. As we found out from the owner, the hotel had been completely renovated. The hotel is right off the boardwalk and the beach in this area of North Wildwood is not as long of a walk to get to the ocean as it is in Wildwood and Wildwood Crest. We will definitely go back again.

Nice Spot in North Wildwood

Posted Jun 1, 2015 on Hotels
Great location, great friendly staff. Our room was a little on the small side and tucked in a dark corner of the building. But, it was clean and the bed was comfortable (a big plus compared to most Wildwood hotels). One annoying negative was that the cell phone reception was awful at the hotel and the motel WiFi did not work for the entire 3 days/nights we were there. So, if you use your cell phone a lot in the room and/or need internet you may want to keep that in mind.

Thanks for you review. Just a few response comments. The room you selected from Expedia was a breeze way unit, that is why you were QUOTE tucked away in the corner. We offer 8 styles of rooms and two on Expedia, one of which has views of the ocean, as the Sahara Motel is directly on the beach and the boardwalk. In ref to the Wifi, comcast had issues that week which were resolved. In ref to the Cell Phone, as you are aware, you are on an Island in North Wildwood NJ, the Sahara does not control that at all. Then again you are on vacation.who needs a Cell Phone.......Thanks again for taking the time to write a review. See you at the Beach..The Sahara Motel.

Sahara motel

Posted May 19, 2015 on Hotels
Hotel was suitable for my family of four. The only issue I must say was the air conditioner noise while sleeping! It was so noisy!

Thanks for taking the time to review our Resort Property. We are sorry about the AC unit being loud. They are all brand new units...if this was an issue, Maintenance would have changed the unit for you. Thanks for staying with us. See you at the Beach...The Sahara Motel.

The Comforters are brand new....you must be talking about a different property. The Sahara is completely renovated and one of the best properties in North Wildwood. Please see our reviews on Tripadvisor. See you at the Beach....The Sahara Motel...
