I recently stayed at the Strathmere motel for one night. The people were very nice, however we were very disappointed with the accommodations. The room was out-dated. While showering, I noticed a used soap bar (from previous guest) with a pubic hair on it. Seems as though they need to hire a new "housekeeper". The mattress was EXTREMELY uncomfortable, air conditioner was so loud it was difficult to sleep. There was a large gap above the door that connected to the room next too us, so large that some one could peek through. Overall, this motel was not worth the money we spent.
But for the price--it was more than acceptable. The owner is off in Afganistan and I think the plan is to gradually fix the place up--they have taken some positive steps. The owners father is running the place and seems like a decent guy until the owner gets back from duty.
Families and people staying at the place seem like good folk. This is no Ritz-Carton but at the beach how much time do you really spend in your room. The place was clean and quiet.
Strathmere beach is nice too--very natural.
What a wonderful place for a quiet, restful getaway within one block of a
pristine, free beach! The value is exceptional and the owners couldn't be nicer. It is the best kept secret on the Southern, NJ shore. One must understand this isn't the Hilton, but you can check out the history of the building at the Sea Isle City Museum.
Close to the beach, great for children. Had a great stay, owner very accommodating and helpful. Left an item there and was even more than willing to help us get it back. Thanks for a wonderful weekend with my girls!
This place is falling down. There's rotting wood everywhere. The mattresses were awful. The curtains were stained. No vending machine - or ice! And there were no plastic cups in the bathroom. This is obviously a tax write-off for the owners. No maintenance at this place in a long time. We left despite having paid $150 for the night. Ugh. Stay away from here.
this place was just what I needed, relaxing... I did not go for any amenities or to party but just to get away. the owner and his wife were working hard on the place and yet they took thier time to tell me and my husband about the history and the sites around this area. we've been to other places in wildwood and ocean city, so they're not the ritz if that's what you want go there. you can't have it both ways cheap and service hand and foot, maybe you should go to a place where you get service like that ( and pay for it) what you get here is peace and true people trying to work hard at what they do. NO FRILLS IS OK WITH ME!
I came here by myself. Just to have some quiet time. My daughter and her friend came to "visit" me the next day. They were only there for a few hours and left. This was during the day. When I received my credit card bill in the mail the owner of this place charged me for two extra people. I could not believe it!! I called him and he said anyone in your room past 3pm is charged. NO WHERE in any brochure did it state this fact. I swear this dude has cameras set up in the rooms so he watch what's happening.
Plus I was eaten alive by sand fleas.
Nope.....never again. The owner should be ashamed of himself.
If you like sleeping on a plastic mattress then this is the place for you. Besides the fact that the owner was incredibly rude, the Strathmere Motel is a total dump. Outdated and dirty can't even begin to describe the room I was given on my recent trip to the shore. After being promised a room with a king bed, my friend and I were given a room with a double and twin. Not to mention that both beds had mattresses wrapped in plastic. The door to our room never shut properly and the bathroom couldn't have been any more run down. The best part was that the floor was uneven and slanted towards the closet. Classic. I think the icing on the cake for my friend and I was how rude and arrogant the owner was. We are two ADULTS who weren't there to "party" or make noise and yet we were being watched the entire weekend. We were led up to our room and there was no greeting or welcome to our stay. We weren't asked at anytime if we needed anything etc. Yet our every move in and out was watched. Needless to say, if your still undecided, read some of the reviews posted and take the hint...save your money.
