At first everything was fine. The man at the desk allowed us to check in early which was fantastic with our children. The hotel itself was clean. Was tough with no elevator going up 4 flights of stairs but that’s wasn’t a concern. We stayed a short trip just 3 days. Our second day there we were on the balcony which was very nice on the ocean side. My 3 year old daughter walked out onto the balcony with no shoes and stepped on a small piece of glass. This was our first time on the balcony so it wasn’t our mess and we didn’t take any glass out to the balcony. This was left by previous renters and was never cleaned up. Went to the front desk and nobody was there tried contacting emergency number on door and that number wasn’t excepting any calls. Talked to some people they were st the hotel and shortly after we made it back to our room the man that checked us in came to our door. He said he was the manager and looked at the balcony and said it was glass and got a broom to clean it up. We got the name and number to his boss and was told to call the following morning. We tried and it wasn’t excepting calls either. The guy that cleaned our balcony with a broom still left pieces on the balcony it should have been vacuumed but we just didn’t use it after that. I don’t believe it was much concern to him and probably not the owner since his phone won’t accept calls. Cleaning fees are included in the price and I believe should have been cleaned and should have some sort of communication

Great Front desk, Not fully cleaned

Pros: Location is next to the beach. Grills, outside tables and chairs, and toddler playground set near tables. Kid pool available
Pros: We arrived early due to weather and the front desk clerk was kind enough to provide us the keys as soon as room service was finished cleaning (about 2 hrs earlier than check in time). Overall he was friendly and accommodating. The location is great! It's right in front of the Wildwood Crest sign. The pool had a separate kid pool. We appreciate the convenience of the grill (3 availabe) and tables to eat out. I loved the mini toddler play set near the tables and my child loved it more! Cons: There is no carpet in the whole apt rooms. It felt unsanitary to walk around without shoes which was not comfortable. When coming in from pool the floor would stay wet for awhile unless you cleaned up with towels. Not much of cleanliness. It seemed that throughout the rooms only center spots and center tops were cleaned. i.e. the bathroom floor corners looked terrible (wet, dirt, pieces of toilet paper). The bathroom sink was not fully cleaned (behind faucet there was dirt, sand, etc.). When you take off the bed duvet cover to expose the while sheets you can see dirt (how long ago was the duvet washed? or was it ever washed? How long ago were the sheets changed). Sofa, dining table, decoration were nice. However we're not paying to view decorations and lounge most of the time on sofa. My primary concern is cleanliness, beds, and comfort throughout.

Not worth the money

I rented the two bedroom apartment on the fourth floor. The motel was dirty. No one came to clean our rooms during our whole stay. Many items in the apartment were broken. The motel had wifi but the staff never gave us the password and I had to call a number that I found on a pamphlet to get it. Would never recommend this motel to anyone.

Clean accommodations, convenient location.

Pros: Location & price
Location: Right across the road from the beach, and only a half mile from the boardwalk.
The Cara Mara was a great location, close to the beach and only half a mile from the boardwalk. THe accommodations were very clean, and the room was cute. The pool was also very nice.

Near the park and close to the beach. Not close to any stores or food. Hotel is old and dated. Nothing i would recommend. For a last minute trip it worked but will not be staying there again
