My sister and I went to Harbor Light Family Resort for a little getaway. The staff is just so nice and polite. Our room was clean and pleasantly decorated. The location is great. The pool was amazing.

I have stayed here many times in the last 30 years. They have upgraded the rooms, the property is clean, the front desk staff are very friendly. Perfect location. The website clearly states that the property is 100% smoke free. The people next to us were smoking outside and many others were as well. Maybe people do not realize that it is 100% nonsmoking. Ill give the benefit of the doubt. Can the front desk inform everyone when checking in about this policy and also put some signs around? I want to stay again but will not recommend or stay if this policy is not enforced. I know the Wildwoods get a bad rap sometimes and the town has absolutely improved for the better since the 90s. But the smoking has to go. Its disgusting. Or at least designate an area outside the property.

I have no doubt this motel pays for and/or incentivizes for their reviews. I booked this place because of all the great reviews and location. The location is definitely great and right across from the beach and on site parking. Other than that there is no reason to stay here. The room was so dark, drab, and honestly kind of scary. The was a roaring loud rattling outside our window all night. The beds are a matress on a frame, no box spring. The mattresses were also completely caved in, slanted, and hard as a rock. I wouldn’t want to stay inside that room for more than 5 minutes ever again. The pictures you are seeing of the rooms are NOT at all representative of what they really look like. The couch was plastic pleather. No natural light in the room at all. We left right away unfortunately. I also see that the owner frequently “responds” to these reviews by calling it’s customers liars and trying to spin their reviews which is crazy. I’m sure they will get this taken down soon because there is NO WAY this is a 4/5 hotel. Hopefully someone can see this though before they book as it is definitely not worth $250 a night.

I'm truly sorry you weren't impressed with your visit, and that you weren't interested in staying with us. It sounds like there was a miscommunication or perhaps inaccurate expectations. If you have a chance, please give me a call at (609) 729-5567. I'd be happy to talk with you more about this. Sincerely, Heather D., Manager

My husband Rob and I have stayed all over the island but the moment we found this place we never stayed anywhere else and never will! We always stay in the same room and last year we eloped at sunset on the dock of the bay in north wildwood and the owners/workers made sure to make our stay even more special for us. They always go over and beyond and have the cleanest rooms and sweetest hospitality staff ever. I truly love the owners and workers here and consider them family now. I look forward to being able to share this special gem with my future kids someday. Thank you harbor light. Love truly - Katy & Rob
