while I also like those ideas I think the shuttle one not exactly practical they do have Dolly the trolley, but for each motel to be able to do something like that not cost effective at all imho.  I do know that the motel the Alton in wildwood used to have and I think they still might offer rides to beach I could be wrong but nice service.  I do love the bike idea and starlux does offer that also ( I could also be wrong with that) but again I feel could be cost restrictive also and then there is the storage issue but if there is way I am sure the would do it

Flyer has two WONDERFUL ideas I never thought of which i would love.  4 stars!
 
.  Bikes.  I'd love to be able to wake up and know the motel has some bikes available.  Bikes seem to cost about $10 to rent for an hour and a half- not a lot of money, but a cost I'd be willing to see disappear.  More money that can be spent on that massage Smiley
 
  Transportation to and from the boardwalk.  Because who wants to search for an overpriced parking space on a busy Saturday night?  Is there some kind of local law that prevents motels from running shuttles?

For me it was "Sega's Time Traveler" at Castle Casino Arcade across from Seaporte Village.  
For a 10 year old this made quite an impression. It was the first arcade game to use mirrors to produce a hologram you could control.  
 
Still one of my favorite memories of the Boardwalk.  
 
Others included. Seeing a bungie jump in person, first looping rollercoaster I was ever on. And the smell of Elephants from the wood used in building Seaporte Village.

I think this might be dumb idea but I have seen it work at some places already.
 
Wine tasting events at motels from the local vineyards.
 
Ice cream nights for the families like ice cream bar ( maybe like mid week to attract people then)
 
Game nights around the pool ( could be fun even karaoke ? )
 
other than little things I feel the motels do a great job already.  Yes update some of them but besides that and like I said before more outdoor lighting, brighter and add more colors the motels are perfect in my eyes.

I remember the restaurant you're talking about, not sure of the name though; we used to go there after the movies.

I'd like a pool bar...

 
It could be interesting.  Given the Crest being "dry", any other substitute you might like nearly as much?

1. Coffee shop loved the one at The Rio
2. Retro arcade would be awesome and it must have pinball preferably Twilight Zone or Cyclone
3. A nice gift shop.

Hello All,
 
I haven't been on for a while and I've been thinking more about Wildwood lately (I miss being there)  Sad
 
Does anyone remember or has gone to Spiro's Restaurant on the boardwalk? I believe that was the name of the restaurant.  It was on the corner of the boardwalk on Maple Ave. right next to the Strand Movie Theater.  Boy...everytime I walk by that place it reminds me of going there as a child.  I still look inside to expect the restaurant to still be there!  
 
I'm sure this topic has been mentioned before but hey...who can get tired of talking about Wildwood!
 
Best Regards,
Exit 4B
