The deep Crest was where my family had our summer place.  As kids we used to play and ride our bikes all over those open sandy lots. My father owned a few empty lots somewhere down in that barren section around Diamond Beach.

No experience with any of these, sorry Bob.
Carideon is a pretty good hike to the beach.  Two long blocks to the BW and then that wide beach.
I think Al Alven has stayed at the Skylark....
If it were me, out of those choices - I'd try the Dolphin.  Recently renovated and looks very nice, plus it's a great location.

Tradewinds,  I remember as a little kid we used to go pool hopping up the block, up passed the Villa Nova!  That's also when there wasn't anything between us and Diamond Beach except open lots and the one next to us had a huge garden in! We too miss the Captain's Table, ughhh, replaced by houses,,go figure!

I hear good things about the Dolphin Inn.  Nice location too.  I haven't stayed at any of these motels though...
 
For North Wildwood, I recommend The Isle of Capri or Beach Hugger.  Very cute, family owned places that are clean.  I only stayed at the Isle of Capri and love it there.  I checked out the rooms at the Beach Hugger and they are nice and clean.
 
This is a nice, quiet location. I think you would like it.

I wanted to stay at the Dolphin, but did not due to the cost being a bit higher than some other options. Looks nice though. Skylark doesn't look great and I recall reading bad stuff about the Sea Shell (was cheapest place one time, almost stayed there but I believe Trip Adisor talked me out of it).  
 
Not to hijack the thread, but the Sea Gull always looked nice!

Place is a dump to be honest lol. Got breakfast there on the BOGO deal. It was rather sad.



I only go there for the roast beef sandwiches.  I haven't had a better roast beef on the boardwalk.

 
I will need to try. The pizza wasn't terrible back in the day, but now it just looks like it was a frozen pie and it's gotta be gross. I'd be ashamed to serve that up!

I haven't tried any of these so far. Have thought about Dog Tooth though and Cattle N Clover. I would say the Cape May Brewery is something a lot of people haven't gone to, but they pour some great brews. Coastal Blue looks good. I did go to Beach Creek Oyster Bar & Grill which I do not recall seeing posted on this site, and it was quite good. So perhaps a hidden gem?

Call it gravy or call it sauce, as long as it tastes good is all that really matters.  Wink

Are you set on just Wildwood motels? Any interest in North Wildwood or Wildwood Crest motels?
