Ocean Holiday Sold


Another motel has been sold. Mahalo Hotels LLC bought the Ocean Holiday for $4.55 million. Since it was bought by a hotel company, hopefully they will continue to run the motel.

wow a lot of sales recently. The good thing is we have not heard about any motels being lost to developers, so hopefully this just means the island is getting some new blood to run the current establishments and make them even better. I've never stayed at the Ocean Holiday, though it's a familiar sight when we are down. I do hope the DWPL reaches out to new owners when motels are bought to try and help them understand the whole mid-century modern thing.

whole lotta selling going on in WW lately. Sometimes that good and sometimes not good.

The bike path row of motels from The Adventurer to The Oceanview is really nice. It would seem particularly out of place were a condo to be built in any one of those spots and I wonder too if approval would be more difficult in that area. Warren.

I was surprised to see the OH sold. There was a period of time when that was the only place we'd stay. My family and I came back last year and were really sad to see that the rooms were not as kept up as they were years ago. I'm hoping the new owners are able to fix it up to what it once was.

  • did bonellis market building sell? I saw an address in property transfers that I believe is the market.
  • looks like they want to have a stretch focusing on retail and new decorations:
  • This is a bit outdated. I was going to post this earlier this past summer, however my laptop died- along with all my bookmarks. Back on August 7 , The Dom Giordano Program on Philadelphia talk radio station 1210 WPHT interviewed Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano. It was supposed to be an interview about Ocean City, NJ's problem with seagulls and how Wildwood deals with their seagulls. In addition to seagulls, the interview touched on some other topics including the season in general and Pacific Ave. Something I learned from the interview... I never knew Wildwood is known as "The blue collar Riviera". In reference to the seagulls, the mayor commented, "They actually are our best cleaners of the beach...Without them our beaches would be a hell of a lot dirtier". Concerning Pacific Avenue, the Mayor said, although they're trying to revitalize Pacific Ave., "Our main street basically in the summer is the boardwalk... You can't compete against the boardwalk". Anyway, here is a link to the interview in case anyone is interested in listening to it... in case anyone is interested, here is a link to a more recent interview from October 15 , from the same radio program in which the Mayor is interviewed about the Philadelphia woman who was arrested on the beach last summer, who is now suing Wildwood. The Mayor refers to the lawsuit as a "money grab". Link to article and audio clip... (In both interviews, the Mayor sounds a bit nervous when commenting about his re-election coming up in November.)
