Great Vacations Start With a Great Location: Our Oceanfront Motel in Wildwood Crest, NJ

There are many ways that a hotel can change and improve, but one thing that can’t be changed is a property’s location. And the Armada By-the-Sea is proud to boast one of the best beachfront locations along the southern Jersey shore, all while offering a variety of rooming options to accommodate any budget… not to mention we’ve received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 5 years running, or that we were named one of the top 25 family hotels in the US. In case those reasons aren’t enough, here are a few more reasons why we should be at the top of your vacation wishlist!

Why Choose the Wildwoods?

The Wildwoods are centrally located from a variety of other towns for exploring, including the restaurants, shops, casinos and shows of Atlantic City, which is just 45 minutes north; the charm of Victorian Cape May, which is just 10 minutes south; and the convenience of being minutes away from the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.

Why Choose Wildwood Crest?

The island itself is five miles long and is made up of four unique districts – North Wildwood, West Wildwood, Wildwood and Wildwood Crest. The Armada is located in family-friendly Wildwood Crest, at the southern end of the island. Our location affords us the balance of being within walking distance of the activity of the famous Wildwood Boardwalk, which is just 12 blocks away, while being far enough away to enjoy the peace and serenity one might be looking for during a restful beach getaway.

Why Choose the Armada By-the-Sea?

Southern Exposure

One important detail to keep in mind is whether a building faces north or south. Our building faces south, which means that the pool, sundecks and rooms enjoy a sunny exposure all day – perfect for those late afternoon swims while your family is grilling dinner by to the pool.

A Walk in the Park

Another factor that sets the Armada’s location apart is that we are next to Centennial Park. There are many activities that take place at the park during the summer season, including free concerts, Zumba classes, and the opportunity to walk, run, or play sports in the park with your family.

Every Room With a View

This means that each and every room at the Armada boasts a picturesque, stunning, panoramic view of the beach and ocean! What more could you ask for during your vacation at the shore?
