We would like you to choose a motel that best meets your needs. These are some of our most frequently asked questions. Please call or e-mail if you need additional information.
What are Sandpiper Motel's rates?
What is the beach like at 16th Avenue?
The protected beach at 16th Avenue is FREE and is where the boardwalk begins! It is a short walk across the sand to the ocean. A playground is located to the left of the beach entrance and boardwalk. Don’t worry if you forget your lotion, chairs, rafts, etc., because Ray’s Variety Store is located on 16th & the Boardwalk. Ray’s has everything but the kitchen sink. A public restroom is easily accessible and is located on the beach nearby.
Are there restaurants within walking distance and how far are you from the rides?
We are located across the street and 1/2 block from the beach and boardwalk. Pompeo’s Restaurant, Adam’s Restaurant, Samuel’s Pancake House, several pizza shops, an ice cream parlor and more are located within one (1) block of us.
The amusement piers are located on the boardwalk eight (8) SHORT blocks from the Sandpiper Motel. If you prefer to ride, the tramcar is available for a nominal fee. There are plenty of novelty shops to browse through on the way to the amusement piers. Many of our guests return to the Sandpiper Motel because of our relatively quiet neighborhood atmosphere.
Do we need to bring towels?
You will need to bring pool and beach towels. We supply bath and kitchen towels.
Do you rent to young adults for senior week?
No. We rent to families with children and mature couples 25 years of age or older. The Greater Wildwood Chamber of Commerce will be able to direct you to motels that take young adults. Their website is http://www.gwcoc.com.
What is supplied in the kitchenette?
Each kitchenette is supplied with a full size refrigerator, four-burner cook top, microwave, toaster, drip coffeemaker, dishes, pots and pans. If you have a favorite fry pan or large pot at home, we recommend bringing it.
Do you have BBQ grills?
Yes, we have natural gas Vermont Casting grills. Although not necessary, we recommend bringing your own grilling utensils.
Do you supply detergent?
You may purchase laundry and kitchen detergent in the office. It is not supplied.
Do you have additional parking for extra cars?
We can accommodate one parking space per unit. Additional spaces are not available. There is a public parking lot on 15th Avenue and the Beach. We cannot guarantee their hours of operation.
Do you have an area outside for our bikes?
Yes, you may lock your bicycles to the block wall located alongside of the motel near the pool. Some guests prefer to keep their bikes locked on their car bike rack. We do not supply locks and the bicycles are subject to the weather. Bikes are not permitted in the rooms.
Do you have a clothesline?
Yes, there is a clothesline alongside of the motel near the pool. There is also a coin-operated washer and dryer near the sundeck. Out of respect for our neighbors, we ask that towels and clothes not be placed on the railings to dry.
