Positive Reviews

Boardwalk adjacent location is popular.

Placed about a block from Wildwood's boardwalk, this hotel is in an excellent location for tourists to explore the area. Not only is the hotel across from the beach and has great ocean views, but there are lots of great options for entertainment and dining within walking distance.

Unique throwback décor and style.

For a unique retro-style accommodation the StarLux is one of the coolest hotels out there. The throwback décor has been carefully designed to give guests the feeling of having stepped back into the '70s with furnishings and accent pieces like lava lamps that are popular with visitors of all ages.

Free on-site bikes are great for getting around.

One highlight of this hotel is the numerous bikes on the property that are available for guest use. This perk allows visitors to travel to any site on the island without the need for a car or much walking.

Negative Reviews

Rugs smell of mildew.

A deeper cleaning of the rugs and carpeting throughout the StarLux is in order. Several guests report a strong mildew odor in the guestrooms, which can irritate allergies and spoil stays.

Continental breakfast can be skipped.

During the summer season guests at the StarLux are treated to a complimentary continental breakfast, but according to reviews their isn't much to the meal. Not only is the menu selection poor, but several of the items that are served are far colder than they should be.

Guests shouldn't plan on staying connected.

People who book a room at this hotel and expect to be online during their stay will be disappointed. Much like the décor, the technology here is stuck in the 1970s and so the Wi-Fi signal tends to fade in and out.
