Just found this one that wasn't here in Locating yet. Its a late one, being built in 1978. A small, older style motel, it is considered to be the last of the Doo Wop style motels that Wildwood is so famous for.






The best feature of the motel is the sign:




Here's a shot of it at night:




At some point the colors changed slightly:




There is also a poor quality mural on one wall:




An what looks like a better one on another wall, but this one is shown painted over in more recent photos:




Lastly, this place is still alive and kicking. The owners are part of the current doo-wop preservation league, so that sign should last quite a while.
