The room was very comfortable and well kept. The location is terrific as it is only about a 4 block walk to the boardwalk. The breakfast was disappointing as the food is mostly packaged options. But overall I would say this was better than the other local motels.

I loved this place! Booked a small queen, whirlpool room for my birthday weekend. I loved the privacy & coziness. Even enjoyed a movie from their classic VHS collection in the hallway. They were kind enough to mail me the Polaroid camera I left in the room. I appreciate their efforts, especially during their busy season! I look forward to visiting again in the future.

We loved the owners/managers Cynthia and Robert! They upgraded our room for our anniversary. The room was very clean and comfortable. Overall, great time!!! Walking distance to everthing!

We stayed for three nights during the week. We enjoyed our stay in our suite. Just far enough out of the hustle and bustle to enjoy a quite evening on the porch. The owners Cindy and Bob are wonderful people, they eagerly recommended eating places and different things to do while we were there. We just did not have enough time to do everything. Thank you for a very enjoyable vacation. We hope to visit again.

Celebrated our one year anniversary on this mini beach getaway. Cynthia was a sweetheart by allowing us to check in earlier and upgrading our room to celebrate our anniversary! The room was bigger than I expected and everything was very clean!! The bed was soft and comfy!! The continental breakfast was nice and we enjoyed the coffee!! Thanks for a wonderful weekend!!

We had a very nice stay at Holly Beach. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The previous B&B we stayed at was the same price point, but the room was so small you could barely move around. Holly Beach had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The location was just a few short blocks to the boardwalk; close enough for convenience and far enough away to not hear all the noise. The 3 stars on dining is only because there is no hot breakfast; they offer a nice selection of bagels, English muffins, pastries, and other standard continental breakfast fare. Great hospitality! We would definitely stay again.
3.0 on May 31, 2016
Even though the description of the room was small, it was still much smaller than we expected and better suited for 1 person vs 2. However, the room was very, very clean and neat. The breakfast was continental style and in my opinion, a B & B should offer something more than continental style.

My husband & I just came home from our stay at Holly Beach. We enjoyed our stay and definitely will return. We had a great experience & the owners (Cindy & Bob) are warm and welcoming. Susan D.

My husband and I have never stayed at a B&B before, but just wanted a little weekend getaway. The Holly Beach Hotel B&B provided great accomodations. We were greeted as soon as we arrived, our rooms were small but very clean, and breakfast was great.

Place is lovely as always and Cindy is so welcoming. A bit disappointed by the change in the breakfast, but only because we so loved Cindy's cooking!
Thanks so much. We will be cooking homemade breakfasts again starting October 12th through April 30th, 2016. We are hopeful you can join us during this time. Please request your favorite dish.

No problems.Great people to stay with. Close to beach and restaurants. Read their website and there will be no surprises. The front porch is definitely the place to relax. My wife and I stayed with another couple and we spent hours on the porch taking to our hosts.
3.6 on September 05, 2014
This is the third time we have stayed at Holly Beach. For the second time, they upgraded us to a suite. That was an unexpected surprise and really added to our mini-vacation in Wildwood. However, we also experienced an unexpected change that wasn't as pleasant. They no longer serve a full breakfast; just a continental breakfast. That was a bit disappointing. The hosts, however, were very pleasant, as always!
We are now serving homemade cooked breakfasts from October 12th through April 30th, 2016. We are hopeful and can join us and please request your favorite dishes.
3.4 on August 25, 2014
Quaint bed and breakfast. The owners were very pleasant. The room we initially booked was very small, but we were upgraded to the suite which I would highly recommend as it was very comfortable. Location was not too noisy and only a few blocks from the boardwalk. The porch was wonderful to sit out on with a great breeze. The only disappointment was there was no breakfast as it states on this website on the weekends and some of the reviews stated the food was great so I guess their policy changed. Light continental breakfast consisting of packaged donuts and such was all they had. We are accustomed to getting a cooked breakfast when staying at a bed and breakfast, especially since it was listed. But, on the whole, it was a lovely little inn and we enjoyed our stay. Would possibly return in the future.
Thanks so much. Please try and join us from October 12th through April 30th, 2016. We will be serving our homemade breakfasts again. Please request your favorite dishes.

I travel frequently and am a lifetime Platinum for Marriott and a few other hotel. B&B are not something i normally use for accommodations but in Cape May i had no other option. I was very pleasantly surprised by the Holly Beach Hotel. The rooms were very nice, the service was excellent, the people extremely friendly, it was quite close to the boardwalk but far enough away that you heard no noise, there are several very good restaurants in the area and off street parking was provided. Really an outstanding experience.
5 on July 31, 2014
We have been staying here for many years, and we are never disappointed. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is always great, and the best part of this B & B is the nice, quiet location. We stayed closer to the boardwalk one year, and the noise kept us from a good nights rest, but The Holly Beach is in a nice quiet area, and we sleep like babies there. A beautiful location, close enough for us to the beach, and a very clean, well run establishment. We love staying at The Holly Beach B & B.

Charming, homey rooms and wonderful friendly service from the owners, Cindy & Bob. I am not a breakfast eater, but other folks staying there raved about the free breakfast--croissant french toast with apricot syrup. Good restaurants and the boardwalk both within easy walking distance.

My boyfriend and I stayed for the weekend and I couldn't have been happier. I saw a lot of reviews about how tiny the rooms were but for us that wasn't a problem and it was very clean, always a plus. Our innkeepers were incredibly nice to us and breakfast was yummy. I had gotten bad sunburn and he gave me some helpful tips to keep it from stinging and peeling. I wished we would've had a DVD player instead of a VCR but that was okay. Even after we checked out they let us use the showers out back, sit on the porch and keep our parking spot so we didn't have to go pay for parking! Overall we had a great stay and would definitely go there again.

We enjoyed our stay at Holly Beach B&B. The rooms were small but we only slept and showered there. The front porch is great to sit on at night with a cocktail and in the morning with your coffee. The breakfast was good except that the fruit was canned (during peak fresh fruit season). The owners were friendly and accommodating.

The room was very small, which other reviewers mentioned so I was expecting this. However, it was very clean. Breakfast was yummy and homemade, providing a nice start to the day. It was cozy and clean, but I felt like I was bothering the innkeepers if I wanted something.

The Holly Beach B&B is in a great location to the beach, good food and is right off of the main drive. not to mention that there was plenty of parking especially for my large truck. the front porch is great for relaxing and cindy and bob are the friendliest around.

The room was extremely small (if I had had a large suitcase, I'm not sure I could have found a place to put it), but clean. The breakfast was delicious and Cindy and Bob were very friendly- called everyone by name and gave recommendations for dining, attractions, etc.
5 on July 21, 2013
We've tried the motels, but found the place we will stay in from now on! Holly Beach B & B was a comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated Bed and Breakfast. Breakfast was scrumptious and owners Bob and Cindy are extremely hospitable, they even called everyone by name. Not to mention Holly Beach has the most delightfully breezy front porch! We will definitely be back and will highly recommend it to all our friends! Elaine M.

4.6 on September 18, 2012
While the neighborhood where this B&B is located is not the most pristine in the Wildwoods, however the B&B facility is definately a Gem among many of the trashy facilities there. I was pleasingly surprised at how clean the facility and room was, how nice the hosts were and how accomodating they were. It was quiet, and really nice. This is a B&B worthy of what one might expect in Cape May, except unfortunately, its in the center of Wildwood.
4.8 on September 17, 2012
Cindy and her husband were pleasant and couldn't do enough for you. The accomdations were quaint and lovely. The building though old had character and charm the rooms were wonderfully decorated like a nice cosy home. Bathroom small be modern. Breakfast was scrumptous. The part of town is somewhat run down in some areas but the holly beach sparkles I would probably stay there again if I find myself in wildwood.

Although the room was small....and we chose it......everything else about this establishment is big! Great standards, cleanliness, personality of hosts, helpfulness and the breakfasts....wow.

It was a good choice for staying in Wildwood, but if we were to do it over again, we would not stay in Wildwood. We would advise trying to find something reasonable in Cape May, which is a much much nicer town to visit. The owners were very helpful with directions and suggestions for restaurants. The room was what we expected from the pictures and description and the breakfasts were Ok, but nothing special as bed and breakfasts go.
4.6 on August 11, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Holly Beach B & B. I made the decision to stay there after reading all of the nice reviews from previous guests. My wife and I were not disappointed. The room was on the small side but I knew that up front but it was very clean, bright and well appointed. The owners, Cindy and Bob, were fabulous and we felt as if we were guests in their home and not just vacationing renters. I appreciate the fact that they are real people and not stuffy B & B owners. They were very helpful with anything we needed and Bob's dining recommendations were spot on! Now on to the breakfast. WOW! Just outstanding! We could have eaten Cindy's breakfast's for lunch and dinner too. Very, very good and made to order as you came down for breakfast. We will be back to the Holly Beach B & B again very soon.

The service and hospitality were superb. Most notable is Cindy's tasty and nutritional breakfast including fresh fruit. The room was small, but anyone wanting a clean room for sleeping, a great breakfast with "restaurant row" only a block away this place is well worth considering.

I spent nearly two months at the Holly Beach Hotel B&B back in 2007. The other people I was with and myself enjoyed the advice of places to see and eat given us from Bob and Cindy. Loved the antique flair of the place and the fantastic homemade breakfast every morning. Sitting out on the front porch in the wicker furniture was so relaxing. really enjoyed my stay and to this day I tell everyone about the wonderful experience I had at Holly Beach Hotel Bed and Breakfast.

First, Wildwood, NJ is a DUMP! Second, the male host was very nosey and repeatedly asked where we were going and what we were doing. There were fireworks one night and he asked us why we did not watch them, and what we were doing instead. He told me not to wring out my teabag and breakfast and to be sure to take sunblock to the beach. He also did not want us to go to Cape May but rather to stay and do everything in Wildwood (which is a dump!). The breakfast was okay and was homemade and the place is very clean. The room is barely enough space to walk around the bed, however.
4.2 on September 05, 2011
I was especially impressed with the service at Holly Beach. The host served breakfast to everyone himself and made himself available for any questions or information patrons needed. The atmosphere was relaxed with a lovely front porch where guests could take beverages outside and sit. The cleanliness was outstanding.
3.8 on September 05, 2011
The place isn't going to blow you away, but hey, its a place to stay and the family that runs the place takes a lot of pride in it. Bob is going to recommend the hell of the places he likes around Wildwood whether you like it or not, so don't fight it. Embrace it. He also has one of the sickest handlebar mustaches in the business so it makes for good breakfast talk. His wife was not as social, but cooks a mean pancake! The surrounding neighborhood leaves a little to be desired as there is a "riff-raff" element that made me quiver a little. The house to the left may be used for the distribution of narcotics- we won't know- but they sure knew how to pump that Lady Gaga. A lot of reviewers mentions cats and trains, which frankly I was looking forward to. To my dismay I did not see one train or cat... or train with a cat as the conductor.

They really went above and beyond to take care of all their guests, which was very much appreciated. This wil be a place that I will visit again! S Hunter

The Holly Beach Bed and Breakfast was a beautiful place to stay. The honeymoon suite with the hot tub was better than I had even expected. The breakfast was fantastic. I am looking forward to going back there very soon!
3.8 on August 10, 2011
This was my first time in Wildwood, and I had a pleasant stay. Although pricey (which may be because it's Wildwood), the B&B was very nice. It's only 2 blocks from Morey's Piers. The room was small (I wouldn't stay more than a long weekend) but clean and comfortable; the whirlpool tub was nice and the room-AC kept it cool! The service was great - Bob was friendly & helpful, and there were plenty of books/videos to borrow. Breakfast was decent. There was a hose and showers out back to clean up before coming inside - great after a long day at the beach.

The food and service were excellent. Everyone was very polite and had a great attitude.
3.2 on July 22, 2011
My husband and I spent two nights here one weekend and found it to be a very quiet place. The room was way too tiny though, and didn't include what I thought it would. Great place to stay if you plan to be out most of the day and in at night. Only 17 poor channels on the TV, but a large selection of videos to watch. Very very clean, and very proper breakfasts. Loved the front porch and chatting with the owners and their family. Would definatly go back if we weren't having a baby! Little on the pricey side for what you receive though. A motel room probably wouldve been bigger, but you wouldnt have received the same hospitality! Recommend it for young and old couples!
2.6 on July 11, 2011

Our room at the Holly Beach Hotel was a miracle of everything you could possible want in a compact space. The room is decorated beautifully, includes a mini frig, a very comfortable bed, an armoire, many spaces to hang clothes, a TV-VCR-DVD-CD player and the most wonderful spa tub we have ever used. The B&B itself is cozy and homelike with a wonderful front porch. It is close to the beach and boardwalk with easy parking. This time we stayed there with a special rate that did not include breakfast, but we have enjoyed Cindy's breakfasts before and they are delicious. In fact she shared with me the secret of fluffy, moist scrambled eggs. Her husband Bob gives great advice about good restaurants and other services on the island. He also directed us to the best ice cream ever.
4.6 on June 14, 2011
We never thought that staying in Wildwood we would find a place that was comfortable and clean away from all of the prom kids during prom weekend. The room is small and more comfortable than any oversized hotel room we have stayed at, the dvd and vcr in the room helped make the night more relaxing, the tub was to die for, and breakfast in the morning was so delightful I never want to eat pancakes anywhere else.
4.4 on June 07, 2011
My husband and I had the privilege of staying here this past weekend and it was an outstanding experience. This is not a hotel or resort. You are guests in the very congenial and accommodating host's home and they make you feel like extended family members. Cynthia and Robert Buziak are a wonderful team that compliment eachother. Now that we have found Wildwood and Cape May we will find the Holly Beach as our place of choice in the future. Thank you for this excellent long weekend.
4.2 on June 01, 2011
For the money, the Holly Beach Hotel B&B is a great value. Here are the positives: friendly and helpful owners; close to the Wildwood boardwalk and beaches; good restaurants and bars nearby; great breakfast; great front porch (comfortable and shaded; great for settin' a spell), clean, comfortable guest room; parking included across the street; well restored, century old building. Here are some things to consider about the neighborhood: there are seasonal guest houses located on the same street that attracted a lot of young people when we visited Memorial Day weekend. They weren't loud, and did not cause any trouble. However, if you don't want to vacation near a bunch of graduating high school and college students, look elsewhere. You may have to pay more for the privilege. About the regular rooms: they're small. If you want larger accommodations, rent the suites, or again look elsewhere. Remember this, did you travel to the shore just so you could hang out in your bedroom?

This was our return trip to Holly Beach. Just short of 100 years old, the rooms are tiny, but sufficient for a decent night's sleep.

We had as a family of 4 people a two bedroom app.booked. We got 2 small beds in one room, one old couch in the other room. Not really space for us all and the bathroom with the toilett was about 2 qm...You could not even turn around. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was served without felxibility and much too less! For that money we spent it is a bad joke what we got offered and how the rooms looked like! In 20 years of experience as a travel agent it was the baddest b+b I have ever seen. So, dont spent your money in this b+b house !

For a short weekend trip, had a great stay. The standard room was small, so for anything longer than a couple nights, spring for a bigger room. Location was a few blocks from the beach/boardwalk, and was quiet. The hot tub was nice and secluded, though no pool was kind of a bummer. Breakfast was very well done and the innkeepers were very friendly and helpful.

The Holly Beach is an updated classic boarding house with a very friendly feel, thanks to Cindy and Bob. Other pluses include the great front porch, hot tub, parking, and yummy breakfast each morning. The location is farther from the beach than many hotels and in the older section of Wildwood, but Cindy readily provides recommendations on getting around, including restaurants (with discount coupons). Some of the rooms are quite small, but all include a private bath and AC. Most rooms are on the second or third floor up narrow staircases.
