How can I pay my balance?

Balance is due upon check-in and is payable by cash, traveler’s checks, certified bank check, money order and credit/debit card. We do not accept personal checks upon check in, but you are welcome to pay your balance in full with personal check at least three weeks prior to arrival.

What do you request for a deposit?

We request a 30% deposit of the total bill, including taxes, to reserve a room.

What will you request from me upon check-in?

Upon check-in, we will request the balance, a credit card to swipe to keep on file for incidentals and your car information, including your license plate number. Please come prepared in order to streamline the check-in process. Please be sure to review your confirmation prior to check-in to ensure that all the details are correct.

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

In the event of a cancellation of a confirmed reservation, 75% of your reservation deposit will be refunded if notified before 4 weeks prior to your arrival date. There is no refund of deposit on cancellations made less than 4 weeks prior to your arrival date. Sorry, there are no exceptions. Deposit may not be applied to next season and is not transferable. Guests cannot sublet their reservation to another guest. There are no refunds for early check-outs, inclement weather or no-shows.

What if I want to alter my reservation?

The guest is responsible for payment of all nights reserved. If we have a vacancy for the new dates your party is interested in, we would be happy to accommodate your reservation change, provided you are making the request outside our 4-week cancellation deadline. Cancelling one or more nights may not be possible. Sorry, but subletting your room is not permissible.

Room 103 (Type E -1, Pool Side Motel Room) is Handicap Accessible, including a roll-in shower, a detachable shower head and adequate grab bars. Room 403, (Type E, Ocean View Motel Room) is equipped with an Accessible tub with adequate grab bars.

What is your smoking policy?

What time is check-in and check-out?

Check-in is guaranteed by 3 PM and check-out is prior 11 AM. You are welcome to use the facilities after check-out, however cars must be removed from our lot by 11 AM.

Can I request an early check-in or late check-out?

We cannot guarantee an early check-in, however, if your room is prepared we will be happy to allow you to check-in prior to 3 PM. You are welcome to enjoy our property while you are waiting. We apologize, but we cannot offer late check-outs due to our need to have adequate time to properly prepare our rooms before the next party arrives.

How many parking spaces do you provide per room? Where can I park additional cars?

Off-street parking is provided for one car per unit and is strictly enforced. Non-registered cars will be ticketed. Two parking spaces are provided for the F and F+ units, provided they can fit in the designated parking spots in the garage. There is free parking beginning one block from the motel. The meters across the street are free overnight, from 10 PM – 8 AM.

I have an over-sized vehicle. Can you guarantee me a designated parking spot?

We provide one parking spot per unit, which is not specifically designated and is contingent on the vehicle being able to fit in the available parking spots. Over-sized vehicles are not guaranteed special parking and may need to park at the meters or along the street if their vehicle cannot fit in available parking.

Can I request a specific room, floor or location?

We do our very best to accommodate specific requests, however rooms are guaranteed by category A – F only, not by specific number or location.

Do you have a minimum night requirement?

Rental minimums vary depending on availability and time of the season. There is a 3-night minimum for a majority of the season, though at times one- or two-night stays become available.

I prefer to travel the same week every year. Will the Armada automatically renew my reservation for next season?

It is the responsibility of the guest to book their vacation for the following season. While we have many repeat guests, the Armada management does not presume that a guest or group of guests will return the following season and cannot be held responsible to book a guest’s room for the following year upon check-out without a reservation request. Please inquire upon check-out for further details.

Can I request tables for my group to dine together on the sundeck?

Tables are provided on the sundeck for all guests to enjoy during their stay. We apologize, but we cannot provide additional tables for groups, due to the fact that the sundeck is available for the enjoyment of all guests. Please be considerate of other guests when utilizing the amenities with your party. Please, no moving tables from one room to another.

Do The Wildwoods charge beach fees?

No, we are happy to say that we do not charge beach fees!
