Bringing Back N. Wildwood Memories for a Friend

by written on August 17, 2014

The Lollipop Motel is one the several iconic "doo wop" style motels from the late 1950's and early 1960's still playing a prominent role in the Wildwood and North Wildwood accommodations scene. Both towns strive to preserve this popular "doo wop" architecture and Wildwood's identity is especially connected to the era, both architecturally and even musically --- younger crooners from New Jersey and Philadelphia performed here. Doo wop is characterized by many features depending on where it is used but the architectural style can be in hotels/motels, restaurants, stores, parking lot signs and even in nominal structures such as admission booths. In the Wildwoods the style is usually characterized by upsweeping rooflines, lots of glass, stainless steel, sometimes wrought iron, futuristic (for the time) shapes such as space age designs indicating motion (think of the Jetsons), large pools, sometimes even fake palm trees, and even the establishment names seem to fit the time period too. The Lollipop is easily recognizable with its towering Lollipop sign with children's faces, brightly painted room doors, and 2nd level pool and sun deck surrounded by scrolly-shaped wrought iron.

The nearly 50 year-old Lollipop Motel represents this time in American architectural history admirably, and has obviously been well maintained. However, in the fall of 2004, it underwent a renovation and was transformed into what the owners call a "condominium hotel." It now features Studio Efficiency and Two-Room Efficiency Suites. Each room type features a small kitchenette including a microwave, coffeemaker, and a mini or full fridge. The Studio Efficiency includes a double bed, a queen-size sleeper sofa, TV, full bath and sleeps 4. The Two-Room Efficiency includes one bedroom with 2 double beds, with a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living area, TV and sleeps 6. Moving room in either of these situations is tight and the furniture is rather an eclectic mix.

Rooms have cable TV with HBO, and DVD players. WiFi Internet access is available too. Guests will be happy to know there is also a guest laundry and daily maid service.

Rates are dependent upon season, and even days of the week as well as when you book your reservation. Therefore, it really is important to check their website for rates and any available specials.

Unique Quality: The Lollipop Motel's exterior is really charming if you are a fan of "doo wop" architecture which a lot of American "baby boomers" who were coming of age during 50's/60's era. The Lollipop Motel is only 2 blocks from the free North Wildwood beaches and boardwalk, and located in a very nice area of the town. It's a family friendly location where virtually everything is very well maintained.

I think families will enjoy the previously mentioned 2nd level deck with heated pool, a sundeck & area with BBQs and this is a very nice amenity for days when the ocean wave action is too rough to swim at the beach, or you'd like be closer to your room.

The Lollipop Motel is within relatively short driving distance to Atlantic City, Cape May and other shore towns. Restaurants and other attractions are within walking distance or also within a few minutes driving distance!
