One of South Jersey's very own hotels has made it onto a rather elite list -- as one of the top hotels in the country.

The big winner is the Adventurer Oceanfront Inn. in Wildwood Crest!

So, what is it about this hotel that has it receiving national attention?

It was named the 19th, "Best Hotels for Families in the U.S." by the TripAdvisor's 2019 Travelers Choice Award.

"People come year after year because we make them feel like they're family and they are coming home," said Mary Nell Murphy, co-owner of the Adventurer Oceanfront Inn.

The owners have grown up with various guests that have continued to visit each year for over 35 years.

It is family-friendly, has a heated pool, is walking distance to the FREE beaches, has a nearby bike path and there are visible fireworks every Friday night.

So while Mom and Dad are relaxing at the pool, there are plenty of nearby activities for the kids to take part in!

Let's also not forget the importance of affordability. A four room suite facing the boardwalk is priced at $508 per night. What is that -- just over $100 bucks per night per suite occupants? Not bad for the location at all.

This hotspot sounds like the perfect vacation destination for the entire family if you ask me.

"We work hard to make our guests feel at home," said Murphy.
