Remodeled in 2000, the StarLux Motel is quite a sight to see in Wildwood, NJ. From the boomerangs to the plastic palm tress, the StarLux is part of the Doo Wop resurgence in the Wildwoods.

 

UPDATE 03/08 : Below are more photos of the StarLux Motel complex and its space age throwback architecture. 03-08

The name Eden Roc Motel is a legend in Orange County, California. There's also a Eden Rockin Miami Beach, FL. The Eden Roc in Wildwood, NJ isn't bad on its own. Unfortunately the Eden Roc here in NJ may soon be demolished.

The White Star Motel sports an interesting 4-sided marquee.

 

UPDATE 03/08 : The White Star Motel no longer exists as such, having been annexed to the Blue Palms Motel in late '06 or early '07. Its neon is one of the few that have actually been put on display in Wildwood's "Neon Garden." Many thanks to Kathi for update. 03-08
