Finally, a beautiful icon of modernism returns, back where it belongs. Come in and relax. Kick your shoes off...
The Wildwoods are our love
There's a special feeling you get from The Wildwoods that can't be duplicated. The beaches that seem to go on forever. A boardwalk that seems even longer than that. Endless drives along Atlantic and Ocean Avenues, taking in the neon glow. Excitement in returning to your favorite motel time and again, or discovering that special place for the first time. There's nothing like it.
Something's gone missing...
Some didn't see the same value in this experience. Condos now sit in place of too many classic motels. Those condos aren't Wildwood though. You could find them anywhere.
Your best times away, ones that stuck with you, have involved a great place to stay.
A memorable place. One that makes you feel there. Not merely a home away from home. That's boring. You're away for something different.
We revere the original Satellite Motel. You can't stay there anymore though.
Of all the Wildwoods' motels demolished in the previous decade's boom, the Satellite's undoing stings the most. It's greatness so strong, its absence so significant, the American Institute of Architects(*) named the Satellite one of the 150 Best Buildings and Places in New Jersey three years after its demolition.
The Satellite...once the "most fabulous ultra-modern Motel on the Jersey Cape" when built in 1958 is now only a nice memory.
It could be more than that though. It's time for a new Satellite.
It's time for the 21st Century Satellite.
A classic reborn, like never before.
Your remembrance of the Satellite brings a smile...and now the experience will be more exciting, more satisfying
...the amenities stimulating, services extensive
...with accommodations more inviting, and further choices to please
it's the Satellite anew
The look of love
When creating the design for the 21st Century Satellite, it was important to make it appear authentic. At the same time, the look had to be fresh and appealing to modern sensibilities. It had to do more than look good though - accommodations and amenities to hit the spot are designed in.
To use "Satellite" in any legitimate way, the lobby had to return. Take a close look at it though - while it needed to be quite similar to the original, it's no mere copy.
We went on from there. Once the lobby was finished and looked just right, the main building took form as an extension of its feel. It had to move. It had to flow. Characteristics that defined the main portion of the original Satellite were adapted for the look of the 21st Century. From this inspiration, the new design fleshed out and went forward.
Come on in...
What you see outside continues everywhere you'll go at the 21st Century Satellite. Every detail is looked after. From our custom 21st Century Satellite mobile app, to the Satellite wafers on your table. Wherever you look, whatever you ask, it's all there. We'll welcome you.
Some of the essential points to come from your experience:
Room for everyone
When you're ready to unwind on your own, just open the lit door, walk into your room, and feel at peace. You'll know you made the right choice. Whatever your needs, we will accommodate. Don't want a kitchen? A Mars room will do. Like to cook inside and want a private bedroom? There's a Neptune apartment waiting for you, complete with dishwasher. Taking your pet along for vacation? Try an Astro. Have a lot of people along for the trip? Spend some time in a Jupiter. Want to really pamper yourself? Indulge in a Saturn luxury suite.
Your interest in the 21st Century Satellite is truly appreciated. We're honored to have the opportunity to present it to you.
An important part of what makes for a great motel is the feeling imparted from others also enjoying their stay. By the interaction. Maybe even getting to know someone. It's a great thing that happens between guests and also the owners & staff with you.
If that connection began ahead of your stay...couldn't that make it even more pleasant?
Would you enjoy being known by name the first time you walked in the door?
Do you hold an association upon return visits to a certain hotel or motel room where it seems like its yours?
If you felt like you were a part of the 21st Century Satellite, wouldn't that make your times with us that much greater? More meaningful?
To make the 21st Century Satellite Motel complete, we need the most important thing. You. It'll be an empty place otherwise, and not just physically.
Though the original Satellite is irreplaceable, the 21st Century Satellite Motel honorably returns such a presence to the Wildwoods, and the world.
As an establisher of the 21st Century Satellite, we hope you'll be proud to be part of the reentrance of a legend to the Wildwoods that never should have left. For this you'll receive deserved recognition, beneficial rewards, and the chance to show the world you're a founding member of our family. Or shine the spotlight on someone you love.
Your time is valuable. We don't intend to waste any of it. If you could take a few moments and look over what the 21st Century Satellite will offer, we hope you find it time well spent. It's sure to capture your senses...
If you find our rewards appealing, it would mean the world to us if you decide one really fills the bill. All serve as pre-payments, usable towards anything we'll offer, even while not staying with us. Whatever you choose, you'll have brought yourself that much closer to our door.
This is the one. The 21st Century Satellite.
Who wants to be our first guest?
