My Wife and I wanted to bring the kids to the Jersey shore for their first time as we live in Ohio. We had stayed at the Shalimar several times but, not in the last 10 years. It was nice to find that the same owners are there and run a tight ship, so all can enjoy the premises equally.... More

I booked the Shalimar Resort at the last minute. They had one room available and it was close to the beach so I booked it. I was pleased with the customer service. I had requested a first floor room because I was traveling with my grandmother. Even with the last minute booking, they gave me a first story room. One... More

I have been coming to Wildwood with my family and specifically to the Shalimar for 30 years. The location is great! One block from the beach and close enough to walk to the beginning of the boardwalk (about 11 blocks) but far enough away to be in a pretty quiet area. The pool is nice and ample with a separate...

D G - thank you for your review and we are really glad to hear that you enjoy it here! We completely understand that the wifi is frustrating. Unfortunately, what many people do not understand is that Wildwood is an island with very limited infrastructure in that sense. It is not an urban or suburban area - we are more... More

I have been going to the Shalimar for over 7 years despite them occasionally screwing up our reservations and not making accommodations for their mistakes. They offered no discounts or anything. This past year they said there were things broken in the room. When I called to discuss what happened Maria was extremely rude and unprofessional. All I wanted to... More

This guest had been coming to the Shalimar for several years. However, we have had consistent issues with the condition of their room upon check out. We have made numerous attempts to address this issue with the guest over the years in every way possible, but to no affect. We continued to welcome them back. This year, upon check out,... More

From what I could tell this was one of the nicer hotels down on this end. We had a room with a private balcony from which which we could see the beach. The room decor was ok, as was the pool. A lot of families seem to frequent here, so not exactly a place for couples. The ladies at the... More

I have never written a bad report or complained about anything, however this place has TERRIBLE customer service! The pool opened late 2 of the days we were there. The beds are the most uncomfortable beds ever. When we noticed there wasn't a safe in the room, we called the front desk to ask if we could not have the... More

The Shalimar is very clean and the pool is open until 10PM which is a big plus. In addition the pool has both a diving board and a slide. The Shalimar also offers both mini-golf and ping png. I would highly recommend, as I do not offer negative reviews but I can tell you that the Shalimar is much better... More

The Shalimar served as our home away from home once again. The management and staff keep the property and rooms in first class shape. Everything works right and does not look worn in any way. This is one of the nicer places on the island.

My family has been staying at this hotel for years and we love it. We are a big group with a lot of kids so we've moved around from hotel to hotel. In the past, we've encountered issues of dirty pools, no microwaves in the rooms, harassing us about curfew, etc. Finally this hotel has everything we need and accommodates... More

I booked this in the middle of the summer about 4 days before departing. I really got lucky getting this room for a Saturday, on such short notice. We got a basic room which was enough for what we needed. The room is retro/a little dated but well kept and clean. It's in a quiet neighborhood very close to the... More
