The best thing about the hotel is the location. It is right on the beach, but there are plenty of other hotels that are also on the beach, if that is a must. As noted here many times, the "lady" behind the counter is ridiculously rude and unfriendly. Not sure why she chose that job unless she enjoys making people... More

I have stayed here before a couple times. I have tried other hotels but seem to keep going back to this place. The views are absolutely breathless especially at Sunrise! Has an elevator which is great because I am disabled and cannot walk that much, especially steps. They even have the convenience of having wheeled luggage carriers that you can... More

Me and my family have been going to Wildwood Crest and staying at the Royal Hawaiian Beachfront Hotel for over 10 years. It is the BEST!!! It is convenient for the family to come and go to the beach, enjoy the heated pool, and the poolside as well. The hot tub is a nice added bonus that no other hotels... More

We haven't visited Jersey in many years. We booked later confronting limited vacancy options. Through reviews, internet search, availability, we found the Royal Hawaiian. As we have posted in past, the definition of “resort” for many East Coast hotels is very different from the “resorts” you find in more extravagant locations. Readers also need to analyze content, differentiating between subjective... More

We just came home today so this is fresh off the press. 2 days prior to checking in I called to confirm our reservation. I was disappointed to learn that the amount quoted on my receipt that I received in the mail was less then what I was told when confirming. When I inquired I was told weekends start on... More

Royal Hawaiian resort needs to put $ back into the hotel. The rooms are DIRTY and very OUTDATED! The management is awful and are not friendly at all. The pool is nice but that's it. If they updated the rooms and management was more friendly this place would do very well but until then we won't be back.

Our family has come here for a few years now. It is great because it is right on the beach, the pools are very nice, clean, and has a large walk in hot tub. Our rooms were updated and very clean. Beds were nice. Had microwave, and small fridge. They also had a big table in the unit which was... More
