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 The rooms are DIRTY and very OUTDATED!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

Sadly I thought I was going to be able to enjoy my beach vacation and be able to relax and unwind. Not so. Noisy neighbors at this place made sure of that. Banging on the walls, slamming doors inconsiderate of others who might be sleeping at 1am. (I wonder if they broke something in there during their stay) Needless to... More

My family of four visited Wildwood for a national dance competition. Our dance team has around 35 members plus their families. We researched motels and condominiums that would fit all or most of the dance team. We chose this motel because it had a good balance of rooms with and without kitchenettes, as some families wanted kitchens and others did... More

Our room was just ok. We were on the poolside which seems to be the newer rooms. They were fairly clean, but dated. We stayed a whole week and our room was only cleaned 3 times. One of those times, we told the housekeeper that we didn't need it that day. They start cleaning the rooms at about 9am. i... More
