I just got back from staying at the Pan American for 5 nights. We had so much fun. There are a few minor negatives about this hotel, but I will start with the positives. It is in the perfect location, in my opinion. It's close enough to walk to the boardwalk, but not too close. It's walking distance to an... More

We stayed here for two nights this past weekend and , as always, Pan Am was perfect for our stay. Our ocean-front deluxe efficiency worked out well for our group of three. Located across the street from the beach, the hotel is spotless, with friendly staff constantly tidying up to keep it that way. Terrific pool area with attentive life... More

Thank you Jim Kelly and great staff for another fabulous year at the Pan Am! You strive to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable and you most certainly succeed! This was year 34 for us and they keep getting better! Alosi's with Maggie's welcoming personality serves a delicious breakfast and our dinner there was delicious! Congratulations on your 50th Anniversary!

My family has stayed at this hotel for 40+ years. The management has changed hands and this hotel is AWFUL! Overpriced, noisy, terrible service. They guarantee parking and then you return to hotel and behold no parking. They offer complimentary coffee between 8 PM (yes u do say PM. Not a typo) and 7:15 AM then they remove as their... More

I've been going to this hotel since I was a little kid. It is so nice, and recently they renovated the rooms and made them even nicer. Service is always on point, the inside is beautiful and clean, there's a restaurant in the building, and the pool is huge and incredible! The one only problem is how expensive it is,... More

Our family has been staying here for 35 years. The Pan Am is small and so popular that It took us 90 minutes to reschedule a different week for nine adults and six kids next summer. There is a reason for this popularity. The owners and management are devoted to continual upgrades to the property, like a poolside firepit and... More
