We have stayed at this property several times over the years. Every year the hotel experience diminishes. Investments are needed to update the room, linens, window treatments and appliances. The towels are tiny and very thin. The blinds, TV and Coffee pot don’t work properly. Barely any pots and pans available for use. Staff are not very responsive to needs.

I've been coming to Wildwood with my family and specifically to the Shalimar for 35 plus years. The location is great! One block from the beach and close enough to walk the beginning of the boardwalk (about 11 blocks) if you inclined to but far enough away to be in a pretty quiet area. There is an elevator for easy access to the upper floors. The pool is rather large and heated with a separate kiddie pool for the young ones and has plenty of chairs to relax in. It can get a little crowded sometimes but heat will do that :) The pool also stays open late (10pm) which is a nice perk for nights not spent at the boardwalk. In the past I had made a critical comment regarding the wi-fi as it had been spotty at best especially in the rooms but that has since been completely resolved. This year we experienced no issues at all. Whatever has been done to address the issues is much appreciated! I would highly recommend staying at the Shalimar if you are going to the Crest!

Horrible horrible horrible My friend and I booked less than a week ago. Unfortunately yesterday covid got in the way and I decided to postpone the vacation . We were exposed and wanted to see if anyone else would develop Covid before we came ( in 4 days ) What a bunch of inconsiderate people. I was told that' we don't have to quarantine and to still come even with having full-blown symptoms and while the others who were exposed we're still waiting to see if they tested positive. They advised us to still come or we would lose our deposit. I refuse to stay at an establishment where management does not care about their other guests. We canceled and booked elsewhere. We are staying in a location where the owners and management care about the well-being of their customers Beware!!

If you love to harken back to the glory days of Wildwood, but need clean and well appointed digs at a value, look no further than the Shalimar. I am an Ocean City MD kinda girl, but wanted the real Wildwood experience my parents enjoyed in the 70s. This place, at least from my point of view, was CLEAN. There is a cleaning crew cleaning literally every second of the day. And the staff is so sweet! Second, the fridge was BIG and we rented two units next to each other and there was plenty of room for all our drinks, snacks, meat for grilling in the fridges. The little kitchenette in the family one bedroom was nicely built. Looked recently updated with a big bucket sink, forks, knives, pans, everything you need in a little kitchen. The room was small the bathroom, super small, but it was fine. The beds were fulls and not super comfortable but also not terrible if you use all their big fluffy pillows. THe pool was AMAZING. We were 9 people all together and we had so much fun in the pool ( older kids, adult kids, and four parents) it brought out the little kid in our husbands and they were doing jack knives and cannonballs off the diving board all day long ( yes... that was us, people there on the 30th of July, we were the cannonball crew) Everyone was so friendly, the check in wasn't terrible, and we used the nice grills and tables to have a big family dinner, then walked to the beach. Great location especially if you want to go rent bikes and do the boardwalk in the mornings. Love Shalimar and may even go again for a long weekend next year! ONE POINT: The fruit truck comes twice a day the ice cream trucks come 3 times a day, so be ready for your little kids to want to partake. Also the parking spaces are SMALL but we never ever had a problem finding one right next to the stairs to our room. We may try to rent the bigger rooms next year and enjoy that fun pool. I did hear the diving board is coming down due to regulations in 2023. booo! Did have one guest who was a drunk mom whose kids were retchid and annoying, then she tried to start fights with people. Real classy. But you will see people like that anywhere. We didn't let her ruin our vacation. Mostly we loved all the guests in the pool and made some new friends. If you are on a budget, this is your place, hands down. Note - rooms are small. be ready for that. But the location and pool are worth the crammed feeling. Theres a table and chairs big enough for a card game.

My gf and her bestie booked here over the winter. I just went along with it and didn’t really pay attention to any reviews until just before we were getting ready for the weekend. What I read had me a little worried, but these fears were unfounded. We were greeted by Michael, who was very friendly and very thorough with the dos and don’ts. The room was very clean, but a little dated. But if you can deal with pink tile on your bathroom you won’t have an issue. The kitchenette area is adequate, and the fridge/freezer was clean and large enough. No coffee maker, but there’s a Keurig in the lobby. Parking is free and we had no trouble finding a spot. It’s an easy 1 block watch to the beach, or you can instead hang at the pool which is a nice size and the area around it is clean, and plenty of lounges and tables. There are a few gas grills off to the side of you want to do any cooking. So I’m sorry if some previous visitors had some issues, but we’ll definitely be back!

My family and I booked a vacation here and all ended up with LICE!! The hotel is dirty and management is unhelpful. I am now spending hundreds of dollars on lice treatments for a 10 month old 3 year old and myself who’s pregnant. This is unacceptable save your money and book elsewhere

We had stayed across the street from the Shalimar and the place looked nice. So we figure we would give it a try. Looks however, were deceiving. When we arrived we were told that because of Covid 19 our rooms wouldn't be cleaned daily for the safety of the staff, and that we would need to ask for items as we needed them. I don't know if this mandated by New Jersey or not, but it really didn't make much sense and it just seemed to be a way for the place to cut down on room cleaning and save some money. Our room appeared much smaller then the the photos. Additionally the room was dirty. We found chips in the fold out sofa bed. That obviously hadn't been cleaned. The microwave was broken. They offered to switch rooms for us, but the TV in the room they offered was broken as well. The toilet appeared to be broken, however if you held the handle for about 20 seconds it did work. One of the blinds were broke, but they did fix that. We did spend a lot of time the first day waiting for items to be fixed as we made each new discovery of broken things. In addition one of the barbecues was broke, but they seemed to have fixed that by the time we left. The pool was large and the water was warm. However after it rained one evening they closed the pool, for safety reasons, when all the other pools at the other hotels remained open. I would not recommend the Shalimar. If the place was maintained and the rooms actually cleaned this might be a decent place. But it is not worth it right now.

Book a stay for two night stay on Booking. com, starting on the 4 of July 2020. This place just continued to go down hill as the day progress. The hotel had rented to a large group, that took over the place. Some of the low-lights are, music blaring the whole time, cans and bottle left on pool edge, large group took over grill for the day. Towels trowing by door and left till around 9 night. By 7 or 8 that night after the room above and beside us was flooded by this group. I went down to the front desk, and asked Mike to move us to the 4 floor room, which was more money. I offer to paid the extra 100 dollar a night for the room. Mike was unwilling to do this. Being, that there is no maid to clean our room, and there might be a walk in, for the empty room. As the night progressed the fireworks began. I have no problem with fireworks, when being use in a safe manor. But, when being light on second floor balcony , and by the cars in parking lot, by kids and drunks, that a big problem. Was keep awake till around 2 in the morning. Staff was well aware of all this. Sent an email by hotel after stay, asking for a call before posting a review, so they could rectify any issue. Made 2 calls to hotel, asking to talk to a manage, liked stated in their email. Not even the courtesy to call me back. Finally, on third call was told by front desk, she would call police on me for for harassment. Finally, contacted Booking. They did get an email reply from hotel. This email attacks me, stating if was this bad I should have check-out and just looking for something for free. Easier said, then done on a 4 of July night. I never ask for anything, but a call back from management. This seem to be the approach of this hotel, to attack guest that post reviews and voice their concerns, as I seen on previous reviews. Interestingly enough, there a review posted same concerns as mine on a previous July 4 stay. . Once again hotel went on attack, stating some people do not get along with others and this hotel is a lively place. As for me, I enjoy meeting people from other area and getting to know them. Sadly, this hotel does not know the difference between a Safe and enjoyable place for all their guest. Email are in picture as to leave in doubt. Could not taken pictures, as they would h contain other people children. This is not what I needed or you, when trying to relax. Thank for reading this review.

I admit I am writing this while angry. I stayed at this "resort" (please, let's not kid ourselves) last Saturday. Very few accommodations available for this spur of a moment trip--so Shalimar it was. We checked in after 6pm and hit the road for the dinner. Came back to our room around midnight---and the toilet wouldn't flush. No answer at the front desk--it was locked up tight. No answer at the Emergency # that was posted. So we had to pack up and leave in the middle of the night. Now the frustrating part... I have called twice to request a refund--each time my name & number was taken. I have emailed their cheesy gmail address listed on the website... no response. I am furious and I was a FULL refund from the POS of property. So... lodger beware. Room was $153. Ridiculous.
