We have been coming to the PanAm for over 20+ years. What can we say but it was fabulous again!!!!! The rooms and bathrooms were spotless. The pool was clean and refreshing. The fire pit and complimentary coffee were the best. The staff was wonderful and went out of their way to help in any and every way. We can't say enough great things about Jim Kelly and his entire staff!!! Aloisi's was terrific. The food was delicious and the staff efficient and very friendly. Maggie, Jo and Bri do an outstanding job. We look forward to our yearly visits because everyone in the hotel and restaurant treat us like family. Always greeting us with a warm smile and a hug. We can't wait till next year. John, Mary and Robert Vittozzi

We stayed at the Pan American Hotel for a week in July 2021 and had mixed reviews about this establishment. Pool was very kid friendly and the location was super walkable to the board walk and to the beach. The grounds were well maintained and clean. The restaurant had good food and very friendly staff. Our complaint is better/upfront communication from the hotel front desk/management that they could not provide housekeeping. We requested this for our room for 2 days and the front desk told us ok but was not provided. Only on the 3rd day were we told they were short staffed and would not provide it at all during our stay. We felt they were dishonest about the whole thing. Did not compensate us so unfortunately we would not stay there again.

Thank you for your review and your candor. I am pleased that so much of your stay was enjoyable, but I always hope that everything will exceed your expectations. The housekeeping protocols have changed due to considerations with the COVID-19 virus, and as a result, staffing issues as well. This was communicated in writing in a letter to you at least two weeks prior to your stay. I am sorry if you had not read that and were unaware at the time of your visit to the Pan Am. Daily housekeeping service is not automatically provided in the room, but each day you can at least call for fresh towels, toiletries and trash bags as needed. Your trash and soiled towels will be removed. I do apologize if you did call and did not receive services. In that case, a follow-up call is always welcome so that someone on the Management Team can assist you. Thanks again for the feedback.

This was our second year staying at the Pan American and we just booked our room here for next year. The staff is friendly and accommodating. There are a variety of room sizes/options for you to choose from depending on the size of your group. The pool is a nice size with plenty of umbrellas if you are looking for some shade. The location is perfect because you are not on the boardwalk, but close enough for you to walk to it. This is definitely a great place to stay in Wildwood.

We've been staying here for 40+ years, and we marvel at how the owners keep upgrading the facility. There has been a big improvement in the air conditioning. The surroundings also are first-rate. The hotel restaurant catered a party for us on one of the decks. It was excellent.
