Another great October stay. We enjoy the ocean front room. Towels are the softest and best condition in town. Our room was outfitted with kitchenette, small but OK size frig, DVD player, wall hanging large screen TV's. Room was super clean. While a basket style coffee maker is supplied, we are into Keurig's. Couch was still comfy- but small rip...

A very pleasant surprise. More like the Hyatts, Hiltons than the typical Wildwood Motel. Will definitely return. Fine breakfast at the attached restaurant. Location just off the beach and just South of the boardwalk.

Another great stay at the Pan American. We love the view from our oceanfront room. The staff always makes it that much better. Two very small problems were fixed within minutes. We can always count on the Pan American.
