My family loved the place. We were there in 2004, but I know it has only improved because they have been rennovating the rooms on an ongoing basis. Check out my review under the hotel section entitled "Fantastic stay at the Port Royal". We went in October, low season, and the price couldn't be beat....plus we got a rennovated efficiency unit (full kitchen...a must w/ kids). Cape May is only about 15 minutes away....a nice drive for a day trip to check it out. There will be plenty to do in Wildwood Crest....what with the boardwalk and amusement piers. Cape May is fairly on the quiet side....nice homes....Victorian motif, etc...and one day of sightseeing should do it. Neven been to Ocean City.....but it's probably in the same league as Wildwood.
Any other questions...ask away!
