“Needs a lot of cleaning up - not just painting & a new manager.”
Reviewed September 13, 2009

Have stayed at the Roman Holiday for years & have watched it go down hill on a consistent basis. The maid cleaned the bathroom floor with the towels we used & kicked them out the door, never washed the tub or sink. The sliding glass doors were filthy, so filthy you could hardly see out of them. The sliding screen door was broke. They took out the curtains & replaced them with the cheapest verticle blinds they could find. We don't spend much time in the room unless its raining & this year it rained a lot. The manager should never deal with the public. SHE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. SHE IS REALLY NASTY. We simply deal with all this because we love the location & of course Russo's Market around the corner. The food is great! We hope next year things will be 100rd x's better.

Roman Holiday is a nice clean hotel conveniently across from the beach and in close proximity to the boardwalk. The management and housekeeping are very attentive, and pleasant to deal with. The large deck has cabanas and lounge chairs, and a good size barbecue. (Walk to nearby Russo's for some steaks, then up a block to the ice cream parlor.) The property has a handy elevator and boasts a heated pool with waterfall. They also offer Wi-Fi. Certainly and great place to bring the family.

The management staff of Roman Holiday were a delight. Everyone was pleasant and accommodating. Maid service was wonderful! They actually put the heater on in the otherwise freezing pool.

We had stayed at the Roman Holiday for many years. It used to be a beautiful place witha fantastic view and great location. It still has a fantastic view and great location but the similarities end there. The rude front desk woman is the manager. She has absolutely no idea how to deal with the public. She has been the manager long before the place became condos. I cannot understand for the life of me why she is still there. Surely, the "upper management" must realize how rude and unwelcoming she is! In addition, the place has NOT been newly renovated as all they did was freshly paint each room and slightly "freshen them up." It such a shame that the place has gone downhill. I miss staying there very much but I refuse to deal with a rude manager, and shabby rooms. Maybe some day they will really renovate and get a new manager and then I would consider it again.

i was only there for one-two nights. i had to wash the glasses, and coffee cups before i could use them - they were filthy dirty with lipstick smudges all over the coffee cups. the bathtub had hair in it. the carpet was taped together in one place. upon checking in she told me to come back in one hour (even though we were there around 10am then we had to wait for them to change out the tv's because they were not working but we still only ended up with one in the living room - they never replace the one in the bedroom. the bathroom out by the pool was filty dirty and had dirty towels draped all over the back of the toilet. the lady that works the front desk was not friendly to us even though i sat in the office waiting for the room and observed that she was very helpful and friendly to other people that came in. do not plan on staying here again!!! i have stayed at widlwood crest and the people are so much more friendlier and go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy your stay.

Very mean and rude women at front desk.
Elevator area smelled very bad - trash spilling out all over.
Newly renovated - I don't think so!
Advertised internet access but didn't say that it cost $5 an hour!
Room next to mine had about 15 people staying in there and they had music blasting till 1:00 am and then at 7:30 am started the music again.
Pool bathroom - dirty, lightbulb dangling, smelly.
Stayed there years ago and it was beautiful - NOT ANY MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Parking spots designated and very, very tight%
It was not a good vacation destination!
