“Vacation from hell”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We traveled with White Star Tours. The rooms were old,no telephone in rooms, no amentities we are used to. I felt like I was back in the 1950's. Cramped bedroom, only 2 lamps in unit.We wondered if. the rug or couch had ever seen a shampoo. Washcloths frayed, towels thin. Area overbooked. White Star staff herded us about at breakfast time. Meals were awful.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

Hotel is one of our favorites. Always clean & the staff is very friendly. We've been going here for years. Love it! A block & 1/2 from the beach & America's greatest boardwalk. Always a good time! Royal Canadian has the largest hotel pool in Wildwood.

I've been coming here since I was a little girl with my parents! They have a pool which is open late compared to every other place around! Kids love the putt putt golf! They room we stayed in had our own table out front the room which was awesome. U can stay up later and have a good time and u don't hAve to worry about getting told to be quiet as most vacationers are enjoying themselves as well! If U are ready for bed the rooms are quiet so u won't hear anyone outside if u don't want too! Bathrooms are tiny but who cares u are on the best boardwalk n beach around. Why do u care what the bathroom is like? Shower toilet n sink are there n clean! If Ur a high class stuck up person stay away as this is a family fun friendly place full of people enjoying themselves and if I'm in wildwood I'm at the royal Canadian! Only bad thing is elevator is always hot like no ventilation but I never really used it anyway!

Room Tip: Room 224 overlooks everything and u have your own balcony and table!

RoOm was small and dingy. A/c was either to cold or to hot could not get comfortable. Beds sunk in the middle and were small. Wouldn't suggest 2 adults to sleep in one together. Was not impressed, basically it was just a place to rest our heads. Would not stay again.

This place is nasty. The rooms don't look nothing like they do online. The carpets, couches, and floors look dirty. Missing tiles out of the bathroom. Broken microwave that door doesnt close. Couple rooms down from us found BED BUGS and had to leave. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. it's A DUMP!

Like most of the other hotels in Wildwood, the Royal Canadian is a little outdated. But the rooms are clean and the location is great! The staff are family friendly and ready to assist in any way they can. The pool was sparkling clean and the pool area has lots of lounge chairs. There are a couple of grills and tables and chairs also. A small laundry area, ice machine and vending machines also near the pool area. Tuckers Irish Pub is directly across the street and offers delicious food at a great price. One block from boardwalk right in between 2 of the piers.

Room Tip: Rooms over the parking lot can get noisy - especially if a car alarm goes off! 2nd level rooms on e...
