Port Royal Hotel
Ranked #5 of 68 Hotels in Wildwood Crest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 6, 2010

We love the Port Royal and have been coming to this hotel for the past 10 years (or more) . They are always upgrading. We usually book an ocean front room, but this time we came for a couple of nights and booked the deluxe hotel room, and were very pleased. The hotel does a great job of keeping the rooms cleaned , the lobby is beautiful, and their restaurant always serves the freshest foods. Their is no better place to stay than the Port Royal.

- Clean room & common areas.
- Friendly staff.
- Kids loved the pool (has a 9 foot deep end but no diving board).
- Easy access to the beach.
- Good restaurant in the lobby for breakfast. Didn't try dinner though.

Recently stayed at the Port Royal for 4 nights and I have to say it was phenomenal. Everything from check-in to check-out was handled professionally and the maids could not be more accomodating. We had to move from one roon to another which put a little snag in our trip but only because the people getting out of the other room refused to leave by 11 am. The front desk had the cleaning staff in there immediately and we were able to get on with our vacation in no time.

We called last minute for a reservation and I have to say the woman on the other end couldn't have been more helpful trying to find us a room for the dates we needed and from speaking with some "regulars" at the pool, we were very lucky to get a room since they are usually booked that week with a lot of "regulars".

Can't wait to go back next time! Don't think twice about booking your trip here, you won't be disappointed.

Nothing beats a vacation down at the Jersey Shore, especially if its in Wildwood Crest and at the Port Royal Hotel. We stayed there July 14-18 in a deluxe hotel room that overlooked the pool. The hotel is beautiful, superbly maintained (except for the missing ice machine on the 6th floor) and well-managed. Particular praise goes to the the household staff who are professional and friendly and who keep the rooms and common areas ultra clean. Many guests return to the same rooms on the same dates every year so you are apt to see familiar faces. When I checked out on Sunday morning, I paid my deposit for my 2011 stay - putting down $$$ 51 weeks in advance tells you that I seriously consider this a 5-star hotel and an important part of my summer vacation.

Some details: its ocean front and there is a boarded walkway from the street down to the beach (75% of the way). the pool is open from 9am until 7pm so its quiet in the evening. This isn't a place for 'college crowd of screaming 20-somethings'. Its on the trolley line so you can easily get down to the boardwalk without worrying about parking

I go every year. You may look around but is the best. Amazing clean pool, great food at the restaurant. Nice rooms and friendly staff. Pretty close to the boardwalk, and no wayward teenagers around. STAY HERE! AMAZING!

After arriving in wildwood and physically going into two other hotels to view their rooms we thought we were never going to find a place to stay that would suit our desire for a clean enviroment. Many times the reviews on this website are not completely what you find when you arrive. This hotel should be rated number one in wildwood period. I spoke to many returning travelers that had been going to the port royal for more than 10 years. The room was very clean, the lobby was very inviting, and the staff are very friendly. Rod at the front desk was a wealth of knowledge( he works as the night manager). AJ one of the lifeguards is very professional and my children really enjoyed his company as I did. They are proper and professional they seem to enjoy their job. I am a trained travel agent and have never stayed in a room so clean. My children are wall traveled an well mannered, this is a great place for a family who enjoys well behaved children not for those who allow children to act foolish. Many retired individuals whom are there to relax and enjoy. If your children are loud and not considerate of others do everyone else a favor and stay somewhere else. If your a couple or a family with children that are behaved, stop looking and stay here. I think this hotel is well worth the money, a bargin for all that you get, if you have the option of the package it's well worth the money. Oh by the way, try the frozen peach yoguart at the hotel restaurant.
ENJOY
