Reviewed June 26, 2012

Stayed here with family 6/18 to 6/21 for our fifth vacation at the Pan American. There were a number of upgrades and refurbishments around the pool area that were very nice. The only downer was that the restrooms by the pool were closed so you had to go inside. this hotel and it's staff has always been "A" grade when it comes to sevice and cleanliness. The only time we experienced a problem was 3 years ago when the a/c unit was not working right and they had it fixed within an hour.
The kids love this place as does my wife & I. Suggestion: The area where the old gift shop was is just kind of wasted space right now. I'm sure this could be put to better use. Maybe a game room instead of the basement. Maybe a room with checker boards and such that are not loud like video games and that adults could enjoy too. just a suggestion. keep up the good work!

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the pool have a beautiful view down the coast. Rooms on the north side get a grea...

Very clean, helpful staff. Other than the balconies not very private, no issues with our two-night stay.... Just a few blocks from the boardwalk & easy to walk or bike ride to. Right next to two basketball courts & a children's playground kept very clean by the Wildwood Crest Boro. Pool area very clean. A bit of a walk to the ocean, but that's true of all places in the area.

The hotel was clean and well maintained. The pool area was very nice. Plenty of common areas. Within 3 to 5 minutes walking time to the south end of the boardwalk. Negatives were a very tiny bathroom. The room walls were very paper thin and it was very easy to hear talking from adjacent rooms.

My wife and I visited the Pan American for 5 nights this month and it did not go well. They had a lot of construction going on both inside and out. I can understand the outside work being done in May because no one wants to work outdoors in the Winter. But the inside work could have been done over the off season when no one was there. Also, there are no internet connections in the rooms. If you want to check your email, etc. you must go down to the lobby to access their Wi-fi service. This worked out fine the first day we were there but after that two groups that had been bused in took over both the lounge and meeting room leaving all of their other guests with no where to go except for the main lobby which is far too noisy and was also occupied most of the time by the same two groups of people. To throw salt on the wounds, the lounge was cordoned off by one of these groups even when it wasn't being used! It sat empty for 90% of our stay. I complained at the front desk and all I got was a very muffled "sorry". If the Pan American wants to save a buck by not giving us Net access in the rooms, the least they can do is to make an effort to treat ALL of their guests the same in the lobby areas.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Pan American Hotel this past weekend while attending the Knights of Columbus State Convention held at the Wildwood's Convention Center. The hotel is perfectly located as it is literally a few feet from the beach, as well as within walking distance to the Convention Center on the boardwalk, restaurants, and bars. The oceanfront room was very comfortable, immaculate, and provided a spectacular view of the sunrise. The entire hotel staff provided excellent customer service with a smile, and make you feel like you are staying with family & friends. The recently renovated lobby area provides a spacious and elegant area for pleasant conversation or for enjoying the wi-fi access. The pool & sundeck area with their ocean view is perfect for rest and relaxation. The food at the in-house restaurant Alosi's is as rewarding as the pleasant service. The whole experience was excellent and is highly recomended.

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms provide excellent views of the fireworks on Friday nights and holidays during the s...

What more can you ask for? Beautifully decorated and extremely clean rooms, tranquil and relaxing setting, pool, walk across the street and you are on the beach, close to the boardwalk, wonderful staff, terrific restaurant on the premises, parking outside or underground, internet access and free flowing exceptional variety of Keurig coffee all night long! This hotel is certainly a little piece of heaven and is not to be missed if you are planning a romantic weekend, family vacation or even a friends weekend/vacation! I have done some traveling in my time and this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed. If you are planning a trip to the Jersey Shore, do yourself a favor and book your stay at the Pan-American...you won't be sorry!!!
