Pan American continues to be our go to for Wildwood and Cape May visits. Super cleaning, always saw staff cleaning lobby, pool area, rooms etc. Maid service is by request only- good for us. They have the softest towels. We go with the package includes breakfast every day, one lunch and one dinner. This year a voucher for dinner good at Crest Tavern- fine by us- we went twice. Promenade right on beach a few blocks to Boardwalk. Most restaurants closed, but our favs open- Aloisi's' Crest, Harbor View-on way to Cape May, Dog Tooth. Our Ocean front efficiency includes all necessary amenities, pots, pans etc. The things we bring- Keurig, big boy ice cube tray, big boy cups. DVD had sound issue- promptly fixed. Great location to bridge to Cape May. Furniture while all still comfy and clean is getting a little nicked. Heated pool- still usable early Oct. and wide open, retro rock perfect for us.

What a delightful review! Thank you very much. I appreciate it that you enjoy so many of the amenities at the hotel as well as the local area. The heated pool provides fun and relaxation any time. The package pricing which includes some meals is indeed a good option in the Spring and Fall seasons. We hope you will join us again next year for another "Outstanding Early October stay". Thanks again.

We were at the Pan Am for 4 nights a week ago and we loved it! It was clean, very nicely decorated, and we did not have any issues,...Everyone was friendly from the front desk, and the maids were also very friendly...I can't believe some of these bad reviews, because like I said my daughter, and my husband and I had a great time and we will be coming back, God willing......We wanted to come same time next year but you were already booked....

You won't go wrong booking with this hotel. The staff is exceptional. We had an ocean front efficiency. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. I wish my bed at home was as luxiourous! We enjoyed relaxing on the patio each morning and evening while we "people watched" and breathed in the sea air. The pool area was clean and well maintained -I especially enjoyed the oldies music played outdoors. I have just one suggestion -please provide a sponge and dish towel for the kitchentte. If we ever travel back to this area -we won't hesitate to book with Pan American.

We truly enjoyed our recent stay at the Pan American Hotel, but the stays there get better and better each year with Mr. Kelly - the GM. We had a beachfront, 1-bedroom efficiency with a private balcony as we get very year. The room is always very clean regardless of time of season. My special needs son enjoyed the heated pool during the day and was consistently smiling while enjoying their fire pit after dinner. Like us, many of the guests have been bringing their families to the Pan Am for many years and now have children and grandchildren that meet them here to enjoy a big family vacation together. We will be bringing 3 generations together next June. The Pan American's location makes it easy to walk to the Boardwalk for shopping, dining, and rides. We love being right on the beach, too. Mr. Kelly seems to know every guest and consistently connects throughout your stay. This year, he took our son to Alosis for French fries (his favorite) and made his entire week! I can recommend this hotel for any family that wants to enjoy every aspect of what makes the Wildwoods great. We are looking forward to going back next year and experiencing another year of the first class treatment of Mr. Kelly and his wonderful team.
