We had the weekend special, which included breakfast for two both mornings, one lunch for two and one dinner for two; as well as the beautiful. well-maintained room for two nights. All amenities are top notch....from the complimentary coffee and cookies every evening to the toiletries, micro, refrigerator, and a second...

Another great October stay. We enjoy the ocean front room. Towels are the softest and best condition in town. Our room was outfitted with kitchenette, small but OK size frig, DVD player, wall hanging large screen TV's. Room was super clean. While a basket style coffee maker is supplied, we are into Keurig's. Couch was still comfy- but small rip...

A very pleasant surprise. More like the Hyatts, Hiltons than the typical Wildwood Motel. Will definitely return. Fine breakfast at the attached restaurant. Location just off the beach and just South of the boardwalk.

This is the 4th year we have come to the Pan Am for the 50s weekend and in the past we have been very happy & comfortable. This year the room was not as clean as it usually was and the sleeper sofa had so many stains, we really didn't want to use it. The room next to us had...

Another great stay at the Pan American. We love the view from our oceanfront room. The staff always makes it that much better. Two very small problems were fixed within minutes. We can always count on the Pan American.

Even though the weather let us down with the rainy, whipping of winds & coastal flooding, the people here are amazingly warm. The friendliest staff I have ever experienced along with wonderful history all over this place.
