I have read some of the negative reviews for this hotel and disagree with most of them. Staff is fine. Elevators are clean. Parking is right there, on site, no problem. There is even parking under the building and believe me, this was great because the 3 days we were there it rained. The room was perfect. The couch was... More

Well it was our first visit at The Royal Hawaiian. We where a little nervous, after reading negative reviews. BUT HONESTLY AFTER ARRIVING WHERE PLEASTLY SUPPRISED! This was the first time we brought our small dog Owen to the shore. And since there aren't a lot of pet friendly motels in Wildwood. We where politely welcomed. And so was our... More

We visited the Royal Hawaiian when my daughter was in middle school and she fell in love with the hotel. When she got older she never forgot her wildwood home away from home. She has visited numerous times a year with family and friends. This past Labor Day weekend my daughter and a few friends were treated with complete disrespect.... More

We regret your daughter feels this way, there is always two sides to a story. It was 10:00 PM at night on a Holiday weekend. When they came in to the office in the morning and made a request for pillows they received them promptly. More

The pool hour to close was 8pm and when you get back kids want to go swimming but they can't looks all run down and we ask for another blanket it to our last night to get one. It was not a good experience with them I would not recommend them to anyone they are not children friendly

I was excited to stay in the Royal Hawaiian Resort because I had stayed their as a child and remember enjoying our vacation.

When ever items are lost or misplaced it is always housekeeping to blame. We brought this to the maids attention and they did not know what we were talking about. We viewed the surveillance equipment for a 14 hour time lapse, at four key locations. We noticed the customer coming and going with the bag in question. At 5:00 PM... More

The pool is the best part of this place. It is located beachfront, but the parking is super confined and awkward. The room was clean enough, just old and tight. The maids were really nice people. There's a game room for the kiddos, onsite laundry for $2 a pop and a café, but we didn't check that out. If your... More

The parking spots are typical of all Motels in the area. As far as the other problem if you had mentioned this to us we could of resolve the problems. You have two switches for the a/c to adjust the flow of air in the room. If you asked us we could have directed you to this simple remedy. More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Royal Hawaiian Beach Resort in Wildwood Crest, NJ. We have been visiting the Jersey Shore for many years and by far this hotel was the absolute worst.

Pros: Close to the beach, AWESOME pool, shower next to pool/beach, covered parking, walking distance to boardwalk (although a little longer than I planned) Cons: Overpriced, very outdated, not the friendliest staff, moldy cushions on couch, weird smell in the rooms, stains on sheets...our ocean view room was definitely not ocean view. We were on the 2nd floor right behind... More

We are sorry your stay was not what you expected, but if you mentioned your problems we would have fixed them for you. When your room is located on the second floor we always inform the customer on the phone and in writing on your confirmation. Because of the design of the building the view is blocked of the Beach.

I have never been so disappointed. My true review was not originally published. I will keep it short and say that this was the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed at, the management is terrible. A nightmare...couldn't wait to come home. Tried to leave the first night but because of the beach blast every hotel was booked.
