Overall experience: I am giving an overall rating of average based only on the other guests at the hotel. When I booked the room I was unaware that the weekend we were visiting was Elks weekend. The Elks "chapter" that basically overtook the entire hotel including the pool were out of control. They were loud, rude and you couldn't sit or walk anywhere without a cloud of cigarette smoke filling your lungs. I understand that smoking was allowed outside but this group was just out of control. They had a "DJ" in their group and it was obnoxious but we made the best of it by going to the beach, boardwalk and other attractions. (Which is what you should do while you're at the beach)
My girlfriend and I stayed in a room with a full size bed. Next time I will ask for a larger room just for the larger bed. The hotel is old but you can tell that the owners and the cleaning staff keep the whole property immaculate. For example there was some sort of spill made by one of the Elks and the next morning the maintenance man was on his hands and knees scrubbing out the stain from the concrete. After the Elks all checked out they sprayed all concrete surfaces down with bleach to clean it. If this kind of cleaning is going on outside I don't need to go into detail about the cleanliness of the rooms.
Next time we visit Wildwood we are giving the Florentine another chance on during a week without any type of groups or conventions.
