“No corner left uncut”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We have traveled to Wildwood several times staying at Le Boot just down the road. We loved everything about Le Boot except for the beds so we thought we would try something new. Our first encounter with Roman Holiday was dealing with someone parking in our assigned space - not managements fault and they were quick to go looking for the owner to move it. While they did that we went to the store. When we returned another car had parked in our space! A frustrating start. We had trouble getting our key to work so staff came to help us out and show us the trick. We went to unlock the deadbolt and he told it didn't work. Our room was dated - it looks like nothing had been done since 1970. The furniture was old and when I went to move one of the chairs the arms came off. At the sink the left us a dixi cup of dish soap. I must say that is a first! There was no hair dryer or iron. The shower might have had good water pressure if most of the water did not come out of the handle. There was a little sign next to the toilet instructing us to hold the handle down for 5 seconds to flush. There was no way to get fresh air - no screens on the window in the bedroom and no sliders in the front. We went to use the grill and followed the written instructions to start it. After several tries we got staff who responded that it following the instructions doesn't work. He was able to get it started for us and declared it a miracle. The grill never got above 300 degrees so all food was slow cooked. I will say the bed was fairly comfortable and we did have a full size refrigerator. When I went to cook on the burner in the kitchenette I accidentally touched the pan - which was metal and got a shock - literally! The location of the hotel is fantastic, just off the boardwalk and across the street from the beach. I guess with such a great location no improvements need to be made. I did like the common area on the second floor - a great place to have snacks and drinks but could use a few more tables.

We have been staying at this hotel for over 20 years and they just keep getting better. Clean, comfortable rooms. Clean, beautiful property. Directly across the street from the beach. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. On our third night we had an issue with the air conditioner. We told the manager on duty and by the time we came back from dinner they replaced the air conditioner! Wonderful quick resolution to the issue. The pool is heated, there is a small laundry room on the premises. A wonderful sundeck with a large grill. Beds were comfortable, even the pull-out couch. Full size fridge, coffee maker and microwave. I've stayed at other hotels in North Wildwood and the Roman Holiday outshines them all! A great family hotel.

We stay in Wildwood each year, though typically in the Crest. This was our first year staying at the Roman Holiday, and what a difference it was! The room we had was beautiful, it had just recently been renovated. The hotel is right across the street from the beach, and even though we were in the corner of the hotel, we still had a beach view out our front patio windows! The staff was AWESOME!! Natalie in the office was EXTREMELY helpful, sweet, and polite. I wanted to rave about her to her manager, then I came to find out SHE IS the manager. That says allot about the hotel to know that it's run by such an awesome, positive, on-top-of-it person. Natalie told us about a little deli that is right around the corner (Russo's), and it was great. We were able to go there for the few things we forgot, and we got dinner there twice. The food was fantastic, we wish we could have brought the deli home with us. The boardwalk is about 2-3 blocks from the hotel... you can see it easily from the balcony. Great location, super clean hotel, AWESOME staff. Typically by the time we leave to come home, I'm ready to go... but not this time. Next year, we will be staying a few extra nights. It's a super hotel, and it made our beach trip the best trip we've ever taken. Thanks Roman Holiday! See you next year!

Room Tip: We were in room 310 which was just recently renovated. The kitchen is beautiful, with glass tile bac...

Awesome prices considering the fact that you are literally steps from the beach. The staff was very nice and everything was spotless. Conveniently located about a minute from the boardwalk and everything that has to offer. It wasn't too overly crowded and not too loud either. Plus the best part is the pool is heated

We enjoyed our stay here. Betty took our reservation over the phone and was very nice. The hotel is right across from the beach and there is a pool on the property. The Elevator was a plus and parking was right on site. Our room had a full size fridge and there were an ice machine available. We would stay here again.

Spent memorial day weekend down in North Wildwood with my friends. Very Clean and well maintained property. Rooms were clean all around & so were the bathrooms. Most rooms have 2 Flat Screen TV's. Outdoor pool & Sundeck had many chairs available. BBQ available with free gas for guests to use. Jean at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating due to a late arrival on Friday Night. Right across the street from North Wildwood Beach & 10th Street Beach access. About 5 short blocks from the Boardwalk & Tramcar loading area... Quiet Hours at Hotel - Sign is posted in Elevator.

Only con - Parking was a little tight, but can be expected with any shore hotel.

Room Tip: Try to Book a Room on the 3rd or 4th for a unobstructed view of the Ocean.
