“One of the best in Wildwood!”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

I just returned from a trip to Port Royal in Wildwood Crest. The hotel was a great find. It is clean, newly updated. The rooms all have balconies, nice size with 2 sinks one in the bathroom and one in the dressing area. The lobby was well kept with a new sitting area and game room. The game room was super expensive each video game was $1.

My only issue with the pool area was there was no lifeguard on duty. The pool area was great, directly across from the beach with plenty of chairs and umbrella's. The pool is a nice size with a kiddie pool directly next to it making it easy to keep an eye on your kids. There is a restaurant/grill right across from the pool with a nice selection.

The location of this hotel is perfect if you want to be away from the chaos of the boardwalk. It's in a perfect spot to the beach, a bike route, and parks. It's in a quiet section with easy access to all the above. It's about a mile from the boardwalk. I would definitely return to this hotel.

Just got back from a great 4th of July vacation. The hotel is the best in the area. Well keep friendly and helpful staff. This place is the best kept secret in Wildwood Crest.
Already have plans to stay next year.

This hotel was fantastic for our family getaway. We stayed in a very spacious and clean efficiency suite which was located poolside on the 4th floor. This suite can definitely accomodate a family of 6-7 people comfortably. The hotel has ample outdoor parking, but we paid a mere $2 a day to park in their underground lot. It is about .5 miles from the boardwalk so we did drive there, but it was a quick and easy ride, and parking was ample on the streets at meters or in pay lots. The stay and play package was amazing..I believe we paid around $250 for our family of four to gain unlimited ride and water park access at the three piers, which was nonstop fun. The cleaning crew was friendly, thorough and efficient, and even loaned my friend detergent to run her laundry the first day there. It is right on the beach and the main and kiddie pools were clean and staffed by a vigilant lifeguard. There was even a restaurant, but we only ate from the snack far (food was good enough for a light lunch). Do yourself a favor and book this for your family trip to Wildwood. We loved the hotel AND the destination and cannot wait to return.

You have to go inthis hotel if you are travelling with kids and want perfect vacation. This hotel is not too small not too big. Very clean and offers allservices a family needs. Away from noise and cars, it is very safe. But, you can walk to boardwalk and enjoy action in a few minutes. prices are very reasonnable. Snck on the pool. restaurant for breakfast. A goodasolution for memorable vacations with kids.

Room Tip: Oceanview family suite with bunkbeds are ideal!

We stayed the week before the 4th of July for 3 nights. (We stayed here last summer as well.) We were in room 407. There are about 6 floors to the hotel. There are 2 elevators. There is an underground parking garage, for $2 a day. Keeps your car cool. They have plentiful luggage carriers available for the grabbing.

Our room had 2 queen beds, a little on the hard side, and a nice TV in an armoir, a small round table and 2 chairs, and then in a little alcove before the actual bathroom was another built in sink, mirror above, small closet, safe and refridgerator....very nice. The bathroom was clean and adequate. They have Philosophy toiletries.

The balcony in this room had 2 chairs and a small table. It overlooked the adjoining park, and you could always see the beach and ocean, to see how the conditions were. You could also see the street. Last year, our room faced the pool, and this is what I prefer.

The pool is fabulous, in 2 sections and one is large and roundish, and then you swim through a narrower section and there is another smaller roundish section where the water is 9 feet deep. It was great! Lots of chairs, and places to sit/lay, plus tables with umbrellas, all very nice and very clean.

They have a small restaurant, and it is good for breakfast, however one morning we as a party of two had to wait for 10 minutes so we decided to go elsewhere...but I ate there before for breakfast and it is very good. It has large floor to ceiling windows and it looks out over the bike path and the beach.

Access to the beach is right across the bike path, and there is a wooden pathway for awhile and then the sand...as you probably know this Wildwood beach is the widest in NJ. Lots of natural dunes, and plants too, very nice. This June, the water was so clean, I was loving it. There is a lack of shells generally in this area, so don't expect to see lots of them, as say you would up in Brick.

I love staying here, but I am going to seek out another place for August, just because it is on the expensive side, and I want to try to save a little money! I think they own the Jolly Rodger across the street, but from the reviews/pics, it isn't even in the same league as the Port Royal.

The staff is friendly, not overly so, and the housekeepers are a small army who take great pride in working here.

Room Tip: I prefer pool side, and you can go up a few levels; the elevator is not all that slow.

The hotel is somewhat pricy but extremely well taken care of. They took out the gift shop and have an amazing sitting area on the first level. The restaurant downstairs always has fast and friendly service with great food.

My wife and I have reserved the same suite at the Port Royal Hotel in the same week in June for thirteen consecutive summers. Should you do the same, here's some of what you'll find:

• The hotel is located between two treed lots: a beautifully restored public park on one side (north) and a newly renovated playground on the other (south); there are NO OBSTRUCTIONS to your view.
• The management staff is hospitable, the maintenance staff is knowledgeable, and the housekeeping staff is great.
• Whenever we have a concern, the staff does its best to address it promptly.
• Two clean pools reserved for hotel guests only.
• The beach and ocean are located right across the street.
• The on-site restaurant is delicious; the public outside snack bar at the pool is open daily.

Room Tip: South-side rooms overlook the private pool and public playground. North-side rooms overlook the pub...
