A Naval reunion was the reason for our first visit to the Wildwood area and the Pan American. This hotel exceeded expectations. Upon arrival, parking was ample and conveniently located beside and below the hotel. The hotel lobby was gorgeous; with plenty of comfortable seating which created a welcoming atmosphere. Our room was spotless and seemed to have been recently...

My husband and I have been coming to the Pan Am for many years with a group of our friends. We love this hotel. The staff has always been very accommodating. Hotel has special weekends where you get two breakfasts, one lunch and one dinner (at a participating restaurant) which is included in the rate. We always stay in the...

Recently stayed at the Pan American. Beautiful hotel that is oceanfront. Staff eager to please. Had a great deal with Groupon. Room was small but clean. Small balcony with nice view of the ocean. Pool looked amazing but too chilly for a swim. Fire pit was nice & inviting. Restaurant open but did not try. A nice getaway 😂

Sue, I am glad you enjoyed a "great" oceanfront getaway, and the added value of the discounted rates offered at this time with Groupon. Please join us again. Among other things, you can swim in the heated pool and savor complimentary coffee and cookies as you relax around the fire pit. Thanks so much for your review.

We have been going to the PanAm hotel for 18 plus years with a group of friends and we have never had a bad experience. The staff is wonderful and always caring. The facility is super clean.

We have been vacationing at the Pan Am every summer for over twenty years since my children were babies; they are all grown up now, but still want to go back there every summer. Some of the reasons for this is that the location of the hotel can't be beat. It's an oceanfront property that is steps away from the...
