We enjoyed our one night stay at Pan American. It was our first time to Wildwood and we loved the location of this hotel. It was quiet yet close enough to the boardwalk to walk. The restaurant on site was very good and the counter service by the pool was also tasty. Our room was clean and modern and the... More

Very clean. Beautiful. Cozy room. Would come back again anytime. Close to the boardwalk but yet far enough any to be quiet. Gorgeous view. Restaurant on grounds has great food. Portion size is perfect. No complaints here. Looking around I wouldn't stay any where else.
