Very nice and clean. The room we had was 2 floors with tons of balcony space. Downstairs contained half bath, kitchen and living room. 2nd floor had 2 br and a full bath. 1st br had 2 queen beds whick worked out good for the kids. The 2nd br had a double (wish the bed was bigger). Very nice pool....

I have been coming to Wildwood with my family and specifically to the Shalimar for 30 plus years. The location is great! One block from the beach and close enough to walk to the beginning of the boardwalk (about 11 blocks) but far enough away to be in a pretty quiet area. There is an elevator for easy access to...

Thank you for your updated review! We put in an entirely new and upgraded wifi system this year which has extensively broadened the coverage for guests, with many more access points all over the building. We also work hard to maintain this new system working properly. We appreciate your noticing and writing about it - and thank you for your...

The hotel as a whole is not bad. People are friendly and hotel is close to the beach. However, the parking is extremely cramped, in fact expect to leave with a ding or two and the pool pictures were expertly photo- shopped, it is no where as large as it looks.

Thank you for your comments. Most parking lots on the island are very crowded during the height of the season, but dings are not at all common or an issue. We also have 24 hour security/office staff to assist our customers any time they may have trouble, whether it be parking or any other issue. Our pool pictures are not...

What I liked: Room was clean, pool was great, customer service was very professional and it's on a great location. What I didn't like: Towels feel like sand paper. TV (old tube TVs) had no remote. Radio was broken. Extra blanket in dresser smelled old and musty. I would try it again because overall it was a nice hotel.

Just got back from our annual trek down to Wildwood for the NJKofC Convention, stayed at the Shalimar again. Another fantastic weekend, except for the weather, which Aldo and Maria couldn't control. The staff and accomodations were 1st rate, again. Highly recommend staying there

Stayed at this hotel back in August 2015. Sorry, but what a dump my room was. Needs major renovation and updating. This was my first time in Wildwood and the room dampened my spirits somewhat. Granted, we weren't there to stay in the room but still. I'm usually not one to give bad reviews. I can always find something positive...

My Wife and I wanted to bring the kids to the Jersey shore for their first time as we live in Ohio. We had stayed at the Shalimar several times but, not in the last 10 years. It was nice to find that the same owners are there and run a tight ship, so all can enjoy the premises equally....

I booked the Shalimar Resort at the last minute. They had one room available and it was close to the beach so I booked it. I was pleased with the customer service. I had requested a first floor room because I was traveling with my grandmother. Even with the last minute booking, they gave me a first story room. One...

D G - thank you for your review and we are really glad to hear that you enjoy it here! We completely understand that the wifi is frustrating. Unfortunately, what many people do not understand is that Wildwood is an island with very limited infrastructure in that sense. It is not an urban or suburban area - we are more...

I have been going to the Shalimar for over 7 years despite them occasionally screwing up our reservations and not making accommodations for their mistakes. They offered no discounts or anything. This past year they said there were things broken in the room. When I called to discuss what happened Maria was extremely rude and unprofessional. All I wanted to...

This guest had been coming to the Shalimar for several years. However, we have had consistent issues with the condition of their room upon check out. We have made numerous attempts to address this issue with the guest over the years in every way possible, but to no affect. We continued to welcome them back. This year, upon check out,...
