Room was clean, great view in every room. Pool is beautiful and hotel is on beach. Easy drive to Cape May, and the boardwalk. Had a very nice relaxing weekend, drive to Stone Harbor for dinner only 15 minutes away

Although we haven't stayed at the El Coronado yet (our vacation is set for the beginning of summer) I wanted to write a small blurb about the customer service experience. We had to adjust our dates and cut a day off of our stay. I spoke with Antoinette and she was so kind and helpful. It's reassuring to know we...

Thanks, ANDM2595...we find Antonette an amazing asset to our staff as well. Stop by the Front Desk evenings and you'll find her passing on sunshine!

Certainly one of the nicest hotels in Wildwood Crest. Clean rooms/nice decor, great staff, pool, workout room, etc. The hotel cafe does a really good job and has a substantial menu. Good pricing. Ocean view balconies are small though, with enough room for only two people. Right on the beach and sufficient parking.

Staff was friendly, package is a good deal, rooms clean and well appointed. HOWEVER, this is the second time I have been there when they provide NO HEAT, just excuses. I go mostly off season. So plan on freezing if the weather turns or bring a space heater because blankets are also limited.

Sorry about that, funbutfreezin, but we always convert the hotel to AC before Memorial Day Weekend and sometimes the weather can be a bit cooler mid May. I held off one week last year and the weather was warm and nobody wanted heat. My apologies.

The stay at El Coronado was overall excellent. The staff was friendly and the package was great. However the toilet kept running and there were no tissues (Kleenex) in the room when we checked in. Again we will return and recommend the hotel for a weekend getaway.

Excellent - says's it ALL, I have stayed at the El Coronado Resort many times and it is my preferred location. The resort is well managed and hotel rooms are clean. The room was on the south side, overlooking the pool, with a nice view of the ocean. It had a sofa-bed, a comfortable King bed, and 6 pillows and...

The room was very nice and clean, spacious, with a great view. People are friendly. We stay here all the time and they have great packages that are worth the money. Would stay here again. The dining room is a great place for breakfast.
