The location is nice- still a water view (if you're above the first floor) but not right on the beach. The room was clean and well-kept. The pool area was very well kept, and they had lots of options for non-beach activities (swimming, grilling, ping pong, mini-golf) Overall it was a nice stay for our family of 5. I liked...

Absolutely loved this place. The room was clean, great view from the balcony, and they enforce their rules of the pool. It was so nice to go to a place where you can actually relax and enjoy a nice quiet swim in the heated pool, without screaming or being splashed or runover by pool toys. The spa tub in our...

Rooms were somewhat updated but very small. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and the sheets were like sandpaper. I paid for two nights but left after the first day and moved to a different hotel.

We recently stayed there with my daughter and little granddaughters. We enjoyed the pools. Both are a good size and the girls loved the slide ! The motel is clean and convenient to the beach. Only bad experience was that the tub was extremely slippery and my husband fell. I reported it to the desk immediately and they were very...

We stay at the shalimar every summer. We love it, our kids 5/8/11 always have a blast and meet a ton of kids that they hang out with for the week. They love jumping off the diving board or going down the slide. It's nice to bbq on one of the grills and hang out outside your room at night....

Prompt, courteous service. We are staying in Room type A with a balcony. Room is clean and comfortable and balcony has ocean view. Looking forward to returning again next year! They have a area to barbecue if you are on vacation with a large party. The pool is refreshing for a quick dip.

Took a second, short trip to Wildwood Crest this weekend and stayed at the Shalimar. Booked a Friday and Saturday night about a week in advance. I had never stayed there before but noticed on earlier trips that it looked from the outside like it had been recently refurbished. I booked a basic, two queen sized bed room with a...

The rooms are photoshop and the pictures that are showing on their website, if looking for more amenities do not chose this place. The pool area is good, however not too many umbrellas to take time out eat something while kids enjoying the pool.

Our photos are exactly taken from the rooms within the past two years and are exactly what the rooms look like with no photoshopping. The pictures on the website are organized according to the room types. All of our amenities are listed accurately on our site, including our gym, steam room, elevator, 24 hour desk service.

Nice visit! Went for one of my kids birthdays. Room was nothing special. Small, but clean. Close to the beach and the Kids loved the swimming pool! Only thing I would change is upgrading the televisions!
