First time staying at the Jetty. The whole place is OLD and dated. It was clean and a staff was working hard to keep it that way. Needs sprucing up. How about a paint job. Pluses, right across from the beach and great views. Negatives, old and way over prices. Small Queen size bed with only two pillows. I have... More

First time staying there and was so happy with our choice. The room was immaculate and the staff very friendly. We had wonderful views from our room or the beach and sunsets. There is also a restaurant next door (The cove) which serves breakfast and lunch. We will definitely come back again next year.

Nice, clean, well maintained older motel across the street from the beach which has views of sunrises & sunsets on the water. Decent off-season rates ($100 and lower). Evening deskman was very friendly & helpful. A lot of older folks were there which implies a good value? Note: In the am when I was leaving the deskwoman asked if everything... More

So this was my first time at Cape May. My parent come here twice a year, once in June then in September. I was rather excited to see why they like this place so much and I can now understand why! The first night we stayed in the one room that had a bed and a fold out couch. Room... More

We stayed at the Jetty Motel the weekend of September 18th. The room was plain, nothing special. It was strange to see a dehumidifier in the room. Unfortunately, it did not help with the smell. A few days later, and my purse, laptop bag, and my daughter's book bag smell like mildew. I had to wash all of our clothes... More

Nice clean motel right on the beach. Off season rates make this a vacation I want to do again. Nice pool. Bike riding is the way to get around. Very close to a Wildlife Preserve and Park. Excellent bird watching in September. Sunset Beach right at your door.

Jetty Motel is the last motel before the beach... a short walk to the sand! My two sisters & I chose Cape May for our annual "Sisters' Trip". We made our reservation for August at the Jetty Motel in December with Cindy. She was there during our stay and suggested activities and the best places to eat! Patti cleaned our... More

Room was clean and quiet. Right on the beach. Housekeeping was prompt and did a great job. Certainly an old time property but well maintained. Parking was excellent and remained so for entire weekend stay.

Quick review: Decent location. Barely passing in terms of a value/budget motel. Needs some TLC. • Service (2.5/5): The front desk person was rather robotic in nature and rather straight to the point, not particularly hospitable. After giving us a room key they did provide an activity guide for the week at Cape May which was nice. We opted out... More
