Great location. Very clean. Could use modernizing. But for the price..... I'll take printed comforters vs white down any day. My family had a great night here. Like that they don't have mandatory # of nights. Nice pool. We would definitely stay again.

My wife and three year old daughter stayed here for a weekend in August and we were very pleased. The term "motel" is not our favorite, but as we learned this is what almost all the beach front hotels are called. We had a second floor room with a nice ocean view. The room was very clean, bathroom included and... More

This is an old-style Jersey shore motel but the rooms are well-kept, clean, and comfortable. You could not ask for a better location, as it's literally steps away from one of the nicest beaches around. Pods of dolphins came right near the beach every afternoon, and there are spectacular views of the sunset next to the Cape May Lighthouse. The... More

I recently stayed at the Jetty for three days with my daughter and granddaughter. It really was a perfect stay. You cannot beat the location, so close to the beach. Also it is an easy walk in to the main part of town. You can always grab a quick bite to eat at the cafe next door. Everyone we dealt... More

We spent 3 days at the Jetty Motel last week. While the building is older, it is VERY clean and well maintained. To those of us who are regular vacationers at the Jersey Shore, the hotel brought back a lot of memories. Cindy checked us in , and was friendly, funny and helpful. The pool was a very good size...

We did a one night stay at this hotel, and stayed at the Jetty. The location is great, at the far end of the street, so there is very little traffic noise. While it is an older motel, it is kept very clean, so we were fine with our room. The people running it are extremely nice, and accommodate you... More

This is a very clean hotel for the price. The manager was also very nice and helpful. Can't beat the scenic location and value for the price! Just stayed for a night but we would return. Sunsets are beautiful

Years ago my husband and I started going to Cape May in late September. The weather is perfect, the restaurants are open and not packed to the walls. We stayed in all the expected places; the chic "to die for" hotels and B&B's. Then we discovered the The Jetty. We never looked back. Just a few feet from Sunset Beach,... More

I made this reservation because of the location as the southernmost motel in New Jersey. The amenities are limited but you wouldn't go there for that. Walk out you door and watch the sunrise over the ocean, go to the south end of the building and watch the sunset over the Cape May lighthouse, both are breathtaking. It is a... More

We love Cape May & we enjoyed our stay at The Jetty Motel. The room was clean, the staff was friendly & accommodating & the location is wonderful!!! The pool was refreshing. The hotel is steps away from the beach. Love to walk the end beach to the lighthouse, bike the promenade & the hotel is right there! Hope to... More
