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

We enjoyed staying here, so close to the cove! This end of the beach is my favorite place to be, so The Jetty is in the perfect location. We will gladly come back here. The 2nd floor is set up like a big balcony, with chairs and a small table to relax outside each room. We could see the beach... More

An off-season visit was again disappointing. It's a decent value for location, if all you care about is location. We stayed on NYE, and we were amused by the lack of an alarm (or any) clock in the room. The owners/staff were quite a bit beyond "informal", which was slightly off-putting. A pair of wet shorts laid out on the... More

Away from the hub bub of the arcades but still within walking distance of Convention Hall, this right-on-the-beach retro gem with a sparkling pool, and welcoming staff is a perfect spot for birders and others seeking seaside peace. Close to birding hotspots and in hearing distance of the rising and falling tides, the Jetty is a walk back in time,... More

This motel is in an excellent location at the end of Beach Ave. It has not been updated this century and it shows! Many other motels are available and should be looked into first! Lobby and staff while very accommodating leave at 6 and close down the office. Coffee pot in room but had to get coffee in lobby! Did... More

Outdated? Yes. Tired looking in some areas? Yes. Clean, clean, clean? Yes. Great value, close to the beach, rooms with ocean view, staff that's friendly and bends over backwards to accommodate your needs? Yes! Hope they never turn the Jetty Motel into a renovated "modern" motel.

Tremendous location across from the beach and adjacent to the beach by Cape May Lighthouse. Near the bird sanctuary. Walking distance to all the restaurants. Very helpful staff. I am here in April so very reasonably priced. Nice clean efficiencies - nothing fancy - but comfy. Internet works well. Pool but can't speak to that at this time of year.... More

When we drove up to the jetty we were awe inspired by the view. We got out of our car and just breathed in that great ocean air. When we walked in we were warmly greated. When we got to our room we were pleasantly surprised at how big the rooms where. The furniture is a little antiquated but still... More
