The Jetty Motel is located on the end of Ocean Avenue steps away from the beach. I chose this motel for three reasons; location, price and convenience to the Cape May Ferry. Traveling in April which is still off season for Cape May has many benefits, the top of which are no crowds and great prices on hotels. Other reviews... More

Our first time to Cape May and this motel was scary. After returning from dinner we got our kids ready for bed and then a light fixture fell off of the ceiling - the nut and bolt that held the fixture up just fell to the floor and the glass light fixture and bulb were hanging by the wires. Luckily... More

Nothing fancy here, but in a great location...always clean inside and out, nice pool area, and they have parking. Pool water is usually cold though because its in the sun minimally if you care about being in and by the pool all the time.

I write this in the depths of a snowy English winter. I realise how much I am missing the Jetty Motel and gorgeous Cape May.It made a great holiday extra brilliant. We stayed here for four days at the end of a months trip to the USA and Canada. I stayed at the Chateau Lake Louise on the same trip... More

On a whim, we decided to visit the beach on New Year's Eve. Many hotels/motels are seasonal in these beach communities, so we were happy that the Jetty was open and had a room available for a great off-season rate. The rooms are spacious and very clean, and ours had a small kitchenette available that we actually used to enjoy... More

Cape May accommodation in General is expensive so this place is good vue considering ovation. You tely pay for location. Rooms are dated, don't expect new and renovated but that's okay with us as we weren't in the room much. Nice to have kitchen facilities. Easy walking distance to everything and beach right across the street

We stayed with our two boys (8 and 11) for one night. It was great they didn't have a mandatory # of nights. We loved the location as the southern most motel in NJ. It was a quick walk to the beach and there are a few restaurants in walking distance. The room was clean and spacious. It's not very... More

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
