I loved this place. This was a last second decision to head down to Wildwood Crest. I had read about the Doo Wop hotels in New Jersey magazine and it just sounded like fun. It reminded me of vacationing with my parents when I was a kid, when all we ever stayed at was a motel here and there. My... More

The atmosphere and character of this place are incredible! I absolutely loved the dial in the room that played the music in the hotel in your room. It was very well maintained and very clean. The staff were just great. Donna Stephanie and Margie were some of the friendliest people I've met. I've stayed in quite a few places in... More

....nice room with kitchen, clean, near pool, staff are a pleasure to chat with and will clean room at your convenience...wonderful. Something missing though this time from our Labor Day stay ...music could hardly be heard, that's just one of the reasons I love staying here. Entertainment was good...no game playing though which was lot's of fun. It would be... More

We were looking for comfort and fun, and that's what we got at the Caribbean Motel. Everywhere you look is a feast for the eyes. And on special weekends, an actual feast is also served up. We joined an island party with pulled pork, black eyed peas, and plenty of sides to keep the vegetarians among us happy. All accompanied... More

We reserved a room with queen-sized bed and kitchenette for Memorial Day weekend package. When we arrived, the surly staff literally tossed a key at us and locked the office up tight. The room had a double bed, no appliances, and a ghastly odor of mildew. Since no one was available at the office to rectify the matter, we walked... More

I am sorry to say that you had a bad experience at check in time, the room you reserved is one of our small rooms, we did offer to change your room but we do understand that you weren't happy with the room. We are happy that you did get to enjoy your weekend in the Wildwoods area. More

Booked a Labor Day weekend stay at the Caribbean after careful research and it was on the money. This is as advertised. A well cared for, renovated, clean, comfortable property run by a friendly, accomadating staff. Crescent shaped pool is clean and warm. Adults get the pool for an hour in the evening which doesn't matter because even during a... More

I LOVE THE CARIBBEAN!!!! The decor, the atmosphere, the staff, the owners, the guests....all were so very very nice. Our room was great to be in, bed was good, etc, etc. My favorite was the Cabana, it was like walking into my mother's apartment when I was a child, the furniture, lamps all were what I remember of the late...

Love the Doo Wop vibe. I had a friend coming in from Florida and I wanted to show her Wildwood. I wanted a typical, kitschy old-style Wildwood hotel that reminded me of my childhood. The Caribbean fit the bill perfectly. Aside from that, it was clean and convenient to the beach and boardwalk. The staff was super friendly and helpful.... More

My good friend, Jason and I were forced to check out of our dilapidated motel in the middle of Wildwood Crest, NJ considering we were duped by blurry pictures and the false promise of Wi-Fi. Every other motel in the area was either booked or astronomically expensive. We were in the position to suffer in this rat trap or go... More

We stayed here for almost a week. The photos we saw online were gorgeous. The only gorgeous part of the motel is the common area, or lounge. But it was steaming hot since the AC wasn't turned on. When we got to our room, the place looked outdated and felt dirty. There is a difference between retro and just being... More
