There are many hotels in the Crest, but we prefer the Caribbean. There are a few things that could use a small update, but you know what-a block from the beach-Close enough to boardwalk and a nice feeling of family and you forget it. I am in the fashion industry and love vintage, and my husband loves Doo-Wop and the... More

This was the first time my friends and I stayed in Wildwood. The only room we could find was at the Caribbean. From the heated pool, to the Doo Wop music playing in the room, it was perfect. A block from the beach, and 2 short blocks to the boardwalk, you never had to move your car. Quiet, clean, and... More

Stayed here for one night on a Sunday in July. I think they normally have a 2 night minimum but since it was last minute they had an opening. The first thing we noticed was this large curved ramp to walk up to the second floor. There is 50's music playing outside and in the rooms. We stayed in room... More

We are just back from a 4 night stay at the Caribbean Motel. This was the first time in a very long time that we had stayed in a motel. And the first time to stay in the Wildwoods. I researched a lot of online reviews and articles about Wildwood and Doo Wop motels. And the Caribbean sounds like one... More

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

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
