Everyone else's reviews say most of it. The motel is a great location to the beach. The pool is great and the kiddie area is perfect. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Our only complaint is that at 7:30pm the woman on duty wanted to close up the pool when we were told we had until 9pm and we had just... More

My husband, myself and our adult daughter stayed at the Caribbean Motel over Memorial Day weekend. This was our second time staying there and loved every minute of it. The owners Carolyn and George really make you feel like you are part of their family and remember your names as though they have known you for years. From the cleaning... More

This motel is on the National Registry of Historic Places and justifiably so. We were here for a tiki weekend sponsored by Retro Roadmap, and as another reviewer said they went out of the way to accommodate all our activities. The beds were comfy and the in-room music option was a fun little treat. We enjoyed our time spend in... More

My family stayed at this cozy motel in Wildwood NJ as part of a Vintage Tiki weekend. What a fun time! The owners of the Caribbean pulled out all of the stops to make my family and friends feel special, including a pig roast and happy hour snacks and drinks. This was all part of a special event and not... More

Best family friendly motel and I have been going here for the last 3 years and as a family we look forward to do so every summer. The staff is like family and they never forget your face and are so loving and respectful. The owners are such a sweet couple who put the time and effort into knowing us... More

The Caribbean Motel sponsored a Tiki weekend at their lovingly restored, mid fifties vintage motel and we had a ball. The rooms were very clean, large, functional and comfortable. It's location can't be beat, only a couple of blocks to the boardwalk on the quiet side of Wildwood (which isn't a bad thing at all). The owners bent over backwards... More

Included in our motel room for the weekend was dinner on Friday and Saturday, brunch on Sunday and entertainment on Friday and Saturday night. Beef BBQ, Smoked pulled pork and chicken and corn on the cob. Everything was delicious and plentiful! Loved the retro décor of the place - quite an experience.

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
