My husband and I wanted to go away and have a relaxed romantic and chill getaway. We loved the Jolly Roger! Here is our reasons why: To start, we knew we weren't going to get there on time to check in, and due to car problems we were going to get there around midnight. The owner Joe was very understanding... More

Our family has been staying at the Jolly Roger for over 40 years and this was the first year with new ownership. We did not know what to expect, but as soon as we walked through the doors you could see the improvements. The cafe was rebuilt, the pool was painted and changed to salt water, and the lobby was...

This was our first stay. It will not be our last. We found out that it recently changed management and the new owners are well on their way to making the place even better than it already is. The kitchen efficiency was well equipped with all appliances (stove, fridge, microwave, coffee machine, toaster, etc.) and that makes staying over so... More

Can't say enough about our experience at the Jolly Roger. There are a lot of places to stay at Wildwood Crest. The way to get me and my family to want to come back is the personality of the owners and staff. It is something that has been a lost art in the hotel/motel industry. Not here. We were treated...

...And in turn, we cannot say enough about "XMas"!! It is equally as GREAT to get to meet such a traveled family, one not afraid to take the next adventure and live to experience all that is out there. It is quite inspiring and, to be recognized by a family as this one, means a GREAT deal in our book.... More

It is a set of extremely unfortunate circumstances as to the timing of your husband's accident. We feel terrible about the situation and sincerely wish him a speedy recovery on all levels. We are thrilled that you have been coming here to the Jolly Roger since 1974 and it would be great to experience the stories in your mental repertoire... More

Well, we have to thank you so VERY MUCH for such a shining review and are glad to have met you and your family this year. Upon purchase of the Jolly Roger only 5 months ago, we realized very quickly that we were dealing with a guest list that was loyal as any on Earth to the Jolly Roger. We... More

When we booked our 3 night stay at The Jolly Roger I was expecting a clean friendly motel on the jersey shore will a few amenities but nothing fancy. That is exactly what we got at this motel. Yes the rooms are outdated and the lobby is straight out of the 80's complete with the wicker furniture. However the staff... More

The new owners did above and beyond on making our 4th year wonderful. The BEST pool in the Crest, and having a family owned resort that is from the area is such an edge. We will be back next year and look forward to a flawless stay at the Jolly Roger!!

After going to the Jolly Roger every July for more than 3 decades, our large group was extremely nervous about the new ownership. It turns out - we had been mistreated for the last 30 years. Cindy, Joe, and Vince - even the cleaning crew - were extremely friendly and accommodating for the entire duration of our trip. We see... More
