“Cape May in June”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

The Jetty Motel has a friendly, homey atmosphere. It is a basic motel, clean, nicely decorated and, best of all - and what you are really paying for - the beach is right across the street. The motel does not provide beach tags on the deposit system so you do have to purchase tags. Motel is built in a basic "L", so views depend on location of room - we had a nice view of the light house from the small "kitchen" window. All second floor rooms have ocean views - no elevator. First floor rooms do not. Each room has a couple chairs placed outside in front of the unit however there are no "private" balconies or patios - all common walkways. All rooms front on the pool which is average size for a motel, was clean and enjoyed by quite a few guests but not overcrowded. Unless you are a walker or bring/rent bikes, you will want to drive to most of the restaurants and shopping as it would be a bit of a hike. Our room had a kitchenette - table, coffee pot (coffee not provided bring your own), microwave, fridge, sink....they do provide dishes and utensils and dish detergent too! There is no onsite restaurant or bar. There are a couple places that are within walking distance but not the best that Cape May has to offer. Bathroom amenities are limited to soap but I usually bring my own toiletries anyway. They also provide coffee/tea and small packaged muffins & danish in the office every morning. Bring towels for the beach/pool. There is plenty of onsite parking, one space per unit. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Good ocean views from second floor.

Just came home from a 3 day weekend in Cape May and stayed at the Jetty Motel. The owner and her management team were wonderful. The location is incredible! As a owner of an exterminating company of course my biggest fear is always bed bugs and I am happy to say that I checked the room that I stayed in thoroughly and found no evidence of any such problem. Past or present. If your looking to stay in Cape May and not wanting a B&B. This motel will not disappoint you!! Trust me.

Just got back from the shore. The Jetty Motel has the warmest staff. The people who stay there are the same people we meet every year. We always meet nice people who leave as good friends. We will go back in the fall and enjoy seeing our friends from last Sept. The motel is clean and quiet. The staff is always available to answer any question you have and will tell you where the good places to eat are. Can't wait for the fall! Love to the Staff!

We enjoyed our stay at The Jetty Motel. It is a very nice, clean, no frills motel. The BEST thing is the location, right across the street from the beach, at the very end of Beach Ave. It is the last motel on Cape May, so the location is fairly quiet when compared to other motels in the thick of things on Beach Ave.

Staff were friendly. The pool was very nice and well kept.

It is a two story motel with ocean views from every second floor room. We stayed on the second floor, stairs only, if you have issues with stairs, request a first floor room. However, the ocean views are only from the second floor.

Room Amenities: We did have a fridge, but no coffee pot, microwave or hair dryer. I'm glad I read reviews first, so brought my own hair dryer and coffee pot. There is coffee available in the office, but that is not open until 8AM. We had a King bed, which was comfy enough, the room also has a table and 2 chairs, dresser, closet, and extra chair for a luggage rack and air conditioning.

Cape May is a wonderful area, with lots to do and a great family atmosphere. There is a 1.4 mile boardwalk the ends in front of The Jetty.

We would recommend this motel and would stay again.

Room Tip: Request second floor for ocean views; some rooms have kitchenettes.

This place is the best. My aunt has been staying for years and recommened the Jetty. Cindy, Patty and all of the staff from maids to desk clerks to maintenance all make you feel like part of the family. I have been here 4 times in the last year, summer, fall and spring and will be going back many more. It is clean and anyone who says otherwise like the woman who got eaten by monster bed bugs must be a competitor or someone who smoked in the room and got charged or something of that nature. Who knows, but it is clean and the rooms are cheerfully decorated. On top of all this the location is wonderful, right on the beach. This is a what I want. I dont need bottles of fancy shampoo and lotion and a large screen TV and phony desk clerks with plastic smiles like at the Hilton. I am here to enjoy the sites and the beach. Off seaon when prices are lower I have been able to get a 2nd floor room and can sit on my chair and see the ocean. I travel alone and enjoy the peace and quiet but also enjoy having conversations with the many friendly guests, (many of them repeat customers) and the staff. No smoking in rooms and no pets allowed, the is what keeps it nice and clean and peaceful. There are ashtrays supplied outside for smokers. In summer the pool is clean and refreshing and a nice size compared to larger motels that have the same size pool. As to a reviewer who said the pool should be open unit 8 pm, all of the hotels close the pool at 6:00 in the Cape. Even in July with the ocean breeze it is chilly to swim later in the evening. I will be back many more times. This is what Cape May should be all about.

The Jetty is one of the last remaining 60's style motels in Cape May. It has been maintained over the years and had some subtle updates. Two stories with all rooms having at least a refrigerator and microwave if not a kitchenette. Always clean and located at the very end of Beach Ave. It is the southernmost motel in NJ.

Room Tip: No room service or fitness center.

My friend igor stayed there in December and woke up in a bloody mess. His ankles and hands were covered with bleeding bug bites! If they rid the bugs , it is other wise a nice motel.

Room Tip: check for bed bugs
