Going in, we knew this is not an upscale chain, nor a newer motel. We found the staff to be excellent. The room was spotless and spacious. Located right across from the beach is one of the best things going for The Jetty. This place needs to be better maintained. There was wall paper peeling from the walls in both...

I stayed on the first floor so not much of a view. The room had a nice little kitchenette with a small refrigerator that worked and a microwave. The room was cleaned every day - I could tell because I could smell the cleaner they used each day when I returned from my activities. I only saw one tiny spider...

Dirty, worn furnishings. Holes in carpet covered with throw rugs you can trip on. Defective electrical outlets. Worn, dirty plumbing. As many different rates, it seemed, as there were customers. They charged us double what the people next door paid. Nasty staff. Very disinterested in guests. Housekeeping nice and tried to clean but so worn it was impossible we had...

The motel is clean but very dated. Pool is clean but very worn. Our view in the large double room of 201 was amazing of the beach. I probably would stay somewhere nicer next visit to cape may. Fridge didn't work when we arrived but they replaced it quickly.

I've stayed at the Jetty many times and will stay again when going to Cape May. Love the location. The place is clean and well maintained with friendly staff. It would be great to see the place get some updating, but not so much as it loses it's charm as a small, family-owned motel.

This was my first stay at the Jetty. Though the room was a bit out-dated, it was clean and had a view of the lighthouse from our kitchen window. It was across the street from the ocean and next door to a restaurant who sold coffee and breakfast to go. There was a minor cleaning issue, but the owners apologized...

This was our second stay. The location could not be better -- steps away from the best beach in Cape May. Our kitchenette window had a view of the light house. Cindy and her staff graciously accommodated a surprise overnight guest for us -- at no charge -- and the housekeeping staff is top-notch. The place is just charming, and...

This is a total dump!! Not much else to describe it. They were nice enough to give me my money back though after I couldn't stay there because it was a dump. Old, dingy, dated, rusty ant traps all over.... Parking lot was creepy and the windows were filthy. Never again you get what pay for!
