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... More

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... More

My hubby and I come to Cape May every summer for a few days. This was our first time at The Jetty and I hope it's around for a long time. The LOCATION is fantastic! As other reviews have stated, the rooms/decor are older but immaculate and all the staff were so kind and worked their butts off. It felt... More

We booked this hotel at virtually the last minute (for cape may 'last minute' means anything with less than 4 months advance notice. It is an older property, but is well kept and not shabby. It is reasonably priced for cape may which means, expensive as all get out, but within the limits of the general public as everything gets... More

Last minute trip to Cape May, booked a "suite" in this motel, staff are friendly, great location right across from the beach, but rooms were deplorable, our so called "suite" faced the garbage dumpsters, the rooms have not been updated in more than 30 years, wallpaper peeling, very old appliances, awful smell from air conditioners, I felt bad because they...

We stayed over one night in town and were very glad to have picked the Jetty. It was right across the street from the ocean and literally a walk from the bustle of the strip at the end of the street. Kind of the best of both worlds. The staff was friendly, the room was comfortable and had a nice... More

Stayed at the Jetty last week for 3 nights. I have to agree with everyone else the staff was wonderful. The hotel itself is a bit dated. The room was clean but did have a musk smell which a few blast of free breeze I had in the car took care of. One commented said the pool area was small... More

The Jetty is an older motel, nothing fancy, but I return year after year because it has a great location on the beach, it is the last hotel on the beach, the rooms are clean and most important the staff is great and will do what they can to accommodate your needs. Also if you enjoy birding as I do,... More

Revisited here after many years and it is still the same. Although some updating may be in order, the entire place was spotless and comfortable. You cannot find a better location, the quiet end but accessible to all that Cape May has to offer. The view of the sunset is just awesome from here, as well as the majestic lighthouse... More

Very below average accommodations! Needs major updating, top floor balcony felt like it was going to fall when we walked to the steps! No elevator! Owner was very nice. Sunset is at the corner...you can see the Cape May lighthouse! The pool is very small and not attractive to look at!
