We booked this hotel about an hour after arriving on the beach. Price was great! Check in was smooth. Room was clean. We received a floor level room which was great for me because I was on crutches. Great family oriented atmosphere. They had an all you can eat breakfast buffet which was pretty good. And even though we checked... More

I've been coming here for 48 years. I've never seen such a dirty pool. I understand the place is old. That's ok. But there is no excuse for black mold. Bleach is cheap. The mold was very visible on the pool tile and caulking. I've been sick for days. Upper respiratory issues. Bronchitis. On antibiotics. So sad really this breaks... More

They keep rooms clean and neat but needs an upgrade, beds old and pull out unsleepable, had to use air mattress. Staff very nice and helpful. Good location for beach, away from pier activity. Will probably try different hotel next time

We returned to the Jolly Roger after a 2-year absence. The Tenaglia family has made some very nice improvements. First is the NeverLand Cafe. We thoroughly enjoyed the new all-you-can-eat, $10 breakfast buffet. The food was hot and tasty and plentiful! In addition to breakfast, lunch is available at the Cafe, and I believe afternoon smoothies as well, but we... More

I decided to go to wildwood for the night. The rate was reasonable for the last minute but the owners, family members and employees were incredible hospitable, they went out of their way as treat you as a reoccurring/yearly guest, when I spoke with them they remember my name from check-in. I stayed Thursday night and check out was on... More

My family of 3 traveled to the beach for 3 nights and 4 days this past week and stayed at the Jolly Roger Hotel. We booked a one bedroom ocean view room. When we arrived it was a little past 3 which is check in time. We were greeted but a brightly colored warm friendly lobby. It was just gorgeous.... More

Enjoyed our 3 day stay at the motel; Joe was excellent to deal with our entire stay. The room was clean but dated; the pool and grill area on the other hand was well maintained. Owners take pride in their establishment and seem to be investing with further upgrades. Good price overall

Love The Jolly Roger. Stayed as a kid. Went back with my brother. 40 years later still family friendly. Still a great price. Still excellent location for beach and boardwalk. Wildwood Crest favorite. Friendly family owns it now. Perfect place to spend a vacation.
