The Jetty, and its traditional Jersey motel styling, is the perfect family motel. Located at the end of Beach Ave., it's great for those wanting to get away from the maddening crowd. The staff is very friendly and used to dealing with kids, so they don't get impatient. Plus, since it has a family-friendly rep, there are tons of other kids around you, so the offspring will quickly make new friends.
Your kids will also love this place for the pool and the neat beach locale. Unlike other parts of the Cape May beach, this one is situated on a cove (with the lighthouse in the distance providing the perfect family photo backdrop). The cove positioning means the waves aren't quite as brutal as they can be further on down the line, and the little ones won't feel so threatened. And more importantly, the motel is right on the beach! Two steps and little toes are touching sand!
The only drawback is if you want to do things right in town. You'll have to drive, and parking in summer can be a hassle. But it's really such a minor thing. It's been my experience that you need little more than the beach to keep most kids occupied.
On a related note, if you get a rainy day, take a drive up the Garden State Parkway to exit 11, and you'll encounter the Cape May County Zoo. It's quite impressive for a small-town zoo...
