Jolly Roger Motel
Ranked #25 of 68 Hotels in Wildwood Crest
Reviewed July 15, 2014

This place is very nice and clean. We had a great stay and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Specifically, the entire family was available to either provide extra towels, answer questions, and just be friendly. Cindy was very helpful on the last day by offering use of a rinse-off shower so that we can enjoy the beach after check-out. This was extremely helpful since other days was too windy to enjoy the beach. Overall, I would definitely stay here again.

Location is very close to beach with free parking. Recommend a cart to haul beach stuff, but overall very convenient access.

I was very pleased with my stay, hotel was very clean and the staff was great. It was close to the beach and had a very nice pool. It also had laundry facilities and a ice machine. I would recommend you to stay here .

If you want to relax with your family, this is the place to go! The value that you get is outstanding. It's the family atmosphere that will make us come back! Make sure you go in to the saltwater pool!

We had a great vacation staying here the whole entire staff goes out of their way to make your stay complete no matter what you need. The pool is a great way to relax and spend time with friends and family,we cooked out at the pool side with the 4 grille they provide, the rooms were clean and the cleaning staff was great

Thanks for a wonderful week

This hotel was a great place to visit once upon a time, but it has gone down hill. One of the new owners (Joe) is an excellent person with great people skills; however, that is not the case when it comes to his brother, who was rude and unprofessional to more than one guest. I'm sadden to say that after staying at this hotel numerous times in the past, I will not be returning. The facilities need mayor renovations and updates, service was poor, the rooms feel dirty. Good luck to Joe as his brother keeps pushing guest to the hotel down the street.

This place is clean, affordable, family friendly, and close to the beach. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The pool is warm, which was great for my one year old daughter. Babies are allowed in the pool with swim diapers. The rooms are a little dated, but they are good enough. I will stay here again.

We stayed for the last weekend of June. The check in process was odd. My sister in law is 23 and had booked the room on her card. The owners informed her that she needed to be 25 or older and we told them that all our other traveling parties were above that age. They then proceeded to lecture her on the fact that it was a "quiet," family hotel,but then allowed her to go ahead and check in. The rooms were very dated especially in the bathrooms. Overall the maid service did good, didn't get a dirty feel from the place. I was disappointed that there was not a coffee maker in the room. We didn't go to the pool. It was a short walk to the beach. Got a great deal on groupon. I would recommend for budget minded families that are quiet.

Room Tip: Floor level has access outside from your patio balcony.

We appreciate the online booking source and consequently use the same check-in procedure for all registrations into the motel. There is an age registration for all guests of any room stay here at the Jolly Roger and it is stated to any groups of individual adults checking into a room, very similar to the policies used for buying cigarettes, renting a car or residing in a retirement community. Our age policy is CLEARLY WRITTEN on the confirmation made and forwarded directly to each guest. As to GroupOn, the source used to book the reservation by the guest themselves, the age policy is clearly written only a couple lines down under check-in.... impossible to miss. The guest registered for the room was a couple years shy of the age restriction and, in order to be fair to our policy of treating all guests equitably, she had to be told of the policy and the reason for its existence. It is based on history. We have been in this motel hospitality industry now over 3 decades and have discovered that a Family Atmosphere is our goal. Going over the policy is routine and, while it is never a very comfortable conversation, it is one that we feel is important to have so that a single room does not IN ANY WAY disturb the enjoyment of the other 74 rooms on the property.
We have trained the house cleaning staff to be thorough and exact in their cleaning process and presentation. Their efforts for this year of 2014 have been excellent and widely commented on in a positive fashion throughout this summer, our first year of ownership. It is nice to see that your room was satisfactory. By completing a purchase late in the pre-season, there was no time to start remodeling the bathrooms. That is an improvement we shall be working on beginning in late Fall of this year. Also, many of our rooms have coffee makers in them with the exception of the motel rooms in the front of the building.....that may also become an improvement for next summer.
Overall, it must be stated that "a budget-conscience family with a quiet disposition" is exactly what we are looking for here at the Jolly Roger!!
