Jetty Motel
Ranked #31 of 37 Hotels in Cape May
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Away from the hub bub of the arcades but still within walking distance of Convention Hall, this right-on-the-beach retro gem with a sparkling pool, and welcoming staff is a perfect spot for birders and others seeking seaside peace. Close to birding hotspots and in hearing distance of the rising and falling tides, the Jetty is a walk back in time, feel-good place that is clean, comfortable and close to everything except the traffic jams. Very homey, very sweet yet offering free wifi.

This motel is in an excellent location at the end of Beach Ave. It has not been updated this century and it shows! Many other motels are available and should be looked into first! Lobby and staff while very accommodating leave at 6 and close down the office. Coffee pot in room but had to get coffee in lobby! Did have WiFi and reasonable soda machines!!!

Outdated? Yes. Tired looking in some areas? Yes. Clean, clean, clean? Yes. Great value, close to the beach, rooms with ocean view, staff that's friendly and bends over backwards to accommodate your needs? Yes!
Hope they never turn the Jetty Motel into a renovated "modern" motel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are all ocean view.

Tremendous location across from the beach and adjacent to the beach by Cape May Lighthouse. Near the bird sanctuary. Walking distance to all the restaurants. Very helpful staff. I am here in April so very reasonably priced. Nice clean efficiencies - nothing fancy - but comfy. Internet works well. Pool but can't speak to that at this time of year. But in the summer you are a nice distance away from the crowds in Cape May. There is also a cafe/ restaurant next door which is right on the beach - but not open right now.

Room Tip: Second floor is quieter. Ask for a room facing the ocean

When we drove up to the jetty we were awe inspired by the view. We got out of our car and just breathed in that great ocean air. When we walked in we were warmly greated. When we got to our room we were pleasantly surprised at how big the rooms where. The furniture is a little antiquated but still nice. We liked the pool and small meeting places. It was a great experience. The location gets the highest mark

Room Tip: Try to get one facing the ocean.

I had trouble choosing a place to stay online and the B&B's seemed to be out of our price range. We arrived in Cape May at sunset and drove to the end of the point and watched a glorious sunset. Since the hotel was right there we went in to find out how much it was and decided to stay.

We spent two nights and the money we saved was spent on really wonderful jewelery and art work.... Now we have good memories of our vacation and also can appreciate our purchases for years to come.

The beds were hard but it was nice to have a kitchen...the first night we brought out our snacks for our meal since we were tired from our trip.

Breakfasts nearby were fabulous and the staff made great recomendations for dinner too.

Room Tip: There is no elevator and we had to lug our suitcase up steep stairs....so first floor might be easie...
