My good friend, Jason and I were forced to check out of our dilapidated motel in the middle of Wildwood Crest, NJ considering we were duped by blurry pictures and the false promise of Wi-Fi. Every other motel in the area was either booked or astronomically expensive. We were in the position to suffer in this rat trap or go home a day early. (I understand things do not always work out in life, but the breaks should happen on one's rare vacations.) We were at the mercy of another motel to take us on as guests. The Caribbean Motel was kind enough to let us stay there for two full nights despite the required 3-night minimum for Labor Day. The crescent-shaped pool is beautiful and heated. We also saved money on food considering they cook for us every night and provide free beer. The family atmosphere was also warm and welcoming. If you are traveling solo then you will not feel alone. Furthermore, they made me feel welcome and at ease, which does not always happen in these types of resorts because I have Asperger's syndrome and tend to give people the heebie-jeebies when they do not understand my harmless quirks. The staff was also tolerant toward some of my silly questions (that could have been answered by reading the welcome envelope) and were attentive to any concerns I had with the room. On another important note, it is located only a thirty-second walk from the beach and boardwalk. The place seeps with nostalgia from the 1950s as far as scenery, room ambience, music, and is total contrast from many of the condominiums that have sprouted up like cement weeds since my last family vacation to Wildwood Crest, NJ at age 7 in the late 1980s. The Caribbean Motel is part of the Doo Wop Motel District, which seeks to recapture an era destroyed by relentless progress. They seem very attentive toward constant improvement and even gave us a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) to give them compliments or criticism. I recommend this motel to anyone who wants a beautiful vacation to recapture old memories in a beach paradise that has been screwed by modernization in some parts or create new memories...
