My wife and I called around Wildwood Crest on short notice to see if there were any vacancies for the weekend. Having stayed at the 'Roger several times as an adult, and for many years during my childhood, we were please that they had a room available.
Our Pool-view Efficiency room was exceptionally clean, had ample supplies of towels, pillows, sheets, dish soap and a dishrag. Upon entering, it was obvious that the carpets also had recently been professionally cleaned (wife is in the carpet cleaning business and recognized this). Staff was very professional and helpful and both the lobby and property seemed clean and well maintained. Maid service was excellent and we saw a groundskeeper sweeping up in the parking lot and corridors.
Much like other "Motor Inns" in Wildwood Crest, the decor (color scheme, bathroom design, etc.) at the 'Roger is dated (think 1970's esque). Unless you are planning to spend large amounts of money staying at the big hotel across the street, this is the standard for the typical Wildwood Crest Motel. This can be very difficult for out of state travelers to understand as they are not as familiar with the area as those of us from New Jersey and neighboring states. Part of the allure of Wildwood Crest are these older motels and while the 'Roger may appear as if it's from another era, it is both well maintained, very cleaned and courteously staffed which is why we are repeat visitors.
The only real issue (as it has always been) is the placement of the air conditioning units, which seem to blow directly at the bed. If there is any way that the Management could fix this problem, it would be great.
All in all, great stay at the Jolly Roger and would recommend to others.
