For about a decade, the Jetty has been my 2nd choice place to stay in Cape May when my 1st is not available. Consequently I haven't needed to stay there for a couple of years. However, after my stay last week, I doubt I will come back. The rooms and decor are dated. I felt like I was transported back...

Very nice motel located on extreme west end of Ocean Ave making it excellent for sunsets. Clean and reasonable rates off season. Management helpful in making my reservation. They gave me a deal for 3 nights. I was very pleased. I will return and highly recommend this motel to everyone.

Was intrigued with the location and the price for just one night but after my stay I will not go back. I did like the location of the motel and its exterior setup but the rooms are quite dated and have that musty smell of an old motel. My only other complaint is that you need to check your bed...

I stayed at the Jetty the weekend of 4/9/2017. I enjoyed the old fashioned style (although some may find it too outdated). It was clean, the staff was friendly, and the location was great (practically on the beach). You can see the sunset over the ocean and lighthouse from in front of the motel. People drive and walk there just...

We've been going to Cape May for over 10 years. We stay at the Jetty Motel every year because of the friendly staff that goes out of there way to help their guests any chance they get! The Jetty is a clean, quaint motel and in a perfect beachfront location. The pool is a bonus! There are actually a lot...

I had wanted to try this motel for a number of years because of its unique location, and we finally did a few months back. I was shocked after having read some good reviews about it because it was a horrible experience. I don't like to write bad reviews, but people should know what a health hazard this place is....

Going in, we knew this is not an upscale chain, nor a newer motel. We found the staff to be excellent. The room was spotless and spacious. Located right across from the beach is one of the best things going for The Jetty. This place needs to be better maintained. There was wall paper peeling from the walls in both...

I stayed on the first floor so not much of a view. The room had a nice little kitchenette with a small refrigerator that worked and a microwave. The room was cleaned every day - I could tell because I could smell the cleaner they used each day when I returned from my activities. I only saw one tiny spider...

Dirty, worn furnishings. Holes in carpet covered with throw rugs you can trip on. Defective electrical outlets. Worn, dirty plumbing. As many different rates, it seemed, as there were customers. They charged us double what the people next door paid. Nasty staff. Very disinterested in guests. Housekeeping nice and tried to clean but so worn it was impossible we had...
