We just returned from our stay at this hotel. I cannot say enough good things. Lisa and Franny were amazing. Made us feel so welcomed. Our kids had an amazing time. So close to the beach, has a great pool, room was well appointed. We already booked our stay for next summer. Can't wait to go back!

We stayed at the Blue Marlin 7/31-8/2. We had a very pleasant stay. We have been traveling to the Wildwood/Cape May area forever and have stayed in various motels and campgrounds. The Blue Marlin will definitely go on the list of the ones we will return to. First impression was very courteous and friendly Lisa when I made the reservation.... More
