Great family motel and a beautiful, clean pool. Very close to the beach and 2 grills to cook on.

Traveled with a family of 5 (our three children ages from 15 to 24). If you need new and fancy, don't bother. If you want a home away from home with great and friendly owners and employees (Linda is a really great person!) you will find it at the Blue Marlin. If you want to hang out at the Boardwalk,...

I have stayed in the Blue Marlin 5 times over the last 3 summers and you really just can't beat the value. It is about 100 feet from the beach, it is very clean and the people are a pleasure. You can certainly find fancier places, but you will find no place better for the money! I highly recommend you... More

I love this place. It is a wonderful place to go. Every year it keeps getting better. Everytime I am there it is a vacation full of laughs. I love it.

We have stayed at the Blue Marlin for 4 years now and will not stay anywhere else unless absolutely needed (and this just happened once) but still made it a point to come over and see Linda. The pool is so clean and warm and wonderful. The rooms are always clean, smell good and housekeeping keeps them cleaned for you... More

We just got back last night and this was our 3rd trip to the blue marlin. We could have our pick of any other motel there, but Linda is so very sweet and helpful to us and our special needs son. I would never get such great treatment anywhere else. Rooms are clean. It was fun to have a BBQ... More

A decent, very small family run no-frills motel. NOT for the solo traveller -- but who rather than me goes to Wildwood solo, anyway? This is families only. Obviously a very popular place with their loyal clientèle. However, for an area boasting interesting Doo Wop motels, especially the landmark Caribbean, why stay in a place this drab, unless it's for... More

We were pleasantly surprised by all that Wildwood Crest had to offer, what a great beach town! The Blue Marlin is one of many, many little "L-shaped" hotels from the 1950's/60's. It was a great price for being within steps to the beach. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. The owners were very nice at the front... More

The Blue Marlin is a great place to stay. Reasonable rates, clean rooms, quiet, convenient, heated pool and about 100 steps to the beach. Charlie & LInda, the owners are wonderful people and they make sure your stay there is a comfortable and enjoyable one.
