The motel is clean but very dated. Pool is clean but very worn. Our view in the large double room of 201 was amazing of the beach. I probably would stay somewhere nicer next visit to cape may. Fridge didn't work when we arrived but they replaced it quickly.

I've stayed at the Jetty many times and will stay again when going to Cape May. Love the location. The place is clean and well maintained with friendly staff. It would be great to see the place get some updating, but not so much as it loses it's charm as a small, family-owned motel.

This was my first stay at the Jetty. Though the room was a bit out-dated, it was clean and had a view of the lighthouse from our kitchen window. It was across the street from the ocean and next door to a restaurant who sold coffee and breakfast to go. There was a minor cleaning issue, but the owners apologized...

This was our second stay. The location could not be better -- steps away from the best beach in Cape May. Our kitchenette window had a view of the light house. Cindy and her staff graciously accommodated a surprise overnight guest for us -- at no charge -- and the housekeeping staff is top-notch. The place is just charming, and...

This is a total dump!! Not much else to describe it. They were nice enough to give me my money back though after I couldn't stay there because it was a dump. Old, dingy, dated, rusty ant traps all over.... Parking lot was creepy and the windows were filthy. Never again you get what pay for!

My hubby and I come to Cape May every summer for a few days. This was our first time at The Jetty and I hope it's around for a long time. The LOCATION is fantastic! As other reviews have stated, the rooms/decor are older but immaculate and all the staff were so kind and worked their butts off. It felt...

We booked this hotel at virtually the last minute (for cape may 'last minute' means anything with less than 4 months advance notice. It is an older property, but is well kept and not shabby. It is reasonably priced for cape may which means, expensive as all get out, but within the limits of the general public as everything gets...

Last minute trip to Cape May, booked a "suite" in this motel, staff are friendly, great location right across from the beach, but rooms were deplorable, our so called "suite" faced the garbage dumpsters, the rooms have not been updated in more than 30 years, wallpaper peeling, very old appliances, awful smell from air conditioners, I felt bad because they...

We stayed over one night in town and were very glad to have picked the Jetty. It was right across the street from the ocean and literally a walk from the bustle of the strip at the end of the street. Kind of the best of both worlds. The staff was friendly, the room was comfortable and had a nice...
