  • Fun weekend

    by Basalamana on 2019-07-08 07:38 pm

    Just spent the holiday weekend at the Caribbean Motel. The property is historic and lovingly maintained. The vibe for me was one of nostalgia. I remember as a child driving up and down the island, checking out the blocks and blocks of themed motels, lit up at night. Sadly, many are gone, which makes the Caribbean so special. Our room was comfortable and very clean, on the second floor overlooking the pool. The decor was fun and of the era, with a gorgeous, vintage tiled bathroom (if you're into that. I am). 60s music playing overhead adds to the fun atmosphere. The music plays in your room too if you want. The pool is sparkling and perfect for kids (and grown ups). The location is ideal: within 2 blocks of the boardwalk and beach. We had a great time. It's a cool place.

  • Excellent stay

    Love the Caribbean. This was not my first stay here. It's one of my favorite motels in wildwood crest. Love the historic and doo woo theme. Very accommodating to our needs. Extremely clean rooms and our maid Donna was incredible! Treated us like we were family. We could t have asked for a better stay!

  • Great Time

    by Laura W on 2019-01-11 07:08 am

    We stayed at the motel for a couple of days. The rooms and grounds are clean and well maintained. The owners where onsite and the welcome reception - Wings and Yuengs was a nice touch that you do not get anywhere else! Not the mentions the wings where so good wish I knew where they were catered from!

    The pool was small but nice for a swim after the beach.

  • Wildwood Bike Week

    by drftr09 on 2018-09-10 05:05 pm

    Through the years I've been to "Roar to the Shore" bike week 7 or 8 times and stayed in Wildwood several times other than bike week as well. I tried several different hotels during my stays and really only found one or two that I wouldn't go back to stay. Most vacationers seem loyal to the hotel where they stay and yes this year I ventured off my beaten path for a different experience. Not to say I've been disappointed with past stays but variety is the spice of life. This time, on my second trip this year to Wildwood Crest, I decided on the Caribbean Motel. For me... it's easy to find and at a great location. The South end of the boardwalk is very close, several restaurants are walking distance and yes let's not forget about the beach, the beach is, what I'd call across the street. The OCEAN is a whole 'nuther story! I swear Wildwood has the worlds largest beach... but back to the motel review. First, if you've never been to the New Jersey shore, expect to be thrown back to a simpler time. Because that's just what Wildwood is... it's the best of a 50's and 60's vibe and the Caribbean Motel continues this feeling! It's exactly what I want in my New Jersey vacation. So.. I'm going to say this place is oozing with character. It's not a large resort, they don't have an Olympic size swimming pool and there's no concierge desk in the lobby for confused travelers. Instead expect a friendly staff that will help answer any of your questions or concerns. The pool is unique in it's letter "C" like shape and is perfect on a hot summer day to pad around and chill. The manager informed me of the pool hours but said if people are there and using it, they would stay open past their 8 o'clock closing time. Follow the original ramp and you'll find yourself on a second story deck and the "Cabana." This community room is unique and I can only describe it as George Jetson meets Fred Flintstone! A must see to fully understand and appreciate. Grab your favorite beverage, turn the big screen on to you favorite game and make some new friends. Okay.. now to my room, two beds, a small TV, a little kitchenette with a working refrigerator to keep your beverages and other goodies cold and a small bathroom. At times it can be tight, but I feel very manageable. Possibly my favorite part of this motel is the XM radio that plays and can be heard around the pool. They keep it on "50's on 5" or "60's on 6," playing tunes from that time period. One complaint, MAYBE, would be a day of "Margaritaville" could be played, but that's just my personal taste. Not only does this music play around the pool, but you can have it piped into your room as well, and I for one, took full advantage of this option. I loved it. It added another dimension to my Doo Wop vacation. So let me wrap this up... The staff were more like friends instead of uniformed workers paid to say, "Yes sir" and "No sir." They were there to help, share a conversation and make sure you were happy. My room was cleaned every day with plenty of fresh towels. There are plenty of other small goodies that the Caribbean Motel provides that make your Wildwood vacation unique. I really enjoyed my stay. My father who travelled with me enjoyed it too! I'm already talking about going back next summer and who knows, maybe I found my "bike week" home.

  • Just okay

    by Jstone1212 on 2018-08-14 12:21 am

    I have stayed at the Caribbean Motel in the past and returned this year. The rooms and grounds continue to be clean. If you are looking for a nice sized pool though this motel isn't for you.

    My husband and I stayed in a queen room which we did not realize was so much smaller than the king rooms (especially the bathroom). I kind of felt like my husband and I were tripping over each other the whole time we were in the room. This was okay since we weren't staying too long but I would have preferred more space and will go with a King room should we return.

    There is a great BYOB Mexican restaurant literally right behind this motel (Bandandas) which is nice and it is also walking distance to the boardwalk so there's no need to drive and park etc.

    When we checked in the staff recommended a new brew pub in town called Mud Hen which we ended up going to. It was a GREAT recommendation - the food is delicious and the drinks are fairly priced. It's a very modern day restaurant which will appeal to anyone especially those in their 20s and 30s. If you are willing to walk this is within walking distance as well so no need for a designated driver.

    Overall, I'd recommend this hotel if your priority is for a clean room that is convenient to the beach and boardwalk but I do agree with another reviewer that the prices are a little high especially for the queen room since it is just SO tiny.
