About the Caribbean Motel:

Since first opening in 1957, the Caribbean Motel's daring, futuristic architecture and exotic, tropical flair have enchanted families and friends. It's long been a place to escape, relax, and enjoy good fellowship. Today, you'll thrill at the pizazz of our recreated mid-century modern decor with 21st century amenities. Plus, with a fabulous location on Wildwood Crest's glitzy Ocean Avenue, you are just steps from the beach and a short walk to the boardwalk, convention center, restaurants and entertainment!

The Caribbean Motel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a proud member of Historic Hotels of America. We are the quintissential Doo Wop Motel in the Wildwoods, and have been featured in photographs, videos, magazines and newspapers all over the world! Join us this season to see what all the buzz is about!
