I have been going to the Blue Marlin for 43 years and never want to go anywhere else! It's just like home and Linda and Charlie are the BEST! The rooms are cleaned by the best cleaning staff anywhere and the location to everything can't be beat. Just steps to the best beach in the world. Someday I will go...

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...

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. The people are nice-- more like family, the location is nice--ten steps from the sand, the beach is nice-- and clean!!!! Linda is an amazing person and she will...

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...

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...

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...

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...
