For me, the bottom line is "cleanliness". I don't have to stay at a hotel or motel, in particular, but I do need whichever it is to be clean. Just make sure the space is clean and inviting and I'm a happy camper.

In a recent article from Love Exploring, they published their list of the "best motels" in each state, and of course, that includes right here in the Garden State. Mary Hammel Mary Hammel



Love Exploring said "New Jersey’s Wildwood Crest is known for its classic beach town vibes and fascinating strip of mid-century modern inns, known as “Doo Wop” motels. Only two – Chateau Bleu and Caribbean Motel – are protected by the National Register of Historic Places. The latter, which opened in the 1950s, has been restored in brilliantly colorful retro style with plastic palm trees, a crescent-shaped pool, and mid-century furniture. It’s an easy stroll to the beaches and boardwalk, too."
