I was traveling solo with my dog for the first time and, at all times, I felt completely safeguarded. The entire staff was extremely welcoming and warmhearted and by the end of my visit, I felt...

To make your Inn experience more intimate, I suggest you book with family and friends. We booked three rooms this way and it felt as though we had... More

My husband and I came here for one night for our son's USCG graduation. The room was extremely clean. Very easy to reach the USCG base from this location-just a few blocks away. This is an older hotel but renovated and well kept up inside and out. We needed two lightbulbs changed and Lena fixed the problem quickly while we... More

Nice location in the heart of a significent tourist community. You can walk to the beach from location which in reality is a Motel. Always clean rooms and fast checkin. I would always stay here when in Cape May. Great staff as well. Thanks !

We stayed here with our kids and were wow'd on every level. The place is spotless (and I'm a total germ freak). Literally every single surface was shiny and clean. The best part though, my kid has life-threatening food allergies. We notified the hotel before our arrival, as we were booking the room with the kitchenette so we could prepare... More

We were taking the ferry in the morning and found this great place to stay. Franco and Lena who greeted us upon our arrival were very friendly and made great suggestions for the afternoon and dinner. This isn't a fancy place, but it is very clean and very comfortable. Our room appeared to be freshly painted. The whole facility is... More

We stayed here in June for our son's graduation from the Coast Guard. (Coastie families get a discount) The room was immaculate. The owners are on site and very accommodating. Conveniently located to everything. You can walk to just about any place. And a great value, too. You'll love it!
