We had to travel to Cape May to handle some business ( it's April and no one is around). Stopped at MDL Hotel to see if we could get a room for one night (6 April) for both of us and our small canine family member. No problem - we got a clean, comfortable room (albeit small), nicely appointed, convenient... More

We got a great room on first level with porch and rocking chairs, although our room was very small, this compensated for it. Great breakfast included and lobby full of antiques and character. very nice and nice caretakers - i.e. i forgot my computer charger and they mailed it back to me.

The hotel in which we normally stay in Cape May, was booked, so we stayed here. When I entered the room, the first thing I thought was that it was cute, BUT I expected so much more. It was quite outdated, especially the bathroom. There were not enough outlets in the room, and the heater was very loud, and when... More

We found this to be the ideal location for the Jazz Festival last November, and are staying here again for the Jazz Festival the end of May. We most recently stayed for the wine school weekend in February. If you park in the main parking lot, there is a gentle ramp to the lobby level. From there, there are two... More

My husband and I needed a long weekend vacation and this hotel was one of the few on the beach and with a restaurant that was available and the off-season rate was very reasonable. we were on the third floor with a king bed. the room was nice, tho I have to admit I'd be hesitant to pay the in-season...

This place is weird. The guy at the desk was really negative and the room had water dripping from the ceiling. The view was nice, but the room was small and I didn't sleep well in the bed. It's also overpriced. I've stayed in small beach motels for less money that were better maintained. I wouldn't stay here again.

The hotel sits next to a bar, it was loud until 2 am. The rooms are old and musty and gross. The free breakfast is about the only great thing about this place. Overpriced and in need of some renovations. The staff is very nice but honestly seem a little clueless. Too many other nice places in Cape May to... More

In mid-December 2013, I stayed in Room 119 at the Marquis de Lafayette in Cape May. While, small, it was very comfy - clean, neat and well-equipped with a hair dryer, fridge, microwave and coffee pot - and since it was just me and my small dog, we fared very well. Right across from the beach, I could hear the... More

A group of us (5 ladies) stayed at this hotel last weekend for a Christmas in Cape May trip. This was the only hotel that had any rooms left so we didn't have much of a choice. Regardless, I tried to book online but the prices were ludicrous so I called to see if they could give me a better... More
