We arrived to the 'best' room available, which had a very offensive odor - we figured they heavily sprayed a room deodorizer over the musty smell. The bed was hard as a rock! The room was decorated with old plastic flowers. We left after one night. Our children were in a room down the hall and their bathroom had mold... More

We want our guest to enjoy a nice, relaxing, and comfortable stay when vacationing with us. I am dismayed this was not the impression we gave you, Lisa. Our guest's comfort is a top priority to us, and I'm sorry we missed the mark for you. Did you happen to mention your discomfort to one of our staff? We would... More

This is not a quaint inn or "bed and breakfast"...it's an old, cheap hotel. They are squeezing every dollar out of the location...the actual hotel is poor. Location is excellent - right on Beach Ave. Rented a room here with my husband and 2 small kids. Room size was fine, and bathroom clean and good size too. But here was... More

Literally steps to the boardwalk and ocean. There's a restaurant onsite (didnt eat there, very fine dining) as well as a cafe. Cafe has excellent coffee as well breakfast and lunch items. EXCELLENT coffee. The porch of the Macomber is so nice. It allowed our family a place to congregate and just relax and take in the scenery. Our room... More

I was pleasantly surprised! It doesn't look like much from the outside but the lobby is beautiful. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms were modern and comfortable. We had our 10 and 8 year old with us so all of us in one room was a bit cramped but we knew that going... More

My boyfriend and I love going to Cape May but sometimes struggle finding places we can afford. Luckily we found Hotel Macomber!

My husband and I stayed with our two kids in a room with two full beds. It was small but for the amount of time we spent there, it was fine. There were enough towels for everyone, the tv worked, the beds were comfy, the shower stayed hot even after the fourth person cleaned off, the ac worked fine although... More

Stayed here with some friends for a girls weekend and found accommodations to be perfect! Room #37 was HUGE and #38 was also a good size. Liked that each room had a refrigerator in it. Nice location across the street from the beach, arcade and shops with lots of places nearby to grab breakfast. Reasonable walking distance to the strip... More

My boyfriend and I went to Cape May this summer, and we had trouble finding places that were in our budget during the on-season. We stumbled upon the Hotel Macomber, and it was a great price and looked very nice. All expectations were exceeded. The customer service was excellent. The room was very nice. It was clean, smelled great, and... More

I was very disappointed with the views of the ocean this hotel afforded. Directly across the street, in front of the shore is not only a strip mall but a Convention center, which, incidentally, we had to use from time to time, because the hotel did not offer a restroom in the lobby. Although the room was clean, there was... More

We want our guests to feel comfortable and relaxed, so I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay.

That said, our guest's comfort is our top priority and I'd like to apologize for the... More

Renovated Rooms, Beach Location that can't be beat and budget friendly prices. Old Hotel sits across the Convention Center Promenade. Large Porch to enjoy, plenty of parking and friendly staff on site. They redid the baths, bedding, carpets, AC. We had a huge room 37 with an amazing ocean view. Only downside for a few would be lots of steps... More
