Enjoyed our 2 nite stay there. Beach location is exceptional and our room had a view (someone earlier complained that the Convention Center got in the way of the ocean view but I think that's hypercritical). The rooms are on the older side as it is a Historic Listed building but clean and sufficiently roomy. AC did the job just... More

Booked our room back in February 2015 for ocean front room. We get down there to find out our room was in the back of the hotel. The lady at the desk said I have a ocean front room available for 316.00 dollars a night . I paid 204 deposit when I made our reservation in February. Needless to say... More

Well maintained. Great location right across from the beach. Easy access to everything. Very charming .. Clean interior..Steps are a killer if you aren't used to walking up them but we were told this. The room with the porch is the best way to stay. Gives you more room and on the first floor (still steps to walk up to... More

We had an excellent stay at the Hotel. The location is perfect, service was excellent, and the room was very clean. We were surprised to find a refrigerator in the room! The hotel is well maintained. Parking is not a problem; the hotel has its own lot. We had a small problem with our room and it was immediately attended... More

I really wanted to like this hotel. It's in a great location, has a charming wrap-around porch with rocking chairs for your use, and it's historic. My husband and I stayed in room #46, a Jacobsen room. The room was quaint and clean. However, shortly into the first evening and night, we realized that the bad is uncomfortably firm and... More

This is an older hotel that has been maintained well. The location is great, the staff helpful, and has the charm of old Cape May. Our room was clean, and we loved the rocking chairs on the porch. There is a breakfast shop under the hotel, bicycle rental on the side street, mini golf and arcade nearby and a fine... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary last week. We checked in late, the female check-in night staff was not very friendly to us, barely even grunted 'hello' as she checked us in. No friendly hello. We should have known this was a sign of things to come. The bed was not comfortable, there was no... More

Room is small, beds are cheap and uncomfortable, receptionist is rude, hardly any water pressure in the shower, wifi is slow, hotel is drab and needs a make over and staff are rude, I could hear the couple next door talking because the walls are paper thin. Do not stay if you have standards!

Beautiful house, beautiful location, amazing staff, and a charming experience altogether. This hotel was an absolute delight to visit, and there is a restaurant IN THE HOTEL that is famous throughout Southern New Jersey. All was great, minus one important detail - the Bed. My girlfriend and I stayed for a romantic weekend together over Memorial Day Weekend and by... More

I love it. It is a beautiful old hotel that is conviently located. The front desk personnel are warm and friendly. I have stayed here twice and plan to stay there whenever I stay in Cape May. Anyone who wants the ultimate Cape May experience should consider staying in this reasonably priced hotel
