After seeing the Hotel Macomber featured in a video on the Cape May Ferry, we decided to book a stay in July. The location was excellent (right across from the beach in the heart of town), and our room was romantic (canopy bed). The hotel was clean and comfortable, and we didn't have far to go for dinner (dining at... More

We stayed for two nights in a Jacobson room on the 2nd floor. Room was very clean, nicely decorated. Air conditioning worked well and bed was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bagel shop on site is great- lots of breakfast choices on the menu. Location right across the street from the beach. The only negative for... More

Very nice comfortable room. Great location and price.The hotel has no elevator(they were very good at letting us know before hand) We were on the top floor witch didn't bother me, I can't say the same for my kids. But hey it's character and muscle building.

This hotel is in a great location and offers easy access to the beach, boardwalk, and Washington Street Mall. Due to its location, we walked everywhere and with its close access to the beach, we walked off and on so easily it was like we had a beach house. The hotel also provides free parking, and let us leave our... More

Options were limited when we booked in May for a Sunday-Wednesday August stay. I loved the location, across the street from the beach, awesome bagel shop downstairs, enjoyed the porch. But unless you are really into the old, quaint, antique feel, you can find something better. The room was old, slanted to one side that you could see and feel.... More

Stayed there with my daughter and really had a terrific time. Hotel has a terrific location with proximity to beach , shops, and convention center. Hotel was clean, plenty of parking ( which they allowed us to park early ), and will even allow for early check in if they can. Hotel offers complimentary beach towels upon request. Staff was...

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
