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. While our historic building isn't equipped with modern conveniences such as an elevator or large TVs, we think that the rustic charm shines through. 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

The hotel had a wonderful location steps from the beach. The room was clean and reasonably priced. I would definitely stay there again. It is near excellent restaurants and the rooms are very quiet. There is also a four star restaurant on the first floor.

Perfect place for couples. Excellent location, attentive staff, nice accommodations. Our home-away-from-home for our annual vacation. The Macomber is within walking distance to the Washington Mall shoppes, restaurants, live theatre, and more! Best of all, you're right across from the ocean. Can't be beat.

We stayed at the hotel for the 2014 Escape the Cape Triathlon, and it was perfect. Right on the beach, close to everything, parking, and it was CLEAN! The staff was extremely accommodating and we had a wonderful stay. The value for the price was outstanding and we're planning on staying again.

Perfect place for a weekend getaway! The hotel is centrally located to the beach and all the food/shops. We enjoyed parking at the hotel and walking the entire trip. The hotel itself is cute. This was our first time staying at a B&B style hotel. It felt like we were staying at a grandmother's house (in a good way)! Our... More

I read the bad reviews before making my reservation, and I was leery about what we might find. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are charming. The walls are thin, however we went before the "summer" season began. Being that it was off season, there were very few guests in the hotel. The hotel was not perfect, but we weren't... More
