Family style hotel across the street from the beach. Older, but, very clean and quiet property. The front desk staff was very pleasant and had beach toys as a gift for my 2 1/2 yo Grandson at check in. Our room was large with a king and a double bed, large bathroom and a kitchenette. We had a great stay,... More

We had a negative taste in our mouth prior to check in due to the rude, unpleasant and unprofessional receptionist. Something personal came up so we were thinking of canceling our stay. We call and ask about the cancellation policy. Instead of being professional the woman laughed and said there's absolutely nothing they can do to accommodate us. Policy is... More

We have stayed at the Palace Hotel three times in the last four years. Our experience has always been very good. The hotel is old, but that is part of the charm of staying in Cape May. I love the fact that it's small, has a beautiful view of the ocean and easy access to the beach. The kitchen area... More

We stayed in the best room at the Palace Hotel and we terribly disappointed that both queen beds were hard as rocks. The bedspreads were very old, thin and looked dirty. The high price of the room certainly warranted a comfortable bed to sleep in. I heard other people complain about their beds, too. We hardly slept because of the... More

We rented a house in Cape May from Saturday to Saturday but decided to stay an extra night and went in search of a beach front hotel. Our first hotel we stumbled into was full, so we went next door to The Palace. A very grand name for rather a crappy motel. The front desk woman was very nice and... More

Parking is a problem. You must unload and park off site...not enough spots for guests...you park behind property in the residential section. We arrived early and our room was ready...great? Not really. The bedding was not changed- rumpled and black hairs in the double, peanuts on the floor, etc. Didn't bother the staff as we didn't want any problems...so off... More

You could not beat the location if you tried, right across the street from the beach. We were down for a wedding, which was about a mile away, so we were able to walk to everything, which eliminated the need to move our car. Granted the hotel is older, no pool and dated rooms (small TV, which didn't bother me;... More

The location of this hotel can't be beat. We called last minute for an overnight stay, and the Palace was one of the few places that allowed a one night stay. The staff was very friendly, and the room was comfortable. The free continental breakfast had the basics and we were able to enjoy a nice breakfast. This is a... More
