Best part is its dog friendly and you are right on the Beach. Unable to acess WIFI. Staff is very pleasnt,Parking at Hotel for a Truck was a little difficult, only two possible spots, or you head to the street. Will continue to visit The Palace.

I booked this room for the March Marathon. Booking the room was very easy even though the hotel was not yet open for the season when I called. Easy check in and very friendly and helpful front desk. Location is across the street from the ocean and close enough to down town activities. I can not speak for the summer... More

This property was a great find for our rally to Cape May group. Management was very accomadating to us and our room was clean and spacous. I would recommend this property to all visitors. The only negative would be the TV size. The continental breakfest was one of the best iv'e had

I would never stay at this hotel again! I registered late for a convention which was being held at a nearby hotel, and The Palace was recommended. The recommendation must have been a practical joke! Two different front desk persons were rude. The rooms, while clean, were dated from the '60s, the TV was at least 15 years old with... More

Allyne P, General Manager at Palace Hotel, responded to this review

This is a group that stays with us every year, and we have many (25 to 30 rooms) people who specifically request to stay at our hotel, even though they are required to register at the hotel that is hosting the convention. This person was probably disgruntled having to pay the convention price, when our regular rates are lower. However,... More

I organized a weekend trip for our club and could not have been more satisfied. From the first phone call until checkout, I have nothing but compliments for this hotel and the staff. The room rates cannot be beat for what's included. Each room had an balcony and ocean view - most had a side view but that was enough... More

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
