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

Let me begin by saying that I have never, yet given this poor a rating to any hotel I have reviewed. I am a very frequent traveler and have submitted numerous reviews. I am always aware that some people might have one negative experience and that has always propelled me to try my best to be fair. But with this... More

The hotel is on Beach St in Cape May right across from the beach. It's very convenient to get to the beach and the ocean. The hotel has small rooms - certainly not suites. There was a mini balcony off our room. Mini means too small for chairs. The unit ventilator (air conditioner) sticks out onto the balcony. And as... More

This is a clean, dog friendly inn. The room was very dated, however, it was properly depicted on the inn's website. Our room did have new carpeting. The rooms have balconies which is nice. Free continental breakfast daily. Their website states free wifi. The wifi is only accessible from the 3rd floor breakfast/internet room. There is no wifi in the... More

We stayed at The Palace for 2 nights last week on a package and were very disappointed with the room for $300 a night. The king bed was hard and the mattress made crunching noises whenever you moved. The vertical blinds did not overlap well and the light on the veranda, on all night, made the room too light. There... More

I made it clear at the time of booking I was bringing a cat, then when I get there a different person at the check-in desk says "dogs only" They almost turned me away but I told them nowhere in the website or any signs in the hotel says "dogs only" and I told them when I first booked that... More
