We reserved a king suite, one of their larger rooms. It was very spacious and comfortable. The sleeping area is in back, the bathroom in the middle, then a sitting area in the front with a door to the balcony with a great view of the beach. This is an older motel, with 3 stories, no elevators. The bed was... More

After several years of staying here for an annual anniversary trip, I was dismayed this year to have to cancel. Having booked and paid for our weekend a year in advance, just over a week before we were scheduled to arrive, Alex called to try to convince us to accept a smaller room than what we booked. We had booked... More

Our family stayed at the Avondale for a short mid-week getaway and we'd definitely stay there again. It was nothing fancy, but it served our needs. It was conveniently located across the street from the beach and just a few blocks from the Washington Street Mall. There was adequate on-site parking and the room was extremely clean and well maintained.... More

We had the corner room on the top floor which had an amazing view. The hotel room was a nice size and clean. I liked that the bedroom and living room was separated. We went the weekend before Memorial Day which is off season but had a great time. Every morning we walked the beach and saw Dolphins. The Dolphins... More

First, we caught a break no one could have predicted. Because of weather situation, 11 straight days of sunshine. Only significant rain was on final day. That said, it was great ...and busier than any other time we've been there. Out housekeeper Nikki is a treasure we we look forward to seeing her about as much as the stay itself.... More

This place was beautiful and the view from our room was amazing. The staff was friendly and helpful and even stayed later to accommodate our check in times. The room was bigger than expected and the beds were so comfy. Great location and we will definitely be coming back this summer!

Clean room, friendly staff, great view and good price! Loved the free morning coffee and bagel. Small bathroom but it was fine. We stayed on the 3 rd floor which had a perfect view. The hotel was within walking distance of everything. Our first trip to Cape May.

Location is clearly the big sell here. Right across from the beach and walking distance to almost everything. We were in suite 106. The room is clean and ok enough but the bathroom is super tiny you could brush your teeth while sitting on the john. Worst use of space ever. Room backed up to street behind us which was... More

This hotel was very clean with fantastic view from our balcony. Centrally located to everything we wanted to see and do. Plenty of hot water for showers and always had plenty of clean towels. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great room and a great value.
