They say location is everything and they were right! Avondale by the sea is located on Beach drive and Guerney st., right across from the beach. It's 3 short blocks from the Washington Street mall, where you will find food, drinks and stores. The front desk could not have been friendlier or helpful. The bed was comfortable and I loved...

Avondale by the Sea is a great hotel for a visit to Cape May. The location is perfect, walking distance to town and across the street from the beach. All rooms have balconies with chairs and a view of the ocean. Rooms are large and include amenities.

We stay here every year for a family birthday trip. The location is great. The rooms are what you would expect for Victorian. Very frilly type flair. But they're clean. The staff all are nice and helpful. Breakfast is minimal but that's why Uncle Bills Pancake House is there. Lol. The only thing I would want to make this place... More

Across from beach, close to town, park and leave your car. Owner is present and pays attention to detail. This is a quiet, no smoking on property motel with a lovely pool. Bathrooms are clean but not updated. Guests have two rocking chairs to enjoy views of the beach and promenade. We love the "car show" that rolls by on... More

Just stayed for four days. A large clean room across the street from the beach, continental breakfast and friendly staff. Perfect beach spot. The rocking chairs for each room look out on an ocean view. Not a fancy place, just a good solid choice.

Stayed in a 2-room suite with my husband and almost 3-year old son and the location couldn't have been more perfect. It's a 5-10 minute walk to Washington Street Mall, the beach is literally across the street, they have a great 1 1/2 foot baby pool that my son could go in all by himself while we relaxed, and the...

This hotel has a fantastic location, across from the beach and in the "center" of Cape May. It was also very clean but ther than that the hotel itself was very basic. There was one air conditioner in the wall for a two room "suite" that was noisy and since it was hot was constantly running. There are plenty of... More

Knowing nothing of Cape May or the best places to stay I simply chose this hotel after reading the endless positive reviews. The overall theme of others' reviews was "clean" and they were spot on. This is hotel is 50 years old but it is as clean and well maintain as if it were new in 1965. It's plan jane... More

A first time stay and a wonderful one. Foremost, our room was spotless and I loved that it had tile floors. Super convenient location. You can walk to Washington Square and many other spots are a block either side of the hotel. Bike rentals next door. The convention center is across the street. You can walk across the street to...
