My husband and I enjoyed a great weekend at the Mt. Vernon Motel. This great little motel was extremely clean, the staff was nice and the value of the room was excellent. The rooms are not fancy, but a great value for the price paid and the bathrooms are remodeled. The location of the motel is perfect, located directly across... More

I have been all over the east coast of the US and many port citys in Europe. I love staying in Cape May and staying at Mt. Vernon Motel is part of the great experience. The family that owns and runs it can be seen storing all the lounge and pool cusions in the evening and they are back in... More

My husband and I were in need of a much needed weekend getaway. The Mt. Vernon was just what we needed. Clean comfortable room with a birds eye view of the Atlantic. What beautiful land scape! Close to the Washington square and walking distance of some awesome dining experiences. Pool well taken care of. We were totally satisfied.

My husband and I wanted to extend our weeks vacation 1 more night. I spoke to the young lady @ the front desk and she did have one room left. We were able to park in the lot @ 10 am prior to our 2 pm check in time. We were able to use the pool and to our surprise... More

We visit Cape May almost every year and we usually stay at the Mount Vernon. It is always very clean and nicely landscaped with beautiful flowers. The owners are very efficient and nice, always quick to respond to any issue. Pool is spotless and has more room for lounge chairs than most of the other hotels and motels in Cape... More

We've been staying there for over 20 years and never had a reason not to return! Our latest visit, the last week in August, was no exception. We love the location--beautiful beach, quiet part of town, and an easy walk to the mall. The owners meticulously maintain the building, rooms, and grounds. We find the beds comfortable, the AC units... More

I was a little unsettling that we had to pay for our three nights in cash upon check in. In my experience you pay when you check out. The website said cheery rooms. Unfortunately they were drab and outdated. There was a slight musty smell as well, however the bathroom seemed to be updated enough and the housekeeping crew did... More

We have been staying at the Mt Vernon Motel for over 20 years. The rooms are always clean and of a decent size. There is a well-maintained pool which is a huge draw after a day on the beach right across the street! They have helped us find babysitters when needed and have accommodated our sometimes late arrivals. We have... More
