This place is a gem. Called around for rates and this place had the best price and the ocean view is awesome! Walking distance to town a bit of a hike but worth it. Stayed on the second floor, brought our coolers up, had a blast! We had two rooms, one regular and one efficiency. The staff was friendly and... More

Mt Vernon Motel in Cape May is in a wonderful location. Close to the beach (right across the street) and set away from the hussle of the center of Beach Drive. It is some 500 feet from the end of the payment of Beach Drive. Some of the rooms are efficiencies with coffee makers, microwaves, and 2 burner stove. The... More

Cape May is beautiful but expensive. Our motel was well situated, but expensive($225 = tax) and lacked many amenities which I generally take for granted. These included: a coffee maker, a phone, a clock, shampoo and pamphlets which listed restaurants and attractions . None of these are expensive items. They were available in the efficiency units, which I was never... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Mt. Vernon. Very cozy and very clean. This is a little mom and pop's place is conveniently located across the street from the beach. It may be considered "old school" by some, but updated enough to make it comfortable. Of course you would find some issues would expect from an older building ie: some... More

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.
