My sister and I stayed at the Inn of Cape May for a wedding. The rest of the wedding party was at a different location, so we were fortunate to find this location because we booked it right before the ceremony. The front desk staff was very friendly upon check in. They said our room was very small, so we... More

The Hotel is beautiful from the outside with an extended porch for relaxing and a full service restaurant with an outer area for eating and viewing. The beach is convienently across the street with easy access. The restaurant , itslelf,... More

We visited a few years ago and enjoyed our meal and even a special birthday cake for my daughter. This year was not at all what we remembered. The woman at the inn check in desk when we walked in was kind of obnoxious. Wasn't speaking to us directly but certainly not manner I would expect in such a place.... More

We are visiting from the UK and always try to stay at 'non chain' hotels so this was perfect for us. We arrived pretty late in the evening but the staff were so helpful,nthe lady on reception was very kind as were the restaurant staff who looked after us. A special thank you to them. The actual building could do... More

We are not the type of people that like to write negative reviews on a place that was a bad experience or visit to us. I will be writing some negative feedback on this establishment only for the cause that the owners will review this and consider the possibility of making some changes. The Inn of Cape May is a...

The front desk staff were rude and uninterested in us. The room is tired and dreary. The bed uncomfortable. The toilet leaked and when we reported it we were handed a stack of towels and told a report would be put in - it wasn't. The restaurant is nice and the waitress was lovely. The location is great and it... More

I have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. My last stay was 5/8-5/9. The porch compares to none! You can enjoy a glass of wine and look clearly at the ocean. It is located with enough privacy that you avoid the noise and crowds. Upon entering, you truly feel at home, and it looks like great grandmas... More

I reviewed the Inn back in August 2011 and defended it against the negative reviewers because I thought the place had charm. After returning from a stay there last night, I rescind my previous review!!! I have several areas of concern. 1. As has been expressed by many reviewers here, the front desk staff is far from welcoming. They give... More

I liked this historic hotel in Cape May, because it has an antique Otis elevator, and it's within walking distance to the Washington Street Mall, and the beach. The restaurant serves steaks and seafood, and it has lovely piano music. Breakfast is served in the restaurant.

Mom and I had a wonderful lunch at the Inn. Mom had a chicken salad sandwich with cranberries and walnuts. I had an ahi tuna sandwich. We were both very pleased. The service was excellent. Very good coffee, great atmosphere. I hope to eat there again very soon.
