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.

Very nice staff, especially in the restaurant. We stayed in an Oceanside suite that has great views with plenty of windows, which thank god, because we needed to open them to air out the musty odor in the room. Other than that it's your typical 3star beach resort. Food was great and the location is enough for us to go... More

We booked rooms late September with 3 other couples at modest rates.. The rooms are very basic as other reviewers have noted. However you don't go to Cape May to stay in your room. The location is great---across from the beach. The wrap around porch is spacious and provided us with a pleasant evening relaxation after a busy day (don't... More

My husband and I planned a little weekend get away to beautiful Cape May. After meeting a few rude staff members we went to our room. Could it get any worse? Of course. Our room was disgusting and dirty. If you are planning a major event here think again unless your are into classless, dirty and cheap!

For the money the Inn of Cape May charges, there is no excuse for old, musty, moldy rooms. Everything about our weekend at the Inn was awful. The bed was uncomfortable, the room smelled musty and the shower was filled with mold! When we complained to the front desk, the woman couldn't be bothered. Save your money and go somewhere... More
