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

Spent a beautiful fall weekend at this inn. Was a bit worried after reading some reviews, but it was wonderful! All of the ladies at the front desk were warm, welcoming and friendly! Our room was on the 4th floor and my husband walks with a cane, the staff was super accommodating with getting someone to take us up in... More

This was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in my life. We were staying there for a wedding where there was room block. We called to book rooms about 6 months in advance and the staff was unbelievably rude. The staff consists of a bunch of older women who could care less if you actually wanted... More

The Inn of Cape May has everything you need for a great stay. Nice size rooms, bar and restaurant on site. You pick from the menu for the breakfast that is included in your price. Easy, short walk to EVERYTHING ! Big parking lot also. Even though it rained this past weekend, we didn't mind because this Inn has so... More

We have been staying at the Inn of Cape May for several Decembers, so we knew Autumn would be good too. What a lovely time we had. Got to enjoy happy hour, breakfast at Aleathea's and sitting on the porch listening to the rain. I love that the Inn is not too modernized - so much of the history of... More

The hotel is well situated in the beach block and historic district, making it possible to park a car (in a lot conveniently located across the street) and forget about it for the duration of your stay. The rooms and common spaces are kept meticulously clean, although empty drinking glasses left on the porch by bar patrons should have been... More

The Inn of Cape May is very clean, comfortable and charming. It's in the best location in Cape May. You can walk to everything. What I didn't enjoy was lack of WIFI service. When I informed the lady at the front desk that the WIFI didn't work, she said to me, "You're on vacation, you shouldn't be on your laptop."... More

Fun as alwyas. Great location. Directly across the street from the ocean. The staircase makes the experience more interesting. It is a Victorian era Inn. Interent is not too readily available. I don't go to the beach to use the internet.
