The Inn of Cape May is a beautiful Victorian Inn. The staff is extremely helpful. The food in the restaurant is wonderful and the veranda bar fabulous The difficulty, that will keep us from returning, is that the Inn permits smoking on the porches . Since this is an old building the smoke finds it way into the lobby and... More

So after booking this Inn back in December, I saw all the bad reviews and I was starting to get nervous. Don't listen to them! The Inn from the outside is absolutely stunning. The location can not be beat. The pool is clean and warm...my son loved it. The location is a 5 minute walk from town and across the... More

Everything at this Inn was as expected. The staff was exceptional. Don't fear any negative reviews. I kept waiting to encounter someone who was less than accommodating and it absolutely never happened. The bartender is top notch. The food preparers are fantastic. The building is old but it is well maintained and kept clean. The pool area was kept very... More

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
