I have not written a review before, but felt obligated based on how horrendous our experience was. My husband and I were traveling with our 9 year old daughter. Not only was our room filthy (do not feel it would be appropriate to explain the details of this on-line), but how it was handled by Management was the worst customer... More

Please be advised that the Ocean Club Hotel will not entertain guest threats of poor reviews in exchange for discounts or free stays. You advised our manager that there was blood on your sheets. However, your daughter came to the front desk on multiple occasions to ask for band aids. Your child advised that she had cut her foot. Further,... More

It's basically a converted motel. Nice ocean view room that is modern-ish & updated but the place still has a motel feel. The room was in desperate need of a deep clean! There was hair on the desk & on the bureau which completely grossed me out. the carpets desperately needed to be vacuumed. On a positive note The hotel... More

I have stayed in many hotels in many locations. I can truly say nothing about Ocean Club Hotel made you feel like you were staying somewhere public. The room was spotless clean, the bed was as comfortable as my own, the location is perfect and the staff was amazing. From the beach to the pool to the restaurant and bar... More

We are regulars at the Ocean Club since they first opened and I have to say it is the best hotel around. To CBIreland regarding your comment on the Pool Boy being "drunk"? First of all his name is Johnny and I highly doubt he was drunk. He is extremely professional as all the employees that we have come across... More

Usually this is a 3 night minimum in the summer but we were able to get this for 2 nights by booking online for some reason. The location is great as it is directly across from the beach. The pool area is a pretty good size but on a nice day i can see it filling up quick so make... More

One of the best hotels in Cape May. Updated rooms, cozy beds, great view, friendly and helpful staff. No complaints and I would definitely go back. Sea salt restaurant was great, staff was very patient with our big group - service was a little slow but everything else was great.

Im not one to write a bad review. But when a hotel says the 4 or 5 star and acts in a way where the customer is last. Its my duty to report it. It starts out with the rooms which are still nice, but to get up there with one elevator, is something that is such a nuisance, that... More

We are sorry that we fell below your expectations. We also apologize if the complimentary pool towel turnover was slower than usual on one of the dates during your stay. Please note, lounge chairs are first come-first serve and despite the demand for pool and beach lounge chairs on the dates you stayed with us, there was an ample amount... More

The hotel was exactly what we were looking for in a cape may vacation. Great location, Service was incredible. Especially the front desk girl Sara. Helped us become familiar with the town, and make dinner reservations for some of the better locations. She sent us to La Veranda which I would've never found on my own. And was absolutely delicious.... More

Ocean Club is a decent hotel if you're looking for beachfront. I wouldn't quite give it a four star because the bathroom was uncomfortably small. Other problems: There was nowhere to hang wet bathing suits or towels (one small rack in bathroom), there was only one elevator with no AC, pool is kind of small and we had to pay... More

Thanks so much for your feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. Please know that the cost for the beach access is not something the hotel charges for. Beach agents are city employees and all proceeds go to the city to pay for maintaining Cape May's beaches. Hope you join us again in the future. Best,... More

We spent 4 Days and 3 Nights here midweek. The facilities were wonderful and a great location just across the street from their private beach. The Sea Salt restaurant had an excellent menu, both for breakfast and dinner. The staff, from Manager Neil to front desk personnel Sarah, Christine and Tiffany(she's a big Auburn fan-Go Tigers), were friendly, knowledgeable and... More
