Staying here for the 4th. Great location! Clean rooms. Microwave. Big fridge. Plates, silverware & glassware. Each floor has a shared deck with 2 chairs to enjoy the beach view. Rusty Nail right next door. Two pools. Complimentary beach chairs umbrella and towels. Even being here on July 4th had place to park and room to swim! Would stay here... More

It is one of Cape May's beach front hotels and like all you have to walk and cross the road. The best thing about this place is to be able to walk the shops and restaurants and there is a full service Rusty Nail Bar build in the hotel front. Thus you can eat and drink from morning till night.... More

The sheets and towels were clean (most important thing in a trip!) but there were cobwebs and handprints above the mirror. Wifi connection was terrible too. Beach side service was nice. The "view" from the balcony was sufficient but blocked by the restaurants ac unit. Staff was super friendly and nice. Was upset that there were no second cars allowed... More

Just came home from the weekend before July 4. Had a great time. We love Cape May but haven't been there in 2 years. I found a great Living Social deal to the Beach Shack and have never been there. The rooms were clean and neat and I liked the little amenities; i.e., 2 sinks (one in the bathroom, one... More

After enjoying the fun vibe at the Rusty Nail, last year, I booked a long weekend for my husband, 5 year old son, and me for June 2015 at the Beach Shack. First the pros: room was spacious, beds comfortable, location on the second floor near the pool was quiet. That's it. Now the cons: room was very dated; cheerful... More

I have stayed at the Beach Shack 3 times now. Very clean, love the beach service. But this past week, the wifi was virtually unusable. I like to research restaurants, directions, etc., and this was impossible for most of the week. When I told the front desk, they blamed a storm, but we were there before the storm. I think... More

I went to the Beach Shack for a quick overnight get-away to Cape May. I had known, going in, that it was part of the Cape Resorts family (that also owns Congress Hall), and had hoped that that level of service would translate here. Overall I found the Beach Shack to be a higher-end motel, but I wasn't blown away.... More

If you want to experience what a fun vacation at the beach is all about, stay at the Beach Shack! It is in Cape May, NJ, which I call heaven on Earth. First off I will say that Cape May is good for thirty somethings on up. If your Twenty something stick to some of the other beach towns. The... More

First, I absolutely love the location of this resort. It's close to The Cove, Congress Hall, the Street Mall, and The Rusty Nail. The beach is right across the street and it's great for runners who want a nice short run by the water. Another plus, it allows pets which is wonderful. My husband and I enjoyed bringing Rudy along... More
