This is a nice hotel for a long weekend. The rooms are clean. We had 2 adjoining rooms each with 2 double beds, mini fridge, microwave, and extra sink. Not much in decor but it was fine. Pros: directly across the street from the beach, complimentary beach lounge chairs, towels, and umbrellas that they set up and take down, quiet... More

I really liked the Beach Shack. Our room wasn't fancy, but it was super clean and the bed was comfy. Love that it's right on the beach and that you can walk to other Cape Resorts properties (Congress Hall for breakfast!) as well as the quaint outdoor pedestrian shopping area. Little details place it a cut above other motels: free... More

I hate to write a bad review about this property since they are part of cape may resorts. I love the Star and congress Hall and have stayed there dozens on times over the past 3 years. However, The Beach Shack has major problems. When we arrived Tuesday for our two night visit Reception was pleaset and efficient. We were... More

My husband and I found the staff to be very nice. The location of the Beach Shack is great. Having the associated restaurant is so convenient. The beach service with the lounges, and umbrella, and towels set up as needed by the staff was worth a ton. The beds were very comfortable. We had the standard shack on the third... More

I have to say this place was really nice. They are part of the Congress Hall and Star Motel. I didn't appreciate walking up 3 flights of stairs with luggage but found one of the workers to help us. The rooms where clean but some black mold on the mirror by the microwave was a bit nasty. It restaurant is... More

We stayed here for the first time two weeks ago. The room was clean and the location was great. It's a big plus that they provide you with beach towels, lounge chairs and umbrella setup. They also offer lunch delivery on the beach from rusty nail, which is right next door to the hotel.

First of all the staff does a really good job. That being said the air conditioner is new but very noisy, it goes on and off every 15 minutes. The Wifi is terrible.Bathroom needs a complete upgrade and very low water pressure. Carpet was stained. Forget about sleeping in, the blinds do not make the room even a little dark.... More

I know on the outside this place doesn't look to be all that great. But it's a great place to stay. The beds are THE BEST, such comfortable bedding and pillows we asked where could we buy them for our own home. Clean rooms. You have pool service and beach service. Just walking across the street to the beach and... More

We stayed at the beach shack for four nights in July. There were many families here so we fit right in. Luckily our room was on the pool side, because the restaurant side may have been a little noisy at night. What we liked: comfortable beds and linens, towels replenished daily, ocean-front view, food and drink service at the pool... More

My wife and 15 year old son stayed the weekend for a family wedding. The hotel is nice as it does have more luxuries than you would expect. First the room is clean, the beds are comfortable, the air conditioning works well. The pool was decent and the staff kept refreshing the towels on the chairs. What I really like... More
