Literally steps from the beach. They provide lounge chairs, towels and umbrellas. Very convenient. We spent all day at the beach and it was great. Even ordered lunch right to the beach - too nice. However, our night time was anything but that. We were beside guests that were unbelievably loud, from 10:30pm to 2:30am. In addition to just being... More

This was my 1st trip to Cape May. I'll defiantly return - we traveled with another couple who has stayed at the Beach Shack before. I found the staff very friendly - they upgraded us to "bungalow" room with 2 bedrooms a large living area and full kitchen, perfect for the one rainy day of our trip. Clean simple rooms... More

We stayed here during labor day weekend. It was a last minute decision and we were lucky there was still one room open. The original appeal was that it was a pet friendly hotel and it was connected to the Rusty Nail (one of our favorite bars in Cape May). The place did not disappoint. It was very pet friendly... More

This rating applies to myself as well. Tried to book on travelocity. It was late at night and I had been to a few motels to find a room. Found one here. I apparently forgot to change the dates for check in and proceeded with the booking for one room 2 adults 2 kids. Got conformation and realized it was... More

Family of 4 stayed in a standard room. This is a great location across the street from the beach and close to many stores and restaurants. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Ample parking with lot attendant. It has great views and a nice pool with plenty of seating available. The room itself was a bit dated... More

I traveled here with my family on May of 2014 and we had one of our best vacations ever! We stayed in a "family efficiency" which was great for our family of four. We were able to eat breakfast in the room and the adults got the bedroom and the kids shared the fold-out couch. The room was very clean... More

I normally don't like to review, but i also don't like to feel annoyed while on vacation. I had been anxious to stay here as we frequent the restaurant a lot when visiting. Upon arriving we were placed in a room with no sunlight, at the top of the stairs, in front of the ice machine..oh hell no! Not for... More
