...you will find The Heritage Inn. A hybrid blue victorian with white trim, The Heritage Inn is a place for younger to middle age patrons (as there is only stair access besides ground) to let their hair down and enjoy cape may. Each room has all the necessary comforts-refrigerator included-to enjoy your stay. Gwen will greet you at the front... More

Gwen was very helpful juggling rooms to accommodate us. Very friendly and you can't beat the location! Our car is smaller so they let us have a parking spot out front the whole time. We had a really nice visit!

My husband and I stayed on the top floor of the inn and we enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. Mark, the grandson helped us check in and Barbara who bought the place 45+ years ago is a lovely woman. They have a dog Leila rescued by the ASPCA and she makes my niece laugh. When we... More

The Heritage Inn is in a great location, you can walk everywhere. There are good restaurants nearby. It is a very clean hotel and the staff is friendly. Every thing we needed in a room was there, including extra towels. I have stayed at several places in Cape May and plan to stay at the Heritage Inn whenever I return... More

Before we came we read a lot of the reviews and can see the point of some of them but the following is my experience for what it was. My wife and I stayed at the hotel for a long weekend and found the rooms to be clean with a relatively new bathroom. The A/C and refrigerator worked effectively. They... More

We stayed at the Heritage for a few days during the last week of June 2014. It was our 6th trip to Cape May and the first time we decided to do a return stay at a hotel. Before this trip, we'd stayed at a different place every time, and our list so far includes: The Hotel Alcott, Avondale, The... More

This was the 2nd time me and my husband stayed at this hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The maid service was great and the staff was extremely friendly. No matter what room you were in you had an awesome view. The pool was so wonderful and refreshing to... More

Once again, the Heritage Inn satisified all our needs on our week stay. We've been coming here for about 20 years and it is always there for us. It's never let us down. Everything we need. After all, you are not at the beach to camp out in the room, but if you need to, everything is there for you.... More

This is a perfect location for beach access. Go out your front door, cross the street, turn left, walk a few feet, turn right, and Voila! the beach. There are a variety of good food places within walking distance - although having the free parking lot offers mobility without the worry of "where will I go when I get back."... More
