My little girl and I stayed here for 3 nights in early July. It was very family friendly! The owner, Gwen, her mom, and their staff could not have been nicer or more friendly! It was not fancy, but had every thing that we needed! The room was very comfortable and well appointed! I loved the actual key - as... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in June and it was great. Located right across from the beach and within walking distance to everything. The price was decent for June and the room was big and clean. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

We spent 1 week in Heritage Inn, our experience was very good and we were very happy that we picked this hotel. The room was very clean and nice. We had an amazing view of the ocean. There was no problem with our friends to stay a night with us. Everyone was very nice to us. The pool was cleaned... More

In respose to your review I would like to state the following: I am stunned that you wrote this review that contains complete and utter falsehoods. Upon arrival you had a melt down about the room location which is indeed in the breezeway which your wife booked herself. When given the choices of an oceanview or breezeway at a lesser... More

I wasn't sure what to expect after seeing photos on the website but it turned out to be a clean room despite the decor being outdated and a damp smell to the room (bring some room spray). The location is super convenient to the beach and walking distance to all the good restaurants. You won't get many amenities and the... More

A friend and I stayed at The Heritage Inn recently, and we loved it. The location is amazing, literally across the street from the beach, close to shopping and restaurants as well. We loved we could sit on the balcony and watch the ocean! The room was great as well, very spacious (we had the extra large motel room), very... More

This was my first time to Cape May and the Heritage Inn was great. They are on the main street and right on the ocean. They have a fantastic roof top deck with 360 views. If you need a place to stay in Cape May, I would consider this place first!! Good value for the money and wonderful staff and... More

The location is perfect! You can walk everywhere and still be close to your room! The view from the motel is perfect, the ocean, the beach the boardwalk! The owners are fabulous! We're definitely coming back!

Pros: You can't beat the location of this Motel-turned-Inn along Beach Avenue in Cape May. Two mothers and two daughters spent the week in Room 33 - it was a bit cramped but we managed and could forgive most any shortcoming by walking up to the deck or looking out to the ocean from the balcony rail. It's plain, no-frills;... More

My mother and I just returned from a two night stay at the Heritage Inn and we were very pleased with both the accommodations and the owners/staff. Our room on the third floor was clean and well kept with a view of the ocean. The Inn is located across the street from the beach and was an easy walk to... More
