My friend and I just returned from a stay at the Heritage inn in Cape May NJ. The hotel is small but charming. Very clean, friendly staff, The rooms were fairly spacious with a small kitchenette and a good sized bathroom. There was a nice pool. The owners were on site and were very friendly, helpful and always available.

The amenities were great and to top it off, the location was perfect! It is right along the beach row within very quick walking distance of the shopping district, more restaurants than you could visit in your lifetime and, of course, the beach. Everything was clean and well maintained and everyone was friendly. The room seemed bigger than it looked... More

Wonderful family owned property within walking distance to many restaurants, shopping and the beach. This was our first experience staying at this hotel, we will return. We asked for dining suggestions, each suggestion was excellent. Looking forward to our next trip to Cape May and the The Heritage Inn. Sue Harrisburg, PA

[Voice of Game Show Host] Located in the heart of the "action" of Beach Avenue in Cape May, this quaint three story Victorian masterpiece offers scenic views of the soft sandy beaches of picturesque Cape May. The friendly and accommodating owners and staff (love ya Gwen and Dotsea!) will make your stay a memorable one. When visiting the Jersey Shore,... More

Stayed here the week of 9/8. Nice family owned motel with a perfect location. No frills so bring your own shampoo/conditioner. We had a microwave, our friends room did not. Beds/ pillows were comfy, we asked for a screen for our window and had the ocean breeze at night. Nice rooftop deck. Dottie is the sweetest housekeeping lady ever. Gwen... More

Although the room was a nice size and the hotel is in a good location, the amenities were lacking: no clock radio, no phone to call the desk if needed, and no shampoo samples. I had to request a window screen so I could open the window without inviting insects. It seems the owners do the minimum, and I feel... More

Really??? Shampoo?? And just a note: the facilities are staffed 24 hours a day and office hours are 9:30a.m. to midnight during the season. Available to you for any requests had you asked. And the pool is ALWAYS locked during a lightning/rain storm as a safety precaution, no exceptions. More

We have stayed in many other places at Cape May but this is the first time we have decided to return to the same hotel next year; The Heritage Inn on Beach Avenue. Gwen, the owner, treated us as if we were guests in her own home. Clean, affordable, great view, big bathroom, comfy king bed, and only a few... More

This was our second time staying at the Heritage Inn. The rooms are just the right size and the owners, Gwen Bodnar and her family (including "grandma") are wonderful people. If you're looking for the best location in all of Cape May, you'll find it at the Heritage! Morrow's Nut House (for Asher's candies), McGlades for breakfast and the beach... More

The location is great, everything else was average. Rooms were smaller than expected. Door didn't seal well drafty and loud from outside noise. After staying on the third floor for 4 days it would have been nice to have an elevator. For what we paid they need to make some upgrades.
