Great room and service. Room is cleaned daily has a nice little kitchen with microwave and fridge. All staff are very nice and go out of their way to help in anyway they can. Early check in and late checkout if needed. The pool is nice and there is a roof top deck with beautiful views. Close walk to everything... More

My husband and I stayed here during a short stay in Cape May. We were happy with our decision. It's not a fancy place with lots of frills, but just perfect and it fit our needs. It was clean, safe and the location was excellent. Since we planned to spend most of our time enjoying the beach (which was right... More

Last minute beach trip, we usually do the outer banks but it's a 6 hour drive, this is only 3 hours - we were only staying 3 days- overpriced for a view of the steps, wifi doesn't work, beds are awful, damp feeling room, and the kicker was the office to check out by 10am was supposed to open at...

We are sorry your time at the Heritage Inn wasn't as terrific as our other guests visits. We do reserve on a 1st come 1st serve basis and as we are booked months in advance a last minute reservation does not always have an ocean view. As for the wifi, it does require a passcode which we could have given... More

My fiancé and I stayed here for the first time for a last minute trip to our favorite vacation spot Cape May. We had never stayed at the heritage before, but we saw there was a room available and had great ratings on trip advisor so went ahead and booked. It exceeded our expectations! The room was spacious and very... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I stayed at The Heritage Inn. I was having difficulty finding a room anywhere and ended up making a reservation at The Heritage Inn as they were located right across the street from the beach. I was a little unsure of how satisfactory this place would be as I had previously stayed at larger hotels.... More

This Inn is okay, no frills, nothing fancy. I like the location because it's in the middle of the Ocean Avenue, few steps to the beach, close to restaurants. The room is clean but the pool is too small and not clean enough.

3rd year in a row here. Great location, clean accommodations and wonderful staff. We decided to elope in Cape May, but needed a witness to apply for the marriage license. Gwen went above and beyond, by being our witness. We can not express how much we appreciated her. The hotel is at a wonderful location where you can walk across... More

We booked two nights here for a very last minute getaway. When making the reservation the owner went out of her way to try to get us a room on the second floor so I wouldn't have to climb so many stairs due a bad knee. Although the rooms were a bit older, they were spotless. We did get a... More

The location is PERFECT. You can park and not move the car your full stay. The staff(Gwen and her family) are very nice and helpful and easily accessible. The rooms are clean. We have been going to this hotel for 32 years and would not go elsewhere.

In response I have to say that you should clarify to the readers that you wanted an ocean view but did not book an ocean view thru your booking engine. You asked to be relocated and unfortunately we were unable to do so as we are booked solid for most of our season. Also the ocean view rooms are more... More
