I love Cape May more than any other place in the country. The Grand is very affordable and our room had an awesome view of the beautiful ocean. Nathan at the front desk was very nice and helpful and our cleaning lady was very nice as well.

Can't really judge value when it comes to summer at the jersey shore because everything is pricy. The rooms were larger than I expected being a two room suite with sleeping space for 8 and a small kitchen. Room was ready upon check in and clean. There was no available parking although they provided a permit. I parked in the... More

We had our wedding in the Penthouse Ballroom at the Grand Hotel in June. We can not say enough wonderful things about Katlyn and her staff of wedding coordinators. They were all very fast with responding to my emails and on the day of the wedding I did not have to worry one bit about things being perfect (they were).... More

We stayed at the Grand 2 weeks ago as a family of 4. After reading the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect, however our room was very clean and in good shape. We didn't hear much noise and found parking ok. The indoor and outdoor pool were both very clean and enjoyable. The location was right across the from... More

Indoor & outdoor pools are clean.Workout room needs updating. Wifi is very ify. New mattresses needed! The restaurant Hemingway's is nice but overpriced. Staff was friendly. Just have to stay on top of them... More

We spent $345 for a one night stay in an old, dirty, smelly room. Do not waste your money! Stay away from The Grand because this place is a dump! There is nothing "Grand" about it. Extremely disappointed...

I know immediately upon arrival if I'm going to like the place or not... With that being said I was sooooo skeptical of booking this place because of some horrible reviews... We arrived to cape may early and the hotel said something about a 24 hour reception not quite exactly sure what that was about I took my chances and... More

We stayed in one of the efficiency rooms for one night. At $340, it wasn't exactly cheap, but cheaper than other hotels in Cape May. We got what we paid for. There was hair all over the place (sheets, pillowcases, shower curtain). The pillowcases were stained. The formica was peeling off the bathroom vanity. The top came off the faucet... More
