The "GRAND" Hotel is aptly named for its size... 175 Rooms on the ocean. But don't confuse it for BEING a grand hotel. It is not. It is a place to stay with a lot of outdated rooms desperately in need of upgrading. Most people today have one, two or three electronic devices that need to be plugged in at... More

Took a mini vacation to Cape May, New Jersey. The area was quite beautiful but the hotel that we stayed in left a lot to be desired. Perhaps their tourist season Hadn't begun yet. The rooms were average in cleanliness. The towels in the bathroom were very thin and rough when used for a shower. Needed two per guest to... More

My husband & I stayed here for a long weekend on April 24 to 28th 2015. Our friend's daughter got married on the beach, so we made a little vacation out of it. The hotel is super clean and our room was great!

We always stay here in duplex efficiency so I don't know what the other rooms are like. View of the ocean while sipping morning coffee on the outdoor balcony. How great is that? Love it. The indoor pool, especially when traveling with children, is a lifesaver on those chilly or rainy days. Restaurant downstairs, with so many others close by,... More

This is our second visit to this hotel. Cape May is a beautiful little town. I think there is a new manager or something because the hotel definitely looks awesome. Our room was clean and pretty. The kitchenette is perfect for coffee or breakfast or making a quick lunch. The special deals are amazing. We had a delicious dinner in... More

Booked a King room via booking.com for a romantic birthday getaway, just pre-season, requesting a highA floor. Was relegated to a dingy double-double on first floor. Room looked like it hadn't been renovated since the 1970s, except for the odd presence of a very up-to-date kitchenette, with granite surfaces and nice cabinets and appliances. It only served to make the... More

The staff at the Grand Hotel are very nice and helpful. It is pretty clean and smoke free. The bed needs updating and the television stations were being worked on, so some stations we could not get. There is WIFI but had to sign in frequently as the connection is not good. We were there in off season and prices... More

My husband and I stayed overnight and were very pleased with the accomodations. Our ocean view room was clean, neat, had everything we needed. Buffet breakfast was extra but was was fantasic (pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs, etc.)!
