The only good thing, in my opinion, was the room was able to accommodate 2 adults and 2 teens and was in decent condition. However, the sink stopper didn't work and the towels were like sandpaper on your skin. Laundry detergent machines didn't work or were out of detergent. The hallway to our room smelled pretty bad. It's obvious the... More

We needed a place to stay over Columbus weekend in the Cape May area. We have holidayed in Cape May for 40 years, since childhood, and passed by this hotel without a second look. But that has now changed! We were treated like special guests when we stayed, by the staff. They accommodated us needing to extend our stay and... More

We stayed in the newer section of hotel. Poor night's sleep, beds were uncomfortable, lighting was poor, could hear toddler's feet in upper room, balconies very small for sitting. The staff was very nice and accommodating, and dinner in the restaurant was very good. The outdoor pool was very clean and a good size for crowds. Grand Hotel in Wildwood... More

The following letter - sent to managers AND the owner - explains it all... sadly - I NEVER heard back from the general manager, John Allison... I left several voicemails and messages with the front desk for the owner, Bob Junior, to call me - AND I sent this e-mail - and no response. They have great staff - but... More

Room with NO view! very disappointed, we had a balcony that was closed off with a window that faced a wall. There was no Ocean View. I booked this vacation in May, plenty of time ahead to get me into a decent room. I paid $1400 for 5 nights for a King room. When I told the staff that I... More

Me and my boyfriend were looking for an affordable place to stay for a night and the grand had the most reasonable price in the area. The receptionists were very friendly. The hotel seemed old and the room needed updating as well. The room had a couch, queen bed, desk, mini fridge and a closed in porch with a view... More

Booked this last minute and paid more for an ocean view room, thinking I was going to get some deluxe, instead I was given the older Kings row side of this property, it was more a view overlooking the parking lot instead of direct ocean view, I asked the front desk this when they showed me the map, she said...

We booked a last minute getaway for our family and decided to try the Grand Hotel. We've been to Cape May many times and have stayed in B&Bs as well as the Beach Shack. We were disappointed in the Grand Hotel for several reasons. The lobby and adjacent stairways emanate a horrible smell - maybe mildew/mold or just lack of... More

This is a hotel right on Beach St., across from the ocean. Perfect location in Cape May; close to everything, food, shopping, etc. We were a family of 5, staying in a 2 room suite. It was wonderful; large spacious rooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, coffee maker, full size fridge. We especially appreciated the well stocked bathroom, with extra towels, Kleenexes... More
