I have to say it was an amazing time. Loved the pools and the ocean views. Joey at the front desk was so professional and accommodating and couldn't do enough for us. He truly is an asset to the Grand Hotel. Thanks for everything. Sincerely, James and Suzanne Nestor.

The experience we had at the Grand Hotel was a good experience. The best experience was the BED. It was huge and very comfortable. My family all stayed at this hotel for our reunion, and they ALL said the same thing about their beds too. The cleanliness was also notable. My girlfriends loved the colors and the decor. she also...

Way over priced for what you get. Out dated room, damp carpet and rusty fixtures in the bathroom. Nice outdoor pool and has an indoor pool and restaurant. Staff was nice. You can rent bikes on the premises. Good location near the beach. Cost was double of what it should be.

I would like to recommend this hotel to everyone, who enjoy peaceful, bucolic stay at the seaside. Rooms are very comfortable and due to Martyna’s work always clean. She seemed to be very solid worker. Moreover, there were a lot interesting facilities, indoor and outside pool included. I am convinced that I will be back there soon.

Hi, I generally do not write reviews but I have to compliment this hotel. The breakfast buffet was amazing and filling. Great dinner at Hemingways Restaurant. The indoor pool was a nice size and plenty of space to swim. I liked the fact that most of the pool did not go over five feet. The outdoor pool was great and... More

My sincere thanks to Sherrie Hannagan (Group Sales Manager) and the staff at The Grand Hotel for yet another smooth and enjoyable stay. My group, the New Jersey Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America, spent the weekend of May 16-17, 2014 at the property. This was our 4th year at The Grand Hotel and, although we only had...

We have been staying at this hotel for over decade. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. The indoor and outdoor pools are excellent. The house staff is very nice. On the other hand, the restaurant is just pitiful. I should have known something was up when there was no one in the dining room. This was very uncharacteristic in... More

I always believe that there is no better seaside then Malta, but I was totally wrong. The beach in Cape May is the best in the world. I can easily feel that by living really near the ocean, in Grand Hotel. The hotel was awesome and the room was really always clean. I also can feel like in Europe be... More

I spend a weekend here and I don't regret this choice even for a second. My room was very cosy and tidy. The swimming pool is a great facility but the beach is also awesome :) I just want to appreciate kindness and profesionalism of housekeeper Martyna's work. I'll be back some day!

I spent only 3 days there, but it was totally worth any money! I love hotels that are located so close to the ocean. It is almost at the beach! I cannot complain, I cannot regret, I cannot wait till I come back there! The service at the pool were excellent: tasty drinks, free towels and that funny, simpatico guy... More
