Picked a day time to go to the shore with a coastal storm approaching. We arrived before the rain started and rushed to try to walk on the beach. Way too windy with sand blowing in every direction. Back at the hotel we looked for the ocean view which was much less than advertised but visible in a side view.... More

Great family vacation destination, beautiful beachs, indoor and outdoor pool, tiki bar with live music most days. Activities for kids, Eco ventures is great for getting parents time to relate. Hemingway resturant and bar, good food and service. Free shuttle to downtown area, very walkable, but if you don't want to walk jump on the shuttle. Great experience!

This was our 9th visit to Cape May. Honestly most places we stayed where pretty good and the Grand is no exception. It's not as romantic as some other places but it was clean, the staff was friendly and the bed was comfortable. It was very reasonably priced when staying early in the week. We think we have found a... More

IF you stay here, you'd better take the suite. These rooms have been refurbished and are the only ones i would stay in. The place is old, i get that…BUT that is no excuse for unkept conditions. The carpets in the halls were dirty, and needed vacuuming. The doors to the rooms looked like someone had opened all of them... More

I think this hotel has lots of character. I love the fact that there are large common areas for guests to view the ocean on a elevated level. Used he indoor hot tub, and it was nice. Location is good. I assume this hotel offers several options of rooms. What we had was a king size bed hotel room, with... More

Great place to stay. We stayed in the suite, which had 2 double beds on the 3rd floor with sliders leading to a nice deck looking at the ocean. The downstairs had a sofa-bed, kitchen table, refrig, microwave, stove top. Kitchen was completely equipped for long stays. My husband and I decided to visit for a long weekend and had... More

The room to say the least wasn't up to par. The sheets weren't cleaned, we found stains on the sheets, and a lot of hair on the under sheets, all varying in length some were really long and some looked like pubic hair. Maid was very nice and she changed our sheets for us after us calling the front desk.... More

Why in the world would anyone hire a person that can barely understand English and you have to spell everything to her. Really?? Plus, my daughter checks in to her room and the first thing she does is check the sheets to make sure they were changed. Guess what! They were not!! There were hairs between the sheets and they...

Funny, just having returned from our 5 day stay at The Grand and I am reading some of the more recent reviews....People need to lighten up! For the money, this is a great value. We had a King Grand Room that had a nice balcony with ocean views. Finding a parking spot was easy, as it was after Labor Day... More
