Start at the beginning, at check in,we were told that we didn't really reserve an accessible room, but that my wife would be able to get out of her wheelchair and hop to the toilet or tub! She only has one leg and has been in this condition for over twenty years,(we don't "forget" to ask for ADA accessible rooms)! I was told that they only have one (1) ADA room and it was booked, but they took our reservation anyway. One girl did offer to change our room to a "pet friendly" room. I don't know, maybe those rooms have shower seats, roll-in showers,safety grab bars, 17 inch high toilets and extra wide doors for the really big dogs! The room was just clean, not sparkling as the bathroom floor still had a little dirt and pubic hair on it. I guess its a good thing my wife's wheel-chair couldn't get in the door because she would have complained about that. However, she couldn't safely pee, poop or shower so I guess its a good thing we only stayed one night. Lobby, hallways, elevators and pool area are not wheel-chair convenient at all, in fact it seems they have put runner carpets down to dress things up a bit but this only makes it very difficult to roll straight in the chair. (if your in a chair , you know what I mean.)
Its not all bad though, the maintenance man tried his best to be helpful, though he didn't have much to work with. He brought us a shower seat to try to make it possible for her to shower, however, it was for a right handed shower, and we had a left handed tub with no hand rails. So its probably a good thing she couldn't get in the bathroom anyway.
As you can tell at this point, I was not at all pleased with this stay. We love Cape May and will never stop coming back, but it will not be to the Marquis De Lafayette Hotel.
If you or any of your loved ones is/are handicapped then I wouldn't waste my time or money on this place. The location is not worth the aggravation.
