On a return visit to Cape May, I stayed in Poor Richard's Inn and I would say that it is definitely an excellent value for the area. The Inn is centrally located and the Inn hosts are very welcoming and hospitable.
I liked the morning breakfast set up. It is self serve and comes with fresh fruits and excellent coffee! You can either eat in the table area or you can use a tray to bring your food back to your room or upstairs to the very cute shared terrace which overlooks Jackson street.
I stayed in a very spacious room with three side exposures....... wonderful!
I guess the only thing keeping me from giving five stars is the fact that it has the quirks of an older home. You can hear the footsteps of those above you .......but this wasn't anything awful.
The water pressure is good, so showering is not a concern.
Overall, a very good experience and highly recommended!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At Poor Richard's we try to strike a balance between today's informality and yesterday's charm, without being pretentious or overbearing. We're friendly and helpful, but respect your privacy; and while the rooms are furnished with period pieces, our primary goal is to have guests feel comfortable and "at home" — we're not aiming at strict Victorian authenticity...and our prices aren't too outrageous. We are located less than a minute's walk to Cape May's main beach. ... more less
