“Pleasant first experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

My husband, mother in law and I just stayed at the Capri for the long weekend. It was our first time there, having previously stayed at the Grand, and Stockton Inn. (Both of which we liked except the hard beds at the Stockton!) The Capri was very clean and had everything we needed for a short stay. The beds (full, not queen - but two of them) were comfortable and the linens were spotless. The front desk was accommodating when we called and said we would be arriving late due to traffic. We really didn't have any other interactions with them during our stay besides check in and check out and they were very pleasant. We knew that the office was closed after ten, so when the people above us came back at 1:30 and continued to party loudly we were't sure what our course of action was, so we just turned on the AC in an attempt to drown them out. Next time I would ask for the third floor. The only other minor annoyance was the light shining from the neighboring hotel into the kitchen window which was frosted but had no shade or blinds. We covered it with a towel ourselves instead of asking at the front desk. I have no reason to believe that they wouldn't have helped, but we figured it was easy enough to deal with. My mother in law's room faced the ocean and she didn't have that problem.
We don't have any small children, but I did notice the kids there enjoying the shuffleboard and ping pong.
Even with no vacancy, there were plenty of parking spots.
Overall, it was a good experience and we will likely return next year to stay.

Room Tip: I'd pick the rooms facing Beach Drive to avoid the Ocean Beach Club's spotlights.

Our trip was at the end of September, last days of summer and first day of Autumn. We had a wonderful time. The Capri was perfect. Clean room, very nice pool, and as a bonus, cold beer right across the street. Everything was within walking distance, parked the car in private lot and just left it there. The hotel was so accomidating! Offered us towels to use poolside shower after checkout. That extended our stay! We went to the beach after check-out, enjoyed the sun. Then went back and showered and left for home. They were wonderful. We will definately stay there again. Only issue we had was no counter space in bathroom.

We have been staying at the Capri for years when we participate in the Annual September Beach Front Run. We chose it initially for the location and price but we return annually because of the great service and continued improvements in the property.

Room Tip: Higher floors have great ocean views.

We stayed in a deluxe suite for 3 nights. Other reviewers were right about the cleanliness of this lodge. Very clean and neat (always is important). The location was good too. Just a little trek across the street to the beach. Washington Mall could be walked to but since we have young children we drove over. Onsite parking was convenient and also appreciated. We are a family of four and the suite had more than ample space for us. Also had a large private balcony outside. So nice to have a kitchen so we could save a few dollars by eating in sometimes. I agree with some other reviewers that the lodge could use a little updating. This is a minor flaw if you can even call it a flaw. This motel is clean, comfy and well cared for. What more do you need after a day of fun at the shore?

We sprung for an ocean view room, and loved waking up to see the Atlantic in its many moods. The efficiency kitchen is a great feature, and meant we could enjoy some meals out but not have to have all of them.

Room Tip: Third floor ocean view is really worth it.

What a great family vacation we had @ the Capri in Cape May, NJ! We rented a three bedroom townhouse with 2.5 baths. It was roomy, equipped with cooking and laundry facilities, and clean. The carpets, TV's, and bedspreads could use updating, but it was across the street from the beach and close to the center of town.

We would definitely go back!

The Capri was a perfect place for our weekend getaway. We were very please with this hotel's location, friendly service, parking, and the amenities that set it apart from the rest. We enjoyed our room on the ground floor since it was easy access to the parking lot with no steps or elevator needed. It was a cute place that had tables on the courtyard for eating, grills to cook out, a shuffle board, and a ping pong table. The pool was clean and very relaxing. The room we stayed in had a refrigerator, sink and small stove, which we didn't use, but was nice to have in case we needed it. If you stay here, walk out of the hotel toward the beach and make a left, walk a few buildings down to the Grand Hotel for breakfast/brunch and dinner at Hemmingway's restaurant. You can't beat the price and quality of food for the breakfast and sunset dinner deal. For the price and location and amenities, Capri has it all. We will be back!
