“Would stay here again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

my husband and i were looking for a place to stay in cape may for one night. we didn't want to pay a fortune. it was difficult to find a hotel that didn't require a 2 night stay, didn't cost a fortune and had availability for the day we wanted to go. a friend recommended the cape harbor motor inn. the rooms were smallish but clean and safe and the rates were reasonable. it is not within walking distance of the beach, and it's about 1 mile from the center of town, but like i said...clean, safe and reasonable. the staff was friendly and helpful and we had a nice time, i would stay here again and i've already recommended it to a few friends.

Owners are wonderful! Place is a bit dated but who cares? It was immaculate and really, how long do you stay in your hotel room while on vacation? Would go back again when in Cape May

Although the room furnishings have seen better days, management maintains a clean, comfy establishment. We were welcomed and treated very pleasantly. The location is convenient: short walk/ride to beach (free parking!), trolley runs in front for a ride to the promenade (don't have to worry about parking in town!), pool and tables very nice, gas grills and picnic tables great for cooking in. Also easy walk to pizza, burritos, WaWa and more. Recommend for families as price is reasonable for CM in the height of summer. Bring your own sundries and basic food items - and don't forget your bikes! We will likely return.

We completely enjoyed our weekend here. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the price was great compared to most others in this area. The accomodations are not modern and elegant but very clean and comfortable, which is most important to me. A good old-fashioned value. We will go back.

A trip back in time to the seventies. Everything in the room outdated but generally in good condition. No breakfast, no mat in the bathroom, no shampoo or lotion, but a refrigerator and a coffee machine, albeit without coffee or condiments. Friendly and helpful manager, price lower than most in this expensive town. My room was on an external corridor, but with a window on the other side also, which allows a draft, better than the noisy air conditioner.

We were invited to a dear friend's wedding at the Corinthian Yacht Club. We chose Cape Harbor since they had the closest accommodations to the event. After a long flight from the west coast and driving from Philadelphia, we were met by Mary with a lovely smile! We immediately felt welcome and check-in took no time at all. Our room on the second floor was perfect for our weekend in Cape May. We enjoyed having a cross breeze in our room and the greenery outside our back window. The sound of the church bells while we had our morning coffee made a wonderful start to our day. The room was clean and cheerful and we are happy we found Cape Harbor Motor Inn.

The air condioner was loud and old. TV was old and outdated. The dresser was missing two drawers. No coffee pot in the room, was told to go to Wawa for coffee but after complaining was given a pot with a cup of coffee grinds and no cream, sugar or spoon . Flies in room entire time. Beds uncomfortable and hard, pillows flat and small. No shampoo, lotions or tissues. Charges the same price as a motel on the beach.
