I was very nervous after reading the reviews on tripadvisor, however, I did want to try The Chalfonte for myself. I'm so glad I did.
My husband and I spent a wonderful night at this graceful, old hotel which reminded us both of childhood vacations. Our corner room was clean, pretty and simple. The bathroom was clean, had plenty of towels and a big clawfoot tub. Our bed was comfortable and the ocean breezes kept the room cool.
The dinner and breakfast were excellent and the young lady who looked after us was efficient and pleasant.
We loved the fact that we could leave our car and walk to the beach and around the town. The porch with the rockers is wide and comfortable; we enjoyed sitting after dinner and watching the horse-drawn carriages go by.
A request to families with small children -- please make sure your kids do not run around the dining-room talking loudly to strangers and helping themselves from the buffet with their hands. The hotel feels very comfortable and friendly but it is still not your home!
We will stay at The Chalfonte whenever we are in Cape May, and we go there at least twice every year.
