I recently stayed in Cape May, NJ for two nights as my son was graduating from the U.S. Coast Guard Training Center there. I picked the Montreal based on the reviews, price and location - although there were a few slightly negative reviews. I have to say on arrival I was pleasantly surprised. My room (on the 4th floor) seemed to be newly renovated and was very spacious and tastefully decorated. I had a partial ocean view (obscured by the sun deck) but could still open the sliding glass door and sit either inside or outside and hear the ocean and feel the lovely ocean breeze. I saw dolphins from the sun deck one morning. The staff were friendly and I had a conversation with a couple who stay there twice a year every year and love it. Said they wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cape May.
A few slight negatives/areas for improvement: In order to get my Thursday/Friday night stays, I was required to book a minimum of 3 days. Although I got a good rate, I was irked that I had to pay for a third night that I could not use. The continental breakfast was just pathetic - between the horrible location (the meeting room) which was run down, old and sad and the lame selection of food and beverages. If you're going to offer a "free" breakfast, at least make it decent. Also, there was construction going on that started before 7:00 a.m. I appreciate that they are renovating the rooms, but when you're on vacation, you don't always want to be woken to construction noise at that time in the morning. And finally, the bathroom counter and sink was way too high. I'm about 5'6" and I struggled to reach the taps to brush my teeth. Anyone below average height or with children would need a step stool.
As I said, there were a few negatives, but I got the definite impression that this hotel is moving up and the management are interested in making improvements. It should be noted that I had planned to host a group of people for dinner at the hotel's "Harry's" restaurant but it appeared to be closed for the season. As there were a number of people staying at the hotel and it was the end of April, I feel they are missing business by being still closed. There are Coast Guard families like mine who attend bootcamp graduations year round and are looking for somewhere pleasant to stay and to dine and the oceanside location is a big draw. Why not keep the restaurant open?
