3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The good: clean room, friendly staff, comfortable bed.The bad: The microwave, fridge, and bathroom mirrors looked like salvage goods. The microwave had holes from previously being undermounted. Mirrors missing silver backing along edges. Fridge so battered, looked like curbside find. Drop ceiling used expensive tiles but installed by someone who had never done the work before. In the end felt like a very expensive Econo Lodge.Result: Would stay again but rate would have to be much less.

We went for an overnight in Mach as we have been doing fo a few years. It is a great deal this time of year. They did a great job keeping the pol warm. Mch better than last year. I go with my wife and daughter and we mostly hang at the pool. A great winter break up. Good job.

Room Tip: Main building best in winter.

I brought a group of families for the last weekend of January.This was the first time I actually had a vacation catered,it was unbelievable.Great and lots of food, beautiful ballroom.It was a real vacation no pressure of deciding what food to bring etc.Kudos to 1880 a caterer from lakewood great presentation and such an excess of tasty food. Special thanks to GM John the pool made such a difference as there isnt much to do in that area during the winter ,but the pool made all have a wonderful time.
..Thanks to Debbie for all the extra work she did for our group.PS John needs to get some more help as he is so busy and its so difficult to get hold of him.

Room Tip: with family take a suite you have much more living space it makes a huge difference especially if yo...

We recently were in Cape May for a family function and stayed at The Grand. I would highly recommend the Grand to anyone. The hotel sets on Beach Avenue across the street from the beach. The Grand has Hemmingway's, which is an outstanding restaurant and bar. Even though t was the off season they had a full menu available. We had an efficiency room with a king bed and a separate living room. They have all the amenities including a workout facility and indoor and outdoor pools. A great experience in a great town.

Room Tip: Be sure and get an efficiency, it doesn't cost much more than the basic room and is well worth t...

I must confess I stay at the Grand Hotel whenever I vacation or weekend in Cape May. I have made a history of memories there that my family and I cherish. I have been going there for the past 7 years. Well enough about me. About the hotel and why you should consider it.

• It is located across the street from the beach.

• Great views from most rooms

• Huge Outdoor pool

• Has an indoor pool that sets it aside from the rest of the hotels especially in the off season.

• Affordable packages.

Now even I have to admit that some of the rooms in the hotel need work. Usually a rug needs to be kicked, maybe some tile ceilings need to be repaired or painted, but the rooms are clean and the service is friendly and prompt. The lobby is beautiful and as I mentioned the indoor pool is like none other. I will continue to stay at the Grand, its home away from home.

Nice hotel. Love the fact they have the only indoor pool in Cape May so the weather is never a factor. The rooms are clean . The beach right across the street is the largest on the cape so you can have space, not like most of the other beachfront hotels everyone's on top of each other.

Room Tip: The newer rooms are more modern and larger than the lower rooms
