We were in Pa. for a summer wedding and I saw an ad for this hotel on line at Sniqueaway. We decided to go for it and go to Cape May in August, Summertime at the Shore. Our first time ever in Cape May. First time at the Virginia hotel.
First off, this is a cute as a button town. The hotel is like an old Victorian home as Cape May is famous for. So note here... although modern in that it has wifi and flatscreens, it is old in that there is no elevator. It is located in a very good spot, 2 minute walk to the beach but the street is one way and you must valet your car which did work out just fine.
On check in , we were greeted warmly and given basic info. Our bags carried up the stairs by the young bellman. We were on the second floor. 2 flights of stairs. If you have trouble with stairs do not get a 3rd floor room. As I heard a few people say after the climb , next time we ask for floor 2. The rooms were so pretty. Great decor. Great comfortable bed and pillows. Quiet. Clean. Again you are looking at an older room but it is still spacious. Breakfast is delivered to your room or the big front veranda. Nice touch. There are free umbrellas and chairs at the beach. Or rent a cabana as we did. You can order lunch to the beach but I suggest Tommy hot dogs across the street. We did eat at the Ebbitt room while there. See my review. It was a great location to all there is to see . Good walking to stores, restaurants, the beach. You really never have to use a car once you park. It was crowded after all its summer. One thing is I thought the room was warm and asked for a fan and there were none available. This was the only flaw in the mix. We loved the deal and are so happy we jumped at this chance. We met very many repeat customers who come back and if I lived closer I would too. The staff is laid back friendly and not in your face . Everyone was very nice and helpful. Make sure you make a reservation to the Ebbitt room or for that matter any restaurant you chose. this hint will save you major hassle if it is summer. Think in advance and book a table anywhere in town! You will have a hassle free vacay that way. Restaurants are uber crowded.
