Recently stayed in one of the King Suites for a long anniversary weekend. The hotel was excellent - friendly staff, great room overlooking the ocean, and wonderful location - right on the beach in a quieter part of town but an easy walk to the action along Ocean Drive and the Washington Street Mall. There is a shuttle that will take you anywhere in Cape May while you're there, but we enjoyed walking.

A Quick Escape for 2 nights in Cape May. We were down to attend our friends 40th Wedding Anniversary. This was our second time staying at Icona and we enjoyed our stay. The attention to detail is evident in the layout of the property and the cleanliness of the rooms and common areas. Totally stress free. The staff is accommodating and always willing to go the extra mile to keep guests happy. The front desk crew always willing to help and always with a smile. We will return for another stay soon. My opinion, the best hotel in Cape May

This hotel has it all! Location, tastefully decorated rooms and immaculate. On top of all that it offers a shuttle service to take you around Cape May. If you're all about the pool, it is rather small. However, the beach is right across the street. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We had an awesome time! It was our first time staying here. All the staff were so friendly and accommodating. The shuttle was very convenient, and having chairs and towels brought to and from beach was an added bonus! The rooms were clean, and the bed/pillows were very comfortable. We plan to be back!

From arrival, the staff at Icona Cape May was so kind and welcoming. Our room and our view was so clean, spacious and the cleaning women were great. One of our favorite parts was the shuttle which took us anywhere on Cape May. The driver, Mike was absolutely AMAZING and so unbelievably welcoming! He was the most kind and personable person we met on our trip. He really made us feel at home. He was so great with the diverse population! He really made our stay that much better. We were very great full for his services and made sure to tip him generously as he was working so hard. We also visited Icona Diamond Beach. The beach was private and felt secluded from crowds. We loved having the chairs and umbrellas laid out for us for free. We hope to come back soon and to see Mike and the rest of the Icona staff!
