Had a wonderful time at Icona. Place is beautiful n so clean. Everyone is just so friendly what got me is the make up remover pads they gave. Icona is right across from the ocean. Is is also close to the shopping district where all the fabulous stores are located.

Hotel's Favorite
Before we even got down to the Icona in Cape May the service was already exemplary. It was a last minute stay during the heart of the summer and they managed to string some rooms together for us What we thought could be inconvenient meaning switching rooms mid stay was wonderfully smooth and fantastic accommodations. Once we arrived we were treated like we were showing up at our families house everybody was friendly accommodating caring and concerned. Lastly my husband and I are extreme particular about cleanliness and the Icona delivered! Its a cozy little hotel right across the street from the beach and it was spotless and a pleasure to be at. The Icona was definitely a part of why we loved being in Cape May which is not usual for a jersey shore hotel Lastly we want to give a shout out to the people who made our stay Joanne, Stephanie, Lisa and Albert thank you so much for everything- Hope to see you all again soon!!

At first we were a little skeptical...looks very small compared to the Grand Hotel next door. We were so happy in this little piece of heaven on Cape May. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and well equipped. The staff and customer service superb from the moment we checked in to the moment we left. I cannot ring their praises enough, Thank you to Chet, Trisha, John, Al and the entire staff for giving us a great weekend. We will be back and we cannot wait to return. Mahalo!!!

Everyone at the Icona was friendly, helpful, and willing to share information. Our room was clean and very comfortable. We were never disturbed by noise from other guests. We only used the shuttle once because the hotel had many guests. The room amenities were perfect——Kerurig, pods, lotion, shampoo, etc. it was convenient having a microwave and refrigerator. Location of the Icona was great for our planned activities.
