The room was lovely and well appointed (even a mini fridge). The beds were a different story altogether...... even though there were memory foam mattresses they had retained someone else's memories. I was only able to sleep by laying sideways on the bed. My wife had similar issues. Reception staff was very helpful. All rooms seem to have an ocean... More

Quaint. Friendly. Unique. I am asked to write minimum of 200 words to describe this hotel, however, quaint, friendly and unique best sum up the environment, the hostess, and the vintage hotel. Celebrating 100 years this year, and continuing to keep a cozy and comfortable stay, by providing minimal modern technology, made it perfect for us. Sunrise is beautiful from... More

My husband and I came for a wedding and stayed here because the wedding hotel was sold out. I could book through hotels.com which I was happy about because I got the points!

We booked this hotel in advance as it was reasonably priced and well located. I read reviews about the stairs and no elevator but it was of no consequence. We were on the third floor which basically is one floor up. The hotel is very central to Cape May, we walked everywhere. The staff was most helpful. The rooms were... More

My wife & I always stay here when on vacation in Cape May. Priced right, especially being right across the street from the beach. In walking distance of so many things that we love to do, especially the main shopping area. All other things are a short driving distance away. Rooms are always so clean and plenty of parking. No...

Even though it is located across the street from the beach, this "boutique" hotel leaves quite a bit to be desired. The hospitality from the staff was indifferent and ungracious, the beds and pillows hard, and the shower in our room was so small that it sprayed on the floor when used (the curtain wasn't enough to contain what was...

The hotel is right across the street from the beach. You can't be any closer to the beach at Cape May. That alone is a huge plus. Another plus for me was the price of the room during peak season. Granted I travelled alone and booked the room the night before and got what I thought was a great price,... More

No hospitality shown. Upon arrival the front desk was unoccupied, it was a good 10 minutes before someone showed up and that person did not offer an apology for the wait, no welcome to the hotel/Cape May, no enjoy your stay, no “any questions”. It was the same as we checked out, no thank you for staying with us, no... More

My husband and I stayed at the Macomber hotel from August 26-28, 2016. I booked it before I knew that it was supposedly haunted, so shame on me for not reading more reviews.
