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. I'm way too much of a believer and was a little uncomfortable with the idea. But it turned out to be a very pleasant stay. We were... More

This hotel was cool. It's old but clean. The staff was helpful. We had a very comfortable stay. The hotel is close to restaurants and bars. The beach is across the street. To cold in April but all in all we had a blast. Would stay again!

A last minute 3 night getaway was very enjoyable for a 1st time visit to Cape May. Hotel Macomber was directly across from the beach. The room was on the top floor, sot it was a 54 stair walk up, but not difficult for us, even with a small suitcase. The room was very clean, air conditioned and comfortable. The... More

We took the family for a short weekend getaway and stayed at the Hotel Macomber. The location is perfect, cross the street and you are at the beach. The staff was very friendly and greeting. The room was fair, but the other offerings made up for a truly basic room. We would stay again, but would check for other options... More

We chose this hotel for our Cape May getaway because it was such a great deal and was hard to pass up. Upon arriving to the hotel, we were greeted by the friendly front desk staff and walked up to our room. BE WARNED there is not elevator in this hotel. We were placed on the third floor and huffed...
