Great stay, clean room, really nice staff. Bed was comfortable. We were a little worried about noise as we were on the first floor by the stairs but had no trouble. We parked the car and didn't use it our entire three day stay. Dining, shopping both short walks and the beach is just across the street. Can't wait to... More

Just returned to Philly after an overnight stay in Cape May. Avondale by the sea is literally right by the sea. Great check in room was available by 2pm. We had a suite on the 3rd floor with great views of the ocean. Room was exceptionally clean, spacious and a great balcony with 2 rocking chairs. Free breakfast in the... More

I have been visiting Avondale by the Sea for years and years. Although the hotel is very basic, it is always clean and I always find it so relaxing sitting on the balcony. It is convenient to everything that I like to do in Cape May. Within the past couple of years the hotel was purchased from Sheila and Herb... More

My girlfriends and I stayed here Friday-Sunday for a girls' weekend at the beginning of June. It was a perfect time to visit Cape May as the weather was warm and nothing was too crowded (it did get a little chilly at night). Avondale by the Sea is in a great location -- directly across the street from the beach... More

Directly across from the Atlantic Ocean and most rooms with a view. Each room as a 2-chair sitting area on the common balcony. Not fancy, tiled floors, simple furnishings, but extremely clean and well-maintained. Continental breakfast offered in the morning. Outdoor pool with towels provided. A very short walk from everything in Cape May. Staff was helpful and accommodating. We... More

First ...get well soon, Heather. A lot of Cape May places are willing to simply take your money and not make any changes or improvements because it's Cape May and they can and they know someone will pay the money. Charlie and Barbara are simply not cut that way. Every year, they are making some sort of improvements, whether big... More

Quaint - we loved our ocean front room- we sat outside on our rocking chairs and enjoyed the view - the room was spotlessly clean the bed was comfortable air condition was great- the continental breakfast was perfect- we will be coming back.
