We've stayed here several times. The decor is bare bones but the beach front view, cleanliness of the rooms, and the friendly staff more than make up for this. The A/C is very noisy, though, and it would be nicer if quieter units were installed.

Cape May is a beautiful place with a variation of hotels. We recently stayed Avondale and did not enjoy our experience. First off, we reserved a normal room and were surprised when we arrive to be charged an extra $40 for 2 small children. The location of the hotel is nice, right in front of the beach and walkable to... More

This was the 3rd time we stayed at this hotel. I originally chose it 3 years ago from reviews I read on Tripadvisor and found them to be extremely accurate. You can't beat this hotel for location and cleanliness. It is across the street from the beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants. The rooms are spotless which... More

This review is hard for me. I loved the people who work at this place: extremely friendly and helpful. Thanks to them I would like to give it a better review than it deserves, but I can't. The hotel is very clean and across the street from the beach. These are the positives. But it is a cheap MOTEL in... More

Clean rooms and a fair price. Tough to beat for a 30 second walk from the beach! Continental breakfast will save you time and money. The pool is a very nice change of pace from the sand. Say hello to Barbie!

Charlie & Staff (Alex, Heather..etc ) everyone remembered us from our recent visits & welcomed us to our room within 10 minutes of our arrival (which was 2 hrs earlier than expected). The pool is always clean...properly maintained. Beach access is directly across the street PERFECT location. 3 short beautiful blocks up from the center of town with plenty of... More

EXCELLENT location across from beach and walking to many good restaurants. No bar but can bring drinks from restaurant next door to the pool. Our room was always cleaned early in the... More

We planned to stay here for 4 nights but we had such a great time, we stayed an additional night. Check in was one of the smoothest, most efficient we have ever experienced, less than 5 minutes. Our room was updated and immaculate. Air conditioner worked well, bed was comfortable. They are connected via an outside walkway to the Inn... More

Was so delighted that we were able to book in this motel few days before! Was in Cape May last year but our motel was 5 blocks away. Thankfully there was availability in this location because of last minute plans! First, the manager called to confirm our booking online and informed us that the only available room is on 3rd...
