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 greeting so nice by Charlie and Heather when we checked in. The young gentlemen (forgot his name , sorry) also insisted on helping us with our luggage :) Our room was spotless as it was last time, and very well cool! The pool was immaculate, and as always "Barbie" is the best!! She makes sure everything runs smoothly at... 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...

We visited for a week in early August 2016 (Room 216, then moved to room 215). Everyone here was so nice to us, they made us feel like family. Especially all of the front desk staff, Barbie at the pool who was so friendly and helpful to all of the guests - always smiling and a pleasure to be around,... More

Perfect location to everything in cape may. Walking distance to everywhere. Laundry on each floor, but No elevator for luggage/chairs etc. spacious room, but needs a little updating. Right across the street from the beach and restaurants.

We stayed here for 3 nights and were impressed by the cleanliness of our room and the bathroom. The beds were also very comfortable and the coffee at breakfast was nice and strong. The room did have a very muggy smell, however, the days we were there it was extremely humid and it had rained. So as long as we... More

Please refer to my previous review in 2012 for all the good stuff, and an update on two things I commented on less favorably, that have changed: beds are new, and way more comfy, and the vanity shelves have been replaced by less intrusive ones, making it easier to move around in the bathrooms. Thank you, Charlie and team, for... More

First let me start off by saying we have been to Cape May many times and have stayed at many places. From resort hotels to B&B's. On this stay we booked the Avondale by the Sea. This was our first time there. It won't be our last! Our check in was on time and Alex at the front desk was... More

The Avondale was an extremely clean hotel, which is one of, if not the, most important piece of a hotel for me. The rates for the rooms were a little steep for what you received, considering there wasn't even an elevator, but it's expected to pay this in cape may. The hotel had nice views and the staff was very... More
