Had a very relaxing time at Avondale! Staff were friendly and shared hospitality with us. The motel is right across the street from the beautiful beach. Our stay was quiet, and restful. The rooms were clean and tidy. The view from our ocean view 3rd floor room was exquisite!! There also was a pool we could sit by and was... More

My wife and I recently went to visit Cape May for a little getaway. She reserved a two night stay for us at "Avondale by the Sea". We had a wonderful visit. The service here was exceptional and the entire staff were very friendly. They're located right within walking distance to just about everything and directly across the street from... More

We have been staying at Avondale for approx. 20 years and have never been disappointed. Charlie and his staff work tirelessly to make sure all needs are met. Always hate to leave, but if you don't leave, you can't go back.... Looking forward to our next visit.

My friend and I had a wonderful stay at Avondale By The Sea. From the moment I made the reservation 6 weeks prior (because I called several times beforehand to check out stuff) to our visit and then throughout our stay, the staff was so completely accommodating. They extended their hospitality like you were a guest in their own home!... More

They say location is everything and they were right! Avondale by the sea is located on Beach drive and Guerney st., right across from the beach. It's 3 short blocks from the Washington Street mall, where you will find food, drinks and stores. The front desk could not have been friendlier or helpful. The bed was comfortable and I loved...

Avondale by the Sea is a great hotel for a visit to Cape May. The location is perfect, walking distance to town and across the street from the beach. All rooms have balconies with chairs and a view of the ocean. Rooms are large and include amenities.

We stay here every year for a family birthday trip. The location is great. The rooms are what you would expect for Victorian. Very frilly type flair. But they're clean. The staff all are nice and helpful. Breakfast is minimal but that's why Uncle Bills Pancake House is there. Lol. The only thing I would want to make this place... More

Across from beach, close to town, park and leave your car. Owner is present and pays attention to detail. This is a quiet, no smoking on property motel with a lovely pool. Bathrooms are clean but not updated. Guests have two rocking chairs to enjoy views of the beach and promenade. We love the "car show" that rolls by on... More

Just stayed for four days. A large clean room across the street from the beach, continental breakfast and friendly staff. Perfect beach spot. The rocking chairs for each room look out on an ocean view. Not a fancy place, just a good solid choice.

Stayed in a 2-room suite with my husband and almost 3-year old son and the location couldn't have been more perfect. It's a 5-10 minute walk to Washington Street Mall, the beach is literally across the street, they have a great 1 1/2 foot baby pool that my son could go in all by himself while we relaxed, and the...
