We stayed at the Mt. Vernon from Thursday to Monday (July 28 to Aug 1) and had a really great time. The location is just perfect on the quieter end of town but ocean front and sunset at the Cove one block to the right. The beach is less crowded too and the dolphins play all day long right off...

This past trip I think is our 6th time to stay at the Mt. Vernon. You are right on the beach and can walk to the shopping district and all the great restaurants. The family who owns and runs the place are super, friendly and helpful. My Number one priority at a hotel is cleanliness and this supersedes my expectations.... More

I decided to head down to the shore for a few days, spur of the moment. I found a vacancy at the Mt. Vernon and crossed my fingers not knowing what to expect. What a great choice it turned out to be. The room was recently updated, everything was new and spotlessly clean. Same for the grounds and outdoor lounging... More

We just spent a few days in Cape May, NJ and always go back to The Mount Vernon motel. It's located across from the beach and has wonderful views. We also love the fact that we were within walking distance to the restaurants and shops. Rooms are very clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. We love to stay... More

We have been coming to cape may for many years! Every year we stay at Mt Vernon. It's clean, reasonable priced and the view is amazing. It's so close to the cove which is perfect for watching the sunset, dolphins and surfers! The owners are very friendly too!

This place is a gem. Called around for rates and this place had the best price and the ocean view is awesome! Walking distance to town a bit of a hike but worth it. Stayed on the second floor, brought our coolers up, had a blast! We had two rooms, one regular and one efficiency. The staff was friendly and... More

Mt Vernon Motel in Cape May is in a wonderful location. Close to the beach (right across the street) and set away from the hussle of the center of Beach Drive. It is some 500 feet from the end of the payment of Beach Drive. Some of the rooms are efficiencies with coffee makers, microwaves, and 2 burner stove. The... More

Cape May is beautiful but expensive. Our motel was well situated, but expensive($225 = tax) and lacked many amenities which I generally take for granted. These included: a coffee maker, a phone, a clock, shampoo and pamphlets which listed restaurants and attractions . None of these are expensive items. They were available in the efficiency units, which I was never... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Mt. Vernon. Very cozy and very clean. This is a little mom and pop's place is conveniently located across the street from the beach. It may be considered "old school" by some, but updated enough to make it comfortable. Of course you would find some issues would expect from an older building ie: some... More
