We had a great time at the Inn. The rooms are older but the location is great. You can walk to almost anything, the beach is across the street. Our room was #1 and was smaller but a great king bed, nice size bathroom and closet. There was a little porch outside our hallway with some wicker chairs that you... More

We have stayed at the Inn of Cape May a number of times, most recently this past weekend. We love the location and the old world ambiance. The food at the on-site restaurant Aleathea's is among the best in Cape May. We love sitting on the wrap around porch, the staff is great, I can't say enough good things. This... More

This was my wife's birthday trip to Cape May, This hotel is over 100 + years old, rooms are quaint, very clean and we really enjoyed our two day stay. We booked a package that gave us $80 gift card for use in the hotel, and also included breakfast for two. Located one street from the beach is also very... More

If you're looking for a modern hotel, this is not the place for you. But if you're ok with old carpeting and relatively small rooms, then you can't go wrong here. First, you're literally across the street from the beach. Hello. Second, the bar service is great, with very friendly bartenders. Third, the breakfast menu has everything you could want,... More

Awesome historical hotel with beautiful antiques throughout. Clean, large rooms. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant, has three areas to enjoy the outstanding meals. The only issue with the hotel is there is only one elevator which is not self serving and must run by hotel staff and not always readily available.

I just spent a long weekend here with my wife and 18 month old son. I've been to Cape May many times as a kid and adult so I've stayed at many places in town. This was my first and last stay at The Inn of Cape May. This hotel is obviously in an awesome location and the old vibe... More

One star for great location across from beach and in center of everything. It is quaint and old I could live with that but the place is not clean . In any hotel, motel inn etc. you expect your room to be totally cleaned upon your arrival . I don't know why they are paying the housekeeping staff . They... More

My wife and I just returned from a four-night stay--August 22 to 25--at this Cape May landmark. First, the good news: We were delighted by the inn's location, across Ocean Avenue and the beach, and a short walk to the pedestrian mall and the hub of town activities. Our ocean-side room also had a great view of the beach and... More

A nice old Victorian Inn. Lots of charm. Great for families. They have a bar and restaurant, a pool, and it's in a great location right across from the beach! This is old Cape May as it always was, not a newly redecorated boutique hotel. Relax on the porch in a rocking chair or by the pool. Casual attire. Family... More

We spent two nights at this wonderful Victorian inn. We felt as if we stepped back in time but still enjoyed modern amenities like air conditioning, wifi, and a flat screen tv. The inn is perfectly located across the street from the beach and promenade and is only a short walk to the lovely shops and restaurants in the historic... More
