We enjoyed our stay, and they were very helpful at the front desk. We didn't like our assigned room due to the view, and they moved us to another room. That said, you can ignore any review done in 2016 since they are renovating the place starting in October. I wouldn't get a lower room being the Rusty Nail restaurant,... More

They have it all, the rooms, pool, restaurant, outdoor bar, everything all in one place. They also had entertainment, singers, a band one night! The beach was great, with chairs, umbrella's! Had a wonderful, restful vacation !

Guest safety is their last priority. Willing to put loyal guests in harms way to make money. My fiancé and I and another couple reserved a suite here for Labor Day weekend. A few days before we were set to arrive, we saw that Hurricane Hermine was forecast to hit Cape May during our trip with severe flooding, winds and... More

The motel is clean and with plenty of parking and comfortable beds. It is located towards the end of Beach Road, a few blocks away from the shopping but the trolley picks up one block away. The beach is directly across the street and the motel provides a hose to rinse of the sand before you get into the pool.... More

We just got back from our 3 night stay at The Beach Shack. The place is fun and lively with a great bar and good music. You can walk to most areas that are popular in Cape May. We stayed in a standard room. It was somewhat updated but could use a facelift as per the four star rating. The... More

We picked this hotel because we figured it was related to The Congress Hall so service would be good. This part was true, hotel was staffed by hardworking and pleasant employees. A shout out to hardworking Elijah! I liked that we were invited to the Congress Halls events like the carnival was a blast! Okay the room was basic and... More

When we arrived we asked for a quiet room and were told ours would be quiet. The laundry center was directly outside our bedroom with machines going non stop. The pool was directly in front with kids screaming all day long. The wifi simply does not work and my husband had work to do on a Friday. The bathroom looked... More

The wifi is non existent. It's basically false advertising. If u want to use it u have to basically sit outside the office. I give it 3 stars because they do a good job everywhere else amenity wise but come on its 2016 they must have the first wifi router ever invented. I had same issues with cell signal as... More

I didn't know what to expect when my girlfriend suggested we join her for a few days in Cape May. I was happy with how kind Isabella was at the front desk. She helped add an additional day when we thought we wouldn't be able to. The staff moved our belongings quickly and we were notified when our new room... More
