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

The restaurant wasn't anything to write home about but again convenient. The beach facilities were helpful umbrellas chairs and lunch . We were on... 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

We've stayed at the Beach Shack on a few occasions. We all enjoy staying there, they're a very dog-friendly hotel with rooms for your dog. The beds are very comfortable, and because it was so hot and humid this trip, we had the AC on at night, which drowned out any noises from outside. They have a restaurant on site... More

Our family of 4, two parents in their 40's and two teens, stayed at the Beach Shack 7/22-7-25. We had a fantastic time! The room had one queen size bed and two twins. Everyone had enough room to sleep comfortably. The beds were comfortable and the room (although dated) was spotless. The staff were all friendly and hard working. I... More

Our extended family has come to the Beach Shack for a few years so far. I wish we would not have gone back this year. In years past, the hotel had been mediocre, but we spent most of our time at the beach anyways, so it was fine. When we arrived, check in was prompt, but when we went to... More
