The Chalfonte is closed for the winter (it closes in October) but I was able to stay at the Southern Quarters for the night when I had to leave my other hotel. It was not the fanciest stay but it was still nice and for...More

This is the oldest Victorian building in Cape May, and old rambling place with a lovely wrap around porch and plenty of rockers and chairs to enjoy the slow pace and sea air. No view of the ocean, but it's only a block or so...More
