3 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

The friendly owner and her sons are helpful and welcoming. The room was as seen in picture - truth in advertising! It is basic and musty and could use some freshening and updating. The pool is small but adequate and surrounded by lounge chairs, although it could use more plants to hide the cars. The biggest problem was the extremely... More

Thanks for your feedback and I do appreciate your suggestion about the plants. As for the mattresses, they were just replaced last year so are still considered to be new. As is typical some folks will find the mattresses soft, others will find the mattresses hard and some will find them just right. So we try to find a medium... More

We've been coming here for over 20 years and there is a reason. The staff is wonderful. They will do everything within their power to make your stay a pleasant one. We booked a first floor room that normally did not have a microwave in it. We asked Gwen if she could get one for us. She said she did... More

We just returned from a three night stay at the Heritage Inn. It is located in the heart of Cape May, directly across the street from the beach and within easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants and sites.This is not a four or five star hotel, however it was clean, comfortable and well maintained. There is a small unheated... More

I have been to the Heritage in twice before, always wonderful stay. Just want to warn tourists to beware of the rooms in the breezeway that look at the concrete wall. The musty smell is overwhelming!! We mentioned to owner who had maid clean w/bleach. This only masked the problem, still smelled musty and we opened all the windows to... More

Thank you for your feedback with regards to your latest stay with us. The breezeway rooms are located in the back of the motel which is what you booked online and they do face the hallway, fortunately there is a sundeck on the 4th floor that allows everyone the opportunity to view the entire beachfront area. If you do ever... More

My husband and I go to Cape May at least every other year. We couldn't get a reservation at our usual place. I searched the internet and found Heritage Inn. I liked the location. We just returned from a three day trip and I'm so glad we picked this place. It was a pleasure to stay there, they are very... More

The room was clean and reasonably quiet. The roms on each for share a common walking area so keeping the blinds closed is something of a necessity. Fortunately there wasn't much foot traffic on the third floor. There's a very nice deck area on the top of the billing that provides a nice evening breeze and good viewing. Great for... More

Nice place on the beach with an amazing & warm staff. We will go back! We had a great corner view and the weather during the second week of September was just right. Ask Gwen for places to go & see. The pizza across the street next to the fudge shop in amazing!

The Heritage Inn is very clean and owners are so friendly. It is right across the street from the ocean and is so convenient to shops and restaurants. I would definately come back and I will absolutely mention to others about this Inn.

Good place, awesome location, nice top deck for seeing just how vast this Jersey coast is. Centrally located and right across the street from the beach and Convention Center. Lots of great shops and restaurants within walking distance, too. On arrival, however, a kinda too-busy young man was not terribly cordial. When I asked if there were other rooms we... More

Amazing staff, unbeatable location! We will definitely come back. Make sure you check out the sun deck and request a room that's ocean facing. Dottie was so sweet and took such good care of our room. See you guys next summer!
