The Heritage Inn was wonderful! The greatest pro to this inn is the location. You can walk to multiple restaurants and shops. The Fudge Kitchen, Quincy’s Lobster Rolls, Rita’s and the Bagel Time Cafe were all frequent stops for us. You can also walk to the Washington Street Mall and visit all the shops. Oh and the beach is literally right across the street! You can’t beat that. As for the inn itself the staff was pleasant and the rooms were clean. The beds were comfortable. It came with a microwave, mini fridge, tv - everything we needed. I think this was a very affordable and fair cost for the stay. I appreciated the 5% discount for paying cash. I would most definitely stay here again! Thanks so much for making our trip awesome Heritage Inn! We will be back! :)

This was our 5th time in Cape May and our 4th time staying at the Heritage Inn. The ownership and staff have treated us like family each time and have even arranged for us to be able to stay in the same room each year! Everything is very clean/sanitary and we enjoyed getting to know other guests while hanging out at the nice sized pool. The rooftop sundeck is also a really nice feature. Plenty of designated parking out back if the side spots are full, but you are always able to pull right up front to load/unload. The beach is directly across the street, and you can walk/bike to all the best places, so you really can't ask for a better location. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel, and we look forward to returning again next summer!

the owners are wonderful. We arrived early, so we were able to park our car. First night fridge broke and we had a new one within an hour. Tyler was wonderful. Next day an elderly gentlemen was booked there and his room was on second floor, being in a cast and walking with a walker they quickly changed his room to ground level. Theye are always polite, courtesy and very friendly. We couldn't have picked a better place and we will be back. Thank you Gwynn for a clean, bright and wonderful stay.

My wife and I booked The Heritage Inn based on online reviews and availability. We could not be happier with our choice. Check in was fast and easy. Gwen was friendly and accommodating. She shared dining and entertainment recommendations with us. Our room was perfect. The whole place is perfect. The location is terrific with the beach right across the street. The proximity to dining and an easy walk to the mall makes this the right place to stay in Cape May. Thank you Gwen for making our stay so comfortable and memorable. We will stay at Heritage Inn again.
