The Heritage Inn is just across the street from the beach. It is also within walking distance to Washington Square. Gwen and the others are very friendly. If you have any questions about the area they will help you out.

Stayed here in December, 2018 during the weekend of the West Cape May Christmas parade. Great location on Beach Ave. The staff and manager Gwen were super nice and helpful. Beds were comfy, room was nice. Would definitely stay here again.

I had to cancel due to illness and called directly after being in cancellation limbo on an internet site that I had initially booked through. After explaining my situation, the manager was kind enough to allow me a credit to use on a future excursion to Cape May. Had I not

I do apologize that you were charged the cancellation fee, however you were instructed, if you recall, to cancel your reservation thru BOOKING.COM where you originally made it so you wouldn't be charged according to their policies. We are not permitted to cancel any BOOKING.COM reservations, they must be cancelled directly by the guest. We did take you off our books but you never cancelled thru booking.com who in turn charged us. This is why I do urge guests to book direct and not go thru various booking sites. I would have extended a credit to you for 1 night at the Heritage as I have in the past for other guests as you could read in their reviews as a courtesy.

I have allergies to mold and am quite sensitive to it. As the ocean is across the street, there is an unavoidable moisture in the air. However I found this establishment clean. For myself, I took a Zyrtec-D and it rectified it for me. However as I do not have asthma, I'm not sure how you would fare? Perhaps you might want to consider somewhere else more inland?

"Has two sinks and lots of room."
"The rooms were fabulous!"
"Third floor offers the best view. Make sure you can climb the stairs with your luggage. WiFi reaches all levels. It’s free. "
"Second floor options have views and great for sunbathing, lower floors good for those with problems with steps."
"I think the second floor would be the best option. Fewer stairs but away from the street and the pool."
$176 - $378 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
