The exterior of this hotel seems a bit old and drag, but to our surprise the rooms were actually quite modern and clean. We stayed in the townhouse room and we accommodated 7 people comfortably. There definitely aren't enough luggage carts and even when you get them they barely fit through the corridors, especially when the maid service is working.... More

Had stayed here once before, so searching for a hotel in the area, this was one that had a vacancy. Two couples stayed for 3 nights. Last time the rate was a lot less, but they raise the price in prime season. Good location, across from the beach, which you have to pay for to get on before 4 o'clock.... More

Love The Grand Hotel! Been vacationing there for 10+ years. Had a wonderful stay, clean room, and air worked very well. The staff was friendly. The only issue my husband and I had was the bed. We stayed in the ocean view grand room. The bedding was awesomely comfortable however the bed itself not so much. Extremely hard mattress, hard... More

We stayed in the townhouse accommodation. Great location and ocean view. You can actually see the Dolphins from your balcony. Wonderful outdoor and indoor pools. Have spent entire days at the outdoor pool. Highly recommended. Family and child friendly .

We stayed here in June for an anniversary celebration and were blown away with how clean, spacious, and comfortable our room was. We stayed in the newly renovated portion of the hotel which had a beautiful kitchen, balcony, and TWO stories!! The hotel is right across the street from the beach and is easy walking distance to great restaurants. The... More

My mom, sister, and I wanted a little getaway and we chose Cape May. We brought my three year old daughter as well. I wanted a nice and modern hotel that wouldn't break the bank. This was the perfect choice. We purchased a standard room with two beds on Expedia. When we arrived they could not give us an early... More

My family had a lovely stay at the Grand in a King Efficiency. The Grand is listed as a 2.5 star hotel. The reviewers that are upset that it's not a fancy hotel should look at the hotel stars. It is a nice simple beachfront motel in lovely Cape May. It was $320 or so a night because it's August... More

We stayed here for 4th of July and were pleasantly surprised by how nice the room was. It was newly renovated and felt like we were staying in a beach cottage. Beds were comfortable and room was clean. Front staff was pleasant with us. Gift shop attendant was very friendly. Pool was clean but the room was hot. The A/C... More

Been coming here the last 5 years. The poolside rooms are newly renovated and very clean. Poolside and hotel staff are fantastic. Hemingway's food was awesome and staff are very friendly. The word is more rooms in the main building will all be renovated by next summer.

We have stayed here for the past 5 years and once for Thanksgiving. It is VERY clean. You ALWAYS see the housekeeping staff cleaning the grounds. They have stuff for the kids almost nightly (face painters and such) as well as adults (tiki bar and steel drums). It is directly across from the beach and there is a bathroom as... More
