We called last minute, and since there are very few hotels in Cape May with King sized beds, we thought this would do just fine. Parking was not a big deal since it was off season. We were however very disappointed that we weren't warned that there was a reception being held literally below our room! When we came in at 9:50PM and heard all the music and loudness, I went up to the lobby desk, and said to the attendant "you didn't warn us", he said "we have a lot of these, it will be over at 10:30" then turned on his heel and walked away. I was NOT happy. So, 10:45PM the music stopped. The party-goers continued until just after midnight. Also, the configuration of bathroom was odd and poorly designed. When you opened the door, you couldn't enter the bathroom without squeezing past the door you just opened. The toilet was directly in front of the door, and made it difficult to go for a quiet jaunt to the potty in the middle of the night. Dan, that booked us into our room was vey nice , but we do wish he had warned us about the wedding as well. The bed was very comfortable, one lamp didn't work, there were obvious blemishes from it being a very old structure. The toilet seat wouldn't stay up for my husband, so we had to move the tank cover back toward the wall further to make room for the ill-fitting seat. The vanity had one sink, but the counter seemed unusually deep and made it hard to put on my makeup, and that was the only mirror in the room. It would have been nice to have a full length mirror, maybe other rooms had one. We won't be staying there again. The cost was steep even in the off season, and I'd prefer to stay in a quiet hotel.
