“A Unique Experience for Cape May”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

It used to seem that you had 3 choices for accommodations in Cape May: A quaint and charming Bed and Breakfast; a "Mom and Pop" family owned Motel (which more times than not proved to be very dated); or a trip back in time to the rather pricey Congress Hall. Fortunately this time we came cross the Ocean Club, which offers a very modern and comfortable stay.

The hotel was extremely clean and well maintained. The bed may have been the most comfortable I ever slept in at a hotel. The bathroom, while small, was beautifully decorated and up to date. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful - as soon as you enter the pool area they bring towels to you and are happy to set up an umbrella if desired.

With regards to complaints about the air conditioning, I found it did a great job keeping the room cool. It was no where near as noisy as those thru the wall units that many hotels have. By setting the fan control to "on", rather than "auto" you don't notice the noise of the compressor turning off and on as much.

While an on-site gym would have been preferred, they do offer use of nearby facilities for those so inclined. Yes, there is only 1 elevator, but we never had an issue waiting for it - we were on the 6th floor. Rates are a little on the high side, but reasonable when you consider what you are getting and what the competition is charging.

All things considered, we would highly recommend the Ocean Club and will certainly consider it again if our travels bring us back to Cape MAy

Room Tip: Try to avoid a room near the ice machines in the hall - they are rather loud.

I wanted to get away for a few days but didn't want to travel far and decided to stay in Cape May. After searching hotel after hotel I finally decided on the Ocean Club after reading the great reviews. I stayed for 4 days and wish it were longer as I loved this hotel. The hotel was beautifully decorated in a modern motif, the rooms were spacious, view of the ocean magnificent, beds were comfortable, and the staff friendly. They also have a restaurant with a limited menu but plenty to choose from. I was disappointed in the cold crab/corn soup but was immediately given a choice of something else and when I declined they removed the soup from the check. This hotel takes customer service to its highest level and I would come back in a heart beat!

It was such an amazing experience to stay at Ocean Club. Everything from the beautiful 5 star rooms that are comparable to bigger hotels like the W (and the cloud of a bed that almost ruined our stay because we did NOT want to get up out of itt!!) but with the coziness of a boutique hotel. The staff is amazing and Leo the general manager and the rest made us feel like we had friends everywhere! Not just their courteousness but their prompt attention to anything that we needed was unlike anywhere else (where we have to go look for people for help). The POOL was at a perfect temperature and the tiki bar? We didn't need to go out to find anything because it had the perfect atmosphere with the perfect view!
Thank you SOOOO much for pampering us and treating us like royalty!

The attention to detail at the Ocean Club Hotel was very apparent. We loved our room with the ocean and pool view. It was very clean and modern. With the ocean and the pool we felt like we were on a Caribbean island. Thank you to Russ and Garrett and the rest of the staff of the Ocean Club. Everyone was super helpful and kind and willing to answer any question we had. We met some great people at Ocean Club as well and are looking forward to getting back there someday.

Room Tip: Next time we will be requesting one that is on a higher floor for privacy and better views

Top notch all the way!
Our room was immaculate, fine detail to everything. Had microwave, small fridge and a Keurig coffee maker. The bed was probably the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on with tons of pillows
At the pool John the pool attendant was on top of everything. He was excellent always working at keeping the pool area neat and clean. He was extremely accommodating. Thank you John
Had lunch at the pool 2 days sea salt salad was excellent also my husband had the tuna tartar and loved it
Dinner was outstanding both nights 1st class. We always go to cape may and have dined in several different restaurants. By far this was the best yet. A hidden secret. Thank you chef.
All the waitstaff and bar staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.
Hotel had a Miami feel to it very crisp and clean
We would not hesitate to stay again

Our first trip to Cape May was a blast so much we added an extra night. I would highly recommend the Ocean Club Hotel. Christina, Melissa and Russ made our stay very special. The beds were extremely comfortable and house keeping was right on their game. The restaurant was very nice for couples, and the food was great. In summary this is a hotel when I come back again to Cape May I plan on staying at this hotel again with my family.

Room Tip: Stay on 1st floor close to the pool.
