My best friend and I have been staying at the Stockton Inns for at least 8 years. Naturally over time we have gotten to know the staff. They are terrific. We have stayed on all floors. We prefer the 3rd floor (closest to the ocean). Our room is always immaculate. There is a flat screen tv, fridge, wifi, coffee maker kitchenette (in room 215). I love room 215 because I can walk out of my door and onto a beach chair. Many times I will sun myself on the 3rd floor deck to avoid the noise or kid play at the pool. It's heaven. I should also mention, the pool is spotless as well. If you stay there for 24 hours, you will notice there is "round the clock" staff maintaining the properties at all times. It's mainly the owner that is always working. (cleaning the pool, washing the driveway, emptying ash trays, cleaning rooms.....) you name it, someone is doing it. There are rules and it's impressive that they are actually enforced. (Not that there is a need, but you can tell it's just "nice".
Even when we don't stay on the 3rd floor, we take our morning coffee up to the 3rd floor and sit on the balcony. It is the best view in Cape May. I have found the other people on vacation that happen to stay at the Stockton are friendly and respectful. I know for a fact this is not the case at other places in Cape May. The location is great. We can be at the square or mall or beach in 5 minutes. Everything is just so beautiful so the walk is most enjoyable. There is also a Wawa in 5 minutes drive time. (Great for last minute items).
Most importantly, the woman who runs the front dest....Patty. She is wonderful. I am always excited to see her (I mean, she's a sight for sore eyes after the 2 hour drive and she's about to hand me keys to my holiday!!!) She has always been super helpful with reccomending local food and entertainment. One time I lost a very special ring. I was on the AC expressway in a total panic. I called Patty. She put me on hold and when she got back on the phone....she had the maid check my room and had it safely in her hands!!! I don't think you find trust like this just anywhere. Aside from that, she has always been so helpful working with our dates and getting us our favorite room!!
Cape May is beautiful, clean, classy and charming. There are other wonderful places to stay in Cape May......I'm sure.......but I'll never be able to review them....because I'll never cheat on the Stockton;)
