Late July 2013, we returned to the Capri for a 4th straight year, for a 7 night stay. Once again, there's not much negative to say about the Capri. Location, view, convenience, it's all there. The improvements over the years (especially the new mattresses) help make our stay even better. Staff is friendly, the free popcorn makes kids and adults happy, the free Wifi is appreciated. We'll definitely return next year.

The only negative would be the washrooms. Although I understand that renovating washrooms is a major investment, it'll need to happen eventually. They are outdated, which would be OK if the overall condition was still perfect, but our room's bathtub tiles had several spots of grout missing and this will eventually turn into mold behind the walls. Having bee in other rooms in the previous years, I can confirm tht this applies to other rooms as well.

Room Tip: 2nd and 3rd floors offer a magnificent view of the beach and ocean. Very much worth the extra $

We booked the Capri for a last minute get-away. Stayed for 3 days. Very good location to beach, restaurants, etc. They allowed us to park and use their shower/changing room on checkin and checkout days so that we could enjoy the beach. Very clean and nice amenities to keep kids busy - shuffleboard, ping pong, pool. Benches outside of room and seating in the courtyard to enjoy the nice weather in the evenings. Pool is only open from 10am - 6pm. Wish the pool would stay open later into the evening - 9pm? The kids enjoyed the fresh popped popcorn for an afternoon snack. Would definitely stay here again.

This is our second time here in two years. Furnishings are simple ( don't come here expecting the Hyatt or Marriott), the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, there is on site parking (mostly covered), and the motel is located directly across from the beach. The only real and consistent negative is the musty odor in the rooms. Last year -- we changed rooms twice--the smell was rather strong. That same strong musty odor was present this year as well, but we were able to mostly ignore it ( this was a last minute booking and vacancies elsewhere were hard to find). We think the smell is from the carpets. A combination of moist sea air and the left over smoke residue from people who cook on the stoves in the kitchenettes. Whatever the cause, this same smell can be found in multiple rooms here. It's too bad, because otherwise, this is a very pleasant spot for a family stay. We, kids included, had a nice time overall, but perhaps the motel owners should consider removing the carpets from one room as an experiment, and putting in easy to clean hard tile flooring to see if that makes a difference. This place ( which does appear to be kept very clean) would be ideal if the rooms smelled fresh. Simple cleaning and vacuuming is not enough to solve the problem. Would I come back here again? My wife would not, since she is very sensitive to strong aromas. For myself, I would consider it again if it was a last minute booking and rooms were available.

The Capri Motor Lodge was convenient, clean, and comes highly recommended. It is located directly across the street from the beach. We were also able to walk to restaurants and shops if we did not feel like driving. I was happy to use the carts provided to transport our luggage to our well kept room using the elevator. Our room was an immaculate two-bed efficiency with a refrigerator and a dining area. We could see the crystal clear pool and the Atlantic Ocean from our room or from the park bench outside of our room. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They kept the grounds and the entire place beautiful. We are looking forward to returning to this gem! Please read the other reviews as I did not want to repeat the other positive comments that were already communicated. Joe Della Ferra Belleville, NJ

We just spent three days at the Capri and it was everything we needed and nothing we didn't. Having booked at the last minute we had a choice of this property or others costing twice as much. We had a pool, the beach, shuffle board, corn toss, gas grills, and ping pong just outside our door. I didn't see anyone on the streets streaming out of other lodging having a better time than us.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floors with a view if possible.

This was our third trip to Cape May, we love it down there, however this was our first time staying at the Capri Motor Lodge. We REALLY enjoyed our stay there. It is a great place for families to stay. They have things for kids to do as far as ping pong, and shuffleboard, along with the pool. We liked that they had the gas grills there for us to use!! It had a real "backyard" feel. My son was able to play in the grassy area with his toys which was really great! It was very clean, the maid service was also great, all the staff was very helpful. We will be staying there in our future trips!!
