Just recently returned from a three day stay in Cape May.
First the good..... The hotel itself is charming and is in a wonderful location (near the beach and in a very lovely part of Cape May). The bed was comfortable and the food in the restaurant was pretty good. Also, some renovations took place and I really liked the shower stall. The porch rocking chairs are fun.
The bad..... You are not able to individually control the temperature in the room. It is great that the hotel now has air condtioning, but it was a little too cold for me. I did not spend much time in the room, but it was cold once out from under the covers.
Also...remember that it is not a bed and breakfast, so food is not included with the room rates.
T.V's are not in the rooms, but there is a communal tv on the main floor.
Wanted to give a higher rating..........but I was quite bothered by how cold my room was.
