“Clean and economical”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

We have been staying at the Heritage for many years. It is the most economical hotel located on Beach Avenue that is centrally located- a stone's throw to the beach, restaurants and shops. It is family owned and we have found the owners to be friendly and responsive to our wants. The rooms are a decent size and have always been very clean. There is also a pool which came in very handy this year with our 2 yr. old granddaughter. I would recommend this without hesitation or exception.

Our stay (with young children) resulted in a police escort out of the hotel--for our safety. We still tell the story about the night the owner's family member and friends ruined our and other guest's vacation. The questionable ratings for this hotel are spot on. We experienced them all, plus.

Stayed here one time in our 30+ years visiting CM and this is the only poor experience we've ever had.

Beach view was nice! LOVE CM!

We would like to question the validity of this review as there have been no incidents involving any type of "police" involvement at the Heritage Inn. We believe this review to be erroneous, perhaps a different establishment. We have been the owners/operators of the Heritage Inn for the past 38 years operating a family friendly motel with a wonderful repeat clientel.

The Heritage is my favorite place to stay in Cape May! I have three children that range in age from 2 to 15. The location of the hotel couldnt be more convenient! The staff is wonderful and extremly helpful! I recently stayed and asked if it were possible to get a connecting room so we could spread out a bit more. They worked their magic and got us another room (off season, of course, so it was available!) for a great rate. The pool is great, and never seems to get too crowded, even in peak season. My husband and I go there alone for our anniversary whenever we can in October, and I try to take my children every summer for a few days.

We recently stayed at the Heritage Inn for three nights. It is a great location for beach access. The pool was nice and clean, as were the rooms. Staff was very helpful and friendly. This is a good place to stay for families.

We've stayed here for 6 summers in a row and plan to continue. It's always clean, the staff is friendly, and you can't beat the location: close to the beach (great view), close to eating and shopping locations, and a short walk to the Washington Street mall. I was happy that this year they extended the lower pre-season rate a week later, because our school year runs later than most.

right across from the beach, bike rentals a few steps away, restaurants across the street and only a few blocks away, shut off your car and get out and have a good time and this was a good weekend for us, our first time staying here but would go back again.
the owner was very friendly and helped point out where to eat and where to shop and that was very helpful. I have stayed at other places in cape may but this is right in the middle of things and you dont have to drive any where just walk around and have fun.
There are many good places to stay in cape may as well to eat and Im glad i found this one.

Myself and my husband just got back from spending Memorial weekend in Cape May. The Heritage Hotel is located across the street from the beach and within walking distance to all restaurants and bars etc. The front desk staff are personable and helpful. If you are looking for a basic no frills hotel in a good location at an affordable rate then this is the place for you.
