I guess a lot of the hotels in Cape May have views of the water like ours; however, the Montreal Inn has wonderful service and VERY clean accomodations. I also liked that it was not right in the center of things. Having a little less noise than some of the other hotels was very nice for relaxing and sleeping. The reason we choose Montreal Inn was we needed a two night stay on a three day weekend. Most of the hotels in Cape May insisted on the three night minimum and the Montreal Inn had a two night minimum (for Columbus Day weekend). That was wonderful and we appreciated it since we were only coming to Cape May for a wedding (although we would love to come again for a longer stay).
