I want to thank the Montreal Inn for saving my vacation! I booked a room at another hotel but was later told they were overbooked for the first night. This hotel contacted the Montreal Inn which gave me a one bedroom suite for one night and access to all of the Inn's amenities, for the price of the regular room I had booked at the other hotel.
I was very surprised when I checked in and gave them my name to be greeted effusively and given a welcome packet with my name on it and the manager's name in case I needed anything. Check in only took two minutes, with a reminder to let them handle any issues arising from the change. Hands down, this is some of the best customer service I have had.
After that warm welcome, I was thrilled with the room! Parking is in the back (and it is as tight as others have said) with direct access to your room from the parking lot. As we walked in, there was a bedroom with a Queen size bed, a flat screen tv and large closet. Next was an updated kitchenette with granite counters. Then, a spacious bathroom and finally, a living room with another flat screen tv, a 4 person breakfast bar and a love seat/sleeper sofa that turned into a full size bed. The room was absolutely spotless! Maid service was fast and of excellent quality. The whole hotel really shines.
The rooms on the First floor open directly onto a patio right next to the pool. This is perfect for parents of little kids who want fast access to the pool. But not so good for those who want to keep their curtains open, but still have privacy. We decided that since the room was so nice, the patio, which is a very generous size, was not a problem.
The hotel is home to Harry's Ocean Bar & Grille, a really nice restaurant where we had a good lunch, as well as a nice pool bar with a good guitar player (Jimmy Buffet tunes!) and delicious drinks (great non-alcoholic Strawberry Daiquiris).
The hotel is also attached to a pleasant liquor store. It's not obtrusive, but convenient.
The hotel is across the street from the beach at the quieter end of Cape May. I'm glad we stayed here, there was a fun atmosphere on the beach but it never felt crowded.
The hotel provides beach tags for everyone in the room (return them at the end of your stay to avoid a charge) as well as two beach chairs per room (until 5:00 pm), that the hotel sets up for you. This is a $25.00 value. To me, it's worth more than that since I didn't have to lug chairs in the back of my car and across the beach. Additional chairs, umbrellas and Cabanas are available for rent on the beach. The hotel also offers food at the beach from Harry's Ocean Bar & Grille, which they bring to your chair.
I can't say enough about this hotel. Great customer service, friendly, well situated and a good value. Thank you again to everyone at the Montreal Inn!
