We decided to take a quick trip to Cape May for the weekend. After doing some research there seemed to be many hotels that were not fully booked. My husband and I decided to take our chances and arrive without a reservation. We do not normally do this but due to the availability of rooms we tried it. I probably would not recommend this to people traveling with children but we were traveling alone and very flexible. We made a few phone calls and decided to stay at the Grand. There are many amenities if you are a family and the hotel is very clean. We only stayed 1 night here and that was enough, if I were staying longer I would pick a different hotel because the hotel is very busy. The pool is very crowded but clean.The hotel has a ballroom so they cater weddings also. We were going out to dinner one night and there was a wedding going on....you could hear the bass of the wedding music in the rooms. We were on floor 2 and the music was several floors above us and we still heard it. The hotel has a good restaurant, it is across from a beautiful beach, the trolley to downtown stops out front, and the service seems to be friendly enough. My husband and I like a quieter atmosphere so this is why we do not stay here often. If you do not mind busy places you will probably like it here.
Just a note...if you go out at night and take the car beware of parking when you return. The parking pass stipulates the hotel does not guarantee parking. You would have to street park and then move your car in the morning. Many people take the trolley into town but it does stop running so check the schedule. We were going to a late dinner and I did not feel like worrying about the trolley schedule.
