“Treated like Queens!”
Reviewed May 22, 2006

We took a Ladies' Retreat to the Grand Hotel the end of April. The service was superb--we were treated like Queens! Their indoor pool has beautiful lounges and painted wall murals. The rooms in the hotel have all been upgraded and nicely appointed. The conference facilities are great and any inquiry of needed items was immediately met by their gracious staff. For example. "I need a DVD player and TV"--moments later it was in place! The front desk handled our large group (400) very quickly and efficiently at check-in. The food is outstanding and there's plenty of it! The views of the ocean are great! The little shops are fun. You can visit the historic lighthouse. You can tour the grand old Victorian homes. The trolley tours are informative. We are definitely returning next year!

My husband and I just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Cape May. We stayed at the Grand Hotel(the Grand Rhapsody week-end special). We had a wonderful time there. The staff was more than accomadating and our room was very clean. The restaurant(Ballyhoo's)was the best part of the whole week-end. We loved the breakfast buffet. We also had dinner there. The food was excellent. It was our first trip to Cape May and we do plan on going back, and we also plan on staying at The Grand again.

Our Family stayed at the Grand over easter and had a wonderful time! The weather was great, the kids never left the indoor pool, and we enjoyed the whirlpool. Our room was very nice. The hotel also so had a game room and a small gym. We had the easter brunch and it was very good. When we were checking out we made our summer reservations, and we were able to reserve the same room we had on this trip.

We spent the weekend at the Grand in Feb, and had a excellent time. We booked 3 rooms all were very nice, and very clean. The indoor pool was also a nice feature as our kids used it on both days! Not much open this time of year, but if you want to relax and enjoy time with your family this is the place to in cape may. Great just relaxing and watching the waves break on the beach!!

The rooms looked nice but absolutely no counter space in bathrooms. We also had a bad experience in the restaurant Ballyhoos. Waitress that never returned after we sent back 2 plates of ice cold food. I guess she was insulted. No coffee in the rooms and we were shocked to have to pay nearly 4.00 for 2 cups of coffee we had to go down to get. Not one person working in that hotel was happy to help you. No smiles. The ones we encountered didn't seem to like their jobs. I am sorry to say but next time we will have to choose another hotel I worked for Nordstrom for many years and I know what good service means especially for repeat business.

We went to the Grand Hotel on the weekend of March 3rd - March 6th to stay for a cheer competition in Wildwood. After reading some of the reviews I have to admit I was a bit nervous about staying there. Upon check in my worries began to subside very quickly. We stayed in a townhouse and it was wonderful! The room was clean and very comfortable. The bedroom is upstairs and very roomy! We had a kitchenette that was stocked with all kinds of cooking utensils so we were able to make our meals on Friday and Staurday instead of going out. Other members on the team went to Ballyhoo and siad the food was very good. The pool is very spacious and very warm and so it the hot tub -again very clean. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. I think the hotel would be absolutely gorgeous during the summertime. If I was going back to Cape May for any reason - I would not even hesitate to stay at The Grand Hotel again!
