My parents and myself found this place last minute during a trip to Cape May. While the website picture shows what it truly looks like, I was unfamiliar with the area. I didn't realize how industrial of an area that it was. It's about 15 min from Cape May, 5 min to Wildwood, and 1 min from the highway. The noise from the street is very audible in the room throughout the night even though I'm usually a deep sleeper.
Perhaps this is a 3 star motel compared to Wildwood hotels, but this is 1 star compared to Cape May. I didn't feel all that safe when I went to check in...the check in desk is behind a bullet proof glass. The man who I talked to on the phone originally quoted me a price that was higher than the website but I did not argue it because we were desperate for a place. He did ask how old we all were to prevent <21 year olds from staying at his place.On the upside, the woman (his wife) who worked there was very nice.
The room felt dirty and unclean. There was a smell in the room...a mix of new paint (which is good) and smoke (which is bad). There was one thin white sheet under the comforter. The pillow was okay...the mattress looked clean when I looked under the sheet. The bathroom was decent.The one person couch had a cigarette burn mark. The desk chair was stained (looks like someone sprinkled baking powder on the chair). The back room had termite flies flying behind the curtain on the window. There was no phone in the room (even though they advertise wake up call service). There are frills to the room - no tissue paper, 1 small bar of soap, 2 plastic cups - one which was broken, 2 sets of towels...that was it.
I think it depends on what you want, but I would not stay there again. For the money, I didn't think it was a good value. I think for last minute stays, I would have been better looking at the south end of Wildwood for similarly priced options.
