Our original room before moving 2 times was old and musty. The door barely closed so much that you could see outside.

OK for our one night stay but I wouldn’t want to spend a vacation here. Room itself was nicely updated but no attention to detail. The window cranks on our windows were broken, the mattress was awful, and the a/c was off for the season despite our room being 78 when we checked in. That made the windows an issue.

Terrible experience. Facility is run down, tears in the curtains, old furniture we were afraid to even sit in. Despite having the manager call me when we walked out to offer a different room , the second room was not much better. Did not stay, drove home instead. Ruined our weekend plans. Never returning.

Upon checking in we were greeted friendly and courteously. Very helpful in finding our room and where to park with a map of the hotel. Once we got to our room we found a large clean and organized room. There was a clean kitchenette. The sink, refrigerator, microwave and stove top were clean. The bathroom was clean with plenty of towels. The facial and toilet tissues were of the high end soft type. Not the sand paper type. Sink and bathtub clean. The safe worked well. A very pleasant stay for our Labor day weekend get away.

This hotel is a solid 3. Personally I felt like the pictures and description of this hotel are misleading. I am attaching a picture of the other half of the hotel which is not featured online. You can compare to what you see featured online. The rooms are nicely renovated and they are clean. The refrigerator is larger than a mini fridge. The beds are comfortable. There is a small balcony with two rocking chairs and a view of the ocean. One thing they failed to mention is that even though there is beach access directly across the street, it is NOT included with the price of the room. Thankfully I had cash in the beach bag to pay that. One of the days the weather was horrible so we decided to check out the indoor pool. It was very hot in the room and the area had not been updated for quite some time. When I got home I looked up neighboring hotels to compare prices and the nicer, neighboring hotels are a little less expensive. I will definitely try one of those the next stay in Cape May.

The hotel was right across the street from the beach. The front desk concierge, the cabana attendants and the bartenders were all excellent. The pool bar had excellent food and great drinks. The steel drum player was a great touch! Our 2 level suite was a little smaller than we anticipated, but updated and comfortable.
