Convenient location ...dated, but clean room.
The front desk staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The room was dated, Ac kind of worked and the bed was small, but we had a nice view from the common balcony. It was clean and comfortable and that's all I really need. Maid came every day, though she clearly doesn't read the do not disturb signs. Knocked every time it was on the door. Loved the beach resort service. Nothing like not having to worry about a chair or towel. These are provided for you. The bar and restaurant were good. Live entertainment until 9pm. Fun atmosphere. One gripe I have is the Rusty Nail on the property, food was good, but the staff turned us away at 930PM when the menu and staff say they serve until 10PM . Major thumbs down since everything in town was closed except the ice cream parlor and small Pizza parlor.

Cape may wedding
Booked this hotel a few days before a friend's wedding in cape may. The staff were friendly and checkin check out was super easy. The deluxe room was a perfect size for four adults. The property is in a great location across from beach. We really liked the outdoor space at the Rusty Nail! I would recommend this property and I would stay here again.

Off season beach vacation
The price was right, even if the weather didn't totally cooperate (off-shore low created by the hurricane made it blustery & cool which we weren't expecting in early October). But that gave the surfers some good waves and that plus the red sunsets through the clouds gave me lots of great photos. Wish the Rusty Nail would have had music a little later in the evening. And the parking lot could really use some lights at night. Otherwise a good deal and close to everything.

After 18 years since visiting Cape May, I was surprised how much I adored this place, thinking I really should be returning to one of the Victorians. Couldn't have been more wrong! The location was perfect, the room well appointed, and the staff was so very welcoming, gracious and accommodating. My family and I already have hopes to return in September 2016.
