The King's Cottage is in a great part of town and maintained well. The half block to the beach is a huge plus!
The fact they offer an outdoor shower (hot and cold), beach chairs, and towels makes this a recommended stay for me.
The innkeeper (Barbara) is very nice and accommodating as she does a great job of making her guests feel welcome.
Why will I not return? I play music and she doesn't want to hear the guitar on the front porch. CSNY, Buffett, Dylan, the Eagles, etc. It's an integral part of all of my vacations so it can be marked down as just a difference of opinion. She let me know in a nice enough way but it's a deal breaker for me.
Another reason is that a very good friend of ours was in the area and stopped by with her child (well behaved 6 year old girl). While Barbara didn't say anything at the time she did let me know a day later that the child's presence was unappreciated.
Again, these things should not dissuade the average b&b'er from King's Cottage - in fact, to some, they could prove to be an incentive. However, for me, I'll just have to find another place from now on.
I've stayed in several places in Cape May and this place is the only one that gave me grief. C'est la vie!
Upstairs rooms = small...middle floor is best.
