This review is hard for me. I loved the people who work at this place: extremely friendly and helpful. Thanks to them I would like to give it a better review than it deserves, but I can't. The hotel is very clean and across the street from the beach. These are the positives. But it is a cheap MOTEL in...

Clean rooms and a fair price. Tough to beat for a 30 second walk from the beach! Continental breakfast will save you time and money. The pool is a very nice change of pace from the sand. Say hello to Barbie!

We planned to stay here for 4 nights but we had such a great time, we stayed an additional night. Check in was one of the smoothest, most efficient we have ever experienced, less than 5 minutes. Our room was updated and immaculate. Air conditioner worked well, bed was comfortable. They are connected via an outside walkway to the Inn...

Was so delighted that we were able to book in this motel few days before! Was in Cape May last year but our motel was 5 blocks away. Thankfully there was availability in this location because of last minute plans! First, the manager called to confirm our booking online and informed us that the only available room is on 3rd...

We visited for a week in early August 2016 (Room 216, then moved to room 215). Everyone here was so nice to us, they made us feel like family. Especially all of the front desk staff, Barbie at the pool who was so friendly and helpful to all of the guests - always smiling and a pleasure to be around,...

Perfect location to everything in cape may. Walking distance to everywhere. Laundry on each floor, but No elevator for luggage/chairs etc. spacious room, but needs a little updating. Right across the street from the beach and restaurants.
