Older property looks better in pics and a little worn in person. Nice desk clerk, good housekeeping with average sized but clean fluffy towels in the bathroom, plentiful too w hairdryer. No counter space in bathroom that's easily remedied by using counter space in kitchenette where the under-the-counter-fridge in not turned on prior to your arrival but clean with washcloth... More

Traveled to Cape May for the Escape the Cape triathlon, and this room was a last minute find for us. The room we had was spacious, comfortable and clean. Kitchenette, though we didn't use it, was clean as well and practical. The women at the front desk both days was very nice. We asked for a late check out so... More

No working internet. They said it was out but it was never fixed during the two days we were there. No microwave. No coffee pot. No shampoo 1st night. Blinds didn't keep light out from outside lights which stayed on all night.

My wife and I traveled to Cape May for a getaway weekend. It was last minute and we were on a budget. The proprietor stayed awake for us until nearly 11. The room was small, but adequate. Recently updated bathroom fixtures, nice toiletries. Fridge in the room was a plus. Bed comfortable. Room felt a little stuffy, but fan/AC solved... More

We stayed here for an extra night for a weekend trip...we already had reservations for two nights in the town. It is a basic, clean motel and in a quiet location. We were in an efficiency that had a small fridge and stovetop. There was a coffee maker (but no coffee), and no hair dryer either. The bathroom seemed to... More

We picked this place for a last minute trip to get my Parents to the beach for the summer.

We have been here a number of times. They have started modernizing rooms which is nice. Great location good place in Cape May. Cheaper than being down near the water but within walking distance. One of our rooms was updated and the other was older but clean and nice.
