“Perfect spur of the moment get a way! ”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Clean...affordable. ...friendly staff.....and dog friendly. My husband and I didn't have any plans or a place to stay and found MABC at the last minute on Memorial Day weekend. It was the perfect place to get away with our two dogs. Pool was super and beach was only a five minute walk away. Loved it. Thanks Mariah!

Spent a long weekend in Cape May during off-season & decided to give the MABC a try, being familiar with the area & knowing that it is a little far from the center of town - not a problem for us. Turned out to be a rainy weekend (an understatement) - which made the fact that the room was nice & had WiFi all the better. We made use of the literature in the office & the girl in the office was extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat that were open nearby. I was originally concerned about the pets (I love them but currently don't have any) but the rooms didn't smell like 'wet dog' and there was no barking/meowing/tweeting late at night. Even though the weather was atrocious, the office manager actually let us use the outdoor hot tub while the cold rain was falling - a great way to 'laugh at the rain'!

Below are the pros/cons (taking into account that in Southern NJ you can't expect to get a spacious 5-star hotel):

Pro:

- Price was reasonable
- Room was clean and fairly modern
- Staff was friendly & helpful
- Free WiFi
- Available washer/dryer
- Available soda machine
- Nice outdoor pool & hot tub
- Quiet Location

Con:

- May be a little far away from the action for some
- No breakfast if you're looking for that
- Will have to walk a few blocks to the beach

With this property, the pros definitely outweigh the cons, & I was extremely satisfied with our stay - I'd have no qualms about staying here again!

It was my family first weekend around Cape May. Madison Avenue Motel Club was a convenient accommodation. Located 6 small blocks away from the beach. It's also a pet friendly place. So request no-pet area if u like to be a away from pets. The rooms looked new and clean. However, the bed mattress need to be improved. Comfortable, firm mattress would be the priority investment in any hotel. Also, parking is limited, so I suggest to park your car and explore the island by walking. Mostly all accommodations offered in Cape May are Bed and Breakfast, Motels and small hotels. Plenty front-beach places are close before Memorial weekend. Cape May is a great destination to visit. We will be back.

I am very happy I found this motel at a good off season rate. We were going to beautiful Cape May to do 3 days of bird watching. Heather greeted us and was very helpful with recommending a restaurant for dinner which turned out to be very good. Our room was clean and quiet with a comfortable queen bed on the first floor. The efficiency kitchen was equipped with microwave, coffee maker, coffee, utensils, drinking glasses, wine glasses and a nice set of dishes. No stove - I was not planning on cooking. Nice size bathroom with walk in shower. Was chilly one night and we had to turn on the heat. Will stay here again in the future and recommend it to others.

We stayed at this reasonably priced hotel to do bird watching in beautiful Cape May. We got a great off season rate and enjoyed two comfortable nights in this hotel.

We knew we would have a great stay as soon as we walked into the small reception greeted with a welcoming smile by Heather. She quickly checked us in. A couple of extra things that they did that made this motel extra special: Movie CD's and a lending library, gummy bunnies, REAL keys, large outdoor dinning area and a grill, great off season specials and a pleasant attitude.

Our efficient suite was on the second floor. The clean, quiet room and comfortable double beds made for a great nights sleep. A flat screen TV was available, but we were so tired we did not watch it. The room had all the amenities one needs for a wonderful weekend. Efficiency kitchen was equipped with a coffee make, coffee, pots, pans dishes, utensils and everything but the food I needed to prepare a meal. I especially love ceiling fans and windows that open. This motel had both as will as heat and air-conditioning. The bathroom was spacious and very clean. I loved the large walk in tiled shower. The "Beach Mist: toiletries were pleasant but bring your hair conditioner. Complimentary Wi-Fi and parking are standard.

The shared porch was a lovely place to sip wine in the evening. There is an out door pool for the warmer seasons. The beach was walking distance but we needed to drive to shops. Oh, and this motel is pet friendly so bring your best friends, just follow the strict Cape May rules about leashes and pets on the beach.

I would recommend this hotel and look forward to my next off visit.

Room Tip: If mobility is an issue reserve a room on the first floor.

The motel room was fine and being that they were pet friendly was plus. It had a full kitchen and washer/dryer in the suite which helped out a lot. The suites are small in size but we had a family of 5 plus a dog. Only complaints are it was very loud at night since the adjoining wall was thin. I could hear everything my neighbors were talking about and their dogs barked most of the night. The shower wster was also lukewarm which sucked sine it was December. The front desk lady wss very friendly and helpful with extra blankets. Location is blocks away from center of town and beach but cape may Iis so nice to walk around it did not matter.

We stayed the weekend between Christmas and New Years', and the timing couldn't have been better. The Hotel is about 3-4 blocks from Downtown Cape May, surrounded by B&B's and little inns. Our room was an efficiency, which was perfect as we only planned to eat and sleep at the room. In the efficiency, you may need to bring in the table from outside to have a good place to eat. But the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was nice, and the kitchen had a good sized sink, microwave and fridge. The room looked new and was nice and clean. Enjoy a weekend in a very nice little spot.
