“Wonderful - like no other...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2004

I have been going to the Macomber for years....truly a "piece of heaven" for me and my family. Have always found the staff more than courteous and the rooms clean and bright. There is nothing better than sitting on the beautiful, wrap-around porch either early morning watching the sun rise or later in the evening watching "the world go by"! I believe that the Macomber is the "heart...in the heart of Cape May"! Cute, quaint and totally charming with all the best that the Jersey shore has to offer ....all within steps of the majestic Macomber. WOULD NEVER THINK OF GOING ELSEWHERE IN CAPE MAY. Thank you for being there and being a part of our family!!

Stayed at the Hotel Macomber for two nights. awoke 1st morning at 6:30 a.m. to the sounds of trash cans being washed with hose. bathroom very small and could use a good overhaul. hot and cold faucets were opposite in shower. our daughters room did not even have a curtian on bathroom window.
I felt they could have at least provided some
morning coffe in the lobby. We wanted to express
our concerns when we checked out, but never
did find anybody at the front desk when we left at 9:15 a.m. Next time I'll stay elsewhere

When ever we went to Hotel Macomber it was almost like home. Everyone was so nice and friendly. One time about 5 years ago there was a women that took care of my son at night who spoke French, my son still talks about how great this women was. The place is always clean and in good shape. I never spoke to anyone there who wasn't very friendly. When we go it always feels like a home away from home. Can not understand why anyone could say anything bad about the place.

We love it here, have stayed many times, will stay many more. When I read the bad review, my first thought was maybe the reviewer had the wrong place.

The Macomber we know has brand new carpeting, outstanding ocean breezes, and the most accomodating staff we've had the pleasure to deal with..always treated like family...oh well, you can't please everyone, I guess, we look forward to our next visit to this great place!!
