Avondale by the sea is nicely located on Beach Ave and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants that make up the heart of Cape May. It has a great view of the ocean. There isd a nice pool if you don't care for the waves. A continental breakfast is included. My only complaints were that the wall mounted A/C unit was a bit noisy and the wifi internet was a bit flakey but Charlie (the owner) assured me the wifi was in the process of being fixed the next day and replaced soon after that. The staff was very friendly.

Room Tip: No elevator, but the best ocean views are from the second or third floors. First floor is street level but you won't have to deal with stairs.

I feel like we paid too much. Extra fees for weekends is understandable but the amount is not disclosed on their website. Continental breakfast was disappointing. No fruit or water. But if you like donuts or bagels then you'll be happy. Our room had a sofa bed, when I pulled it out the cover was filthy. So my child shared the king bed with us. The air conditioning did nothing to help with the humidity and kept us barely comfortable. The pool had a an old lady monitoring it who wasn't friendly. The outside shower to rinse off had no pressure so we carried a lot of sand in our room. The bathroom was very small and would not accommodate a large person. The location was the only thing we liked. Wouldn't recommend staying here to anyone.

Avondale is perfectly located to enjoy the architecture, shopping and ocean in Cape May. The room was large and comfortable, with tile floors throughout, so no damp musty odors or sand. All rooms had ocean views with the center section, where we were on the third floor, seeming to have the better view, but only from a small seating area right in the walkway. That and no elevators were the only real knock, and a minor issue at best.

The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The included breakfast was a bit limited, but better than nothing.

IWhen checking out, we realized that we lost one of our keys ( old school key on a large metal tag), so we were told there would be a 20 dollar charge. That seemed reasonable to us, but we were pleasantly surprised to get an e-mail about a week later that the key was found by the pool and the charge had been removed from our card. I'm sure there are some places that would have just taken the money and not said anything, so I was pleased with the honesty.

This was the first time we ever stayed in Cape May and we will return to Avondale by the Sea. The location was perfect - walking distance to the restaurant and shopping area and the ocean view from the third floor balcony was amazing. The staff was friendly and the room was immaculate.

Room Tip: Get a third floor room for the best ocean view.

An older and typical shore property with a great location on the Cape May beach. A central location within walking distance of many restaurants and the shopping mall. The facility is older but well kept. Recently installed tile flooring is a negative but improved TV and Internet are positives. Three floors but no elevator, outside access for all rooms. Housekeeping staff does a great job.

Room Tip: Lower number rooms have best view; room layouts vary, we prefer the two beds away from the wall a/c unit.
