Just returned from a very very hot hot trip to the Cape May beach. 3 nights, family of 4 - 2 boys 5 & 11yo. We have previously stayed 3x before at Colton Court, 2 blocks from Mt. Vernon. The look of the places are very similar - the staff at Mt. Vernon was much more pleasant. Mt Vernon is older motel. Rooms are adequate, decor is very outdated, clean-small bath, clean linens, very skimpy but clean towels. Pool was clean but only open from 10-5:30. I know Cape May well and didn't explect much more for the high prices which you will find everywhere. Its the location. You can park your car at Mt. Vernon and not have to get back in until you leave. Shopping, restaurants, skeeball all within walking distance. The Beach is right across the street. If you want a view, request the second floor. I suspect we will return next year - although I will keep looking for more luxurious accomidations within our budget. The kids wear us out during the day, so nicer rooms to relax in would be swell. I don't have any pictures, but the web site photos match reality.
Restaurant suggestion: If your looking for something a little different we suggest you try a byob Island Grill behind the Washington Street Mall, next to Greens liquour. EXCELLENT! Very very clean, attentive staff, kids menu, interesting menu - horrible view (unkept back entrances tomall stores), but that is the only negative we can drum up.
