This is my first experience with this type of stay. I'm usually a condo, cabin or motel type of person but, since it was for only one night, I wanted to try this. It certainly is different. First, I'm not used to the friendliness every time you go through the lobby. It was so sweet! Second, I'm also not used to having someone come to the elevator and operate it. I could just imagine how that felt 100 years ago. We went, two couples, each in our own rooms. Hubby and I prefer king beds; our friends, queen. The place was clean, VERY OLD and clean! Don't know where their A/C is 'cause we didn't see it. We also didn't need it. It was early in the season and the ocean breezes were beautiful. We really appreciated having a private parking lot as parking in Cape May can be a horror. We did some touring around the area but, spent most of our time shopping on Washington Street, sitting on the beach or just kicking back at the bar. When we considered having dinner, we thought that we would take a chance and go to the restaurant downstairs. What a wonderful idea! The meal was perfect and we just loved the extreme convenience of this place. Aside from our trips to the lighthouse, Sunset Beach and Wildwood, we walked to everything else and loved it!
