A lovely motel that combines an ideal location directly across the road from the beach, and a pool as a beach alternative. The rooms are well-equipped, clean and well-situated. The only downside I found with the stay was the absence of a strong wi-fi network. The personnel are pleasant and willing to provide tips and useful information for your stay. The motel is close to restaurants and a walk away from downtown. Its the third time we've been there and I'd gladly return.

Right across the street from the beach, great views of the ocean, friendly staff and clean. What more can you ask for? Well, the beds were not that comfortable but sleeping on vacation has never been my thing anyway. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here and I would stay there again next time I visit Cape May.

Our room was very nice (nicer than you'd expect from the outside of the Inn) but it was the attention we received from the proprietor and her son that stood out. My fiance fell on the concrete (long night at Cabana's), we went to a kids' baseball tournament for hours the next day and when we came back we took off the makeshift bandage to find large chunks of rock embedded in his hand which would explain the pain. I went to the front desk and asked the young woman where i might buy tweezers. At that time, a man came in behind me and went behind the counter. He asked what I needed and when I told him, he became concerned and told me he'd get me his "kit." I was afraid my fiance wouldn't allow me to try to dig out the stones but Jerry offered to come down and help, saying he's helped so many kids with huge splinters and similar injuries that it was no problem. He brought his kit and his mom, Claudia, showed up with more First Aid. Rather than worry about litigation, together they saved us a trip to the ER. Service like that is unheard of these days when you can't even get a waiter to give you a few aspirin for a headache. I'd asked for a new top sheet as there was blood all over it but they called someone and the whole bed was remade immediately with crisp white sheets.

Our room was a suite with a bedroom and separate living room/kitchen which opened out to the pool (which we didn't use - we were either out shopping/eating/drinking or at games). The room was well worth the price compared to other places on the water and perfect for two couples or a couple with children.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor that open out to a patio by the pool are perfect.

Just stayed last weekend and was pleasantly surprised. We arrived 2 hours prior to check in time and our room was available. Staff was courteous and friendly, I believe I was checking in by the owner. Pool was very clean and kids had a blast! Really liked the medium sized refrigerator in the room. We had it stocked up for the weekend. WiFi reception in room was very weak (#112)
