Just got back from an anniversary weekend, March 30-April 1, 2012. Our Summer Station condo was spacious, immaculate, well-appointed, and comfortable, even the bed. We had a side-view E-suite. The view from the front of our unit was mediocre, and the view from the adorable porch was non-existent, but it was ickky weather so it didn't matter. There is ample parking under the building which kept our bike, which was on the car, dry.

One thing I was not crazy about was the location. It is within walking distance to some of central Cape May, but it's still a bit of a hike to the Acme or many restaurants. It won't be a problem if you want to drive. Also, it is a bit expensive, especially in the summer, when rooms go for over $300/night (not a problem for us in the low season - we paid $155).

A few things are NOT included, since these are condos, not hotel rooms. Don't forget to bring shampoo and soap, dishwashing detergent, coffee, tea and sugar. Dishes, cooking utensils, paper towels, coffeemaker, bathroom towels, toilet paper, hair dryer and housekeeping are included.

So, overall, if I had the money to spend, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: The higher the room, the better the view. Fourth floor is the highest.

we enjoy a winter retreat to the beach each year. we especially enjoy the hospitality of the staff at Summer Station. The units are clean, have the essentials and we can just chill out. It is conveniently located on the beach and a quick 10 minute walk to the mall. would highly recommend top floor facing the ocean.

My husband and I had a 4-day weekend and wanted oceanfront accommodations. We rented the G Pool front suite, which also was beachfront. It was an 1,100 sq. foot unit and had a large deck. The room was listed as 1 bedroom with a queen bed and 1 den with a queen bed. To me, they were both bedrooms, except the den did not have a door on it. This would be good if you were traveling with children, but not with another couple. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Free internet was also a plus. I wished it were a little closer to the unique shops that were about 1/2 mile away. The kitchen was fully stocked with glasses, cups, dishes and pots and pans. The washer and dryer was an added plus as we washed our clothes before we left. The unit was clean and the maids replenished towels and dishwashing soap every day. There were a couple of negatives - the bed and linens could have been better. The decor was dated, and I could have done without the aging plastic plants that are dust catchers. All in all our stay was very pleasant and I would stay again.

Summer Station is the only condo I would ever rent in Cape May! Their units are clean, modern and very well kept. They're also much bigger than the others, with private bedrooms, big living rooms, balconies and full-size kitchens with granite counter tops. They do everything first-class and that attention to detail makes a big difference.

The mnager, Tim, has left since our last visit and he will be greatly missed by my family and me. He replacement seems to be equally as good and concerned with the satisfaction of guests, which is wonderful, but Tim had become like a member of the family over the years. That's the way it is at Summer Station, like one big family with Uncle Gary, the head of Maintence and Aunt Chris, the head of Housekeeping. Besides the great units, the people are the reason I return over and over and will continue to return.
