Stayed at the beach shack,after it was to have been renovated,I guess they missed the room I was in,the carpet was dirty,never walked in my bare feet, The view was great,but for the price of the room,not worth it. Would not recommend to a friend.

The property itself is nice..Rusty Nail, Fire Pit, Music...but the room was so bad! As soon as we walked through the door the "mildew" smell was over whelming! The furniture was gross, the bathroom was so small you felt like you were on a ship! the drawers in the bathroom and bedroom didn't open (warped) there was NO phone, NO alarm clock in the bedroom. Set up was weird, there was a sink in the bedroom. Towels were rough, bedding was okay if you overlooked the dead mosquito on the duvet. In the morning my husband killed a huge thousand legger bug in the bedroom and I saw a smaller one run behind the mirror!! by the sink! COULDN'T GET OUT OF HERE FAST ENOUGH! This was the WORST $200+ dollars we EVER spent on 1 night. They should be ASHAMED of themselves to charge this much for a room!! Front desk was helpful in finding us other accommodations at their other property the Sand Piper.

Stayed at the Beach Shack in Cape May with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson for a 3 day weekend in Bungalow One which is a 3 bedroom suite. The location was wonderful, and the adjoining restaurant (The Rusty nail) was very good. Great ambience outside with a firepit...very relaxing!!
As previous reviewers have said the linens were top rated, but the atmosphere of luxury certainly ended there. The carpeting was old and stained, there was a QUICK paint job done but very sloppily, tiles missing on the bathroom floor, a very discolored yellow tub...in general, nothing you would expect for the rates charged! I have stayed at the Sandpiper..a few doors away...and La Mer..a few blocks away.... in both places the rooms were much nicer!! Hopefully Cape Resorts will renovate the place soon before all the negative reviews have an impact. They have a great location, right across from the beach, but there is too much competition to rely on that!!!

We were going to Cape May for a quick beach weekend and I was reluctant to book after reading the reviews. Yes, it is an updated old motel as expected but the rooms were nice, no musty odor at all. The air conditioning was strong and the linens were nice and plentiful. We were close to the music and the fire pit on the first floor- and once we closed the door, we couldn't hear anything. The proximity to the beach and the chair and umbrella service are definitely reasons why we would return!

I have stayed at many of the hotels, B&Bs in Cape May over the years so when I booked my reservation at Beach Shack and read the reviews on TripAdvisor.com I was a bit nervous but once I checked in all my worries were gone. We booked a family shack ( its actually a one bedroom efficiency with a living room, microwave, fridge, coffee maker) which faced the beach ( Room 311) on the top floor and our room was fantastic. They have seating outside on the shared balcony so you can enjoy the sunset, beach or a bit of fresh air. It was clean and comfortable. The bedroom was not huge but it served its purpose. The sitting area was cozy with a nice couch and TV. Our room was spotless and we had a TV in both the living room and bedroom which was excellent for our different TV viewing schedules. Included in our stay was complimentary beach chairs, towels and umbrellas. The staff on the beach were great and every am they were there ready to set up our spot on the sand. The front desk staff were pleasant ,polite and accommodating. Our room was not ready upon check in but we were called shortly after so it worked out well. The Rusty Nail is quite convenient for a bite to eat or drink. They have a great fire pit along with live music for all to enjoy. The bar was packed on the wknd.
We give Beach Shack an A++++.

Room Tip: Room 311 was great. Top floor overlooking the beach and in the corner of the hotel.
