“Great Beach Stay!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We've been to Cape May several times, and chose the Stockton Inns based on price, location, amenities and we weren't in the mood for a Bed and Breakfast. We made the perfect choice! Being right across the street from the beach was ideal, and it was nice to have the pool if we felt like doing that. There's nothing fancy here, but the room was spacious enough and very clean. There was a bit of a musty odor, but it's so close to the ocean sometimes that can't be helped. It was convenient to have a kitchenette, too. Our room was on the 2nd floor with a sundeck and lounge chairs right outside our door. We even saw dolphins playing in the ocean one night from the deck. Location is good, too - walking distance to pretty much anywhere in Cape May. We will definitely stay here again!

Love this property. It is situated right across from the beach and near the convention center, and small eateries. Makes it really convenient to go to the beach for the day and not have to return back to the hotel. The pool is nice, but I wish it was open later than til dusk? Internet is spotty. I can get onto it, but keep getting kicked off. Rooms are spacious and clean. Love the small sofa bed, which is convenient for kids. The ceiling fan is an added plus too.

Nothing fancy. Nothing elaborate. It is efficient and a wonderful location. It is clean and quiet. We were on the third floor in the motel side - not the old Victorian Inn. It was fine and the ceiling fan was a plus in my opinion. Also had a fridge and a microwave.

If you want fancy and upscale, it's the wrong place for you. If you're looking for clean, neat, and in a good spot for a reasonable price, this is it.

Oh and READ THIS: Most places in Cape May want CASH for their transactions. Most do not accept credit cards. Many restaurants do, but don't count on it. And if they do, many don't take American Express. Caveat emptor!

But appreciate the simpleness of the Stockton, enjoy walking across the street for the beach, and bring your MasterCard!

Room Tip: No need to pay extra for beach view. It's right there for all to enjoy.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Stockton Manor room 408 on July 13-17 2014. The hotel held great victorian charm and was very clean. Being a neat freak, I went over everything with my lysol and lysol wipes, and was very pleased to see how clean, dust free, and sanitary the room was. You can see the ocean from the room as well as the porch which was absolutely breathtaking. However, the biggest plus was that not only is the hotel beach front, but is also a short and comfortable walking distance to the shops, library, liquor store, Acme, and many quaint places to eat. We only had to move the car when we visited the zoo and wildwood boardwalk!

Room Tip: While an ocean view room is lovely, its not necessary because you can enjoy the view from the porch...

Great location for families - right across street from beach and arcade, next to mini golf location. food fun shopping all within walking distance. rooms were decent size, noticed lots of outlets for electronics charging! little things missing like hooks on back of bathroom door, no security locks on room door; pool was a decent size and well maintained. hotel front desk staff left a little to be desired, not very accommodating. Woman would not even let weary travelers (paying customers) use her office restroom as we checked in!! but overall a good experience.

I have loved Cape May, NJ for years with my parents. I than had my husband fall in love with it too! We came July 2013 for our 1st Family Vacation with our 2 year old. It was perfect for couples and now a family! Perfect location right across from the beach and still nice and quiet! Friendly and helpful staff, cleaning all the time, park in the lot and walk the rest of the time, if you want to stay in and cook you can or go out! Perfect and clean swimming pool. Always check out the deals and specials because The Stockton Inn is the only place that we will ever stay at in Cape May. Trust me I have looked and keep coming back to stay just here! I always get a feeling of being at home and never want to leave.

Room Tip: Make sure to spend sometime in the evening up on the sun deck. Beautiful and relaxing! Plus the view...
