May Caper Guest House
Reviewed 23 August 2006

We stayed at the May Caper on Saturday, August 12, in a room with a double bed, two twin beds, a balcony overlooking the ocean, and a shared bathroom. We came upon this the same day, as we were scouring Cape May for a one-night vacancy on a perfect summer Saturday. The Cape May Lodging Association and Cape May County Chamber of Commerce were both reporting that the town was sold out, so we felt lucky to find a place to sleep for the night. The fact that the May Caper was located right on Beach Avenue and that we got a room (with an oceanfront balcony) for just $120 on such a Saturday were highly unexpected bonuses. The May Caper's backyard parking spots are a huge advantage (although it is quite buggy, of course, particularly at night). Our hosts were all very pleasant throughout our brief stay.
With that said, this isn't necessarily the sort of place we would stay in other situations. We generally avoid accommodations with a shared bathroom (although we did not, at any point, have any trouble with access to the bathroom when necessary), and the rooms were certainly not luxurious. The window treatments did not do much in terms of keeping light out in the morning, and the bed was quite rickety. We think our room would have been a nice set up for a family with kids on a budget, given the twin beds.
Anyway, we were very happy with our stay at the May Caper, given our situation, the price, the location, and the parking.
