“Great place for a Cape May vacation”
Reviewed 11 September 2010

I stayed in one of the townhomes with my wife, three year old child, my retired parents, and my adult sister for a beach vacation/family reunion. The Capri was exactly what we expected -- clean, very close to the beach, nice pool for small children. The rooms were large, especially the master suite, which also included a large walk-in closet that we used as our daughter's bedroom. One unanticipated bonus is that there is a free trolley that stops in front of the motel and takes people to the shopping area -- that really helped my parents get around. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Stayed August 2010, travelled with family

Stayed with my husband and 20 & 16 year old children for 2 nights in an efficiency 1 bedroom 2 bath with a full kitchen and pull out couch in the living room. The rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with enough dishes,etc. for cooking although we ate out every meal. This hotel is very convenient to beach as there is beach access directly across the street. If you have not been to NJ beaches, you need to buy a tag - it was $10 per person for 3 days- and they have openings to the beach every few blocks. The pool is small and only goes to about 4 feet. My son, who normally loves being in a pool, swam in it for about 10 minutes before becoming bored. If you have small children it would be perfect.

The hotel is in walking distance to the shopping and restaurant area where there are horse drawn carriages, quaint houses, and other attractions.

What was excellent about this motel was that before your check in and after your checkout you can use a first floor shower and toilet as well as stay parked in their parking lot. This was a huge plus for us as we used these facilities and parked before and after our stay.

The owners, two sisters, were very pleasant and welcoming as was the pool and staff help we encountered.

The rooms were a bit costly, however given that it was high season directly on the beach the cost was totally in line, in fact a bit less, than other Cape May hotels I checked out. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely stay here again.

The whole family came to Cape May for a wedding. I booked this hotel by looking at pictures on the web. All of the pictues were totally accurate. The hotel was immaculately clean. The rooms were spacious and the view was incredible. I will recommend this hotel to anyone going to Cape May.

This is an all around nice place to stay with a family with children. The efficiency suites are nice, clean and comfortable. There is a pool and other recreation. It is right across from the beach and very close to stores. They have a popcorn machine and make popcorn every day at noon which my son loved.

Our family of 10 just returned from 3 nights at the Capri. From the first moments of our arrivla to the final moments of our stay, our time at the Capri was a real pleasure. From the pleasant [ can not do enough for you ] staff, to the free popcorn and fruit to the nice pool, shuffleboard and ping pong, and super close proximity to the beach, the Capri exceeded our expectations.

We had three rooms - two were the newer suites one was the older efficiency. All were clean and more than comfortable.

We recomend the Capri to anyone looking for a nice, reasonably priced, family friendly Cape May Motel.

I have spent time in Cape May Point every summer since I was born. I had never stayed in a hotel/motel as we have always stayed in our family cottage. This year my husband and I stayed at the Capri Motor Lodge for one night before going to the Point. We weren't expecting much based on what we saw online, but we were very happy with our stay. The view was beautiful. The room was small but very clean and had a convenient kitchen area. The two women at the desk were very courteous and friendly. I am used to the beach smells so had no problem with the "beachy" smell of the room that other reviews have mentioned. Easy walk to the beach, boardwalk and outdoor mall. Very quaint..would return again.

We booked a suite. This,overall,was a very nice place to stay. the kitchen was well equiped, and the rooms were spacious. The housekeeping staff were excellent.. It was located very close to the ocean, and along the "main drag". The price was reasonable. It was a very enjoyable stay.
