Agree with most other review Stayed here on weekend of the 5th of feb 05. We got a deal from Price line that saved only $20/nite over rate from hotel's site. $99.00. We already knew about the place and the location from previous day trips to cape may. It can't be beat for the location, within very short walking distance to anything and everything and great beach @ ocean view and vew of town from some rooms on west side. Best to remember this is a very OLD HISTORICAL building that was restore and some what updated ( moderized with air con. and heat. to make it a year around place) yet because of historic considerations it still had to keep a lot of it's original structure intact. It's a truely beautifull and impressive building, if historic stuff is your thing. They have the most comfortable beds and bedding you can imagin, we were really pleased( slept in till 1030). The bath was clean and big and functional. Room was bright and airy with tv vcr and all that other stuff I really don't need or want. The restaurant had pretty decent food but theirs pleanty of much better very near by if you want. It has a nice little bar and good music and comfortable sofas for hanging out and relaxing. The main drawback I had was the noise that you could hear from inside your room. Hall noise and other rooms. So I guess other people also got to enjoy our noises. We were very pleased with everything so much so that we will definately go back again but I think we would request another room. I looked up the rates for other times of the year and for the same room in a not (PEAK SEASON) they get $300/nite. I could not see paying that amount, it seems very over priced. As a side note it seem as if Fri. nite it was the gathering place for more than just a few of the area gay's to meet and hang. It didn't bother my wife and me but some people seemed a little put off by the crowd and left the bar area .
