Fabulous rooms, great location in the middle of town with beach views, wonderful, knowledgeable staff. Staff was like our own private concierge, what to see, where to shop, and what restaurants are the best. They even knew where the best happy hours are! Can't express what a great time my husband and I had!!! Can't wait to come back this summer and take a dip in the pool!

We have stayed here in years past because it is one of the cheaper places in Cape May that is fairly updated, and the location is perfect - right in the middle of town. There are few amenties. No iron, shampoo, etc. The pool is not much bigger than a bathtub and very uncomfortable chairs. Again, we usually stay for a cheap place conveniently located.
This past time was over a holiday weekend. They lost our reservation, and we spent 3 hours driving around trying to find another place to stay. They were not apologetic and offered nothing to make up for this. They were supposed to call back in a half our to let us know what they could do for us. We received no call. Will never go back.

BlueDallas, Manager at Heritage Inn, responded to this reviewResponded 22 October 2010

I apologize but I am confused as to how this review could be written when the customer clearly states that they did not stay at the Heritage Inn. According to the customer we did not have a reservation for them, therefore they did not stay at the Heritage and would not know if we had comfortable chairs, amenities etc... Also, if they are remembering the Heritage from years past as they stated, I would welcome them to visit us in the present as the Heritage has undergone a major renovation recently with the addition of a new 3rd floor and sundeck.

We come back here every year -- and with good reason. It's friendly, cozy and it has the absolute best location in all of Cape May. The staff have always gone out of their way to be kind to my family and friends. The rooms are sweet, and the pool is the most kid-friendly pool you can find.
This is our first choice for Cape May fun and memories. Love it!

No clock in the room and forget about a wake-up call, because there were no phones in the room. I should have brought a rooster. The WiFi connection in our rooms were poor. Went downstairs to the front desk office where the connection was better, and we were given a hard time by the clerk (WEASEL), who finally relented and let us use his office for five minutes. Sub-optimal parking availability. Will not be back.

This is the second time we stayed at the Heritage Inn at Cape May, NJ (6/2010 and 9/2010). The location is perfect for us. It is located right on Beach Ave at Stockton St. This is directly across from the 'promenade' area by McGlades Restaurant. (Good food!). This location allows you to walk to most of the Cape May shops and restaurants. The rooms are clean and well maintained. We stayed in a third floor Deluxe King room. There is also a 'crows nest' sun deck area on the roof to hang out at and enjoy the ocean views. Free WiFi allows you to check out the great local restaurant menus before you choose where to eat. There is a small pool there, but we opted for the large ocean across the street. Parking is limited in the front of the Inn, but there is another lot located just behind the Inn. We met Gwen (owner/VP), who is helpful and knowledgeable about the Cape May area. Our room had a small color TV with cable that we didn't even use. There was a small refrigerator in the room which was a plus. The Heritage Inn was perfect for our needs.

Just returned from a great five days in Cape May. I recommend the Heritage Inn highly if you want a CLEAN, convenient place to stay. Who could ask for more? Close to great restaurants, across the street from the beach, ocean view, and a ten minute delightful walk to Washington Mall. You don't even need a car! Staff is friendly and helpful. Can't wait to return.

My wife and I have stayed at expensive B&B's and we have found The Heritage Inn to be a very conveniently placed, neat, clean room for a reasonable rate. It's as close to staying on the beach as you can get in NJ (across the street), and is within walking distance to all the main attractions, restaurants and shopping, which is very important in Cape May which is not parking friendly.
