This was to be our first time in Cape May, having tired of the crowds of Rehoboth beach of recent years. We thought we were taking a big chance because of a disaster 6 years ago at the Grand Hotel in Wildwood Crest just to the North (everything, including the weather went wrong...especially the hotel).
The Montreal Inn lived up to it's own billing. The place is located across from the spectacular beach (cleaned and combed by tractor every night) of Cape May. It's within walking distance of all the sights, the churches and the shopping area: a pedestrian mall with wonderful restaurants, shops, benches, visitor information booths, park with gazebo and live, free entertainment, dinner theater (Elaine's). Bike racks are everywhere (bring your own bikes or rent them there). The local history is explained by many articulate and lucid docents who provide free or inexpensive tours of the cottages and the lore. The streets are lined with beautifully kept cottages built during the 18th century. It's like taking a trip back in time. The beach walk may be taken along the sand or the paved walkway atop the sea wall. The only time we drove the car was to enjoy a nice par three (75-150 yard) golf course in nearby Rio Grande (exit 4 off GSP).
The hotel itself was always clean with friendly staff buzzing throug all the rooms daily, maintaining clean linens, towels and carpets. The rooms are attractive and have clear views of the ocean acros the street. The adjoining restaurant was our favorite stop for Breakfast. It also has lunch, happy hour and entertainment early evenings. The pool is popular with the kids and is clean and the kind you'd like to have in your own back yard. Outdoor furniture is solid, clean and comfortable. 2 outdoor decks (2nd floor and 4th) are perfect for delivered meals or just hanging out and taking in the views. Each room also has it's own balcony ,chairs and tables with sliding doors providing access. I've already booked for next year. If you wait you won't get a room
Enjoy your stay!
