Other than the relative affordability of their room rates and the excellent beachfront location, the Grand Hotel is a very average hotel. Service was OK but that's to be expected given the room rates. No issues with the cleanliness of the hotel but it seemed that there were a number of rooms that were in the process of being repaired/ upgraded so there was always a bevy of maintenance folks about. Downside is there is no room service but the abundance of eating places around the hotel made up for that. Sleep quality was average - we had a two bedroom efficiency room that supposedly sleeps 6. There were four of us and the second bed is really a sofa bed which wasn't too bad. The hotel however does have a very nice indoor pool. Another downside is that with the inhouse restaurant, you do not have the ability to add the cost of meals to your hotel bill, even for breakfast. In fact, for the buffet breakfast, you actually pay at the register before even being seated which seems quite unusual - particulalry if you tip based on the service you receive at the restaurant...despite all of this, we would likely stay at this hotel again on future trips to Cape May as the room rates are probably very competitive in the area for hotels of a similar class and at the end of the day, the room is just for sleeping! I would recommend this hotel for couples with young kids looking for an affordable getaway to Cape May as a family vacation.
