....I gave this place a shot after seeing a steller review on here, but I was a bit disappointed. If anyone's ever been to Cape May and seeing the beautiful reconstruction of Congress Hall Hotel, you might understand a bit better. I get that this place is old, that's fine. But the room we were initially checked into was small, run down, smelled of mold and had soot from carpenter ants under the windowpanes, not to mention someone's dirty socks left on the floor and a less-than-desireable stall shower and 90 degrees in the room and hall as they don't run the A/C when no guests are there. Not exactly what I want to pay $129 a night for. After mentioning to the front desk, we were moved to a much nicer third floor room. Much cleaner, much more updated and no mold smell, but still a balmy 90 degrees until the A/C kicked in. We never found the coffee and muffins the first morning that were mentioned, but we did see them the day we were checking out. Checkout is leave your keys behind the front desk because there was no-one manning the desk. I'm not a fan of having to write a less-than-stellar review but in this case I feel I needed to. People should have an understanding of what something really is when traveling. While I slept better in our newer room, this wasn't exactly my idea of what it seemed like online.
