I have stayed at Summer Station many times and can't say enough good things about it. The location is great, across from the beach and you can walk to anywhere in town. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. The pool is well maintained and always clean. It is well worth the money.

I accidentally discovered the Summer Station Hotel when my family and I decided to extend our Cape May vacation through the 4th of July weekend. I was staying in a different hotel but could not extend my stay there because nothing was avaiable. In fact, I could not get a reservation anywhere else either because it was one of the...

I booked a room at the Summer Station after I couldn't get a room at another place we had stayed..I was very happy with my decision. The location was perfect. We walked everywhere. The room was very nice and just big enough for my husband, myself and our 3yr old. I do agree with others that said the carpets were...

I used to absolutely love this place and looked forward to staying here each summer with my wife and child. The location is great and the units were updated several years ago. Sadly, after many years of coming to Cape May and staying at Summer Station we will have to take our business elsewhere. Based on the reviews I have...

I cannot believe how dirty the carpets were. So dirty that we had to throw out 2 pairs of socks because they were black. Those carpets really need to be shampooed. I had my two little kids with me and didn't even want them playing on the floor. The bathroom was clean, but the shower head looked like it was...

Summer Station has everything you need for a nice family vacation; from beautiful ocean views to fun poolside rooms. I have been visiting Cape May for about 15 years and believe Summer Station to be our ideal vacation destination. They are centrally located between the Cove and the Mall with the best beach right acroos the street. Walking distance to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A tradition of luxury and elegance has been found in Cape May since before the turn of the century, and now Summer Station is part of that tradition. With an imposing facade that blends with the stately Victorian homes, and accommodations that offer a gracious vacation lifestyle. The inviting sandy beach is just steps from your door; or you may prefer the sparkling water of our pool with surrounding sundeck. ... more   less
