    there is a good restaurant on site, no continental breakfast, rooms do not have kitchenette, at least the one room we had didn't have those.

    I would say, its probably due to the fact that they did a huge renovation on the property, and of course they need to keep competitive to all the other properties in Cape May, especially since they are "beach front"
