Lots of choices of hotels Cape May but two things define most of them: small box rooms and ridiculously high rates. If you look closely at the ones that line the shore road you'll see they are really tacky motels disguised with nice balconies. Cape Harbor is a time warp exception.Five minutes from the beach, been there since 1947, this...

Reviewed 17 June 2016

We were really surprised at such a quaint place. A small friendly motel away from the boardwalk but just a short drive. We had a second floor unit that overlooked the pool. Quiet area, but they do offer a small play area for the kids and a grill if you want to cook out.

What a great find! Close to everything in Cape May, yet the price was unbeatable. Mary in the office was very helpful and kind. Rooms were clean, and for sitting right next to the road, surprisingly quiet. Will stay there again, for sure! Only concern is "cancellation policy" but, it is what it is :-)

The rooms were very clean and the manager was very nice and friendly, but the air conditioner was so loud it woke us up when it cycles on and the bed was hard. If these two issues were fixed we'd give this place a 4 or 5.

Found a Saturday night room available here just two days in advance, which is tough to do during Cape May's high season, when rooms go months in advance and a 2-night stay is often required. No frills, but clean, firm bed, AC when you need it, and very friendly service (thanks Mary!). Also sparkling clean pool, which we really appreciated...

Went to Cape May for our sons graduation from the USCG training center. Cape Harbor Motor Inn was very clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly. Would stay there again and would highly recommend it for anyone going there for a family member graduation. It is less than a mile from USCG training center. Very close to downtown...

Enjoyed our midweek four night stay. Nice accommodations, handy to Cape May beach and other attractions, a short drive. Clean room and firm bed. Chairs and small table on the second floor walkway, and friendly common yellowthroat frequented small tree in front of us. Inexpensive, basic place to stay. Well-maintained. A find if you want an economical stay. Blocks away...

We needed a room for a few nights to attend the US Coast Guard. basic training graduation. The Cape Harbor was literally right around the corner and a fraction of the price charged by all the other places nearby. The beach was a 2 minute ride down Pittsburgh ave. The room was spotless and checking in was quick and easy....

We were here with a group of Scuba Divers. The location was perfect for a trip to the marina every morning. The rooms were clean, with refrigerator and large counter space. Bathroom was clean and adequate. The pool was clean, with outside shower and bathroom facilities near by. The staff was great. There are two barbeque grills in back with...

“We had a room on the ground floor. It was very quiet.”
 of 5 bubbles U6870YNelizabethp, 11 Jul 2016 | Read review
“We liked the second floor, room 205. That side would be quieter as it is away from the pool, when it is open.”

“Get the efficiency with the sitting room. Gives you extra space.”

“Choose the efficiencies overlooking the pool. We visited after Labor Day, so there were no families with screaming kids, but there is a wing of the motel for adults only. The rooms there are single rooms with no private balcony and no pool view, but likely quieter in high season.”
