The friendly and helpful people at the heritage motor inn makes our visit like staying with good friends! Add that to the great location and nice rooms and you cannot ask for more. Every year we go back for about 20 years now, we still love everything about the heritage motor inn. And you will too.

We have been coming to Cape May for 34 years and have stayed in many different motels and the Heritage Inn was a wonderful vacation spot. Centrally located in the heart of town and directly across the street from the beach, we walked to almost every restaurant or store that we needed to go to. Our room was on the... More

Right from check in to leaving 10 days later we had terrific service. Clean room, bed linen changed every day, super kitchenette in room so we could prepare own food as Cape May is generally an expensive place to eat out nad finally super views from the top of the building overlooking the beach.

We just came back from a very nice visit to Cape May. We normally stay at a different hotel, but decided to try The Heritage Inn this time, as our regular hotel was booked. Mike at the front desk was extremely nice and pleasant. We had a nice room on the 3rd floor, room 22, nice view of the ocean,... More

This hotel has a great location, right across the road from the beach. The beds had older mattresses and no hand towels were present. They was no ice machine and our refrigerator freezer never froze water! Plan to walk around the block for parking. There are only five slots near the pool. There is no elevator, so if you cant...

Gwen Finley and her husband are wonderful people who own and operate this inn. We only go to Cape May, New Jersey once a year for about (5) days usually the week after Labor Day which is the absolute "best" time - it's cool and crisp, yet warm enough to take a swim in their lovely pool which is actually...
