At this point I have lost count of the stays at this fine hotel. The service is great and never a booking problem. They offer many specials from time to time so watch their website for them or subscribe to email notifications. Having a first class dining facility in the hotel (Hemingway's) makes it very easy to dine when the...

Reserved a wheelchair accessible room with a roll-in-shower, no problem. After taking our stuff up to the room, we realized that there was no shower seat. Went back to the lobby to request a shower seat and was told, "we don't provide those, you will have to rent one from an outfit in Wildwood (about 10 to 15 minutes up...

The "GRAND" Hotel is aptly named for its size... 175 Rooms on the ocean. But don't confuse it for BEING a grand hotel. It is not. It is a place to stay with a lot of outdated rooms desperately in need of upgrading. Most people today have one, two or three electronic devices that need to be plugged in at...

Took a mini vacation to Cape May, New Jersey. The area was quite beautiful but the hotel that we stayed in left a lot to be desired. Perhaps their tourist season Hadn't begun yet. The rooms were average in cleanliness. The towels in the bathroom were very thin and rough when used for a shower. Needed two per guest to...

My husband & I stayed here for a long weekend on April 24 to 28th 2015. Our friend's daughter got married on the beach, so we made a little vacation out of it. The hotel is super clean and our room was great!

We always stay here in duplex efficiency so I don't know what the other rooms are like. View of the ocean while sipping morning coffee on the outdoor balcony. How great is that? Love it. The indoor pool, especially when traveling with children, is a lifesaver on those chilly or rainy days. Restaurant downstairs, with so many others close by,...

This is our second visit to this hotel. Cape May is a beautiful little town. I think there is a new manager or something because the hotel definitely looks awesome. Our room was clean and pretty. The kitchenette is perfect for coffee or breakfast or making a quick lunch. The special deals are amazing. We had a delicious dinner in...

Booked a King room via booking.com for a romantic birthday getaway, just pre-season, requesting a highA floor. Was relegated to a dingy double-double on first floor. Room looked like it hadn't been renovated since the 1970s, except for the odd presence of a very up-to-date kitchenette, with granite surfaces and nice cabinets and appliances. It only served to make the...
