Wedding on the beach with family and friends, what else can you ask for. The hotel was clean and beautiful, but the staff went out of there way to make you feel comfortable. I would recommend this hotel for a vacation or any family get together. Everything was perfect.

Just spent a few days at the Alcott for the wedding of my nephew. The place was wonderful. The staff was friendly and welcoming and the facility itself is just lovely - perfect blend of old and new. My room was somewhat small but well appointed and spotlessly clean (which I value above most other attributes). The wedding was held... More

If you're looking for ambiance... no, this is not the place to stay. Okay, so the service was friendly, rooms clean and bed comfortable. The minus is that it's at the end of the strip , minimal parking near the hotel otherwise you have to walk 5 city blocks to the designated parking area. Hey!... sometimes a clean, comfortable bed...

Went for the long Labor Day weekend and expected more. Chose a standard queen size room since we were not going to be spending much time in there although still pricy. Didn't mind how small it was, but did mind the coffee or soda stains all over a couple walls where someone must have had a temper tantrum, the stained... More

This is a very nice hotel with very friendly service - but a few things you should know. Rooms are good sized for Cape May and a very short walk to the beach. Charming / nicely decorated (not as ornate as the B&B's in Cape May - but very nice). Carpeting on 2nd and 3rd floors is a bit worn... More

We stayed here only one night but the ambiance is wonderful - if you like the old quaint kind of place. We splurged for one of 4 rooms on the terrace (realy a porch) which was so worth it. The room was somewhat small, clean, sparsely but nicely decorated, comfy bed, with lovely bathroom. And we could see the ocean... More

Hubby and I went for a few getaway days to Cape May and booked the Hotel Alcott. For us, not a wise choice! If you have any disability with walking, you may want to reconsider. There is no elevator in this hotel. The second and third floors are where the bedrooms are. Second floor has 26 steps and another set... More

I called and requested a 1st floor room because my husband can't go up stairs (bad Back). They said they would add it to the reservation.

Thank you for your feedback. We're terribly sorry that the stairs were a hardship for your husband. You are correct in stating that we only have one suite available on the first floor. All other rooms are on the second and third floor and the hotel, a historic property, does not have an elevator. We apologize if you felt misled.... More

Many thanks for your feedback. As a historic property (the second oldest in Cape May), you are correct in stating we do not have an elevator. In addition, our rooms come in many sizes depending on the type you select. Should you return to Cape May and choose to sample another property, we hope that we compare favorably. It is... More
