This "hotel" is so comfortable that it's easy to forget that you're not staying in your own home. Everyone from the front desk to the staff that cleans your room is friendly and accommodating. Stay there!

Don't know what the complaints are about. Our room was spotless (including carpet), no bugs anywhere in sight. Front office staff were all very pleasant and welcoming. Maid service was excellent. Only negative is that the elevator doesn't run from 11 pm to 8 am. If you are on a high floor and want to go out early for the...

Was there this Labor Day weekend and spent $300/night to stay in an ocean front room. The first night in the room, I experienced an extremely large bug running under the bathroom sink at night. I then killed several large crickets. The manager, Bill Mullins, had the room sprayed the next day. Since he sprayed the room, he felt his...

We stayed at the Summer Station Hotel in Cape May for a Family Reunion. It was nice since there were some central areas to meet. We had nice views from our beachfront room. Be advised the elevators only operate certain hours so if you need to leave early with luggage you will need to be aware you will be carrying...

I have stayed at Summer Station many times and can't say enough good things about it. The location is great, across from the beach and you can walk to anywhere in town. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. The pool is well maintained and always clean. It is well worth the money.

I accidentally discovered the Summer Station Hotel when my family and I decided to extend our Cape May vacation through the 4th of July weekend. I was staying in a different hotel but could not extend my stay there because nothing was avaiable. In fact, I could not get a reservation anywhere else either because it was one of the...

I booked a room at the Summer Station after I couldn't get a room at another place we had stayed..I was very happy with my decision. The location was perfect. We walked everywhere. The room was very nice and just big enough for my husband, myself and our 3yr old. I do agree with others that said the carpets were...

Stayed at Summer station for 4 nights. You get all the perks of renting a condo without having to commit to an entire week long rental. We stayed in unit 309 which was very clean upon check in and had a just cleaned smell . My only complaint is that we did find 2 ant traps in the condo and...

I used to absolutely love this place and looked forward to staying here each summer with my wife and child. The location is great and the units were updated several years ago. Sadly, after many years of coming to Cape May and staying at Summer Station we will have to take our business elsewhere. Based on the reviews I have...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A tradition of luxury and elegance has been found in Cape May since before the turn of the century, and now Summer Station is part of that tradition. With an imposing facade that blends with the stately Victorian homes, and accommodations that offer a gracious vacation lifestyle. The inviting sandy beach is just steps from your door; or you may prefer the sparkling water of our pool with surrounding sundeck. ... more   less
