This is the oldest Victorian building in Cape May, and old rambling place with a lovely wrap around porch and plenty of rockers and chairs to enjoy the slow pace and sea air. No view of the ocean, but it's only a block or so...More

Charming, old, historic hotel near the center of town and beaches, bicycle rentals, restaurants, local theater and more. Stayed in a shared bath, which was fine, clean, & affordable. I would have given a 4 star but never could get hot water in either shower....More
