Beautiful rooms, very clean and neat. We just came to celebrate our son's USCG graduation and fall in love with the place. The restaurant awesome. All rooms have a beach view. Walking around the street is just an experience. Definetly comming back again.

We stayed for two nights (Saturday and Sunday). On the weekends, most hotels in the area will not let you book for just one night. Since this was the weekend of the Tree Lighting and the Holiday Parade, it seemed many of the rooms were booked through Sunday. The service was great. Front desk personnel was courteous and friendly. We...

Stayed during the Cape May Fall Birding Festival, which is NOT in season. Great place with an old style "grand" feel to it. Very clean and comfortable rooms. I opted for a larger room with a view of the ocean so had a nice balcony outside of the room with a side view to the ocean. Fairly centrally located, with...

My husband and I booked a one night quiet get away at The Grand Hotel in Cape May, NJ. Since it was the 1st cold autumn day, we had no problem getting our last minute accomodations. There were plenty of available rooms because of the time of year, NOT because of the room itself. We picked this hotel because it...

The rooms are clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful!! I loved the location. It was right across the road from the beach. Beautiful views!! No big crowds to deal with, and the town of Cape May is absolutely beautiful!! I would love to go back, and I would definitely choose this hotel again!!

When we first walked into The Grand Hotel I had a good feeling based on the lovely lobby. It was tastefully decorated to suit the season and was well lit with beautiful furniture. Upon registration we were given a room on the second floor being told that there were few rooms available which seemed strange as there were no cars...

We wanted a place we could go & enjoy our 25th anniversary. We wanted cosy & not to expensive. Our daughter got married 3 weeks before so funds were limited. The hotel is pretty. The indoor pool & hot tub very nice. Staff is very nice. Coffee maker, refrigerator & microwave in the room. Beach is right across the street....

The pool was really nice and well kept this was the highlight of our family's trip. The room heat was way to hot and could not be controlled too the point that we had to open the door for air. The hot water was not very hot with not a lot of pressure in the shower. For the off season...
