The room we had was very nice, with a little alcove/breakfast nook, soft but comfortable mattresses and a very nice kitchenette. There was a nice sized microwave, two burner stove top, toaster, 5 C coffee maker, pots, pans, utensils and ample stoneware. There was also a small kitchen sink and a large pantry for storing our food and of course... More

Stayed here with my husband and 10 month old in August 2013. I liked it because it has an indoor pool in case of rain. It also has a nice outdoor pool. The place was great, nice restaurant for breakfast near the lobby, right on the strip where the beach is, and great walkin distance to pretty much everything you... More

My husband and I stayed at the Grand Hotel in June 2015. For $200 a night, it was absolutely not worth it. While both pools are beautiful, the room itself left a lot to be desired. The bed was uncomfortable, the bathroom was kind of funky and we had to call to ask for our room to be cleaned up.... More

Very old and poor quality room. Rusty faucets. Dirty windows. Tiny room and bathroom. Same thing for the hallway. Actually in some point it was raining from the ceiling. For the price you pay, there are much better options just around the corner.

We just had our wedding at the Grand on 5/15/15. Everything was absolutely amazing! Katlyn and Liz are the best to work with. They made planning so easy. They also took our vision and made it a reality the day of. The food, staff and atmosphere was absolutely perfect from start to finish!

What a great hotel in Cape May! Friendly, knowledgeable staff and a great location! Close to Washington Square and quaint shopped with an up close view of the ocean! Clean, comfortable rooms with a restaurant and bar located within the property! Happy hours too!

The grounds and room were exceptionally clean! The breakfast buffet was excellant. The buffet included eggs benedict and omelets made to order, do it yourself waffles and many other choices! The only issue was at checkin when we had to ask for our breakfast coupons and jazz festival tickets which were part of our package. We had a terrific weekend!

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.

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... More
