We were in a bit of a bind trying to find a pet-friendly hotel in Cape May on short(ish) notice, so we ended up here. For the price, we'll be looking elsewhere next time. The location was great, although parking was a pain (not enough spots for guests, have to cram into an Austin Powers-esque parking lot a block away). The room we had, while it was nice to face the beach, was tiny and in very rough shape. Figured it'd be fine, as we'd be out all day and just be back there to sleep. Turns out there was a flood light for the service corridor directly outside our bedroom window, so despite shutting the flimsy blinds, it was like daylight at all times in that room. No one slept well.

Outside of that, everyone was very friendly and, again, the location was excellent. The complimentary breakfast buffet was also awesome, and the pool looked very nice (although we didn't get a chance to use it). I've read that there are newer rooms that are nice, but haven't seen them to judge. We won't be taking the risk when take our trip to Cape May next year.

Weekend retreat went very well. Very friendly, accommodating staff. Room was really tiny, but we managed just fine, the rate could not have been better. Outstanding beach view, adorable front porch with rocking chairs; we were perfectly warm outside for a November weekend. We will definitely be back next spring!

This was the first time vacationing with my dog, and it was amazing. The hotel had a separate section for dog lovers and it was terrific. I've vacationed at the Marquis a long time ago for many, many years with my parents who are deceased, and it brought back so many wonderful, but tear-filled memories. There were a few changes, but it is still the most fantastic ocean front hotel in Cape May. We will DEFINITELY be back soon.

The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was nice. We travel with a large group who stayed across the street. Our intention was to get everyone to stay here from now on. My problem was when I checked in I told the clerk that I always use my AAA in order to get a discount, It did not show up in the system, I was told that they could not apply it. When I called for the reservation information I was told that there was no package deals. I overheard the guest ahead of us, and it turns out there is a bed breakfast deal (Which we always get at the hotel across the street) Again unable to change and apply,. That turned me off and we will continue to stay elsewhere on our yearly group Cape May trip. Customer satisfaction should always be a priority.

Dear Nanrob2014, Thank you for staying at the Marquis de Lafayette Hotel and for your comments about our rooms, beds and staff. With regard to our discounted AAA rate, we no longer apply the discount during departure as we now have built into the rate. However, there are exceptions to the rule and if you would kindly email me, jmorano@marquiscapemay.com, your name and stay dates, I would be more than willing to check this for you. I have also reminded our front desk staff to always offer the option of breakfast during the reservation and check-in process. Again thank you for your comments and I am looking forward to hearing from you. With kind regards, Joe Morano Front Office Manager jmorano@marquiscapemay.com

No. But if you stay in first floor pet friendly suite rooms that are right behind the pool, your dog can stay in the small patio area in front of your room that is enclosed by gate.
