Cape May is wonderful even in the off season. The Marquis De Lafayette is one of the few hotels/motels open in the off season. The staff is wonderful. The rooms that we have stayed all look over the beach. I love staying here off season. They are pet friendly and within walking distance of downtown Cape May. This is our...

While an older hotel, it is one of the best locations in Cape May. Each room has there own balcony. Still needs some updating and that seems to be the case each time we go there. Will go back again and enjoy their wonderful breakfast which is also included in the price.

We booked that weekend for a mini vacation to celebrate our anniversary that was on that Saturday, it was a late minute decision and many places we stayed in the past at the B&Bs were booked.

This hotel is across the street from the beach (there are no hotels directly on the beach). It's rather large, but quaint at the same time. Hotel staff is very friendly. My standard hotel room has wicker furniture, consisting of a comfortable bed, two chairs, and end tables. Most rooms are either over the pool or the small parking lot...

We have stayed at the Marq for many years coming to Cape May, and find the place to be very good every time. They have refreshed their rooms and general interior since we last visited - our Victorian had fresh paint on the walls, a new ceiling, and a new fan. The staff is extremely friendly, courteous, and always helpful....
