This vintage hotel is located just a block from the boardwalk in Cape May and amidst that community's justly famous Victorian neighborhoods. The hotel is not fancy or especially luxurious, and the decor is modest. But the spaces are pleasant and the porches capacious; the staff was friendly and cooperative, the beds comfortable, and rooms perfectly clean. The breakfast is...

Great sleep. Really quiet in spite of three wedding receptions during our stay; didn't hear a thing as the room was well away from the action. Everything about the room was great: well furnished, great bed, great bathroom; great TV though too tired at night to make much use of it. Love the relative location: easy walking distance from everything...

My May 3rd wedding reception was AMAZING! From the day we walked into Alcott we knew it was for us! Such a pretty venue with hardwood floors and a cute outside patio..it was perfect for our 125 guest wedding. Nick, Alan, and Kate were all so super helpful throughout the whole planing process. They were all quick to answer questions...

A mix up in my reservations as to what room I had reserved started off everything on the wrong foot. Staff was pleasant, room was nice but they need to change their carpeting. Very old and stained. Breakfast good and close to beach.

The whole experience was a disaster. The price is highway robbery. Beds are lumpy and old matteresses. Breakfast is better not to have. Has no parking for it's patrons. Don't stay on the second floor. Has no elevator. No one to help with the bags. A place not to stay at.

Thank you for your feedback. We think perhaps you were unaware that the Hotel Alcott is the second oldest operating hotel in Cape May and, as such, unfortunately does not offer elevators. We do, however, offer many modern conveniences and our mattresses are actually new feather top mattresses. We're sorry if they were not to your liking. In addition, breakfast...

We returned to Hotel Alcott after 14 years and found it as lovely as our first stay. It is a beautifully maintained older building located just one block off the gorgeous beaches of Cape May. They serve a tasty continental breakfast & coffee, pitchers of iced water and trays of fresh cookies are served in the lobby, all day and...

My wife book this as a surpise birthday get away. The hotel is, at most, 75 yards from the beach and the location is great. The staff, especially, Kate, is very friendly and informative. The room top notch.

We booked this hotel on booking.com and only because all the other hotels had a two night minimum. (Hotel Alcott does also, but found a loophole through the site). Positives: One night was all we needed. Free snack, beverages in lobby. Free Continental Breakfast. Location was ok. Clean room, large bathroom. Negatives: Free parking is a lot that is actually...
