    I would say, its probably due to the fact that they did a huge renovation on the property, and of course they need to keep competitive to all the other properties in Cape May, especially since they are "beach front"

    Pool was not redone from what I know. Which is probably on their hit list of updates, hopefully. Not sure about bathrooms.
