We returned again to a wonderful place to stay. Gwen and the rest of staff do everything they can to make sure your stay is what you expected. You can't beat the location. Our room was clean and fully functional on the 3rd floor. The roof top deck is a place we have breakfast every morning and a glass of...

Stayed here for three nights in June. We got to the hotel at 9:45PM and were warmly welcomed by Mark. He was super, telling us where to park, where to get ice, to eat, etc. Later in our stay, he also assisted me with printing of tickets that we needed. Thank you! We stayed in room 13. We could see...

This was our first stay in Cape May but we have stayed in many Beach Resort hotels and motels. This was not one of the better ones. When we entered the room we were greeted by a strong disinfectant smell that did not dissipate even with the windows open for hours. The room itself was dated but clean. We had...

We stayed in a breezeway king here for a couple nights recently. The family that runs the hotel made us feel welcome right away, including Laila the dog. There's convenient parking, with a few parking spots (and a couple unloading/loading spots) right at the hotel and more parking only a half block away. Our room looked like a modern hotel...

Our room was large and beautiful, clean and comfortable with an ocean view! Staff was so friendly and helpful. Location was directly across street from beach entrance with multiple restaurant and shopping choices right there but it was quiet. Having the pool there was a perk as well. Parking was close. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Dated rooms. Very dated linens with burn holes in the blanket, holes in the bottom sheet, a plastic cover on the mattress that crunched every time we rolled over, VERY dated bathroom, dated shower, no amenities in the bath, skinny no-nothing bars of soap-that's it. Very expensive for what we got! Sweet town with Victorian homes that are incredible. Try...

Gwen F, General Manager at Heritage Inn, responded to this review

After reading your review I must say I am a little baffled as your review is contrary to all of our other reviews. Our guests love the Heritage and come back year after year sometimes 2 or 3 times in the same year staying for 4-5 nights at a time. I apologize if we were not up to your standards...
