“Overall, not too bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

I would like to give this place a better review. It is overall a pretty neat, clean, and cheap ($150/night when others were getting $250-300 on a Thursday night stay). Despite the room looking very clean, there was a distinct urine-like odor in the room with a recent attempt at Lysol cover-up. Were it not for that, I probably would have rated at least 4 stars.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2010

This is the perfect place if you are on a budget and want to do an overnight in Cape May without being close to the ocean. The staff was friendly and courteous. The rooms (while small) were clean, comfortable, and consisted of 2 double beds, dresser, table & chairs, a closet alcove, tv, mini fridge and a nice bathroom. You can see the owners take care of this place. There is no phone or alarm clock in the room which was a little odd. My only solid dislike is the parking lot. It is very small and not paved. With large loose stones, people do not know how to park correctly. If you are returning later in the evening, there is a chance you may have to find street parking nearby. I did not experience hearing any traffic sounds in the room at night. It seemed like a quiet street to me.

Small motel (with even smaller parking lot) on the main drag into Cape May. Room had 2 double beds, small but functional bathroom, small refrigerator, and color TV. Parking was a challenge when the motel was full but everyone managed to fit in!
Room is typical of what you can find for a mom & pop motel - nothing fancy but functional and clean. We'll stay there again.

  • Liked — rates cheaper than in Cape May proper
  • Disliked — small parking lot when motel is booked full
