“Will come back!”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

We stayed here last July for a long weekend. We loved the central location of the Sandpiper, altough I wouldn't call it a beach resort, its more like a vacation rental with daily maid service. Staff if nice, rooms are clean, you have a full kitchen, faciltiy and pool...located across the street fromt he beach. Oh ya, you ahve to buy a daily beach pass, try to get one for the entire weekend to save $$...
Great places to eat nearby, the Rusty Nail great for lunch, Beach Creek was amazing!
Marini Beach was ok, they told us it was haunted...idk

Room Tip: Get one on the outter end on the right side

The hotel only had a 1 bedroom available for the first 2 nights of our stay and it was nice but a little small (especially the bathroom) for our family of 2 adults and 2 (8 &11) children. The oceanview made up for it though! Our last 2 nights were spent in a 2 bedroom and it was incredibly spacious and comfortable! The 1 bedroom showed a little wear and tear (especially the rug in the livingroom) but both rooms were very clean. The utensils, pots and pans looked brand new which I found impressive! Loved the location because we were a 5 minute walk to restaurants and shopping. Front desk took time to recommend restaurants and activities to us and the older gentleman who checked us in was incredibly nice! The Sandpiper is a little expensive for off season but it is Cape May and we would stay in the 2 bedroom again because I like having peace of mind that everything is clean!

The Sandpiper offers lovely accomodations with beautiful ocean views. The staff is excellent and you want for nothing. LOVE the place.

We stayed mid-week in mid-September at the Sandpiper Beach Club in Cape May, NJ and thoroughly enjoyed it. The unit was a one bedroom with full kitchen on the first floor. The hotel is across the road from the beach, but you need to walk a little bit to the beach service hut where you get complimentary loungers, umbrellas, chairs. The unit was very clean and we loved it. The furniture is okay - beach decor. The price is pretty high considering how it was furnished, but the linens were crisp and everything was spotless. To me, it's worth it. I am not a fan of "charming" Victorian B&Bs where the draperies and soft furniture has been used without cleaning for last 100 years.

Pros: 1) super clean; 2) beach front (across the road); 3) beach service; 4) did I mention clean :)
Cons: 1) loud in-room central A/C (can be bothersome at night in the summer); Not many cons.

Reviewed 25 September 2011

Located directly across the street (Beach Avenue) in Cape May, the Sandpiper is a great location with a great view. Our room was on the 3rd floor of the wing closest to the ocean and from the balcony, unless you look down, you’d hardly know there was a road between you and the road!

When we got to our room, we were very impressed with the décor and layout. You come in to a full kitchen area with marble counter tops, that opens out to a large living room with an ocean view balcony and another wall with large widows looking west down the shore. Our room had two bedrooms with 2 full (nicely appointed) bathrooms (one of them en suite). A minor complaint is that while the master bedroom had an ocean view, the smaller bedroom had windows looking out onto the hallway (fine for kids, I suppose … and since this room was at the end of the hall, it would be rare for anyone else to be walking by those windows).

When we checked in, they gave us a discount breakfast coupon to the Rusty Nail restaurant a block or two down Beach Avenue. This is a very casual (bathing suits are okay) place at the Beach Shack motel (a sister property to the Sandpiper) with great breakfasts. Not sure why they only gave us 1 coupon since we were there for 4 days, but it didn’t really matter since it was great to have the eat-in kitchen right in our room!

The center of Cape May is a very short walk, by the historic Congress Hall hotel (check out the “Blue Pig” restaurant). There are the typical tourist shops and great restaurants of all descriptions (don’t miss Kohr Brothers frozen custard shop … get the orange/vanilla swirl cone!) along a walking mall in the center of town. A long walk down the beach (or a short drive) toward the mouth of the Delaware River is the historic Cape May lighthouse which (on a clear day) offers spectacular views of the area.

One excellent perk that the Sandpiper (and their sister properties) offers is complementary beach-chair/umbrella/towel service right on the beach. Just walk up to their beach cabana, give your name and room number to the attendant and he’ll set up your chairs and umbrella for you at no extra charge (although a tip is much appreciated). Or, if the surf is a bit rough that day, there is a very nice swimming pool right in front of the hotel.

The cleaning staff did an excellent job and they were very friendly when they came to offer towel and linen service (twice a day … which is great for a beach hotel!).

I’d definitely recommend the Sandpiper to anyone who wants to get away for a few days at the low-key end of the “Jersey Shore”!

Room Tip: Ask for a 3rd floor room at the end of the east wing, closest to the ocean.
