      I had only one problem - the hotel had no record of our reservation via Fortunately, there was a vacancy. There may have been a problem with the e-mail address that the hotel had on file with

      This is the third time we stayed at the Marquis De Lafayette hotel. It's very convenient to restaurants, boardwalk and other sites in the Cape. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable, balcony gives a beautiful view of the ocean (right across the street), you can walk to most restaurants and the new restaurant in the hotel served a very good dinner. All in all I think it's the best buy for Cape May. We will go back again for our fourth time next spring. Also gave us an amazing price for the weekend.

      Everything was great, can't think of one thing we did not like.

      I love the location. All rooms are ocean front so my husband and I enjoyed the beautiful views. We parked our car and walked everywhere we wanted to go.

      The plumbing is old and we had some toilet issues but was quickly taken care of by the maintenance staff.

      Beachview room with deck. Walk to most things, beach, shopping eating

      Not a value priced place but all of cape may has the same problem. Unless you want to drive to the beach everyday plan on $200++ a night.

      The view of the ocean. The living room and bedroom and kitchen amenities. Central location of hotel...the parking lot, the beautiful lamps.

      The balcony door lock is broken, room 500. The toilet paper holder repair needs sanding and painting. Thanks a bunch!!

      The room was a nice size for a family of (4). They had a wonderful breakfast buffet included with your stay and the staff in the restaurant was very helpful. I was only there one night so I don't have much to write about but I would stay there again in the future.

      There was really nothing that I didn't like!

      Location is in the center of Cape May which is short walking distance to all the resturants & stores.The hotel has beautiful ocean views.

      The room was a little warm,the A.c unit could have worked a little better

      Very clean room. Very friendly staff. View of the ocean. Location to center of town and restaurants.

      The room we stayed in needed some minor maintenance. I was told a check out they were in the process to renovating the hotel.
