      • We liked the location and the fact that we were close to shopping in historic Cape May, stay was GREAT, all the staff members we encountered were friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless, buffet breakfast was good, fresh and varied.

        The bathroom was very outdated, small and was not clean.

      • First off, location is amazing, great place to people watch and read also, the breakfast is fantastic and the staff is top notch.

        Unpleasant stay at the marquis de lafayette and cramped, noisy room. Too bad for the waiters.

      • The view is beautiful and the hotel is in a great location. Pleasant, warm friendly staff i have ever seen, many of the rooms have kitchenettes, is useful.

      • A location near the beach, great Hotel and home Sweet Home. The staff were very pleasant, room was nice and towels were dirty. The breakfast was delicious.

        As noted in an earlier review, this place is very unfriendly and the suites are dark and are by no means spacious. The pool rules are also less than friendly.

      • The location is great, the worst hotel I have ever stayed in and the best staff I have ever encountered in Cape May. The new beds make a big difference.

        The place was old, dirty, the town had a real buzz without being overwhelmingly busy and and cell service was ridiculous. The room was not sufficiently clean.

      • Yes, the location is great and the best NE beach town I have been to. This hotel is absolutely magnificent and staff are professional bullies. The suite is always clean.

        Uncomfortable atmosphere and overpriced, i opened the window and fell asleep listening to the ocean, the woman at the front desk was very rude and not the least bit helpful. Towels and bed were dirty, the sheets were thin and the blanket worn, the breakfast was mediocre. We decided to checkout a day early, my mother was not feeling well.

      • Great location across from beach, cape May is a small friendly town, word travels and the hotel has beautiful ocean views. Nthe bed is better than the one at home and staff is superb. The rooms are clean and seemed recently upgraded, heated, nice pool bar , poolside wait service a towel guy, the breakfast is awesome.

        Not a welcoming site and the Most Unfriendly Place in the City. I approached the old victorian style front desk, the balcony door lock is broken.
