A group of us (5 ladies) stayed at this hotel last weekend for a Christmas in Cape May trip. This was the only hotel that had any rooms left so we didn't have much of a choice. Regardless, I tried to book online but the prices were ludicrous so I called to see if they could give me a better...

Looking for an off season weekend getaway. I booked directly with the Hotel and was told the room would more than likely be available before 4PM. Arrived a little before 1PM and greeted by a front desk staff member who is need of customer service training. She rudely told me that the room would be ready between now and 4PM,...

My wife and I decided to hit Cape May on the off-season for a short respite (we've done it many times) and couldn't find a suitable B&B with openings, so we opted for the Marq. They were running a 2-night special for $129/night and the timing for us was perfect. We grabbed a Victorian room with a king-sized bed on...

Maybe the Marquis de Lafayette Hotel isn't a 5-Star luxury palace but I'll tell you something, their staff is FIRST RATE. When we accidentally left the door to our pet-friendly room slightly ajar and our clever little terrier tore out after us like Toto after Dorothy, one of the wonderful guests happened to see poor Winnie running the streets, trying...

I stayed here with my daughter and her family and enjoyed my stay. The location is great, right across from the beach. The room was plain. Typical of what you would see for a beach motel. It's not as beautiful as the Bed & Breakfasts you see in Cape May, but satisfied all of our needs otherwise.

We wanted a pet-friendly hotel and we were grateful to find one in Cape May (which, by the way,is the most pet-unfriendly town i have ever been in). All the hotel's pet-friendly rooms are located on the ground floor so you only have a view of the road and cars driving by from the room and cannot see the ocean....

The hotel is somewhat of a typical Jersey shore-town hotel - meaning a little old, run-down, and the staff generally appears "tired" of dealing with the shore crowd. First floor pet rooms have no view of the ocean, and we were put there even though I had very advanced reservations and no pets. The outside of the hotel is pretty...

Our two day stay at Marquis de Lafayette hotel was our first visit to Cape May. We chose this hotel because we wanted to bring our chihuahua with us.
