Stayed at this B&B on NYE. Little dated but very clean and close to town. Absolutely fine for our one night stay. Room only had fridge not a microwave but absolutely fine for the night. Would stay again if price is right.

Went for an overnight to see the holiday lights. This was the only place we could book for one night at a reasonable price. The location was great - right on the beach and about 6 blocks from downtown. The hotel has a bit of a dated feel and a damp smell is the hallways but the room was clean...

This was one of the only places in Cape May that had a last-minute reservation. Couldn't have asked for more (except maybe an elevator to our 5th floor room). Staff was welcoming and helpful. Location right across from the beach but within walking distance to all the shops in town. It is not fancy, but it gives you the feeling...

Our first visit to this hotel as we normally stay at the B&B's located in Cape May...this was a very busy weekend and everything was sold out! I found the last room and booked our weekend stay at The Macomber. The price is very affordable! The hotel sits across from the ocean and our room had ocean views. Our room...

Will cut to the chase. Beds are uncomfortable. Didn't seem to be any padding at all. Still managed to sleep because I was tired, but the hotel really needs to invest in some memory foam toppers. Otherwise, everything was lovely. They honor their history by keeping the decor and furnishings old fashioned which I'm personally fine with. Staff were perfectly...

The room was lovely and well appointed (even a mini fridge). The beds were a different story altogether...... even though there were memory foam mattresses they had retained someone else's memories. I was only able to sleep by laying sideways on the bed. My wife had similar issues. Reception staff was very helpful. All rooms seem to have an ocean...

Quaint. Friendly. Unique. I am asked to write minimum of 200 words to describe this hotel, however, quaint, friendly and unique best sum up the environment, the hostess, and the vintage hotel. Celebrating 100 years this year, and continuing to keep a cozy and comfortable stay, by providing minimal modern technology, made it perfect for us. Sunrise is beautiful from...

My husband and I came for a wedding and stayed here because the wedding hotel was sold out. I could book through hotels.com which I was happy about because I got the points!

We booked this hotel in advance as it was reasonably priced and well located. I read reviews about the stairs and no elevator but it was of no consequence. We were on the third floor which basically is one floor up. The hotel is very central to Cape May, we walked everywhere. The staff was most helpful. The rooms were...

My wife & I always stay here when on vacation in Cape May. Priced right, especially being right across the street from the beach. In walking distance of so many things that we love to do, especially the main shopping area. All other things are a short driving distance away. Rooms are always so clean and plenty of parking. No...
