Pleasant staff. Clean spacious rooms Great location. Beach view was terrific Close to restaurants and across the street from the beach. Historic hotel so no elevator. Third floor is actually 4 flights. Might be an issue if unable to do stairs. If you can.worth the walk

My husband and I stayed at the Macomber for 2 days. The location is ideal and the view from our second floor bedroom was stunning. We knew about the stairs so that was not an issue: we even joked that the exercise gave us a free pass to eat whatever we wanted. The bed was comfortable and the room clean,...

Crystal and your team, We had to thank you for a lovely midweek stay. I've been in the Macomber before (for dinner) but had not stayed there, so some of the past reviews seemed questionable. We rented two rooms, 1 and 26 (above famous room 10 but sadly, no excitement :) It IS an old hotel. It DOES have lots...

I expected more of a B&B experience in the grand old hotel. Often there was no one at the front desk. There were no services, morning coffee etc. Their web site warns you about the stairs. Heed warning. All in all it was not worth the price. The front porch has rocking chairs facing the beach, but there is an...

The rooms are VERY small, but clean and the front desk staff were friendly. The bathroom was OK, however the shower stall had no door, just a curtain and it was difficult to keep the water contained in the shower, had to point the shower head straight down...had a very wet floor both mornings. The fact that there was no...

Went to Cape May for a wedding. Was happy to be able to get a room for 2 nights since many require a 3 night minimum in season. If you get a room on the second or third floor, it helps to be in really good shape of be half mountain goat. I counted 61 steps to climb from the...

I would never recommend this hotel to anyone which is unfortunate because the location and price are ideal. But as things usually reflect their price in this case its an understatement.

I have been a business traveler for 27 years, and averaged a 1 to 2 nights in hotels a week over the course of that time. I have stayed in at least a hundred different hotels, and the bed at the Hotel Macomber is in the top 3 most uncomfortable I have ever slept in. We were in Room 5,...

A great place to celebrate your anniversary or special occasion. Its charming (romantic), close to the ocean, within walking distance to great restaurants and has onsite parking. There's actually a great (fine dining) restaurant on the main floor-- try it out!
