Has one A/C unit, it's noisy. Wish it had an elevator. Breakfast is basic great donuts, has bagels, cereal, coffee, juice. We...

The king suites are roomy and the balconies with rocking chairs are so relaxing. The location is central to everything. breakfast is included and Cape May prices can be steep so that is...

The hotel was very nice, clean and the staff was very friendly. The location was great since it was right across from the beach and within walking distance from everything else. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location across from the beach and within walking distance of everything. You don't need the car once you arrive unless you want to try out the wineries, the zoo which to our amazement was free or the lighthouse all well worth the time.

We just celebrated our 20th anniversary. We began going to Cape May for our first anniversary in 1997. My husband didn't like the idea of staying at a B&B. We had to find our information about hotels and it was before the computer age. I called the Chamber of Commerce and they sent me a book with all hotels and...

Had a wonderful overnight at Avondale By The Sea in mid October. Room was clean and comfortable. The staff were lovely people. It has all of the key amenities, Cable TV, Wifi, and a continental breakfast. If you are visiting Cape May during the peak of the hawk migrations, this is the place to stay. Small complaint: the bathroom shower...

Other Reviewers have quite rightly described the attractions of this delightful Hotel. Lovely spotlessly clean Rooms and advice on local amenities freely given by the friendly Owners. We were staying at the end of the Season - opens April and closes at the end of October - but even so the fact that the Hotel was full says everything about...

Our stay at the Avondale was very comfortable and affordable. The people working the front desk were kind and considerate and the gentleman checking us in even took the time to carry my wife's luggage to our room. Our room was clean, and had a wonderful view of the ocean. We have been going to Cape May for years and...

Once again, my daughter and I spent our mother-daughter week end here. Not disappointed. In this price range this place gets 5 stars. Rooms are updated, clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are immaculate. Friendly staff. Continental breakfast is generous. Easy walk to most destinations .Located across from the beach. Sit in your rocking chair and enjoy the view. Most rooms have...
