Cape May is beautiful but expensive. Our motel was well situated, but expensive($225 = tax) and lacked many amenities which I generally take for granted. These included: a coffee maker, a phone, a clock, shampoo and pamphlets which listed restaurants and attractions . None of these are expensive items. They were available in the efficiency units, which I was never...

We really enjoyed our stay at Mt. Vernon. Very cozy and very clean. This is a little mom and pop's place is conveniently located across the street from the beach. It may be considered "old school" by some, but updated enough to make it comfortable. Of course you would find some issues would expect from an older building ie: some...

My husband and I enjoyed a great weekend at the Mt. Vernon Motel. This great little motel was extremely clean, the staff was nice and the value of the room was excellent. The rooms are not fancy, but a great value for the price paid and the bathrooms are remodeled. The location of the motel is perfect, located directly across...

My husband and I were in need of a much needed weekend getaway. The Mt. Vernon was just what we needed. Clean comfortable room with a birds eye view of the Atlantic. What beautiful land scape! Close to the Washington square and walking distance of some awesome dining experiences. Pool well taken care of. We were totally satisfied.

We visit Cape May almost every year and we usually stay at the Mount Vernon. It is always very clean and nicely landscaped with beautiful flowers. The owners are very efficient and nice, always quick to respond to any issue. Pool is spotless and has more room for lounge chairs than most of the other hotels and motels in Cape...
