Thanks for an enjoyable stay and we will be back in the future. Thanks to Justin and Maryanne for their assistance. The housekeepers as well for supplying us with our needed essentials with...

Summer Station is open year-round and its prices are always reasonable, especially in the off seasons which are the best times for birding, in any case. The units are actually condos which are rented out by the owners. You would never know this since the property is run like a hotel. The front desk staff is super nice and experienced....

We spent five nights recently at Summer Station, and were very pleased with the property, which had been recommended to us by a fellow TripAdvisor fan. We never even took our beach chairs out of the car, as we had a tremendous view of the beach from our balcony. The condo was well equipped, but with no individual touches. Bed...

I booked a unit with two bedrooms for the last weekend in April. The unit was spacious, clean and very affordable. The location was within walking distance to the beach, the bird observatory and great restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful, even staying past the office closing time for our late arrival on Friday. Great place!

Agree with others. This place needs updating. We stayed on the first floor and our view was of a sand dune. Plusses: our "apartment" had a washer and dryer and a clean kitchen. Minuses: There was 1 bedroom with a door and the second bed room had a curtain for a door. The bathroom was extremely outdated. There was 1...

Summer Station is the perfect location. Even off season, there were a quite a few restaurants open in Cape May and the food was great. Summer Station was within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and it is right across the street from the beach. The staff is very friendly and Helpful. It was great having a washer and dryer in...

We stayed at Summer Station Hotel for a week. We had 4 people in our group and this was the only hotel that we could find that offered separate rooms for us. Master bedroom had a king bed, "den" had two twins with a curtain. I understand that other suites came with a queen bed in the den room. We...

For a number of years, Summer Station has been my number one favorite place to stay when I am visiting Cape May for events with Cape May Bird Observatory/NJ Audubon Society. All of the units are suites with 2 bedrooms, full kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, stove/oven, refrigerator/freezer, dining area and living room with a flat screen TV and sofa...

At Cape May the informal,beach atmphere pervades all hotels,even the highest in the ranking and the Summer station,fits in the scene! The beach is across the street and not far from shops and all what you need to have nearby. The hotel itself needs however some more small attentions and an update to the bathrooms,maybe have TV in the rooms.Air...

This was our first family vacation traveling with our 4 year old and a 19 year old. The location of the hotel and the comfort of the room made things very easy. Great pool and literally steps away from the beach. We felt like we vacationed in our very own second apartment. Service at Summer Station was excellent! We asked...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A tradition of luxury and elegance has been found in Cape May since before the turn of the century, and now Summer Station is part of that tradition. With an imposing facade that blends with the stately Victorian homes, and accommodations that offer a gracious vacation lifestyle. The inviting sandy beach is just steps from your door; or you may prefer the sparkling water of our pool with surrounding sundeck. ... more   less
