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...

I don't know how else to refute a previous 2 star review of a guest who stayed one night in this room and then cancelled the rest of his/her stay. If you are looking to come to a fancy New York hotel with all the amenities, you have not read what Summer Station is all about. I have stayed here...

My wife and I just came back from Cape May and we were very disappointed with The Summer Station for a number of reasons, one of which we believe is the inaccuracy of Trip Advisor reviews. A few caveats are in order, for the sake of full disclosure and an honest review: first, we are mature adults looking for comfort,...

Lots of space for families with kitchenette, living room, 2 bedrooms....good location near town and great views of beach....could use some updating to bathrooms/ceilings but all around good value and great pricing with friendly staff!

Drab, dirty and dated... If you're going to Cape May find a better alternative. There are no pictures of their pool on their website, probably for a reason. We check in, took a look at the room, thought about what we had just paid to stay here and decided to leave.

This is our 6th year staying at Summer Station and we are already booked for next year. The staff is excellent and the rooms are great. The cleaning staff is on top of everything. The location and views can not be beat. The higher floor rooms are best. The fourth and third floors have the best views.

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
