They have it all, the rooms, pool, restaurant, outdoor bar, everything all in one place. They also had entertainment, singers, a band one night! The beach was great, with chairs, umbrella's! Had a wonderful, restful vacation !

Guest safety is their last priority. Willing to put loyal guests in harms way to make money. My fiancé and I and another couple reserved a suite here for Labor Day weekend. A few days before we were set to arrive, we saw that Hurricane Hermine was forecast to hit Cape May during our trip with severe flooding, winds and...

The motel is clean and with plenty of parking and comfortable beds. It is located towards the end of Beach Road, a few blocks away from the shopping but the trolley picks up one block away. The beach is directly across the street and the motel provides a hose to rinse of the sand before you get into the pool....

Our room was clean, the cleaning staff worked hard , the staff at the desk were very helpful and friendly. The pool was nice. It was convenient being able to get a drink at the pool. The restaurant wasn't anything to write home about but again convenient. The beach facilities were helpful umbrellas chairs and lunch . We were on...

We just got back from our 3 night stay at The Beach Shack. The place is fun and lively with a great bar and good music. You can walk to most areas that are popular in Cape May. We stayed in a standard room. It was somewhat updated but could use a facelift as per the four star rating. The...

We picked this hotel because we figured it was related to The Congress Hall so service would be good. This part was true, hotel was staffed by hardworking and pleasant employees. A shout out to hardworking Elijah! I liked that we were invited to the Congress Halls events like the carnival was a blast! Okay the room was basic and...

When we arrived we asked for a quiet room and were told ours would be quiet. The laundry center was directly outside our bedroom with machines going non stop. The pool was directly in front with kids screaming all day long. The wifi simply does not work and my husband had work to do on a Friday. The bathroom looked...

The wifi is non existent. It's basically false advertising. If u want to use it u have to basically sit outside the office. I give it 3 stars because they do a good job everywhere else amenity wise but come on its 2016 they must have the first wifi router ever invented. I had same issues with cell signal as...

I didn't know what to expect when my girlfriend suggested we join her for a few days in Cape May. I was happy with how kind Isabella was at the front desk. She helped add an additional day when we thought we wouldn't be able to. The staff moved our belongings quickly and we were notified when our new room...

We've stayed at the Beach Shack on a few occasions. We all enjoy staying there, they're a very dog-friendly hotel with rooms for your dog. The beds are very comfortable, and because it was so hot and humid this trip, we had the AC on at night, which drowned out any noises from outside. They have a restaurant on site...
