We did an extended weekend at the beach shack... we opted for the family suite with a bedroom for the my wife and I and a pull out sofa for our 8 year old. The room had a decent mini fridge, microwave and TV. Loved walking across the street to the beach concierge service where for a smile and a...

This is the second time our family has been to Cape May, and the Beach Shack remains an enjoyable experience. It's not the most sophisticated of places, and the rooms could be improved (noisy air conditioning, tiny bathrooms), but that is outweighed by the prime location facing the beach, and the great atmosphere of the bar and restaurant. We appreciated...

We just returned from a 2nd annual Girls trip to the Beach Shack. We are a group of ladies in our early fifties and loved the Beach Shack last year. We were not disappointed with our most recent trip! The staff is amazing from the front desk, to the beach and at the Rusty Nail Bar. The hotel is loaded...

We stay at the Beach Shack every year. The staff is always helpful and pleasant. Love the atmosphere of the Rusty Nail. I do wish they opened for breakfast during the week. We stayed end of May into June since it is not peak season I assume is the reason. But I did see a lot of other guests looking...

Our first experience with the Beach Shack was in 2011. We loved it so much it was the natural place to stay on our return trip. The location is perfect, close to many places to eat and of course the beach. The rooms were comfy, clean, and well-appointed. There was ALWAYS staff around doing something; cleaning, setting out towels, serving...

I have stayed at this location many times even back to when it was the coachman, and have never had such a poor experience. I booked a family unit with two double bed and got a unit with one, when I told the office about it I was told they were all booked, another way of saying to bad your...

I just stayed at the Beach Shack with some friends for two nights and was very impressed. The staff were super nice to us!! And the whole place had a very chilled beachy feel to it. They have a fire pit and live music to relax by in the evening. They also provide complimentary beach chairs and towels at the...

didn't know what to expect and everything exceeded our expectations. Since the group of owners own Congress Hall down the street, we knew the place HAD to be good. Shabby Chic surfer décor and good service! Location was PERFECT, across the street from beautiful beach and walking distance to historic town. Rusty Nail is a laid back, bare foot, super...
