"Very unhappy customer"
The Hotel its self needs to be updated. Rooms are very cold. The rate of the hotel was too much for the condition of the room. I don't think I will be back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cape May, NJ Treasure"
Hotel provided a wonderful buffet breakfast in pleasant surroundings. The location was excellent for sightseeing, shopping and dining. The staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cold air coming in through the door gap"
The door of the room could use some adjustment to stop the cold air from coming in through the gap. We complained and the hotel put us in another room, and the situation was improved, but not eliminated. Otherwise, things are OK and the hotel is in a great location in Cape May.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love This Hotel"
Built in late 1800s, beautifully decorated for a romantic get-away or family vacation. Located directly across from beach. Very comfortable bed. Great balcony. Close to shopping and restaurants on main strip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Stay in a Great Town"
I went to Cape May with my Mother and teenage daughter for a girls weekend during the holiday season. Location is perfect! Car can remained parked, walking to the Washington Mall area is only a block or two away. Check in was quick and easy. Our room was on the 5th floor, an ocean view suite. I was a little nervous as we walked down the hallway because […] the hall seemed a little run down and dark. However, when we entered the room it was much nicer than expected. Room was very clean and the set up was nice. View perfect. We called front desk to request bedding for the pull out. Almost immediately someone had brought us everything we needed. The best part though, is the included free breakfast. Has everything you could ask for and more. Made to order eggs, waffles, French toast, cream chipped beef. A ton of breakfast meats and sides, pastries, breads. The list goes on and on. All drinks and juices are included too. Service was friendly and fast. All food pans were kept full throughout. Really nice treat. I would choose this hotel again and recommend to others for sure. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just what we wanted!"
Cape May is beautiful and our experience in the hotel was as I remembered it...big room, balcony overlooking the ocean. It felt very quaint. It is close to everything. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Perfect getaway from NYC hustle and bustle!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Cape May Getaway"
My wife and I needed to get away for a weekend and we love Cape May, so we booked 2 nights in late October. The Marquis de Lafayette was the perfect hotel for our trip. It's within walking distance of everything and we were able to walk to the beach, great restaurants, bars, shopping and even the horse carriage tours. We had a great time as there were […] many Halloween-themed events over the weekend. Also, waking up to a hot breakfast buffet each morning was fantastic. Food was great and staff was wonderful. Overall the room was very clean and attended to daily by the housekeeping staff, who were very attentive and did an amazing job. We will definitely come back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very pleasant stay"
When I arrived at my door I was very disappointed .The door was rusty and showed signs of a poorly done repair. The room was clean and nicely furnished. I was very pleased. The breakfast buffet was tasty and bountiful. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pleasant staff. Old hotel that has been renovated to cover up most of the worn building. The location is good and near most activities. The bathroom is extremely small but adequate. The hot breakfast was very good with numerous choices on the menu including a chief to make your personalized omelet. AlanGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice relaxing stay"
The room was clean and comefortable. The location is fantastic. We had an ocean view and were within walking distance ( 3 blocks) of the walking mall and all the main restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great staff across from beach"
Free breakfast buffet was delicious and the room was nice. The personnel were very friendly and helpful. The only drawback was the mattress in the room was uncomfortable and I feel sorry for any adults who sleep on the pull outs! View was gorgeous and the hotel was centrally located and within walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. We […] brought our two small children and they had a blast; I would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Spent 2 days at the Marquis de L - and enjoyed the time there very much. It is in an excellent location, straight across from a great beach and within easy walking distance of many terrific restaurants. It has an old fashioned feel, but is clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful, elegant, hotel has seen better days"
I loved Marquis De Lafayette Hotel. I remember riding my bike past it when I was a child and wondering about the rich people who could stay in such a wonderful place. Now I wonder how the hotel justifies charging such high prices while not spending money on needed updates. The rooms were a little bit run down, the staff was wonderful but seemed harried […] and overworked, and the hotel was clean. There were little things like the broken ice cream machine in the hall on the second floor and the exposed duct work (not in the cool, industrial way) that made me question whether management was even trying to keep the place upscale. The hotel had a wonderful breakfast and is on an excellent location. And I love quirky places like this. But I know that I could have a room that is nicer for less money at one of the less famous places in the neighborhood and I doubt that I'll go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"location was great, but....."
The location was great., but the hotel really showed is age. Room was damp and had damp musty smell whether we had door open, or air on. Couch felt damp. Carpet felt damp and I didn't really want to walk on it. It may have helped if there was tile instead of carpet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location right across from the beach"
This was a great experience. The hotel is right at the beach, the staff is friendly and accommodating, the room had everything that we needed, and the free breakfast buffet was fantastic!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect for friend getaway. The suite was perfect for four including overall space, sleeping arrangements and the kitchen with refrigerator. We were able to walk everywhere, which was exactly what we all wanted.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very noisy after 1AM!"
We have stayed at the Marquis De Lafayette many times over the years without a problem. This was the first time in June and we did not sleep well at all! The first night it was well inebriated guest load talking and occasional shouting into the early morning hours. The second night it was skate boarding and maintenance work after 1AM. We realize that […] the people above us were locked out of their room by a key failure and the lock had to be hammered off, but their was excessive tool dropping, floor scrapping and and shooting that was over the top! We will not go back there again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"great hotel amenities, ocean front, clean"
we were revisiting cape may after 8 years and chose to stay in the same hotel by the beach. the hotel has all required amenities, is by the beach and close to downtown. this time we went with family. convenient laundry, housekeeping calls, hot breakfast daily at the onsite restaurant and friendly and helpful staff. the suites would stay a family of […] 4 comfortably. rooms and bathrooms were clean. full kitchenette was available along with cutlery and for those who like the convenience of a keurig machine they had them in the room. laundry chutes for dirty linen not accumulating in the room. we would stay at the same hotel if we visit again.

"Requested a king size bed and got 2 twins instead"
Very disappointed. Requested a king size bed and got 2 twins instead. Not happy about that since I was spending a lot of money for 2 nights. Will never go back there again. Hotel needs lots of updating and repairs. And I will never use Expedia ever again either. Very bad experience altogether.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cape May beachfront"
Best complementary breakfast I ever had! Located on the beach with access to many shops and restaurants within walking distance. Pet and kid friendly. Balconies facing the ocean. Staff was superb. The only negative was that the larger tv was not in bedroom. Tony the bartender (on weekends) made amazing drinks and was hilarious! I had such an amazing […] time here and will definitely be back this year (I hope)! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Opposite the Beach"
The Standard Room was lovely, with a small porch overlooking the ocean on Beach Avenue. Slightly loud on a Saturday nite with revelers on street and in next room. Breakfast was ample with many selections, and included in room price. The bad part was dealing with the daytime Front Desk Hostess and the Daytime Manager, who were like "evil twins", refusing […] to let us see various available rooms, insisting we had to have the one assigned to us. Our assigned room was opposite the noisy hotel kitchen fan and near the icemaker. The response we received to our complaint was that we could not be moved, they were booked. Later that day, we approached the afternoon/evening General Manager with our concerns, who quickly checked the computer and was happy to move us to another room just down the hall. All four days of our stay, the Vacancy Sign remained on. AND the daytime staff avoiding meeting our eyes. Poor form, indeed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were very outdated. I expected a nicer room, especially for the price. There are not enough outlets at all. They do give a free breakfast which was very good. Will not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I got stuck after missing the ferry. The manager upgraded my room to a suite and recommended a wonderful restaurant/pub just down the street. Definitely see another stay there in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff here is one of the most friendliest and welcoming staff. The hotel itself is rich in history- some reviews say it's a bit "dated", but we didn't mind at all- it was actually a nice change of pace and felt homey. Right across the street from the beach- the balcony rocking chairs were very comfortable and the view is superb. Close to shops and […] restaurants. We stayed in the Cape May Suite and was perfect for my husband and I and our two girls. Breakfast came with our stay and the Sunday brunch is nice- nothing fancy but lots of choices. It was an off season stay so it was quiet an relaxing. My daughter and I spent time on the 4th floor family room and we played checkers and read books. Great view of the Inn of Cape May from that room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a WONDERFUL WEEKEND EXPERIENCE!!!"
I had a wonderful time in a very nice, clean hotel and it was truly a great time, I walked the little shopping area at Washington Square and did a little shopping. I went to the Irish Store which is always a treat and then we had dinner at my favorite spot in the area which is the Lobster House. On Sunday we had breakfast and went back to Washington […] Square for a little while so that we could have a nice lunch at the Ugly Mug. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A good stay"
The hotel is in an excellent location across from the ocean and we had a great view of the ocean from our balcony. The room was very clean and had a nice well stocked kitchenette with dishes, pots, pans, flatware, coffee pot, etc. Bathroom was very clean and had sufficient towels and toiletries. Was hard to get belongings upstairs though because there […] is no ramp and only one entrance is accessible to the elevator. The restaurant staff service was not that attentive, but could have been short staffed due to the Christmas holiday. Free breakfast was a good perk. Would re-book here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is a dated building that is in need of some upgrades. Just some unusual things about the suite we stayed in- the ceiling fans were not in the center of the room, which was weird...the paint job in the bathroom did not cover up the old Pink paint that used to be there...the entry door had a horrible paint job on it. The rooms have cheap drop […] down "office style" ceilings. Having said all of this, I would still probably stay here again, as long as the price was right. We got an average deal, made better by the excellent free breakfast buffet, which had good hot foods, plus they also would make omelet's, French toast and pancakes. The omelet's are awesome. Staff was very nice, location is pretty much the best you can get in Cape May, across the street from the ocean and easy walking distance to the Washington Street mall. Just don't get too excited about arriving to a better than average room, because these are fairly average. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A good dog-friendly hotel at the beach"
The only dog-friendly hotel we could find in Cape May. Great location and very friendly and accomdating staff. Very good full breakfast included. Get at least a mini-suite or you will be claustrophobic in the room. The bedroom furnishings were nice. The living area furnishings were shabby and mismatched. Odd and inconvenient requirement of a $100 cash […] deposit as well as a $25 per night dog charge. Still we would probably return if traveling there with our dog.

Everything was good. The room was clean, the balcony and views were awesome, the kitchenette with small refrig microwave, coffee maker plates glasses utensils pots and pans was a nice touch. So the decor is a bit French Provincial over the top, it doesn't matter The room is clean, the bathroom has everything you want including good toiletries, the staff […] was very nice and the breakfast buffet, included in my expedia rate, was top notch. We had a suite with separate living room with a door you can close, we paid about $155 with tax on a late november weekend. Fancy? No but it was the best deal in Cape May on this particular weekend.

"miserable front desk grump"
The elderly grump at the front desk should be forced to take a course in customer relations, or retire! when we checked in at about 1 pm she informed us our room wasn't ready and she would call us on our cell when it was. We went for lunch and decided to check at the desk about our room since we had wanted to change into warmer clothes and take in the […] sights. Ms. Miserable informed us check in was at 4 pm . We took it on our own to change in the restrooms . She did not offer any explanation she did not direct us to the restrooms or any other areas we could possibility change our clothes in. 8 minutes after we left she called to say our room was ready. She could have checked on the room before we left, and she could have also told us about the breakfast buffet that was included which I found out about on my own when I went for coffee the next morning when the buffet was almost over. Overall the room was just ok for the price considering the off season rate of 200 per night. Looking at the in season rate of 500 a night and Ms. Miserable at the front desk I don't see how anybody would choose this place anytime during the year! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK Hotel close to the beach and mall"
The hotel appears somewhat quaint, but is really dated. The furniture is uncomfortable and the front door stuck to the point that it had to be opened or closed by pushing one's shoulder into it like a football player. The alarm clock did not work and although the front desk promised a wake-up call, none was ever made.Genuine Expedia guest review
Its hard to say about this hotel. First, we called early for a crib, was told it would be waiting in our room, but we have to pay 50.00 extra dollars for it. Thats a lot ! I thought, but worth the convenience. (Never stayed in a hotel that charged for a crib before) We arrive to the hotel tired at 10:00pm, and was told that there was no crib. They forgot […] to "order it from their supplier," and that if we can get it at all it will take an hour (an hour with a sleeping baby requires some on the go thinking...we did it). Front desk very rude about situation, like its somehow our fault, even though they had it right there that we ordered the crib. Crib came and two staff members put it together in a very nice and friendly way. The room itself. Strange....nice fixtures in bath a kitchen. recently redone. Old furniture, nothing to complain about. Dirty floors, they did not vacuum even though there is obviously sand from the beach. What makes it strange was that they had all of these staff on hand, like they are some kind of 5 star hotel, but overall maintenance and condition of the hotel is 2 stars. Why not put some of the money for staff into doing some kind of renovation and structural maintenance. Very close to the beach, wonderful view, GREAT beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach."
Great 3-day weekend with my 3 children (15, 12 and 9 years old). Nice outdoor pool. Comfortable beds. Microwave and fridge are nice touch. Every room has an ocean view. Great location. Restaurants, arcade, mini-golf are all easy 1-4 blocks walking distance. Would absolutely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Way overdue for a renovation but great location!"
Hotel is like traveling back in time...kinda! Victorian era decor is very tired with worn carpeting and furniture. That said, they do keep the place clean and the location is amazing providing stunning views of the Atlantic. Would not return because it is just not our style.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
