    Beachfront motel in colorful Cape May
    Quiet, clean, and comfortable; nicely updated with soothing light blue walls and colorful carpeting. Liked the upper floor outdoor chairs facing the beach with privacy barriers separating each room. We had the beach "shack" suite -- king bedroom in the back with privacy door, bathroom in middle, and living area with queen sleeper sofa in front. Room was a little on the narrow side, but adequate. Heating worked well. Beach is just across the street, and we had a decent view of the ocean from our room. Pricey though on the last day of our 3-night stay (Friday after Thanksgiving). Outdoor stairway lighting was not adequate at night.

    Great place, great views.
    Very nice stay, only complaint was that we arrived to find we had to go to another location to check in, as the office was closed (at 6:30 pm).
