    Very Good 8.0
    This is a very clean property directly across the street from the beach. The owner and staff are very nice and and helpful. The pool is clean and lovely; however it closes at 6:00 PM, so if you get off the beach and would like a dip, you’re out of luck at 6. There are quite a few rules, and if you smoke, you’re out of luck, even on your balcony. It’s also quite pricey.

    Great Stay
    This hotel was in a great location - across the road from the beach/beach access. It was convenient to restaurants (pizza, lobster rolls, ice cream, breakfast place literally next door) and close to shops. Bicycle rental also next door. The room itself was very clean and a good size. We had 2 queen beds, table and chairs, and a couch. Room had a refrigerator. Coffee and bagels were available outside the lobby in the morning. (They may have a bigger breakfast but this was COVID time.) Our family would definitely stay here again.

    Nice and Noisy
    The Avondale is well situated in Cape May. The beach and promenade is across the street. Restaurants, bars, tours, and the historic downtown area are within walking distance. And the lighthouse, Nature center, and Higby beach are a short drive away. Our 2 night stay started early as our room was ready when we arrived in town around Noon. Room was clean and comfortable except for the noisy air conditioner. It didn't matter which setting we put it on, the noise was intrusive. We could hear the tv well enough if we put it loud, but you couldn't ignore the fan noise. For sleeping, I used ear plugs. A continental breakfast is served for 2 hours starting at 8 AM.
