We arrived at the Beach Shack early on Friday morning. We were able to leave our car in the parking lot, use the restaurant, bathrooms, and the beach before we checked in at 4:00 pm, essentially giving us extra time. They were so accommodating! The beach is directly across the street, a very short walk. The Rusty Nail was a...

We enjoyed our stay, and they were very helpful at the front desk. We didn't like our assigned room due to the view, and they moved us to another room. That said, you can ignore any review done in 2016 since they are renovating the place starting in October. I wouldn't get a lower room being the Rusty Nail restaurant,...

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....

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...
