Family of 4 stayed in a standard room. This is a great location across the street from the beach and close to many stores and restaurants. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Ample parking with lot attendant. It has great views and a nice pool with plenty of seating available. The room itself was a bit dated...

I traveled here with my family on May of 2014 and we had one of our best vacations ever! We stayed in a "family efficiency" which was great for our family of four. We were able to eat breakfast in the room and the adults got the bedroom and the kids shared the fold-out couch. The room was very clean...

I normally don't like to review, but i also don't like to feel annoyed while on vacation. I had been anxious to stay here as we frequent the restaurant a lot when visiting. Upon arriving we were placed in a room with no sunlight, at the top of the stairs, in front of the ice machine..oh hell no! Not for...

I'm so happy I found the Beach Shack! I've never vacationed on the Jersey Shore but my family (me, my husband and 9 year old son) were need of a sunshiny, relaxing time and we were not going to find that out in the Hamptons so we took a chance and booked the Beach Shack. I'm so glad we did!!!...

The hotel is average. Nothing special. It is across the street from the beach and is reasonable priced for Cape May. The rooms are nothing fancy. Housekeeping prepares the room well for new arrivals, however the daily housekeeping is below average. They didn't refill the empty tissue box until asked, they didn't replace the paper towels until asked, the sheets...

The Beach Shack was just okay. I was told there were no Handicapped parking places and the rooms/grounds are not handicapped accessible. I thought all motels had to have some handicapped parking places. The WiFi only worked in the restaurant or at the pool but not in the rooms.The decor is dated and needs some updating. For the price, it...

Spent last weekend in Cape May and just loved it. The beach was beautiful and spending time at the Beach Shack was a very friendly family oriented experience! They even have dog friendly rooms. The staff were all very professional, positive, and helpful. Had several delicious meals at the Rusty Nail as well. The service was excellent and I enjoyed...

If it weren't for the beach chairs/umbrellas and the helpful and courteous staff I would give zero stars. We loved the idea of taking our family vacation in Cape May at a family friendly resort. Unfortunately the Beach Shack was not at all what we had hoped for. We stayed from Saturday 8/9 until Wed 8/13 for around $400 per...

Other than the location, which is prime, that's where it ended for us. Service at the restaurant was awful!! Slow, slow and slow! No phones in the room to order room service and their wifi wouldn't let us on so there was no cell phone service! They told me to leave the restaurant at 10pm because I had a 3...

Just returned from an excellent vacation in Cape May but the Beach Shack was very underwhelming for the price they charge.I stayed in Room 320 which was recommended by one of the reviews and I would not recommend this room.The 3rd floor is fantastic as far as the ocean views but my view was obstructed by the roof of the...
