We had a great family vacation. We had six rooms and all were comfortable. Great location, right across the street from the beach. We have been going down there for about six years and hope to go back next year.

The Heritage Inn recently renovated their sister location, The Heritage Southwinds, on Paterson Avenue. We recently stayed in a one bedroom suite at this location. We were very pleased with our room. The bedroom area had 2 full size beds & a TV. The separate sitting area had a second TV, ceiling fan, sofa, and table and chairs for having...

The friendly owner and her sons are helpful and welcoming. The room was as seen in picture - truth in advertising! It is basic and musty and could use some freshening and updating. The pool is small but adequate and surrounded by lounge chairs, although it could use more plants to hide the cars. The biggest problem was the extremely...

Thanks for your feedback and I do appreciate your suggestion about the plants. As for the mattresses, they were just replaced last year so are still considered to be new. As is typical some folks will find the mattresses soft, others will find the mattresses hard and some will find them just right. So we try to find a medium...

We've been coming here for over 20 years and there is a reason. The staff is wonderful. They will do everything within their power to make your stay a pleasant one. We booked a first floor room that normally did not have a microwave in it. We asked Gwen if she could get one for us. She said she did...

It is located in the heart of Cape May, directly across the street from the beach and within easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants and sites.This is not a four or five star hotel, however it was clean, comfortable and well maintained. There is a small unheated...

I have been to the Heritage in twice before, always wonderful stay. Just want to warn tourists to beware of the rooms in the breezeway that look at the concrete wall.

Thank you for your feedback with regards to your latest stay with us. The breezeway rooms are located in the back of the motel which is what you booked online and they do face the hallway, fortunately there is a sundeck on the 4th floor that allows everyone the opportunity to view the entire beachfront area.

My husband and I go to Cape May at least every other year. We couldn't get a reservation at our usual place. I searched the internet and found Heritage Inn. I liked the location.

The room was clean and reasonably quiet. The roms on each for share a common walking area so keeping the blinds closed is something of a necessity. Fortunately there wasn't much foot traffic on the third floor. There's a very nice deck area on the top of the billing that provides a nice evening breeze and good viewing. Great for...
