Not worth the money. Long check in line and place has a mildew smell in the hallways and lobby area. No coffee pot in the room either. The pool was good but the place is old and impersonal. I have had better in Cape May for less money.

Dear frank r, Thank you for choosing us for your recent visit to Cape May. We do appreciate your business. As with every guest who stays with us our goal is to exceed their expectations to hopefully add them to our list of many happy repeat customers. The Grand Hotel would not be successful now or continue in the future...

Overall a great time. Hotel was clean, pool was fun. Hemingways was extremely delightful for breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. The one negative was that the pillows were horrible. Bring your own. Bill the steel drum guy knew how to get the crowd going.

We stayed in room 328. We had no view but was supposed to be a partial ocean view. The halls and stairwells smelled so awful I held my nose every time I left my room. The smell gave me a headache and it was hard for me to breath from all the mold. The location was perfect but not worth...

The only good thing, in my opinion, was the room was able to accommodate 2 adults and 2 teens and was in decent condition. However, the sink stopper didn't work and the towels were like sandpaper on your skin. Laundry detergent machines didn't work or were out of detergent. The hallway to our room smelled pretty bad. It's obvious the...

We needed a place to stay over Columbus weekend in the Cape May area. We have holidayed in Cape May for 40 years, since childhood, and passed by this hotel without a second look. But that has now changed! We were treated like special guests when we stayed, by the staff. They accommodated us needing to extend our stay and...

We stayed in the newer section of hotel. Poor night's sleep, beds were uncomfortable, lighting was poor, could hear toddler's feet in upper room, balconies very small for sitting. The staff was very nice and accommodating, and dinner in the restaurant was very good. The outdoor pool was very clean and a good size for crowds. Grand Hotel in Wildwood...

Room with NO view! very disappointed, we had a balcony that was closed off with a window that faced a wall. There was no Ocean View. I booked this vacation in May, plenty of time ahead to get me into a decent room. I paid $1400 for 5 nights for a King room. When I told the staff that I...

Me and my boyfriend were looking for an affordable place to stay for a night and the grand had the most reasonable price in the area. The receptionists were very friendly. The hotel seemed old and the room needed updating as well. The room had a couch, queen bed, desk, mini fridge and a closed in porch with a view...

“Kids above us were running around until late. The more-expensive 2-story suites on the upper floors would alleviate this drawback.”
