The hotel is good for the family --close to beach and roomy. It is clean and comfortable (no luxury). We had a 2 nicely sized bedrooms, livings room , one bath...

Excellent customer service from management, maintanence to maid service. There was a decrease in the maid services this year and yoyu can really see the difference. I hope this does not affect the client satisfaction and service for the future.

Found this place on TripAdvisor and once again you all steered me right. The hotel was just right for our family weekend--close to beach and roomy. Certainly not upscale with any presence of luxury but clean and comfy (although our mattress could get retired soon). We had a 2 bedroom, one bath. Nice sized living room and kitchen and little...

I've reviewed Summer Station before and have been staying here for 17 June vacations...so I must like it, right? Yes, it is very family friendly, great views of the beach and lovely pool area. I am becoming increasingly concerned about the staff at the hotel. It seems that this year they have one maid responsible for each floor...yes, one maid!...

A friend and I enjoy having space. We had previously stayed for 15 yrs. in B & B's in Cape May and read a review of Summer Station. We stopped by last year to check it out and actually stayed there for 3 nights in June of 2012. It is a unique set up in that it is a condo...

We stayed at Summer Station for the 2nd year in a row for a girls weekend at the beach. We requested something other than the first floor and ocean view. We stayed on the 4th floor and our condo was very nice. We had all the amenities in the kitchen you could want with the exception of dish washing detergent....

Just got back from an anniversary weekend, March 30-April 1, 2012. Our Summer Station condo was spacious, immaculate, well-appointed, and comfortable, even the bed. We had a side-view E-suite. The view from the front of our unit was mediocre, and the view from the adorable porch was non-existent, but it was ickky weather so it didn't matter. There is ample...

we enjoy a winter retreat to the beach each year. we especially enjoy the hospitality of the staff at Summer Station. The units are clean, have the essentials and we can just chill out. It is conveniently located on the beach and a quick 10 minute walk to the mall. would highly recommend top floor facing the ocean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A tradition of luxury and elegance has been found in Cape May since before the turn of the century, and now Summer Station is part of that tradition. With an imposing facade that blends with the stately Victorian homes, and accommodations that offer a gracious vacation lifestyle. The inviting sandy beach is just steps from your door; or you may prefer the sparkling water of our pool with surrounding sundeck. ... more   less
