My boyfriend and I stayed at the Heritage Inn for three nights and had a third floor room. We arrived before our room was ready, but the owner let us utilize their parking lot while we waited. The room was exactly what we needed; clean, comfortable, and the air conditioning worked great. The best thing about this hotel was the...

The only thing that beats the location is the exceptional service provided by the owners and their staff. Our recent trip was our fourth visit to the Heritage and each time we arrive we are glad to be back. The rooms well kept, the pool clean and the roof deck views are terrific.

My husband and I were looking to get away to Cape May for a few nights. The Heritage Inn is centrally located, across the street from the Promenade and the beach and just a few very walkable blocks to the Washington Mall. We parked the car on Thursday and didn't move it again until we left on Saturday morning. Plenty...

We stayed here early in the summer for an affordable weekend getaway. Our favorite part about this place was the convenient location. We walked or biked everywhere - never got in the car once all weekend. It's just right in the middle of everything. The staff was accommodating, our room simple and clean. We would come back for sure!

We had a great stay, rooms were clean, beach was 100 feet away, walk to grocery and good restaurants. Parking available and it's kid friendly with a reasonable pool. Got a serenade from the steel drum guy near the convention center one evening. We'd stay here again.

After returning from my second stay at The Heritage Inn I still have the same opinion…it was great. Granted, it does not offer some of the more elegant, upgraded amenities of the larger inns however, if you are looking for cleanliness and friendliness in the very best of locations - all at an affordable rate I suggest you try The...

The property is fine. The owners and staff are very friendly. And the rooms are ok. Things are a little dated but hey it's Cape May. The issue me and my family had is the guests and their cigarette smoke. You are not allowed to smoke in the rooms (which I appreciate) so all of the smokers (and there did...

The Heritage is located right across the street from the beach and close to numerous restaurants. It’s a 3-story building with exterior hallways. There’s a small pool and a rooftop deck. The deck has many chaise lounges but there are no umbrellas or canopies for shade. Only go up there if you want to be pan fried. Similarly there is...
