This is a hotel right on Beach St., across from the ocean. Perfect location in Cape May; close to everything, food, shopping, etc. We were a family of 5, staying in a 2 room suite. It was wonderful; large spacious rooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, coffee maker, full size fridge. We especially appreciated the well stocked bathroom, with extra towels, Kleenexes...

We have visited Cape May over a dozen times over the last 25 years (we were married there in 1992), and in that time we have stayed in several oceanfront hotels there. The rooms at the Grand were clean and comfortable, the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, and the restaurant served good quality food at fairly reasonable prices....

The rooms are clean, updated and have excellent bedding and mattresses... even the pull out bed was comfortable. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. The restaurant on premise has very good food with a well done breakfast buffet in the morning. Pool area was bright and clean with a patio bar and fresh towels for your convenience. We just loved...

My wife and I had decided to take a four day getaway to our favorite beach town of Cape May New Jersey. Since this was a last minute decision we found that most hotels and B & B's were already booked, with this being the height of their season. Fortunately, we were able to obtain a reservation at The Grand...

My husband and I just returned from a four night stay and had a wonderful time at the Grand. The staff is always pleasant and can't do enough for you. We had a king room on fourth floor with ocean views and the room was extremely clean and the housekeeping staff dioes a great job. The bed was extremely comfortable...

After staying in a small room last year, we decided to book one of their best rooms at close to $400/night. The room was large and included a small kitchen that was fine. The bathroom was standard, not much for the $400/night cost. The good part of the room was the terrace view. We could see the ocean and watch...

The rooms, while spacious and clean (we stayed in a two-story suite and the extra space was appreciated), were your average beach motel quality. The location, right off the beach, is hard to beat, however, as is the great indoor pool. Food in hotel restaurant also good but average.

We just returned from a three day stay at the Grand. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect based on the reviews posted here, and am always a little suspicious when I see an overly positive or negative review. What I can say about the Grand was..it met our expectations. We wanted a clean, comfortable room near the beach, and...

Four of us stayed at this hotel from 6/29/15 & 7/1/15. My advice is if your are thinking of staying there, keep looking. You can do much better.

We stayed here for my Aunt's beach wedding. We had a 3rd floor ocean-view room with a great view of the beach! The room wasn't as updated as I would have thought they would be. The air conditioning broke in room, took three calls to guest services to get repaired. The pool facilities and staff are nice. Wish a beach...

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