    We really enjoyed our stay at the Heritage Inn. The room was clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel is perfect! It is right across the street from the beach. It is also a short walk to the quaint stores and restaurants. We did not even need to use the car our entire stay. Highly recommended!

    location. reasonable rate.

    short on amenities. operators owned dogs/cats which left an unbearable smell in the office area.

    The location is perfect...just across the street from the beach and convention center. It is an older motel that has been kept up very well. Our room had been renovated and was like new. The price was very reasonable. Since it was during the Thanksgiving holidays, there was little staff available; however, we did not need them.

    We were on the third floor, and there is no elevator. Fortunately, we did not need one, but anyone needing help getting up stairs would have difficulty at this facility.

    The hotel room was neat, the bed was comfortable. It seemed that it was renovated in recent years. A microwave and tiny fridge and sink were available. We didn't use the small TV. It's location across the street from the convention center and the ocean was nice, and convenient for the Cape May Birding Festival, which was great in spite of ending early due to the super storm.

    The hotel had vacancies when we checked in but they gave us a room down a dark outdoor hallway with no view. We asked for a better room but were told that the better rooms had been booked in advance for later that weekend. It was not apparent to me that the hotel ever filled up, but we had a poor room location for our 3 nights stay.

    It was clean and in a good location.

    There was no elevation. We had to carry lugguage to the third floow which was tough.

    Room was clean and comfortable. Location to beach, boardwalk, restaurants and local shops was excellent. Everything was walking distance and convenient. Owners were very pleasant and made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay the best experience.

    There was no phone in the room or a pamphlet with information such as checkout time.

    Location could not be beat.

    It needs to be updated. The room smells like a bungalow from the 50's.

    Location and pool.

    It was very dark. Outlets did not work, lights did not work. It was musty smelling. The room had to be aired out after being cleaned each day. I might recommend the Heritage Inn to others.

    The location.

    However the room was much less than desireable for $245/night. The tv was old and the picture fuzzy, the furniture in bad shape (the desk in particular) the tissue holder box was rusted and in need of paint/replacement and the bothtub caulking was missing or needing replacement. Also the handle on the toilet was not working properly and therefore difficult to flush. There was no bath mat in the tub and when showering we ran out of hot water 2 times in one shower!!! There was and still is a dispute on the charge for the room..........other than that it was ok......LOL!!! We advised the owner of these things and she said we should have told her about them upon check-in however who wants a repair man in there room at who knows what time and for how long? Management need to make themselves aware of these things before renting the room.

    I loved the location. The outside of the building was adorable and fit in with the location. The rooms were spacious and clean. There were two chairs outside everyone's room where you could relax and watch the views. Parking was great even though it was around the corner. There were three people in the office, two were very nice and helpful.

    For the cost of the room,the furniture in the rooms were horrible,old and rickety. Our blanket had a big hole in it. All we got were towels and 3 bars of dial soap in the bathroom. There were no little bottles of shampoo which we really needed since I forgot my husbands shampoo. When we asked for some they said they did not provide those things!! The light fixture above the table was filthy.
