More Room Types

Deemed the “kicky kid brother” to its cousin Congress Hall (NJ Monthly), The Beach Shack is an oceanfront boutique motel. Its popular alfresco bar, The Rusty Nail, serves up cold beverages and seaside favorites such as oysters and fresh fish.

This vintage-fresh property is ideal for families, with several rooms accommodating many guests with separate sleeping areas and kitchenettes featuring refrigerators, microwaves and cupboards of essential utensils. Rent one of the many brightly colored cabanas that dot the beach, or enjoy the ocean breeze on the pool deck.

At the southernmost tip of New Jersey, Cape May is one of the oldest oceanside resort communities in the country. The charming town is filled with mini-golf courses, arcades, taffy shops, custard stands, antique stores and restaurants.
