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

Opening the 2017 season with freshly renovated rooms and bathrooms, the property's beach-chic decor includes updated furnishings, carpet and flooring. Shack rooms include two queen beds, a sleeper sofa or two chairs and a kitchenette complete with refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. 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.

Traveling with my husband and 2 children. Rooms have been renovated since our last stay, and it was beautiful! So clean and comfortable. They no longer stock dishes and utensils in the room, except coffee mugs and glasses. Cape May restaurants leave a lot to be desired, so we always pack lunch and dinner. (Breakfast is always at Bella Vida, which is delicious, and only 0.7 mile walk from the hotel.) We asked if they had any paper plates and plastic utensils, and they actually delivered real plates, bowls and utensils for us to use. They also placed exterior dividers between rooms, so there is a feeling of privacy when you step out, and the guests next door are less likely to take your chairs. Overall, a great experience, and we will absolutely return.

The overall beach vibe. It was closer to a west coast feel but still fun.

The weather was cold and rainy every day except two; they are inflexible and do not give any refunds or even food vouchers to compensate - so in the end I paid 600$ for one off season stay

The size of the room, the parking (only enough for one car). I was told the room would accomodate 3 adults and 3 children.. Although it did, so to speak.. two of the adults had to share a pull out sofa with 2 children. I had a blow up mattress with me which could have alleviated the problem, however there was not an inch of extra space to accommodate it.
