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.

Rooms were nice looking but property itself was badly maintained. Trash in the stairwells, pool, and common areas.
Other Comments
Property was in disarray. Lukewarm shower. Hotel would benefit from being seasonal rather than year-round.

Other Comments
Was charged too much. But called travel zoo and will see if we have our credit in a few days. We were there earlier in the season and I think they got the two charges mixed up.

The closeness to the beach, the clean room, their accommodation on the first level for us
Other Comments
They should have some thing on the tub to avoid slips and also a hand rail to get out of the tub.
