The Chalfonte Experience

The Chalfonte is a traditional seashore hotel unlike any other in historic Cape May. For generations, guests have returned for the Chalfonte's unique charm and simplistic ambiance. Here are some of the experiences our guests have shared:

Comfortable, and felt like home.

-Sierra Wickman, Wyckoff, NJ

I like meeting the people, old timers, who have been here many times. The stories are great. Everyone's friendly. I like that there is no TV…no phone. Comfortable, relaxing…

-Jane Wenger, Chicago, IL

I have been coming to the Chalfonte since before I was even old enough to remember… The Chalfonte isn't just a hotel; it's an experience, a part of our family, and a wonderful tradition."

-Julia Schast, Elkins Park, PA

We loved the old-fashioned charm and warm staff…we like the simple living, which touches the past.

-The Harringtons

Clean, friendly, lovely accommodations. We loved the front porch and the location to the beach and town was fantastic.

-Mary & Peter Chenevert, Red Hook, NY

We love the mild air conditioning…the breeze on (the) front porch is exquisite.

- Carol Baca, Media, PA

After coming to the Chalfonte for many years it is refreshing to know that everything is being done to maintain the old world charm of this special place.

-Claire Neger, St. Elkin's Park, PA

Part of the beauty of the Chalfonte is that it stays the same. For years we've come to Cape May (like since the 1950s) and we always come back to the same place. In these times of uncertainty and change, it is comforting and reassuring to return to the same lovely place.
