The Chalfonte: "Very Victorian" Top 5 Page for this destination Ocean City Hotel Tip by Rhondaj

Ocean City Hotels: 14 reviews and 12 photos


Located in the historic, victorian area of Cape May. The Chalfonte gives you the feel of being in the past. Your room doesn't have a phone or television! We also didn't have any air-conditioning, just a ceiling fan. It was nice to hear the clip-clopping of the horses from the carriage tours pass by every half hour or so. My husband, who likes modern amenities, did not like this place at all. (especially sharing the bathroom with others)

Unique Qualities: If you have small children, you are placed in a separate area (in the back!) of the hotel. So as not to upset the ears of the other genteel patrons I suppose..
Also the children are not allowed to eat in the main dining room. There is a separate dining area for children.
In summation, if tots annoy you, you'd probably like staying at the Chalfonte!
