The oldest continuously operating hotel in Cape May, the historic Chalfonte is set in a Victorian building that has been open since 1876. Tucked down a quiet side street, not too far from the beach, the hotel features spacious guestrooms and suites. The Bridal and Presidential Suites both provide a two-bedroom setting with king and queen beds, while the Satterfield Cottage is a four-bedroom cottage rental, all best suited for families who want to enjoy a Victorian B&B with kids. Meal plans are available, from the European Plan that includes a full breakfast daily, or the Modified American Plan that includes full breakfast and three-course dinner daily in the Magnolia Room restaurant.

Spent 2 nights at Chalfonte in room directly over the bar, Fri. night live music with amps, second night a lot of loud revelry.. until midnight...
Two nights with little sleep.. I talked to front desk and was simply told that they were fully booked... no concern whatsoever...
The walls are paper thin.. obviously the toilet in room next door was right next to wall of my room. When man in that room got up in middle of the night for “bathroom visit”,
It sounded like he was in my room.... sooooo gross!
And every time I was in room and people next door visited the loo, I was a witness.. Really!
This place is anything but charming.
With so many lovely places in Cape May with lovely amenities and cordial staff, no need to stay where there is little concern for guests.
I have stayed at the Southern Quarters owned by Chelfonte Hotel a total of fours nights, the last two consecutive. Everytime I have stayed I have had to go back to the other building and ask for things that should have been in my room. Everytime housekeeping doesnt leave something, washclothes, soap, tissues, etc. Yesterday they didnt even bother to remove my used bath towel.
