11 BEACH AVENUE, CAPE MAY, NJ 08204(800) 732-7816

Welcome to the Sandpiper Beach Club

The Sandpiper Beach Club is the perfect hotel solution for travelers who love the beach and Cape May and want a little more space to stretch out and savor the seashore, especially for longer visits. Perched right near the beach, the Sandpiper is a unique beach hotel, offering large one and two bedroom condominiums featuring fully equipped kitchens, living rooms and an appealing residential vibe. It’s the ideal choice for couples looking for that real beach house feel or families who need the convenience of extra room and a place to whip up a quick breakfast before the beach.
What separates the Sandpiper from any other condominium hotel in Cape May (or anywhere else for that matter) are the wonderful extras that make staying there like staying at an upscale hotel. You’ll love the stylish design and amenities, like our beautiful heated swimming pool, where you can relax and enjoy the same lunch that is offered on the beach menu. Work out at our expansive fitness center, enjoy daily housekeeping service and a full-service concierge who can help you with any aspect of your Cape May stay. Ask our concierge about some of the savings on events and activities around town when you book with us. As a part of Cape Resorts, the Sandpiper offers its signing privileges at all Cape Resorts amenities properties, including Sea Spa, Blue Pig Tavern, Rusty Nail and Ebbitt Room.
Each of the one and two bedroom suites offers a breezy, seashore vibe that you’ll love. Fun, sophisticated accents and a sunny palate provide the perfect environment to wake up to in the morning or to enjoy a post-beach snooze. With beautiful views of the ocean from almost every one of the 51 suites, you’ll be able to enjoy the beach just as well from your private balcony or living room as when you have your toes in the sand.
If a stay at the Sandpiper Beach Club wasn’t already enjoyable in its own right, be sure to stop by our sister hotels just a few steps away, including Congress Hall, home of the Blue Pig Tavern and The Sea Spa and the Beach Shack, home to Cape May’s best beach bar and live-music venue—The Rusty Nail.
