Get Away: Lokal Hotel
This Cape May destination is like a cross between an Airbnb and a beachy boutique hotel.
Opened in Cape May, New Jersey in the summer of 2019, Lokal Hotel is an intriguing cross between an Airbnb (self check-in and spacious) and a beachy-chic boutique hotel (excellent “invisible service” by text and iPad, or in-person by request). To help guests feel at home, each of the eight apartment-style suites includes a dining area and ample amenities, from beach bags, Yeti coolers and beach towels, to a kitchen stocked with coffee from Out There Coffee, a local shop.
Two rooms have ocean views; all have comfortable porch seating. The heated saltwater pool is open past Labor Day. During beach season, a service attendant sets up umbrellas and lounge chairs on the beach across the street (including on weekends in September). Additional chairs and umbrellas are available on-site for use in the offseason. Rates begin at $744 and drop to $411 per night after Labor Day.
