My husband and I have stayed here many times over the years. It is a very clean and neat place and we are never disappointed. You can see the ocean from your balcony and watch the dolphins play in the surf most any day. The staff are friendly and have great recommendations. My husband and I have been going there...

Clean updated rooms with mini fridge and a microwave. This was perfect as we have two little kids. It was across from the beach. Pool was very nice. Kids enjoyed swimming. There was a kiddie pool as well as a playground for kids with a sandpit and toys.

Excellent hotel. Clean modern rooms, directly across from beach and easy walk to dining and shopping. Private balcony with ocean view was an added bonus. We were upgraded at no charge, but probably because it was the last weekend of the season. Would stay here again.

Tucked away on the far end of Beach Avenue, this little inn is a hidden jewel. We stayed in unit A which is an efficiency loft w/a balcony overlooking the beach. The downside to this unit was the bathroom's located on the 1st floor. It makes midnight bathroom trips a long walk from the 2nd floor. Otherwise, the beds were...

It's the little pink inn on the Promenade and it's a perfect place for a Cape May getaway. The black/white and pink motif is just charming and the grounds are manicured and well maintained. The pool was crystal clear and inviting. Check in was easy and we were given dining recommendations and lit on events and restaurants upon arrival. The...

We came to the Periwinkle Inn on a last minute decision to head down to the shore. The hotel we had gone to before was booked. I checked online booking accommodations and the Periwinkle was full.

We usually stay in the middle of town in Cape May but all our favorites were booked. I thought we would take a gamble and stay a little bit outside the town. The Periwinkle turned our vacation around. It's in the perfect spot on Beach that is close to the mall and restaurants and very easy access to the beach....

We have stayed at the Periwinkle many times through the years and have always been consistently very pleased! The renovated rooms are very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. The towel creations were an added enjoyment! The room was clean and housekeeping was efficient. My only concern was that the shower curtain smelled musty. We will certainly go back again next year!

Customer service is severely lacking at this place! I cannot even call this a hotel! Note, if you read all of the bad reviews, they are all in reference to the people running this place. They are rude and rough around the edges with no class. They are more focused on proving you are wrong, as opposed to making customers...
