Had a great 4 day getaway stay here! just returned from here and found right from the start the staff was very pleasant. Easy check in went up to a spotless room overlooking the ocean. The grounds, and pool are immaculate, and it's within walking distance or a short drive to everything. Look forward to going back!

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd fl with ocean front views,

Just returned from our 4 day stay at this beautiful hotel. We had a second floor balcony room directly facing the ocean. The room itself was beautiful and impeccably clean. One thing I do not like about vacation is an uncomfortable bed and awful pillows. Well, you can not say that at all about this hotel. The bed was super comfy with the best pillows and linens.
Located just beyond the end of the boardwalk, it is just steps to the beach and in a quiet area of town.
The property is just beautiful and well maintained. We enjoyed a few tomatoes from the pretty garden planted along the fence. Guests are encouraged to help themselves to the herbs and tomatoes!
The staff is outstanding and very helpful which can be rare these days.
We will absolutely make a repeat stay when we return to Cape May!

This pretty pink hotel with black and white striped awnings was the perfect spot for a weekend with friends. Friendly staff who provided great restaurant recommendations, clean rooms, and nice pool made this a great stay. Room was large enough for four of us to be comfortable and not cramped. Microwave and fridge in room and balcony overlooking pool with view toward ocean. Pricing about the same as other hotels during high season. No onsite restaurant or bar but plenty within walking distance. Ample parking. Nice lawn area. Yes I'd go back!

The periwinkle was a great hotel . The room was well sized with a double bed and a single . What I found very clever was a small partitioning which made the single bed feel more private . The bathroom and room were immaculate . The outside pool was also very clean and I had some good fun in it . There were only two minor problems , there was no room service or on sight food and I found the pool opened quite late and closed early .
