Cape May Trip
The Periwinkle Inn is located right across the street from the beach and promenade in the central part of Cape May, NJ. The room was clean and well appointed with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee pot and a newly renovated bathroom. The Inn has two nicely sized swimming pools which we didn't want to use as we visited during October. It is well located for exploring Cape May, and, especially important, has parking for the busy and crowded summer months.

Lovely place to stay
Clean, pretty, excellent view of the beach from our 3rd floor balcony. Cushy queen beds, appreciated the elevator for getting our luggage up and down. Right in the middle of beautiful Cape May, perfect location for sightseeing around this charming town. Bathroom was on the small side, which could be a problem for some people, but we handled it just fine. Enjoyed the pretty courtyard. Was nice there was a sandbox, play area, and kiddie pool for families that travel with little ones. We were on the go so much of the time, and the outdoor pool wasn't didn't partake in swimming. Overall we had a wonderful time.

Nice but doors slam
Motel was clean and updated. Loved the kichenette. Could have used a light there. One negative. Despite their being few visitors, someone was staying right next door. Had to listen to their doors slamming. Other than that it was quiet.

Beachfront & very clean!
We really enjoyed our stay. The room was very, very clean and newly refurbished. Beachfront and close to several restaurants. Across the street from a beach entrance and also at the end of the promenade in Cape May, which is great for bike riding or walks. We napped in the afternoon and put out our "do not disturb" sign. The maid thoughtfully made a bag of clean towels and toiletries for us which she tied to the doorknob. Also, the pool was still open through September 24! It was a bit chilly, but it was still fun to take a dip. We would stay there again.

Ocean Front getaway
Exceptional accommodations with exceptional service. Newly renovated hotel with every amenity for beach front experience. Restaurants in walking distance. Trolley service to get into the quaint town of Cape May. Cape May is very friendly, and not overly developed like some east coast beaches.
