Have been staying at the Victorian, mostly 'off season,' most every year past decade. Well maintained- always super clean rooms- friendly staff- and incredibly helpful owner (who this time directed us to reliable garage when we had a bit of a car issue- SO appreciated). Excellent location- and value. Highly recommend.

The Victorian Motel is located at the end of the Washington Street Mall in the middle of historic Cape May. They are the most centrally located spot in Cape May, one block from the beach. Their location is ideal because you can park your car, walk down the lovely Washington Street Mall to shop the many unique stores, or simply... More

M & J T This was our 2nd time staying at the Victorian and we have already booked Labor Day Weekend. We have been coming to Cape May for 15 years and tried many of the hotels. The Victorian was our newest find and it is one of the best. One could not ask for a better location, better rate... More

had such a nice time at the Victorian, this has been our 4 or 5th time there during the winter. This has definitely been the coldest weather we have ever had there, but we stayed toasty warm in our room. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable and the location is central to many shops and restaurants. Will be staying... More

The Victorian Motel has great location in the heart of Cape May, but the best part is the people. They really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The rooms were clean and in great shape. I like giving my business to people who care about providing excellent customer service.

The Victorian Motel is by far the best place to stay in Cape May. The rates, staff, room, pool are all great but the location is even better. This is our third year going to the motel and we're never disappointed. Perfect for a family vacation, our kids love it!!

My wife and I stayed at the Victorian New Years Week and were very pleased with our stay. John, the GM, was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable with plenty of towels! It is hard to beat the location; Directly across from the mall, Congress Hall and walking distance to the beach. If you are looking... More

We had 14 people in our group and everyone was very happy with the accomadations. My husband and I made the trip down to Cape May in late October to find a place to stay. We had stayed here once before and found it to be easy to get around without taking our car everywhere. We hoped everyone would be... More

Victorian motel is NOT Victorian but it IS a well-kept motel with economical prices, clean rooms, an elevator, and a very helpful, friendly proprietor. It is right in the center of Cape May, convenient to explore the town and its architecture on foot, to visit its many restaurants, and to take healthful exercise on the beach and boardwalk.

Great place at the foot of the pedestrian mall. So convenient and close/within walking distance to everything. Rooms are spotless and updated. We had an efficiency with a kitchenette, dining table couch and a separate bedroom with two full size beds. Great view of mall and Congress Hall. Walk to the beach. In the summer they have a pool and... More
