Then this is the place for you. Typical Motel, but this one allows Digs, not to far of a walk from the main area of Cape May. Let's face it, this place is used to sleep and that's it. If you want tea or a b&b, then buck up and stay at the Congress Hotel or a property owned and... More

Our family visited the Blue Fish Inn again this year along with our dog. Franco and Lena continue to be great hosts. The cleaning staff take great care in the cleaning of our room on a daily basis. The complimentary morning breakfast treats was a great way to start the day. The pool was great, clean and refreshing. The Inn... More

We had to reschedule three different times when our son's US Coast Guard graduation was pushed back. The ever-patient Lena was unflappable, rebooking us each time. Lena and Franco run a nice place that is well appointed and sparklingly clean. Whatever you need - corkscrew, iron, etc - they cheerfully supplied. Even the housekeeping staff was unfailingly polite and cheerful.... More

You can keep those big, expensive hotels on the beach. Glad we found the Blue Fish Inn. The owners take pride in this quaint, 12–room motel in the historic district of Cape May. Only a few minutes to walk to the beach or to the Washington Square Mall. It is truly a diamond in the rough!!!!! A gal pal of... More

This little motel in the heart of Cape May won my heart with their simplicity and good taste. A person could think there's nothing special about a small, one story motel like this. On a bird workshop with a friend, we stayed two nights, and were very comfortable. The room was scrupulously clean, and very inviting. Good bed, bathroom sparkling,... More
