Not the fanciest place. Clean and friendly. Met our needs perfectly. We heard about this from other coast Guard families. This is not a holiday inn type but you will not be disappointed. Very clean - Lena miller really made our stay. Couple of problems and she fixed them!

We have recently retired and our stop in Cape May (09/07/2014) is the beginning of our self-styled "Beaches of the World" tour. Franco and Lena ( and the little boy!) are so real and welcoming. The staff was warm, friendly and honestly helpful. We received a call from Lena before we got out of town, letting us know they had... More

We spent a wonderful 4 days at the Blue Fish Inn celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Franco and Lena have decorated the inn beautifully for the fall season and as always were very helpful in finding places to eat and things to see. We are looking forward to our next visit! Thanks so much!

The Blue Fish Inn is very comfortable, clean and quaint. The landscape and outside of the Motel is very neat and colorful. The inside is also neat and colorful with two double beds, a nice size bathroom for a motel and a wonderful size kitchen. You need to supply your own paper, cleaning... products for the kitchen but it has... More

This is the second time we stayed at the Blue Fish Inn. While not fancy, it's clean, convenient and has a pleasant atmosphere. I like that it's an easy walk to the pedestrian mall (although we didn't walk this time) and it's got some of the best prices for the area. We got a room with a kitchen so we... More

We stayed at the Blue Fish Inn for one night while visiting Cape May on a family vacation - largely on the strength of prior TripAdvisor reviews. It's an old-school motel, and despite the evident attention given to a lot of the details by the ownership and the generally excellent (albeit by its nature limited) service, there's no mistaking the...

I stayed here with a friend for a Labor Day beach get-away. The hotel wasn't right on the beach, but was fairly easy walking distance and was far more affordable than anything right on the beach. Also, the hotel had an arrangement with people renting chairs and umbrellas at the beach, so we got those for free but didn't have... More

All previous reviews did not disappoint. All out service from the friendly staff, and a warm welcome from Lina. Cleanliness is top of my family's list and we were impressed. I like the spot is a little away from the beach so we had some slow time with neighbors and the neighborhood. When we needed action we walked to Washington... More
