Franco & Lena are great hosts. The housekeeping staff are very friendly & do a great job. It is very nice & affordable too. This was our first stay but we met many regulars who come back & they were all very friendly....if you sit on the front rockers & talk, you'll get to know everyone and all the dog... 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

If you're looking for a comfortable spot that's a little less expensive than other Cape May hotels, the Blue Fish is a great choice. The hotel is 5 short blocks from the beach, and the walk takes you through a very nice residential neighborhood. No need to bring chairs or umbrellas; these are supplied at the beach, courtesy of the... More

So glad we found Franco and the Blue Fish Inn! Such a hospitable, comfortable place. We were fortunate enough to get a room last minute here on Labor Day weekend, it was the last available room and was perfect! My 3 kids loved the pool and the breakfast (so great to see healthy and tasty options and delicious coffee). We... More

A group of girlfriends and I stayed at The Bluefish Inn for a long weekend (bachelorette weekend). The rooms were adorable and very comfortable. The beds were very comfortable too (a rare thing for many small hotels). I would definitely consider renting here again in the future.

I stayed here the last two nights and this inn was very quiet, serene, and clean! I brought my dog with me and there is a nice little park a block in a half away. The room was excellent, and the beds were very comfortable, can't wait to visit again.......

Well, let me start by saying this trip was planned at the very last minute. I checked on TripAdvisor to see how the ratings were for a few places to stay. Now with that said, I spoke to a very friendly woman named Lena on the telephone. I was wondering about availability for a room for 2 nights. I was... More

The Blue Fish Inn is our choice for our annual family vacation! Franco and Lena have become a part of our extended family. Every year we come to celebrate our youngest son's birthday (he always wants to come to the Blue Fish) and we couldn't ask for better hospitality.
