Cape Winds Motel is a great place to go when visiting Cape May, if you don't need many amenities and don't need to be beachside. It's clean, with very reasonable rates and is only a 5 minute drive to the beach & and an easy walk to a lot of the Cape's stores & restaurants. The only inconvenience to us... More

The Cape Winds is a classic '60s style beach motel with everything you need and nothing that you don't. The rooms are clean, pretty, and functional with simple decor and adequate lighting. The bathrooms are very neat and clean and appear to have been redecorated recently. Each room has a mini fridge, which is also quite convenient. The motel is... More

Though not the best hotel to stay at in Cape May it filled in for a day. The hotel was clean and close to attractions and for a budget conscious family it would work for a day or two in the off season.

A vintage 60's style beach motel, the Cape Winds offers everything that you need without asking you to pay for amenities that you don't want and won't need. We stayed at the Cape Winds in September, just after Labor Day, for three nights. Our room was very clean, and we had access to the basics--daily housekeeping, cable TV, free wi-fi.... More

We had a lovely two night stay here during peak season. The check in was easy, the room was clean and comfortable enough. The parking area is tight but there is plenty of free street parking. There are no amenities like a pool or coffee but it serves well as a place to shower and sleep in between beach activities.... More

We had a good experience at Cape Winds. It took us about ten minutes to walk to the beach. The place is across the street from some baseball fields. There was plenty of parking. The staff was very nice. Room seemed very clean and there are chairs outside the door if you want to sit out. Only negatives were that... More

Cape May is a fabulous place to spend a few days, throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Cape Winds Motel is very reasonably priced and the rooms are large and clean. There is a refrigerator, but no microwave or coffee maker. But it is located just 3 blocks from the Acme supermarket. It is q quick 1.5mile drive to the... More

The ceiling must have made out of cardboard paper. We heard footsteps and conversation from upstairs. There was peculiar stench coming out of the air condition and old carpet. Extremely unpleasant employees. Never!!! Ever let your child run to the bathroom if you happen to be there after a check out. It will be considered staying the whole day. That... More
