I absolutely love this place. It's worth the price. The service was so professional and the place was very clean. It had all the comforts of a bed and breakfast without the creepy factor of staying In a strangers home. They also have "wine and cheese hour" every day and it's absolutely worth it. They are very generous with both... More

Our room was on the 3rd Floor in front. Sufficiently large for us with decent bathroom and closet space for our 6 day visit. Great view of the ocean from our two windows! Fresh bottled water in the room each day and cold drinks, water and ice as well as coffee/tea and some small snacks available 24/7 in the convenience... More

Another amazing Cape May vacation in Room 4 at PSI. The staff was friendly and efficient, as always. Room 4 sits on the back of the house with a private balcony, perfect. Beach chairs, umbrellas and towels are provided. There is also an outdoor shower, if needed. Breakfast served from 8-10 daily, very enjoyable. Wine, cheese, fruit and breads are... More

we loved our room with gas fireplace on 2nd floor. hotel had plenty of areas to sit and relax both inside and outside. décor was tasteful and our bed was comfy. staff was very gracious and friendly. shower was great, but bathroom sink had a shelf over it that made it impossible to lean over it.

Location on Beach Ave assures a good view and dinning is a pleasure in this lovely venue. Good service, local vine selection, good food - you got it all. Many rooms allow for semi private dining for larger groups. I liked charred steak tartare with quail egg and haricot vests. My halibut selection was also superb. I enjoyed warm English... More

We had our wedding reception there May 30, 2015 and it turned out great!! The staff was patient and accommodating. The place is small but was perfect for my guest list of 40. It is beautiful on the outside and inside. The food is excellent! My husband is a cook and is hard to please and he loved the food!... More

I goofed and actually made my reservation for yesterday when showed up for what we thought were our reservation for this evening they found us a table even though they were booked. Service and food were awesome, the only downside is it a BYOB. If you are a foodie it's a must visit

Wow if you can wrangle a reservation at the Peter Shields Inn and restaurant, do so! I spent the night in a lovely room that was quiet and beautiful. The bathroom was fabulous. Of course the best part about this lovely inn and restaurant is the incredible food. I don't give 5 stars easily, but this establishment is well deserving.
