Our friends recommended the Periwinkle Inn because they had stayed there before. We'd never been to Cape May so we took their advice. The staff was friendly, the hotel was super clean and our room was spacious. Bed was comfy - a little softer than we like, but that's just us. Free Wi-Fi worked like a charm at all times.... More

I was very surprised by how nice this place was when we arrived. We've been walking by for years, but had never stayed here. The courtyard looks nice from the street, but it's a nice little oasis just off the beach. The room was VERY clean. It has nice amenities with a coffee makers, small fridge, and microwave. Beds were... More

Really enjoyed the new boutique style of the Periwinkle. Convenience of the fridge, coffeemaker and microwave were fantastic additions. The room was nice and clean. We had a room facing the ocean and the patio furniture was sturdy and clean. Beach towels were available in the room, though we did not use them. Cleaning staff was very nice and accommodating....

I usually don't take the time to do these things but I have to say my experience at the periwinkle was FANTASTIC!!!! CLEAN, AFFORDABLE, AND GREATTT LOCATION. it was convenient to the beach and pool. The rooms were immaculate and the front desk was very welcoming. I will be coming back in a few weeks.

We enjoyed our stay; our beds were comfortable and the room claean and well stocked with towels, etc. We would have loved to try the pool, but the air was too cool when we stayed. Otherwise, great location on the beach in Cape May!

This hotel has the worst customer service that I have ever experienced in my life. We had a death in the family and couldn't make our reservation; after 6 emails and repeated phone calls, they wouldn't even allow us to change to a different reservation date or reimburse us any of the money; basically they stole $600 dollars from us....

My boyfriend and I decided to go to Cape May for a long weekend on a last minute whim. We called numerous places but everything was sold out. Luckily the Periwinkle Inn had vacancy. I was a little skeptical because I read some bad reviews and the front desk area had a smell of smoke. However, as soon as we... More

Loved the Periwinkle Inn. Grounds very pretty, right across from the beach. Room was clean and modern, only compliant is room and bathroom size definitely on the small side. Would stay here again for sure.

I enjoyed my stay here as usual right across the street from the beach . This year the hotel hired some new faces that really made a difference . I had exceptional help from Philomena . This woman knows all about Cape May and helped my family and friends make wonderful decisions during our stay. It made a world of... More

Stay away from booking.com AND this place....we needed to cancel our reservation and the hotel said they couldn't help us because we used them and then charged us the full amount. These hotels should let you reschedule your trip. Sometimes a cancellation is unavoidable.
