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.

Our family of three has been to the Periwinkle three times over the last nine years. This last visit was in the middle of September for a Monday through Friday stay. The room was clean, the beds were relatively comfortable, the view from the top (3rd floor, side view towards the front) was unremarkable but adequate. The price was not... More

20 college classmates just returned from two days at the Periwinkle. They came from all over the country, plus Canada, and were treated like gold! Thanks to Patty, Elaina and all the reservations staff. The Periwinkle is clean, pleasant, convenient and congenial. Don't hesitate to go!

I had a short stay, one night. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly, the pool was nice and the location was great. Close enough to walk to town but far enough away to avoid the shoulder to shoulder crowds. My only issues were that I wish the pool was open later (open until 7p). Our room... More

Overall we were very happy at the Periwinkle. Staff was courteous and did a great job with cleanliness. The bathroom was very small though. Our door couldn't fully open all the way. We reserved a non smoking room with a balcony so we could sit outside and view the ocean but we were not aware that smoking was allowed on... More

Our experience was very pleasant. It began when we entered our crisp, clean room. The bedding smelled fresh and the mattress and pillows felt wonderful! The courtyard and pool area was manicured. Sitting on the patio, drinking coffee and looking out over the lovely landscaped courtyard with a pleasant view of the ocean provided an opportunity to relax and enjoy... More

What a nice surprise to find such a lovely place that is immaculate, well maintained and right across from the beach. Beautifully landscaped. The room was nicely furnished and the bed very comfortable. Very convenient to restaurants and shops. I look forward to going back again next year.

We spent 3 nights at the Periwinkle for our anniversary last weekend. We have stayed in Cape May many times & tried B&B's, large hotels, and opted to try this because it was one of the few places with a room still available at a somewhat reasonable rate, especially on the beach. We were very pleased with our choice. The... More

Spent three nights and it was wonderful. Room was very bright, spacious, with comfortable beds (2 queen in our room). Had a fridge and microwave, and balcony to sit and enjoy the view. Pool and grounds were very well maintained. Staff very helpful. Located right across from the ocean, and since it was off-season not crowded at all. Would recommend.... More
