We are a family of 4 (with 2 young boys) who shared a room with two queen beds over Labor Day weekend. We loved the pool, and being directly across the street from an entrance to the beach. The room was modern and comfortable and the staff was friendly and efficient without being cloying. The location of the Inn was... More

The Inn is more in the style if a motel but many of the Cape May inns call themselves Inns instead of motels. I am very impressed with the extent the staff goes to in cleaning and maintaining the rooms and grounds. The irises are all trimmed to a uniform height which pleases my sense of order! A little OCD.... More

This Inn was very comfortable. The price was a little high due to holiday weekend but well worth every penny. Our room was clean, big enough and well kept. The staff was very helpful. The pool was spotless and the landscaping was well taken care of. The parking was easy enough to maneuver and seemed just large enough to accommodate... More

We just returned home from a beautiful, relaxing trip to Cape May. This was the first time we stayed at the Periwinkle Inn and I can assure you we will return. From the moment we arrived we were impressed. The location could not have been better, right across from the beach and a short walk from Washington street. We never... More

We spent an outstanding Memorial Day family vacation at the Periwinkle Inn. Cape May was an outstanding location for a family vacation. We were surprised that we could afford to stay so close to the beach, and SO pleased that the hotel's suites were as nice as they were. It was completely renovated with a stylish contemporary decor and served... More

Just got back from our family vacation at Cape May. Periwinkle was wonderful. We had three rooms right next to one another it worked out wonderfully. Kitchenette was fully stocked which was great since traveling with young children we didn't want to eat out. BBQ grills were immaculate and had all utensils you need to cook. Staff were friendly and... More

The Periwinkle has been my girl's weekend getaway spot for years. It suits us perfectly. The location is perfect because it is steps away from the beach. We prefer our hotel to be quiet at night and because it doesn't have a bar or restaurant, it is. Yet, night life is a short distance away. The new renovations were a... More

The hotel Periwinkle should be avoided. There are no amenities and the hotel is badly in need of a renovation. There were hairs in the bathroom which was disgusting. There was also moldy wood that was sloppily painted over. We were charged with hidden fees as well. This is the worst hotel I've ever been to. I would not recommend... More

Our bed was very comfortable pillows were great. Bathroom was very small with very poor lighting. No full length mirror any place in room to see how you look when you get dressed. No lighting over area where microwave and fridge are located. Room was very plain all white and grey, it needs a little color it's a beach resort.... More

Our room was very clean and comfortable and surprisingly quiet given the fact that the hotel was fully booked. Bed comfort was excellent. Linens were of good quality. Refrigerator is provided free of charge. My only area of dissatisfaction was the size of the bathroom, very small.
