It was two years ago that I wrote about our stay with not so nice comments. We decided to give them another chance this summer. We were treated nicely at check-in, which is still 3:00. Check-in and Check-out were the only times we had to interact with the staff and all was well. The new air conditioning units are quieter... More

Although this hotel has beautiful curb appeal and is clean, don't judge a book by its cover. My family has a home in Cape May and I was visiting them, the children were treated horrible and kicked out of the pool instead of being welcomed. There are no chairs at the pool, unwelcoming and miserable. I paid five star prices... More

Great location! The rooms are very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The private balcony had an ocean view... It's right across from the beach. It's also within walking distance of some restaurants and the center of town. Would definitely stay here again!

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at the Periwinkle Inn during our first trip to the New Jersey coast. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was nicely appointed and comfortable - even with 2 of our adult children. The grounds and pool are delightful as well as nicely maintained. We will definitely try to return. Melissa from...

What a great vacation for our family! Rooms were nice and clean with a fantastic location! And the pool was the best on the beach. It was great to meet the family who owned the property (Joey) who made us feel right at home. Will definitely stay there again if we go back to Cape May.

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....
