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.

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
