4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Pros: Clean rooms (equipped with microwave, frig, and coffee maker), comfortable beds, nice pool and kiddie pool (only 1 foot deep), sandbox for kids, elevator, across the street from beach, WiFi that actually works, and pool towels in the room. Cons: Old furniture, coffee available was terrible - as was the soap and shampoo - not enough or not replenished... More

My boyfriend and I had a hotel room in Cape May for one night, and needed to find somewhere to stay the next couple of nights (Cape May was practically sold out). We somehow came across the Periwinkle and saw it had one room left. We were a little worried, but looked at pictures and figured we'd be okay. The... More

So i totally agree, Room was nice, great location, wifi could've been better, room needed a full length mirror and a print out of the TV stations... More

The location for this hotel was great. It was across the street from the beach. The workers there were friendly and gave advice on certain places to visit. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. It was a small walk away from stores and restaurants. It is great for people that love to walk and take in... More

The remodeled rooms are nice. It's always clean. You can't beat the location with the beach right across the street. Tired of sand you can relax by the pool. We love the quaintness of this place. We will keep coming back.

Excellent Inn! Warm, friendly , clean and family perfect! The Inn is right across the street from beautiful Cape May beach and a short walking distance to many great places to eat. The staff was friendly and nothing we asked for was a problem.

CLEAN. CLEAN. CLEAN. My friend booked a room for her family and suggested we book one for ours. I had no prior experience with the Periwinkle. We had a wonderful room that was extremely clean. The beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating. My kids loved the pool. I loved the proximity to the beach. My youngest loved... More

The periwinkle was ok with the following caveat. I accidentally made our res for 3 nights, but our vacation was for 4. We were asked to leave on day 3 even though they had an available room. They wouldn't help us because they wanted a 3 night booking on that room! We were already paying 325 per night, btw. Very... More

We needed to get away for a night & found this place on the Internet. Made a last minute reservation and felt lucky to have a room for the night at this "boutique" hotel. We walked in hated the room and walked out. We touched nothing, returned the key & parking pass and asked for our cash back. We were... More

The Periwinkle Inn was perfect for a weekend getaway in Cape May. Staff was so nice and welcoming and the location is great. Rooms are comfy with character. Nice pool and activities. Big bathroom with nice, warm shower. Definitely want to return!
