My wife and I stayed here for one night just before Memorial Day weekend. This was just a get away. The motel is a great value and a fantastic location, right across the street from the beach. Parking is behind the motel, easy access. Our room was very clean and well attended. There was a microwave and micro-fridge. Very friendly... More

We had a comfortable night in an efficiency room. The decor is basic...not fancy. The wireless internet connection worked well. The room was a reasonable size with a separate kitchen. I accidentally dropped a battery on the floor and it rolled under the stove. I was pleasantly surprised that the area under the stove except for a puff of dust... More

I was traveling with my girl friend for a "Girls Only Get-Away" in Cape May from 10/12/13 to 10/15/13. We stayed in the first floor apartment room of the Buckingham. It was clean and spacious with just about all the comforts of home. The kitchen actually had more space than my kitchen at home including a double sink and a... More

We stayed here last August 24-25, 2013. They were nice enough to accept us even for just a night's stay, as usually motels/hotels here needs a 2-3 day minimum stay. Initial impression was that it looks a little rundown, but when we went inside our apartment, we were happy to find it very clean, the comforters are really nice, not... More

We give this review two thumbs up, Helen! Happy to hear you enjoyed everything from the linens to location. We're here next time you're in Cape May -- and if you forget anything else here :) See you soon for baby's second trip to the beach! Crystal, Owner More

This is my third review of the Buckingham Motel. I was quite happy with it the first tow times I stayed here for all the reasons everyone else has already mentioned - close to beach, no frills, but inexpensive (for Cape May), beautiful sunrises, quiet end of Beach Ave., clean, etc. However, this time I must lower my rating to...

Based on reviews I wasn't sure what to expect at the Buckingham. We used to stay here every year but had not been back in about 8 years. I was afraid that the rooms had not been renovated. But we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in an efficiency on the bottom floor that had definitely been renovated. Fresh paint and... More

If you are looking for elegant and fancy - this is not the place for you. If you want affordable, clean, and right on the beach, look no further! We have stayed here before and it is just perfect for location. We always stay in the oceanfront upper room 21 or 22. The view is amazing, there are chairs on... More

We rented the apartment for 3 days. It was basic; but included everything we needed, from linens to dishes and pots & pans. The five of us were very comfortable. The location was fantastic. The room was spotlessly clean. Parking was great. The staff was both friendly and helpful. My husband felt that the bathroom was cramped, but he is... More

There's not much to say that's too good about the Buckingham. Very old motel with poor lighting in the rooms and musty smell. The rug had a spongy feel to it which gave the feeling of dampness. The price is a bit lower than other motels in the area, but you get what you pay for and in this case... More
