The good: The place is in a really good location – access to the beach is as close as you can get; cross the road and you’re on the beach. Additionally, you’re close to many of the restaurants nearby (walking distance), as well as being away enough from the noise of southern part of Cape May. At the time of... More

This ranks in one of the top three worst rooms that we ever stayed. Very dated! The only reason we stayed here was because it was a last minute decision and everything else was booked. The reviews seemed reasonable and the price was right so we took it (Room #8). When we arrived, we walked into a room that smelled... More

One thing any motel should have is a good nights sleep. When the A/C is loud due to poor maintenance it seems the staff should switch A/C units or rooms for the guest. This did not happen until after we checked out. Otherwise things were okay, except for the cancellation policy. Oh, please take an extra roll of TP, as... More

We stayed here right after the 4th of July. Compared to all the other hotels on beach ave. they were very reasonably priced. Even though they were a lot cheaper our room was very clean and comfortable. The room had a separate kitchen, stove, sink, microwave etc. Probably standard but it did have all the dishes, pots, and pans which... More

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

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

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...
