“Eh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2009

First of all, it's about half the cost of the bed and breakfasts nearby...so you really get what you pay for. It was clean, and the bathroom remodeled, but other than that it felt like, well it felt like a motel. I removed the cheesy bed spread before I even put my bags down. But, you can't beat the location, right at the end of the Washington Street Mall. The managers were friendly and there is off-street parking. All in all, cheap but clean. If you can't spend the money on Congress Hall or a B&B, it will do.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2009

I needed three rooms for family members attending the Coast Guard graduation ceremony at Cape May in March. After some internet research I discovered that winter accomodations are pretty limited. I was intrigued with the positive reviews for the Victorian Motel but a little suspicious of the low prices. I called and spoke with John, who was courteous, well informed and very helpful, and decided to take a chance. There is nothing flashy about this facility but it is well maintained, the rooms are clean, and the service is what you would expect of a family owned business. It is only one block from the beach and across the street from the pedestrian promenade of shops and restaurants. I have stayed in much fancier hotels but have never had a better value.

My parents and I recently stayed in the Victorian for my brother's Coast Guard graduation. What a great place! I'll admit, it's not brand new, but you will not find a cleaner room, and we stayed at a brand new Hilton Garden Inn the previous night. The bedding was clean and smelled fresh, and the bathroom had Moen fixtures and looked VERY newly renovated. The price and value was outstanding. We called to the front desk several times with questions. He recommended restaurants, directions, etc. We were very pleased, and the hotel is one block from the ocean. It was just perfect for a family from the midwest needing lodging in Cape May. Would DEFINITELY stay again!!!

We just returned from our Victorian Motel stay of 2 days in Cape May. We are a coast guard family attending graduation. We enjoyed the Victorian and you were most helpful with loaning us an iron, iron board and hair dryer which we had left home. AND when my daughter thought she left her wallet behind we called you to look for us and you called back after checking the room to say it wasn't there. We then went under car seats and there it was but the thought of it being gone was overwhelming...so thanks for a clean comfortable place to stay and the extra effort in making our stay comfortable.

My family and I have been staying at this Motel 4th of July week for 14 years now. Great location, great staff and a wonderful place to stay. The pool is always clean and a great place to hang out with your family if you don't want to go down to the beach. Located directed across the street from the entrance to the Washington St. Mall. We park the car at check in and don't move it until check out, you can walk to everything. Rooms are kept very clean and we have enjoyed our vaction here everytime we have stayed. Great family vactation!!

We and our German guests had a wonderful stay at the Victorian Motel in Oct., 2008. The service is friendly and efficient.
The location is perfect because it is possible to walk everywhere. We did not need a vehicle during our stay.
The rooms are very comfortable and a bargain for Cape May. In addition, parking is free.

A Great Place to Stay!

* Friendly & accommodating management and staff
* Bright & clean rooms with newly remodeled bathrooms
* Perfect location, right on the edge of the Washington street mall
* Big pool
* 2 blocks from the beach

I've stayed at the Victorian about 8 times, I've always found the service to be excellent & the rooms comfortable. I strongly recommend you stay at here for your next Cape May vacation.
