This was my second visit to the Blue Fish Inn. My two sons and I had attended an overnight Pelagic birding trip out of Wildwood Crest and rather than drive home after being out for 20 hours, I wanted to stay overnight. We reserved room # 7 (as it had three beds) online and the process was easy and painless.... More

We love Cape May and always come for my Birthday in September. Lately we have only been staying for the day but decided this time to stay overnight and not have to fight Philly rush hour traffic. We found this place online as saw it was dog friendly and in addition got very good reviews. Well we were thrilled with... More

I have been by this Inn many times over the years, and have had family stay there. We decided to go to Cape May for a last minute family reunion, and stayed here because it is down the block from my sister's house. I was hesitant, because it is a small place, and wasn't the nicest the last time my... More

Everything about our stay was positive - clean, quiet (even within our own room - the doors block out sound well), nice facilities (pleasant little pool, beach chair service included on public beach, fully stocked showers out back for when you return from beach, continental breakfast), very reasonable rates, super friendly & accommodating owners. We have a 1 yr old... More

Recently stayed here and we were very happy with our stay. It was very clean and good location about a half mile from the beach. Beautiful, clean, heated pool on the grounds. They were dog and children friendly. I would definately stay here again.

Our family of 5 spent the last 4 days at the Blue Fish and couldn't be more satisfied. With 5 in our party that usually means two rooms, but not here. They have a family style room with 3 beds in 2 separate bedrooms that acommodated us nicely. The owners, Lena and Franco, were wonderful and their lovely Inn offers... More

Sweet little place with a home-town feel. Signing in, manager greeted us as if she were delighted we were staying at the inn. Without our prompting, she provided us with a map of Cape May, explaining highlights, and circling & mapping out routes. Room, like the inn itself, is not fancy but fresh, bright & clean, contained all the amenities... More

I have been a long time visitor to Cape May ( 1970) and this trip my wife ( first visit to CM) & I got to experience the Blue Fish Inn for the first time. I have to admit some bias since I have known Franco for many years but that could not make our BFI experience any better. This... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Blue Fish Inn. We wanted to make the most of our short stay so decided to go to the beach before check in at 2pm. After a 2.5hr car ride with a crying child who wanted to get out of the car, I was so happy (and relieved) that Franco let us check... More
