We are always able to get a room. The people are pleasant and the rooms are very clean. The pool is great and so is the location.?its s short walk into town. Convenient to restaurants . Can also catch the trolley right outside. We have stayed 3 or 4 times and have never been disappointed.

Service from check in to check out was great! Friendly staff, beautiful grounds, very clean room. The walk to the beach may be one of it's best features. It's entrance is literally right across the street & anyone with kids having to haul beach supplies understands that is priceless. I would stay here again & highly recommend this place to... More

My husband & I stayed for one night on a last minute trip to Cape May. We were greeted by super friendly staff on the phone while making the reservation and at the front desk (I think her name was Sue). After a long drive it was nice to see a parking spot reserved just for guests that are checking-in... More

I loved staying at the Periwinkle! Expedia had canceled our room without our knowledge so we were without a room. The ladies at the front desk were very accommodating. The room was the 2 queen standard, the beds comfortable, it has a coffee pot, micro and a small refrigerator. Perfect for our needs. It is decorated simply but with a... More

Arrived early, room not ready which was fine but paper work completed and was told we'd be called when room was ready. Friendly staff at desk, very welcoming. Spent the rest of the day at the beach. Called just after 3pm to inform us room was ready. Large room on top floor overlooking the pool. Very clean room and bathroom.... More

This hotel turned out to be better than expected! First of all, I was afraid of finding that this was just another motel on the beach, but actually the Periwinkle was better than that (and if I have to be honest, you can read that I stayed at the Victorian Motel a few years ago, which is the number 1...

This establishment is adorable! Rooms are fresh, easy and super tidy with a sweet modern touch. The pool is crystal clean and the grounds meticulously manicured. Location is directly across from the beach entrance close enough to where the cafes and shops begin yet far enough to enjoy the neighborhood feel. The office area was bright and welcoming as was...

We stayed our first time at the Periwinkle the last week of September for two nights last year. Aside from it not having laundry facilities, it was perfect! Just a beautiful place! Because of the off peak rates, we got to take advantage of staying in the E-4 suite which is amazing!! Downstairs right off the back door is ground... More

I enjoy the Victorian inns, but sometimes you just want modern comfort and the periwinkle delivers modern comfort in a neatly laid out campus, great pool on site, clean and well appointed rooms, and friendly professional staff. I loved the more modern aesthetic and appreciated how clean our room was every day. I also saw the maids cleaning a nearby... More
