Sadly this place back in the day was a great place to stay. My family had spent MANY summers here ever since I was a very small child. My grandmother lived in northern Jersey, so we would pick her up along the way and spend 2 weeks at the Periwinkle Inn. It had a great feel to the place, and... More

Hotel looks like old Cape May from the outside, but the rooms are nicely redone and modern on the inside. Right across the street from the beach, great service from hotel staff and in office. Onsite pool was well kept, though closes early. Right across the street from beach. We planned on staying one night but then stayed an extra.... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Cleanest beachside hotel I've ever been at. Staff were super friendly. Big pool and very nicely kept grounds. Partial view of ocean from 2nd floor room. Better than I expected!!! Very kid friendly and surprisingly quiet and relaxing for the number of kids there.

We stayed at the Periwinkle for 3 nights. The hotel service was great, the pool was wonderful and well maintained. The kids enjoyed playing shuffle board and walking across the street to the beach. We had a first floor room which was great as we could walk right out to the pool through our slider. No view of the beach... More

supposed ocean front room view was obstructed and too far away from the ocean. I happened to have a bruised knee elevator was out of order for my whole stay. this was very inconvenient. The grounds were nicely kept and the room was cleen and comfortable, however when I felt misled by the description ocean view.

Just spent 5 days at the Periwinkle Inn. Rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly.There is a baby pool and we were right across fromthe beachwhich is immaculate. The one drawback is that there was NO elevator service for the 5 days we were there. It was very inconvenient.

I was quite impressed with Periwinkle Inn. From the outside, you would never expect to see the inside as nice. ROOMS: They are all fully renovated with a modern touch of decor and they have a kitchenette in the room that I stayed. I know there are full kitchen in the 2 suite rooms. Our room was on the first... More

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
