For the price we paid for this motel, we definitely had higher expectations. We rented the apartment above the garage Pros: The location - we were right across the street from the beach and walking distance from the shops The size of the apartment- we had a full one bedroom apartment with a kitchen and living room Cons: The value...

Many issues with this place. First, we booked an ocean view room and please take note...if they put you on the first floor of the ocean front rooms...it IS NOT ocean view. Next, the owner needs to invest in sending the front desk attendents to a customer service training series. And, seeing how they run this place...they need their own... More

This was my second stay in Cape May. My mother, daughter (toddler aged) and I spent 3 nights here for a long weekend retreat. I had low expectations going into it, I know you get what you pay for. First of all, let me say that the rooms are nice enough. Nothing special, but I knew that going in. We... More

We received a warm welcome from the lady at the reception describe when we checked in. The rooms were spotlessly clean some would say a little old fashioned but I found them charming. The rooms had all that... More

Wonderful location and price! Clean but basic rooms. Love this place! Can't beat the location, right across the street from the beach. One of my all time favorite lodgings. Cordial, courteous service.

We stayed at the Buckingham for two nights. We usually stay at a higher end, more expensive property, but were unable to get a room on short notice. The Buckingham was delightful. The room was immaculate the shower hot, the staff friendly, what more could you want. The bed was a little lumpy and the heating/AC unit noisy but the... More

Recently stayed for the 1st time in Dec 2015. Was expecting nothing as some other reviews are less than stellar. Since I had low expectations, what I encountered was quite pleasant. The rooms are being renovated. Mine had new tile flooring and new paint. The linens seemed basic, definitely clean and the towels although too small to wrap around your... More

Place was very clean. Nothing fancy. Very reasonable. Be sure to take your own shampoo etc. Towels could be replaced. Bedding also. Very worn, no covers on comforters. Should have at least a duvet to be washed between guests and for cleanliness. No ice machine. But for the price was fine. We only stayed one night.
