Incredible service, friendly, and clean! Highly recommend! Went during Covid pandemic and still had a great time. Excellent location! The price was spectacular for what we got! Service was available when we needed them, I’m definitely coming back!

POSITIVES: Property was very clean and the staff was very nice. Location was a block back from the beach (with zero view) but in good proximity to the Rusty Nail for casual beach dinners. NEGATIVES: The pool is not on property. It is not walking distance and is very tiny regardless. The air conditioner runs constantly to get to a luke warm/cool temp. During the night it is loud and blows moist air on your head. While recently remodeled just the bare essentials were done and if you are accustomed to a little nicer accommodations it will be disappointing. Part of a vacation for me is the ambiance of my stay...if you can see past that it is clean and has a good amount of space with a kitchenette.

The room/bathroom was clean and the staff at the front desk was friendly. The hotel is about a 3-5 min walk to the beach. Cape May is a very “walkable” town and the South Winds was 5-10 mins away from great shops and restaurants.

The South Winds was an excellent place to stay in Cape May. Only 1 block walk to the beach and within walking distance to the Washington Mall area. Luckily we had our bikes so we parked our truck in the free parking lot and used our bicycles to get everywhere during our 5-day, 4-night stay here. The hotel was super clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!

First time I stayed there. Great staff. Looks like they remodeled recently - the room was nicely decorated & very clean. Loved the wall paper in the office that coordinates with the room décor. Very quiet area. I am disabled and they had a room on the 1st floor for me which I could navigate without any issues. Can't wait to go back & stay here again.
