“Very Nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Our family has been to Cape May many times but never to the Victorian Motel. It was excellant. Great location - don't have to move the car much. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and very affordably priced especially since it was a holiday weekend. Already planning when to come back!

Room Tip: Third floor rooms have the best view of Washington Street

Fantastic location. Room very spacious and clean. Lots of info to hand, staff very knowledgeable on what to do, where to go etc. Location is just the best - top of Washington Street, 2 min walk to the beach and board walk - you also get free parking with your stay so no need to move the car. I would describe the hotel as very practical and functional, rather than 'lush' - but its in the game of being a motel for which I think this is one of the best we have stayed in. Recommend the Blue Pig across the road for dinner in Congress Hall - very good prices and superb food.

My wife, myself and my 12 year old just came back from spending 3 nights at the Victorian and were very pleased with our experience. I was a little iffy about staying here at first since we have always stayed at motels on the beach when traveling to Cape May, but the close proximity to the mall and all of the shops and restaurants more than made up for that. I love staying at a place where there is barely a reason to use your car!
The rooms were a very nice size, very up to date and most importantly extremely clean. The beds were comfortable with enough pillows in the room for each of us to have two. The owners and their staff really care about their motel and the grounds as evidenced by the staff constantly walking the grounds, straightening out the furniture, checking on all things, etc. That really appeals to the clean freak inside of me! It's also nice to stay at a place where all of the staff are friendly and helpful.
If I had one comment to make it would be that the wifi could have been better inside the room, however it worked perfectly sitting on the balcony outside the room.
We would definitely recommend this place to others and would definitely consider it for future visits to Cape May.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 304 which is on the 3rd floor. I would definitely recommend it if noise from peopl...

My family had never been in Cape May before, but our friends were getting married there and the Victorian was one of their recommendations, since it was right across the street from the Congress Hall, the wedding venue. The stay was fairly priced for a holiday weekend, the rooms were very clean and the staff were all very attentive and friendly. My daughter and I loved the abundance of towels in the bathroom (always a plus!). The pool was refreshing and very clean and we loved relaxing on the 2nd floor balcony with a great view to the mall. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Choose a first floor room if you have young children. A room w a view of the shopping mall is very p...

The Victorian Motel exceeded our expectations and made our very first vacation in Cape May a memorable one. As many of the reviews have indicated, the location is perfect, the room was clean, and the staff were friendly. Based on this wonderful experience, we are planning to make Cape May an annual trip and hope to stay at The Victorian Motel.

We have been coming here for 5 years straight always the same week. The rooms are all updated and spotless. We always book the 3rd floor so we can look out at the mall at night. The pool is immaculate ! Thanks you for yet another wonderful stay!!!!

Great location. A short walk to both the beach and shopping. Our room was nice and clean, but too close to the pool so it felt like folks could peep right in. Book an upper floor if you can. Staff are very friendly and a great source of information on fun things to do in town. Giving it just 3 stars because the beds were just too hard!

Room Tip: Pick second or third floor rooms
