We have stayed at the Victorian Motel for the past four years, and we can't say enough about how great this hotel is. It's located right at the end of the Washington Mall and one block from the beach. Very close to everything! The motel is quiet, comfortable, and relaxing. It's always very clean, and the owners and staff are very friendly and hard-working. We look forward to seeing Joy, their golden retriever during our stays. It has a huge pool and a deck that overlooks the Washington Mall that is perfect for relaxing at after a long day at the beach. The rooms are clean and comfortable with plenty of towels. We are already looking forward to our next visit next summer!

Room Tip: Efficiency rooms do not have a balcony, but they do include a large fridge, stove top, microwave, an...

My family has been staying at this hotel for quite a a few years. This was the first time I was able to go with them to Cape May. I had an amazing experience. This hotel is the perfect distance to everything. We didn't get in the car once during our stay. It was clean, and the housekeeping staff did a great job. The beds are not comfy, and that's my only complaint. The pool area is very nice, although we spent most of our days at the beach. It is nice to just sit outside your room and people watch as well. The shops across the street are so convenient. I would 100% recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The second floor would be best! You are off the ground but don't have to do as many steps as the...

This was our family's first stay at the Victorian Motel and it won't be our last. The location, cleanliness and amenities at the Victorian Motel helped to enhance what was a great visit to Cape May. The pool and outdoor deck proved to be invaluable after a long day at the beach. The front desk staff were very friendly and were happy to give recommendations on everything from restaurants to what to do on a rainy day (John and Tina were great to deal with). The housekeeping staff were very good at cleaning the rooms in a timely fashion (we appreciated coming back to a clean room even after a short beach trip) and the outdoor trash and recycling bins were checked every morning to make sure they were empty. The only drawbacks to our stay were that one of our beds had a sagging box spring and it seemed that no matter when we went on the balcony area or the outdoor deck area, people were there smoking cigarettes. Another couple with small children mentioned the smoking was a problem for them as well. Overall, the biggest compliment I can pay the Victorian Motel is our repeat business which I hope they will receive for years to come.

There were four women two bedroom suite. It was very comfy for all of us. Great service for the price. This was third stay here. We will be staying in future. Even my mom was pleased. She commented on how white the towels were.

I always go look at the bathtub first thing when I get to my room. I have never seen a cleaner bathroom--even my mother would have approved of this one (and that doesn't happen!) In fact, the entire room was spotless and comfortable. It's spitting distance from Washington Mall and all that goes on at Congress Hall (which was a lot--this was 4th of July weekend!) Staff members were warm and helpful--and added perks for my particular room (106) were:
-The air conditioner is positioned so that it doesn't blow directly on the bed, and it works well
-decent water pressure from the shower
-an honest to goodness parking place (last place I stayed SAID that there was parking--but there were less parking places than rooms--so you were always taking a chance!)
-good quality pillows, nice sheets, decent bed--and a much better-than-average decor for this type of motel

Loved it--will definitely recommend!

We've been staying at the Victorian for 20 years- it is the perfect place for couples or a family. The rooms are quiet and clean, it's at the end of the Mall (close to shops and restaurants (and perfect for people watchin!) ; it's a short trip to the beach. The pool is perfect for the kids, and they have a grill for those lazy days when we don't want to leave the pool.

The staff is always available and ready with suggestions, or to fill us in on the latest changes in the town.

John and his wife take great care of everyone.

Room Tip: Love the two room efficiencies.
