“Clean, Comfortable....Cape May.”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

This charming family owned charm is located in the heart of Cape May just steps from the Water tower. Clean and comfortable rooms. Staff is extremely friendly and attends to your needs, Beautiful park near for morning or evening walks. Pool, BBQ area are a nice addition when not at the beautiful beaches of Cape May.

We stayed at Blue Fish Inn in August and loved the stay here. The room was comfortable. It is located in a less busy section of Cape May. It is on the trolley route. Really enjoyed sitting in the chairs that are right outside your room's door and the loungers at the pool. It was a fairly good price for Cape May. During the summer, they had a nice continential breakfast...the basics. Enjoyed seeing groups of Coast Guard cadets run by during one of their evening runs. Would definitely recommend this inn.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at The Blue Fish Inn this past weekend. Met up with some old friends and had a great time. The hosts, Franco and Lena where the best of hosts! Made to feel like family. The room was very clean and comfortable, out door setting was great, had Saturday evening "feast" BBQ in the picnic area.

My family and I come to Cape May every year, sometimes multiple times, but this was our first stay at Blue Fish Inn. Over the phone, the owners were very nice and booked us the last available room. Our room had a big King sized bed and two pullout love seats, a small kitchenette and one bath. The room smelled great and was nice and bright and clean. It was small, but did the trick for myself, my son, and my mom..in fact we all slept in the same bed and had plenty of room!! The bed was real comfy- slept wonderful. We walked to Washington St mall via Washington St no problem- pretty Victorian houses along the way. The beach was only 0.4 miles- a straight shot, totally do- able. The pkg lot was def tight when full, but I did just fine. Franko and his wife take good care of their guests- they did allow us to check out later which we greatly appreciated (we hate to leave Cape May!) it took me a little bit to figure out where the provided hair dryer plugged in (under bathroom light)- but I got it. Love the shampoo and soap dispensers in the shower!! Neat idea. key things to remember: reasonably priced, friendly owners, clean and bright rooms. I will stay again!!!!!! Thanks Blue Fish Inn!!!!

Very clean, cozy, comfortable rooms. Small place but very nice. Nice pool and close enough to the beach but not too close. Staff was friendly and made you feel like they've known you for years. Would surely stay here again. One thing I didn't like was the parking lot, it's very small, glad I wasn't the one driving. LOL.

We stayed here in 2012 and again this year under new management. Standards have not slipped! Our room is clean and comfortable ( as are the beds), the service is good and friendly, the swimming pool is a real bonus (warm in October before the weather cooled) as well as the laundry facilities. For birders it's conveniently situated for the main sites and easily accessible at all times. For non-birders it's within walking distance of historic Cape May as well as the beach. Good value and non-stuffy. A real find.
