“Weekend getaway”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

This was my second time staying at Periwinkle Inn. My boyfriend and I love this place. Its right on the boardwalk and the staff is awesome. We were referred by a friend that lived in the Cape May area and fell in love. Can't wait till next year when we go back

Be aware. Even if you provide more than 30 days of notice for a cancellation, they are charging you a 25% fee!!! So for my 4 nights, they charge me $165. This is scandalous and such a bad customer service. They really don't deserve your business.

This motel is great.. the staff is very nice and friendly. The rooms are very clean and spacious. fantastic view of the ocean from the balcony. we really enjoyed our stay out here in Cape May. The beach is right across the street, how could you not love that? Located in a very nice area, walking distance to just about everything that Cape May has to offer. Shops, Restaurants, Beach, Mini Golf. Will definitely stay here again next year.

My friends & I stay @ the Periwinkle every year in June. We love the rooms, the location is great & very convenient. The grounds & the pool are lovely & well maintained. However, there are not a lot of amenities & the high speed internet they advertise doesn't always work. This year, neither my husband nor I were able to connect. As others have said, the office staff is not overly friendly and if you need to ask for any extra blankets or towels, it can be a hassle. (Although, Jerry has always been very friendly and has recommended some great restaurants & fishing spots). It is also a hassle to bring all that cash to check in! Overall a lovely, convenient place if you are a low-maintenance guest. We will return next June.

Location and accommodations were great. Walking distance to shopping and fine dinning. We stayed there on mother's day weekend and had a great time. The rooms were recently decorated and very clean. The staff was attentive and friendly. I would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a nice beach getaway.

It has been a long time since my family and I have been to Cape May, so this year was our first in many years of going there EVERY year. We stopped going because we just did not get the charm or relaxation as you'd expect. WELL, after deciding to give it another try, we recently stayed at the Periwinkle and my family had an amazing time and we plan to return every year from now on and stay at the Periwinkle. The service was outstanding, the rooms were beautiful, and we were so close to the beach. And how can you argue with being on the 2nd floor where you are beachside in 3 minutes?!? Enough of going to Myrtle where you're planted on the 13th floor and you fight elevators all week - No thanks!!! Staying at the Periwinkle is as close as being at home as you can get. Very private, very relaxing, and it's a good fit for couples or families. I strongly recommend staying there to anyone and I've already booked for next year!!

We go to The Periwinkle every June.... It's charming & beachfront....great location for anything U choose to do here....Service is outstanding, the owner, Claudia, made sure everything was stress-free, and it was appreciated....we rent a minimum of 10 rooms. I requested specific rooms, and the request was granted. The layout at the Inn is spacious with pool placed directly in front of the rooms, with the ocean right there....it was annual bonding of family, and a wonderful trip! Thank U CLAUDIA & THE STAFF @ The Periwinkle Inn! See you June 2015!
