Rooms were situated where you would have no idea you were anywhere near the ocean. Room was tiny and had a moldy scent. Will not stay again. No ice machine and noisy air conditioner. Parking was the only dependable feature. Disappointed.

If you are looking for luxury with all the bells and whistles, this is not your place. The Buckingham Motel located on Cape May is a basic Motel with basic guest rooms but one of the cleanest rooms that we have ever been in. It had included a dorm size fridge with ice trays, microwave oven, toaster and coffee maker,...

For the price we paid for this motel, we definitely had higher expectations. We rented the apartment above the garage Pros: The location - we were right across the street from the beach and walking distance from the shops The size of the apartment- we had a full one bedroom apartment with a kitchen and living room Cons: The value...

Many issues with this place. First, we booked an ocean view room and please take note...if they put you on the first floor of the ocean front rooms...it IS NOT ocean view. Next, the owner needs to invest in sending the front desk attendents to a customer service training series. And, seeing how they run this place...they need their own...

This was my second stay in Cape May. My mother, daughter (toddler aged) and I spent 3 nights here for a long weekend retreat. I had low expectations going into it, I know you get what you pay for. First of all, let me say that the rooms are nice enough. Nothing special, but I knew that going in. We...

Wonderful location and price! Clean but basic rooms. Love this place! Can't beat the location, right across the street from the beach. One of my all time favorite lodgings. Cordial, courteous service.

We stayed at the Buckingham for two nights. We usually stay at a higher end, more expensive property, but were unable to get a room on short notice. The Buckingham was delightful. The room was immaculate the shower hot, the staff friendly, what more could you want. The bed was a little lumpy and the heating/AC unit noisy but the...
