Recently stayed for the 1st time in Dec 2015. Was expecting nothing as some other reviews are less than stellar. Since I had low expectations, what I encountered was quite pleasant. The rooms are being renovated. Mine had new tile flooring and new paint. The linens seemed basic, definitely clean and the towels although too small to wrap around your...

Place was very clean. Nothing fancy. Very reasonable. Be sure to take your own shampoo etc. Towels could be replaced. Bedding also. Very worn, no covers on comforters. Should have at least a duvet to be washed between guests and for cleanliness. No ice machine. But for the price was fine. We only stayed one night.

We originally booked this motel for our son's coast guard graduation and needed to visit the area a couple weeks ahead of the graduation to do business, so we stayed one night to "try" it out. The rooms are musty smelling, old, the mattresses, which my husband looked at the tags, are 15 years old, and extremely uncomfortable, old towels,...

Our efficiency was clean, slightly musty smell. Bed was good. Location is great. Janet, our check in hostess was really nice. Price is right. No frills but perfect for a modest trip to Cape May. Would come again for the price.

Stayed here for 3 nights in one of the 2nd floor rooms. Room was very clean, the view was amazing and everyone at the motel was very polite. Will definately stay here again. I also liked that it was away from the 'busy' part of town. Very quiet at night.

Very nice hotel in great area. Close to everything. Our room had a full kitchen and breakfast area which was nice. We ate breakfast in our room everyday. There's a nearby Acme food market to buy more food if needed. Beach access was very easy...right across the street! Parking was easy, and we hardly moved the car the whole time...

Last week was our first time as a family vacation in Cape May, New Jersey. We had a week in the private garage apartment at the Buckingham Motel. Neat, clean and tidy. Great accomodation with a value price. If you want the quiet part of Cape May, stay here. Beautiful view of the beach, you could see the dolphins swim...

The staff was friendly and pleasant. The beach is across the street. Picnic tables outside are a nice place to sit and enjoy the evening sea air. Rooms are dated, but for $65 a night off season, a fabulous alternative to just about every other place to stay.

My boyfriend and I just stayed at the Buckingham this past weekend (May 2015). We booked the Oceanview B for 2 nights during the "off" season. Janet and Vickie, the two employees we dealt with during the duration of our stay were WONDERFUL.The room itself was simple, with basic amenities but it was clean and comfortable. The only off-putting aspect...

I've been coming to Cape May for my entire life and I've stayed at many of the establishments along the beach. I've stayed at the Buckingham before -- when it was owned by family friends many years ago. The place has not changed. It's the same! That said -- what you see is what you get. It's basic. Not particularly...
