We visit Cape May once or twice per year and have for over a dozen. Always stay at the Buckingham. Good value, clean room, quiet, good location--need I say more!

We were there on a chilly Nov weekend and the heat situation was terrible. The room was cold but if the unit was turned up the heat blew right at the head of the bed and was way too hot to sleep. The 2 chairs in the room were not comfortable at all so there was no place in the room to sit and read or relax. Not as close as I had expected to the Washington Mall area as stated in the ad
The woman at the front desk was very nice. The bed was comfortable and the room appeared clean. It was close to beach but we were there in Nov so the beach was not our prioity. It would be a nice spot in the summer

Everything was old and hasn't been upgraded in years. The towels were very old. However the room was clean.

Bathroom is small.So what?
The location is great bc you are far enough from the crowds and close to the fun. Price was the absolute greatest!!!!!

I do not have anything negative to say.
We enjoy staying in Cape May and we always find our best deal here. The Buckingham is very clean and the staff is great and always helpful. For the last two years, this is the only hotel we have stayed in when we come to Cape May. You can't beat the value.

The bed had those plastic mattress protectors that get bunched up and are very uncomfortable. The kitchen had one of those little motel coffee makers with motel coffee and not a full size coffee maker, although there were filters for one. So I was unable to use the better coffee that I had brought with me.
My wife and I stayed in the three room apartment over the garage. The layout was fine. We made breakfast every morning and prepared a small lunch to take with us. The combined dining and living room was nicely furnished and comfortable. The location directly opposite the beach can't be beat.

Furniture (futon) very uncomfortable. No dishwasher to sterile dishes, glassware, etc. Very old and looks it.

The dampness of our room. We put the air conditioner on dry but it was still very damp. This made it hard to sleep
The staff took very good care of our room

Mattress a little on the soft side for us.
The room was very clean. Smelled wonderful. Housekeepers did a great job. The refrigerator & microwave was larger than we thought, which was nice. The front desk staff was very nice & helpful. We'll definitely go back!!!!!

Would have liked a balcony room, but none available.
Very happy with the location, price and motel was close to everything...especially the ocean!! Motel kept up very well and clean. Staff very personable.

The room was a bit small but ok
Friendliness of staff, concern for my husband and me..

Clean, convenient, safe. Can't beat proximity to town and beach. Awesome bang for your buck.

The room may be more comfortable if the rugs were taken out and have just plain floors. People come in from the beach and water flows to floor. The rugs gave a smell of mildew.
It was clean and close to beach.

There wasn't anything we didn't like!
The lodging reminded me of "old Cape May." An older motel on one floor with b-b-que grills and picnic tables so guests can enjoy the sea breezes. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Quiet, good beds, loads of towels.

My daughter & I both had bug bites from our bed. The pillows were as hard as rocks. There were 2 double beds -- we were there just to sleep (11 pm to 10 am check-out) & had to pay $20 extra for our kids without needing anything extra.
June 13, 2014
Closeness to beach. Friendly staff. Cheap price.

A little small but sufficient
The bed was clean, big and comfortable

Nothing negative with motel staff; they were fine. Didn't like having all the stop lights between motel & Cape May Point, nor the clueless drivers who either sped way too fast or drove way too slow, all without regard for others. Didn't like the person who decided to take a smoke break on the deck during my dinner despite not being one of the motel's paid guests; deck access from the street too easy for such deadbeats. Also didn't like the couple in the room 2 doors down who decided to view the ocean from in front of my open window instead of their own. It's all about consideration and not being oblivious to others, people!!
1) Deck where you can have breakfast at sunrise & watch the ocean. 2) Away from noisiest, busiest parts of Beach Ave, yet still easy access to town & highway. 3) Staff nice & helpful.
