This American family owned motel, definitely shows how much pride they have in their motel. At first I was leery that booking was through phone or their website, but when we pulled into the parking lot, my wife burst out "It's so cute" (The price was right too!) We received a very friendly welcome, and our room was spotless and... More

The Blue Fish Inn suited our family's needs perfectly! Nice clean rooms, a beautiful swimming pool, and a nice area for grilling out back. Worked perfectly for our family and I am sure we will be back again.

We stayed in a room with bath, both small but manageable. The room was immaculate and nicely decorated in a "summer close to the shore" way. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, it is two blocks from the beach one way and ten minutes by foot from Washington Street pedestrian mall another way; always fun to walk through Cape May...
