My husband and I love the tidy, unpretentious mom and pop style of The Buckingham Motel. Right on the main drag across from the beach, The Buckingham has basic amenities that make it all a simple, yet gem of a motel. With prices that are reasonable by Cape May standards, it is easy to forgo the charming B & B...

I stayed here for two nights in a motel room at the right-side of the building. The woman at the reception was friendly and check-in went quickly. The room was not very large, but comfortable enough. There'a a refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker and TV in the room. The bathroom was OK. There's also an outside shower at the back of the...

This motel is a small gem in a great location for the price. The motel itself is a typical, very small, no frills shore motel, but who spends time inside the motel room when you're down the shore. From reading other reviews before I went, I thought the rooms would be extremely small, but they're not. They are a decent...

Just stayed for a weekend at the Buckingham - a selection made based on these reviews. We found the Buckingham to be absoutely perfect for our needs and even made us question why we spend so much at other hotels for the "frills". Staff was exceptionally friendly at both check in and whenever we asked a question. Our room was...

My wife and I were looking for a value hotel in Cape May and chose the Buckingham based on positive reviews. Honestly, after staying there I really have lost faith in the whole review system! While the location across the street from the beach is excellent, the rest of the experience was not. The check in is in a little...

We stayed at Buckingham Motel 2 nights with 2 small children. The location could not have been better. The only noise to be heard were the waves crashing right across the street. It is in reasonable walking distance to lots of shopping areas. We stayed in Apt #1, which was very roomy and clean. We will be staying here again.

Cape May is structured so that a majority of the motels/hotels are along the street closest to the ocean (i.e., Beach Drive) while the B&B's are slightly more inland. If you are looking to stay in town without looking for a B&B, the Buckingham Motel seems to be one of the best locations to stay for the price. Our room...

Great location, walking distance to the promenade, restaurants, shops and just a walk across the street to the beach (beach tag required). The area is low key with alot of residential houses. Every morning people would bike around town or walk the promenade. There is no pool for the kids or if you don't like swimming in the ocean. If...
