South Winds hotel is a great place to spend even off season time. We've been here in October. It located just a 1/2 block from the ocean, and very close to the Nature Conservancy and downtown. Rooms are renovated with "ship like" style, well furnished, very clean and plenty of sun light. The host is very welcomed and responsive.

The apartment was very clean, modern with nice facilities and in a great location. We had two bedrooms, a living room area, and a neat kitchen with a table that could seat 6 if needed, at a reasonable price. The owner and staff were wonderful. Our favorite place in Cape May.

staff/owners very nice but did not comply with our request to clean and to fix the lock on the door. There was grease(like a glob of yellow) on the refrigerator door, grease around the sink, stove. The drawers had hair and dirt. The deadbolt never got fixed. He did come and wiped out the drawers and half attempt to clean...

I am so sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with our motel as all of our guests have been thrilled with our facilities and staff. It is highly unusual for a guest not to be provided 100% satisfaction. Our housekeeping staff does provide daily maid service so I am confused as to why you waited till you checked...

Was pleasantly surprised how lovely this place is. Arrived very early on a Saturday morning, obviously room not ready but was given a parking pass to carpark. Very helpful father and son at desk. Came back after relaxing day on the beach. Room good size with separate seating area and a fully equipped kitchen. Went out for dinner and only...

I stayed with my wife and teenage son for four nights in one of the 2BR units. Spacious enough, efficient A/C, new furnishings and appliances. Quiet neighborhood just 1/2 block to the beach, but close to Washington Street Mall. Outside showers and clothes line for wet towels and swim suits. Also three BBQ grills and picnic tables for guest use....

My family of four stayed here for three nights in August. We had a very good experience. We cannot say enough good things about the owners who run the South Winds!

Great place. Really clean and newly renovated. Staff very friendly. An easy walk to the beach and on the quieter end of Beach Avenue. Room was a two room suite and very spacious.. Beds are very comfortable and a/c worked well. Entrance to beach just a half block. Highly recommend!
