One half block from the ocean/beach/promenade , right on the edge of the main bustle of shopping and restaurants, this well done, newly remodeled hotel was a perfect place to kick back and enjoy the loveliness that is Cape May. You are within walking distance to most everything. An affordable room with a kitchenette, a separate sitting room with dining...

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.

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...
