Motel was very nice considering the competitive rate. Well-run, and only a block from the Grand Hotel and new Ocean Club, so walking distance to good bars & restaurants. Beach right across the street. The window unit for air conditioning featured a constant-speed fan, so that kept outside noise out. First time I've ever been given a remote control for... More

We have stayed here numerous times through the years and have tried several other places in Wildwood Crest. This is our top choice. Management staff (Janet) is always pleasant. Rooms are large with microwave and minifrig, small round table w/2 chairs ,and are always very clean and the price is very good. Motel is small: one story with no indoor... More

Stayed one night in an ocean view room. The location is ideal - across the street from the beach, and walking distance to town, but far enough away that it's quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful. Free parking is convenient. The rooms are clean enough and a good size. The furniture and bathroom are dated, and the bathroom is smallish,... More

Stayed here for our second time and loved it! Had our 8 month old with us and truly enjoyed the close proximity to the beach and walking distance to restaurants and attractions. Some may be put off by the distance to the outdoor mall but we live in the city and walk everywhere so the blocks seemed to fly by... More

We went there for my son's Coast Guard Graduation. No one was there but everything we needed was available. Hotel was cozy and comfortable. We had a great view of the beach right across the street.

The Buckingham is a reasonable hotel on Beach Drive with a gorgeous view from the second floor. The price is much lower than the other hotels by about $30 a night. The only thing you give up is a pool, and I don't want a pool anyway. Now, if you are looking for a new hotel with lots of amenities... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Buckingham Motel in Cape May, NJ for Memorial Day Weekend. We stayed in the standard regular room, with one king-sized bed and with no kitchen or ocean-front view. We couldn't have picked a better motel for our stay. It is a very affordable motel for tourists and travelers. The motel is right... More

This is a great place to stay. My husband and I were amazed how clean it was. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great location to the beach, restaurants, and shops. The only downfall we could think of was the fact that there is no pool. I would absolutely stay here again and would highly recommend it to friends.

After being quoted more than I wanted to pay for a pres-season room I found the Buckingham and got a neat little king room with a small deck with an ocean view. I was surprised at the little amenities, iron and ironing board, coffee maker and coffee, microwave, fridge, free fast wifi and plenty of cable tv channels. The room... More

Ours was an impromptu trip to cape may and so we didn't have advanced booking. We looked up tripadvisor and booked a room at this motel. We were pleasantly surprised by the room. Though not fancy it served our needs, especially for the price.
