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...

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.

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.
