Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great variety of rooms to choose from. Don't wait to book room if you know when you are visiting beautiful Cape May, NJ. 3rd floor could be a challenge to climb steps if you have trouble climbing them. Great choice of breakfast. Use of bikes and beach chairs saves a lot of room for traveling.

We stayed a night over Mother's Day weekend and were very stressed leading up to our stay, making me wonder if it was worth the bother. The only dinner reservation I could get was at 5:15 (we booked late) and the only room was a doomer on the 3rd floor. Still, they far exceeded my expectations and our server at...

What more can you want? A beautiful house, updated rooms & bathrooms, sounds from & sights of the ocean, friendly & accommodating staff, and a wonderful & filling breakfast served on a sunny porch fulfilled what we were looking for in Cape May.

We had a one night getaway in Cape May, and the Peter Shields was a perfect place to stay. Several blocks north of the historic district, it was quiet and quite charming. We had room 2, second floor front, with an ocean view and gas fireplace. Very comfortable bed, cozy room, nice bathroom with 2 shower heads and plenty of...

My wife and I have stayed numerous times at the Peter Shields Inn and always have had a great time. The staff has always gone out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

My birthday fell on St Patrick's day weekend so we decided to take advantage of the specials at Peter Shield's Inn. It was a lovely stay. We unfortunately took the last available room which was far too small and had no fireplace like the others but we still enjoyed our stay. This inn is not handicap accessible and the rooms...

My fiance and I had a wonderful stay at the Peter Shields Inn! Our only complaint is that the room we were staying in had a bathroom door that required a lot of attempts to close properly each time. Other than that, perfect getaway!

It doesn't get any better 👍 Service of the staff. The quality or the food. Wine and cheese in the afternoon is of quality as well as complementary.The location is right on the ocean. Truly a wonderful and relaxing two days . Will be returning again.
