“Right down the center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

The Victorian Motel is perfectly situated at the foot of the pedestrian mall and is only a few blocks walk to the beach. Great for kids, you can feel comfortable letting them walk to the shops without having to cross major streets. The price was very reasonble given the location (if you are looking for bottom budget, it's best to stay outside of town.) The rooms are spacious (we had a suite with 2 doubles and a sofabed) and housekeeping keeps them very clean and spotless. The walls were rather thin so we did hear neighbors noises and plumbing sounds from time to time. Beds and linens were spartan but not out of line for the price range. But I wish they could splurge for shampoo in the bathroom and note paper and pens by the phone which I would expect anywhere!

Room Tip: Top floor will be the quietest.

The Victorian was a big favorite of my late mother's, so I looked forward to staying there. I hadn't been in many years, and was and pleasantly surprised by the place. The room was immaculate, updated, well-equipped and well-appointed. Did I mention it was immaculate? I dealt with two different front-desk staff members, and both were exceedingly pleasant and helpful. The location is unbeatable, and considering the location and accommodations, the rates are extremely reasonable. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I had a spacious two-room suite - loved it.

We knew the reviews were good, and the price was cheap...so we went. The PROS; location is right smack in the heart of everything. Walk to shops, dining, beach. However most things were closed during our stay. Still, the room was very clean, staff was friendly. Motel has wifi. We booked a two room econo, had what we needed as far as appliances and dishes go. Now the CONS; NO COFFEE ok so i lived, but the little touches do make the difference. Living room sofa was very scratchy,no dvd player, thank God for the wifi so my kid could watch netflix. But the main thing for us was that the beds were extremely uncomfy and old, the bedding scratchy. Granite counter tops are nice, but the furniture should have been updated first. Also ac/heater only operates in the living area not bedrooms. So living area was hot bedroom was cold. Its ok, but we will not stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review.

We take our reviews seriously...very seriously...We wish you would have brought this situation to our attention during or at least at the conclusion of your stay. We would love to have you notify us of what room you were in, but in the mean time, we will do a room by room inspection to see just which if any beds we have not replaced during our recent upgrades.

We are pleased you found most everything else to your liking. Our staff goes out of its way to please and be friendly. Our housekeeping department takes a lot of pride in the standards of cleanliness.

We spent four nights at the Victorian motel in earlyFebr uary and returned for four nights this past week. The motel is very convenient to all the birdwatching sites in Cape May County. We appreciate the convenience offered by the efficiency units because we enjoy cooking. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The motel staff is friendly and helpful.
