Pluses:
Room was ok and generally clean.
Location and view.
Generally friendly staff but no one falling over to make you feel welcome.
Minuses:
Too far from eateries, so walking to those areas is not easy.
WiFi is nonexistent and spotty at best, no attempt to remedy except someone checking their phone (they should STOP advertising free WiFi).
Exceptionally noisy air conditioner.
Too pricy for what is offered (a suggestion, they could minimally offer coffee and tea, and I do no mean coffee and tea in the room).
Overall, not a place one would anxiously wait to go back to.

I spent 3 nights here. Great beach location; reminded me of roadside motels from childhood car trips. Promised free wifi was non-existent ("too many walls" in my room!), air conditioner ROARED, bathroom exhaust fan (on with light) ROARED. Add necessary dehumidifier and fridge cycling on and off, and try to sleep thru the night!
Room was charming but not really good enough. Cost was 1/2 to 1/3 of other rooms in town, so let price be your guide.
Wish it had been nicer, it had a lot of positives like large room and low key charm.

Room Tip: Stay in the rooms on the 2nd floor for beach view, beware of room 14 (no beach view, and described above).

If you prefer a quiet, affordable place with a view of the Cape May Beaches then stay at the Buckingham Motel. This was our 3rd year family vacation and stayed again at the Buckingham. The entire staff from front desk to housekeeping are courteous and do a great job. Will do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: Higher floor has rooms with direct ocean view

Location is the only reason to stay here. Nothing wrong with rooms, but nothing great. From the website it is pretty clear you won't see a friendly staff. However, I was really shocked at the apathy and lack of any compensation when our fire alarm went off at 4am when I stayed there in August 2016. Owners were just annoyed they had to get up and replace the faulty alarm, hello... I am the one paying to stay here and of course after all that my two kids wouldn't go back to sleep. They offered absolutely no compensation.
