My girlfriend and I recently stayed at the Luther Ogden Inn for a long weekend getaway. The Inn is conveniently located 2 blocks from the beach, and a short 5-10 minute walk to "The Mall," the main shopping district in Cape May. Jan and Mark were both friendly and welcoming. They are both actively involved in the Cape May community... More

We rarely stay at B&Bs but will re-think our lodging preferences following a wonderful experience at the Luther Ogden Inn. The place was very nice but the warm hospitality of owners Jan and Mark are what made the experience memorable. Breakfast on the large front porch was a real treat. We enjoyed our stay and will be back.

We loved the Luther Ogden Inn. It is located within 2 blocks of the beach. Jan and Mark are friendly and helpful, and were able to give us suggestions of restaurants and things to do. We loved sitting out on the lovely porch and just relaxing. Food was great. Great value for the money and plan on returning.

This was my first time staying at a B&B so I wasn't sure what to expect needless to say I will be staying at B&B's more often. It was such a pleasant experience. Upon arrival we sat down and chit chatted with Jan. She is very knowledgeable about Cape May and the things to see in the area. She showed... More

As soon as you enter the premises, the odor of mildew is apparent. Room 2's air conditioner spreads the blight all around the room. Luckily, the weather was lovely and we could leave the windows open. (A better eye for color and pattern would help the awful wallpaper/coverlet mismatch. A chair in the room would provide more comfort.)

While we were chatting on the porch as you were about to check out, you told me that there was a smell of mildew coming from the AC. I thanked you for alerting me and said I am in and out of the room all the time and have never smelled anything. You then admitted that you were sensitive to... More

Weekend getaway, perfect location, close to beach and shopping district. The Innkeepers Jan and Mark are wonderful people, very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was absolutely delightful! Rooms were very clean and a large shower in bathroom. Very comfortable and homey. Thanks Jan and Mark for a wonderful experience!

My husband and I have stayed at the Luther Ogden many times over 15 years and have always enjoyed our stay. We love the wrap around porch and the delicious breakfasts served there; the clean and comfortable rooms and the friendliness of the innkeepers. It's always fun to meet new guests, especially those visiting Cape May for the 1st time.... More

We're glad you enjoyed the location, our wraparound porch, and our breakfasts. As for the towel problem, you should have let me know you were not satisfied. We absolutely do not send our towels out to a service. I have no idea where you got that idea. I personally wash all linens here at the inn and certainly use soap!... More

My husband and I spent time in Cape May over President's weekend. Jan and Mark were wonderful hosts. Jan made a dinner reservation for us at a local restaurant which was a great convenience for us. The room was neat and clean and breakfast was delightful! We highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for your Cape May visit!
