The inn is a wonderful gem. Rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean and reasonable. The inn keepers are friendly, hospitable and like family to all guests. The location is next to a park with fountains and in easy walking distance to the Washington Mall with all the restaurants and shops or the very clean beach. Breakfast is an event and... More

Mary Ann and Jay do an exceptional job. The breakfasts are unique and tasty. The afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres are a nice treat before heading off to dinner. The location is great. Close to the ocean/beaches and the downtown shopping district and the myriad restaurants that Cape May has to offer. They really do make you feel that you... More

A diamond in its natural state has no luster until it is painstakingly cleaned and polished, so too for Inn at the Park. Mary Ann and Jay have taken a building, which at minimum consisted of four walls and a roof, and turned it into a welcoming haven of hospitality. After many years staying at another B&B in the Wildwod/Cape... More

After visiting Inn at the Park a few years ago with my girlfriend at the time, I loved it so much that I ended up coming back and proposing to her on the beach in Cape May, along with a group of friends to surprise her afterwards. The B&B owners, Mary Ann and Jay, were extremely accommodating to my (many)... More

This was our first experience with a B&B (we went the first weekend in December) and from the moment we arrived until we left, we were made to feel most welcome by Mary Ann & Jay. . They are incredible hosts and their B&B was just beautiful and in a fantastic location, just blocks from shopping and the beach. The... More

We have been visiting the Inn at the Park for a few years running. If you love wine, incredible food and hospitality then this is for you. Jay and Maryann are the most wonderful innkeepers in all of Cape May. From the moment you walk in the door to the time you leave they do their best to make sure... More

All of the positive reviews on TA are 100% accurate. Mary Ann and Jay are fantastic people and make you feel welcome the minute you arrive. The breakfast' and afternoon happy hours are top notch. The location couldn't be better either. We will be back again for sure.

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend, and had a really great time. The owners clearly care a lot about their guests' experience, and they worked hard to make sure we were always comfortable and happy. The breakfast was absolutely delicious both times--if nothing else, stay for the food! They also served a nice appetizer and wine in... More

We had a great time at The Inn at the Park. Mary Ann and Jay were wonderful hosts. The inn is meticulously decorated for the Cape May victorian feel. Our room was in the main house and had a nice patio off the bathroom. Breakfast was very good and it was great to sit and chat with other guests. We... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at the Inn at the Park. My husband has some mobility issues, so we were delighted to find a lovely B&B with a 1st floor room that only have 2 small entry steps. Although not ADA compliant, so not appropriate for a guest in a wheel chair, the shower was an easy step-in. It... More
