I've stayed at the John Wesley bed and breakfast twice and loved it both times. The food was wonderful and my host was very friendly. My room was immaculate and the antiques throughout the house are beautiful. I can't wait to return.

This was a nice place, but to be honest we expected more from the top rated B&B in Cape May. It was fun to stay in such an old house, our room was perfectly clean, and the beds were comfy, but we did not get the same wonderful welcoming feeling that other reviewers reported. We were welcomed mostly with rules... More

I am shocked to hear that you were “not feelin’ it” in our home. In advance of your arrival, I called you to see how your commute was going. In preparation for your arrival I lowered and made up the Murphy bed and provided additional towels and face cloth. Our rooms are designed for two. Occasionally, we make an exception... More

The John Wesley Inn is a beautifully restored victorian bed and breakfast. Bonnie and Lance are great innkeepers and make you feel welcome upon arrival. The Inn and rooms are spotlessly clean, nicely appointed with victorian furnishings and period pieces, but also include modern amenities such as private baths, air conditioning, wifi and TV. The dining room and parlor are... More

Lovely Victorian with beautifully appointed rooms and common areas. The fireplaces in each room is a nice touch, even if they are electric. The owners are very sweet and welcoming.. The upstairs common room is terrifically stocked with ice, ice buckets, and a refrigerator to store food and drinks. In the summer, they have beach chairs and towels for guests.... More

Everything was done perfectly and with great attention to detail. Highly recommended! The room was comfortable, breakfast was very tasty and the house felt like stepping back in time but with modern amenities. Centrally located and close to the water.

My wife and I return every year for a Valentine's Day weekend and we return to the best B&B in Cape May every time. Beautiful home, clean and comfy rooms and in room fireplaces to keep off the chill. If you are looking for a romantic weekend, look no farther. The inn keeper Bonnie will take care of any special... More

My wife and I escaped to the John Wesley Inn for my wife's birthday in January. Bonnie and Lance couldn't have been more accommodating. This beautifully restored Inn set the stage for an amazing evening in front of our bedside fireplace. For the perfect B&B experience in Cape May, be sure to contact Bonnie. I know we will be returning... More

Bonnie and Lance were very welcoming to us. Our room was incredibly well-maintained and immaculate. Our breakfast was delicious and Bonnie was very hospitable. We look forward to staying at the John Wesley Inn again as it is our new favorite B&B.
