My husband and I had dinner on the porch at Elaine's to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It was PERFECT. Danielle, our server, was attentive and easy to talk to... We were greeted with a smile and presented with 2 glasses of champagne to celebrate! The meal was incredible and listening to live music as we ate was a bonus.... More

The atmosphere at Elaine's was so pretty. Our server, Lexi, was just super. She was friendly and was right on with her recommendations. My friends and I really enjoyed our meal and catching up. Was a fun evening. So glad we picked Elaine's! We will be back!

My wife and I stayed here when I had to visit Cape May for my Grandfather's funeral. The owner, Pat, was very quick to accommodate us in such a short manor. When we arrived on a Thursday night, there was a steel drum band playing and the outside bar and patio were alive! It was a beautiful and fun atmosphere.... More

Elaine's is the most relaxed, fun and entertaining place to stay! We had an awesome time the four days that my husband and I stayed there. The staff is right on point and so friendly! We loved our room, room four, which is claimed to be haunted. Let's just say, we were surprised and had fun with it! The rooms... More

Lovely, friendly Victorian classic. Room and beds are comfy and made me smile! The upstairs enclosed porch is magical in the middle of the night when you can't sleep...just listen to the wind chimes blowing in the breeze. The breakfast is amazing, but the first morning was quite delayed in service. They fixed this on Day 2. I think they... More

Another GREAT stay at Elaine's! Just got back from a four day stay at Elaine's and once again it couldn't have been any better! Our group of eight fun loving ladies had the best time ever! We booked four rooms and loved every one of them. Room #4 is the perfect place to congregate because of the wonderful private sun... More

Another great evening at Elaine's! I've been here many times and each time, it's always a blast! We took 5 kids last night and they loved it! Food is fantastic and plenty of choices. The actors are fantastic and the shows are always fun. They interact with children and adults throughout which makes it fun for all. This place is... More
