We just did a last minute one-night stay in Cape May and chose Elaine's because we had stayed there before. The staff were very friendly, professional and accommodating. The cleanliness of the room and the common areas of the inn were beyond reproach. What was new for us was the dinner menu, which time did not allow us to try,... More

We stayed for one night at this Victorian bed-and-breakfast during our Cape May weekend getaway. We were given room #8 and, we found it to be both comfortably cozy and, elegant. The breakfast on the porch was superb ... starting with the detail that all tables had white line tablecloths and, linen napkins (hate paper napkins!!!). The breakfast choices presented... More

We love this place. It is beautiful, with plenty of parking spaces (often hard to find). The rooms are well appointed and the staff are super friendly. We were lucky to be there for a Belmont Stakes party. $10 for fabulous appetizers and a pay as you go bar. Very classy. This place is within walking distance of everything in... More

The weekend of June 6,7 and 8th spent at Elaine's was a gift for combination Mother's day and Father's day from our kids. It has to be, by far, the best gift my husband and I ever received! We stayed in the mermaid room which was beautiful and very clean. The staff could not have been nicer. They went out... More

Breakfasts were... More
