My husband and I stayed in Room 10 on the 3rd floor of the old house for two days. The seadfood fritata at breakfast was out of this world. The room was darling, bed was comfortable, bath was a good size and clean. Amenities included a single cup coffee maker, air conditioner, tv, ice bucket & corkscrew/can opener. The staff... More

We just returned from our 5 night stay at Elaine's and we loved it. The staff were friendly, especially our housekeeping person who made towel animals for my daughter every day! We enjoyed the porch restaurant one evening which had good food and good service. I was not disturbed by the live music playing every night because it finished by... More

Our 1st experience at Elaines was in October of 2013.I thought it was ghost hunters weekend but it was not. We stayed in room 5 the mermaid room and it was very nice. It poured all weekend but that did not stop us from great drinks and company at Elaine's bar, a cute show and dinner in the halloween themed... More

First time going there was a "Haunted Mansion" theme room. There was an atmosphere of Victorian/Edwardian . Now every year afterwards it is becoming more and more like a beach bar atmosphere , like Lori from Pennsylvannia said in her review. We too, like Lori stayed away from the loud music and partying of the late afternoon . To have... More

Spend two nights in this centrally located bed and breakfast. The breakfast was unusual for a b&b in that it was off a regular breakfast menu and served on an outdoor porch. The food was terrific, and eating on the porch was very nice. At 5:00 each evening they have musical entertainment and one can sit on an upstairs veranda... More

Stayed for 3 nights at this property. Overall, we had a nice stay - the good parts were very good, and the bad parts were mild annoyances - but I think this property needs to decide if it wants to be an upscale B&B or a kitschy beach party spot. Right now it feels a bit schizophrenic. The good: the... More

My husband and love this Inn in Cape May. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The only negative was wish they had a flat screen tv, instead of old style TV. The breakfast is so delicious, the waffles, french toast and my Husband's favorite 2,2,2 special. The porch is so nice to enjoy the food or for cocktails... More
