My girlfriend and I decided to visit Cape May from Brooklyn, NY on 4th of July weekend for a little R&R after a particularly hectic few months at work. Because we decided to do this at the last minute (the night before we left), finding a room online was impossible and we ended up settling on a day-trip instead of... More

So much to say about Elaine's! My sister, mother, aunt and I spent the night for a quick getaway to celebrate my mom's birthday. We had so much fun! Elaine's is conveniently located a short walk from Washington Street for shopping, restaurants, etc., and the beautiful beach is a couple of blocks further (a $6 badge is required to get... More

Spent a weekend at Elaine's and had a great time. Rooms are clean, breakfast was excellent, service good. Elaine's is walking distance to everything, one block to the mall, two to the beach. And always something happening right there, bands, parties, etc...

Gorgeous Victorian antiques abound in this themed location suited to the overall vibe of Cape May. Public lounge spaces also full of historical pieces. Bar and restaurant on site up the B&B status (as well as dinner theater stage - we did not attend show) and importantly did not interfere or noise cancel the romantic, relaxed and slow ambiance.

Stayed here Memorial Day Weekend and had a great time. The place is clean and the staff is friendly. Breakfast was very good. It's a restaurant setting and if you are not into sitting at a table with people you don't know it's a good b&b option. We stayed in room four, allegedly haunted. Had some fun with that. Room...

We stayed in Room Six for a long weekend. It was spacious, nicely appointed and clean. The rate included breakfast which was excellent! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location was excellent, just a few blocks from the Washington Street Mall. We were able to walk to dinner and around town. Nice music in the evenings. Beware of... More

We stayed at Elaines as a weekend getaway in the offseason and it was great. We stayed in room 4 (highly recommend) and loved the private balcony and people watching. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean the rooms were, especially the bathroom, and the wife was thrilled to see a selection of Philosophy Bath Products. We had dinner and... More

Spent the weekend at Elaine's. First time in Cape May. I was very impressed. The Inn is located within walking distance to everything. Everyone was extremely polite and friendly. The room was a bit small (#13), but was immaculately clean. The bathroom was spacious and clean as well. Loved that it had a bar. Didn't have dinner there but ate... More

My boyfriend and our two friends stayed here in July 2014 and truly enjoyed ourselves. The location of this B&B is perfect. It is centrally located and an easy walk to everything. The staff was very attentive and helpful. It's nice that there is a bar in the place because a couple of times when we came back home it... More
