My wife and I just spent three delightful days at Mission Inn in Cape May. Location was ideal: one block from beach, short walk to good restaurants. This is a very attractive and comfortable B & B. Service is beyond compare. Food is delicious. Susan and Ray, and their terrific staff are committed to making their guests happy in every... More

As everyone else says, the Mission Inn is terrific. Susan thinks of absolutely everything. She was quick to accommodate my needs for a firmer pillow and gluten free, vegetarian food. I was served a delicious gluten free breakfast every morning and some of the hors d'ouevres that were offered every afternoon were labeled gluten free. I always had special crackers... More

Probably the nicest innkeepers we have ever met. Our room was ready early and we were able to park at the Inn before checking in and not have to feed the meters. The breakfast was delicious with a great selection of juices and plenty of fresh coffee. Only 1 block from the beach and an easy walk to fine dining.... More

My husband and I just returned from another beautiful week at The Mission Inn! We chose this B&B last year based on a friend's recommendation. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality, service and whole experience. Susan and Ray treat you like a family member home for a visit. They can not do enough for you to make your stay in... More

We just returned from our 7 visit to the Mission Inn and I have no complaints! Susan and Ray continue to outdo themselves. Nothing is too much. They are charming, accommodating, helpful and aim to always please. Leslie, who is in the kitchen for breakfast, makes wonderful dishes that will certainly please your palette. And Janet, who is there in... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Mission Inn around Memorial Day weekend for our baby moon. Susan and her staff were wonderful and attentive. The warmth and kindness displayed was beyond what we were expecting. We look forward to making it down to Cape May to stay at the Mission Inn again some time soon.

From my first contact with Susan, I knew this was going to be a special Bed and Breakfast. She makes every effort to assure you that your visit with them will be warm and welcoming. I based my decision to select this Bed and Breakfast on other reviews and was not the least bit disappointed. Not only is Susan and... More

This was our fourth annual getaway to the Mission Inn, and as always it was a wonderful experience. We always feel like a part of the family when we arrive and are treated to great company and great food during our visit. You can bet that we'll be back again, thanks Susan and Ray!

To say this inn is exceptional to see is an understatement. The spanish mission motif speaks for itself, and is as charming as you would expect down to every detail. The down home hospitality of Susan and Ray, and their honest and friendly dispositions make you feel like you made new friends, and thinking about your next visit. You cannot... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Recently awarded the 2013 Travelers Choice Award for Travel by Trip Advisor. The Mission Inn Bed and Breakfast is not your typical Cape May B&B. Susan Babineau-Roberts and her husband Raymond Roberts cordially invite you to experience the charm of their California Spanish Mission Style Bed and Breakfast. You will find The Mission Inn guest rooms to be bright, airy, tastefully decorated, creative restful place for the weary traveler as was the purpose of the original twenty-one (21) California missions.Each guest room was themed after one of the missions, using colors and designs Susan had observed on her trip. The common areas were themed to reflect the warmth of the missions. Each year additional improvements are planned and implemented. Return guests are always finding the "little changes" that reflect the attention to detail so noticeable at the Inn.Book one of our 8 Rooms before they fill up! We are an Inn for all seasons and open all year round. ... more   less
