My husband and I visited The Mission Inn for a weekend get-a-way. I can't say enough good things about the Inn and the proprietors. As we traveled from home to the Inn, we received a call from Ray, the owner, who was just checking to see when we would arrive and to let us know that we could check in... More

Stayed the weekend, and, like everyone else who has reviewed this place, would definitely recommend it. Okay, it is pricey for a bed and breakfast, but what you get is so special, you will leave with a warm glow from the gas fireplaces to the homey guest lounge with tons of refreshments and the tasty "happy two-hour" treats. Each breakfast... More

What a beautiful, romantic weekend my girlfriend and I had at The Mission Inn. The room (San Buenaventura) was everything you could ask for, yet more. Comfortable warm furnishings, sumptuous bed, and a flat panel tv to watch March Madness (for 5 minutes only). The inn, is quiet, cozy, filled with history and character. Ray and Susan are as warm...

The Mission Inn's accomodations as well as the innkeepers are warm and inviting. The inn is beautiufully designed and maintained. I am pretty certain it was the best breakfast I have ever had. Susand and Ray are very helpful overall, gave some direction on eateries and called for reservations. It was really one of the most delightful stays and absoultley... More

We usually prefer the anonymity of a hotel but are so glad we chose to stay at the Mission Inn. Besides making us feel welcome, Susan and Ray seemed completely relaxed--giving no indication of how hard they must work behind the scenes to make the Mission Inn function so flawlessly. Special shout-out to Leslie for the extraordinary breakfasts, too.

My husband and I just returned from a stay at the Mission Inn and what a special time it was. It was our first bed and breakfast ever and this place definitely set the bar quite high! Our room was beautiful (we stayed in the San Francisco) and breakfast was extraordinary! Susan and Ray are absolutely the sweetest and made... More

Ray and Susan were absolutely right on top of our weekend stay. We have stayed at 4 B+B's over the years but The Mission Inn by far exceeded our expectations. The hospitality was never ending and I can't tell you how awesome the meals were. The unlimited coffee, teas, conversation was there for the asking. My wife and I were... More

The proprietors of this amazing Inn, Susan and Ray, are to be commended for their uncompromising dedication to hospitality. I've stayed in several five-star hotels which could not hold a candle to this place. Remarkable attention to every possible detail. The rooms are beautifully appointed in a Spanish Mission style archtecture. Breakfasts and afternoon hors d'oeuvres are all fresh, local... More

Our third time staying at a B&B in Cape May was such an incredible experience that we made another reservation for July before leaving. Previous stays had been at the typical Victorian style homes and although quaint and historically interesting they were too similar and we were looking for something different. The Mission Inn is just that, as it's name... More

The Mission Inn is lovely. The inn keepers, Susan and Ray, are kind and welcoming; the food is gourmet and delicious, (breakfast and afternoon hors d'oeuvres) and the rooms...the rooms are over the top! The amazing artwork includes fabulous California missions recreated as headboards, murals on the ceilings, the bathrooms, the closets, the hallways providing unexpected and wonderful surprises; cozy...

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.

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
