On our vacation in Cape May we had breakfast twice at the Sea Salt. The wait staff if very attentive. The coffee is Lavazza and superb! I had the baked eggs with spinach and goat cheese and my son had the eggs Benedict. The eggs were cooked perfectly. The potatoes were golden delicacies cooked in real butter. Just perfect. Our...

We have been staying at ROTS for years and keep returning. Located across the street from the beach, it is impeccably clean and well kept. Both Robyn and Jodi are delightful and will note your preferences. Atlantic Vista provides glorious views of the beach. Breakfasts are delicious. Can't wait to return yet again!

We've stayed in quite a few B& B;s in Cape May but Rhythm of the Sea was the best. The attention to detail is striking from the time you make reservations to when you leave- it's all carefully thought out in terms of what would be best for guests. The porch that overlooks the ocean is comfortable and has the... More

We have stayed at ROTS a few times in the past, overall enjoy it. The reviewer who suggested common areas are old obviously never heard of the Arts & Crafts era. Stickley furniture is classic, made better than any new pieces you can find, and meant to last a lifetime. The staff (esp Jodie) is very courteous and helpful, and... More

Maybe it was the great weather. Or, maybe it was sitting on the porch looking out over the ocean. Or, maybe it was the friendly smile of Jodie, the innkeeper, or the delicious breakfast, or the beautifully landscaped gardens. Or, maybe it was all of the above! Whatever it was, we had a wonderful stay at the Rhythm of the... More

I stayed here for 2 nites in mid June. A very clean and comfortable property, however the breakfast could be improved by adding lean meat protein and some sort of pastry. Also, the interior common areas could use some new furniture. Jodie is very friendly and accommodating.

We selected this bed and breakfast because it is not your typical "victorian" style B&B. The home is open, inviting and comfortable. The beach is directly across the street; you couldn't ask for a prettier setting! Robyn has lived there a long time and is knowledgeable about places to dine and visit. Jodie is a fabulous innkeeper; always multi tasking... More

This is the opposite of the typical Victorian doll houses Cape May is known for. It's craftsman style, complete with Stickley furniture throughout the home. The owner (Robyn) & innkeeper (Jodie) are both very nice, helpful people. My wife and I were guests during the "quiet" season in late April, 2014. The breakfast was different each day, and very good.... More

This Inn is right on the beach street. You just walk across the street and your are standing on the beach! The owners were very friendly and the breakfast was outstanding each morning. There is on site parking. I thought it was a bit pricey for November, I believe we paid $255.00 a night. They advertise pillow top mattresses but... More

This bed and breakfast is located on Beach Drive in Cape May right on the ocean front. We have stayed here three times and have enjoyed each visit. The house is a bit different than most B & B’s in Cape May in that it is not a Victorian. It is Craftsman Style and has its own features and history.... More
