I had a wonderful one-night stay at the Inn of Cape May in late June, 2013. And for $85, I wasn't expecting such a pleasant experience. I booked the smallest room, billed as "very small" on the inn's website. The room was perfect for one person and was nicely decorated and situated. I think it would have been fine for two people as well. It was smaller than the average hotel room but not by much. The inn is centrally located, across the street from the beach and promenade and an easy walk to the shops on Jackson Street. It also has a pool, which is unusual for B&Bs, and a very nice restaurant, where I had dinner and breakfast -- both very good. I was attending a wedding a needed accommodations for only one night but was having trouble finding a B&B in Cape May because many require a two-night stay. I found the Inn of Cape May to be clean and comfortable, with lovely features such as a wrap-round porch, with lots of rockers. A perfect place to read a book. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The inn offers free parking across the street and the staff was kind enough to let me keep my car there at no cost on the second day as I attended the wedding. It's also around the corner from a bike rental, which I used for an early-morning ride along the promenade. I spent little time in the room, which did have an ocean view, though not a straight-on view. The room suited me because it had a window that opened and I prefer that to air-conditioning. But instead of the ocean, I could only hear the very noisy air-conditioner on a building across the street. I could barely hear the unit when I closed the window. Breakfast was included, though not in unlimited portions. I was told I had a certain dollar amount of credit for the meal. I don't know how they work that but I had more credit than I needed. I ordered two eggs, home fries, toast and coffee and had $3 credit to spare. I should note that I am not a picky person and that I don't stay at five-star hotels so you may demand more from your hotels than I do. But I am particular about cleanliness and friendliness, and found both in abundance at the Inn of Cape May.
