We had an absolutely fantastic time during our stay in apartment A! The apartment is beautifully decorated, immaculate and very comfortable! The parking was a great perk, so easy to park and walk to everything… the location is absolutely perfect! Bonnie and Lance were lovely and so welcoming! We are looking forward to our next stay, which is already booked!

We stayed in Apt B for 2 nights. It was very spacious and very comfortable. The apartment was spotless and is clearly well maintained. There are two sleeping areas with very comfortable bedding and both the downstairs and upstairs feature ceiling fans in addition to a guest controlled A/C thermostat. The only part of the lodging that was a little disappointing was the shower stall. I know that some renovations have been done in this unit and perhaps replacement of that shower stall is next on the list. The location of this apartment is wonderful. It is a short walk to the beach and the street is very quiet . Made for great sleeping at night!! There is an adjacent unit but we never heard a sound from next door. All in all very pleased with our stay and would recommend to friends.

Debbie and I stayed at the apartment "B" over the labor day weekend at it was fantastic... I would recommend you use their parking because almost everything is within walking distance of the Inn , we basically parked our car and didn't need it until we left. Our hosts made us very comfortable even with the COVID Pandemic going on. We stayed at the Apartment "B", which was just fantastic... not only was the bed very comfortable but we were both pleasantly surprised how quiet things were. The apartment was very clean and with the AC it made it quite comfortable in the evenings. I can't say enough about our host ether, they are both fantastic and gracious people. They both made us feel very relaxed and even though we were late getting back from breakfast the day of checking out they understood.... When we come back to Cape May we are planning to stay at the B & B just so we can try their breakfast. I would highly recommend staying at the John Wesley Inn

We recently stayed within the B&B's apartment property adjacent to their main house, and it was the perfect retreat. Extremely clean and well equipped, was a great find (on Airbnb!). You truly can't beat this location, and the hospitality you will receive from both Bonnie and Lance even though we were not true B&B guests staying in the home. Walking distance from the best restaurants, we will certainly be back!

What an incredible stay we had during Valentine’s Weekend! Bonnie and Lance are excellent hosts and this beautiful B&B is within walking distance of everything you need in Cape May. Less then a block to the beach and the convention center and only 5 min to Washington Street shops and many fine restaurants in the area. We have stayed here all times of the year and always have a great stay and find plenty of things to do around town. Bonnie’s hot breakfasts are incredible, no matter what she is cooking up. ( Belgian waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, etc) Rooms are well furnished and extremely cozy. All rooms are great, but we love the #5 Mt Vernon. A large and cozy, romantic room with lots of privacy on the top floor. Nice warm comforter and an electric fire place for warmth and coziness during winter visits. When we first started visiting Cape May many years ago we tried a few other places to stay, but once we found the John Wesley Inn it has been the only place we will stay. Bonnie’s hospitality, the beautiful home, the incredible breakfasts and the location make the John Wesley your best choice!

Thank you, Cherngim, for your heartfelt words for the holiday season. Old Victorian homes, such as our John Wesley Inn, were made for the Christmas decor particularly from days gone by. We appreciate guests such as yourselves and look forward to your return. Health in the "New Year"....'til next time.....Bonnie

This was our first time staying in an Inn in Cape May even though we have visited Cape May for over 30 years. We were delighted we picked this Inn. It was a great location. Bonnie was delightful. The House is absolutely beautiful and we had a lovely relaxing stay completed by a beautiful breakfast the next morning. We would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful atmosphere with attention to detail. The owners were very friendly & made you feel very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious & the B&B was centrally located which we were in walking distance of shops, dinner & the candlelight tour. Totally enjoyed our stay & would definitely return.

My husband and I stayed at this bed & breakfast the Friday night of Thanksgiving weekend. As soon as we walked in, Bonnie greeted us. We were given a tour of the inn and shown to our room. The rooms are very comfortable and decorated to fit the feel of the house. The location is perfect for walking into the center of town. After walking around town, we came back to freshen up for dinner. We put the fireplace on in our room and enjoyed the Christmas music playing from the piano downstairs. The next morning, Bonnie served us a delicious breakfast with the music of Frank Sinatra playing in the background (which my husband loved). Bonnie and her husband wished us well as we checked-out. We will be back!

Dear azanzano.....you and your husband were delightful holiday guests.... the Christmas music, coming from our Baby Grand in the living room, is a holiday tradition here at the John Wesley Inn. You were eager to enjoy the festivities that our home and the city of Cape May offered this past weekend. The Christmas season has truly kicked off in our little town, and your presence was a most welcome contribution.We will see you next time.....' til then....Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!!

We stayed here for our first visit to Cape May, and thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the John Wesley Inn! It is perfectly situated one block from the ocean, and just 3 short blocks from the Washington Street Mall. Our room was very clean with all the current amenities one would want - tv, ac, electric fireplace, charging station, etc. The bed was very comfortable, with quality linens and towels. Bonnie and Lance were friendly and made us feel right at home, and Bonnie's breakfasts were delicious. We enjoyed our chats, and learning about their historic home. Will definitely stay here again, when we next visit Cape May.
