This is a place sure to get a higher rating from someone who enjoys serious Victorian decor. And if you are coming to cape may, chances are you'll love the Victorian style. Heavy and dark antiques in the rooms typical of period. Lots of lights with beaded lampshades etc. just not my style--and seemed like it could use refreshing in... More

The place was noisy- on a busy street with live music played every night we were there! They offered free breakfast, but while the menu was interesting, the food was horrible. My wife and I had different entrees each of the three mornings we were there, and 5 out of the 6 were close to inedible - cold eggs, under... More

Love the Victorian look in Cape May and thought we'd stay in a B&B. We were not disappointed with our stay at Elaine's. The house maintains its old Victorian look but our room was completely modern. I was worried that it might have a musty odor due to its age but luckily it was "modern" in every way. Loved the... More

We are hooked with the dinner theater. We love how they are able to improvise and include the audience into the show. If there is a birthday let them know, special attention to the birthday person. We live in Pennsylvania and we go to each new show, up to 3 times a year. Definitely worth checking it out.

Elaine's is not the typical B&B since it is not a private home. There is a bar and outside bar/restaurant. There is also nightly entertainment and a dinner theater . You have breakfast on the porch and order from a menu that has a nice variety of very good items! The seafood frittata and eggs Benedict are yummy!. It was... More

Elaine's makes you feel like you are in another Era which is very fun and different. All of the rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly. The food and drinks were amazing. They have an outside bar with regular drinks and frozen drinks which makes for a fun night! I would not only recommend this place but... More

Returned home from a two night stay at Elaine’s Bed and Breakfast Inn in the heart of Cape May, and absolutely loved it! We stayed on the second floor, Room 3, which was conveniently located near the sun room that also led to the second floor balcony where we enjoyed time in the mornings and evenings. Our room was decently... More

My husband and I spent the weekend in Cape May and stayed at Elaine's. It was truly amazing! Elaine's is within walking distance to everything. It's right in the heart of town. The band played music while we sipped drinks on the porch. The dinner show was fantastic! The food was incredibly delicious and served by attentive, friendly waiters and... More

This was the best place I have stayed in Cape May and I have been coming here for years. The location is perfect, it is a couple blocks from the beach, downtown shopping, many bars and restaurants. The menus have a great variety of food, everything tasted so good. The service is great everyone was accommodating and nice. There is... More

Elaine's was a great spot for us to stay overnight. It is located conveniently between the beach and nearby open air malls. The rooms were clean, reasonably updated with coffee and tv etc. Breakfast was tasty and our waitress Isabel was lovely and professional.
