“Fantastic Weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2007

Right from the start, we were treated like family coming to stay for the weekend. The Inn is very inviting and our room especially clean and welcoming. The homeade breakfast each morning was superb. The Inn is walking distance to the beach and to local shopping so we didn't have to get back in our car all weekend. Thank you. We'll be back!!!

This was only my second experience staying at a bed and breakfast, and it was terrific! The property is airy and uncluttered. The rooms and grounds are clean, bright and comfortable. Besides the front porch, there is a sun room on the third floor where you can sit in inclement weather. The sun room has games, a small refrigerator and ice machine. Bonnie and Lance Pontin, the innkeepers, were available but unintrusive. The breakfasts were delicious and very attractively presented. It was a great visit, and my husband and I hope to make it a habit!

  • Liked — Everything: location, clean and bright, nice people, good food, good facilities (TV, shower)
  • Disliked — No complaints! The innkeepers ask you if you would like anything different!

We have just returned from a three day stay at John Wesley Inn celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary. Our vising was terrific.

The Inn is located 1/2 block from the beach and 2 blocks form shopping and dining. There is no need to drive once you have arrived. The Inn provides offstreet parking for your vehicle, which is an excellent benefit, as Cape May parking consists of street meter parking in most locations.

Breakfasts served were delicious. Bonnie , Lance, and all that help them, are wonderful people, and treat you as part of the family. Their home is beautiful, and they work hard to maintain the original features.

John Wesley Inn is an excellant choice.

We absolutely loved our stay at the John Wesley Inn. The Inn itself was just beautiful. The whole town is filled with historical victorian homes. After walking around and enjoying the magnificient surroundings, we found the Wesley Inn to be one of the most attractive and charming homes there. Having discovered the John Wesley Inn on the internet, we found our room to be just as it was pictured, gorgeous! Our hosts were exceptional , from the first phone call to the sad goodbye at the end. The meals they served were excellent. I asked Bonnie if she had been a chef and her reply was "just a mom!" That was the feeling you got......you had come home for a visit. Although Cape May with its picturesque and delightful settings is reason enough to come back for a visit, it wouldn't be complete if the John Wesley Inn wasn't included to make the stay truly a memorable and wonderful experience.

We just returned from a 2 night stay at the John Wesley Inn. It is in a wonderful location. 1/2 block to the beach, 2 blocks to the Mall, across the street are bike rentals and around the corner is the movie theater. My husband and I have frequented many B&B's and found this home to be one of the most beautiful and its' hosts, Bonnie and Lance so warm, friendly and helpful. The house is spotlessly clean, and the rooms are very comfortable. Breakfast and afternoon tea were also quite delicious. In addition, we met other guests who shared the same sentiments regarding the hospitality and amenities offered at the John Wesley Inn. We will definitely return.

This is a very nice place to stay. Just a short walk to the beach and the main part of town. The room we had was spacious and clean. The main living room was delightfully furnished in the Victorian style. It has its own parking lot as well. This is a super plus in Cape May that can not be understated. Delicious home made cookies served with tea in the afternoon was nice and held us off just fine until dinner. The innkeepers were friendly and helpfull. It is worth a try when you stay in Cape May.

We had a wonderful time. The breakfasts were delicious. The Innkeepers Bonnie & Lance are very friendly and informative. Beautiful antique furniture throughout the house. A nice collection of Wedgewood china and Stangl pottery. The employees were very courteous. Afternoon iced tea and home baked cookies were a delight. We highly recommend this as a great place to stay.
