“The Best Inn in Cape May!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We visit Cape May at least 3 times a year and we always stay at The Eldredge House. The Captain's Quarters is the largest of the 3 rooms. All rooms have a private bath, television, etc. Todd the inn keeper is always helpful about attractions and restaurants. He really has his pulse on the area and is very knowledgeable of Cape May. We highly recommend the Eldredge House if you are looking for a quaint, clean and pleasant stay!

We're pretty fussy, and we think this place is perfect!
The house itself is beautiful, but very comfortable, with just enough modernization for convenience. There are only three guest rooms, so it's very quiet. The area is great - close to the beach, shopping, restaurants, yet off the "main drag" in a residential area that's nice for strolling and looking at lovely houses. Off street parking is an added benefit.
Make-your-own coffee and tea are available all the time, and guests get vouchers for a number of area (and good!) restaurants instead of an onsite breakfast. We appreciate that feature because it allows more flexibility of scheduling and because it's nice to get out in the morning and to choose our own menu. The rooms are fairly spacious and very clean. Todd is very friendly and informative. He manages to be inconspicuous, yet available all the time. Just right for a host!

Lovely B&B. Todd is a kind and helpful host. He knows so much about the area and he is so easy to talk to. We were able to use towels and could have borrowed some beach chairs but we opted to bike to the beach. The Eldridge house has a great location and we didn't need to use our car much. We preferred to bike or walk. The room (Mary) was nice and there is excellent shower pressure. We really liked the breakfast vouchers. It was nice to explore different breakfast places in the area. We would definitely stay there again.

Great B&B! Very friendly owner, great price and beautiful rooms.
Todd offered us to use his beach chairs and beach towels.
Cape May is a beautiful little town near the ocean.
You can watch dolphins play just by walking along the shore.

The Eldredge house is a small B&B in West Cape May. Todd, the owner/manager, was extremely helpful and attentive to things that we asked for.

The house is quite old, but really nicely decorated. It was especially nice being here just after Christmas when the house was decorated with Christmas things and it had a really pleasant atmosphere. There are 3 rooms in total. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters, which was very spacious and nice.

Others mentioned that rather than having breakfast in the hotel, you are given vouchers for nearby restaurants. These vouchers can be used at lunch or dinner instead of breakfast if you prefer at some of the restaurants. We liked having the flexibility of the vouchers and not having to eat breakfast with strangers.

The building was very quiet when we were here, which was very relaxing.

Room Tip: The Captain's Quarters is the largest room

I've stayed at the Eldrege House a number of times. The location is great. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The owner Todd is second to none as a host. Always helpful and available. He's also great at making dinner recommendations.

Beach chairs and towels are available at the house. Just in case you forget!

Having a great place to stay can make or break your visit. The Eldrege house exceeds the expectations everytime.

Thanks Todd!

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

We were in Cape May to attend a wedding and I was looking for something comfortable and affordable with a possible one night stay. I am very pleased that we found The Eldredge House which met these requirements and more. Todd was incredibly helpful, even offering to give us a ride home from the celebration if needed! The weather was much better than expected and Todd set us up with beach chairs and towels--which really equipped us to have a great afternoon at Cape May State Park, a short drive from the Eldredge House. Breakfast across the street was convenient and worked out fine. We are from the DC area and took the ferry from Lewes which created a very relaxing trip.
