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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

We were only there one night. We were going for the dinner show and thought it would be fun to stay over this time. We were given room 12 as there were 3 of us and there are two beds and each in their own "space" but there were no doors on the individual rooms. The space is very limited...

Perfect location, just two blocks from Washington street mall, restaurants, market, etc. Three blocks to beach, easy walk.

Don't expect any sympathy if you try to cancel your stay because of a death/funeral. The funeral fell right in the middle of my scheduled stay and the staff refused to just let me cancel my 48 hour stay with 3 or 4 day notice. I was told to use the down payment for a further date, but I was...

Had a lovely July 4th weekend at Elaine's. Comfy beds, great AC, fun atmosphere and delicious breakfast. Who could ask for anything more? 3 min walk to Congress Hall and shopping, assigned parking (in shade). Go to Elaine's! So relaxing.
