“Excellent B & B...looking forward on coming back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Mission Inn this past weekend. My husband is NOT a "B & B" type but LOVED the Mission Inn! It was so clean and the room was perfect! We will be making another trip hopefully when the weather warms up!

Room Tip: We stayed in the San Luis Rey which was wonderful as I am sure all the rooms are!!

My husband and I have never stayed at a B&B before, we have always stayed at hotels. But for our anniversary we wanted to try the Mission Inn. We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable, welcoming, beautiful place to stay. Sue and Ray make you feel so at home and go above and beyond accommodating your needs. The food is fabulous! The rooms are down to the very detail amazing! I would recommend to go to the Mission Inn any time of the year! Our Anniversary is in October and we loved it! Can't wait to go back! Especially for the oatmeal cookies!! Thank you again Sue and Ray for a wonderful weekend!

Anyone looking for a place to stay in the lovely Victorian seashore city of Cape May, New Jersey must absolutely try “The Mission Inn” on New Jersey Avenue. Owned by Susan and Ray, it offers all of the warmth and comfort of home with the pampering of the vacation that it is. Susan’s attention to detail, both in her rooms which are a tribute to the California Missions, and her wonderful breakfast and afternoon hors d’oeuvres, is unmatched. For time at the beach they provide all you need and the rest of the year a great place to enjoy everything else Cape May has to offer. Each time we return we feel welcomed home by good friends. We can’t wait for the next trip!

Very welcoming, Warm reception, and friendly B&B for our weekend anniversary getaway! Great innkeepers who make you feel right at home! Great breakfasts! Quiet rooms offer plenty of privacy! For colder days in the fall and winter months, the inn offers a large living room/lounge area to spread out and meet other guests and the innkeepers! Also plenty of added amenities in the lounge area to help make our stay comfortable! Parking and convenient to the beach! We will go back!

We had a wonderful and relaxing experience at The Mission Inn. We booked a stay on recommendation and were thrilled. Owners Susan and Ray were welcoming, warm and so accommodating to all our needs, even booking dinner reservations for us on our behalf. The breakfast and appetizers they prepared each day were delicious.

I would high recommend a stay at The Mission Inn in Cape May!

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary in Cape May at a bed and breakfast Since we have very little experience wit B & B's we used Trip Advisor as our information resource. The one name that stood out from the crowd was The Mission Inn. Even though it wasn't the Victorian style like most amend even though it wasn't in the heart of downtown we went with the recommendations. The inn is fabulous It could not have been nicer. From the physical property, which is California mission style, to the food, to the hosts and their staff, everything was wonderful. Every room is different, but in its own way a work of art, as was the common areas, which were beautiful as well as comfortable. The snacks and drinks each day were truly of gourmet quality. And the breakfasts were delicious ams well as spectacular. Our hosts, Susan and Ray, could not have been more helpful. By the time we left, we felt like we had been long-time friends.

In summary, I could not imagine a better Bed and Breakfast experience. If we return to Cape May again, I won't need Trip Advisor, I know where we will be staying.

We spent one night at the Mission Inn for our 26th wedding anniversary. We were in the San Diego de Alcala room, which is right off the main central room of the inn. The owners Sue and Ray go out of their way to make you feel welcome and happy in the inn. They are perfectionists as to how they run their inn, and attend to their guests.

We loved our room, with the detailed painted walls and headboard. Nice corner air jet tub, large dual head shower, warming fireplace and heated floors.

They put out a nice selection of appetizers at around 4 PM, and there was white wine and port available for the guests.

Bonus was the inn is only a short walk to our dinner at the Peter Shields Inn.

Each guest room is themed after one of the missions, with artistic murals and accents designed to resemble the original mission. The common areas were themed to reflect the warmth of the missions. Each year additional improvements are planned and implemented. Return guests are always finding the "little changes" that reflect the attention to detail so noticeable at the Inn.
