A truly amazing experience. Susan and Ray are the best hosts, always welcoming you home. Staff is marvelous as well. Cleanliness, comfort and quality simply can't be beat. Breakfast is wonderful and their snacks are always a delight. Don't forget the puzzles.

We were just passing thru Cape May but the Mission Inn made us want to stay longer! The Innkeeper Susan is a delightful person who makes you feel like you are "at home" immediately. The Inn itself is unique in character and beautifully maintained. Interesting that movie stars like Erroll Flynn and others stayed there when doing local theatre in...

This is the best inn in Cape May. I've stayed at three or four others that can't hold a candle to the Mission Inn. This was my first visit for my girl friend and me as a couple. I've stayed at the Missiion Inn many with my late wife. Susan and Ray, the innkeepers, and the entire staff make you...

The Mission Inn made two vegans feel like they were completely at home. Yes, vegans! We know we’re a bit tough to have over as guests. Yet, even more so than some of our friends and family, Leslie, the chef at the Mission Inn during our stay, took care of us each morning this past Labor Day weekend with a...

I planned a sunset proposal in Cape May followed by a weekend at a Bed and Breakfast, and things couldn't have been more perfect. The Mission Inn met and exceeded my expectations from the second we walked through the door. Ray and Susan go above and beyond in every way possible, reaching a level of hospitality that other business owners...

Have never stayed at a B&B as fantastic as Mission Inn. Susan and Ray were the " hostess with the mostest ". The rooms were beautifully painted with murals. The gourmet breakfasts were created by a fabulous cook-Leslie. The snacks made for us in the afternoon were also a wonderful experience. Mission Inn is located on a quiet street with...

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. That says it all. The Mission Inn is by far one of the best B&B's my husband & I stayed. Susan & Ray couldn't of made you feel more special. Our room, breakfast & afternoon snacks were excellent. One block from the beach & a 20 minute walk to Washington Street Mall. If you are taking a...

My husband and I visit Cape May every August. This year, after exhaustive research, we stayed at the Mission Inn. It was our first time at a B&B. The Mission Inn is without a doubt one of the loveliest, most comfortable places we've ever stayed. Susan is so welcoming and from the moment she greets you, she makes you feel...

My husband and I were given a gift certificate to stay here. Not having any idea what the Mission Inn was like, we were extremely delighted with the accommodations. The entire place was clean and cozy including our room. The Roberts, our hosts, were welcoming and they made you feel at home instantly. They were very interactive, very accommodating, we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Recently awarded the 2017 Travelers Choice Award for B&B's & Inns by Trip Advisor as the #1 bed and breakfast in Cape May, NJ (5 years in a row), #3 in the USA, and #11 in the world, The Mission Inn Bed and Breakfast is not your typical Cape May B&B. We invite you to experience the charm of a California Spanish Mission Style Bed and Breakfast just one block from the beach. You will find The Mission Inn guest rooms to be bright, airy, tastefully decorated, creative and restful places for the weary traveler as was the purpose of the original California missions. 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. Book one of our 8 Rooms before they fill up! We are an Inn for all seasons and open all year round. ... more   less
