Elaine's Victorian Inn was in a great location with kind and helpful staff. The breakfasts were also excellent. However, our room was small with barely room to walk around the bed and was a mixed bag as far as decorating. We had an Asian bed and night stands; orange sheets; a worn bedspread; aqua lamps and nothing matched. I thought Victorian Inns had Victorian décor! The carpets needed cleaning. The bathroom however, was large and very clean. There was no room to sit in our room and the only alternative was the porches where we felt compelled to buy drinks instead of just utilize them as part of our package.

I've actually stayed in 3 different rooms in Elaine's...all in one stay lol. The first was on an upper floor...it was spacious and well-decorated, but the steps going up were a killer! The two first floor rooms I stayed in were tiny but clean and the decor was again lovely.(tho a tad overpriced for the size but considering the season it was understandable) I went to the dinner show and had a FABULOUS time. Breakfast was tres lovely on the veranda and I loved that they contribute to the upkeep of feral cats in the neighborhood at an adjoining property. It was a very good stay, albeit ~ tis more impersonal than some. More hotel-ish I'd say. (Though I rush to acknowledge my every need was taken care of!)

I have never been to a bed and breakfast and my fiance didn't care for them. Well we stayed at Elaine's April 2013. From the moment Carol greeted us until she said good-bye, we had the perfect recharge of life weekend. The room and food were wonderful and we laughed the whole time during the dinner theater. Driving home my fiance turned to me and said, " we found OUR PLACE". Thank you Elaine's you will be see us again....Gerri and Kevin

Just got back from a weekend at Elaline's and i must say it was perfect! They are so accomodating and very informative! The staff just can't seem to do enough for you, they make you feel like family...The room was very nice...my only complaint would be i wish they had bigger vanities in the bathroom... but don't let that deter you...the breakfast is to die for! I've traveled all over the world and my family agreed....Elaines got the best breakfast! The great thing is that it is close to everything! Great spot and great eats!!!!!

We had a great stay in Cape May and had a fabulous time at Elaine's. Our room was ready and very clean. Plenty of clean towels and the beds were very comfortable. We stayed in Room 7. Very close to Mall and beach. Chairs and towels are also provided for the beach. We enjoyed dinner at the Haunted Mansion and having a drink at the bar. Breakfast was surely the best part of the day, you surely will not be disappointed as there is something for everyone on the menu. Planning a return visit this winter to Cape May and I know who I am calling first:)

I stayed in 3 different rooms during my stay and all were lovely. The first floor rooms were small but quaint...furniture is unique; bathrooms very nice. The third floor room I had originally booked was gorgeous & spacious, but the many steps are steep and my arthritis just couldn't do it, so the staff graciously exchanged rooms for me and even gave me a room credit on the lesser $ rooms. Breakfast(full) on the outdoor porch was VERY satisfying, delicious and pleasantly serene. The location is phenomenal and the private assigned parking is a Godsend! The entire manor is surprizingly quiet at any hour. The young ladies in employ, were all friendly ...but the highlight of personalities here was the owner, whose elderly father keeps watch of the pkg lot...just seeing her have lunch with him and sit and spend time with him daily, warmed my heart sooo much! I like Good people!!! ...and I found them here! I attended the dinner theatre my first nite for "Gone with the Werewolves" and it was Hysterically funny(I'm still chuckling)...the cast was adorable and talented. Dinner was tres yummy and a really fab deal. I will definitely return again one day.

We stayed at this Inn October of 2010. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. Felt it was a bit overpriced for the time of year though. The breakfasts were outstanding with a hot choice each morning and there were outdoor tables on the porch if you preferred eating outside (which we did). The Inn was within walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The Inn has a fabulous bar and restaurant with a dinner theatre. The shows are reasonably priced and fabulous!! Loved it there!
