We have stayed at a number of hotels and B & Bs in Cape may over the past 20 years. This was the best. The property is in pristine condition, and packed with dazzling antiques. Just to see it is a reason to come to Cape May and stay here. In addition, the service was exceptionally friendly and accommodating, and it is within an easy walk of nearly every place one would want to be in Cape May. New owners plus mostly longtime staff, all very dedicated to the hotel and the community.

Upon arriving,, met new owner, Pete & felt very welcome. it's been our 4th vacation there & can't imagine another greater stay. First thing I noticed were the tea cups (instead of mugs) set out with lovely tea pots if you wanted to have a pot of tea. Everything is available--beach chairs, bikes, towels, a shower, etc. & a nice outdoor Table & chairs & umbrellas where you can also eat...it was great!

I have stayed at the Mainstay Inn three times and have been very satisfied with my rooms and the breakfast.The rooms are always kept very clean and are decorated in beautiful Victorian style. I have met the owners and they are very nice and definitely want their guest to be comfortable and satisfied with their visit at the Inn. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast and tea time are great. I love staying at the Mainstay Inn and will be returning for another stay.

Once again, our stay was great. This was our fifth time at the Mainstay Inn and we left determined to come back again. The new innkeeepers are wonderful and the staff is the same friendly, conscientious and attentive team that makes this place so special. We parked our car the day we arrived and never touched it again for four days because the inn is so close to everything and Cape May is such a joy to walk around. Thanks again!

It is always a pleasure to stay at the Mainstay. Just sitting on the porch is so relaxing. The breakfast is delicious and the afternoon Tea is very satisfying. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable with all modern conveniences. Plus beach chairs and towels included for the beach. What else could you ask for?

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Mainstay Inn. The owners, Esther and Peter, were wonderful and we felt so comfortable and at home right away. Everyone who we dealt with was professional yet incredibly warm; the food was delicious; and the inn is incredibly clean and well-maintained. The inn's setting is so perfect - porches everywhere with beautiful scenes to watch, comfortable swings, lots of space to relax. All in all a perfect trip.
