We celebrated our 40th anniversary at the inn and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere, the decor, the food and the service were all wonderful. Susan and Ray were great hosts. The staff were wonderful. We've stayed at several bed and breakfasts, but this has been the best to date.

This was our first time staying at a B&B and we enjoyed it. The room was great. The staff/owners were great as well. They made it a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. No pressure to socialize with guests, just to be there, come and go as we please, and do what we feel like. Food was great and so were the afternoon snacks.

Susan and Ray are the finest innkeepers. The Mission Inn is THE place to stay on Cape May. Every facet of this place is fully devoted to customer service and comfort. The rooms are amazing, the food is gourmet and your every need will be attended to. Far better than several 5-star hotels we've stayed at.
5 on March 17, 2014
Stay in luxury with dreams of California Missions playing in your head. All 8 rooms are styled after a different mission and all are a perfect treat for the senses. The owners, Susan & Ray are the perfect hosts and there can not be a better experience in Cape May. We were so impressed with everything that we made another reservation for July before leaving.

A beautifull Inn on a quiet street with great amenities and service

We recently returned from a late-February stay at the Mission Inn. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, but knew that it was something we had wanted to try. Though a bit skeptical about staying at a non-Victorian style b&b, the reviews on this website, and many others, made us feel very comfortable in our decision to stay at the Mission Inn. First, the rooms were impeccable - bright, roomy, and very clean! The common areas were warm and inviting. The common “kitchen” was stocked with anything you might need, including many different beverages and delicious cookies baked daily. We were there for two delicious breakfasts. The food was presented as if it were being served in a 5-star restaurant. Our breakfasts included an egg pizza and stuffed French toast. Also, in the afternoon, appetizers were served in the solarium. The appetizers are homemade, but were also quite tasty! Susan went out of her way to make sure there were a variety of different items. We had arrived with no plans for dinner and Susan was able to make wonderful recommendations for places in Cape May and we had delicious dinners on both evenings. Perhaps what was most impressive about our stay were the other guests. We were lucky enough to dine with 3 different couples at breakfast. Each of the couples was there for their 4th, 5th or 7th time! That spoke volumes to us about the Inn! Upon our arrival Susan found out that we were expecting our 2nd baby. Mission Inn hosts many “babymoons” for parents with little ones on the way. Susan and Ray left a bag full of goodies – including pickles – for our now-expanding family on the day of our departure. What a special addition to an already relaxing weekend. Susan and Ray were wonderful hosts making us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We were pampered and spoiled the entire weekend. We cannot wait until we are able to return.

We chose "The Mission Inn" because it sounded a little different than the other B&B's and I was so happy we did. Ray and Susan were terrific. Our only regret was that we didn't stay another day. We would have liked to finish that puzzle we were working on.
5 on December 26, 2013
I suprised my wife a Babymoon getaway in Dec.as a nice suprise and our last trip before our baby in March. Sue & Ray our some of the greatest people I have met on vacation. They LOVE what they do and it shows in the detail of the Mission Inn and there passion for people and creating a relaxing and cozy environment. I have already booked 3 days for August 2014 and can't wait. If your looking for a cozy, clean, unique and cheerful B&B in Cape May this place is a must stay..you won't regret it!
5 on December 21, 2013
My husband and I have been to the Mission Inn many times. It just keeps getting better and better. Susan and Ray are super people - warm, friendly, and can't do enough for their guests' comfort. The Inn is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The food is great and beautifully prepared. Each time we leave we can't wait for our next visit. Ed & Lorraine

We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary by visiting Cape May, NJ. Our weekend was made even more special by staying at the Mission Inn and meeting the wonderful owners as well as enjoying the company of the other guests. What a special place to stay and it was decorated so beautifully for Christmas.

Outstanding food and wonderful service, terrific rooms and fabulous host and hostess. Would recommend this place to everyone

Beautiful rooms, big bathtubs, delicious food, and exceptionally friendly hosts! The Mission Inn is everything you'd want in a B&B and more!

The Mission Inn exceeded our expectations. Beautiful home, outstanding home cooked goodies. Close to the beach with all the amenities of home.
5 on November 11, 2013
My wife and I just returned from our second visit to the Mission Inn. There simply is not a better place to stay than this. From the moment Susan greeted us at the door with "welcome home", to breakfast the following morning, it was just perfection. Many reviews have stressed the amenities, which are all top notch. The rooms are beautiful and clean, the snacks in the sun room are great, and Leslie's breakfasts are delicious. Each room is different, and as many have stated, you can't go wrong with whatever room you choose. The late afternoon snacks are wonderful, and I especially enjoy a glass of port on our return later in the evening. What stands out to us is summed up in Susan's "welcome home" on our arrival. It was not phony, or scripted; it was heartfelt. Whether this is your first visit, or a return visit, she makes you feel truly welcome and valued in her home. She really wants you to feel like it is your home also during your stay. Susan is most informative about Cape May, and interested in what you have to say. You feel like you have known her all your life. We will definetly return again.
5 on October 30, 2013
We are not B & B people, but I wanted to do something special for our anniversary, so I booked a weekend at The Mission Inn. We were both so pleased with our experience that we will stay again!
5 on October 28, 2013
The Mission Inn is by far, the best Inn we've stayed in. The home is sparkling clean. The staff is friendly and Susan, the innkeeper is knowledgeable about the area. It is a unique inn, close to the beach and shopping! Just remember to book early; it fills up fast!
5 on October 26, 2013
We knew this was going to be different when Susan met us at the driveway and took our big suitcase to carry up the steps. She would not accept "no" when I told her I could do it. She carried it. The premises were immaculate and the bedroom the best we have had anyplace. We wanted to live in the group shower. Such pampering! The meals were top quality. Our only complaint was with the afternoon "tea". The food was so good that it almost ruined our dinners. Anything we wanted was there, even a cell phone charger. This was the finest b and b ever and we can't wait to return. Sue and Al Erlick
5 on October 16, 2013
I saw all the positive reviews and I thought it was to good to be true. How can a place have so many good reviews? Well, we found out. It is amazing. I don't want to ruin the fun by telling you all about it. I'll just say you won't be disappointed. ;)

Hospitality at it's best.

One of the best kept secrets in Cape May!
4.8 on October 07, 2013
Spent 6 days in cape may for our sons wedding and needed a few more days to recover. Where better than the mission inn Susan, Ray and staff NEVER disappoint. From the attention to detail to making every guest be it a first time visitor or returning guest feel equally welcome and at your home away from home. Already planning a Valintines day escape.
5 on October 07, 2013
We will always remember our at The Mission Inn. Susan and Robert were so warm and welcoming. You felt like family. My husband and i will make plans to stay here again.

On our recent visit to Cape May, we originally intended to stay somewhere on Beach Avenue so that we could see the ocean. Instead, we chose to stay at The Mission Inn on New Jersey Avenue (one block from the beach), and we were not disappointed in the least. The lovely hosts of this most beautiful Inn, Susan and Raymond, could not have been more gracious and accommodating. Every detail was perfect and our every need was anticipated before we could even think to ask. The murals painted on the walls of the Inn are so beautiful and creative. A most delicious and unique gourmet breakfast was served on the veranda (or optionally in the dining room or solarium) each morning and at 4 pm a very substantial and inviting spread of hors d'oeuvres was set out for all to enjoy. In addition, drinks, popcorn, and homemade baked goods were available at all times. The patio in the back of the inn was peaceful and warm, as we basked in the afternoon sunshine reading our books and watching the Monarch butterflies in the gardens. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the Inn so that we could see some of the Cape May sites. We had a memorable September weekend in Cape May and are looking forward to returning to The Mission Inn in the near future.
5 on September 30, 2013
This is a very lovely and cozy bed and breakfast. The owners, Susan & Raymond, are exceptional hosts. They make sure you enjoy their stay. If you let them know ahead of time your dietary restrictions they will make sure they have what you need. Mission Inn is very allergy friendly. I have a special diet and they met my needs with no problem.
5 on September 26, 2013
Warm, welcoming, tasteful, a luxury treat to both body, soul and taste buds. Cape May made easy! Easy access to the beach, short walk or cycle tour to down town. Great restaurants in the very close neighborhood. We can't think of a better place to stay. Of course we will be back! It was just perfect.
5 on September 26, 2013
great place to stay
5 on September 25, 2013
This visit was our 4th to the Mission Inn and it never disappoints! The level of cleanliness, attention to detail, staff quality and warmth of the Inn owners is outstanding. The quality of food is also exceptional...we will be going back again and again!! Thanks you so much Susan and Ray!
5 on September 24, 2013
From the moment we arrived we were warmly greeted by Susan and Robert and the staff and made to feel like family. Our room was amazing with painted walls and ceiling to make us feel like we were in California. No detail was spared. All the amenities (beach chairs/umbrellas, bikes, etc) were kept in pristine condition and we were encouraged to enjoy them all. Breakfast was very delicious and our dietary requests were met with welcome. We can not wait to go back again!
4.8 on September 23, 2013
The Mission Inn is a special place. Great facilities and wonderful service. Convenient to the beach and some wonderful restaurants. The breakfasts were outstanding and hors d'oeurves a special touch. The hosts, Susan and Ray, make you feel at home and make great recommendations.
5 on September 21, 2013
We are recently back from our third stay. As a true testament to the Mission Inn, we were already planning our next visit on day 1 of our vacation. We were greeted by our wonderful hosts, Susan and Ray, and settled into our room just as cocktail hour began. Not the typical cookies and tea, we were served white wine and an assortment of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres. Our hosts made our dinner reservations and then we settled into our comfortable room, complete with fireplace and spa tub. We appreciated that the Mission Inn supplied beach towels, sand chairs, and beach umbrellas...less for us to cart from home. Bicycles are also available for your convenience. We are always impressed with the beauty of the inn. The details of the painting and hand carved headboards are amazing. The gourmet breakfasts are always delicious and the warmth and comfort of the Mission Inn make it our absolute favorite place in Cape May. We can't wait to go back!
5 on September 15, 2013
This was the best B&B we have ever stayed in. The owners take great pride in their Inn and it shows in every respect. So many included amenities to mention but the bikes were one of our favorites. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We were only able to book a room for a single night so we had to stay at another B&B for our second night which was nice but it did not compare to our stay at the Mission Inn. We cannot wait to go back.
5 on September 13, 2013
Susan and Ray where wonderful hosts food, rooms where all delightful!! Susan's attention to detail was amazing! Would highly recommend The Mission Inn.
4.8 on September 11, 2013
This was our first visit to The Mission Inn and it will long be remembered as an exceptional way to visit the NJ seashore. The reviews of all those who preceded us were right on and we can confirm The Mission Inn is amongst the best of the best.
5 on September 11, 2013
My room was called California de Asis. It was absolutely amazing. The murals on the walls are gorgeous... a must see. You are made to feel at home! The cook is great. Breakfast was delicious. I loved the people. I wish I had stayed longer. Absolutely wonderful... I recommend the experience to all.
5 on September 08, 2013
We often stay in B & B's when we travel. The Mission Inn is the finest we have ever stayed in. There are no surprises except it surpasses your expectations. So many B & B's show one thing on its internet site, and are unfortunately another when you arrive. At the Mission Inn, what you see on its site is what you get; no, you get more. There is no way to adequately describe how nice it is. The owners really want to "take care of" you, but don't get in your way. They always have a good suggestion for a meal or a place to visit. All of the "equipment" they loan you for your stay (beach bikes & chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc.) are always in good working order. The breakfasts & mid-afternoon snacks are delicious, satisfying, & gourmet. I could go on, & on, & on. ~~Vivian & Steve
5 on August 22, 2013
The best we've experienced! We went for our 30th anniversary. Away from town(10 min) walk.The decor is unique.The accoutrements are outstanding.Wonderful breakasts and the hor d'oeuvreves are delicious.Susan and Raymond are wonderful hosts.1 block from the beach and tags are provided(w/ deposit)along with beach chairs and umbrella+ bikes. Couldn't have had a better stay. Highly recommended..

Susan and Ray have thought of everything to make a stay here very pleasurable.
5 on August 21, 2013
I cant say enough about our stay at the Mission Inn. Susan makes you feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. The breakfasts and mid-day snacks were amazing. There are so many "little things" that are taken into consideration that just makes everything about the Mission Inn perfect. If you are going to Cape May, there is no better place to stay.
5 on August 18, 2013
Our four night stay at the lovely Mission Inn was our second visit. Innkeepers Susan and Ray are the warmest, most gracious hosts and make their guests feel like dear relatives. From the incredibly comfortable beds (and I am 6'8") to the sumptuous breakfasts prepared by Chef Leslie, to the late afternoon appetizers prepared by Janet, it is like being in a mission-themed resort condensed to the dimensions of a B & B. My wife, daughter and I felt pampered and cared for and we will definitely return to this special place.
4.6 on August 17, 2013
The Inn is extremely clean and modern, the large community room is comfortable and contains everything you need for either relaxing, watching, reading and playing. Susan and her staff make you feel like family and will do whatever it takes to make you feel that way. Breakfast was always a surprise for your taste buds, kudos to the cook and the afternoon treats were just delicious. The location is perfect close to the beach and away from the noise of town. We have stayed at a few other B and B's in Cape May and so far the Mission Inn is tops.
5 on August 13, 2013
This is the second time we stood at the Mission Inn and it did not disappoint us. As always are stay was perfect. Couldnt ask for a better Bed and Breakfast for us to stay at. We can't wait till we go back next year. Sue and Ray are the best and glad we know them . Love Nancy, Rich, Olga and Hiag

WE ALWAYS FEEL LIKE WE ARE COMING HOME TO FAMILY.SUSAN IS WONDERFUL,AND SO IS HER HUSBAND RAY.THE ROOMS ARE BEAUTIFUL,COMFORTABLE,AND VERY CLEAN,AND LESLIE MAKES A AWESOME BREAKFAST.COULDNT ASK FOR A BETTER PLACE TO STAY.
5 on August 10, 2013
Susan and Ray have really done everything right at the Mission Inn! From the atmosphere to the gourmet breakfasts, to the rooms and amenities...your stay at the Mission Inn is definitely one you will remember! Susan, Ray and their staff are so welcoming and have a wealth of knowledge to share regarding restaurants, sight seeing, shopping, wineries, etc... The hospitality is second to none!!! We recently spent a week at the Mission Inn and it was truly one of the best vacation experiences we have had! Only one block from the beach, chairs, towels, bikes available for use, plus more. We highly recommend the Mission Inn and will definitely be back again! :)
5 on August 05, 2013
The Mission Inn is as comfortable as your own home. That is if your home has a gourmet chef and a staff that is courteous and thorough. The hosts, Susan and Ray are terrific. They genuinely care about your experience. Many of the guests come back year after year and are received as if they were part of the family. We will be back! Bob and Mary Jo
5 on August 03, 2013
If you are looking for a truly unique getaway, PLEASE check out The Mission Inn. The hospitality, food, atmosphere, cleanliness and grounds are really something to experience. It is like staying with family. The inn is close to the beach and shops which is a plus. We had an amazing experience thanks to the owner Susan and her amazing family at the inn. Her chef Leslie makes breakfast an "experience". We can't wait to go back and stay in a different themed room. Each room has its own charm and character. The art work throughout the inn is unreal. There are carved replicas of a different mission above each of the eight beds. You are in for a great experience by staying at The Mission Inn.
4.8 on August 03, 2013
My husband and I have been returning to the Inn for many years. Everyone makes us feel like we are coming home. We always request the Santa Barbara Room because we really like the large shower. One year we renovated our own bathroom to be similar to the one we enjoy while on vacation. The innkeeper has provided all the little details from equipment for the beach, to access to stocking the kitchen with drinks and little snacks. We have only been gone for a few weeks and can't wait to go Home again.
5 on July 31, 2013
Sue and Ray are jenuin ,helpful, nice people who want to help you in any way they can to enjoy your stay at the mission inn. We have been there several times and we will be back again.

Suesan and Ray are terrific hosts. They make everyone feel comfortable. Of course, can't forget Janet. They set the standard for how The Mission Inn ought to run. Everyone is lovely. The food is delish - breakfast and hors d'oeuvres. You feel like it's your own home. Make a reservation now! You won't be disappointed!
5 on July 27, 2013
We've stayed at may B&B's but this by far surpasses every one of them. The food, location, hospitality, cleanliness and staff were top notch. Susan and Ray are GREAT people and made our baby moon extra special. We will be sure to visit again.
5 on July 25, 2013
Susan and Ray pay attention to every detail in making your stay as wonderful as possible. The Mission Inn consistently exceeds our expectations. They just don't miss a beat in providing highest quality of services. Simply the best value you can find in the cape.

This is our 7th return to this wonderful property. The owners Susan and Raymond are gracious and make you feel you are at home. The service is impeccable and everything you need is taken care for you. Don't miss an opportunity to experience a wonderful, relaxing time at The Mission Inn.
5 on July 12, 2013
Excellent....Susan & Ray are awesome hosts. Afternoon treats, breakfast on the veranda, bicycles & beach ware, they have their act together. This is the best B & B we've ever stayed in (anywhere). Their rooms give plenty of privacy, and the common areas are very comfortable & welcoming (your not afraid to be in them). They treat you like family. Jim & Bonnie
5 on July 09, 2013
Awesome place, host and hostess! We don't like staying anywhere else when we come down to Cape May! The hospitality is beyond compare and it is our home away from home!
5 on July 08, 2013
The Mission Inn is absolutely beautiful and very well kept. Very clean throughout. Susan and Ray are wonderful hosts - willing and able to set up anything you need to enjoy your stay in Cape May, and they are just genuinely nice people. If they can't please you, I don't think any innkeeper will. You can enjoy as much privacy as you desire, yet breakfast and appetizer times can be sociable. Breakfasts were fantastic each day- creative and tasteful. Also liked having quality beach chairs, umbrellas, and bikes available, and the beautiful beach is only a block away. Can't say enough about the Mission Inn. In our opinion, the best place to stay in Cape May. Can't wait to return.
5 on July 07, 2013
We can't say enough about the Mission Inn. The inn is outstanding, from breakfast to afternoon tea, it just does not get any better. The staff is helpful & the cook prepares delicious breakfasts & snacks everyday. We're spoiled, could not stay anywhere else. Thank You so much Susan & Ray, you're the Best! Jim & Kathy Carmello

Could not speak more highly of the Mission Inn. Incredibly clean and lovely place to relax and vacation. The inn keepers and staff go above and beyond to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Utmost attention to detail & 5 star service & hospitality await at this beautiful B&B! Hands down, one of the best vacations we've ever experienced... Like being a pampered guest in your own home! Mr. & Mrs. Rizzo

Simply outstanding on every level. Not directly on the water and no real water view, but the beach is a short block away and Susan and Ray provide everything you need (chairs, umbrellas, etc). Really could not think of anything they didnt think of first. Can't wait to return.

4.6 on June 05, 2013
From maps and suggestions on better places to park while we went about our day, to making sure we had whatever refreshment we wanted while relaxing outside on the porch, Susan and Ray were exceptional hosts. Every room has something to explore with painted ceilings depicting beautiful clouds above walls with filled with adobe buildings. Even the room doors were ornately painted to resemble old wooden doors with iron grill work.

The Mission Inn is unique in Cape May since it is not a Victorian B&B as is the traditional of Cape May, a Victorian town. Rather it is a building recreated with a historic California Missions as the central decorative theme. We love the creativity of the murals decorating every wall, each guest room is decorated to match a different Mission and it's amazing to see the decorative variety throughout the Inn. The creative and uniquely delicious, healthy breakfasts each morning are another favorite. Appetizers at 4pm. Everything you could want is available: beach tags, beach chairs, bikes, knowledgable advice about local places to visit, to shop, to dine......... We love going walking each day at the various birding sites near Cape May in the mornings and then going for walks in the town full of such interesting and historical architecture and finally walking down the boardwalk to view the sunset over Cape May Point with the Cape May Light House in site. The Mission Inn is one block form the beach, several blocks from the center of town, a perfect placement, for us, away from the crowds when we want quiet but close enough to walk downtown and enjoy the activities there whenever we wish and the beach is one block away and not as crowded as it can be closer in to town. The balance is wonderful. So, Cape May is wonderful, but The Mission Inn is truly exceptional.
5 on May 30, 2013
Ray and Susan couldn't be more wonderful. They are always available and willing to accommodate your every need, including mapping out fun ways to spend your day. The rooms were and absolutely gorgeous, and the breakfasts-just unbelievable. I cannot wait for my next stay in the hopefully near future.
5 on May 30, 2013
We've stayed in many Cape May B&B's and this one truly stands above all of the rest. The Inn is truly gorgeous with absolutely stunning murals throughout the inn- even in each of the bedrooms. My husband and I stayed there over Memorial weekend with our two teenage boys. Even though the weather wasn't great, the Inn experience made it a truly memorable stay. The inn was booked, but we were treated by Susan and Raymond (the owners) like we were the only people staying there - that's how welcome you feel and how much they cater to your needs. The food was very creative and delicious - we looked forward to breakfast each morning and the delicious treats served each afternoon. It is a very close walk to the beach and they provide chairs, umbrella's, beach towels and even bikes (for free). Honestly, we felt part of the "Mission Inn" family and will not stay anywhere else in Cape May (a quote from my kids). We've been won over.
5 on May 30, 2013
I have nothing but good things to say about our stay at the Mission Inn! Susan and Ray are wonderful. It was our first time to the cape and they helped us get reservations, gave directions and other helpful advice. Breakfast each morning was delicious and filled us up! Our favorite was the Tropical French toast and orange, peach, mango fruit juice. I have an allergy to black berries and never had to remind them. We stayed in the St Francisco de Asis room and it was great as well. The bed was really comfy, and the room was immaculate. Each morning we got up and by the time we got back from breakfast the room was mad up. We decided to go to the beach on our last day and were able to use the beach chairs and umbrellas that the Inn provided. Lastly Susan and Ray also gave us a wonderful gift bag for our daughter who is due to make her appearance this July! They truly made us feel like a part of their family. All in all it was relaxing and memorable! We hope to be able to return to cape may soon and will def be staying at the Mission Inn
5 on May 27, 2013
The Mission Inn is beautiful and beyond comfortable. It was the perfect spot for celebrating our 25th anniversary. We enjoyed the ammenities of our room, lounging in the common rooms and riding the complimentary bicycles. Breakfasts are superb--especially on the sunny veranda. Susan and Ray are the perfect hosts. We plan to make this a biannual get away place for R & R and some pampering. Linda and Linda
5 on May 21, 2013
This was a great getaway before our little guy arrives. They really catered to our needs, especially mom!
5 on May 08, 2013
I can't say enough about the Mission Inn, Susan & Raymond run a great B & B. From the wonderful rooms to the common room with places to gather to the food, it is all fantastic! This was our second and certainly not last visit to the Inn. You might not think a southwest style Inn fits with Cape May, but open yourself up to life beyond the Victorian B & Bs. The Inn provides so much from beach chairs & umbrellas to bikes or DVDs & books from days away from the beach. Susan can suggest where to eat, what to see, and where to find that special item you've been shopping for to take home with you. The only thing I can say against the Inn is we can't get there enough (& that's our fault not theirs)!
5 on May 05, 2013
Hospitality is top-notch. Food is memorable. Our favorite place to stay not only in Cape May but along the entire Jersey shore.
5 on April 15, 2013
My husband and I went to the Mission Inn to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. Once we walked thru the front door and meet Susan & Ray we knew how wonderful our night would be. The Inn is absolutly beautiful with a warm feeling. We will definitly return.
5 on April 13, 2013
My wife and I just returned from an overnight stay at the Mission Inn for our 32nd anniversary. It is just outstanding in every way. From Susan's welcome at the front door as we arrived, to the superb rooms, to the wonderful breakfast we were treated like family and made to feel so welcome in her home. The decor of the Inn is beautiful with a different mission depicted in each room. We stayed in the Santa Clara and it was wonderful with a great shower and an in-room jacuzzi. The little things really added to the experience, like the great afternoon appetizers in the sun room on the side, and the coffee, tea, and other beverages available throughout the day. I especially liked the port when we arrived back from dinner. The breakfast the next morning was great. Possibly the best omelet I have ever eaten, and I still can't believe Susan remembers all of the juices she offers. There must be around 10 to select from. Susan, and her husband Ray have created a great place to visit, explore, and relax. Every review we read prior to our visit was spot on. Our only regret is that our visit was only one day. We plan to rectify that on our next visit! Thank you Susan and Ray for a great visit.
5 on April 11, 2013
The wife and I took a little trip to Cape May for our 26th anniversary. We booked a night at the Mission Inn. Our host, Susan, greeted us as we pulled up and made us feel at home the entire time. She was very helpful in suggesting a restaurant to go to that evening. She put out a tasty late afternoon snack for us, complete with wine and other beverages. Breakfast was excellent and very filling. We look forward to returning for a longer visit.
5 on March 31, 2013
My wife and I planned an overnight stay at the Mission Inn on 3/27 to celebrate our anniversary. From the start of our stay our innkeeper, Susan made us feel very welcome. Our room was awesome. I loved the mission theme but also thoroughly enjoyed all the modern amenities. Breakfast was delicious and very filling. We look forward to returning for a longer visit next time.

Stayed at The Mission during Valentine weekend. Hosts were amazing, the Inn was amazing. As soon as we arrived Susan geeted us, gave us a tour, explained everything clearly and in great detail. The "family room" has a refrigerator available for your personal storage AND all kinds of beverages for the guests, including beer, wine, soda, fresh juice & water. Late afternoon appetizers are set out on the counter. You could make a meal of these. At nite fresh baked cookies are on the counter. Breakfasts were exceptional. Presentation and quality were top notch. The hosts are well acquainted with local attractions and will make all of your reservations, make inquiring phone calls and offer suggestions of their favorite places to visit and eat. We plan on returning this Fall. We have stayed in B&Bs all across the country and rate this Inn in the top 3 of our choices. You will not be disappointed. Ray & Kathy

We were here for out first anniversary and we loved the whole experience. Susan and Ray were charming and friendly. The love they put into everything from the decor to the appetizers to the conversation was terrific. We felt very relaxed and welcomed. I called ahead and had roses delivered and Susan was very helpful to make sure they were in the room waiting for my love. A true gem. Don't let this wonderful experience pass you by. Lori

The fiancée and I stayed at The Mission Inn this past weekend. We were visiting Cape May for the first time with hopes of learning a bit about the area before committing to a full-on move this summer. The Mission Inn is beautiful. There are large common areas downstairs which include: an entrance room sitting area with fireplace; a side room (den) replete with a fridge full of complimentary wine, soda, and fresh appetizers in the afternoon; and a large dining room for breakfast. Susan and Ray have made many modern improvements to the Inn. We stayed in the San Francisco de Asís room. You can get a feel for the room from the pics on their website but when you are standing in the room itself, it is quite an improved experience. The deep jacuzzi tub sports soothing jet streams and bath salts. The bathroom's shower is large and has six different settings that include four low, knoblike shower heads that align to specific upper or lower back muscles. The recessed, electric fireplace is a nice touch that has two settings: "heat" and "just for aesthetics." Take a few steps on the soft, fluffy rug with bare feet and you’ll think twice before collapsing onto the king sized bed. But then again, that mattress topper is tough to beat when your whole body sinks into it. Here's an interesting detail: when you turn the fan on low at night, switch on the desk lamp and the sky painting on the ceiling turns into ocean waves. It's quite tranquil. Susan is also a font of knowledge and can help you with any questions you may have about anything Cape May related. Susan and Ray take pride in their home and their hospitality translates to a happy visit for all who enter. We only stayed for one night and we had a lot to do in just under 24 hours, but the time that we spent at The Mission Inn made us feel at home. Oh, and breakfast was creative, delicious, and tailored to our individual tastes.

Another quickie, one-night in Cape May, proved to be outstanding at the Mission Inn B&B! Susan & Ray treat you, with honored guest status, throughout your stay.Relaxed atmosphere, exceptional afternoon treats, wonderful common areas, plenty of extras for your buck. It is a very impressive retreat for couples to unwind and discover a unique settings, in tastefully appointed bedrooms. Breakfast has an incredibly distinctive and delicious flair on comfort-food. Pampered hospitality exudes from every aspect of the Mission Inn.

My wife and I decided to go back to our favorite Cape May Inn for our 25 year anniversary. We had stayed at The Mission Inn once before and loved it. It was February at the shore and while it was freezing cold outside the warmth of the beautifully appointed MIssion Inn kept us cozy and happy. Susan, Ray and their staff were welcoming and we wanted for nothing. The room, which we were upgraded to was fantastic. A warm fireplace, fully appointed bathroom with two person jacuzzi tub and shower kept us very happy. The beautiful artwork that decorates all the rooms and most of the Inn(including stained glass windows) is so much fun to look at and admire and made my wife very happy. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding and served with total attention to detail by Susan and her staff. My wife and I cannot recommend The Mission Inn more highly and we will certainly be back as soon as we can. Greg Landes

I don't throw 'Outstanding' around lightly, after all, how can you improve on that? However, that's where I ended my train of thought, how can you improve on the comfort, the hospitality and the quality of food on offer at the Mission Inn? Susan and Ray offer their guests a uniquely personal service and clearly take great pride in their work. We'll be back... soon.
5 on February 12, 2013
The best in every way. Beautiful, immaculately clean, hospitality, service and thoughtfulness better than a 5 star hotel. We will absolutely return.

We've been before and plan to go again next year. It really feels like home. Excellent service.

The Mission Inn is the perfect place to stay in Cape May. Susan and Ray are gracious innkeepers and they have an outstanding staff. The inn is warm, cozy, and inviting. It's a pleasure to relax and enjoy space in the common areas. The Christmas decorations were exquisite. We were first time visitors travelling with friends who had been there several times. We were very pleased with the entire weekend and would strongly recommend The Mission Inn.
5 on December 09, 2012
We love staying at the Mission Inn. It feels like our home away from home. Susan and Ray are such gracious hosts. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the food is delicious. We stay there several times a year, and we never miss Christmas. This Inn is unique and a wonderful experience.

We were looking for something special for our 20th anniversary celebration and we found it!The Mission Inn!It is not your "Victorian" style Cape May B&B which was so refreshing.We stayed in lovely room on first floor,loaded with all the amentities..2 person Jacuzzi& shower,king size bed,fireplace...the most comfortable mattress ever(on my Christmas list) drinks&snacks in PM and a full fridge with baked goods and the breakfast was delicious!The hosts and staff were wonderful.We really felt at home.This is one not to miss!

We have been staying at the Mission Inn on Cape May since 2002. At the Inn, the proprietors, Susan & Ray Robers and their staff, never fail to provide the best and most personal service of any inn we have visited. This excellent service brings in guests of high personability and friendliness. And yet, the atmosphere provides one with privacy or friendly interaction, whichever a guest prefers.
5 on October 23, 2012
I have been vacationing in cape may for 20 years rentig a house or staying at a motel. I have taken the b&b tours but none fit my bill. Several years ago when roaming around capemay.com I saw The Mission Inn. I like the fact that it was not in the Victorian style. We planned a long weekend and had the best experience - making you feel like family, but giving you your space that you felt like friends of the family. The experience is totally luxurious but not over the top. The breakfast is my favorite meal and Leslie does not disappoint - the food so fresh and creative! Susan and Ray take care of you and want you to enjoy your stay with them AND in Cape May. If you don't stay here at least drive by when you get to Cape May. I bet you'll think about staying there on your next visit! We now stay here at least two long weekends a year and hope to do more!
5 on October 22, 2012
This was our second stay at The Mission Inn, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a great time meeting the other guests at the delicious breakfast, and had a hearty debate on politics and religion (of all topics). The Inn is within walking distance of the downtown area, and also perfect for an early morning run along the beach. Susan and Ray are wonderful hosts, and we will definitely be back.
5 on October 21, 2012
Kudos to Susan and her staff! Home away from home. Relaxing atmosphere, with beautiful decor from the moment you enter the inn. Stayed only two nights but the breakfasts and appetizers were out of this world to win any palate. From the time we arrived we were treated to complimentary bottle of wine in our beautifully decorated room the San Buenaventura. Comfortable King size bed, walk in closet, fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Susan would ask if we needed help to decide on where to have dinner and would supply excellent recommendations. Beach a block away, close to shopping in town. Short drive to the lighthouse and Sunset Beach. Truely worth coming back but next time for a longer stay.

Mu husband and I spent two wonderful nights at the Mission Inn as a getaway. It is one of the most unique B&Bs, with each room having a unique theme of an old-time mission. The rooms were a feast for the eyes and the provided breakfasts and afternoon snacks were a tasty feast. We loved Susan and her staff who could not do enough to make you welcome.
5 on October 12, 2012
This was our first time visiting Cape May and staying in a Bed and Breakfast. I am happy to say that we will definitely be going back to both Cape May and the Mission Inn. Susan and Ray are wonderful "hosts" and have made the Mission Inn a special place to call home for a few days. The breakfasts were very good and our room, the San Diego, was very clean and accommodating.
5 on September 26, 2012
Rooms uniquely decorated. Food outstanding. Hospitality superb!
4.8 on September 26, 2012
This is an enchanting place with warm and friendly owners who are creating a get away environment that rewards all senses...from the colorful gardens, the succulent breakfasts and hors d'oeuvres to the murals on the walls, no detail is overlooked.
5 on September 19, 2012
Hospitality beyond belief. Felt like I was in my own home with good friends! Susan and Ray are the most genuine hosts you could ever ask for. Not in town so not in all the craziness, but very easy walk not only to the beach, but to center of town and restaurants as well.
4.6 on September 18, 2012
Had a short vacation to Cape May with my wife and stayed at the Mission Inn, based primarily on excellent reviews from TripAdvisor. We were very pleased with the beautiful rooms, quiet home, excellent breakfast, and our fantastic hostess, Susanna. What a wonderful retreat!
4.8 on September 13, 2012
Away from the madness of the center of town and the cookie cutter Victorian B&B's is nestled a Spanish Mission style compound of comfort and relaxation. The innkeepers, Susan and Ray make you feel welcome and at home immediately. They are so warm and genuine that you arrive as guests and part as friends. The inn itself is beautiful from the guest rooms to the courtyard. Taking breakfast on the porch is such a wonderful experience. The dishes served each morning and the appetizers served each afternoon are creative, delicious and comforting. All it took was one visit to hook my wife and me. We have no desire to stay anywhere else in Cape May and have chosen The Mission Inn as our honeymoon destination in 2013.
5 on September 10, 2012
We stayed at The Mission Inn for my birthday weekend in August. First time there and we will definitely return. The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Breakfasts everyday were fantastic and unlike any other we had ever experienced at a B&B. Having beach gear, beach badges and bicycles at our convenience was an extra bonus. Also, the appetizer hour during late afternoon was a pleasant surprise. Susan and Ray are the epitome of the word "host". If you look up the word in the dictionary, their picture is probably there!
5 on September 06, 2012
I spent three days over a long holiday weekend at the Mission Inn. Susan and Ray, the owners, are incredible hosts. From the moment you check into their lovely Inn, you feel cared for, welcomed and appreciated. Susan manages all aspects of the Inn with impeccable taste and demeanor. Her staff are delightful, the food is superb and service with a smile literally in every moment you are fortunate enough to stay here. The rooms are all unique and special.........just like they are! I will be staying here every time I have the great fortune of visiting Cape May! Bravo!
4.8 on September 03, 2012
Upon arrival at the Mission Inn, we were greeted by Susan who encouraged us to make ourselves comfortable in our new "second home". As we settled in and began to explore this beautiful inn, we realized how true her statement was. Each room invites you to come and enjoy the peace and tranquility. There is no detail that is overlooked. Afternoon refreshments and the morning breakfast are as pleasing to the eye as to the palette. In other words fabulous! You will NOT be disappointed at the Mission Inn. Susan and Ray are most gracious hosts and truly enjoy helping each guest to experience all that this wonderful Inn has to offer... a little of heaven!
5 on September 01, 2012
The Mission Inn is simply unlike any other place I have ever traveled too! My husband and I had the best most relaxing time. It is a must from now on!
5 on August 28, 2012
Outstanding service, cleanliness and hospitality. Can't wait to stay here again!
5 on August 25, 2012
I'll keep it short and sweet -- when we need to recharge our batteries at the Jersey shore, this is the place we go to. Lovely, low key, wonderful food, amazing hosts. You won't be disappointed.
5 on August 18, 2012
We just had another wonderful stay at the Mission Inn. Susan, Ray, and staff were wonderful as always and the food was delicious. The rooms are thought out to every detail with everything you could want during your stay. I highly recommend them to whomever is looking for a great experience in Cape May.
5 on August 13, 2012
Susan & staff: Thank you , thank you all for everything! We had a wonderful time staying with you. Everything by far exceeded our expectations. Our room was beautiful and comfortable, the food everyday (morning & afternoon) simply superb! All of your needs are by far taken care of, beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and a stocked fridge for your pleasure! I must say everything is spotless! Susan you truly share my passion for cleanliness! :) The location and helpful dinner suggestions were wonderful! I really can't wait to come back in the fall!
4.8 on August 09, 2012
The owner goes out of her way to make you feel at home. She goes above and beyond what you expect from the run of the mill b & b. So much is provided for you that you barely have to pack a thing. We have come back 4 times so far. We feel so pampered when we stay here. We will return. We have stayed in 4 different rooms so far. Can't wait to try out the rest.
5 on August 03, 2012
Outstanding hosts, great staff, Amazing food, charming and well-kept place. Susan got us covered whether it was sunblock, water, beach stuff, towels-everything we could possibly need was provided and more.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Mission Inn for a second time and this time my in-laws came as well. A great time was had by all. Susan & Ray make you feel at home and the places is outstanding not to mention one block from the beach. The rooms are wonderful and the service is fantastic. You will not be disappointed when you stay there... Enjoy!
5 on July 28, 2012
Once again, the Mission Inn exceeded expectations. It was a pleasure meeting Ray this time around, both him and Susan are such a joy and take such pride in their Inn. The Inn has everything you could ask for, and even things you never knew you wanted. We will be back soon!
5 on July 23, 2012
3rd stay just gets better and better! Inn owners Susan and Raymond, Leslie, Janet and the staff who maintain the rooms are just outstanding in keeping you clean comfortable, up to date on events, restuarants for us foodies. The inn keepers are always keeping the Inn and its surrounding maintained and improved! Hard place to beat,looking forward to next year! GIve him 5 Pineapples!!
4.2 on July 23, 2012
Once again, we had a lovely stay at the Mission Inn. It is our second stay and the Santa Barbara was as expected. We hope to eventually come back and try all of the rooms. It is always a pleasure to stay Sue and Ray's place. Always welcomed and felt like home.
4.8 on July 22, 2012
We were treated better than if we had stayed at a 5 star hotel. Susan and Ray were amazing hosts and your every need was taken care of.
4.6 on July 17, 2012
Very nice B&B. Susan's attention to detail at the Inn is evident, in that everything is near perfect. Staff is very nice, friendly and the little extras that they give you show they really do care about you having a great time. The murals through the Inn are outstanding.
5 on July 16, 2012
The Mission Inn was simply amazing! My Wife and I stayed there for our honeymoon and the hostess was simply incredible. We were impressed with all of the perks such as beach chairs, beach passes, the hostess even called and made reservations for us to one of the best restaurants in the area. The breakfast served was absolutely memorable, they have a great chief. My wife chose the hotel because of the themed rooms, the decor was impressive and the room itself was very comfortable, I wish we could live there! You will not be disappointed.
5 on July 13, 2012
While we only had time to stay for 2 evenings, it was well worth the drive! Before we checked in we discussed future stays at different B&Bs. But after our first night, we decided that nothing could hold a candle to the Mission Inn! Thank you for a fabulous retreat!
4.6 on July 09, 2012
As repeat guests of The Mission Inn, we once again had a truly enjoyable stay. Breakfasts are out of this world. Innkeepers Susan and Ray went out of their way to make us feel welcome, comfortable and at home. They provide bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas, which is so convenient because it's less we have to worry about when packing :). Susan was full of suggestions on things to do and places to eat. They really do make it easy for the guests...they even provide Q-tips, cotton balls and robes in every room! We've stayed in 3 different rooms--each beautiful and uniquely decorated. And being only 2 blocks from the beach, we enjoyed coming back late afternoon for hors d'oeuvres--of course different variety each day--YUM!! Staying at The Mission Inn is a wonderful experience...and the only place we will stay when visiting Cape May!
5 on June 28, 2012
Quite simply the best B&B we have ever been to. A beautiful quiet setting . Susan and Ray are very attentive and yet not intrusive. The breakfasts are a visual and culinary delight. Afternoon tea is a meal in itself. And, they have wooden puzzles! This will become a regular get away for us. Jim and Wendy Emrich
5 on June 27, 2012
We loved our stay at the Mission Inn... this bed and breakfast is so beautiful and charming.. The location is wonderful One block from the beach and a short walk into town.. so we didn't have to get in our car once the whole weekend. The breakfast was delicious too. The best part about the Mission Inn is the wonderful innkeepers who attended to our every need.. forgot suntan lotion - they had it! Bikes were available as were beach towels, chairs and even an umbrella. Delicious appetizers waiting for us each afternoon too.. A fabulous Bed and Breakfast.. 5 stars across the board in our book! Thank you Susan and Ray
5 on June 27, 2012
We are never disappointed when we stay at the Mission Inn. Susan and Ray are very gracious hosts who anticipate any of your needs and make you feel like part of an extended family. The location is perfect and the rooms are works of art. Perfect in every detail. Mike and Carmen
5 on June 20, 2012
Everything was PERFECT. Susan and Ray were wonderful hosts and their staff was fantastic. Our first time there but won't be our last. They thought of everything. Rooms were beautiful, food was great and we felt like family. Pictures do not do it justice. I cannot say one thing negative. Oh yeah I can -- we only stayed one night -- we should have stayed longer, much longer.
4.8 on June 12, 2012
My wife and I finally got a weekend away (just the two of us, no friends, no family, no kids) after about 5 years and The Mission Inn was the perfect spot. The mission was well appointed and the room that we stayed in was spacious. It could rival any luxury hotel we've stayed at. The bathroom was nicely updated and the shower experience was phenomenal. You had access to 8 total body sprayers! Yes, 8! The room was very clean as well. What helped make the stay amazing was all the extras that are provided free of charge as well as Susan and Ray (the innkeepers). With your stay you have access to beach cruisers, beach chairs, and beach towels just to name a few. That's all you really need. Everything was either within walking distance or biking distance. Susan and Ray are an amazing and super friendly couple. They were very sweet and very accommodating. If you needed reservations, they were always willing to help out. If you needed anything special, they would do their best to accommodate. I would highly recommend The Mission Inn to anyone looking for a nice, quiet, quaint B&B in Cape May. Oh, I forgot to mention that the breakfast was delicious and what was a nice surprise was the afternoon appetizers and hors d'oeuvres.
5 on June 06, 2012
Susan and Ray take great care of you and will surpass and surprise you with the eperience. Super customer care, healthy food, relaxing environment, very comfortable bed. Truly memorable.
5 on June 01, 2012
Although Ray and Susan are friends, they treated ALL guests as if they had known them for 20 years too! You have to experience their cook, Leslie 's, breakfasts. They are to die for! Each course was artfully displayed as well as delicious & delivered by Leslie herself. Believe everything you heard about the Mission Inn. It is number one! Kevin & Connie eves everything you heard about the Mission Inn... it is number one!
5 on May 30, 2012
This is one amazing Bed and breakfast!!! When we travel we like to stay places on par of where we live if not better, but this place exceeded that!! From the moment we were greeted by Susan the owner she made us feel like we have stayed many times. Her and her husbands warmth were felt our entire stay. We have been to Cape May many times and unfortunately overlooked The Mission Inn but will never stay anywhere else from now on. Rooms, service, food and hospitality were all superior. Cudos to Susan and Ray for keeping up such a beautiful "Home"!!!! Hope to see you again in the very near future. Eleanor and Nick Fenkner
4.6 on May 23, 2012
Our hosts love what they do and it shows. They treat us like family, only better. The rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean. They pay attention to every detail with meticulous care. We've been going to the Mission Inn for many years and would never go anywhere else.
5 on May 16, 2012
My wife and I stayed at the Mission Inn for our anniversary weekend. Susan and Ray have done and outstanding job with creating a very unique inn. They pay the utmost attention to every detail. We got there early and were lucky enough to have a tour of all the guset rooms, they are all beautiful! From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel like family. They are very helpful and knowledgable about the local area and can recommend the perfect thing for you. The breakfasts and afternoon treats are incredible! We are looking forward to our return visit.
5 on May 09, 2012
We were looking for a quiet, comfortable getaway. The Mission Inn was the ticket. We enjoyed creative gourmet breakfasts on the terrace, took long walks on the beach only one block away, enjoyed delicious hors d'oeuvres late in the afternoon and tucked into our cozy, beautiful room for three nights. It was hard to leave Susan and Ray’s welcoming hospitality. They even went out of their way to help us find a rental for our family to return in the summer. We fell in love with the Mission Inn and will be back!
5 on May 01, 2012
The Mission Inn is unlike any other B&B. I do not like the lace and frills and "oldness" of ordinary B&Bs and this has none of that! The attention to detail, the decor, the hospitality, and the food are in a class all by themselves. I will never be able to stay anywhere else but here ever again! They spoil you form the minute you walk in until the minute you leave - which we did not want to do - leave.
5 on April 27, 2012
Great place to stay. Hostess was terrific. Place immaculate. Breakfast delicious.
5 on April 18, 2012
The Mission Inn was a wonderful experience for my husband and myself. From the moment we arrived Susan was so welcoming and showed us everything. The Inn is quite unique! We loved the way it was decorated from every space on the walls to the rooms with the jacuzzi tubs and large showers. The other guests were also very friendly. Our breakfast was amazing! The juice selection, fruit and the chef prepared a beautiful main course that was scrumptious! Our coffee never got cold because Susan and Robert were extremely attentive. To top off the wonderful place there were delicious horderves in the afternoon and cookies all day long! We can not wait to return there!
5 on April 15, 2012
My husband and I recently enjoyed a 3 night stay at Mission Inn at Cape May. We have stayed at many bed an breakfsts and this was the best. The Inn ismeticoulsly maintained, with fresh flowers everywhere, wonderful snacks and amazing breakfast. The Innkeepers treat you like royalty but also like a part of their family. The rooms are very comfrotable, great sitting areas both in and outside. If you are looking for traditional victorian cape may - this is not it....this is something different with the mission motif, but someething truly special. Enjoy!!
4.6 on March 15, 2012
My wife and I took a weekend getaway and couldn't have been more thrilled with Mission Inn. The rooms were unique and comfortable and fantastically renovated. You will not be disappointed with the bathrooms! The owners are terrific and make you feel like part of their family from the moment you make your reservation. Every effort was made to make you feel at home and was successfully done. This will be our bed and breakfast destination for every future trip to Cape May!
5 on March 09, 2012
We have been going to Cape May for 20+years and have stayed at many different inns and hotels. Two years ago we decided to try the Mission Inn. We will never stay anywhere else! The inn and the innkeepers are so welcoming, the rooms impeccably appointed, and the breakfasts truely gourmet. It has two large common rooms to relax, read, nap or sit in front of the fireplace. Dining on the veranda for breakfast you can watch the ocean, what a way to begin the day! Susan and Ray went above and beyond to help with dinner reservations and the like. Please, treat yourself and go to the Mission Inn!

Susan & Ray are wonderful - warm and inviting. Same as the Mission Inn. It is a wonderful retreat. So different & unique!

We stayed the weekend before valentines day. The room's design was amazing, we felt as though we were in the garden of the mission. The murals on the walls were so incredible. Susan and Ray were excellent hosts, they made us feel like we were staying at a favorite aunt's home. We can't wait to return. I know my girlfriend agrees because she has said at least a dozen times that this was the best valentine ever. Thank you

Sue & Ray- My husband set up this romantic weekend for a night (Only night away with the children) We came from Ocean Grove, N.J. which is not a long ride at all. He asked me if I wanted anything specific. I said, "Yes-please find something with a hot tub / big bath tub and BOY he did. He said that he hunted around on the internet for close to 6hrs (Not at once) and found this place. Something drew him to it and here we are! Something drew me to it also as we pulled up I was so excited and so relaxed. One thing we enjoyed very much is that it was NOT in the middle of the summer and it was so beautiful and so pleasant. As I am sure it would be in the summer as well. Sue and Ray made it so special and so beautiful from the moment we arrived they made it feel as though it was our home away from home as well. You are surrounded my beauty and love. The meals were excellent! I am even making my daughter that breakfast tomorrow morning before school. ( I wont tell you what it is then I will ruin your surprise) It is a MUST that you go check this place out. You will be hooked as my husband and I are now. I even said, "Are kids alloud here" Then my husband hit me in the arm...HeHeHe what was I thinking NO-WAY I love you my children but this is our home away from home now. We will be back and we are looking to spend time here at least once a year and nothing less. This is how beautiful and pleasant it was for us as it will be for all of you as well...........See you soon Susan and Ray. Next time we will try another room and hit them all up after each different stay! Love always, The couple from Ocean Grove, N.J.

My husband and I were thrilled to stumble upon the Mission Inn on our search for a babymoon location. Our hosts were more than gracious and generous. We were greeted by their smiling faces, friendly recommendations, and delicious appetizers. They even gave us an adorable gift bag filled with baby goodies to celebrate our upcoming baby! The inn was immaculate and beautifully decorated. Breakfast the next morning was absolutely incredible. The juices were fantastically yummy and the food was just as exceptional. The entire time our every need was met and we felt cozy and comfortable. We will definitely be returning!

This was my husband & my first B&B experience and we were SOLD! I truly feel sorry for other B&B's because the bar the inn keepers Susan & Ray set us at was above and beyond a 10!! Their inn from the moment you walk in smells and feels warm and like home. They are fully stocked in beverages, have enough room for you to keep stuff in the guest refrigerator so you can store stuff to reheat later! the rooms are all different and are beautifully decorated. The breakfast in the morning made by Leslie is AMAZING!!! i thought i would never be left speechless after eating breakfast but i WAS!! The appetizers made by Susan EVERY evening are simply to-die for! We have already booked additional stays for the remainder of the year and this time next year! We wanted to secure "our room". Everyone you MUST go to The Mission Inn!

Attention to every detail, best B&B anywhere. All rooms are unique each has a fireplace and all have two person jacuzzi tubs with all but one have two person showers.Breakfast was to die for. Left feeling pamperd and rested highly recomend

Warm and welcoming. Jacuzzi tub for two adds to the romance of the well appointed and well decorated Spanish mission themed rooms. Great hors d'oeuvres and a scrumptious breakfast were a real treat. My favorite was the always open, well stocked fridge on the sun porch. It's perfect for a late after dinner drink back in the room. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks, Susan and Ray!

Simply the best B&B we've ever stayed in! We can't wait to go back!

My husband and I just love the Mission Inn in Cape May. Susan and Raymond have a very special place, and made us feel like family. Everything is comfortable and elegant. So relaxing. Breakfast is fabulous. We highly recommend this wonderful inn.

I have never stayed at a B&B before and only chose the Mission Inn off of reading reviews and I could not have been happier with my choices. We just stayed there last night and left this morning and already planning our next visit!! I took my boyfriend here for his bday present and he had no idea where we were going or where we were staying!! First meeting Susan and Ray he was wowed about how they make you feel at home as soon as you walk in and then after Ray showed us to our room Jim was just in aww about the room the house everything it was a perfect choice!!! Susan and Ray thank you again so much!! The decor and the rooms and the murals are just amazing!! Our breakfast was fabulous!! Everything I can't say enough!! And the best part is Susan and Ray keep this gem so clean you could literally eat off the floor!!! You will not go wrong choosing The Mission Inn for your stay!!!

A beautiful B&B with all the quaintness of Cape May, but with a unique flair. The replications of the California missions are stunningly accurate. The accomodations are elegant and modern, while maintaining the soft style that is Cape May. We received a warm welcome and friendly hospitality from Susan & Raymond. Finally, the breakfast was by far the best we've had in the Cape. We have enjoyed visiting a new B&B each Christmas time, but now I believe we have found our annual stay!

i had never been to cape may and was pleasantly surprised. the town was wonderful, holiday lights, carraige ride, and lots of shopping. i was very impressed with our lodgings. the rooms were terrific, we had a tour; and the service was extraordinary. nothing was neglected or done half way. i would highly reccommend the mission inn.

Service better than most 5 star hotels that I have stayed at. Attention to detail, attention to comfort and especially the attention to my wife and I, were once again, extraordinary. Don't believe the endless 5 star ratings that the Mission Inn continues to generate? Try a night or two at this remarkable establishment and see if find any reason to rate it less. Susan & Ray are born inn keepers. Their love of their guests and of their creation rings out in every detail, accommodation, hors d'oeuvre and breakfast. The inn is more an art gallery/spa than just a nice place to eat and sleep. Choose a room; any room, and see what true commitment, attention to detail and honest hard work yields. We've already booked again for next holiday season. See you there!

Susan and Ray have created a special place. We loved our stay. It was perfect in every way. Whenever we return to Cape May, it will be the only place we will stay. Thanks Susan and Ray for making our stay special. Anita & Louis

My husband and I stayed at the Mission Inn about a month ago. This was our second visit to this inn and we loved it just as much as the 1st time. We tell everyone, if they want to see what a B&B is supposed to be like to go here. Susan & Ray are the nicest people you will ever meet, you really feel like family when you are with them. Their staff is extremely nice and our room was BEAUTIFUL! (We stayed in the San Diego de Alcala). We will definitely be back soon!

The Mission Inn is definitely the most clean place we've stayed. The rooms are beautiful, the food is wonderful and Susan is so sweet. Reservations were made for us at Tisha's for dinner. It was delicious. Hubby and I are hoping to get back in July for our 15 year Anniversary! So quiet, so charming. I thought the murals on the walls would be a little overwhelming, they were gorgeous. The decor was so warm. Thanks for a great stay

My husband and I spent our 2nd wedding anniversary at The Mission Inn and it was fantastic! This was the best B&B we've ever stayed in. Susan and Ray made us feel like we were out of town family instead of just guests. They were very warm and hospitable. They made sure we were very comfortable. They informed us of all the activities that we going on that week as well as make suggestions on were to dine. Susan made the most incredible breakfast! The rooms were warm, cozy and absolutely gorgeous! We can not wait to return to The Mission Inn!!!!!! Kara&Kevin (MD)

My wife and I stayed here for our first wedding anniversary, during a Nor'easter in October. The weather was absolutely horrible. Fortunately, everything was perfect at the Mission Inn... the rooms were beautiful, the food was great, and the staff really made you feel at home. I can't wait to go back!
5 on November 02, 2011
It was our first time at The Mission Inn. We have visited just a couple of other bed and breakfasts in the Cape May area. Susan and Raymond were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts and appetizers were delicious. The inn was clean and inviting. The refrigerator is stocked with soda, wine, iced tea and lemonde. There is a variety of coffees for the keuring pot just waiting for you at any time. We stayed in the Santa Clara room. So cozy, with a jacuzzi and I wanted to take the 2 person shower home with me. Looking forward to revisiting the Inn, the staff and Susan and Raymond. Sincerely, Jamie H

The hosts and owners will make you feel very special and right at home! Wonderful place, very special.

We've been to several B&Bs but the Mission Inn stands far above the rest! Susan and Ray are fabulous hosts and the Inn is just magnificent. The rooms are spacious and there is always cold wine and beverages available through out the day. Not to mention the special cookies and 4pm appetizers! The gourmet breakfasts on the veranda starts your relaxing time. Ready for some exercise? Bikes are on hand, and you are close to the ocean (beach chairs and umbrellas are also supplied), and of course shopping. Susan and Ray make you feel at home and have everything available you could ask for! And that's why we keep coming back! And not just us, on your first visit you'll meet several other couples that are repeaters too. :)

My husband and I stayed at The Mission Inn for just one night. Not enough!!! Susan and Ray (the owners) were happy to meet my request to stay 1 night on a weekend. It was wonderful. The Mission Inn is very unique with it's beautiful handpainted murals throughout. The rooms were tastefully decorated and very clean. The atmosphere made it feel like home. The fireplaces made it very cozy on a cold fall night. The breakfast prepared by Leslie and served by the innkeepers was a delectable treat. We will be back for sure !!! The Testas'

Thanks to our friends Chris and Deb for recommending the Mission Inn for our honeymoon. Tammy and I found the Mission Inn so comforting in all aspects. The Mission Inn inn keepers Susan and Ray have done a remarkable job to the inn. The place is beautiful inside and out. I know we have found out B&B at Cape May for our anniversaries and more. Very clean, great food, great place and much more. Thank You, Craig & Tammy newlyweds.

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for our "babymoon" and could not have picked a better B+B. Susan and her staff consistently went above and beyond to make out stay special and memorable. Our room was beautiful and well and the rest of the inn. The breakfasts were delicious and more than enough to fill you for the morning into the afternoon! We especially loved the afternoon homemade appetizers and drinks! Can't wait to go back to the Mission inn!

My wife and I decided to spend our 15th Wedding Anniversary in Cape May. My wife and I arrived and were greeted by the owner Susan. She welcomed us into her home and showed us around. As we toured the Inn, she explained her labor of love and how her and Ray had transformed the Inn. We made our way to our room, the San Francisco de Asis room. Wow, what a beautiful work of art. As with several of the other rooms we got to tour, our room was so inviting and perfect. Susan and Ray have thought of it all, they provided us with bikes to ride, beach chairs and umbrellas to take to the beach, and always offered us beverages to take with us. Before we left, the staff asked us what we were thinking of for dinner. Janet provided us with menus to look at and then made the reservation for us. After returning from biking, we enjoyed the afternoon hors d'oeuvre and met some of the other guests. That night the bed was so comfortable and provided a great night of sleep. The next morning we woke to the smell of breakfast filling the house. Words cannot explain just how great the breakfasts were. Our taste buds were in heaven! From the linens, to the great smelling-soft towels and robes, to the toiletries in the bathroom and along the tub, Susan and Ray didn't forget a thing. We were amazed at such great hospitality. Before we knew it, the weekend was over and it was time to leave. What a sad reality check. But what a perfect weekend! The staff and the comfort of the Inn made it perfect. We will definitely return and look forward to that day. Thank you Susan and Ray!

Had a great time in a great place. The Mission Inn is small (8 rooms) so you can meet the other guests and Susan and Ray make every effort to make the Inn feel like a home away from home. The room was gorgeous, clean, with modern amenities. And the breakfasts were superior---Leslie is just one fantastic cook. I will definitely return---and recommend the Mission Inn to my friends.

Sue and Ray, We were so lucky to get such nice days for our fall stay. The inn is beautifully painted with murals of the California Missions and as an artist it was a delight to be in such artistic surroundings. Our room was large with a jacuzzi a fireplace. We both felt like we were at home but even better. I don't make snacks at 4:00 everyday. The breakfasts were wonderful too. We plan on coming back again soon. Thanks Susan and Ray.

This is like our home away from home. Everytime we arrive, we are greeted warmly by name and treated so well. There's no other place we would ever stay in Cape May but the Mission Inn. We love Ray, Susan and their staff. They are gracious and accomodating beyond what's required. We truly feel at home here.

The stay was wonderful---the hosts made you feel right at home...lots of thought giving to details...sodas in the fridge, brownies on the counter, wonderful breakfast served either outside or inside. Rooms relaxing---spa tub fantastic. Just a wonderful couple of days away from the hustle and bustle of life, work, etc. Would highly recommend a stay at this bed and breakfast.

My wife and I recently enjoyed a three night stay at The Mission Inn. While we have stayed at dozens of B&B's on both coasts over the last 30 years, we must say that our stay at The Mission was, while brief, the most enjoyable we have experienced. Susan and Ray are the friendliest, most caring and most courteous inn keepers we have met. They instantly make you feel 'at home' and as though you are a long time friend. The breakfasts and afternoon Hors d'Oeuvres are hand made from scratch, taking into consideration personal dieatary resrtictions. A lovely experience that we plan on enjoying again as soon as possible! Dr. Ralph and Terry

The Mission Inn is the best B&B in Cape May. We will continue to stay their each year. We love it, the food is wonderful and Ray and Susan are so kind. It's really much more than a B&B.

Fabulous anniversary/babymoon weekend at the Mission Inn! After 5 wonderful years of marriage and our first little one on the way I had to make sure that I planned something relaxing but still extraordinary in my search for the right B&B in Cape May. I searched the 61+ offerings in the Cape May area and knew once I saw the pictures online of the Mission Inn, that this was a special place. It was a last minute accommodation but Susan was extremely helpful to get me reserved for the LAST room available. The pictures online are great but once you step foot inside The Mission Inn you get a true taste of the west and the Inn Keepers' commitment to bringing a truly unique B&B experience. Our room was perfect, king size bed, jacuzzi tub with shower and murals and detail to take you to what seems to be another part of the world. The Inn is a block off the beach (walking distance) and offers all the necessary ammenities, beach towels, bicycles, chairs, ice packs for coolers and umbrellas! Finding out what was being served for breakfast each morning was like Christmas morning! Each morning something new, fresh and homemade served on the outside patio (weather permitting) was the perfect start to each day. The afternoon snacks were a great way to hold yourself over till dinner later that night. Susan and Raymond (Inn Keepers) have created an incredible place of relaxation with great service in every aspect! We look forward to numerous future getaways at The Mission Inn! (Many of the other guests had been there numerous times before) Thank you for the memories!

My wife and I have been visiting Cape May for over twenty years, and have stayed in several Bed and Breakfast Inns, over that time period. We had previously settled on the Duke of Windsor, as the best and most enjoyable Inn in Cape May to stay at. Unfortunately the owner sold that Inn a few years ago. When we asked her for her recommendation of a new Bed and Breakfast in Cape May to stay at, she unconditionally recommended the Mission Inn, and no others. We have now stayed at the Mission Inn on seven or eight occassiions over the past few years, and each time, when it comes time for us to leave, we always regret leaving the Inn. Each time, we are made to feel welcome immediately upon arriving. Immaculate rooms, decorated in a California MIssion theme , exquisite and delicious breakfasts, and hosts that make you feel like family and friends. We have found out that our opinions aren't the exception, but the norm for the folks from all over, that we have met time and again at the Mission Inn. Susan and Ray, are people that you will never forget, and as the Hosts with the mostest, they are second to none. Mel & Marge, Brick, N.J.

My husband and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary in Cape May (where we met!) and stayed at the Mission Inn. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home. Susan and Ray are wonderful hosts. The afternoon snacks are scrumptious and the breakfasts fantastic. One block from the beach and a easy walk to the center of town. They think of everything from beach towels, chairs/umbrellas and bikes. Would absolutley come back and could thin of no other place I would stay when in Cape May!
5 on September 12, 2011
I have traveled a lot and have stayed at many places and the Mission Inn is by far one the best I have ever stayed in. Your hosts are true professionals, the food amazing and delightful and rooms fantastic. You want from nothing when you stay here. We are already booked again for next year.

Susan and Ray could not be more gracious and accommodating. Looking forward to our next visit.

The Mission Inn is outstanding in all respects, rooms are one of a kind, unique, in every way, romatic! The breakfast is gourmet! The service is very warm, good, and personable. I would and will go back. Great place for a couple of days when you want to go to Cape May. Highly recommend.

We just came back from 3 days at The Mission Inn. My husband and I have been to several other Inns in Cape May over the past 20 years but have never been treated like we were family. Susan and Ray couldn't do enough for us. They are exceptional people. The food was fantastic. The Inn is beautiful and cozy. We will definitely be back. Louisa & Dennis Montague, NJ

We were very happy with our visit to The Mission Inn in Cape May, NJ. The owners and staff were very friendly and warm. As were the other guests. The Inn is close enough to town to make easy access but far enough away to avoid overly crowded areas. The room was very spacious and the general open areas for all guests was spacious as well. This Bed and Breakfast was the best thought out and best designed of all of the ones we've been to in Cape May over the years. I have no reservations in recommending The Mission Inn. I don't have room to list everything there is to say. The guests are thought of at all times while the atmosphere was warm and friendly at the same time. Perfect balance of everything. Can't wait to go back!

Bed and Breakfast de premier ordre ! Accueil charmant ... service courtois et chaleureux ... Chambre "parfaite", ultra-propre, confortable, joliment décorée ... Vélos disponibles sur place (parfait pour visiter Cape May)... Plage à 2 minutes ... J'y retourne sans hésitation ! BRAVISSIMO !!!

From the time we checked in until checkout Susan and Ray made us feel like family. This was our third trip to the Mission Inn and it just keeps getting better and better. The breakfast that they serve is delicious and if its possible,it gets better each day.Our room was clean and well stocked with towels and toiletries,the decor is beautiful and it seems they are constantly making improvements to their inn. The afternoon social hour is a nice touch with wonderful culinary treats and an oppurtunity to meet some of the other guests. Iwould recommend The Mission Inn to anyone looking for a relaxing few days in a casual,yet elegant setting.

My husband and I have been going to Cape May for the last 25 years and have stayed at several places, BUT, by far The Mission Inn has been the best. You can tell that Susan loves and enjoys what she it doing and that makes a big difference in how you enjoy the stay. We enjoy Cape May for the laid back atmosphere and our vacation was perfect.

What a beautiful place to stay! The wonderful Innkeepers, Susan and Raymond, and their fabulous staff, make you feel comfortable & at home the moment you get out of your car. We stayed in the Santa Barbara room & it was just lovely. We really wanted to take the shower home with us, but I guess we'll just have to go back again to use it :-) Everything is kept nice and clean. The breakfast were delicious & the afternoon "appetizers", which were more like a light meal were fantastic! It was fun to see what fabulous surprises we would have each day. The Inn is only one block from the beach & within walking distance of some really great restaurants. They've thought of everything, all you have to do is pack some clothes & get ready to be pampered & taken care of. We hated to leave and we will definitely be going back again.

My girlfriend and I booked a three night stay at the Mission Inn in August 2011 based on the reviews we read online. The reviews don't serve the inn the justice it deserves. Truly the best vacation of our lives. I have stayed at Ritz-Carltons, the Waldorf-Astoria, Omni Parker House, and W Hotels and they could learn a thing or two from the quality of service the Mission Inn provides. Breakfast is outstanding, location is just off the beaten path but well within walking distance of town and the beach, but most importantly the owners are genuine and genial. Would and have highly recommended to everyone I know!

When the Stones roll in, we are at our home away from home. We have visited Susan & Ray, our attention to detail host and hostess - at the Mission Inn each summer and many autumn and winter seasons too - over the past 7 years. The Inn is lovely and the food is superb. The Roberts are always upgrading something significant as they consistently reinvest in their 100 year old showplace. Love the beach tags, great bikes and beach chairs & umbrellas too!
4.8 on August 07, 2011
Susan & Raymond were Fabulous hosts!! They thought of everything a guest could want before we knew we even wanted it. The Inn is warm & comfortable and you barely even knew the staff existed-you went to breakfast and poof-your room was cleaned & refreshed by the time you returned. We went bike riding into the quaint city center, sunned on the beach and had wonderful dinners in town; bikes, umbrellas, & beach towels provided by the Inn were all in tip top condition, just like I'd provide the guests that visit my own home in Florida! Dining recommendations were spot on-never had a bad meal, especially Susan's breakfasts - WOW!! It will be our home away from home when John & I are in Cape May (or anywhere close enough to drive to from there)- but better because I don't have to cook or clean, Susan & Raymond take care of all that and more!! We had a great experience with our hosts, their other guests and the town. We'll be back again & again. Thanks, Deborah Roche

Wished we could have stayed longer. We were only able to get away 1 night but it was perfection. The owners, Susan & Ray are warm, friendly and charming. The inn is clean, comfortable and well appointed. Between the fabulous, hearty breakfast and scrumptious hors d'oevres and sweets, you don't need to eat much else. We will definitely visit again!

My husband and I fell in love with this B&B & decided that this will be the place we will always stay at when visiting Cape May, NJ. All the rooms are beautifully hand-painted offering a luxurious yet cozy feeling. The food was outstanding; I couldn't wait to see what they were going to serve every morning. The owners, Ray & Susan, were extremely nice. They make it feel like you are visiting your family’s beach house for the weekend. They offer a lot of complimentary amenities that we haven't seen before (my husband couldn't get enough of their homemade lemonade; it is the best he's ever had). The Mission Inn has definitely set the bar high for any other B&B's we decide to stay at.
5 on August 02, 2011
We just spent four nights at The Mission Inn in Cape May. The accommodations were beyond what we expected. Susan and Ray are wonderful hosts who do anything they can to make your stay comfortable. Breakfast each morning was fantastic! Our room was spacious and beautiful. The location is terrific. Only one block to the beach and an easy walk. Well worth the money! We can't wait to go back!
4.6 on July 31, 2011
We only had time for a one night stay and found the Mission Inn had one night available in the San Diego de Alcala room which we found to be clean, cool, comfortable, spacious and well-appointed with terrific Mission decor. The bed was a little too firm to suit me, but my wife found it to her liking. The shower was the best I have ever been in. Susan was an excellent hostess and Leslie an imaginative chef. The Mission style was a nice departure from the the Victorian B&B's that dominate Cape May. Being a short 15-20 minute walk from the busyness of the downtown shopping areas was nice as it was quiet at night with only the sounds of the ocean which was a very short walk away. The Inn offers bicycles, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and free passes as well as a convenient bath house facility to wash the beach off before re-entering the Inn. All in all, a delightful place to stay. We are ready to return.
5 on July 30, 2011
Very unique accommodations.. Spacious, very very clean and pleasant. Breakfast is a real treat!!! We will not stay anywhere else in Cape May. Susan and Ray are the ultimate hosts... Just pack your bathing suit, some clothes and a few personal items.... everything else is at your finger tips at this absolutely beautiful B&B.

I've been reading reviews on the Internet for years but have never before written a review. I knew that a place would have to be outstanding to compel me to write. I have found that place in "The Mission Inn." We chose the Mission Inn after seeing their rating and reading all of the glowing reviews. Since we only had 2 nights to spend, we wanted to make sure it was perfect. It was! We were greeted by Susan upon our arrival and shown to our luxurious, immaculate room, the San Juan Bautista. Our walls were hand painted, and our king bed headboard was a replica of the mission made out of hand-carved wood. We had a fireplace and our bathroom was complete with wine glasses, a television, a 2 person jacuzzi tub and a spa shower. We were lucky enough to get a peek at the other rooms and were amazed at the detail of the painting and decorating of each room. The food was amazing...truly a gourmet experience! We loved riding the bikes and were pleased to know that we also had access to beach badges, beach chairs, beach towels and umbrellas. Susan has a gift of making everyone feel special! I would recommend to everyone that they stay at the Mission Inn. Once you stay there, you'll never consider anyplace else. We can't wait to go back again! Thank you to Susan & Ray for our wonderful experience! Room Tip: Every room was jaw-dropping beautiful...you can't go wrong with any one of them!

This was our 4th stay at Mission Inn and Susan and Ray run a first-rate inn. Extremely accommodating and always there to make your stay more enjoyable. The rooms are charming with modern amenities. The food is delicious. Janet does a lovely job in the afternoon. Go! You won't be disappointed.

Most wonderful place to stay in Cape May. Susan and Ray are the greatest inn keepers and two of the nicest people you could want to meet. The inn is beautiful, breakfasts are superb and the amenities are awesome, bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas! NOT ONE SINGLE COMPLAINT! Worth every penny and a memorable vacation!

Our stay at the Mission Inn was beautiful and relaxing. When Susan, the owner of the Mission Inn, discovered that it was my first time in Cape May, she gladly talked to my boyfriend and I about what kind of activities were available. They provided ample amounts of literature to give us any additional information that we needed. She was the loveliest host and she made us feel so welcome. It really feels like you're a part of a family when you stay at the Mission Inn. We were introduced to the other guests as they came and went. Everyone was so unbelievably friendly. The other guests gave us restaurant recommendations and were extremely interested in what we were going to be doing on our trip. It was great to get feedback from others about what they enjoyed doing in Cape May. We stayed in the Santa Clara room and it was absolutely beautiful. The entire Inn is so exquisitely decorated. Susan told us about all of the renovations that they had made and are currently making. We saw a mural being worked on little by little during our stay. It's wonderful to know that Susan and her husband Ray are adamant about continually making improvements to the property. I'm not quite sure of what amenities the other bed and breakfasts supply but the Mission Inn is very accommodating. They supply beach passes, bikes, beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, and boogie boards. They have almost everything that you could possibly need for a day at the beach. Susan and Ray have really made life so much easier! We loved the Mission Inn so much that we're already trying to plan our next visit!
5 on July 18, 2011
From the moment we entered the Mission Inn we were welcomed and pampered. Susan and Ray are such personable hosts and their genuine care and thoughtfulness make you feel so very special and appreciated. Truly one of our best B&B experiences. Everything was fresh and new. The breakfasts were relaxed and delicious and we came home with a new recipe.
4.8 on July 05, 2011
The Mission Inn is the only B&B my husband and I have stayed in and it is the only Inn we will stay in when in Cape May. We have been going to the Mission Inn every year for the past 6 years and every year we enjoy our stay more and more! The inn keepers are the most gracious hosts and treat guests like family. The chef prepares delicious gourmet breakfasts each morning and there are delectable snacks served each afternoon. Every year there are beautiful design enhancements made to the interior. Each room is designed to represent a California Mission. The details to design including carved headboards and painted murals is extraordinary. The Mission Inn is just beautiful, warm and inviting. We just returned from the long July 4th weekend and cannot wait to return to this gem of Cape May.

If you want quality R&R at the Jersey shore, and do it in sheer luxury and comfort, The Mission Inn in Cape May is the place to go. We've been to many B&B's....however, none compares with The Mission Inn. Susan and Ray are sweet, accomodating and personable innkeepers and the breakfasts (as well as the 4 pm hors d'oeurves) were fabulous. The inn amenities include a comfortable reading/game room where guests enjoy friendly chatter, plentiful coffee, tea, cold drinks, cookies, a private back patio with comfortable lounges, huge porch for eating/reading, and a charming living room with fireplace. Just one block off the beach, Susan and Ray also provide beach tags, chairs, umbrellas and bicycles. These factors alone give The Mission Inn an "A" rating....but what makes this B&B so very special are the spectacular rooms, each unique in its own southwest decor, with 5-star state-of-the-art showers (and in some rooms, hot tubs). But....don't expect any computer....this is still a B&B....and if you're like me, you'll be grateful to take a few days off from the internet!

In late June,I spent two nights at the Mission Inn. An old friend from out of town and I decided to leave the husbands behind and have a girls getaway.The innkeepers were gracious, friendly and made you feel like they were welcoming you into their own home. The accommodations (every room has a king size bed) were first class. The place was immaculate and every important detail was addressed to provide comfort for the guest. Each room is unique and every wall was painted with gorgeous murals. The shower stall was something out of an exclusive spa. The common rooms also were painted with murals, had very comfortable furniture and a full size refrigerator stocked with soda, iced tea, lemonade, seltzer and white wine for the guests. Designated shelves were available for the guests' personal items to be refrigerated. Breakfast was wonderful, though a large man might be a little hungry and afternoon hors d'oeuvres were delicious. The Inn is only a block from the beach and beach tags, umbrellas, beach towels and chairs are provided. I can hardly wait to go again!

My wife and I recently stayed five nights and had a lovely visit. We were asked ahead of time about any food issues, so the breakfast and the late afternoon snacks would not present unwanted surprises. Everything that would be necessary for an enjoyable stay in Cape May was provided. We were warned ahead of time that the particular room we stayed in had a very small shower/commode arrangement which is beyond their control to remodel; that was indeed a tight space, but, it was not a surprise for us. All in all, we would highly recommend The Mission Inn to friends - and we already have!

Very gracious owners who made us feel so at home in our recent June trip. Can't wait to go back.

We had the most wonderful, relaxing, luxurious weekend at the Mission Inn June 24-26, 2011, which was our first visit to Cape May. Every need and wish are fulfilled by the most professional owners and staff. The Roberts' have thought of EVERYTHING and truly make the Mission Inn your home for your stay: after the overwhelmingly-lovely tour, the combination to the front door is yours and the entire premises are your own 24/7. Delicious breakfasts, delightful afternoon snacks, friendly and attentive staff, casually-elegant and quiet atmosphere, one short block from the beach, all beach needs provided (including towels), wonderful bicycles, and perfect location. We parked the car there and never got back into the car (until we sadly drove away) as we walked or biked everywhere in beautiful, bike-friendly Cape May. We cannot wait to come back!
5 on June 28, 2011
We had a wonderful stay at The Mission Inn in Cape May. Susan and Ray are wonderful people and their service, hospitality and attention to detail are impeccable. Some of the most beautiful, creative and original rooms that we have ever stayed in. The food was inventive and healthy with a variety of fruits, juices and vegetables to compliment every breakfast. We would stay here again and are already planning another trip to The Mission Inn. Thanks again Susan and Ray, it was a pleasure meeting you! -Jon and Rebeka Mesker

We recently stood at the Mission Inn and were joined by our children and their new extended family in celebrationof our children's engagement. For my husband and my self this was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast. The accommodations were beautiful and Susan and Ray were wonderful....They made you feel like their family. We are planning our next get away!!
5 on June 27, 2011
We had the MOST fabulous experience at the Mission Inn in Cape May, NJ. The Mission Inn is a Bed & Breakfast that oozes with style and uncompromised luxury. It is located in a serene area just one block from the ocean. The accommodations were FIRST CLASS all the way. The team at the Inn works as fine machinery, leaving NOTHING to be desired. Sue and Ray are the owners and more, as husband and wife they complement each other perfectly. If you have a special day, or if there is a person you want to delight, Mission Inn is the answer.
5 on June 22, 2011
We always feel pampered fully by Susan and Ray, the inkeepers! The rooms are clean and luxurious, the delicious breakfast and late afternoon hors d'oeuvres are superb!! Then there is the ocean air and the quick one block walk to the beach and view of the ocean from the porch of the inn!!! I can't wait until our next visit!!!!
5 on June 15, 2011
We stayed in the San Luis Rey Room. It was perfect. We almost couldn't tell the bricks and scenes were real or faux. The breakfasts were delicious (coffee, tea, special juice, appetizer and meal). The nightly appetizers were plentiful and almost a light dinner (though Susan was available for restaurant recommendations/reservations). Everyone was friendly. Easy walk to the beach (Inn provided chairs, umbrellas, beach tags, bicycles). Excellent adult weekend in Cape May.
5 on June 15, 2011
We've stayed at over a dozen B&Bs in Cape May and the Mission Inn is definitely the best of the best. My wife and I constantly marveled at the attention to every detail - from the room to the gardens to the breakfasts and snacks - everything was truly outstanding. We've never stayed at the same place twice - up until now! I know we'll stay at the Mission Inn in Cape May again very soon. Bob & Carol Ann
5 on June 15, 2011
Our room was spacious and airy, and beautifully decorated. The california mission theme was a welcome change from the many typical victorian accomodations. The bathrooms have new fixtures and the over sized tub and shower were exactly what we hoped for. The owners could not have been more helpful. The evening we arrived, Susan helped us plan reservations for dinner for the four nights we were there, made helpful suggestions for fun things to do, and provided us with maps and keys to our bikes for the next day. (Bike's are provided which is a nice perk) The breakfasts were delicious, something totally different every morning, and presented beautifully. We would love to make a return visit!
4.6 on June 09, 2011
Susan and Ray are wonderful hosts, making you feel like you were visiting family. The superb breakfasts were always amazing. The rooms are absolutely gorgous. I stayed in the San Francisco room and it felt like I was sleeping under the clouds. It is close to the beach and walkable to town.This is my favorite Inn in Cape May and I have visited quite a few in recent years.
5 on June 05, 2011
Such a beautiful home and grounds, innkeepers (Susan and Ray) create a friendly and casual atmosphere and the food was the best - from the afternoon appetizers and beverages to the bottomless cookie jar and the gourmet breakfasts. My sister and I were celebrating our birthdays and I'm planning a trip to the Mission Inn with my husband in the fall. Linda
5 on June 03, 2011
We just spent Memorial Day Weekend at the Inn. What a fun and relaxing stay! The Inn was gorgeous and immaculate, and the Hosts, Susan and Ray, couldn't be warmer. Breakfast is delicious - the rooms are comfortable - the bathrooms are luxurious. One block to the beach - the Inn supplies chairs, umbrellas and towels. There are plenty of bicycles to use - and I recommend taking a ride at least once, it's a great way to get around. I can't wait to go back!
5 on June 03, 2011
Rooms are sensational! Comfy bed, luxury shower. InnKeepers - Raymond and Susan are the best ever. Breakfasts and evening snacks are always a wonderful surprise! Can't wait to go back.
4.6 on June 01, 2011
My husband and I stayed at The Mission Inn at Cape May last week, and wish we didn't have to leave. The innkeepers were extremely accomidating and pleasant without being bothersome. The breakfast was wonderful, and afternoon snacks were more like lunch! Delicious! The rooms were beautiful and non-victorian making this inn the most unique B&B in Cape May. The History the inn told with its unbelievable decor and comfortable rooms made our stay a vaca we will not forget.
5 on May 23, 2011
This is our fourth stay at the Inn, Celebrating our 7th anniverrsary there was great. We always feel at home with Susan, Ray and their associates. The only bad thing about the Inn, is having to leave. Looking forward to another relaxing stay, hopefully soon.

We stayed at the Mission Inn to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful stay. The Inn is simply magnificent, the photos and pictures simply cannot do it justice. The rooms are spacious, impeccably decorated, and immaculate. Susan was a wonderful hostess and a terrific cook, our breakfast was terrific! The Mission Inn provides everything you need for a memorable stay, from well maintained bikes and beach chairs, to games and high end bath products. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.
5 on May 22, 2011
We only stayed one night, but we will definitely be back!! Susan and Ray are the warmest and most hospitable hosts!! We felt like we were at home!! Next time we return, we will make our visit more than one night. Very relaxing, warm atosphere!!

We couldn't have been more delighted nor picked a better place to stay to enjoy a long weekend away to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Our honeymoon had been in Cozumel, Mexico. Our 10th anniversary had been as well. But that was before we had a son, who we were luckily able to leave in the trusted hands of good friends, but who we didn't want to be so far away from in case of any emergency. Cape May is beautiful, but what made it special was Suzanne and Ray, the hosts/owners of The Mission Inn. Suzanne was a wealth of information and concierge-oriented duties achieved with grace and kindness; Ray was a welcome reconteur and host, as well as groundskeeper. We met several couples similarly celebrating anniversaries, including birthdays, and felt as they suggested almost a part of Suzanne and Ray's family. If you're looking for a quiet, clean, relaxing base on Cape May from which to explore, we can't recommend The Mission Inn enough...
5 on May 17, 2011
Our stay at the Mission Inn in Cape May recently as the other stays over the years was wonderful! The rooms are tastefully decorated in various Mission styles with many amenities. No matter where you are in the Inn, the outside areas, the sitting areas, the dining areas are over the top. Susan and Ray are attentive and go out of their way to make your stay unforgetable. Also the food is great. Bill and Maryann Ziobrowski
5 on May 17, 2011
Treated my mom to an overnight for her birthday--and it was just perfect! Susan and her staff were amazing, attentive and kind. She knew just the right restaurants to suggest as well as new things to check out while in town. The hotel itself is just beautiful to look at--I could've wandered for hours just taking in the murals!
4.4 on May 16, 2011
From the moment we entered The Mission we knew we were somewhere special. The Mission is a beautiful experience from the handpainted murals and custom headboards to the gourmet dining. We relaxed and "cruised" our way through Cape May. We left saying we would return in a few months. No regrets whatsoever. The hosts went out of their way to make our stay memorable.
5 on May 11, 2011
This was our fourth stay at the Mission Inn (3rd since Susan & Ray became owners). Everything about this B & B is 1st rate---the ambiance, decor, hospitality and food. The chef, Leslie, has been with Susan & Ray since the beginning and she never ceases to amaze with her innovative and scrumptious breakfasts. Always a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Coming back to the Mission Inn is like revisiting good friends----can't wait to see them again soon!
5 on May 04, 2011
We have stayed at the Mission Inn 3 times so far, staying in 3 different rooms. We are ALWAYS so impressed with the rooms, the food, and of course, our hosts, Susan and Ray. They really go out of their way to make us feel comfortable, from recommending a restaurant for us, to making sure we have enough hors 'devours in the afternoons. We will come back to the Mission Inn time and time again.
5 on April 13, 2011
Ray and Susan, our host and hostess, were very hospitable and just couldn't do enough for us. Their goal was to make sure everything was perfect during our stay - and it was. The rooms (and the entire Inn) are very clean, quiet and comfortable. We highly recommend his lovely quaint Inn if you desire rest and relaxation. You won't be disappointed.
5 on April 05, 2011
This past weekend my husband and I stayed at The Mission Inn. This was our 2nd time at the Inn and our stay was even better than before. Our 1st time we stayed in the San Diego room which was beautiful. This time we chose the San Juan Bautista and it was spectacular. We were able to tour each room on this visit and all rooms have so much to offer. They are each unique in their own way. The Inn is so relaxing and is decorated beautifully. Susan and Raymond have thought of everything from the warm and friendly great room to the luxurious spa showers and jacuzzis along with fireplaces in some rooms. Susan's breakfast along with afternoon refreshments are delicious. They have thought of everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The Inn is so accomodating! Can't wait to go back for another visit!!
4.6 on March 15, 2011
We recently stayed at The Mission Inn and enjoyed it thoroughly. This was our first time at a b&b so we were not sure what to expect. Our host was wonderful and thought of every detail. There were homemade cookies when we arrived and a bottle of champagne in our room. Every room was immaculate and beautiful. Breakfast was superb and our host catered to our nutritional needs. The only downfall was that we were only able to stay there for 1 night. We can't wait to go back!
5 on February 23, 2011
I found the Mission Inn while searching for a special place to take my wife for her birthday. Little did I know how special a place it is! Ever since then, it is the only place we stay when we go to Cape May. The rooms are spectacular, the breakfast is gourmet (and delicious too), as well as the afternoon hors d'oeuvres. The Inn is also located within a block of the beach, and is within walking distance of most of Cape May's restaurants and shops But above all, Susan and Raymond are the most gracious hosts you can imagine. They are part of our family now, and we consider ourselves lucky to have found them, as well as their wonderful Inn. If you ever plan to stay in Cape May, be sure to book your room at the Mission Inn. You WON'T be disappointed!
5 on February 16, 2011
The Mission Inn in Cape May is tremendous both in the total charm of the rooms and common areas to the graciousness of the hosts. We highly recommend the Mission Inn.

The mission Inn is Great!!!! This was our second stay in about five years,and we were treated like we stay there weekly. I would recommend the Mission Inn to everyone. Ray and Susan are very gracious host they are AWESOME

My weekend trip and stay at the Mission Inn was a beautiful start of the holiday season. Susan and Ray invited us in as if we were family coming in to visit for the holidays. The rooms, food and guests was delightful. I will be definitely starting my 2011 Xmass holiday with them again. Book your time quickly though, their weekends do fill up.---TDN DEC8

We did not want our stay to end at the Mission Inn. The accomodations are first class and the hospitality and welcome by the innkeepers, Susan and Ray provide an experience of visiting "old friends". We plan to make the inn an annual event, especially during the busy Christmas season. We stayed at the inn a few days before Christmas and enjoyed the break from all the hustle and bustle that the season brings, while enjoying the "Victorian" Christmas that Cape May is known for. The memory of our visit will be with us for years to come. Thank you Susan and Ray.
4.0 on December 18, 2010
The Mission Inn is a wonderfully unique inn. It stands out from the majority of the B&B's/inns in Cape May, which are predominantly Victorian style. Innkeepers Susan & Ray are very welcoming, friendly, and most certainly accommodating. Each of the eight rooms boasts modern amenities, yet, is tastefully decorated to resemble the old California Missions. It is just steps away from the beach and a short bike ride to the town's center. I would definitely recommend The Mission Inn to anyone who is looking to stay in the area.
4.8 on December 14, 2010
Rooms were beautiful and spotless Food was delicious Owners are incredible people. Made you feel special and gave tips on where to go and what to see.
5 on December 13, 2010
I stayed at The Mission Inn this past weekend and have been raving about it since. The innkeepers are kind, thoughtful, and their hospitality is unmatched. It's clear they know the area very well, and made great recommendations. Their chef made spectacular breakfasts. The rooms are spacious, updated, clean, and comfortable.
5 on December 11, 2010
This inn is absolutely fabulous. The owner's are kind, loving and make you feel like family. Don't miss breakfast served everyday! It's one of the highlights of the day and I guarantee you have not had a breakfast like it. Kudos to Leslie. The design & decor is so beautiful it should be featured on HGTV. Stepping into my room gave me the feeling I first had when I saw "The Wizard of Oz" when Dorothy opens her door and sees Oz. The room was serene & peaceful, I felt like I was in a fantasy.
3.8 on December 08, 2010
Susan and Ray (innkeepers/owners) are so very hospitable! The Inn is very cozy and welcoming. I think the website does give you a good preview of what the Inn is like, but it is truly so much more! You will not be disappointed!!
5 on December 06, 2010
Our experience at the Mission Inn was nothing short of perfect. Hosts Susan and Ray sincerely made us feel like family. Accommodating is not a fair word - better would be harmonizing. The taste, aroma and feel of the inn make you just want to melt into the walls.The rooms, or should I say art-chambers, were one-of-a-kind lodgings more typical of an art gallery then a bedroom. Spacious, marvelously decorated and immaculately clean, the room itself is reason enough to stay at the inn. Breakfasts by Leslie should be chiseled into the dinning room walls! Unique and delightful, you won't find these masterpieces at your local diner. That goes for the afternoon appetizers as well. Great stuff! One block from the Atlantic Ocean and the beaches and a 5 minute drive to open-air mall in the center of Cape May gives you all you'll need whether you come in the summer or winter (Christmas season is a special treat). We have already booked for 2011. GO!
4.6 on November 16, 2010
Susan and Ray have created a warm, relaxed, and friendly atmosphere at The Mission Inn. The accomodations exceeded my expectations. The breakfast was outstanding. The location is a block in from the beach and very convienent to shopping and restaurants. The inn is beautiful but I think it is the hospitality of Susan, Ray and thier staff that make The Mission Inn a great choice for some R&R.
5 on November 09, 2010
My wife & I were reluctant to stay in a B & B but wanted to try The Mission Inn based on friends' recommendations. It was exceptional. I'm hoping my great recommendation won't make it difficult for me to get a reservation next time.
5 on November 03, 2010
The Mission Inn is a truly unique B&B in Cape May. There decor is wonderful with hand-painted pictures throughout the home. The room we stayed in (San Fransisco room) was beautifully modeled after the Missions in California. Along with the decor, the room offers lots of great amenities like a spa shower, fireplace, and jacuzzi. Its was a joy to come back from a brisk walk to a room were you can lay in the jacuzzi or by the fireplace. The breakfast was also great and the cranberry, coconut, oatmeal cookies were easily tops on my cookie list. Also, Susan and Ray went out of their way to accommodate any of the requests we have. Bottomline is that the Mission Inn is one of the best places to stay in Cape May, and because of the great room amenities, it can be enjoyed year round.
5 on October 11, 2010
The Mission Inn is the greatest place we have ever stayed. The owners' hospitality cannot be matched. They make us feel at home each time we visit. The food is out of this world and the rooms will please you. We cannot wait to get back there.
4.6 on September 26, 2010
This was a wonderful, relaxing weekend. The service was outstanding and the innkeepers were willing to share information, including historical info, about the area. One is able to meet other guests and get acquainted in a relaxed, home-like setting, but also enjoy the privacy of guest rooms with TV and DVD players. The food is delicious.
5 on September 13, 2010
Dear Susan and Raymond, Words cannot express the hospitality and warmth you show to all your guests. It was truly a blessed experience along with being amongst the finest bed and breakfast in NJ. It was the "personal" attention and kindness that truly won us over. The rooms were immaculate and the food was above and beyond our expectations. The cookies to go reminded me of leaving my family's home on the holidays. Thank you again - I know God's blessing upon you will overflow and be in abundance. Jackie and Marc
5 on August 23, 2010
A week at the beach! We both loved our stay at The Mission Inn, our second visit, planning the next time right now. Susan, Ray, Janet, Leslie and the rest of the competent and gracious staff enhanced our visit. The weather was hot, hot, but our room was cool and a refuge. We have only explored the tip of all Cape May has to offer. So much more to Cape May than is readily apparent, a fascinating history. The Mission Inn will be a good home base. Thanks so much. Liz and Dave
5 on August 16, 2010
We just returned from our stay at the Mission Inn - it was absolutely perfect!! Super clean, friendly and helpful staff, delicious food - the afternoon appetizers were my favorite - beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and every amenity you can think of and many you wouldn't have, but will enjoy. We never stayed at a B&B in Cape May before - only motels/motels with our family. This was our first full weekend away from our kids and we had so much fun. They have bikes you can use - we rode into town several times to shop, eat. The beach is one block away - they also have beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, and tags you can use. They even have an outside shower for when you come back. The kitchen has sodas, water, coffees and snacks - all very convenient. They really do think of everything and make it a joy from the minute you arrive. We will definitely stay at the Mission Inn again.
5 on August 12, 2010
Service excellent; hosts Susan & Ray make everyone feel like part of their family. Terrific location, 1 block from the beach. The Inn is designed as a California style mission & is unique in Cape May with a 100 year history. Room was large & airy, high ceilings, jacuzzi, etc. No wonder this was our 7th visit !!!!!!
5 on August 01, 2010
What a wonderful time and beautiful B&B!!! They thought of every little detail! Our room was great, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. We would highly recommend The Mission Inn and we look forward to going back there again soon. Susan and Ray were amazing hosts and gave us a great dinner recommendation.
5 on July 31, 2010
My wife and I chose this B&B because of the awesome reviews that it received. I questioned the fact that it had almost NO negative reviews, but after staying here I can say that the Positive reviews were totally correct, and the negatives were probably from people who need to complain about something anyway. We felt totally at home at the Mission Inn and HIGHLY recommend it to couples wanting to get away for a few days. We were spoiled (to put it lightly) and felt at home the minute we walked in the door. Only one word of caution for those staying in the San Juan Capistrano room, the bathroom is small (they did warn us of this before our stay, just THIS bathroom though from what I understand). I'm only 5'7" tall, if I were taller than say 5'10" it wouldn't work. Other than that, the room and the B&B were great, especially Leslie and the awesome variety and creativity at breakfast. Thanks Susan and Ray, you run a great B&B in Cape May.
4.6 on July 23, 2010
My husband and I have stayed at this inn twice over the past three years and will come back again. It is just the best of the best. The rooms are beautifully decorated and appointed, the breakfasts are so delicious, and the help and the owners just make it feel like your home away from home. Could not ask for more. You are on a quiet street not far from the beach or the downtown, yet not bothered by loud noises and traffic. It is a favorite getaway for us.
5 on July 14, 2010
We just started staying at B & B's 3 years ago. This is far and away the best yet. If they are all like this, I will never stay in hotel again. We felt welcome as soon as we set foot in the door and felt sad when we left. It is a rare feeling when you think you get your money's worth for anything but that is the feeling I got. Friendly, helpful, great room(s), and great food. The only regret I had was that I didn't find out Ray was into the Civil War until I was leaving--would have loved to talked to him about that. Go to this place--you won't regret it.
5 on June 19, 2010
My husband & I go the Mission Inn the third week in September for a week. This year we decided to add a long weekend in June. No matter when you go to the Inn, Susan & Raymond treat you like family. The breakfasts are always different and everything is made with fresh produce. When we are there we never want to leave. Susan & Raymond have thought of everything when renovating to make your stay a wonderful and memorable experience. Thank you. See you in September.

Our trip to the Mission Inn in Cape May, NJ changed our minds on what a Bed and Breakfast Inn can be. On past visits to other B&B’s we were not completely comfortable, feeling that we were staying in the house of someone we did not know. At the Mission Inn, the efforts of hosts Susan and Raymond made everyone feel like they were long time friends and any request or preference was enthusiastically acknowledged and addressed. Only 1 block from the beautiful sandy beaches, we found the rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was delicious and beautifully prepared, and the service was exceptional. This was the most enjoyable B&B experience that we have ever had and we hope to be able to return soon.
5 on May 16, 2010
We enjoyed the most fantastic 4 days and 3 nights we ever had in Cape May. The Mission Inn is the place to stay. The Innkeepers Susan and Ray are such gracious, warm, caring, detailed oriented hosts. They make you feel like family and nothing is to much trouble. The Mission Inn decor is stunning with the murals of different Missions from California and it is also very cozy and comfortable. The gourmet breakfast and the late afternoon fare was delicious. Can't wait to go back.
5 on May 14, 2010
Do not stay anywhere else! Sue and Ray are excellent hosts and treated us as family while feeling like a luxurious guest. All was wonderful.
5 on May 02, 2010
Susan and Ray will make you feel so at home and still so pampered. The food is outstanding. Breakfast and afternoon snacks were five star. The inn is absolutely stunning with hand paintings, amazing bathrooms, and wonderful location. If you want the most romantic weekend or any weekend to just get away and be well taken care of Susan and Ray are just the people to go see. We will absolutely be going there again.
5 on April 13, 2010
Loved the Mission Inn. A very warm and welcoming home-away-from-home. Ray and Susan made us feel like family. Beautiful rooms, gourmet breakfasts, very relaxing, and Cape May has so much to offer. You won't be disappointed. Mary

The perfect place,innkeepers,atmosphere for a getaway weekend! Susan & Ray made it the most perfect gift I could have given my daughter & son in law when they needed it the most. Comfortable room, with 2 person tub. Excellent food and atmosphere! They had a wonderful time and would find it hard to beat going to any other Bed & Breakfast after staying at the Mission Inn! Thank you Susan & Ray for making my children feel at home & get that relaxation I wanted so much for them!
4.8 on December 15, 2009
My husband and I have been visiting Cape May for over 10 years. Some years we have visited twice within the year. We have stayed in many different places in this wonderful city at different times of the year. Everytime we return to the Mission we are treated just like we are part of the family. Susan and Ray are very special Innkeepers.
5 on December 08, 2009
I had never been to Cape May and wanted to find a nice relaxing Bed & Breakfast to unwind. The Mission Inn more than exceeded my expectations! Even though the weather was not ideal during our stay, my boyfriend and I had a wonderful, relaxing time. The Inn is beautifully decorated and the hosts made you feel very welcome – we had never met them before, but felt that after a few minutes, they were old friends! Food was outstanding and we will definitely return for another visit as soon as we can!
4.6 on October 26, 2009
The Mission Inn is a destination site. Very gracious hosts and attention to details lacking in even the best inns we have visited. The eight jetted shower was an incredible bonus. A definite return.
5 on September 28, 2009
To be thoroughly spoiled, catered to and comforted. A lovely visit - and we're going back in 2 weeks (having visited at least a dozen times). Wonderful innkeepers and staff, delicious food, cozy & comfortable bed, great bubbly jacuzzi. Only a few steps to the beach, for great beachwalking & shells in the off-season. All our dinner reservations were made, yummy afternoon treats. Susan's cookies are a delight!
5 on September 27, 2009
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at The Mission Inn. From the moment we walked inside, Susan and Raymond made us feel at home. The Inn is decorated tastefully, and murals relating to California Missions are fantastic. The room, bike rides and just sitting on the porch enjoying the ocean view. Breakfasts were delicious. It's just a great place to get away and share it to our friends - that's exactly what we are going to do next time. Nana and Mike More from tripadvisor.com »

The Mission Inn is a welcome and refreshing option to Cape May's Victorian B&B's. We have stayed at a number of them but since we first stayed at the Mission Inn a few years ago, we are "hooked". The innkeepers, Raymond and Susan, can't do enough for you, as well as their small yet attentive staff. The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable and quiet, and the Inn itself is a perfect place to find a relaxing spot to "nest". It's like a home away from home. The breakfasts and afternoon snacks are gourmet!
5 on September 16, 2009
My husband and I loved the Mission Inn. It was our first visit to a B & B, a;nd everything exceeded our expectations. Beautiful accommodations and pleasant staff. We would definitely visit again.

It was not only the peaceful setting of this California themed B&B that made our visit special, but it really was all the attention to details and the personal touches that the innkeeper, Susan, provided that made this visit go above and beyond any other B&B I've ever visited. I wanted to move in. The breakfast in the morning was healthy and fresh. Just one block from the beach. Beautiful environment. We will definitely return there in the future for a relaxing getaway.

Wonderful room, very clean and the hosts are very detail oriented. They thought of just about everything you might need. Everywhere you look is a neat detail that really warms up the Inn.
4.8 on August 24, 2009
We have found a favorite place to visit. We plan on returning time and time again. The innkeepers do everything in their power to make your stay as perfect as possible. Everything you can possibly need is provided from luxurious beach towels, chairs, tags, bicycles, scrumptious afternoon snacks, and fresh fruit. The breakfasts are fabulous!!!!!!

Celebrating our 40th anniversary couldn't have been nicer. 5 stars on everything. What wonderful hosts Susan & Ray are. We will definitely come back.

The Mission Inn is a uniquely decorated B&B that provides attention to every detail. The entire Inn is classy, but comfortable, lovely gardens, delicious food & beautiful, artistic decor throughout, made our stay perfect. The hosts, Susan & Raymond, were delightful.

Part of the allure of a Bed and Breakfast is the intersection between your private fantasy of home and your personal concept of an earthly paradise. That's why The Mission Inn is the place we return to time and again. It's graced with a tranquil back patio with its own proverbial trumpet vine and fig tree, has a jar always brimming with fresh oatmeal cranberry cookies, and (in our favorite room) has a luxury shower with eight spray jets and a rainfall shower head. When we trailed back from the hot beach to find ginger peach soup and bowls chilling in the freezer, we knew we were in Eden by the Atlantic. The airy, pleasing decor is a refreshing spin on California coastal missions, the food is incredibly creative, fresh, and tasty, and Susan and Raymond sparkle with warmth and joy in what they do. Go see for yourself. Enjoy. Just leave me a cookie or two, please.

My husband and I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mission Inn in July 09. The food was exceptionally good and the service was stellar as well. One of the best things about this Bed & Breakfast is the very unique and beautiful decor of the rooms. The gorgeous spanish-style detail adds such a special feeling to each location of the house. The Innkeepers are ABSOLUTELY wonderful, but the food was just delightful! We really enjoyed ourselves-especially staying in the room with the TV in the bathroom. I always wanted to sit in the tub and watch SCRUBS. HA! What a fantasic little trip. It will be nice to go back again.

The Mission Inn is a refreshing getaway one block from the ocean in quaint Cape May. The CA mission decor, fauxpainting and tasteful accommodations are only surpassed by the gourmet breakfasts and attentive staff.
5 on July 30, 2009
We found something above & beyond any expectation. Absolutely perfect. Peace & love & God all present here!
5 on July 30, 2009
Our family gave us a gift certificate for our 50th anniversary at the Mission Inn. It was our first stay at a B&B and we enjoyed the personal touch that Susan & Raymond provide. The rooms, food & service were great. We will return!
5 on July 24, 2009
My daughter and I had a wonderful vacation at The Mission Inn. We loved being so close to the beach. Our room and the Inn were beautiful. The food was delicious and very fresh. The service was exceptional. We loved Cape May and The Mission Inn and hope to return one day soon.

A beautiful home away from home! The Mission Inn is outstanding, from the service, to the rooms and most importantly, the innkeepers! You can't ask for more, Susan and Raymond make you feel at home the minute you arrive, until the minute you leave! You are treated like royalty, the inn is impeccably clean, designed and is missing one thing. The breakfast is great, the service..oh I just can't say enough. I will only go back to the Mission Inn, my home away from home to see my new friends, Susan and Raymond. I wish them all the best since they certainly deserve the best for all they do for they guests! See you soon, thank you Susan and Raymond,
4.6 on July 15, 2009
Susan and Ray have created a welcoming retreat. every detail is perfect from comfy beds to bikes and beach chairs, to delicious snacks and breakfast. Wonderful in every way!
5 on July 09, 2009
We had a wonderful time at the Inn. Susan and Ray were like old friends who made us comfortable and welcomed. The breakfasts were a treat every morning. The rooms were amazing. We look forward to a return visit!
4.2 on July 08, 2009
We were so welcomed and treated with utmost kindness. Susan goes out of her way to make everyone feel at home. Leslie made the most incredible breakfasts and there were so many juice choices! After returning from the beach we were greeted by Janet and served afternoon beverages and hors'doeuvres that were so enjoyable as well as talking with the different couples saying there! The amenities could not be any better. We stayed in the San Francisco de Asis and just loved this beautiful room. This was a special treat to celebrate my husband's birthday and he just loved it. We are bicycle riders and loved being away from all the crouds of people where all other Bed and Breakfasts are generally located. This is only one block to the beach. We loved the beach chairs that were provided and ordered them on-line when we came home. Thank you Susan!
5 on July 05, 2009
The best B&B I ever visited. Clean, luxurious, delicious and understatedly elegant service. What a find! Free bikes, wifi, flatscreen, beach towels and chairs, snacks, drinks and wine. You must visit.
5 on June 29, 2009
We stayed at the Santa Clara for one night. We wished we could stay forever, it was awesome! The theme of the inn is genius. They served us with the utmost attention to detail, and were like friends to us when we left. Everyone should go there.
5 on June 23, 2009
Innkeepers Susan and Ray have an outstanding establishement. 1st Class all the way.
4.8 on June 22, 2009
My husband and I try to get away once a year, just for some alone time. Having four kids ages 5-18 doesn't leave much time for that at home. Ray and Susan are wonderful. They make you feel like family and old friends all at the same time. We have been to the Inn twice and we can't wait to return. Their hospitality is top notch, their staff is wonderful and gracious. The breakfast they serve is out of this world. The afternoon appetizers will spoil and delight you. They truly take care of the needs of their guests and once you've been here, you'll find it hard to stay anywhere else!
5 on June 11, 2009
Beginning with warm greeting from our hosts, to outstanding accommodations, our comfort level was at the top! If you're looking for a quiet sea-side experience, this is the place for you!
4.6 on June 09, 2009
After hours of searching online, The Mission inn truly was exactly what we were looking for in a place to stay in Cape May. Beautiful California inspired rooms, 2 person tub, fireplace. The inn was relaxing and extremely well kept. Susan and Roy's fine attention to detail far surpassed any hotel experience!
5 on June 08, 2009
5-years ago my wife and I stayed at the Mission Inn at Cape May, NJ. We both left being totally impressed. Good firends of ours asked for a recommendation and we recommended the Mission. Asked if we and another couple would like to go along. Well it is hard to believe that you could improve on perfection, but that was the case with the Mission. When we returned home we sat around discussing the weekend trip and everyone felt exactly the same way - it was awesome! Susan and Ray, the Inn owners are just great. Feel like I've known them for many years. I would never hesitate to recommend the Mission.
5 on May 19, 2009
Three times a charm. This was our third visit to the Mission Inn, and once again it exceeded our expectations. Susan, Raymond and their staff are the ultimate hosts. I've been going to Cape May since I was a child, and have stayed in quite a few places in Cape May. Nothing compares to the Mission. Bright , airy, clean with no clutter is the best way I can describe it. Our decision has been, from now on whenever we plan a trip to Cape May, this is our home away from home. Where else do they welcome you and bid you farewell with hugs! John and Mari, Wilmington, DE
5 on May 19, 2009
My stay was unbelievably wonderful! Susan and Ray were amazing hosts! They were welcoming and warm, and the inn was beyond words- It was like walking into a fairy tale!
4.6 on May 11, 2009
The Mission Inn was an excellent bed and breakfast with a modern touch and character to every room, creatively tasty breakfast, wonderfully filling afternoon snacks and family friendly hosts that make this place a very unique experience. I would highly recommend the Mission Inn for couples, individuals or a small group to retreat and get away with the comfort of home. This was one of the best bed and breakfast experiences I had. It is truly a must go place particularly if you live in the DE, NJ, PHL, MD, and NY areas. I would definitely go again!
4.4 on May 06, 2009
My husband and I just visited The Mission Inn for the first time this past weekend. While celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary, we were also getting away for some quiet time before our second child is born in July. The Mission Inn was beautiful, the food (both breakfast and afternoon snacks) were wonderful, and we felt like we were at home all weekend. Susan and Ray were wonderful hosts and went above and beyond what was expected. If ever in Cape May, I would highly recommend staying here as you will not be disappointed.
4.8 on May 03, 2009
Susan and Raymond will welcome you with their hearts and they will make sure you have a wonderful experience. They go above and beyond to meet your needs. Great place to go. Will definetelly go back in the future.

The Mission Inn is the place to stay in Cape May. My wife and I "got away" at the Mission Inn in Cape May during the last week in April. You would never know that it was midweek or preseason. There was not a single detail missed. Susan was fantastic! Her establishment was impeccable. It is a clean, well done Mexican themed mini resort. No amenity was missed. A classy environment complete with multiple fire places, up to date electronics, nice homey rooms, and wonderful bathrooms and showers. Hors d'oeuvres, wine, port, cookies, fruit... You name it. They didn’t miss a beat. We were greeted on arrival as if Susan had known us for years and we were old friends. A full tour was given so that instant comfort was established. We were shown to our room, which was fantastic. We freshened up in their one of a kind state of the art dual head showers. We then stepped out to a delicious dinner at Peter Shields Inn up the road. Stopped by a club for a drink then headed back to our room for a night cap and a movie. We wrapped up our evening with some good sleep on a firm comfortable king size bed with a nice ocean breeze though the multiple windows. Woke up in the morning and came down to hot coffee, ice cold juice, a newspaper and a fantastic 3 course authentic Mexican breakfast, followed up with some great conversation. I will return to The Mission Inn in the future and I would not hesitate a firm recommendation to anyone I know. I was very impressed. 5 Star

My wife and I highly recommend The Mission Inn B&B. Susan and Ray are outstanding hosts that go above and beyond to make sure your stay in their inn is a memorable one. The breakfast that is included with your stay is amazing and the location is near perfect. It is only 1 block from the ocean and about a 15 minutes walk to historic Cape May downtown. We will be visiting again soon. Thanks Ray and Susan.
5 on April 14, 2009
We were here in Dec.08 and enjoyed it so much we came back for a second time.Even though it is a two hundred mile drive it is well worth it.The room and overall building is fantastic.The breakfasts are better than five star and the afternoon snacks were always exceptional and unexpectedly different each day.Sue and Ray are great hosts.We will be back again in Dec.09. Evie & Russ
4.8 on April 13, 2009
We stayed several days over a Labor Day weekend and had an amazing time. Susan and Ray were so welcoming, helpful and yet also gave us plenty of space. The food was to die for and there was never a dull moment with available bikes, dvds, books and beach gear. Everything you need is here and the beach is only one short block away.
4.8 on March 27, 2009
An extraordinarily decorated B&B with the finest amenities (luxury shower, DVD, fireplace), gourmet breakfast and Hors D Oeuvres, with delightfully charming hosts. This is the Only place I'd consider staying in when I come to Camp May!

I have stayed in several B&Bs in Cape May many times in the past ten years all who tout in their advertisements of their warmth and hospitality during your stay.My girlfriend and myself stayed in the Mission Inn recently for the first time.The stay was fantastic.The breakfasts,rooms and attitude of Sue and Ray were the best I have seen.Rather than the aloof and cold atmosphere I have expierenced in the other B&Bs I felt like I was visiting with good friends at the Mission Inn.We live two hundred miles away but we will be back many more times including this spring.I would like to thank Sue and Ray for a very delightful stay.
5 on December 20, 2008
Stayed one night, off season, week night, but have stayed at many B&B's up and down the coast. This clearly ranks among my favorites. The food was the best, absolutely outstanding. Susan was just a pleasure to speak with. The showers are awesome. A must stay!
5 on December 15, 2008
We went to the Mission Inn with a group of lifelong friends for a relaxing, fun preChristmas weekend. This is, by far, the best B&B we've visited in Cape May. Susan and Ray welcomed us and our friends as family. The large comfortable common room was a cozy and warm gathering place for our group.The accomodations were perfect. Leslie's breakfasts were beyond our expectations and Cathy's afternoon treats were just what we wanted as we relaxed after a busy day of shopping and got ready for an evening tour. You will not be disappointed if you stay at the Mission Inn. We will definitely return for a summer getaway.

Breathless!!! The inn to be every year. great hospitality, looking forward to return!

Made believers of us that B&B's are the way to vacation- from the food, to the owners, to the fantastic rooms!
4.8 on October 01, 2008
The Mission Inn and it's keeper Susan, far exceeded our expectations. As new empty-nesters we were due for some pampering and relaxation after getting our girls off to college. Susan has not left out a thing at the Mission Inn. Exceptional gourmet (and healthy) breakfasts and afternoon appetizers, beautiful unique rooms,gorgeous gardens, and lots of personalized attention,makes this Inn a must. Cape May in the fall was a peaceful get away from life's usual hectic pace.
5 on September 02, 2008
The Mission Inn is the only place that my husband and I will stay in Cape May. Susan and Raymond have thought of everything with their beautiful B&B and even have a "Babymooner" program for expectant couples such as ourselves. We have not met more warm and inviting people and look forward to a return trip this Fall. This is an absolute must if you visit Cape May.
5 on June 16, 2008
My husband and I like to vacation in Cape May every summer. Since discovering Susan and Ray's Mission Inn, this has become our favorite Bed & Breakfast. This is the place to which we return each year. We love the bright, warm atmosphere of this beautiful Inn. Susan and Ray have thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. The breakfasts and afternoon hors d' oeuvres are wonderful. The rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean, and comfortable. Susan and Ray are fantastic and always make you feel so welcome. They make each visit interesting by sharing information about new additions (stores, restaurants, etc.) to the town and the current happenings in Cape May. We always look forward to a return visit to The Mission Inn!
5 on May 27, 2008
The Mission Inn is an amazing place to stay. The rooms are styled after the missions in California and the paintings make it all seem to come to life. The Spa tubs are great to relax in and the Showers will leave no one cold no matter where your standing. Susan took great care of us and made our stay very special. The breakfast was beautiful to see and taskted great. I really liked the fruit plate. Everyone that saw the rooms in my family plans to make the Mission Inn part of a future vacation!!!
5 on May 18, 2008
Our sixth visit in six months, and we can't wait to return. Thanks, Susan and Ray, for creating a marvelous, comfy, welcoming, luxurious, and happy place. A great sleep, wonderful food, friendliest hosts, luxury bath. Top notch in every way!

5 on April 14, 2008
My husband and I love The Mission Inn. Sue and Ray are wonderful, caring hosts. They have thought of every little detail, whether it's breakfast, the beautiful room, the beach equipment, etc. We go back every other year (but wish I could afford every year!) We have stayed at many other B&B's in Cape May and they do not compare!
5 on April 07, 2008
The Mission Inn is wonderful! I went with my boyfriend for his birthday and we had a great time. The inn is beautiful, and Susan and Ray are fantastic, warm, and caring people. Their attention to detail was evident everywhere; they clearly put a lot of thought and effort into making this inn so fabulous. We stayed in the San Juan Bautista room which was beautiful. Susan and Ray thought of everything you could possibly want in a room-large TV in both the main room and bathroom, fireplace, chocolates by the bed, wine glasses next to the huge jet-air tub, little flower petels in the tub, and bath salts and gel on the side. Everything was so luxurious!! We really felt pampered! In terms of the food-it was delicious! In the afternoon they had some yummy snacks including corn dip, crackers, artichoke dip, vegetables, chocolate covered strawberries, homemade cookies, wine, and iced-tea. It was a nice time for us to relax and get to the know the other guests a little bit. Everyone was so friendly that it was easy to feel at home. For breakfast we started off with a variety of fresh fruit, which was great. Then we got a ham and cheese panini with pesto-asparagus on the side. A banana-chocolate muffin completed the meal-delicious! Susan and Ray were so thoughtful; they knew that we were there to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, so they put a candle in his cupcake as a special touch! We loved the Mission Inn and would strongly recommend it for anyone who would like a nice, relaxing, and luxurious time away from home. We'd definitely stay there again!
5 on February 20, 2008
My husband stayed for the weekend and it was our first trip to Cape May. We stayed in the San Francisco room and it was AMAZING! Susan and Ray have thought of everything. The rooms was absolutely clean, neat and everything was provided. Susan and Ray are so warm and friendly and made us feel like we were indeed at home. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious! They have a gourmet chef there and she is wonderful! We will be sure to come back and stay the Mission Inn again!! It's worth every penny!

The Mission Inn offered us our romantic weekend. The owners Sue and Ryan were warm, inviting and the inn had all the comforts of home. Gourmet hordoerves were served in the afternoon accompanied by teas, coffee and wine. Our room was large, comfortable and clean as whistle. The gourmet breakfast was outstanding. We also enjoyed riding bikes to the lighthouse, visting the local shops, long walks to watch the sunset and dinner at the many outstanding restaurants. I would highly recommend the Mission Inn, Sue and Ray made us feel most welcome.

The mission inn is a wonderfully warm and welcoming home that you will not want to leave, and will want to return to as your special place in cape may.
5 on September 13, 2007
From the moment you arrive the owners make you feel right at home. Everything is at your fingertips, from toiletries to wonderful bicycles to tour the town and beach. Fabulous beach just one block away. Breakfast was an absolute treat each and everyday morning served on a beautiful porch where you feel the ocean breeze. Afternoon hor'd were different each day serve w/homemade lemonade, ice tea or wine which was served in beautiful handpainted wine goblets. The homemade oatmeal cranberry cookies and blonde brownies were awesome! A fabulous location near enough to town but far away enough to be removed from the hustle and bustle of a resort - easy to walk to whatever you need and return to your hideaway - totally quiet in the evenings - a must visit for a first time or seasoned B&Ber!!! Give Susan and Ray our best from Connecticut !!!!
4.2 on April 17, 2007
The Mission Inn innkeepers were warm and gracious folks. Great detail went in to decorating each guest room and common area and it is truly a pleasure to experience the artistry and beauty of the Inn. Our one discomfort was when our "neighbors" were using their whirlpool tub at all hours of the night--unfortunately the walls are thin and each time their tub was turned on our whole room rumbled from the powerful sound. Otherwise, we were genuinely pleased by the very clean and comfortable rooms--bed size and comfort, linens, bathroom accommodations, toiletries, outdoor views, natural lighting, storage, and warm atmosphere of the spacious common areas. We also were completely relaxed while reading and snacking in those common areas, too. Often it's easy to stay only in your individual room, but at the Mission Inn the comforts truly extend to every room in the house.
We are most appreciative of our guests comments. Our goal is to provide the utmost comfort for you. A previous guest had brought to our attention the late night use of our Jet Air Tubs. In the Fall of 2006 we implemented a time restriction for the use of these tubs of which all have graciously complied with. Thanks to folks such as yourself, having made us aware of ways in which we can better serve our guests, we are able to accomplish our goal of providing a casual elegant environment for all of you.

Innkeepers are over the top in hospitality, very inviting, sometimes too much. Thoughtful appointments in the room and bathroom. The decor is also a bit over the top. Bed was uncomfortable.
