About

Captain Mey's Inn is centrally located in the Primary Historic District in Cape May. Only steps from the Washington Street Mall shopping. This B&B is within walking distance to excellent local restaurants, attractions, and trolleys. Only two short blocks to the beach and On-site parking identifies this B&B as prime location. At Captain Mey's Inn, you will experience a warm and welcoming atmosphere which the Dutch call "Gezellig". The Dutch heritage is truly evident. You will see Persian rugs on the table tops, a Delft Blue China collection and authentic European antiques throughout. Marvel at the chestnut oak Eastlake paneling in the dining room, leaded and original stained glass windows throughout the house and restored fireplace with its intricately carved mantel.

Cold carb breakfast at Captain Meys

3.0 on October 31, 2014

The owners were very friendly. The location is so close to Washington st. Mall. The on site parking is a great benefit. The only thing that didn't meet our expectations were the cold breakfast of carbs: bread, english muffins, store bag bagels and cold hard boiled eggs. We were very disappointed about the breakfast because that's one of the joys of staying at a bed & breakfast. A home made, hot breakfast is what we are use to for a breakfast at a B&B. We ended up eating out for breakfast as well and don't think we will choose this location again as a result.


Great price & location

3.8 on October 11, 2014

You can't beat the price and location. Our room was clean and had a huge attached bathroom which was clean as well. Love the porch and having access to the Keurig machine whenever we wanted coffee. Rita was very welcoming. Only negative was the fact that we are early birds and thought the breakfast serving time was on the late side. Seems like most of the guests were waiting around for it too and the bagels we had were not worth the wait. Would stay here again.


Highly recommended.

Visited for a few days and the location, room and service were just great


Weekend Away

4.4 on October 06, 2014

We really enjoyed our long weekend away at Captain Mey's. The room, as well as the overall inn, was spotless. We enjoyed the casual breakfast that we could take outside on the porch. It's close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. Park your car when you get there and you don't have to use it again until you leave. Love being able to use the facilities after check-out. The outdoor shower and bathroom and shower on the first floor are accessible even after dropping off your key. After comparing prices, this inn is definitely budget-friendly. We'd definitely return.


Birthday Get Away

3.4 on October 06, 2014

We have been to Cape May many times, but it was our first stay at Capt Mey's. Self check in was okay, but would have preferred some interaction with someone other than by phone. Breakfast was sufficient. However, we are used to home made type breakfast from our past experiences in other B & B's. We never saw Rita the innkeeper during our stay. The 2 staff members we saw were polite. There again, from past experiences, we had more interactions with the staff of the other B & B's. We probably would stay again. Location and price were great. Our room was fine.


Relaxing

4.6 on September 20, 2014

My wife and I stayed in Captain Mey's room with a private door. The porch is very relaxing to watch life go by and the shopping is around the corner, the beach and restaurants all close. Rita is very nice and we did enjoy the informal breakfast as this fit our vacation sked. Will def return.


Clean and tidy but not wonderful

2.2 on September 20, 2014

Our room was clean and tidy but our bathroom was completely separate which we did not expect. In the morning there was no hot water in the shower or sink. Do -it-yourself breakfast was not what we expected with grocery store bagels that were none too fresh. The staff was helpful and pleasant but the owners not on site. All in all, definitely not the B&B experience I have been used to. We won't be back.


Lovely antique atmosphere, lacking breakfast

3.2 on August 26, 2014

My girlfriend and I had a mid-week getaway at Captain Mey's. The house and room were lovely, and the staff were very friendly. The house had a wonderful old feel and history to it, and the room was very clean. We were however disappointed by breakfast. It being a "bed and breakfast," we expected more breakfast food staples, like scrambled eggs, fruit and a meat of some kind. The breakfast consisted of sliced bread, muffins, bagels, hard boiled eggs, and small boxed cereal. Further, the provided milk decanter was empty by the time we arrived, and we were nearly done with everything else before we found someone who could get us more; a wait of at least 15 minutes. We both felt the breakfast offering was disappointing, but possibly the specifics of what would be offered were advertised somewhere and we simply missed it.


A Long Weekend Getaway

4.2 on August 08, 2014

This was our first B&B experience and my wife and I were very pleased! This B&B is in a great location and a great value for a peak season. All the staff at Captain Mey's were very hospitable to make our stay a pleasant one. While the breakfast selection was varied, a few more warm meal options would have been nice choice. Nonetheless, I would stay at Captain Mey's in a heartbeat on my next visit.


Friendly and Welcoming

4.4 on August 05, 2014

A lovely Victorian Inn that makes you feel that you have taken a little step back in time, with availability to all modern necessities. A very friendly, clean and relaxing Inn; not to mention easy access to the beach and shopping. Thank you Rita for a wonderful time! We can't wait to return.
