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.

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

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

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.

Great B&B!

We just stayed at Captain Mey's Inn on July 24. The owner Rita was very friendly and welcoming. The inn is so comfortable and spotless. Our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. Every day it was cleaned to perfection. I loved the freshly baked muffins at the continental breakfast. The breakfast was a little more informal than some B&B's but that suited our vacation style. It was no less elegant. We will definitely return on our next trip to Cape May.

Our Stay 7/20-21

4.2 on July 23, 2014

We just stayed at the Captain Meys B&B for the 4th time. We were greeted by the Innkeeper Rita.Our Room (Peter Stuyvesant) was not yet ready but we were early. Rita invited us to use all the facilities and leave our bags there. There is a large bathroom with shower as well as an outside shower for use after the beach. Snacks, juices and hot beverages are available all of the time. We walked for a while then returned to room. It was clean and comfortable as always. This is not a typical B&B so there is not a formal sit down breakfast. In the morning (9:00) there are bagels, fresh baked muffins, coffee and juice everything that makes a great continental breakfast. The dining room is set up with placemats and silverware and is a very comfortable area to chat with other guests. This B&B offers everything at a very affordable price.Hopefully we will get back in August for another enjoyable stay. Thanks to Rita and the wonderful staff. Frank and Donna

Can't wait to return!

Our second visit to Captain Mey's, and just as enjoyable as the first. Lovely rooms, tasty breakfast, friendly staff. Love that you get full use of the downstairs after checkout, allowing a quick shower after going to the beach with their chairs and towels, sit on the porch and people watch, or grab a cup of coffee or tea. You are welcome until you are ready to head home. Great location, near beach and Washington Street Mall. We will be back. Thanks for a lovely holiday! Steve and Debbie

Three lovely October days at Captain Mey's

3.6 on October 12, 2012

We've been to Cape May many times over the years and this was our first stay at Captain Mey's. It is a beautiful B&B in an outstanding location - 1 block to the Washington Mall shopping area, 2 blocks to the beach - literally in the center of it all. The large porch has enough tables and chairs to accomodate 4 or 5 couples for breakfast, relaxing, or just people watching. The foyer, parlor, and dining room on the first floor are nicely decorated and very inviting. We stayed in the Willem the Silent room on the 2nd floor. It was very comfortable but a bit small, particularly the bathroom and stall shower. Rita was an extremely gracious and helpful host. The breakfast is more than adequate but is a serve yourself continental style, not a sit-down, hot breakfast like some other B&Bs. This was fine as it doesn't tie you to a specific seating time and there was a large variety of offerings. All in all it was a great 3 days in celebration of our anniversary.

Lovely Place Good Location
