Captain Mey's Bed & Breakfast

202 Ocean Street , Cape May, NJ 08204 USA (Show map)


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.

Captain Mey's B&B

2.6 on August 26, 2015

the facility is well kept. Upon arrival there was no one to greet us and the door was locked. The phone number listed did not respond because the mailbox was full. When we did finally did check in, again no one was on site. When we checked out, again no one present. We just dropped our key in the small basket alongside the front door. Breakfast was just ok. No fruit beyond a couple of bananas. Nothing warm was available beyond what was available to toast.

Best romantic and relaxing time!

Loved every inch of this Victorian all the modern necessities of 2015. We will be back next year. Thank you for such a nice place to stay :).

Charming Inn Wonderful Location!

We love to stay there when we are in town. The rooms are clean and the wrap around porch is so relaxing! It's the perfect location close to everything! We love the private parking too. It makes things so convenient. We have stayed there 3 times already and are heading back in October!

Lovely stay

4.6 on August 15, 2015

This is our second stay at Capt. Mey's, and it was lovely. The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable. Bed was comfortable and towels, were plentiful and thick. The staff was quiet, but could not have been more helpful! The room prices were comparable or lower than other local B&Bs. The location is so convenient to everything that you really don't have to move your vehicle if you so choose. (Private parking on site as well, another bonus!). This time, breakfast was not up to B&B standards, nothing warm, home made or home baked, and there is no afternoon tea, but this is somewhat offset by a Keurig, yogurts, cold cereal and ice 24/7. Once we adjusted to this, it was ok with us. We also never had the opportunity in our five day stay to meet the innkeeper, as she does not live on the premises. I don't believe anyone but the guests are there overnight. We would very gladly come to stay again. You will not be disappointed in your Cape May visit with a stay at Captain Mey's!

Charming Inn Perfect Location!

We love staying at Captain Meys Inn because of the location.Its right in the heart of everything! Plus the parking lot is great! We just leave our car and walk every where. We have stayed there several times and always enjoy it. The rooms are always neat and clean and we love the big wrap around porch which is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine or people watching or reading . The breakfast is nothing fancy but since we are not big breakfast eaters it works for us. I think all in all this B&B is a good value!

Awesome B&B

4.2 on May 27, 2015

This was our second visit to Captain Mey's B&B and we'll be back again. The rooms are lovely, and the porch offers a relaxing spot. We appreciate the Keurig & availability of tea & coffee throughout the day. The innkeeper is like a "best friend", making us feel at home, and goes above & beyond!

Enjoyable stay at Captain Mey's Inn

We loved meeting Esther, it was her first day on the job, and she was really sweet and accomodating to our every need or question. We hope to see her when we return for our next visit. There were a few minor inconveniences in the room which Esther took care of immediately-----toilet flowing over in the bathroom, and we couldn't shut the window, it was jammed. However, being home-owners ourselves, these things didn't really bother us, as we know it was early in the season, and most of the places weren't set up like they would be for summer. The home is absolutely gorgeous, tastefully decorated, and we look forward to returning.

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.
