"Has potential, needs attention"
I've stayed in lots of B&Bs around the world. This one "has potential" but is not quite there yet. I believe it has new owners, who would be well advised to lighten and brighten the rooms--bath mat in my room was faded and frayed, and decorating was dark and depressing. Breakfast was about the level you would expect at a Motel 6, and the presence (or should I say absence) of staff left a great deal to be desired. I had to request ice each time, which discourages you from enjoying one of the basic amenities at the beach. There was none of the specialized advice you expect in a B&B owned by locals,--I think the owners are not locals, which explains a lot. One of the most frustrating aspects was that they never answer their phone and drive everything to their website--very annoying when what you want is not a reservation (you have one) but information! Overall, this place has unrealized potential. In a year it will either be better, or closed.

"Cute and clean B&B in a great location!"
Cute B&B in a wondeful location in Cape May. Room and common areas were spotless and the managment was available and attentive but not in your face. We'd stay again.

"GREAT location!"
This cute B&B is in a great location. It is 1/2 block from prime shopping plaza and 2 blocks to the beach and just a short walk to many other restaurants and shopping. The house is cute, not fancy or spacious. Breakfast was a continental breakfast, nothing fancy but suitable. I did not see the innkeeper at all while there so I can't comment on that.

"Loved the location. No need to move your car."
Always enjoyed staying at Captain Mey's. The only disappointing aspect was the continental breakfast. We missed the Home cooked breakfast and the afternoon tea. Will look into staying at another Bed and Breakfast for these amenities.

Captain Mey's Inn is a comfortable, quiet, and peaceful place to stay in Cape May. It's convenient to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We went after Labor Day so the crowds were down and had a marvelous time.

"Not worth the $"
Owner was very nice once she let us in. We stood on the porch with our bags in 90 degree weather for 10 minutes watching her through the window speaking to another guest while she looked at us and held up her index finger gesturing to us to wait for her. Very rude. When the other guest finally saw we were hot and getting impatient, they finally told the owner to let us in. She was nice and explained about the B & B and took us to our room. That was the last we ever saw of her. The AC in the room was insuficient and there were 2 winter blankets on the bed. No light weight blankets. The sheets on our queen bed were pilled and sooo uncomfortable on my skin. The "fitted" sheet came off the corners on both sides within 10 minutes of getting into bed so we were sleeping on scratchy pilled crinkled up sheets...basically sleeping half on the sheet pile and half on the waterproof mattress cover. The pillows were so overstuffed and hard that they were useless...unless you wanted to commit to a stiff neck for 4 days. And did I mention how hot it was?!? My final complaint was the breakfast. A plate of bagels, english muffins and a bowl of hard boiled eggs left on the table with no "staff" anywhere in sight. Seriously?!? I have never stayed in a B&B that didn't make you a really nice cooked breakfast. It was way worse than any chain hotel's cont. breakfast. Did I really pay $160 for this? I recommend you stay at a Holiday Inn Express over the Captain Mey's B&B anyday.

"Close to shopping street"
Cute Victorian hotel. Bedroom was very small, window air conditioner 1' from bed blowing directly all night. Bathroom was outside room, down hall even though it was our "private bath", Squeaking doors made getting up at night even worse. The cotton sheets were pilled making it feel like sand in bed. Continental breakfast. Never saw any staff. Not one our best B and B experiences.

"Nov 8010, 2013"
The house was charming. Lots of charming items, furniture, curtains, drapes knick knacks, very nice. The bed was quite comfortable though the pillows were a bit too hard. The bathroom was small and only had a small shower stall probably too small for a large person. The lady who managed the place (Rita) was very nice and helpful. On our first night she pointed us to a nearby "local" restaurant/bar that turned out to be a lot of fun. She was also very helpful in showing us the room without being too intrusive. The breakfast that was included was nice but did not have any special nice touches. There was the standard fruit, cereal, several types of breads, bagels but no hot rolls just out of the oven or hot food (like pancakes or waffles etc). There was plenty though. There were also small packets of candy to take as a snack if you so desired (maybe left overs from Halloween. The place was perfectly situated. Near the beach and all shopping.

"Rainy Day Sunshine"
So we went down in the middle of a nor'easter, it was raining the whole weekend and we were pretty much trapped in our room. Not at all the inn's fault, but thankfully it was still an awesome weekend. I guess God's plan was for me and my wife to just enjoy each other's company. We loved the inn and the service was great. When we go back to Cape May we'll be staying at Captain Mey's.

"Disappointing for the price"
Hardly ever saw the staff...breakfast was served in the dining room but it was just a continental breakfast. Also, we were on the 3rd floor and the room was very tiny with a lot of alcoves. There were only a few places where my husband could actually stand upright in the room. TV was very littlw and only provided 3 channels.

"Great B&B in the middle of it all"
We stayed for the weekend and it is a great location. Less than a block to the mall for shops and restaurants and 1 1/2 blocks to the beach. They let you use beach chairs and towels, even on your last day (as well as the outdoor shower). The breakfast is basic continental so you should not expect a full breakfast. In our room, the AC was rather loud when it turned on but other than that, it was a great stay.

Captain Mey's was a wonderful hotel. The B&B was immaculate, the room spacious, the bed very comfortable, and bathroom with Jacuzzi tub huge! My only suggestion would be for a home cooked breakfast as opposed to a some muffins and cereal, or yogurt for breakfast. The hotel is close to the mall and beach (though our weather wasn't really beach weather.

"Quaint B&B 1 Block From Washington Commons & Close to the Beach"
07/26/15 deshanko Kingston, Pennsylvania
We had a great stay. We were there for 5 nights. We had very little interaction with the staff, which sometimes isn't a bad thing. We got there and our key was waiting for us, we checked ourselves in. When we left, we just left the key in the room and took off. The room was small but comfortable. The building was very nice. We marveled at the woodwork. We will return.

"Relaxation achieved!"
07/09/15 LOuladdaoud Wilmington, Delaware
I made a solo trip here to relax and recharge by myself. Arrived thinking I had the Queen Beatrix but got the Willem the Silent room instead...major score! Although I would have had a private bath with the Queen room, it was outside of the room itself. Willem had an in-room bathroom. Room was impeccably clean the bed was comfortable. If you are looking for a "laid-back, do you own thing on your own time" kind of place then this is for you. The inn keeper is lovely and we engaged in a lively conversation! However, the rest of the time I did my own thing and was made to feel as though the inn was my home. Continental breakfast was pleasant and there was coffee, tea, and cold water available all day. Plenty of room on the porch and in the house to enjoy games and conversation if you are traveling with friends. I enjoyed sitting downstairs reading my book. This inn has a great location. 2 blocks from the beach and one block from Washington St. shopping and restaurants. I could not have asked for more! The inn has plenty of beach chairs and also offered beach towels for guest's convenience. On checkout day, I was encouraged to use the equipment to have a nice time on the beach and to use the outdoor bathroom so it would be like having an extra day. I ended up not doing this but it was nice to have the option!

"Horrible reservation process"
06/29/15 mmg17 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We made a reservation on the 800 number associated with the hotel. When we tried to cancel the reservation the person that answers the phone refused to cancel the reservation. Despite the reservation being three months out. They claim to have the reservation and they do take payment from the 800 service but claim no responsibility and refused to be of any assistance. This place is extremely unprofessional and dishonest.

"Excellent Value and In Town Too"
05/28/15 BikeLike Coatesville, PA
We stayed two days celebrating our 25th anniversary, at $99 per night plus tax. It is a bit different from our earlier visit about 20 years ago (no "full, hot breakfast"), but still a very good experience. The innkeeper is extremely nice, courteous and offers assistance for anything we needed. Yes, the rooms show their wear … but it is over 100 years old and VERY clean. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. The breakfast was "Continental" and was more than sufficient for us. We could get hot coffee, tea or cocoa in the dining room at any time … the same for juices and yogurt. The bagels, breads, and muffins were fresh … same for the hard-boiled eggs and fruit. The shower was kind of a tight fit and very clean … as was the rest of the bathroom. We were about 2 very short blocks from the center of town where there are lots of shops and restaurants. We could not have gone hungry if we tried! The beach is a few blocks the other way … a short walk. We thoroughly enjoyed the casual … but yet a bit formal … atmosphere of the Inn and the graciousness of the innkeeper

"Slight disappointment"
09/23/14 Mark O Newtown Square, Pennsylvania
It has become a family practice to spend a few days in early fall in Cape May NJ. This year we selected a different B & B at which to stay, The Captain Mey Inn. We found the rooms acceptable, but not exciting. The staff was frequently hard to find. Breakfast disappeared before we ever had a chance to enjoy it. Plates and utensil were no where to be found. One point which concerned me was the number of electrical issues, clearly violating code, which were unattended. I would expect that this would be the time of year for repairing and replacing those things which had been casualties of a busy summer. Needless to say, we will not return.

"Pretty Place, Great Location, but Cheaper is Dearer..."
09/09/14 Mitchell I New York
Booking online is a bit risky. Was advertised as, "Most affordable".Yes, probably for most, but there are better, more affordable deals around. Location is excellent; near a nice town area and the beach. Place was very pretty. When we got there, the door was locked and we called the number on the door and no one answered. Rita was surprised that she didn't hear the phone. So were we. Some other Trip Advisor Reporter said something similar where they stayed outside ignored in 90 degree weather. Nice guests let us in and showed us where everything was. Room: Room was cute in the Victorian Style. One bulb was out-minor. Our bathroom was not in our room; a bit inconvenient… Once the lock jammed…well… The bathroom was spacious and towels were nicely made up every day as the bed was too. The bathroom window could not open and I'm a Union Carpenter. The shower head had one setting/ "rusted" in place. After my GF took a shower and wanted to put on make up, she was sweating again due to no ventilation-no ventilation! The cute little containers of shampoo and body lotion were never replaced after the first day…so they had to last… We spoke to some guests down the block in another Victorian Bed and Breakfast Mansion. Their price was less expensive, had bikes and a better breakfast. A happier, more romantic experience. We brought our own bikes. The place is very safe though the bike rack was made out of wood and in need of repair. Three blocks away were more modern hotels that were way less expensive and on the beach, but these Victorian Mansions are lovely. So if expense is a factor, you will find a better deal and way more spacious rooms for a lower price. Important if you have kids. Breakfast from 9-11AM: Serve yourself-fine. Nice assortment of juices, rolls, bagels, fruits, etc. They ran out of hard boiled eggs (not in the advertisement to be fair). Most of the tea bag varieties were being saved...in the cabinet…for what? I don't know. We were watching Rita respond to guests who asked if she had any bananas (not in the advertisement to be fair). Her tone was very sweet. She said, due to the Morotcycles (??) in town…something,..that she didn't have bananas. My GF has one every day. We went to Acme, two blocks away and picked up blueberries, strawberries, rasberries and yes, bananas for 69 cents a pound. Yes, we have no bananas!!! At times, the coffee quality was erratic. When it was extremely diluted it was very disappointing. There was a Keurig machine there: bring your own pods because there are none there (advertised to be fair), but it will guarantee you a good cup of coffee. We went around the block basically and bought coffee. We felt the two girls who take care of the place, rooms food service etc., were disinterested and avoided being helpful. Victoria was particularly passive aggressive (lol), but accurate so I mention her here. None of the help said good morning to you so don't expect it. Upon checking out, Rita asked if we were happy with our stay. We said it was fine and sorta backed out slowly as we both looked at each other. Would I reccomend this place? No, as there are better deals around in as nice Mansions with a better experience waiting for you. Worst case scenario-sure.

I recommend you stay at a Holiday Inn Express over the Captain Mey's B&B anytime.
