Amazing experience! The Mission Inn is absolutely beautiful, and the rooms are luxurious . Our room had an incredible shower, hot tub, and fireplace. Wendy and Laura are the nicest, most down to earth people, and it was a pleasure getting to know them. They have happy hour in the afternoon where they serve wonderful appetizers and specialty wine and...

If I could give them 10 stars instead of 5, I would. I have stayed in a lot of places, but have never been in a place that matched the Mission Inn. The inn and rooms are gorgeous and you feel very pampered just being there. But it is Laura and Wendy's hospitality that really make the place. Friendly and...

We just spent a fabulous weekend at The Mission Inn and loved every minute of it. The beautiful old home is saturated in character with the Mission theme from the headboards to the painted ceilings. But it's the hospitality of Wendy and Laura that really sets this place apart. From the get go, we were told to make ourselves at...

Stayed over this past Tuesday. First time. Was gifted to us at Christmas (2 nights). We chose 1 night now and one later. Laura (Innkeeper) was just great. Our room was perfect. We found ourselves to be the only guests that evening. No matter, Laura treated us with every detail and amenity that she would provide with a full house...

This was our first visit to Cape May and our two-night stay at the Mission Inn was exceptional. Rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable, and the owners could not have been more accommodating. Breakfasts were top-notch delicious; you could tell chef Leslie loves her creative work! Late afternoons spent in the inviting sunroom, with other guests and owners, were lots...

From my first communication via email with Wendy, I knew this was the place for us! She was warm and helpful and although there was a 2 night minimum for our weekend, we were only able to stay away for 1 night and Wendy was absolutely awesome about it! From the moment we walked in, Wendy made us feel comfortable...

We absolutely loved our stay at the Mission Inn. Santa Barbara was a beautiful room, and so were the others Laura showed us. Can't wait to go back and try another room. Great food, lovely owners, nice bikes to ride around, and the beauty of Cape May.

We have been coming to the Mission Inn for over 5 years. We were happy and sad to hear about the sale of the Inn in November We worried that it could never be the same. We were so wrong. This past weekend we went back for the first time with the new owners. It was a last minute one...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Recently awarded the 2017 Travelers Choice Award for B&B's & Inns by Trip Advisor as the #1 bed and breakfast in Cape May, NJ (5 years in a row), #3 in the USA, and #11 in the world, The Mission Inn Bed and Breakfast is not your typical Cape May B&B. We invite you to experience the charm of a California Spanish Mission Style Bed and Breakfast just one block from the beach. You will find The Mission Inn guest rooms to be bright, airy, tastefully decorated, creative and restful places for the weary traveler as was the purpose of the original California missions. Each guest room is themed after one of the missions, with artistic murals and accents designed to resemble the original mission. The common areas were themed to reflect the warmth of the missions. Each year additional improvements are planned and implemented. Return guests are always finding the "little changes" that reflect the attention to detail so noticeable at the Inn. Book one of our 8 Rooms before they fill up! We are an Inn for all seasons and open all year round. ... more   less
