What a beautiful, romantic weekend my girlfriend and I had at The Mission Inn. The room (San Buenaventura) was everything you could ask for, yet more. Comfortable warm furnishings, sumptuous bed, and a flat panel tv to watch March Madness (for 5 minutes only). The inn, is quiet, cozy, filled with history and character. Ray and Susan are as warm...

We usually prefer the anonymity of a hotel but are so glad we chose to stay at the Mission Inn. Besides making us feel welcome, Susan and Ray seemed completely relaxed--giving no indication of how hard they must work behind the scenes to make the Mission Inn function so flawlessly. Special shout-out to Leslie for the extraordinary breakfasts, too.

Ray and Susan were absolutely right on top of our weekend stay. We have stayed at 4 B+B's over the years but The Mission Inn by far exceeded our expectations. The hospitality was never ending and I can't tell you how awesome the meals were. The unlimited coffee, teas, conversation was there for the asking. My wife and I were... More

The proprietors of this amazing Inn, Susan and Ray, are to be commended for their uncompromising dedication to hospitality. I've stayed in several five-star hotels which could not hold a candle to this place. Remarkable attention to every possible detail. The rooms are beautifully appointed in a Spanish Mission style archtecture. Breakfasts and afternoon hors d'oeuvres are all fresh, local... More

Our third time staying at a B&B in Cape May was such an incredible experience that we made another reservation for July before leaving. Previous stays had been at the typical Victorian style homes and although quaint and historically interesting they were too similar and we were looking for something different. The Mission Inn is just that, as it's name... More
