"B&Bs the way to go" Cape May Hotel Tip by eight_08

Cape May Hotels: 66 reviews and 62 photos

Since I am a local, I cannot really comment on any specific inn because I've never stayed at one. However, in my youth I chambermaided at two and have been aquainted with the business practices of many other B&B owners. People who run B&Bs in town are almost always very dedicated to hospitality. You have to be in order to let total strangers invade your home for at least 9 months out of the year. Because most of them have a small amount of bedrooms (between 5 and 10) the owners give very individualized service and really enjoy getting to know their guests. And they really, really want to see you come back! It's the best way to really relax, feel at home, and have a local handy to quiz about different aspects of town. Many of them are very up on local history and culture and can tell lots of stories and give helpful advice. Plus, the majority of B&Bs are within walking distance to the center of town, which is a plus. I strongly advise finding yourself a nice B&B, which the Chamber of Commerce is more than willing to help with. A few solid, reputable names are The Queen Victoria, Inn at 22 Jackson, The Abbey, and The Angel of the Sea.
