Had a lovely July 4th weekend at Elaine's. Comfy beds, great AC, fun atmosphere and delicious breakfast. Who could ask for anything more? 3 min walk to Congress Hall and shopping, assigned parking (in shade). Go to Elaine's! So relaxing.

Fourth trip to Elaine's and although I didn't think it was possible, it keeps getting better and better! The new patio is a great place to kick back and enjoy the entertainment with a great appetizer and a drink. The rooms as usual, were immaculate, the dinners are delicious, and the staff is the best anywhere! Patrick and Shirley go... More

Booked 5 days at Elaine's in early Feb of this year for mid-June, and Joan was not only great over the phone but even more helpful and personable in person! Room was outstanding! Comfortable, and we had our own sitting room and private wraparound porch on the second floor. Queen bed was relaxing and we slept like the dead. They... More

Took a shot on a two day getaway in Cape May. We work monster hours and never get away. The thing that made us try Elaine's was that there was a full breakfast menu available instead of the usual Bed and Breakfast limited options. When we got there we were greeted by the most pleasant people you would want to... More

We have been to Elaine's dinner show a few times over the years but never stayed at the B&B. Typically, we spend a week in North Wildwood every June and drive to Cape May a few times a week for other dining and shopping experiences.

My husband and I are leaving our weekend stay and I'm so happy that we chose Elaine's. They have a new customer for life in me. Joan, the hostess, was so kind and gracious. There wasn't a thing that she didn't offer to help with. The show was a lot of fun, and actors were funny. We'll be returning.
