Our room on the top floor (in June) was comfortably cooled by the a/c unit. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. Bath nicely renovated. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts on the wrap-around porch were awesome! Located in walking distance to shops, but about 6-7 blocks from the beach (not hard to find parking, though, if you want...

We have been big fans of B&B’s for quite a while now, when we’re traveling we make an effort to stay in a B&B over a Hotel/Motel if possible. This came true again at Elaine’s, from the time we made our reservations and discussed the pluses and minus of the room when we made our selection to our arrival all...

Dinner and a show for $50, close to shops, beach and town! If you are looking for a place to stay that is the perfect location for activities around town---stay here!! Food was excellent (huge breakfast, gourmet dinner)! Show was great--fun, quirky and put on by talented hometown actors. Definitely will be back! Very gracious hosts, Shirley and Patrick.....and Paul...

Rooms are nice Internet connection is horrible. Hotel staff keeps everything clean. Mystery movie dinner hit or miss. I have visited this location several times and seen several shows. Actors are always great sometimes the story is not. The waitstaff was good at times and horrible at times. Food is OK.

We went to Elaine's to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. When I called to book a room, the person I spoke with was extremely helpful in describing the rooms and what each room had to offer. When we arrived, we were amazed at how beautiful our room was. There were photos on the website, but the room was even nicer...

I read the reviews before attending, but what happened? ....very disappointing. First of all they should of left it at Scrooge, it changed to Werewolf of London or something....ugh....very disappointed. Who picked that for a New Years Eve show? Food was just OK, wine was cheap and terrible, as was the champagne. Everyone took a small nap during the show,...

Two couples getaway to Cape May. First stay at Elaine's. Rooms were quaint, comfortable and enjoyable. Staff VERY friendly and welcoming. Delicious breakfast (included) and dinner as part of the "Scrooge" production. "Scrooge" had us belly laughing the entire time. Totally fun and entertaining. Highly recommend. Thanks to all who made a great New Years so wonderful!

We just got back from 3 nights at Elaine's, and as wonderful as it is in the summer, it is delightful in the winter! We got our favorite room and enjoyed the delicious breakfast each day. The Christmas decorations are gorgeous. There were times we were the only ones on Washington Mall but all the shops and restaurants were open...

We spent Thanksgiving at Elaine's and had a great time. The building was originally built in the 1860s but has been upgraded as you can imagine. The staff was warm and very laid back (although efficient enough.) The room was large and well appointed, although not quite at the "theme park" level you see in come B&Bs, and the breakfast,...
