On an east coast road trip from Boston to Tampa we decided to take the scenic route and stay overnight in Cape May before getting the Ferry the next morning. We chose the Carrol Villa hotel based on the good reviews from tripadvisor and couldn't have been happier. The town itself boasts the largest number of historic buildings in the... More

We were in Room 34, 3rd floor of the annex. Yes there are 2 steep flights of steps but it was in the back and private and a good size room. It is a cute, B&B sort of hotel but with full service restaurant. We had breakfast there twice. It was very good! Tom is an asset to the Mad... More

Our stay at the Carroll Villa was very nice. Our room was small but adequate for the 2 of us. Understanding the Idiosyncrasies of the heating unit took a little time and getting the hot water up to our 2nd floor room in the annex takes about 5 minutes; small inconveniences in an otherwise delightful stay at a very reasonable...

This is my second stay at the Carroll Villa and once again my husband and I enjoyed ourselves. We love the location and the packages that are offered. The rooms are beautifully decorated.

My wife and I have stayed at one particular B&B when visiting Cape May for some years now, and we thought we'd try something else. We're really glad we did. This quaint 1875 building hosts numerous rooms that are comfortable, well-furnished, clean, and close to the beach and shops. I found the personnel very accommodating and pleasant. A nice perk...

Went in December. Very quiet and relaxing. Very old building. Clean. Loved the Mad Batter downstairs. Very nice overall atmosphere. I doubt that I would book this place in the summer though. A nice Christmas winter getaway...but not my idea of a summer beach hotel.

Dear Joe: We are glad that you enjoyed your quiet Christmas getaway to the Carroll Villa. The owners have a knack for transforming the hotel from summer glee to winter coziness. Cape May is actually known as The Nation's Oldest Seaside Resort and the Carroll Villa was built in 1882 for the sole purpose of summer visitors. I think you... More

Always a good time at the Carroll Villa and the Mad Batter. Friendly and attentive staff, great food and the best happy hour in town. Great music at night in the bar. Open mic night on Sundays is fun too!
