We went to celebrate a special occasion, and this hotel was an ideal choice. Although a bit expensive, this was justified by the great location and the 30% discount for dinner (plus $30 voucher for breakfast or lunch from 8am-3pm) in the Mad Batter restaurant downstairs, which is justifiably a very popular place to eat so be sure to make...

I guess we traveled in high season, so the rate for our room #4, with a king sized bed, was sky high - $350 a night. When I pay $350 a night, I expect 4 star quality, but not when I get 3 star. The wall paper was peeling near the ceiling of the room because of water damage, mold... More

The hotel is well located within walking distance to beach and shops. We had a queen room on the third floor. The room was small as one would expect in an older home in which a bathroom has been adde, but clean and well air conditioned. Breakfast was a voucher to the Mad Batter Restaurant which is right downstairs....nice perk,... More

The folks who work there are very friendly and helpful. This is the best place to stay in CM. Sure, the rooms are on the small side, but the location is terrific. The beach is a half block away and everything else is nearby. The Mad Batter breakfast is one of the best anywhere.

This hotel was perfect for our first visit to Cape May. Although we thought the price was high, it was a lot less than most of the hotels in the area. Also, as a guest of this hotel you are given a 30% discount at the restaurant (The Mad Batter) in the same building, so therefore it's a pretty good... More

My husband and I just spent three days at the Carroll Villa and had such a nice time. I love the fact that this is an historic house decorated with antiques. There are so many beautiful pieces of furniture to see. The room was very cosy and I loved the bathroom set-up where the shower had built-in body wash, shampoo... More
