Comfortable and clean, but a little worn in. Bed was comfy, but pillows were horrible (front desk manager said they were in process of replacing all pillows, thankfully.) Decor was Victorian inspired but in that floral-wallpaper-overkill kind of way. Whole place needs a coat of fresh paint. Breakfast at the Mad Batter restaurant was the highlight - food and service...

The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very accomodating, especially Eddie at the front desk. We wanted to go to the movies one night, Eddie printed out diections for us and also gave us tips on a few restaurants. Nice job Eddie. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. Nice being a few hundred few away from the beach... More

Very overpriced. Be careful if you go as they tack on a lot of taxes and stuff. The advertised price was something like $120 but I ended up paying $180. That is a pretty big markup. Maybe all Cape May inss do the same but this one was not worth it. Very old, drafty and not so attractive. The front... More

We had a great stay here. The room was cozy and clean. The location was great -- right by the beach and in the middle of town.

We had a really great time...stayed in room 20 on the first floor. Loved not having to go up and down the stairs, room was perfect and breakfast was delicious! Highly recommend. Everything was updated and clean...can't believe the building is as old as it is! THANK YOU!

The rooms are extremely nice and well maintained. The property is a real gem along Jackson Street just a 2-3 minute walk from the Cape May Mall and beach. The adjoining Mad Batter restaurant had a great menu, attentive service, and our room included restaurant credits and discounts. The customer service at the hotel was excellent. The internet service while... More

We always enjoy our stay at The Carroll Villa Hotel. The staff is friendly and they go out of their way to accommodate you. The beach and the wonderful shops are just a short walk away. The Mad Batter Restaurant is excellent and the bar is a great place to gather after a day on the beach or just relaxing... More

This was an absolutely charming, warm and cozy establishment. I could not believe how immaculately clean everything was. It was the best stay that I have had since going to Cape May previously. Everyone could not have been nicer. The breakfast at the Mad Batter that comes with your stay was the best I have ever had at the Jersey... More

During our stay at the Carroll Villa hotel my mother and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Mad Batter Restaurant was beyond words amazing! Everything from the breakfast to the dinner to the amazing martinis at the bar. The Bartender was very nice and could certainly make an awesome drink! We stayed in room 6, which was the king size bed... More
