We have been coming to Cape May and staying in the Carroll Villa for years. We love staying here. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We also love eating at the Mad Batter and eat all our meals there during our stay. We will be coming to Cape May and staying... More

This trip with friends was enhanced by the graciousness of staff, the casual warmth of the surroundings, the over the top splendid food, the cozy, and comfortable room, the hot coffee always in the living room, and of course, the 1/2 block to the beach. The few days spent felt too short. Next trip will be a bit longer...Great time... More

Great location, so close to the beach & Washington Street Mall & just about everything else!! Breakfast at the Mad Batter was delicious! We stayed in Room 19 (last one left when reserving)--it was very small, bathroom was larger than I expected though. Would definitely stay there again!

The service was great, the rooms are small and the bed wasn't the most comfortable. The place could probably use some renovating, but it's very charming. This place really gives you the feel of old world cape may. The location is fantastic, its right in the middle of the town its so easy to walk anywhere. The food at the... More

The Villa is just a block from the beach. Free parking is available a few blocks from the hotel. The breakfast menu has a load of choices and the $30 credit more than covers what one might normally order (you obviously could order more than $30 of food but for two that would mean gorging). Fresh squeezed juice was great.... More

We've been going back to Carroll Villa for probably 15 years now. First with children and now just the 2 of us. If you are looking for Victorian charm but with modern amenities and wonderful service you will enjoy this hotel. Plus the Mad Batter restaurant can't be beat. Any time someone asks me where I recommend to stay &... More

The Inn is located on the Main Strip of Jackson Street which is a short walk to the beach and shopping. The staff was extremely courteous. The offering of a voucher for either a free breakfast or lunch (up to $30) was a great surprise. No rushing to get to breakfast at a certain time or have lunch instead, breakfast... More

I only have one complaint and I know it is out of your control and that is the distance you have to walk to park. That aside it was a great weekend with our granddaughter and we will surely recommend..keep up the great job you do.

That was my wife' s opinion after staying in Cape May for our first time. Now we know why it has such a high rating. Centrally located in the heart of town and surrounded by Victorian era homes of every description we were just steps away from the beach. What we enjoyed the most was the Mad Batter Restaurant right... More

My hotel stay was unforgettable. The hotel is incredibly charming, comfortable and perfectly located near the beach and shopping. The staff, especially Kathy who welcomed me was very friendly and helpful in making reservations and pointing out areas of interest in town. The room was a delightful trip back in time, a charming Victorian with beautiful white lace curtains blowing... More
