The hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. The Mad Batter restaurant is on the ground floor and is really convenient for breakfast. The $30 voucher will get you a full breakfast for two. Dinner is a bit expensive but you can get 30% vouchers off two adult entrees. It's about two short blocks to the shopping strip... More

Mark, Pam and the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. Breakfast on the front portch is amazing. Nice to relax with that second cup of coffee and watch the people go by. The beach is a block away and and everything you need is in walking distance. The Mad Batter has a great bar... More

I booked the room that the website characterized as great for a family - large. Really? With the trundle bed in use, you couldn't walk around the room -we had to crawl over the beds. It was tiny! The mattresses on the daybed and trundle were sagging so badly, my 7 year old complained about his back for days. I... More

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay. The room was great, and the food at the Mad Batter was excellent. Overall the Carroll Villa is a great bargain and a great place to stay when you visit Cape May. P.S. The staff are super welcoming and accommodating!

As My mother told me, there are always two sides to a story. First, we want to again send our condolences to the family. As per the "review", we made every attempt to help the man with the offer to come to the Carroll Villa another time. We said we were truly sorry about the loss of a loved one,... More

Looking for somplace to go at the spur of the moment I chose the Carrol Villa in Cape May. It was very quaint as you would expect in an old Victorian Hotel but was very clean and accommodating. The staff was very friendly and if you spent time talking to them they were never in a rush to move you... More

Using my iphone Tripadvisor app for navigation, we pulled up to the Carroll Villa with no reservation and were warmly welcomed, given a lovely room (the balcony on the street) and enjoyed every moment. From the delicious dinner, the live music, the local beers, it was definitely the place to be. The lineup for the Mad Batter restaurant went down... More

Stayed here one night for our anniversary. Room was clean but small, probably due to the older age of the building. Our time at the hotel was limited but the proximity to the shopping and the beach made it worthwhile. Also enjoyed a nice breakfast at the restaurant downstairs. Overall a pretty nice place.

We spent the fourth of July weekend here and had a wonderful experience. The room, the food, the staff and the location were spectacular. The only complaint I can come up with is that we had to leave too soon ! My wife and I fell in love with the historic district, the architecture and colorful exteriors were lovely. It... More
