Location was great with easy and walkable access to just about everything in town. Parking was off-site but a nice walk through town. Mad Batter Restaurant served up a fabulous breakfast. Music on Wednesday night was jazzy and nice. I was in Cape May for Coast Guard Graduation, spent two nights prior to it, and Carroll Villa was very accommodating.

We went the last week of September. Great time to visit. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly and helpful as we had some special requests. Seriously, I don't know when I had such incredible meals.

This is an old hotel on historical Jackson Street in Cape May, NJ. The hotel offers a comfortable room with modern amenities.

I had a hard time figuring out if this was more of a B&B or a hotel. It seemed like it was in the middle somewhere. The rooms are smallish but nice enough, decorated like you would see in victorian times. However, unlike a B&B, there are none of those "small touches" that make you really feel like you're being...

One of few B&Bs (small hotels) in Cape May that has rooms large enough for a family with young children. Room had pullout day bed. Ideal location: 1/2 block to beach, 1/2 block to walking mall and restaurants. Mad Batter restaurant has delicious food, though sometimes had to wait for a table to become available.

I too am a little surprised by the overwhelming positivity in the reviews. Although it is called the "Carroll Villa Hotel," it is a B&B, make no doubt. I am not a B&B lover, and this is the only time I visited Cape May, so take some of my comments with this in mind: The Good: The receptionst was extremely... More

We have stayed ay the B&B several times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are clean and bright, the staff accomodating and friendly. The HAPPY HOUR is a great time to relax and the patrons are friendly (mostly locals ?). The food is very, very good and everyone has heard about the breakfast. A can't miss in CM.

We recently spent a few nights at Carroll Villa Hotel and had a great time. The staff is lovely and very accommodating. The service overall was great and the Mad Batter serves delicious food. We found the room extremely comfortable and quiet and would return. The location can't be beat - easy walking to the beach, shops and restaurants.

then this hotel/B&B is the place you want. The Victorial style is nicely updated and the staff is very helpful. Rooms are AC, but hallways are not. It IS the beach.
