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

Enjoyed my stay at Carroll Villa. I felt comfortable in the room because the room was clean. Carpet in the hallways could use a shampoo. It was nice to stay in a bed and breakfast that had other amenities such as a restaurant and live entertainment. The location is fabulous. Parking is a slight draw back because it is about... More

We relied on Tripadvisor reviews to select this hotel and were disappointed. The staff was pleasant, breakfast was great, but this place is really showing it's age. The lobby and our room smelled musty. The bathroom was rundown. Towels and bedding worn out. The off site parking is a pain because there's no one readily available to help you with... More

Thank you for your thoughts..We are always looking for ways to improve our hotel, We replace furniture,towels, sheets and bedding periodically. In the next few weeks we wii replace the carpeting in many rooms. We provide off street parking in season which is the best we can do in a town with a "parking problem". We are always ready to...

Have been eating breakfast at the Mad Batter (the best at the Cape) for many years while visiting Cape May, but have stayed at the Carroll Villa/Mad Batter the last three years and now would not stay anywhere else. Room rates are reasonable, rooms are kept well, staff is so friendly, just a few steps to the beach and the... More

The location in Cape May could not be better. It's on a beautiful street with Victorian houses right near all the shopping and the beach in Cape May. The breakfast the next morning in the cafe was also quite pleasant. Unfortunately, I wish I could say the same about the service and the room quality. I paid top dollar for... More

We are a family run, 3 generation business. We take great pride in our hotel and restaurant that we have been running since 1976. A manager or owner is at the business from morning to nite. We take all problems seriously and try to deal with them in a timely manner. The annex was built around 1892. The hallways are... More

Look, I've stayed at lots of places in lots of places, but when I'm in Capt May, my wife and I stay at the Carroll Villa. The staff is very helpful to everyone in the place. The location is less than a quarter-block from the beach, and the rooms are clean, filled with antiquey things and very comfortable. My favorite... More

Dear hus4154, How thrilled we are that you continue to enjoy our hotel and restaurant.!!! I too am partial to the skirt steak. We consider ourselves very lucky to have such a talented chef. Since we have recently finished a round of redecorating, try Room 21 on your next visit. Like Room 14, it also has a limited view as... More
