It has been several years since we've stayed there but we we had nothing but a great experience there. Yes, you have to share a bathroom but never had to wait long. Always stayed on the third floor to get the ocean view and breezes. Cannot beat the location and the price for staying on the beach and one block... More

We found this place by luck. Its a 1/2 block off the beach. Great location. We walked everywhere. This Bed and breakfast has a history of ghost.It was wonderful going back in time. Our bedroom was very nice, all you need was there . We shared a bathroom. It is truly A GHOSTLY Victorian home. Breakfast was different every morning.... More

My daughter and I stayed at the seaVilla on a mother daughter trip to Cape May 4 times. It was great! Very reasonably priced, very Victorian and antiquey and right across the street from the beach. Plus the breakfasts were always wonderful. Where are you SeaVilla??? Did you die in the hurricane last year, 2011???? We miss you!

First of all those complaints are unwarranted as all of you guys looked for the cheapest hotel. Yes it is a bit musty but a bottle of febreeze can fix that. this is a $120 a night stay compared to $300-$500 elsewhere. A good victorian feel and all you do is cross the streetto the Beach. This villa is central... More

Let's just say, this is THE WORST bed and breakfast that we have ever stayed at. As soon as we walked in the door, we were nauseated with the smell of cat/dog urine. We were baffled because we called the owner to ask if there were any pets and he specifically said there weren't. He lied to us before we... More

I was very surprised to read the reveiws on the Sea Villa, since we stayed overnight last night and did not see anything like what is described. Maybe things have changed, or maybe our expectations were different. My husband and I decided to go to Cape May on the spur of the moment. We did not have reservations, so after... More

My wife & I booked the room from the internet (not anything like trhe photos on the internet) & sent one night deposit to hold the room. We were to spend our 32 nd anniversary there. We walked into the place & smelled dog or cat or dead something. We looked at the room & saw dirt & disarray. We... More

My husband and I opted to stay here over the 4th of July weekend despite all the terrible reviews in the previous years. We figured that the owners would have taken care of these issues by now since there were no reviews listed in 2010 before our stay. Take our advice and look elsewhere. Our room was small with antique... More

The Inn has an amazing location, but parking was a nightmare, and the smell was so bad and overpowering (wet dog, pot pouri, airfreshener) that I went into an asthma attack and left.
