My husband and I arrived early and were greeted promptly by the friendly front desk. We were surprised that our room was ready. We stayed in room 3 ocean view king which we found to be very comfortable. We loved being able to use the facilities across the street at the Congress Hall. We enjoyed the relaxed resort feeling at... More

This hotel is very charming. The room is very small but clean and is in a perfect location. You can walk to restaurants and shops. There is a convenient coffee shop in the lobby and my mother and I loved sitting on the porch in the morning and also in the evening time. The AC worked great and the bedding... More

My husband and I took an impromptu trip to Cape May for our anniversary. We didn't even have a place to stay as we started our 2 hour drive there. I searched the internet and found The Star Inn. I read a few reviews on it and seeing that it had vacancy, I called to book a room for the... More

We went for my birthday in January, I do not think I can afford the hotel during peak season! It is beautiful, our room was so cozy and the bed was a dream. It is next to congress hall which is great, and a 1 minute walk to the beach. I also enjoyed sitting the common living room areas and... More

Stayed here for 1 night to celebrate our anniversary. The room we were given was the smallest room I've ever stayed in and I've travelled extensively. Part of the room is taken up by the standing air conditioner unit. They also need to invest in new pillows and mattresses so at least you can get a great night sleep to... More

We booked this hotel for our wedding anniversary and it was spectacular! Just driving up, we were impressed by the surrounding area and proximity to the beach. We found the Star Inn to be charming and romantic. Hotel check-in was at 3 and once we walked in, we were especially impressed with the decor and cleanliness of the room. We... More

This property is in a central location, right across from Congress Hall and steps away from the Washington Street Mall. I appreciated the Aveda bath products. I stayed in room 2, which was tiny and without central air. The stand up air conditioner was noisy and did little to cool the room. Neither of the two windows shut all the... More

We booked this hotel on our first visit to Cape May because it looked clean, and it was. Our room was very clean the bed was comfortable but this was a bare bones room compared to what is offered in most hotels these days. Our room was on the 3rd floor walk up which was okay with us good excercise.... More

Adorable little inn owned by congress halls ( so a ton of perks ) close to ocean and just plan to park your car and never get in it again until you leave. Upon check in , we were first assigned to the attic room, in main house .. It was cute but closterphobic. We switched to the efficiency rooms... More
