Booked this after looking at reviews on TripAdvisor and didn't want to spend a fortune as we had been traveling for a month already... Asked for recommendations for "fine dining" for dinner from the Concierge at Congress Hall and he seemed to only recommend restaurants within the same corporate group as Congress Hall/The Star... :-( We were particularly surprised he...

My husband and I stayed here from August 22 to 23, just a quick overnight to celebrate his birthday. We truly had such an excellent time. The staff was very nice and the room was adorable and extremely clean. Everything was comfortable and very convenient. We went to the beach and used beach chairs, towels and umbrella provided by the... More

I have been staying at the star every summer for years. It is a great deal if you want to be included in Cape Resorts discount programs and be able to partake in Congress Halls discount programs and deals. BUT...the Star's quality is declining and its price increases over the past few years are unjustified. If you are planning on... More

Planned a short business\pleasure trip of one day and at the last minute decided to stay two nights. While they did have an efficiency available for another day but we would have to switch rooms the next morning. That wasn't a problem for us and the staff said just to leave our things by the door and they would move... More

I spent one night at Star Inn with my love. We reserved a king-bed room, to my surprise, a suite came to us! Room #12, it was at the first floor near the parking lot. At the beginning I disliked it. However the lovely double swing in the front yard and the comfortable big table and bench in the backyard... More

Very nice room. Location was great. The staff were beyond nice and helpful also. We also got to use the pool at congress hall during our stay. The pool was outstanding and there are 2. One for families and 1 for just adults. Parking also was the besr. Would definitely stay again.

We checked in at The Star for a mid-week two-day stay and were happy to find an ocean view room within our budget. The room was clean, the hotel decor ecletic (think Victorian Eastlake chairs with modern accessories), towels and linens nice and an attractive marble bathroom. Our room (2nd floor of the house) was super tiny. It's all we... More

Room Type: Standard Rate Paid: $219 per night Reason For Stay: Leisure (Reviewers Note: I waffled a bit on this one, deciding between a 4 and a 3. As you can see, the score works out to a 4, but I was very much inclined to deduct an extra point - see my notes at the end why I didn't)... More

We stayed here for only one night but would recommend it to anyone visiting. The rooms were small but clean and the bedding and towels were lovely. The complimentary goodies were better than more expensive hotels that I have stayed in and more generous. The blue pig across the road has a great breakfast too.

We recently stayed at The Star to celebrate my MILs birthday. We stayed in one of the Carriage House Suites, which has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, as well as a small kitchen area (we were able to bring a homemade carrot cake to keep in the fridge). There were 8 of us total: my in-laws stayed in one bedroom,... More
