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

I've stayed at several B and B's, hotels and motels in Cape May, and have to say that this was one of the nicest places I have stayed. We stayed in the suite, which was really nice. The bathroom was spotless and had been re-done in stainless. It was quiet, lovely and romantic. We brought wine and cheese and they... More

My husband and I chose Congress Hall (The Star Inn annex) for a weekend getaway. We can't wait to go back for a longer visit! The facility runs seamlessly and the staff is so professional. The food at The Ebbitt Grill and The Blue Pig rival the best of what we have sampled in New York and Philadelphia.

We needed to check in a day early for Congress Hall but no rooms were available. They had an efficiently suite available across the street at their Star. We decided to try it and were very happy we did! The efficiency suite had a large King bedroom, nice size living room with a flat screen tv. Very comfortable with a... More
