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

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in December and had an amazing time. It's right across the street from Congress Hall. As everyone else said, the "motel suites" are beautifully decorated in a retro fashion and updated with a mini fridge, microwave, pots and pans, coffee maker, etc. Here are some things of note: -You have to...

My husband and I stayed here In early December and plan to make it an annual event. The hotel is in a great location right across from it's big sister, Congress Hall where we went to enjoy the Winter Wonderland and restaurants. We stayed in the efficiency room and it was very nice, with a lot of room, king size... More

We just spent two nights on the second floor of the motel unit at The Star. It was a two-room efficiency suite with a great lounging couch, flat screen TV in each room, kitchenette, great bed/bedding, and an ocean view. We had access to Congress Hall but were tucked away in a quiet place. The town was decorated for Christmas... More

I have been to Cape May many times and have stayed at a number of The Star's sister properties including Congress Hall and The Sandpiper. My family made a somewhat last minute decision to spend Labor Day weekend in Cape May. Of course, most of the town was fully booked already, especially considering we were 4 adults looking for 2...

We stayed here for the weekend to go to Oktoberfest in Cape May. We had one of the dining Motel-style Efficiencies on the 2nd floor. The room was great. My only complaints were the bathroom was a little small and they use flat sheets instead of fitted on the beds, which tend to come off in the middle of the... More

I have stayed at Congress Hall (same owners at the Star) but could not get a room for this weekend so we decided on The Star. The hotel / Inn is very nice and clean but not as compared to Congress Hall. Our room was room #8 and was Claustrophobic! It was in the attic of the house and the... More

Bad points- Room at the Inn was incredibly small for the price of over $400 with tax for 2 nights. Looking at the layout of the rooms, some were larger than... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate our anniversary. The Star Inn was very clean and quaint with a great location. The staff were friendly and welcoming. HOWEVER, the room was incredibly small (12X16). The sink in the bathroom was the size of a sink in an airplane, (no lie). There was a small glass shelf... More

We stayed here about 7 years ago and really liked it. The last time we had a room with a king size bed. It was a little bigger than what we had this time. OK, we knew the place was small, but the room we got this time was ridiculous. It was the size of a postage stamp. We stayed... More
