this was our first visit to cape may and i can't think of any place better to stay. the charming appeal of wiling the day away on a front porch swing bench, the quaint coffeeshop in the entrance and the well-appointed foyer and rooms were a perfect setting for our 4-day / 3-night visit. there are three components to this...

My husband and I stayed at the Star Inn this past weekend for a quiet, relaxing getaway before our first child is born. We stayed at the inn based on it's tripadvisor reviews, which have never let us down! The location was great. One block from the beach, right next door to a coffee shop/internet cafe and within steps to... More

We stayed in Room 22 in the motel suites section. It is on the second floor, middle and you can see the ocean from the deck area but is not what I'd consider oceanview, but isn't advertised as such but I didn't want someone to be disappointed. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest I'd seen but it wasn't a dealbreaker either.... More

Just got back from a relaxing weekend in Cape May, and The Star was the biggest reason. The inn has the laid-back upscale look as its sister property, Congress Hall, but much quieter. Clever use of space, especially on the 3rd floor, made it fun and comfortable. And you have to just smile at the leopard print carpeting - perfect!... More

What a great place! We stayed in a first floor unit and had a secluded little patio off of the "master" bedroom, and a front porch with a swing and rocker. The rooms were very clean and the complimentary shampoos, etc. were not your normal motel fare. The staff was also very professional and courteous. Will definitely stay here again!

This was the most adorable place I can recall staying...cozy, beach house feel. We LOVED it and will be sure to return. The staff was very friendly and the Blue Pig Tavern served amazing food! Overall, it could not have been a more pleasant stay! Plus, the prices are GREAT!

My husband and I stayed at the Star in the first week of August. This was our first stay (in the hotel part), as we were longtime guests of the Sandpiper Beach Inn down Beach Ave., near the Lifeguard building. Unfortunately, the Sandpiper was sold this year and no longer operates as an Inn. Compared to the Sandpiper, the Star... More

My wife and I stayed at the Star Inn the last week in April, 2005. What a nice place! We were on the top floor in room 7 -- romantic room with a very nice view of the ocean. Indiviually controlled AC. Very clean and nicely furnished. Free Internet access; a good TV and nice bathroom. I would stay there... More

We stayed in room #7 for three days in mid-June and had a wonderful, romantic time. The ocean view, exceptionally comfortable bed, Aveda toiletries, and mini-fridge were all very much appreciated! We loved the inn's old-fashioned yet hip decor--very cool. We spent the late afternoons enjoying pre-dinner drinks on the front porch, looking out at the beach and the passerby.... More

We were in Cape May attending my cousins beautiful wedding. We stayed at the Star Inn 3 nights the first week of June. We had reserved room #6 after hearing it was the best. Right on. We had a very late arrival on our first night due to a pit stop at the Borgata. We called ahead and told them... More
