Dont think we'll be back since we like to be at the beach later in the day (they close up beach service a liitle before 6 pm. No towels, no chairs available. We can save money staying elsewhere and bringing our own beach gear. Smoking is permitted on the balconies at this hotel. It is close quarters. We also had... More

We went to the Star for a quick, mid-week getaway. Overall, stay very pleasant, but there were some things that they could work on. We booked an "ocean-view" room in the Inn, and the view was laughable, Also, if you are going to pay $20 extra per night for an ocean view, the hotel should probably clean the bird poo... More

We stayed in the Inn part during a trip to Cape May recently. The room was on the small side, but it was very comfortable and had an ocean view. Its right in the center of town, easy walking distance to all the great restaurants and stores. The room was clean, the staff friendly and helpful- things that we have... More

I was so pleasantly surprised by my stay at the Star Inn. This was our first trip to Cape May and because we have a baby, we felt that we wanted to stay at a hotel and not a B&B (just in case our little guy was having a "bad day"). After an exhaustive search I felt like the majority... More

I'm just back from a a 3-night stay at the Star Inn's motel section. It is a real find and I hope to return there on future visits to Cape May. It is convenient to the beach and to town. If you are on the second floor with one of the lower numbered rooms (20,21) you can view the ocean... More

We recently stayed at The Star Inn for 4 nights. The room was very small but comfortably appointed. Literally there was just a bed, dresser, 2 end tables and a small path around the bed, however we found a way to tuck our belongings out of the way. We were on the 3rd floor and the ceiling was sloped which... More

We have stayed across the street at Congress Hall before; and loved it. This year we stayed at the Star Inn. The rooms are reasonably priced. They are on the small side but very cozy. The one thing I would add is just a tiny mini-fridge so you could keep few drinks or snacks cold. Other than that, this will... More

My husband and I stayed at the Star Inn the weekend of May 19th. We were in one of the 'motel' rooms which was very nice. You have both a front porch and a quiet, private sitting area in the back (if you're on the first floor). There is a nice sitting area in the front with a pull out... More

We purchased a Living Social deal to stay at the Star Inn on a Friday night during Valentine's Day weekend. We were amazed as we arrived and saw beautiful Congress Hall (where we checked in). We were also pleasantly surprised to learn the Star Inn was literally across the street from there. The room was very tiny but clean and... More
