Stayed here July 10th weekend for our anniversary. Awesome retro/shabby chic motel room with neat kitchen efficiency. The room had a king size bed with a separate room with a modern sectional pull out couch. You could easily sleep two kids on couch without pulling it out. Cute little chandelier above couch. Flat screen tv, free coffee, microwave, fridge. Excellent... More

Close to the central cape may area and beaches. I visited off season with extended family and stayed int he two bedroom. Saved money on meals and drinks as the unit contained mini kitchen and living area. convenient and easy to navigate. No frills and not for romance.

We had room 21, which had an ocean view from the balcony (yes, across a parking lot, but still could see the ocean). The room was clean and the housekeeping staff friendly. Not at all pretentious, and loved that there was a refrigerator and microwave. Easy walking distance to both the beach and shopping/restaurants. Enjoyed Saturday afternoon drinks in the... More

The group that owns Congress Hall owns this property as well so the amenities are great and so is the service. Two issues: the two bedroom carriage house suites have full size beds which are not comfortable for two adults in a bed and there is inadequate soundproofing. The one bedroom units have kings and a sofa bed. During one... More

Yes, it is expensive...in the peak season. Much of Cape May is, but I used priceline to book a night at the Star Inn for about 30% than off season rates. The Star Inn is connected to Congress Hall across the street and it is worth the stay to be associated there. We received a $15 dining credit at the... More

The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The condo that we stayed in was very clean, well furnished, and nicely decorated. It's right across the street from Congress Hall, where you check in. We has a nice ocean view -- even though we were there when it was snowing. It was very reasonably priced for a stay in December, however,... More
