We stayed at the Star Inn and as guests there, you have full access to Congress Hall. The inn was spotless in terms of cleanliness and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff was always pleasant and accomodating. On the day of check out, we were even able to use their FREE umbrella and lounge chair service on the beach, keep... More

We came here for our first anniversary and enjoyed it immensely! The rooms are small but stylish and the beds are super comfortable. The bedding itself was so luxurious and soft as well. It was very quiet on the third floor and we had a view of the ocean. Star Inn patrons have full access to Congress Hall's amenities, which... More

Off season but all the attention to detail was still there. Relaxing and offering great views at below market rates. What's not to love?

We usually spend Thanksgiving at Cape May and for the last two have stayed at the Star Motel.We feel very much at home there. The positives outweiigh a few negatives. We especially like the bed and shower. The rooms are quiet and the windows open. There are no staff at the motel but we found that the people at Congress... More

The great thing about the Star is that it owned by, and is right across the street from, the Congress Inn. This means you can use all the Congress Inn's facilities. For example, when we wanted to go to the beach we just showed up at the Congress Inn's beach tent, showed them our room keys, and they set up... More

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
