My wife and I go for a night at the Virginia the last Saturday before Xmas every year...to celebrate the anniversary of us getting engaged. We love this place for the location, the quaint rooms, the wonderful friendly service every time, and the fact The Ebbitt Room is downstairs in the lobby (which is a tremendous restaurant). There is nothing... More

I have stayed at the Virginia Hotel in Cape May many times. I have never been disappointed. The location is fantastic, located a block away from town, and two blocks from the beach. The hotel features a first rate restaurant , the Ebbitt Room, and a very cozy bar. Guests are served a very delicious continental breakfast, with numerous choices... More

the building is undergoing a paint job, which staff fail to mention.... the furnishings are shabby. there was paint & sand in the bed, literally. the manager, Tara, doesn't care. the place is overpriced. the land line, inside the unit, did not function. this building was built in the 1800s & that is was you get: 1800s treatment.

Laura S Laura, thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate all reviews that or valued guests post. We had a beautiful pocket of nice weather and thought it the perfect time to repaint the building. I understand your disappointment about the sand that you found in the bed and we reacted quickly to remake the... More

We visited pre-season, the last week of April, so things were quiet and nerves were not frayed. We had wonderful interactions with all the staff. My hotel ratings are greatly influenced by hospitality and the Virginian excelled in hospitality during our stay. The front desk girl offered a warm welcome and explained the hotel amenities. Due to horrendous traffic around... More

Our first time at this Hotel. It is one of the Cape May Resorts Group properties so it has the beach amenities and the use of Congress Hall facilities. We had a standard Queen room with no view. But no matter as we were in it only to sleep. The room was very clean with top notch sheets and a... More

We have been coming to the Virginia since the 90s. A few years ago we had a bad experience and decided never again. Since we frequent other Cape Resorts establishments (Congress Hall) we decided to give it another shot after receiving a promotional email. There were not many rooms available since they were pretty booked. So we booked 6/23/14-6/25/14 a... More

The management and proprietors have no compassion. We had stayed in the guest cottages during summer for several years without incident so I recommended it to my sister for her anniversary. She bought a special promotion advertised for February. Her dog became very ill the week before the scheduled visit so she asked management (Ms. Rothberg) for an extension into... More

Wonderful Victorian ambiance if a little tired. The porch/veranda is lovely and in the shade during the hottest part of the day. We loved the breakfast routine. The evening before you check off what you want. It is delivered to you in your room, in the lounge, or on the porch. If you are looking for a B&B or a... More

The hotel is tired and needs to up its service. Our greeting was a front staircase matt with a large hole in it. The bathroom had cracked tiles, the breakfast is a joke. Sorry they ruined what should have been a lovely stay. The best service was from the valet.

My Aunt and I visited the Virginia Hotel, in the Pink Cottage, from May 26th through the 29th. things went wrong from the moment we entered our rooms. Lose door knob, noisy air conditioner, incomplete coffee set up, cheap furniture and no telephone in the rooms. Never had dinner in the Ebbitt room because we had to wait 20 minutes... More
