I struggled with this review because we had been so disappointed with our stay at the Red Cottage (part of the Virginia Hotel) from the moment we walked in to the cottage. I usually just write an honest review a few days after so I can sort out my thoughts but this time I called and left a message with... More

Judy J, Thank you for choosing to stay at the Red Cottage and for taking the time to share your review. It was such a pleasure speaking with you on the phone and I understand your frustration and please know that all the issues have been addressed and what you experienced certainly is not indicative of the level of service...

We had a quick overnight stay in the off season but I would go back in a heartbeat. Check in was a breeze, the front desk staff was really pleasant and efficient. We brought our stuff up to our room. It was on the third floor, walking upstairs wasn't a big deal but we weren't carrying much with us. The... More

We like the Virginia Hotel - the decor, the porch and the rooms are well done. The biggest disappointment was the Internet - it did not work well in our room. (Works on the porch and in the lobby). The shower is quirky and the rooms are a bit small. Good for a couple of nights - not sure about... More

We stayed one night (Oct. 16th) on the third floor of the Red Cottage which is part of the Virginia Hotel and across the street from it. The Turret Suite occupies the entire third floor so it is private and quiet. Our suite had 2 bedrooms, a living room (with pull-out sofa bed, table&4chairs, small refrig, sink etc.), one small...

The Virginia is a lovely old Inn that is located perfectly within the center of Cape May, close to the beach. The building is beautiful and renovated tastefully; the bathroom was well done, too. our problem was the mattress/bed. we either had a very old or a very cheap (or a old and cheap) mattress (max. queen size - there...

We loved our (too short) stay at the Virginia. Located less than a block from the beach in the heart of lovely Cape May, the staff there was friendly and accommodating. Our room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable, and all the details were high quality. We had an excellent continental breakfast delivered to our room, which we sat out... More

I picked the Red Cottage Inn which is located across the street and affiliated with The Virginia Hotel. I picked this time of year to avoid the large crowd and enjoy the warm weather. The Virginia has a cozy atmosphere and appears well run. If you are expecting the charm of Cape May Inn or charm of a B&B the... More

I booked a stay at the Virginia Hotel in Cape May on a friend's recommendation, but I'm sorry I did. Had to park a couple of blocks away and schlep my own suitcase through the streets. Had to carry my stuff up to the third floor. No elevator, no valet, nobody to help. And let's say I'm fit, but I'm... More

Connie J Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I completely understand your frustration. We have a valet on duty daily until 10pm and I am so sorry that no one offered to assist you. Our building does not have an elevator and the steps can be difficult to navigate with luggage. In each room is a... More

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
