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

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.

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
