5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

...made our stay at the Caroll Villa very nice. The Mad Batter does a great breakfast and an even better Bloody Mary. The rooms are very clean, the decor quaint and the staff are very kind. It was our first time to the Carol Villa and to Cape May, and I can say with certainty it will not be our last.

My boyfriend and I found Caroll Villa via a Living Social deal. I'm so glad, because it brought us to a wonderful B & B that we may have never found. Check in was so easy. Jill was a wealth of information and very helpful. Our room was adorable, very clean and QUIET. Loved all of the antique furniture. Also, the B&B was very centrally located, between the ocean and Washington Mall. Tons of great places to eat and drink. Took a trolley tour to learn about Cape May's incredible history - highly recommend that. The only thing we didn't get to do was ride in a horse and buggy. Definitely will do that next time.

The Caroll Villa in the heart of the historic district in Cape May, NJ was quaint and accommodating. The people were gratious and they made it was a wonderful relaxing time in Cape May. We purchased a package from "Living Social" and it turned out to be a great value.

Once again the Carroll Villa Hotel provided a fabulous experience for 18 students attending the Mel Stabin Workshop. Everyone has been pleased with the accommodations, food, and the staff. They are all excited about doing it again next year!

Green Features: Love the fact they r so conscious of protecting the environment.

We had a very pleasant and nice stay at this bed and breakfast. We purchased a package on Travelzoo and got a good deal. The rooms were so quaint and cute. We had a delicious breakfast and several martini's at the bar before dinner. Would stay again,

Our stay at the Carroll Villa hotel was a real value. The location can't be beat - just a block from the ocean, and the breakfast that was part of the package was excellent (in the adjoining Mad Batter restaurant). Most of the regular rooms were already reserved for the date we had to be there, but they told us they had a room with a separate bathroom available. Indeed, the entire bathroom was exclusively for our use (we had the key) but it was located all the way down at the other end of the hall from our room. A little unusual, but the bathroom was nice. I believe all of the rest of the rooms had connected bathrooms.

The people running the Carroll Villa hotel were very nice and provided us with whatever we needed. The bed was comfortable and we slept very well there. I am sure that during the beach season, this entire area is really hopping, but we enjoyed a quiet stay during the off-season.

We would return to the Carroll Villa Hotel.
