“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stayed here for only one night but would recommend it to anyone visiting. The rooms were small but clean and the bedding and towels were lovely. The complimentary goodies were better than more expensive hotels that I have stayed in and more generous. The blue pig across the road has a great breakfast too.

Stayed April 2014, traveled with friends

We recently stayed at The Star to celebrate my MILs birthday. We stayed in one of the Carriage House Suites, which has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, as well as a small kitchen area (we were able to bring a homemade carrot cake to keep in the fridge). There were 8 of us total: my in-laws stayed in one bedroom, my husband and I stayed in the other bedroom, my toddler stayed in our pack and play in our bedroom, and our other 3 kids (ages 6, 8, and 10) slept on the pull-out sofa in the living area.

The decor is wonderful, very simple and fresh. The linens are plush and the bath products are Aveda. The ocean view from our 3rd floor suite was super, and our balcony included 2 rockers and a double swing.

The price point for this suite, at least at this time of year, was incredible considering the proximity to the beach.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the mother hotel across the street, Congress Hall, choosing a few items from the gift shop and getting a good latte.

We also visited the hotel's restaurant, Blue Pig Tavern, for brunch before we left. The decor again is delightful and simple. The food was very tasteful.

I will definitely visit this hotel again. Excellent in so many ways!

I've stayed at several B and B's, hotels and motels in Cape May, and have to say that this was one of the nicest places I have stayed. We stayed in the suite, which was really nice. The bathroom was spotless and had been re-done in stainless. It was quiet, lovely and romantic. We brought wine and cheese and they stocked basic kitchen niceties. After visiting Congress Hall the main hotel I was really grateful we stayed at the Star Inn. It was much quieter, with more room amenities. We did hear our upstairs neighbors walking around, but it wasn't terribly bothersome and we appreciated the ability to roll our luggage directly from the parking lot into the room from the ground floor. Beds were large and comfy, and the little patio great.
Note that parking is a bit tricky and at least once we had to go to the other parking lot after returning for dinner.
I love the Star location as it is so close to the quiet end of the beach, but also so close to the pedestrian mall. I want to go back!

Room Tip: Suite ground floor convenient for luggage, but view may be better on second floor.

My husband and I chose Congress Hall (The Star Inn annex) for a weekend getaway. We can't wait to go back for a longer visit! The facility runs seamlessly and the staff is so professional. The food at The Ebbitt Grill and The Blue Pig rival the best of what we have sampled in New York and Philadelphia.

Room Tip: The Star Inn (across the street from Congress Hall) is a cozy annex with access to all the activity...

My family and I are still here while I am writing this review, and our experience has been wonderful. We wanted to get away from the NYC polar vortex so we ventured to southern New Jersey and were happy to see clean,snow free streets...my husband and I traveled with our 11yr old son and his best friend and we rented the 2bedroom/2bathroom cottage from Congress Hall (Congress Hall owns the Star Inn and many other hotels in Cape May)....the cottage is clean, spacious and well appointed with stainless steal refrigerator and stove,pots,plates,wineglasses & utensils. There is also a washer/dryer in one of the closets. it's winter so most businesses are closed for the season but, enough were open for us to have our needs met. We originally planned on staying for 2 nights but kept extending our stay for a total of 5 nights. Since whether prohibited swimming at the outdoor pool at congress the Front desk suggested the WildWood indoor acquatic center to swim which the boys enjoyed. Overall a wonderful break from snowstorms and busy NYC streets.

We needed to check in a day early for Congress Hall but no rooms were available. They had an efficiently suite available across the street at their Star. We decided to try it and were very happy we did! The efficiency suite had a large King bedroom, nice size living room with a flat screen tv. Very comfortable with a view of the ocean from the second floor. Convenient location, across the street from the ocean and Congress Hall. The bathroom was a little small but overall we really enjoyed this hotel and would go back. Great value!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in December and had an amazing time. It's right across the street from Congress Hall. As everyone else said, the "motel suites" are beautifully decorated in a retro fashion and updated with a mini fridge, microwave, pots and pans, coffee maker, etc. Here are some things of note:
-You have to check in across the street at Congress Hall
-Park anywhere in the lot or in the Congress Hall parking lot (near the flag pole).
-Free wifi
-Free use of Congress Hall gym
-King size bed in a separate room; pull out sofa bed in living room area.

You get to be in the town near everything but it's like staying at your own little apartment. We didn't hear any street noise or noise from other rooms. Truly a great value!
