We stayed from 3/12-3/14/14. Upon checking in we asked where we should park. We were told it was off-season and we could park anywhere even the loading zone. We parked directly across the street from the hotel each day. Upon check out we were surprised to have gotten a ticket for parking in a loading zone. We brought this to...

We last stayed overnight in Cape May when we were engaged in 1987, but hadn't been back for more than a day trip since. We were looking for a respite from winter that was not a far drive from Northern Jersey but still felt like a mini-vacation, and remembered Cape May. Finding lodging was little difficult as not many of...

Carroll Villa was wonderful, staff was great and very accommodating. Mad Batter is always wonderful, fantastic breakfast and wait staff, great bar and bartender. Did not have dinner, just "bar food". Very quiet, relaxing visit. We visited with Groupon offer, great deal. Everything was perfect.

Our stay at the Carroll Villa Hotel and adjoining restaurant,The Mad Batter, was a most welcomed get away from the harsh reality of winter. I think it's the friendly atmosphere, really good food and excellent vibes at the bar that made this weekend so special. The skylights let in maximum light during the day and the music at night warms...

We are sorry for the confusion over your reservation and for the distress it caused. We are also sorry for the heat inconvenience however all of our individual heaters do have knobs on them to adjust the output. Perhaps...
