I had a wonderful experience at The Star! The concierges were helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The privileges at the pool at Congress Hall across the street were lovely. Conveniently located to restaurants, the beach, and shopping. I would definitely return!

Having stayed at Colton Court for the last few years, the Star was a big improvement! The room was comfortable, but the best part was the use of Congress Hall amenities. We had a spectacular beach day in a rented tent and enjoyed their lovely pool. We also enjoyed the food at the Blue pig. We couldn't afford to stay... More

The Star is the perfect spot for a family getaway in Cape May. Just a block from the beach and the downtown shopping & restaurant district, The Star offers fun decor, convenience, and a great escape. Twice-daily housekeeping ensures a comfortable stay, and access to all of the amenities at Congress Hall, including two pools and beachside chair service, means... More

I stayed at the Star Inn last week for a night with my significant other. I'd admired it from afar while staying in Cape May in the past, and was thrilled to get to stay there this time! Check-in was easy and fast, and they allowed us in an hour and a half earlier than the guaranteed 4pm. The room... More

We stayed in the carriage house, nice and roomy, clean. The town of cape may was great. I will say the area does not have a lot for kids, more for adults who like the quiet beaches and victoria home. Starr Inn is part of the Congress Hall hotel across the street, you get to use all the things they... More

I stayed at the Star with my husband & 9 week old infant for a three day trip. The Star is styled very cool & modern and was a fantastic place for my family. There was plenty of room to accommodate all of our baby stuff & the rocking chairs on the porch were key for a fussy baby. It... More

Our family stayed here in April and it was the perfect fit for us. Master bedroom was separate from the main living area that had a pull-out couch. The sectional couch also had a long 'lounge' so that one of our kids used the couch and one slept on the lounge with another set of sheets that were quickly delivered... More

Really liked the Star. Our room, #6 on the 3rd floor, was very clean and quiet. The only complaint we had was that the bathroom fan was REALLY loud. Nice to have a view of the ocean while I drank my morning coffee.

We recently visited Cape May for the first time during our daughter's Spring Break. We chose The Star Inn & Motel based on location and shared amenities with neighboring palatial estate and hotel; Congress Hall. Our 1-bd "Efficiency Suite" was perfect for our family of 3 and we could not be happier with the service we received, particularly when our... More

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the Star Inn. My family and I (kids aged 9, 11 and 14) stayed here for one night during our East Coast Spring Break trip. This place was fantastic!
