Fantastic service and splendid hotel. We were impressed and will return for sure. The hotel staff was very attentive. They provide free set up if beach chaise lounges and chairs and umbrellas. No cost for that service. Beautiful beach. Quaint hotel beautifully appointed. Great choice for a long weekend or week long stay.

The rooms are beautiful, spacious and clean. The restaurant, The Ebbitt Room, was exquisite. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We will be back again and again. Unfortunately, trying to get a reservation is the challenge.

This is a beautiful small hotel with a private beach club. Adults only. Luxuriously appointed rooms. We stayed for 3 nights. Upon checking in "free valet" was not around. Took a while to figure that out. The air conditioning in our room only worked during the daytime. I didn't sleep for 2 nights and then they put a window unit... More

If you're looking for a "Boutique" style hotel that is perfectly situated near the ocean, shopping, and restaurants - then this is it. My husband and I decided on a last minute trip to Cape May to celebrate the completion of my training as a plastic surgeon. Fortunately for us, The Virginia Hotel had a last minute cancellation, and we... More

What a gem in every way possible - location, facilities, service, cleanliness. We were lucky to get a last minute reservation at the Virginia last week. The room on the 3rd level was very quiet.

My daughter and I stayed two nights and absolutely loved the charming hotel and it's very accommodating and wonderful staff. The location, food and the room exceeded my expectations. We loved the beach tent rental too! We were so sad to leave, but will definitely return.
