My first visit to Cape May. Decided to go with the Carroll Villa based on the reviews and availablity. The hotel does make it clear about the parking situation, but its still a negative. Made check in and check out less than optimal. Next issue is the stairs. We knew there was no elevator and carrying our bags up to the 3rd floor wasn't an issue but we did see other groups that had some difficulties. The hotel should have someone available to help guests upon check in. Room was tiny. Bed was small. Stall shower was terrible, very small. Shower has shampoo, soap and condtioner in a three compartment dispenser, but I had no idea which was which bc there's no label. Kept forgetting to ask the desk. Seems insignificant but it was annoying. There's no outside area to sit and relax as the porch is used for the Mad Batter. Sitting areas of the property are worn down, I realize it's an old property but doesn't seem like much effort is made. Woke up one morning to find the house freezing, with all the windows opened on a cold rainy morning. The hotel is clean, staff is nice and the experience was not bad, but for the price charged I would expect better. Breakfast voucher is a big plus and breakfast is good.
