Bought a Groupon for a 2 night midweek stay. Room in the Annex 2nd Floor was small but clean and served our needs as we were not interested in spending the days in our room. The voucher for breakfast was a real plus as the meals were delicious. Enjoyed drinks during happy Hour at the bar in the Mad Batter on site. Easy walking distance to a couple of restaurants we enjoyed for dinner each night (Blue Pig Tavern and Alathea's). The vouchers for the "Trolley" tour proved fun as well. Great deal, great time!

We purchased a groupon for a overnight room, the room was very clean, we had our own bathroom which had everything in it. the room had a HD Tv with full cable and wi-fi. The staff was very friendly and helpful, we were suppose to get a bottle of wine in the room when it wasn't there they gave us one and apologized for it not being in the room. The only negative thing was the bed was a little uncomfortable. The room came with $30.00 off breakfast at the Mad Batter and Mimosas, which was delicious.If your in Cape May give them a try you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are good

We purchased a $99 certificate through Travelzoo.It included a room overnight and breakfast.It also included wine tastings and a trolley tour.Dinner at the Mad Batter restaurant within the B&B was 30 percent off.Food was excellent at both dinner and breakfast. We spent happy hour in the cocktail lounge and after dinner we went back for drinks and music.We had an enjoyable stay even though the weather was not the best.We definitely will be back

This bed and breakfast Caroll Villa Hotel( the Mad Batter) had excellent food and wonderful choices. The room was spotless and the shower gel and shampoo dispenser was very cool. It was my birthday and a balloon and salt water taffy were left on my bed by the management. Everyone was friendly and I definitely would recommend it if a bed and breakfast is on your list of things to do in Cape May. Within walking distance of the mall and beach.

Room Tip: I had a room on the third floor but at the top of the steps and it was nice. There was no view. I wo...

The woman at the front desk was so rude on MULTIPLE occasions we interacted with her. Just a bad bad attitude. She was annoyed we asked a question and at one point raised her hand to quiet us down from asking a question. So rude. The room looked amazing .. in the online photos on their website. It was not so in person. Very small, in need of good cleaning and the most uncomfortable bed ever. There was noise outside our window all night - did not get any sleep. Not going there again. Wanted to like it but for that kind of money we can do so much better.

Dear AgataCl: Please accept my apology if I offended you -it was not my intention. The reason I raised my hand was to let you know I was on the phone taking a reservation. Its really hard for guests that approach the desk to know that we are using an ear piece and are on the phone with other guests. I meant no disrespect. Kathi

The Carroll Villa was a great place to stay. It was exactly what we needed. It was right near the beach (less than a block away) and very close to the promenade. The room was clean, on the small side but we didn't plan on staying inside anyway. The bed was comfortable, and the shower was good. The Inn has a restaurant on the first floor which they provide a 30% discount if you are staying there, and the food was delicious! We got apps, entrees, and dessert and it was all very delicious. The staff was friendly as well. Over all great time! I would definitely stay again.

Green Features: They had a program that they recycled the hand soap in the bathroom by donating it to countries in need of soap.

I am Always hesitant about groupon deals - this was completely worth it. First off, the location is perfect - right by the main shopping area and a block from the beach. The house is old but very clean and beautiful. I had room 23 which is small but clean, with a big flat screen tv and modernized. I didn't think id be impressed with the room but I was even though it's tiny. There was no real view but Thats okay. The mad batter restaurant had the best loaded fries I ever had. We also had dinner there which wasn't really crowded but the food was good. The breakfast was MUCH better and you can eat right on the outside deck. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful, especially the lady at the front desk I wish I remembered her name. I have already recommended this to friends and hope to see you again. Thanks for a perfect stay - keep up the great hospitality. I can tell you take pride in your place.
