“Serenity”
Reviewed October 6, 2008

This B&B was comfortable and clean, plus the location (half block from the beach and half block from the shops and restaurants) was just perfect for our walks. Their country breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed the fantastic dinner at their restaurant as well (Mad Batter). Came back from a stroll through the mall of stores and settled in at the bar for happy hour. All staff members were polite and helpful. We were able to enjoy a very relaxing two days and would definitely go back to the Carroll Villa again.

The Carroll Villa is a fantastic place to stay in Cape May. We loved every minute we were there. I would rate it higher than 5 if I could. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Our room was beautiful, quilt on the bed, flowered wallpaper. embroidered shower curtain, flat screen TV, and a beautiful view of Jackson Street. The breakfast was terrific, $15 per person each day to order whatever we wanted. And a 30% discount for dinner was also great. Even better was eating breakfast and dinner on the front porch. The only downside was parking a few blocks away. But that is true anywhere in the historic district of Cape May, parking is very limited. We would definitely stay there again. We loved it and so will you.

My husband and I stayed at Carroll Villa for our anniversary - our first trip to Cape May. We loved it! The room was cozy and very clean, the staff was friendly, the shared spaces were nice & welcoming, the inclusion of breakfast (or lunch) was wonderful, and the B&B is in a great location (very close to beach, restaurants, and shopping areas). Breakfast at the Mad Hatter was really good & they had a great happy hour special at the newly renovated bar.

I stayed at the Carroll Villa Bed and Breakfast from September 22 to September 25.
My room was on the 3rd floor of the place, it was facing the front of the hotel, very quiet, with two windows, it has a ceiling fan and light, it was really nice.
The parking was 4 blocks away, but I was disappointed that there was no security for the parking lot.
The food was very good for Breakfast and Dinner.
If you had an entree for Dinner, you will get 30% off the dinner, but they requested that you make reservation, and I could not see the point of this, because I was one person, you have to go to the desk to get a discount coupon, to give to the waitress.
I would recommend, the Vegetable Wellington for Dinner.

I stayed at the carroll villa hotel for two nights in August. Overall, the room was clean, nice, and a good value. The absolute highlight of the stay was the breakfast, which is included. The breakfast was outstanding. I would definitely stay here again.

The meals were very good. The room was comfortable. The bed was very firm. The location was great. The beach was wonderful and just a short walk away. Same for shops.

Just completed another weeks stay and it is everything we look forward to in a beach trip. Very reasonable rates which include a full breakfast which I guarantee is the best you will ever have. It is the breakfast that is most famous and well known in Cape May (standing room only for people waiting to get in) which distinguishes our B and B from all others. The most friendliest crew you will ever meet and it is so wonderful they remember you year after year. Mark (one of the owners) treated us to a drink at their newly renovated bar during happy hour. How nice it is to walk a half a block off the beach and grab a drink! Rooms are great and we never have an issue as our stay is SEAMLESS. Cant say enough but looking forward to coming down again the same week in August for a week in 2009.
