Reviewed July 25, 2014

We just got back from spending two nights at the Carroll Villa Hotel and overall, it was a good experience. The location is perfect and everything is within walking distance. Parking is not available on-site and you are required to park about a half mile away. We timed the walk from the parking lot to the hotel and it took 10 minutes. If you walk briskly, you could probably make the walk in 6-7 minutes. The hotel staff was very friendly and the room was very clean. We stayed in room 13 and it's a great room with plenty of space. You can see the beach from one window and historic Jackson from another window. The only negative feedback is that the bathroom is very small, especially the shower. The bed was also very uncomfortable because it sags in the middle. A new mattress would make this room perfect! We highly recommend the Mad Batter for breakfast and the $30 vouchers are more than enough for breakfast for two people. We would definitely stay here again and recommend the hotel to family and friends. We would just recommend that you inquire about the mattress in room 13 :).

Room Tip: Inquire about the age of the mattress in room 13.

We took advantage of a midweek opening before the 4th of July holiday. As always the service was great, happy hour was happy, the entertainment was very good. We ate there as usual and the quality was great. If there was a drawback the breakfasts were too large.

We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary in Cape May and stayed at the Carroll Villa. it is a very charming bed and breakfast. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and attentive. The food in their restaurant, The Mad Batter, is 5 star! We stayed two nights and had all our meals there. The beach is just a 2 minute walk down the street. We definitely would stay there again.

We enjoyed the great breakfasts (Included) out on the porch and a delicious discounted dinner. Bed was very comfortable. Small attractive room was fine. Staff often asked if we needed anything and all were very helpful. Great location for people watching and enjoying the local atmosphere. Close to beach, shops, entertainment. Our 35th anniversary will always be a wonderful memory in part because of CVH.

Room Tip: We chose a standard bed which is fine for us.

We used 2 Groupons to stay for 2 nights, which included breakfast in the Mad Batter (so delicious!), 2 free mimosas or bloody marys, 2 wine tasting tours, 1 microbrewery tour and 2 trolley tours. We had a wonderful 30th anniversary celebration! Room 13 was beautifully decorated, although the mattress was sagging and uncomfortable. Perfect central location, 1/2 block from beach and Washington St. mall. We were surprised to find a bottle of wine in the room, compliments of the hotel. It was a nice anniversary surprise.

Room Tip: 3rd floor was quiet but tough to climb all those steps

We only stayed one night, but it was great! The room was clean bright and comfortable. We had a great dinner and a wonderful breakfast at the Mad Batter downstairs. The bar had live entertainment. And it all was centrally located 1/2 block from the beach. Would go back any time

Although we thought it overpriced, we enjoyed our stay very much. Our room was very comfortable & cozy with decor that was well arranged. Room #13 had a peek-a-boo view of the ocean, which is just a half block away. In the other direction, you are only a block from excellent shopping with restaurants in both directions. OR you can just eat on site at the Mad Batter restaurant which was always above average! No on site parking though. You will have to walk 7 minutes for the free parking which the hotel provides. Wasn't a big deal BUT you should be aware of this minor inconvenience. All in all, we would be happy to stay at the Carroll Villa again....

Room Tip: Room #13 is a corner room and has a peek a boo view of the ocean!

We are glad you found your room comfortable and cozy and that you appreciated being only a half block to the ocean and a half block to the shops. I am afraid that nothing will ever change the parking situation. We hope that you will stay with us again very soon. Jill, Reservation Clerk
