“Great Easter weekend away!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Booked 4 days prior to the Holiday weekend, only 2 rooms left, so not much to choose from. Ended up with a room with a bathroom. Very small, pretty tight and we aren't very big people, but yet served the purpose for a 2 night stay in the heart of everything! Parked the car Friday and didn't get back in until Sunday to drive home. Amanda at the front desk was so helpful and friendly. Would stay at the Star Inn again, but will book early enough to get a bigger room.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable, especially the bed! Just a couple of minor problems......the wind was howling and the rooms were a little chilly, and the bedroom TV was frozen onto some cable message that I couldn't clear. That wasn't important to me, as compared to the level of customer service provided! I let the desk in Congress Hall know that I couldn't find a hair dryer, and the gal appeared at the door of my room five minutes later with a brand new dryer in her hand! The major deficiency was I couldn't get the alarm clock to work! Despite the minor setbacks, I loved the Star, and really appreciated being given a first floor room! I look forward to returning to Cape May, and to staying in Congress Hall or The Star!

Room Tip: If you can climb one set of stairs, try to get the second floor of The Star, as I understand there a...

This was our second stay at the Star Inn. Our first stay was in the actual Inn and our second stay was in a second floor motel suite (great view of ocean). We found the room to be comfortable and clean and would definitely book again in the future. We took advantage of their spring promotion and enoyed a $20.00 credit toward our breakfast at the Blue Pig (enjoyed the real fireplace on a soggy March day). As another visitor noted; great value for the money spent.

We took advantage of an off-season weekend offer, and enjoyed the 2nd floor suite in the hotel. The two rooms were just right, with a kitchen/living room and good-sized tv (as opposed to the microscopic one in the bedroom, which my wife thought was a computer monitor). It really was a pleasant stay, with proximity to the beach, as well as Congress Hall, where we enjoyed the fire and people-watched. As another commenter has noted, this is not the Ritz, but it is cozy and comfortable, and made for a reasonably-priced winter escape.

I've been here one time before, and it is always clean! The location couldn't get any better, right in town in the middle of everything! It also is a great value for what you get! Blue pig tavern is great too!

Had a great Valentine's Day weekend at the Star Inn. Wow, this place is so underrated. We stayed in the inn, which had a B&B type feel. The coffee shop was closed for winter, but we like being away from all the commotion of Congress Hall. The room was well kept and had a great smell of plain ole clean. The size of the room was just right with some room to move around the super comfortable king bed. There was a wall mounted flat screen TV/DVD. Bathroom was also clean and adequately sized. I would have preferred a better shower head, but I think it was a water saver. The reservation gave us full access to Congress Hall. It was winter so there wasn't much to take advantage of. The fitness center is small, but probably gets no use in the summer. The Inn has off street parking on site. Great location! It's half a block from Washington St Mall and about 1 block to the beach. The one and only negative was that our town view was really no more that view of a back of a few buildings. Honestly though who cares. We'll probably stay here more often now that we've found the place.

We've been going to Cape May for years and have often wondered about the Star Inn. We had a chance to stay this past weekend and it was lovely. We stayed in the motel on the 2nd floor and fell in love with the hotel. I loved the decor and the amenities. We already booked the hotel again for the summer! We would highly recommend the Star Inn!
