Carroll Villa Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed for only 1 night over Christmas break - but it was a great getaway enjoyed everything about it! The room was great, the location was fantastic, the staff was friendly and attentive! We will definitely be back!

Even though it was freezing cold in Cape May we had a great time, and the hotel, restaurant and bar were really wonderful. The room was pretty big and had a nice view of the street and the beach, and the staff was warm and friendly. They had a great happy hour in the bar and the $30 voucher for breakfast is SO much better than sitting around a long table gumming down muffins with total strangers that you usually get in a B&B.

My husband and I wanted/needed a getaway that was not over the top, but quaint and decorated for Christmas.So, we decided Cape May, since we heard such wonderful things about this area, especially during the winter time. We walked around the area and felt as though we were in a winter wonderland with all the garland, lights, and etc. hanging on buildings and trees (all we needed was some snow). As I searched, and searched for Bed and Breakfasts, the Carroll Villa kept coming up in my searches. Needless, to say we booked to stay here and enjoyed every minute of it.The Carroll Villa Hotel is very quaint and cozy. The room was small (which is perfect if you are one to explore the sights and sounds of the town and don't plan on spending much time in the room), the room was clean, and the bathroom was pretty spacious as well. There isn't an elevator, due to how old it is, but we were more than capable of bringing our belongings up a few sets of stairs-nothing to complain about. Also, situated in the hotel is an impeccable restaurant called the Mad Batter- food here is outstanding for breakfast and dinner!! All I could say is that if you want to stay in a prime location of other hotels, restaurants, beach, and the mall; the Carroll Villa Hotel is where you want to stay. The hotel is in walking distance of just everything; you don't need your car unless you plan on seeing the lighthouse, breweries, or wineries in the area.

When staying in Cape May head to Jackson Street. Carroll Villa is perfectly situated between the beach and the Mall. And they may have the best breakfast in Cape May. And even better it comes with the price of admission, a $30 voucher for that best breakfast. My bride and I enjoyed a visit this past week. Our King room, on the third floor, beware those of older hearts, was totally satisfactory. It was clean, functional and comfortable, the bed was a joy to sleep on. Decoration was austere and spartan. We recommend this wonderful Hotel and restaurant.

The building was quaint, our room was small but nicely appointed with a large bathroom. No elevator because of the age of the building but we were ok walking up to the third floor with luggage. The hotel is located a block from the beach and nearby the shopping areas. Nice staff and it was handy having the restaurant and bar right downstairs.

We stayed in the Carroll Villa hotel and it was very clean and very quaint. The hotel is an historic landmark as is most of the town of Cape May. We had complimentary breakfasts and while we didn't eat dinner in the restaurant we did enjoy the bar.

This stay was just a 1 niter in December to explore Cape May during Christmas. The staff is just awesome, helpful and super friendly. The hotel is historic and has it's own fun quirky personality. Our room was very small (but had all we needed)and we would not have wanted to do a long term (more than 1 night) in the small space. There is no onsite parking but we were able to park free less than 1 block away. Location is everything; we were less than a 3 minute walk to the historic downtown area, within 10 minutes of driving to the Cape May light house, WW II watch tower and Sunset Beach. We received a restaurant credit with stay which more than covered our wonderful breakfast (including fresh squeezed orange juice) for two. I would be happy to stay again, my thanks again to the friendly staff.

We always stay at the Carroll Villa in December so we can enjoy all the things that Cape has to offer that time of year. .. trolley tour. Hospitality night at the Mall Shops, dinner at the Merion Inn, Happy HOur at the Villa Winter Wonderland at Congress Hall and SO much more. our Christmas gift to ourselves.. what a treat.

This is a wonderful hotel to stay at!! The location is wonderful, so close to Washington Street Mall. They have a great happy hour from 3-6 and the staff are very accommodating and friendly. The food is great and the breakfast is the best in Cape May!!

This is a great hotel with one drawback: there is no onsite parking. We arrived around 5pm on a Sat evening, we unloaded our bags and then drove around for around 15 mins to find a parking space. We did find one a short walk from the hotel; but we we did not need the car until we were ready to leave. The hotel is a short walk from the beach and short walk from the main shopping area with some great restaurants. Our room at the hotel was small but comfortable. And I give props to the shower, plenty of pressure and hot water. The bar in the hotel was good and the restaurant was great. They give you a voucher for breakfast worth $30 and a discount towards dinner. We had a great time and would definitely go back
