We went for a mid-week Spring Fling getaway. We've never stayed in Cape May before but loved the reviews of this hotel. We steer away from B & B's - don't really fancy socializing with and eating with strangers - so this place seemed perfect. Location was perfect - a few blocks to the beach ad a few blocks to shopping. We stayed in Room 4 - highly recommend it. It was clean, comfortable, comfy bed with lovely bed linens, and an incredible remodeled bathroom with a fabulous shower. There was even a small fridge. Check in was friendly and efficient, housekeeping staff were friendly and did a great job, as well. Our complimentary $30 breakfast voucher for the Mad Batter (on the property) more than covered our meals. We also enjoyed 30% off our dinners - we got twins filet mignons, and an item from the special menu - crabmeat, cheese & spinach wrapped in a puff pastry - to die for. Unfortunately, the weather was very cool & rainy so although we walked around town and visited some shops, we spent a lot of time at the hotel. Happy Hour is from 3 - 6 every day with reasonable priced drinks and a light snack menu. The bartenders were attentive and awesome and we met some friendly folks at the bar. There was entertainment every night, too. Every single employee went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. This hotel clearly cares about the guest experience and surpassed our expectations. We look forward to returning!!

This time we were lucky to stay in Room 14 which had an inviting king bed and luscious linens. The bathroom was re-designed and modern. The room overlooked historic Jackson Street. My husband and I truly enjoy the breakfasts which we typically have closer to lunch. It is convenient to walk downstairs to the great Mad Batter and enjoy a late breakfast. The location of this hotel can't be beat - walk to beach, main thoroughfare and shops.

We spent two nights there over the Easter weekend. The room was nice and the bed was really comfortable. The only downside to this was we took our two year old son with us. The bar had live music until 10.30pm on the first night which woke our son up several times.

Everything at the Carroll Villa Hotel was wonderful! The bed was incredibly comfortable, from the mattress to the sheets to the blankets and pillows! The Madbatter restaurant next door was extremely delicious! We had a fabulous time at the bar and listening to the live music. Everyone was so friendly! I hope to make this a yearly visit!

We stayed in room 6 at the Carroll Villa for a girls getaway. Our check in went incredibly smooth as David was so helpful. Due to limited parking David was kind enough to bring our luggage to our room. We received a $30 credit voucher for breakfast which we took advantage of both mornings and 30%of entrees which unfortunately we couldn't use on our appetizers. Our room was lovely and had 2 bottles of water waiting for us. Housekeeping was extremely efficient. The BB is old so unfortunately you can hear everything around you. The beds and sheets are very comfortable and the bathroom is updated. The k my negative, and I'm not too sure who would be responsible for it, is that my girlfriend for violently ill on our 1st morning. The evening before we were at the Mad Batter bar and she ordered a drink with pineapple juice. Her 1st one was made wrong so I tasted it and immediately said the pineapple juice tasted bad. The next drink "looked" correct so my girlfriend drank it. I took a slight sip and the pineapple juice still tasted off. Since we all aye the same thing, we assumed the pineapple juice caused her angst in the early morning hours. We reported it to the bartender who was our server the evening before, and he remarked that the container probably needed to be cleaned. Thankfully the pineapple incident was a minor blip and it didn't ruin our weekend. Cape May is lovely. The Carroll Villa is centrally located to the beach and shopping. I would highly recommend staying.

Another great stay in the lovely town of Cape May! We always enjoy our stay at the Carroll Villa. Every staff member at this hotel is friendly, helpful, and down to earth. The rooms are lovely, the food is excellent, and the Mad Batter bar area has live music 365 nights a year. Cape May has a lively and creative local music scene. We were happy to see The Squares and Andy Reeves again. You don't have to go anywhere else. It's all at the Carroll Villa -- including a killer craft beer menu!

Great place for a weekend getaway! This is our favorite spot. It was our second visit to the Carroll Villa Hotel and we will be back! Everyone is so nice the rooms are beautiful and the restaurant and bar are great as well.

We stayed at the Carroll Villa for our anniversary. We stayed in room #13, a corner king room with a partial ocean view. Very clean, quaint and our bed was comfortable. The Carroll Villa made our Anniversary special with their Spring Fling, a bottle of wine, 2 wine tastings, Trolley tour and a wonderful breakfast each morning at the Mad Batter.

My husband and I loved our stay at Carole Villa. This was our second time visiting there. The staff is fabulous and our room was terrific The Mad Batter is delicious. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner Gold stars to both Carole Villa and The Mad Batter!! Jodi & Barry
