“Spring getaway”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

We only stayed one night, had dinner and breakfast at the Mad Batter, which was wonderful. The location is great (1/2 block to beach) and other attractions were very close. Overall a great visit to Cape May. The staff very friendly and attentive.

My mom and I went to Cape May in April for a little mother daughter bonding time. Neither of us had ever been there. We had a great time and enjoyed staying at Carroll Villa. We loved the Happy Hour! We met some local folks and had some great conversation. Our room at the Carroll Villa was perfect with a nice large bathroom. Breakfast at the Mad Batter was delicious! Perfect eggs benedict! Would love to go back in season.

Last year we booked a special deal through Living Social which included 2 nights at Carroll Villa. Then along came Sandy. We were unable to reschedule within the time frame to get our deal. Kathi, the manager worked with me, understood our circumstances and gave me credit toward a future stay. We stayed there last weekend. It was a very unexpected and thoughtful surprise to find balloons and candy in our room, marking a special occasion I mentioned to Kathi in passing during our conversation months ago!
We stayed in room 20 in the annex,first floor with private porch. The room is adorable. Here's the down side. It's on the first floor of the annex. You walk through a door in front of the restaurant into a small alcove. The same alcove contains the stairwell to the rest of the annex rooms. The sound of footsteps up and down the stairs, conversation outside our door in the small space didn't do much for our sense of privacy.
The pillows on our bed were hard, but since we never asked for softer ones, I don`t know if that was an option. Next time we may bring our own, no great feat since we live in state.
The porch would be great in warmer weather. There's room for four and now and then a horse drawn carriage clip clops by.
Every meal at the Mad Batter on the premises is delicious. Probably the best breakfast of any bed and breakfast in town.
I would follow the tips offered by other reviewers when choosing a room.
I still highly recommend this place for their great location equidistant from the beach and Washington St. Mall, for their excellent service, fabulous restaurant and extreme thoughtfulness.

We had a wonderful time at the Carroll Villa B&B in Cape May from the moment we arrived until the sad moment when we had to check out. The room ( we were in no. 16) was so quaint and charming. There was a small sitting area and a nice large bathroom along with our queen size bed. We had a flat screen tv ( for those tv junkies - it was on the small side though). This B&B is on Jackson Street which is right down the block from the beach and also from Washington Mall area ( shopping / dining area). Upon arrival, we rec'd a wonderful greeting and lots of info from the woman in reception ( sorry I cant remember your name but you were fantastic!). This B&B has a restaurant attached called the Mad Batter which is excellent, nice sitting room with magazines, etc ( coffee in the am) and the location is excellent. It is along a street lined with other historic B&Bs. We had breakfast in the hotel which was fabulous plus the wait service was excellent as well. Oh the room also has a small fridge so you can keep some snacks, drinks which is nice.
This place is also very romantic for couples. Great wknd getaway!
A quick tip - we went off season so there was no issue with parking b/ c the meters were turned off. It may be an issue in the summer season though. Not sure if B&B offers parking.

Room Tip: Room 16 was a nice size with a very large bathroom and a small sitting area.

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at the Carroll Villa Hotel. We are glad that you found Room 16 to your liking and enjoyed your breakfast. We try our best to accommodate all of our guest and want you to know that we do have access to a municipal parking lot during the time the meters are an issue. We provide our guest with a free parking permit for the lot and it is a charming 8 minute stroll back to the hotel from the lot. Thanks again for your welcome comments.

We were excited to yet again, spend our anniversary at the Carroll Villa. We stayed two nights and didn't want to leave. From our arrival, until our departure, our needs were met at every turn. We were fortunate to stay in a recently renovated room that we said will become the room we request going forward as it was perfect! The Carroll Villa's location to the beach and shopping can't be beat! Can't wait to return!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor of the annex (room 34). Very large room and out of the way from the main...

From the time we arrived every staff member was nicer than the next. The food was delicious and the room we stayed in was charming. My close friend and I had terrific girl time away. We wished we had stayed one more night. We had a package with groupon and felt like we got the deal of the century. Enjoyed the wineries and convenience of where we were located in Cape May.Only downside was the parking. We will be back next year to celebrate our April birthdays. Thank you Carroll Villa.

We recently spent 2 nights at the Carroll Villa Hotel in Cape May and what a treat! You cannot beat the charm of Jackson Street or the warmth of this Historic Hotel. The staff is engaging and friendly and our room (#21) was lovely with even a peek of the ocean. Breakfast both mornings was delish and we loved the energetic vibe of the Blue Bar at Happy Hour. Thanks to Mark, Pam and staff for a most memorable getaway...we thoroughly enjoyed our time with you and hope to return in-season!
