I bought a living social deal for this trip. It was our first b&b experience and we had a great time. Room was clean and comfortable. Front desk staff, Kathi, was very helpful. Enjoyed the bar for happy hour and the dining room for a great dinner and breakfast. Jen, the bartender in the evening and our breakfast waitress was terrific. Carol was our dinner waitress and she was very attentive to our needs.

Room Tip: We were off season and our deal was limiting room wise. We were satisfied.

We had a nice relaxing stay here. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Service was very good. We used a living social coupon and took advantage of the amenities offered. There is a restaurant on the premises and the food was very good. The breakfasts were fantastic, enjoyed a few spicy Bloody Marys. The weather was pleasant for November. If you are a guest, you get 30% off your dinner bill. Walking distance to the Mall. There was no trouble parking at this time because the parking meters end in november 1.

Room Tip: Our room was fine, however it was on the 3rd floor, which we requested. So if you don't like st...

I have stayed at Carroll Villa for contemplative weekend trips, workshops, and with my family. The location is perfect - it's right in the heart of Cape May, and steps from the town's main shopping promenade. If you are in the mood to browse and find something new or interesting, this location is for you.

It's also only steps to the beach, and the ocean view from the sand is beautiful - classic Atlantic Ocean, for those into capturing a morning sunrise. That might explain why everyone, from the owners to the maids, are polite, charming and efficient. I've stayed in multiple rooms, and all have been lovely.

The attached restaurant, where you have breakfast included, is called the Mad Batter and is one of the best restaurants at the South Jersey shore. Their Eggs Benedict is the best I've ever had, and the orange juice is fresh squeezed. Happy hour and dinners are equally good.

Room Tip: Rooms in the annex or on the second floor are quieter.

Everyone in Cape May was very friendly and helpful. We were there for a short honeymoon stay. Carroll Villa, everyone we dealt with so friendly and helpful. The room was perfect with the older victorian styles with a modern mix. Mad Batter foood and employees we couldn't of asked for anything better. We didn't run into any problems with anything or anyone there. Perfect location, not even a block away from the beach...

Room Tip: #14 was perfect...

Very charming B&B. Great central location. Nice extras (wine in room, winery tastings, free breakfast). Didn't eat at Mad Batter as the Fall menu wasn't exciting to us, but loved the breakfast! The service and friendliness of staff made it a very nice visit. Room was charming and clean. Definitely a great place to stay!

Room Tip: Our room was nice, but beware -- lots of stairs to climb!

Other reviewers are spot on: the Carroll Villa is charming, with updated amenities, great location and lots of perks (breakfast included at the Mad Batter, 30% discount on dinner, half-price Happy Hour). Our only issue was room size. Room #8 is billed as "cozy" and might be fine for some couples, but our thought was that it was the smallest room we'd ever booked. Tiny room, tiny bath--might better suited for a solo guest (or at least be aware before you book). Otherwise, great food at the Mad Batter, excellent service at the hotel, charming environment, and so close to the beach--all make for a terrific Cape May visit!

We just spent our 25th wedding anniversary there. Everything was superb. The owner and staff were so friendly. They surprised us with an Anniversary balloon and a book of poems. The room was so inviting and comfortable. The happy hour half price drinks were a nice touch, the bartenders were so pleasant. Both breakfast and dinner was OUT OF THIS WORLD- DELISH!!!!! All the staff made this such a fantastic 25 for my husband and I. We will be back!!!!!!!
