Reviewed 30 May 2009

Always looking for a new place to explore for our anniversary. This was 21 years & we've never been to Cape May. The drive down from upstate NY took 5 hours & was super easy, we noticed traffic in the other direction though & should have been forwarned! Took 8 hours to return-note: look for other route than Garden State north, at least we had a book on CD to keep us amused. After unloading the car at the Carroll Villa hotel (B&B) had to park in lot 10 minute walk away, but never really needed our car except to go to Diamond beach & really shouldn't have wasted our time. The room was charming, and the staff was very helpful & friendly. The hotel is right in the center of the village, 30 second walk to the beach - great location. Happy hour with fun martini's & the restaurant out back in the garden dining area are great, we had breakfast there each morning ($30 certificate included for breakfast for each night you stay). Also had dinner there one night (30% off for hotel guests), and the other night went to dinner at 410 Bank St. (Loved it!!) 410 Bank St. is bring your own bottle or they can sell you a bottle from the local winery, but no bar. Food & presentation were amazing, we took pictures of our dinner. One day we walked through the charming shops, and the next day we walked all day - 10 miles along the beach. We walked to the lighthouse & climbed it, and hit all the nature walks along the way (paths on boardwalks through marshes). You have to buy a beach tag $5/day each person (cheaper if longer stay) to walk on the beach, but pays to keep the beaches clean & protected. You can buy them from the people that sit at the entrance to any pier. It was very relaxing & fun, and I can't say enough about the nice people at the hotel. On the way out we had lunch at the Lobster House (where you first enter Cape May - at the boat docks) you can get fresh fried seafood or around back to the raw bar for steamers & crab. Fun. Also stopped at Wildwood (10 minutes away) just to see it. We walked for a bit on the boardwalk - totally a teenage wonderland! 2 mile boardwalk behind all the buildings with arcade games, food, t-shirt shops, amusment park rides & free beach in the middle. If we had the kids, maybe would have spent a day there.

This was a perfect get-away following my daughter's college graduation. We just needed some time to unwind. The weather didn't cooperate, but the accommodations could not have been better. The room was larger than I expected, though the bathroom was tiny. It was beautifully decorated and very clean. The fridge in the room was stocked with bottled water that was a great idea! The food at the Mad Batter is always good - and we took advantage of the nightly happy hour deals at the bar. The location is excellent. We would love to come back to visit!

We have stayed at the Carroll Villa for the past 17 years and would highly recommend a stay next time you're in Cape May. Nothing bad to say. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly, and the food at the Mad Batter is great with breakfast included with your stay.

Enjoyed staying at the Carroll Villa. Close to the beach and shops, quaint old house, friendly staff and very nice rooms. The price was a little high for off season, sunday/monday night stay(stayed there in mid march) given that the restaurant was closed and the bar only open on weekends. But we had a wonderful time nonetheless and a full breakfast was included.

We were in town just for the night to attend our sons graduation from the coast guard bootcamp. It was clean, comfortable and close to the base. The Mad Batter restaurant was delish. The fish and chips were to die for! Not to mention the Martinis which were greatly appreciated after a long flight from California. We were givin a coupon for a discount on lunch the next day and we actually drove back in the rain and enjoyed another great meal.

  • Liked — Very safe and friendly
  • Disliked — A little Norman Bates Creepy but cool
