“Great Stay - Warm Service, Fantastic Restaurant, and Great Location”
Reviewed 13 June 2010

Loved Carol Villa. Very accommodating, child friendly, and located a hop, step and a jump from the beach, restaurants, some light souvenir shopping, and a mini golf course! Friendly staff, breakfast is included at a fantastic restaurant downstairs. Parking is included at a parking lot a ways away, but we were able to find metered parking on the street in front - about 25 cents per hour or something similar. It's pricey, but most good places in Cape May are. Cape May in general is a wonderful getaway, only 2.5-3.0 hours from NYC, with some great restaurants and a long boardwalk for biking and walking. Highly recommend this as a spot to getaway.

Location, comfort, ease, fine food, good people. There's nothing spectacular about Carroll Villa but it's all good. The street is probably the most picturesque in Cape May, and Carroll Villa is easy walking distance to everything. The Mad Batter breakfast is excellent, though we tried other restaurants for other meals, just to have a broader experience. Bed was comfy, room not huge but ample and interestingly decorated, shower a bit weak but who cares? Definitely will return.

Very happy with our stay. Staff was very nice. Room was comfortable. There is a bit of a walk to the free parking but we expected this.

Had a great stay at the Carroll. We had a Queen BR, which was very clean and comfortable. Best feature was the location, 1 block to the beach and 1 to the downtown shops and bars. In addtion, we got a $30 voucher for the "Mad Batter" restuarant, whcih is just outside the hotel, which has an AMAZING breakfast ! Great time in Cape May.

We just stayed at the Carroll Villa over Memorial weekend with our 2 young children. The staff was very accomodating and helped us to find a fabulous babysitter. In addition, when my youngest was ill, the housekeeper laundered his pajamas unsolicited -- very much above and beyond. The restaurant also caters well to both couples and families. They have a solid children's menu, a wide range of options for adults etc. and a very kind staff. The only downside was the fact that parking is a bit of a distance away -- but since they have a loading distance across the street and they provide parking, it was not that much of an inconvenience. The villa is very centrally located -- 1/2 block from beach, and 1 block from the center of town -- very convenient! Overall, we had a great time and very much appreciated the attention of the staff. FYI, our favorite adult-oriented local restaurant is Bank Street -- truly a gem (worthy of gourmet foodies) and worth every penny.

You do park down the street in a lot, but once you are at the Carroll Villa you do not need your car. We went to the beach (towels supplied), walked on the boardwalk, visited shops on Beach Ave, shopped in the pedestrian mall, all just a couple of minute walk from the Carrol Villa. We asked people in town to suggest places to eat and the Mad Batter was always on the list. Mark, and the staff are very helpful and fun. After seeing so many B&B's on line and then seeing them in person, I would definitley stay at the Carrol Villa again. The big difference for us was food/entertainment and location.
