“light sleeper”
Reviewed 28 March 2005

If you are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you. We were up late one night with people talking in the lobby and walking back and forth between rooms. It is an old house converted with thin walls. It was very cute though, and convenient to a lot of things to do.

What can I say? The Star Inn has hit a homerun in Cape May, NJ. Their impeccable service, gorgeous accomodations and detail-oriented presentation outshine ANY hotel/motel/inn or B&B. The 2 bedroom carriage house we stayed in was on the second floor (no elevator, though). The decor was right out of "House Beautiful!" Huge flat screen tv w/ DVD and VCR players, hardwood floors, velour couch, full kitchen with all the amenities, 2 breathtaking bedrooms (one with a private balcony); tremendous living room area w/ private balcony, 2 bathrooms (I miss a tub bath)...shower only w/ top-of-the-line complimentary toiletries (Avena brand). I will only stay here when I visit Cape May. You have to stay here to believe such a place exists ... especially in a seaside community. You might expect to see this sort of "class" in NYC or LA...surprise...you can experience right here in Capr May, NJ! Excellent job!

The best! Whenever we want a quiet getaway to the shore, room 6, the oceanview front room on the top floor at the Star Inn beckons again and again. This little unassuming yellow house is the nicest place to stay in Cape May! No two rooms are alike, but they all share 4-star amenities like HEAVENLY beds, DVD players, room service, and internet data ports. The friendly folks down at the complimentary coffee shop & bakery downstairs make it an even sweeter deal at the shore - for about half the price of Congress Hall next door! Last August, an oceanview room in the main building cost about $450-$500 per night, while room 6 (with the same view) cost about $275. In the off season, main building ocean rooms go for about $315, while room 6 cost us $150. However, the Star is still just a little yellow house by the sea, with no elevator and no wheelchair access. You will, however, have a grand time at Congress Hall's shining sister!

The Star is shining! My family and I stayed here last week. It is so great. Beautiful decor, just renovated and they offer great ammenities, including a pool, and the best part is the beach service! They set up loungers umbrellas and fluffy pink towels. We felt like we were in the islands. You have to check this hip spot out!-Terry Roth
