"wedding tasting"
The Star Inn is as close to Congress Hall as possible. The room was clean and pleasant, but tiny!

"Not what I expected from a Cape Resorts hotel."
Accomodations were good if you were looking for a quick get away and needed a place to stay. Doors to the room lack security and do not have good sound barriers to them. Housekeeping staff in the AM leave laundry all about the small hallways and is very noisy

Simple but comfortable. RM 5 is small if you want bigger room stay in motel section not the INN. They tried not to honor free breakfast but then I said is was offered online to they gave a credit for breakfast.

"Pre-Christmas getaway"
The Star Inn is in an ideal location, very close to the mall area and all the shops. Check in at the beautiful Congress Hall was very easy and breakfast there was very nice. Our room was basic and suited our needs. The only down side was we stayed in room 8 and there was a fire exit door that had to be accessed through a hallway between our room and our bathroom. It was a little unusual but didn't affect our stay.

"Disappointed Sister Hotel for Congress Hall"
We arranged a two (2) night stay, off season; and it was cold. So much so that the wind blew through a hole in the bottom of the door ~ all night long! Unable to adjust the temperature in the suite. Unable to wash my hair as the shower head lacked pressure; my husband had to shower while holding half the holes closed just to rinse off.

"Great value in the off season"
My wife and I disappeared to Cape May for mid week break. We have been coming to Cape May for years, using staying in a B7B. It was quiet and peaceful. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast at the Blue Pig was excellent, but pricey. The tea was hot, but of course not worth $3.50 a cup. I could've imported 30 teabags of quality black tea from Ireland for that price. We spent the voucher on one breakfast. Close to the beach. I would definitely recommend. I do miss the intimacy of the B&B, especially meeting other people during breakfast, but this was fine.

"Loved it!"
We were in efficiency 14 I believe and it was adorable! So clean. Our stay was comfortable and relaxing. We ate at the Blue Pig for breakfast, make sure to request farm fresh eggs as they are delicious. We walked over to the beach and in town to shopping. We will be returning in the near future.

Nice quite weekend. Just what we wanted. You may use all the facilities at their other 3 properties in the city. Across the street from their premier property, Congress Hall. Nice because you can charge to your room at all their locations.

"Very Pleasant"
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Star for one night in early October and it suited our needs perfectly, and even surpassed some expectations. Plenty of parking, and a short walk across the street to Congress Hall to check-in. The gentleman who checked us in was very helpful and gave us a map of the area as well as a voucher toward breakfast the following morning at the Blue Pig Tavern in Congress Hall (which we gladly utilized and highly recommend). Our room was #4 in the Cottage portion of the Inn, and though it was slightly obscured by a neighboring building, we were delighted to see the ocean from our windows. Fantastic ocean breeze into the room, as well. Our room was immaculate, with a large closet and updated bathroom with a glass-door travertine tiled shower. Five-minute walk to the beach in one direction, and five-minute walk to the shops at Washington Street in the other. Ten minute drive to Sunset Beach or Lighthouse. Plenty of dining options nearby, both casual (highly recommend Y.B. on Beach Ave around the corner from the Star) and formal (The Ebbitt Room is just one street away, we'll be dining there next time we stay). Would definitely stay again.

"Friendly staff, clean room, a bit too small."
Very quaint hotel at a super location. Room was quite small with low ceilings that we hit our head on occasionally. Was fine for one evening but would not have worked well for an extended stay. Staff was quite friendly and helpful with answers to questions.

Due to the height of myself and my husband, we were not comfortable in the Inn portion of this hotel. The eaves of the roof on the top floor make it uncomfortable for tall people to move about.

"Everything was great, but watch your head."
Perfect location, great staff, etc. However, some third floor rooms have low head clearance, and I have a couple of bumps to prove it. Maybe this is to be expected in a Victorian building?

"Star Shines Again..just not in Room 8"
Our second consecutive year at Star Inn and, like every other Congress Hall-affiliate, service is their #1 priority. Loved everything again except the layout of the room (Room #8)...Main room itself if good size, great bed, closet, etc. Problem for us was the bathroom is separated by the Fire Exit corridor which meant having to lock two doors each time we left the room and leaving our belongings in the bathroom wide open as there is no outside lock on the bathroom door. We understand the majority of people won't be bursting through the Fire Exit door on that floor unless there's an emergency but it doesn't make the layout convenient. We did request a room change if possible, but that was a long shot on Labor Day weekend. The staff did their best to find another room. Overall, with the location and amenities tied to staying at Star Inn/Congress Hall, the extra doors were a small bump in the road. Will definitely come back to Star Inn next year!

"Overall Great Experience"
Arrived on a Saturday and departed on Monday. The front desk is staffed during normal business hours, if you need anything in the off hours you have to contact Congress Hall. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was small, but comfortable. Bed was quite comfortable as well. Light refreshments and coffee are served at front desk, if you want anything else it has to come from Congress Hall. It's in great proximity (walking distance) from everything. Additionally since the property is part of the Cape Resorts Group you get to use the facilities like the pool at congress hall and beach chairs/umbrellas on the beach. I would definitely stay here again. Only negatives I can say were that there were some odd angles in the ceiling (expected with older properties) that I hit my head on and the toilet lacked any suitable flushing power (room 8). Additionally there was a acrid burning smell, possibly from one of the concession refrigerators, noticeable when you walked in the front door.

"Great location, tiny room, slow service"
Overall, the Star Inn was great! The location is about 100 yards from the beach. Our room was very small, but sufficient. The bathroom was one of the best and most well stocked (Aveda Products) of any hotel we've ever stayed at. The service throughout the hotel's restaurants and beach cabanas was VERY slow. At one point we sat for 15 minutes before a waiter approached us. When you stay at the Star Inn you are able to use all the amenities of the Congress Hall, which was great. We would not hesitate to stay at the Star Inn again, and aside from the high price, would recommend the Inn to anyone.

"Great location"
Hotel was centrally located to beach, shopping & dining - all within walking distance. We stayed in the "house" part of the hotel and unfortunately had to carry luggage up to the 3rd floor because there is no elevator. I would stay here again but request 1st floor. At select times, there is no check-in at that location, so guests need to go across the street to Congress Hall Hotel (affiliate) to check in for room keys - but there was no sign posted to state that. Hotel had a nice porch with seating for partial view of water. Great location.

"Small but comfortable"
It was a tiny room. However it worked out nicely. Having the Congress Hall amenities was the highlight of the stay. Walking across the street and enjoying the Boiler Room and Brown Room’s music and atmosphere were fabulous. The breakfast vouchers were adequate for 1, not 2. That was Ok though. I was glad I was in the Star Inn at checkout time. I watched people waiting for their valet service to get their cars while I could just walk over to the Star Inn and drive away. It was very convenient when I drove to see the sights and out to dinner. A great stay!

Comfortable accom next to the Congress Hall. Was able to use Congress Hall facilities as the 2 properties are co-owned by the same group. Great location off the Mall and next to the beach. Staff at Blue Pig restaurant were pleasant and friendly and good food on offer.

We didn't realise until check-in that this motel was part of the Congress Inn hotel across the road. The Congress Inn was a large beautifully restored hotel with many amenities and was a nice place to eat.
