Great location and has a great theme. There could be minor upgrades that would help. Small things in the room were not in full working order (sink drain stopper, bathroom door lock) and things in the lobby could be more clean. Staff wasnt exactly rude, but not very willing to help as much as expected. They almost acted as if...

We were in Pa. for a summer wedding and I saw an ad for this hotel on line at Sniqueaway. We decided to go for it and go to Cape May in August, Summertime at the Shore. Our first time ever in Cape May. First time at the Virginia hotel. First off, this is a cute as a button town....

As a very picky traveler, I seem to have to write a review on one of my latest travels. I stayed with my mother at the Virginia Hotel in Cape May and was very excited for my stay. It was an A+ from cleanliness and the decor to the service in the morning for breakfast to your room or the...

first time was a groupon...this time not. We do love the virginia, don't get me wrong, and we will visit again but the check in staff needs to be more attentive,more informative, more customer service. This was our first time here in the summer and we were clueless as to the amenities. no warm and fuzzy welcome to the virginia...

We stayed here for 2 nights in July. I was able to get their hot summer deal special. We were the last guests to arrive that Sunday night. They knew exactly who we were upon checking in. I booked a standard queen room and they gave us a spacious corner room with two full bed. I contacted front desk and...

We were pleasantly surprised with our dining experience at the Virginia Hotel. We have been coming to Cape May for years and never ate here. Our server Vince was very pleasant and very good at explaining the menu. The dining room had a great atmosphere with the bar on the side with a piano player. We had our wine on...

This is a long and detailed review but I wanted to share a real experience staying at this hotel (which I really wanted to like) but can't now that I've stayed there. Overall while I liked the property a lot and enjoyed the location and comfort of the room, I would not return for the reasons I mentioned below. I...

I am a frequent visitor at both Congress Hall and the Virginia Hotel. The last time, however, we stayed in the Red Cottage, particularly the Windjammer room. Its a tiny room, facing the back of other houses. Unlike what the photos may suggest, you do NOT have access to any living area other than the very small room with the...

For the most part I absolutely loved the hotel. I found the staff to be very friendly and the decor of the the hotel stunning. Seemed more upscale than Congress Hall and catered more to adults. The bed linens were the best that I have experienced in any hotel, anywhere and I really enjoyed the individually served continental breakfasts. The...

I have lived in NJ for 25 years and had never been to Cape May before last weekend. The Virginia and their restaurant The Ebbit Room were everything I had hoped for.
