We recently stayed here off season and thought it was fantastic. The staff was sweet and friendly. The room was lovely, much as shown on the website. Very clean and a good size. The bathroom was a bit small but fine. The DirectTV and free internet were much appreciated on a cold day. We did not take advantage of the...

My sister and I treated my mother with 2 nights over Mother's Day weekend. We found the hotel to have a lovely old charm, very clean, and have an excellent location. However, the staff seemed to lack the professionalism and friendliness that I would expect. The front desk was between the main entrance and the steps up to the rooms,...

My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary weekend at the Virginia. It's historic and elegant without being stuffy. The hotel is located between the beach and the Washington St Mall, half a block in either direction. A perfect location! Our room was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. The good-sized bathroom had a double walk-in shower with a rainwater...

I just returned from a 1-night stay at the Virginia Hotel and it was absolutely wonderful. We went into the stay with very high expectations, which were all met and some exceeded. We stayed on the second floor in the “Jackson Room” which had a balcony/veranda that was fantastic, and the décor of the room was really lovely – soft...

We just love this place. The rooms are elegant without being over the top. They are spotless with great bed linens! The breakfast is an upscale continental breakfast and you can have it delivered either to your room or downstairs. The outside porch is a great way to pass the time!

Beautifully decorated and fitting in with the overall feel of Cape May just a couple of hundred yards from the beach. Old fashioned feel with guests drinking late afternoon cocktails on the veranda when we arrived. Room on the first floor via a beautiful staircase that made us think of Gone with the Wind! Spacious room and great bathroom. Pre-ordered...

We purchased a night at the suites for a great price during the week, we arrived to an immaculate room on the third floor, with an ocean view! then we had delicious cocktails complimentary, before heading out to dinner. Another complimentary bottle of wine was ready for us later. After a good night sleep and a great shower in the...

We stayed at the Red Cottage which is one of the cottages that is part of the Virginia Hotel and directly across the street. We absolutely loved it! We stayed in the Holly room, which was bright and more modern than other B&B's we've stayed at. It had a great sitting room attached to the bedroom that we often sat...

As always wonderful, yet every time in stay here I am surprised again by the ambiance, the friendly and helpful staff, the luxurious feel, and I will continue to return! Even though I am here for work and most everyone else is here for a romantic getaway- I still feel comfortable here- like I'm pampering myself

Stayed at the virginia several times. Everything is always wonderful. The staff, the food and drink, the rooms, the experience. The rooms are beautiful, and each time I visited they have been immaculately clean. Great location. An unforgettable getaway.
