classic cape may

Located less than a block from the ocean, The Star is a classic Cape May beach hotel, lovingly restored to provide an ideal blend of nostalgia, fresh seashore design and modern hotel comfort.
It’s the perfect reimagining of the much loved traditional beach hotel that’s provided generations of travelers with a seaside escape from the summer heat, except with all the comforts and small luxuries that make a trip to the New Jersey shore into a true holiday.
The Star offers a range of accommodations to suit the needs of every type of beach traveler, including nine comfortable guestrooms, 10 motel-style efficiencies with kitchenettes, some with private backyards and two luxurious two-bedroom carriage houses featuring full-length decks overlooking the ocean. All feature imaginative, evocative décor that’s inspired by the classic beach house experience with lots of bright, sunny colors and playful nautical accents.
A stay at The Star is enjoyable in its own right, but you’ll also be able to enjoy the activities and amenities of our sister hotels just a few steps away, including Congress Hall across the street, home of The Blue Pig Tavern and The Sea Spa and The Virginia, home to Cape May’s foremost fine dining destination—The Ebbitt Room. So guests at The Star get the sense of cozy intimacy that comes from staying at a small beach hotel without giving up any of the pleasures of a large resort experience.
