Carroll Villa was wonderful, staff was great and very accommodating. Mad Batter is always wonderful, fantastic breakfast and wait staff, great bar and bartender. Did not have dinner, just "bar food". Very quiet, relaxing visit. We visited with Groupon offer, great deal. Everything was perfect.

I have been to Carroll's numerous times over the years and eaten at the Mad Batter. I was there this past Saturday, 3/8, and as usual, the place did not disappoint. From Mark the owner who is always around and helpful to the bartenders, the place makes a person feel like they are at home and taken care of. Would...

Our stay at the Carroll Villa Hotel and adjoining restaurant,The Mad Batter, was a most welcomed get away from the harsh reality of winter.

As you know, the Carroll Villa is an older building, circa 1882. The Proprietors are constantly upgrading and maintaining the premises. We are sorry for the confusion over your reservation and for the distress it caused. We are also sorry for the heat inconvenience however all of our individual heaters do have knobs on them to adjust the output. Perhaps...
