The La Mer is a well-maintained motel facing the ocean at Cape May. Very nice rooms with kitchenettes. We have been staying at the La Mer for quite a few years and it is always a pleasant experience. However I do have to agree with other comments on the rigidness of the booking staff. We intended to stay the week,... More

First of all, I would like to say that My Wife and I have been going to La Mer for the past 15 years, and have enjoyed out times there, and looking forward to each year returning. As you can red from our reviews, all have been positive. We were scheduled to return in August 2015 for another yearly stay,... More

A last minute trip to Cape May, the southern most tip of New Jersey, the end, but it's just the beginning of a wonderful adventure. Starting at the hotel, right across from the rolling and crashing waves, the on and off rolling fog. The room has everything you need for the comforts of home, that you just want to sit... More

I got to La Mer two to three times per year. I had a three day reservation fully understanding the 14 day cancellation policy. (You lose your one day deposit) My mom died and they WOULD NOT allow me to reschedule or get a credit. I was within 13 days of my trip. I find this unacceptable for an establishment... More

This hotel was very very nice. Everything was extremely clean, updated and all amentities were available. We had an ocean front room on the top floor and the view was spectacular. We ate breakfast at the restaurant and although a little pricey was worth the price. It is not very close to the "downtown" so be prepared to walk if... More

My husband & I went to Cape May for 2 nights last weekend. We booked a limited ocean view king room but we were given an ocean view which was very nice. The bed was comfortable. I would have preferred a little stronger spray from the shower but it was fine. I had looked at other properties but was put... More

I stayed in room 405 which was a corner room with a panoramic view. Truthfully, the "side" view is just of the property nextdoor and I'm not sure I would pay extra for it again. The balcony with ocean view is DEFINITELY worthwhile, though. I sat out there and watched a steady parade of dolphins swimming by all morning! Check... More

Nice location but distant enough from center of town for some rest. The room was clean, good sized and comfortable. Parking is plentiful. A small kitchenette with frig and microwave works for the small meals like breakfast. Only suggestion to management is to install a sweep at bottom of hall door to minimize noise and light transfer. it was a... More
