My father is ill and wanted a day at the beach. I have been going to Cape May, NJ for the past 3 years and knew that this would be the best beach experience for my dad. Lynn at La Mer made every aspect of our stay pleasurable and smooth. The Inn itself is beautiful, clean, well staffed and the... More

We have been to Cape May 5 times and this was our third time staying here. We love that it has a kitchenette that includes a fridge, microwave, dishes and utensils. It allows for us to enjoy breakfast in the room, pack lunches for the beach and then we can enjoy dinner out at Cape May's finer restaurants. The rooms... More

We really loved La Mer and will definitely come back again. The staff was very nice. There is a very lovely restaurant on property. The pool is also very nice. You get beach tags to go to the beach and they provide towels, chairs, and umbrellas. The room was big and had a great view. We stayed at the Periwinkle... More

Great place. I'd go back there. It's pricey, but If you can afford it, stay there. It's worth the price. For starters, check in was a breeze. We booked through a 3rd party discount travel site. We got there early and our room was ready for us. We had a reserved parking spot. We also got free beach passed that... More

If you are looking to stay in beautiful Victorian Cape May for a summer getaway, and you don't wish to be in the heart of the action but a short distance from it, this is your destination. The hotel is about a mile from the attractions (stores, food, iconic homes). Close enough to walk to but far away enough for... More

My husband and I went to La Mer for the first time Labor Day Weekend 2014, and we booked for Labor Day 2015 before we left. Really looking forward to our second visit. La Mer is definitely luxury for 'the shore' and well worth the investment. Our oceanfront room was spacious and lovely. La Mer has a wonderful spa, great... More

Overall our stay at this property was good. It’s well-maintained, very family-friendly, and the staff seems well-trained and very competent. The room we stayed in had a small kitchenette (small fridge, microwave, small sink, and place settings for 4. Also had very nice cabinets and a granite countertop. The room had LOTS of closet space, and overall the room was... More

This hotel really is top notch. Not fancy, but the rooms are large, up to date, and very clean. A/C works awesomely well, which is pretty important for a hot, humid area. Staff was very friendly and competent. Parking is right there and included. Trolley nearby goes downtown. Beach across the street is nice and not crowded, and the hotel... More

Returned this year with my daughter for a girls week and was welcomed like one of the family. The staff are so attentive, friendly and professional. An oceanfront room is money well spent as the view is breathtaking. Will come back again.
