We stayed at La Mer July 2015. It was our first time visiting Cape May and I can't tell you how much fun we had. La Mer is a perfect place to relax and unwind. Clean, spacious rooms, comfortable bed, wonderful service. The onsite restaurant was delicious and very well priced. The beach service was great too. They set up... More

This is without a doubt the most overpriced for the value hotel I have ever stayed in. They are clearly trying to capitalize on their location. I have a long list of complaints starting with a 3 PM check in with beach services ending at 5 and pool bar service at 3! There is no service after 11 AM on... More

I had stayed here almost 20 years ago and was pleasantly surprised just how much they updated in the last few decades. It was as if they tore down the old and put up all new. The room was clean and modern. We had a partial beach view, but from the balcony, it was full beach view. The staff was... More

This was a girl's trip to celebrate monumental birthdays. The location was great, right across the street from the beach. The hotel provided beach badges, towels a lounge chairs. We had quite a few staying in our room and the hotel was very accommodating in providing plenty of towels.

Stayed 4 nights in a king bed room facing the Ocean. Well located. Nice view. Average room furniture and bathroom. Noisy air conditioning. Very expensive room. Price is normally what you would pay in a 5 stars hotel and this one is no more than a 3 stars. This is the pattern everywhere in Cape May (restaurant, stores, rentals, etc).... More

We just returned from 3 nights at La Mer and will never stay anywhere else! We had an oceanfront room on the third floor and it was fabulous. The bedding was luxurious, the fridge and microwave were large, the balcony furniture was comfortable, and the inn was meticulously maintained. It was at the north end of town so it was... More

My sister-in-law and I recently stayed two nights at La Mer. The hotel staff was lovely and very accommodating. Our room was on the 4th floor and although it overlooked the parking lot and main entrance, we still enjoyed sitting out on the balcony in the evening. We never heard any noise from the hallways or outside of the hotel... More

My husband, two young sons, and I spent four days and three nights at La Mer in August 2015. We were so happy with our stay that we already booked for next year, and my parents decided to accompany us next year after our experience. The room was large, clean, and inviting. This was one of the quietest hotels we've... More

We've been staying at La Mer for several years now. Good sized room, very,very clean and comfortable! The staff is most accommodating and friendly. Beach tags were included in the room fee . When you arrive on the beach, give your name and attendants bring comfortable lounge chairs, towels and set up an umbrella at whichever spot you choose. Staff... More

The location is good, just near the beach not near the center so it's not crowded. The restaurant is good enough with a nice kids menu . The lobby is tiny , the reception is always overcrowded. The prices are too high while the service is poor.
