We just recently stayed two nights at the La Mer for our 1st experience at Cape May. Everything about this hotel was nothing but first rate as it is the most modern and contemporary establishment on the island. IMO the location, size of units , condition and ocean views are superior to all other hotels on Cape May . The... More

This beachfront hotel features many amenities but can be quite expensive. Some rooms can be over $500 dollars a night which is a lot since this hotel is not much different from other hotels in the area. There are nicer and less expensive hotels still beachfront in Cape May New Jersey.

We came for our sons USCG Graduation from boot camp. Even though check in wasn't supposed to be until 3 pm. I stopped to see what the earliest time that... More

My husband and I stayed at this Inn for one night. We found the Inn and property very nice. Overall, it was clean. We were able to park undercover and the elevator was nearby. The rooms were clean; but, starting to show a little wear. The tile in the bathroom was starting to show deterioration and some dirt in the... More

Stayed for one night as a belated Valentines Day escape. The hotel is located directly across from the ocean at the beginning of the Cape May strip. There is the Pier House restaurant next door and The Peter Shields restaurant just a short walk away. We booked an Oceanview room with balcony. The room was clean and spacious with a... More

We stayed here during the coldest weekend in the past 20 years. Luckily, the heating system was able to keep the room fairly comfortable! Ice cold floors on the second floor over the parking areas though! They sell $3.00 slippers if you didn't bring your own! Room was recently renovated and quite spacious and comfortable. Nicely appointed kitchenette with granite... More

We just stayed for a December wedding. The room was spacious with a kitchenette including microwave, sink, fridge, and coffee maker. Super clean. We had an ocean view. Nice balcony with chairs and table. Would love to visit again in the summer, but probably would be too pricey.
