My husband and I wanted a romantic getaway so I went online and started reading reviews and decided to go to Le Mer. From the moment we arrived the staff were amazing. Kathy took care of the reservation on the phone and when we got there she helped us check in and gave us advice on where to go and... More

We made last minute plans to spend a week in Cape May and were lucky to find anything available. We had always stayed in great B&B's in the past and wondered what to expect from the hotels there. La Mer is pricey in August (around $500 a night) but obviously the market there can support this price. La Mer is... More

We had another great stay @ La Mer Beachfront Inn, Cape May. As always, the room was great (room #325) Hotel staff friendly and accommodating. Pool and Beach Service was wonderful. Breakfast from the PIer House, as always, was great. Can't say enough about this hotel. We love staying here.

We have stayed at La Mer Hotel going on over 15 years now. We chose La Mer because it is kind of off the Main Stream of hotels. Through out our stays there, we have stayed in several types of rooms. The last 2 years we stayed at the penthouse across from Bill's Pancake House. I have to say that... More

This hotel has a great location; the beach is right across the street. The room was very average. It was clean and spacious, but outdated. The air conditioning was so loud that it kept me out of my sleep all night. I know this is high season, but this hotel is very overpriced! We will not be staying here again,... More

I thought the La Mer Inn was beautiful. I ahd asked for a room on the upper floors thanks to Trip Advisor advice and we had a room on the third floor. The room was very large, ocean front King with a frige and microwave. We also had a coffee maker, coffee service and regular dishes(service for four).No wine glasses,... More

Add me and my famiy to the growing list that will not be returning. We actually ended up checking out a day early, even though it meant we would still be charged. We were in room 212 which is a 'limited' view room. Fair enough - I didn't expect oceanfront, but neither did I expect to be staring at an... More

I want to start out saying that I agree with some others here. "The Shore" as we call it in NJ, is definitely overpriced, and most hotels are not worth it. What is worse than a "Super 8" in some spot is called 3 star at The Shore. Some are lovingly cared for and updated by their owners (think the... More

We just came back from a very nice trip to Le Mer in Cape May. Check in was easy. We got there early and were able to use the pool and beach until our room was ready. The room was nice, but a bit small for a family of four. The beach is right across the street, which is great.... More

First and last time I will ever stay there. For starters, my wife got a spinach and egg white omelet at the supposedly outstanding Pier House Restaurant. I guess the large green insect didn't get the message that the restaurant was supposed to be good. It ruined the whole family's appetite. They didn't charge us which is hardly a big... More
