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.

La Mer is an excellent hotel located close to the quiet Poverty Beach area of Cape May. It has a nice pool and upscale restaurant on the premises. Opened year round, there are many room types to fit your needs including suites and efficiencies overlooking the beach with beautiful views. Rooms with no ocean views are less expensive. There’s ample... More

Wonderful view from the room. Very quiet grounds. Very comfortable clean beds. Tv's are mounted which is a nice look. Wi-Fi worked great. Bathroom clean nice tub. Coke machine was poorly stocked. Walls are extremely thin. Overall good stay. Would stay again. Wish there was a dedicated smoking area. Don't like to be singled out and have to leave the... More

From the start the front desk staff was very professional and courteous when signing in to the hotel. Our room was just beautiful, ocean front w/balcony, granite counter tops/fridge, micro-wave. Very clean, not to mention the wonderful view.

Nice rooms. Decent price, off season. Clean and the staff is reasonably helpful and able to wait on customers -- unlike most of the rest of this town! Reasonably quiet and restful. Spacious rooms -- with indoor access (unlike many hotels here where one has to brave the elements to get to one's room!)

Stayed weekend in November with husband in ocean front suite. Our room was on the top floor with an amazing view of the ocean. Room does need some updating but typical of most the hotels in this area. The staff at check in was not polished or professional and actually starting checking us in and when got a question about...

Hotel staff was very friendly. Very large guest rooms that were very clean and tastefully decorated. A cute little kitchen area with microwave and good size refrigerator. Nice oceanside view. Wonderful location away from the crowded town area. The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars is the bed. Did not get a good nights sleep and woke up... More

I booked this room for my mom who was joining us for a family event. My mom loved the room which faced the parking lot and didn't have a balcony. She said it was the nicest room shes stayed in recently. We brought pizza back to the room and there was plenty of room for us to sit around and... More

We were in town for my nephews wedding and the La Mer was one of the properties reserved for the wedding guests. Our room was an ocean front suite and was a pleasant surprise. When we entered the room we found the largest hotel room we have ever stayed at. It has a kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, stove... More

My partner and I have been coming here for about 6 years. Our "love affair" with La Mer is over. The staff was rude with the exception of Lynn and Hanah. Lynn who normally takes care of us is now semi retired and was not there but had booked our reservation. We have only stayed at La Mer while in... More
