Just walking into the lobby makes the driving fog in your brain part. We had a mess up with our reservation (my fault), but we were very courteously accommodated. The room was beautiful, ocean view, comfy bed, nice sized bathroom, coffee set up, fridge. Everything was explained very well, beach tags, trolley. The balcony is great, nice to sit on... More

Beautiful, quiet, and exceptionally friendly hotel. We traveled with our two kids (both under 3) and they were very accommodating. It's in a more residential section along the beach, which I loved. A free trolley takes you to other locations along main Beach Ave and 'mall' downtown. I can't wait to visit this hotel again.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel located at the end of the Cape May Beach. The room was clean, beautiful and the location was perfect for relaxation. Away from the crowds and noise of downtown but a free trolley ran from 12 Noon to 11pm to take hotel guests in and out of downtown. The beach service with... More

We paid over $400 a night for a Monday and Tuesday stay. The room was tiny and the bathroom dirty. I found many hairs stuck to the walls and on the floor- yuck! Upon arrival , there was very little information given about beach access and chairs, umbrellas and towels being available. When my husband complained about the bathroom, the... More

My wife and I needed a place for a midweek getaway at the beach and after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor settled on La Mer. We arrived earlier than check in time, but were advised by the young lady at the desk that our room wasn't ready yet.She provided us with a parking pass for the hotel lot and... More

Great hotel on the beach. Very clean. A little pricy, but it's the season in the area. Very good service. Excellent service providing chairs, towels and umbrella at the beach. A little loud. Air conditioner was very loud when it came on. But very good place - we'd stay there again.

My family and I really enjoyed ourselves! The staff was amazing and the Inn itself was very ,very clean,thanks to the fantastic housekeeping ladies! The only thing that I wasn`t excited about was that I had to cross a very busy street to get to the beach,which was quite a trek.Also, the noise level was pretty high on our last... More

We love this place, this will be our 4th year! We missed last year but won't next year! It is a bit pricey but worth every penny! Right in front of the beach it has an old school / heritage neighborhood feel to it:) no more carrying chairs and umbrellas w us! They provide it all on the beach, the... More

My husband took me here for my birthday weekend. It was a beautiful hotel, the location was great and since we checked in off season the price was pretty decent. The staff however was kinda cold not really all that friendly or helpful. But I wanted to make the most of it. Our room was clean and the view was... More
