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

Nice place. Clean. Spacious. Fridge. Microwave. Coffee maker. Bottle opener. Dishes. Hair dryer. Modern tvs. Comfy king bed. Lots of pillows. Plenty of room for clothes. Beautiful view. Small table and two chairs nice for plaing cards. Def eat at the lobster house. Check out the antique store nearby. Extremely nice weekend. We brought bottled water. Wine. Snacks.

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

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!)

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
