What a wonderful hotel and staff! Staying at the La Mer was definitely home away from home. A warm welcome from the assistant general manager and the front desk team, smiling and very friendly room attendants, an exceptionally clean, comfortable, and beautiful beach front suite - who could ask for more! We are definitely coming back to this property and... More

We were looking for a beachfront hotel and found this to be more affordable than others in Cape May since it is down the street from the "action" but still a lovely part of the beach. The weather was even warm enough to sit on the beach two days after Christmas! The room was big, clean, and we enjoyed having... More

My daughters treated me to a weekend away so we could enjoy Cape May's Christmas Candlelight House Tours. The room had a great view of the ocean and a balcony, two comfortable queen-sized beds, a convenient kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator as well as a spacious bathroom. Everything looked new, clean and modern. Free wifi was appreciated and although I... More

This inn is extremely well arranged to be comfortable, spacious, and attractive. Good art, unlike many inns. Granite abounds! There is a small kitchen with microwave and refrigerator, good closet space, a safe, balconies (though ours was more a safeguard to protect the unwary from falling out the sliders than large enough to sit on). Nice quality toiletries and linens,... More

I stayed here in March 2015. It was still pretty cold but sunny. The room was very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable as well. The price was pretty cheap because it was still the off season. However, it was still $135 for one night.
