“Wedding weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

I stayed here this past weekend because of the price and the minimum nights allowed. Despite it being a holiday weekend, they only required a 2 night minimum unlike most hotels in CM who wanted 3 nights. The front staff was very pleasant. The room was beautiful and spacious. A lot of closet space - which was great for my wedding dress and bridal party dresses. We were able to get ready in the room and had enough space. The ocean view was spectacular. Shower was clean, room was clean. The kitchenette was decently sized. My new husband and I agreed that we want to come back for our year anniversary.

This was a great hotel. Staff was very nice, and the room was very clean. The first thing we always do is check for bed bugs, and they even had a plastic mattress cover. So that was very nice. There was only 1 bad review that we saw, and it involved a piece of clothing on the floor. I don't believe it for a second.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed here in August with my bf, and we had a great time. It was our first time to Cape May, and it was our last trip of the summer so I wanted to pick the perfect hotel. I called several other places, and nothing was included except for this place. Beach passes are included in your stay, they set up your chairs for you on the beach, and provide towels. The staff was even nice of us to let us use our beach passes on the day we checked out because we had some rain that interfered with us enjoying the beach. The rooms are immaculate, and the staff is friendly. The food is also good at the restaurant at the hotel. We even ordered lunch from the restaurant and they brought it to us by the pool. We definitely will be returning to Cape May, and staying the La Mer.

We love that you called us Best Hotel in Cape May! While we are biased, we unequivocally agree! We are thrilled you enjoyed your beach tags, complimentary beach services, poolside lunch and immaculately clean rooms. We are so happy you now consider us your go-to Inn while in Cape May. Thanks again!

My family has been vacationing in Cape May for over 20 Years. In that time we have stayed at a variety of houses and hotels. Last Month we stayed at La Mer Beachfront Inn and it was the best of best. We booked a Full Ocean View Large Efficiency. It was roomy, clean, and had great view. We cooked up a pasta dinner and dined ocean front! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful upon check-in and our stay went so smooth we did not need to interface with them again. Breakfast at the restaurant was very good. We will definitely be going back next year!

A great place, right next to the beach. Excellent service, clean rooms, and good amenities. Pier House restaurant had quality food with a Greek and Mediterranean flair. The view of the beach at sunrise and sunset were spectacular.

Read the cancellation policy. You will not see this until you reserve. Requires a two week notice for no charge. A little stiff. First, if you go to the jersey shore..you know the hotels are stuck in the seventies and old and they charge a pretty penny for substandard hotels. That being said..this hotel is fairly new by local standards. The rooms feel small..big closet..too much furniture for the room..granite in bathroom and mini bar area. Furniture is pretty cheap motel furniture nothing to write home about..i would say if you can get this room for under two hundred you have a deal in Cape May. The staff...everyone here..including the restaurant is a little off..nobody seems happy nobody smiles.... They are a non smoking property..they do not make this statement prominent on their website..even outdoor areas are non smoking..Good if you don't smoke..not good if you do want to have a smoke outside. Nice TV large. Balconies are large and have better than average outdoor furniture for jersey shore, not plastic chairs. Restaurant..didn't even try the food, place was empty and the hostess says "do you have reservations?" when we said no she made this horrible face at us..we chose to go to Harry's where they are always pleasant. we watched several others come in and receive the same treatment..almost as if this place wants to be a boutique hotel but doesn't have the background to pull it off. Probably would not come back..just due to the attitude. Also as someone else said..they "upgraded" my room..really i would like to be consulted before you change my room reservation. Air conditioner comes on loudly every five seconds or so..sounds like someone knocking on the door.. Location is great, Pool is small, covered parking but you are restricted to certain parking per building..so if you want to go to restaurant you cannot park in the parking nearest there if that isn't your assigned parking..this would be ok except it was pouring rain

Room Tip: ocean view...limited probably is one of the rooms with closed in patio..will add a photo tomorrow

great service, good restaurant, beach is just across the street, pool is great to come back to, but does get a little crowded, convenient to town. trolley is fun for kids - driver was a little grumpy - so be sweet : ) two years in a row and not disappointed!

Room Tip: ocean view is a must!
