4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have mobility issues, but I wanted to spend a week at the beach. For me, La Mer was ideal because it had several elevators, plenty of parking places close to the elevators, clearly designated handicapped parking, handy trolleys located next to the elevators for transporting luggage to one's room, rooms and hallways wide enough so I could use my...

If you're looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place to go. The pool is way overcrowded with out of control children, and they are poorly supervised by their parents. There is no kiddie pool, just one pool with babies in diapers. While the room was very nice, there was no privacy between balconies. In order to escape... More

We stayed at an efficiency which was very nice with a lovely view however given the premium price for the facility the amenities and lack of attention to various details was disappointing. I felt that while they charged a premium cost which I did not mind paying, management tried to save on peanuts which to me was annoying. The efficiency... More

My first trip to Cape May was in July 2016 and I stayed here. I liked it so much I came back for another week and brought the rest of the family!! The staff was very friendly and the location is perfect. During the summer they give you beach tags to use while you are there and they have umbrella,... More

We stayed 4 nights. Enjoyed the beach access with passes. Pool was great and enjoyed it every day. Room was clean and had nice kitchen area. Nice partial views of water. Friendly staff. Used trolley one night. Used gym and loved access to restaurant. Went I breakfast and order food at pool. A little pricey, but I'll definitely return.

This place is not a tragedy, but I wouldn't do it again. I've been "around the block" on beach vacations and this one will never get a 3 star rating b/c it's more like a motel in Ocean City than a swank beach front hotel in Cape May -- except their prices say swank beach front Cape May "establishment". The... More

My family and I stayed for 4 days and 3 nights. The hotel is great compared to what you expect at hotels down NJ shore. However, for two of the three nights our AC refused to blow cold air. If the room had fans, we could have dealt with it but the room had dead, warm air which made sleep... More

This was our first time at the hotel, and we will definitely be back! The location was fantastic. The grounds were beautiful. We parked our car and left it there the whole time we were there. We took our bikes everywhere. The service at the hotel was excellent. We were given a beach tag at check in. When we walked... More
