4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Beachfront hotel (across street from beach as there are no hotels directly on the sand) that is clean, updated with great views. The hotel is at the end of a busy strip along the beach but well within walking distance of restaurants, bars, music and shopping. The furthest you would probably walk is 1 -1 1/2 miles to Washington Street... More

My parents and I stayed here for 2 nights recently. The hotel was not nearly as new as it looks on the website. The room was ok, but the beds were pretty uncomfortable and overall, it seemed a bit dated. We were in a room right by the elevator and ice/soda machines, so there was quite a bit of noise... More

The staff were very helpful and pleasant and the room was spotless. The resort is situated at the end of Beach Avenue where it's quiet but still close enough that you could walk to the center of the activities if you choose to (about 1 mile walk). The restaurant next door, The Pier House, was great for breakfast (didn't have... More

This was our fifth stay at La Mer and as always everything was perfect. Cleaning staff were wonderful (rooms are spotless), front desk people always helpful. Anything we needed was taken care of within minutes. Landscaping surrounding the hotel is done beautifully creating privacy for guests and the lawn chairs on the grassy areas was a great addition. The Pier... More

We enjoyed our stay at La Mer, definitely better than many other places we have stayed in Cape May. The hotel is updated and the rooms were nice and spacious with lots of nice little amenities inside the room. It's also right across the beach with their own chairs, towels, etc. It's a hike away from the main shopping district... More

The hotel is in a perfect location. It is at the quieter end of the beach, and we watched the dolphins from the beach every day. We could even see them from the balcony of the hotel. The service at the hotel is spot on, and the rooms are quiet and comfortable. Will definitely stay here again.
