Always review the room before booking because some rooms have no windows, so if it says no view it maybe the case. The room has french doors facing the wall. also far from the center of Cape May, no restaurant (under contraction). Giving a choice would book something little closer for the money with windows ...

Here is my "upgrade" to an ocean front room. Workers staying in the next room..watching tv late into the evening. Had go ask them to turn it down twice. Then, awoken on a sunny morning to construction noise. Great location but not worth $300+ per night. No accommodation from management. Do not accept a room on either of three floors...

We stayed here for a few nights in early May 2017. The rooms are very spacious and clean, the location is great across the road from the beach and the staff were very helpful and kind. I would highly recommend it and will be back.

Love this place. Beautiful room, clean and great view. Excellent, friendly staff. Love where it is located. Not in the middle of numerous B&Bs and narrow streets. Across from beach in beautiful area. Highly recommend. Restaurant under renovation but not a problem.

We stayed at the La Mer last weekend and it was a nice experience. The hotel is located on the north end of the Beach Avenue, overlooking the beach and away from the commercial area of the Beach Avenue (although everything is in walkable range). The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The staff is courteous and friendly but not...

Our room was beautiful...clean and spacious with a large balcony overlooking the ocean. Our balcony connected to other balconies so it was not private. If you want to sit out and enjoy the quiet, your neighbor's conversations may impede that. Also there was a full mini kitchen included. Unfortunately the hotel's restaurant was being rebuilt so there was no food...

La Mer is a nice convenient hotel at the end of the beach. Hotel room was very clean and bed was extremely comfortable. They are rebuilding the restaurant from ground up, so I am not sure when that will be ready. Balconies are not private which would be nice.

Outstanding views of the ocean and beach. This hotel is well maintained and away from the center town area so it is exceptionally quiet. We usually go there before peak season, so commenting on its location during peak season is not possible. Since parking is scarce in the town center, one may want to be closer. This is about our...
