La Mer Beachfront Inn
Ranked #20 of 37 Hotels in Cape May
Reviewed June 19, 2011

After staying in Cape May for around 25 years we are very familiar with most of the hotels. We had never tried La Mer before & are very glad we did. The rooms are very well appointed with no obstructions to ruin you view of the ocean. Having a private balcony, instead of a walkway as some hotels have, was great. The pool was very large & had umbrellas. This is rare in Cape May. We also like the fact that it is not in the center of town, & does not have the promenade in front of it, with the glare of street lights to ruin the view at night. Instead you have a dune leading to the beach. We only tried the restaurant once for breakfast & the food was excellent.
We will definitely return to La Mer since it is the best hotel in Cape May & meets all our expectations.

La Mer is an OK hotel. We were not crazy about the room. The air conditioning unit was very loud and went on and off all night. The pool was great! Clean and great service. We loved the area and the food in the local restaurants was delicious! Some places were a little pricey, but the food was worth it! It was overall a good weekend.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed OK.

Dear Angie412,
Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are upset to hear that your AC unit was loud and are taking action to fix the problem. We are so happy you loved the location and we hope you come back to Victorian Cape May again!

Spent 4 nights in this fabulous hotel...we have stayed here in the spring for the past 4 years. By far the best deal in Cape May...the views from the balcony can't be topped any other hotel in Cape May! The resturant is one of the best in town, the rooms are the largest and cleanest we ever stayed in. The staff is the best around and 5 stars is not high enough for this place. Stay here one night and you'll be back for more...great job to the folks who run this establishment!!

My husband and I stayed just one night at Le Mer last month on a driving trip of the NJ Shore on our way to Washington DC. The hotel was a little way out of the main tourist area and required a car to get around but we enjoyed the peace it afforded us.
Our spacious room on the 4th floor was very well appointed. We were delighted to find it had a semi kitchen with a microwave oven - allowing us the opportunity to heat up some food to eat on our balcony while enjoying a side view of the ocean and being protected from the onshore winds. The was also a gym on the 3rd floor, a large outdoor heated pool and free on site undercover car parking. 2 complimentary internet-connected computers were available in a private room close to reception (unfortunately neither were working while we were there) At only $111.00 for the night this was very good value in an otherwise overpriced tourist area.

The front desk staff were courteous and friendly. The room was very clean and updated, as was the entire hotel. Parking was convenient, The pool area was clean and well kept.
The location is great-right across the street from the ocean, and a bit further from the shops along the beach/boardwalk area. The weather/wind didn't cooperate for us to use the private balcony but we tried! Would definitely return again.

I've heard about how Victorian Cape May is a must-see so I drove down from NYC this past weekend to check it out. After reading other TA reviews, La Mer seemed like the best place to stay because it's the island's most contemporary hotel and has a gym, conference room and business center. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed. The rooms are HUGE and extremely clean and the ocean views cannot be beat! All rooms have private balconies which is AWESOME. I also had breakfast at The Pier House as the front desk gives all guests discount coupons which is a nice touch. The fact that this is Cape May's most modern and new hotel makes it the place to stay at when visiting Cape May.

I am an accountant and could not wait to get to Cape May on April 15th. My boyfriend had planned to surprise me with a long weekend after "tax day" and the LaMer did not disappoint.

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived around 8 pm to checkin and the front desk person was wonderful. We were upgraded to a very large, ocean front king room.

The room was comfortable and clean. The view was the BEST.. just straight out to the beach and ocean. It was so quiet and relaxing that I did not want to leave!

We had breakfast one morning at the restaurant on site. This was the only glitch of the weekend. I thought that the prices were a little high even with our coupon. Also, my breakfast was served cold. Again, these were just small issues and the service was good.

If you want some peace and quiet along with great service at the Jersey shore, you can NOT miss the LaMer.
