We stayed at the La Mer this April during off season the first time. We were very pleased with the accommodations. We had a Oceanfront efficiency room with a beautiful view to the ocean. Being off season, we enjoyed very much the quiet beauty of the ocean view from the private balcony and the morning walks along the beach (our 12 years included). The room was very clean and roomy. There was some construction going on but we never heard anything during our visit. Already we are planning to go back to La Mer this coming October.

We have stayed at the La Mer for 4 summers now. Very nice, oceanfront. Rooms are little expensive, but not for Cape May, but very high quality. Reminds me of a Marriott. Nice size rooms, updated, elevators. You get a discount for breakfast ($5 per person) at the Pier House Restaurant, which is right on the property (see my review). Also they have a beach service for free chairs and umbrellas. they have a stand right on the beach- Tommy Bahama chairs and umbrellas,and lounger chairs with towel!!! Nice big pool, towels, grill, and plenty of parking. It is in a quiet area surrounded by mansions. The staff is friendly and helpful. Upon check in the front desk wasnt sure if our room was ready as we were early, and the head of the maid service over heard this and offered to go up stairs and check on it (turns out it was ready in 15 minutes). Go to the Pier House to eat, its excellent (see my review). Also convenient to have a couple of drinks (or more) at night, the bar is very nice and Jason, the bartender is alot of fun and an excellent bartender!!!

We are back and loving every minute. Came in a day early and the front desk was able to accommodate us with one of the penthouses down the street. WOW! What a nice room. Matt helped us figure out the elevator. At check in before noon with our disabled daughter, Lynne and Reva at the front desk ( looking GORGEOUS as usual) made sure her room was ready as soon as possible. Love the addition of the beach chairs and towels! Also the coupon at the restaurant for breakfast. Nice touches to make our stay in Cape May even more fun and easy. Rooms are spacious and sparkling. We have been coming every year to the area for the past 32 years and hotels can be very iffy--La Mer is a sure bet.

Wow! Thank you so very much for the lovely review! We are so happy you found your recent stay even better than the last 3 years. We are striving hard to be one of Cape May's finest hotels and it's because of guests like you we can do so.

We will be sure to give Matt, Lynne and Reva a nice pat on the balk too:)

Thanks for being a loyal customer and hope to see you at the shore soon!

After deciding on a last minute trip to the beach , I called almost every hotel and B&B in Cape May with little luck. Everything was booked. I called La Mer and they had a room. We lucked out!! It was clean, right across from the beach, where they set up chairs and an umbrella for us at no cost, and the pool was beautiful! The hotel is located about a mile and a half from the "center " of town which we loved because it was totally peaceful! We went into town to do shopping and ate dinner at the Island Grill ( delicious) , and then left the crowds and happily returned to our retreat at La Mer. The hotel is located on one of the prettiest strips in Cape May. Be sure to drive along Beach Ave and around the neighborhood -- the houses are just beautiful. We also ate at the Pier House , which is on site, and had am unbelievable breakfast. Note: the food is fresh but supersized! You can literally split each thing between two people. The pancakes are huge and fluffy. My 15 yr old left half of them. Thd french toast is enough for 3! Needless to say, we left in the morning happy and full! We already said we'd be booking fit next year! But we would stay longer!

Spent 4 days here with husband, son, and 3 y.o. grandson and had a great time. Entered the room into a kitchen area and the first thing I noticed was the full size refrigerator rather than those mini dorm-size ones in most rooms. That along with the small kitchen sink and microwave allowed us to keep food for breakfast, lunch, and healthy kid-friendly snacks in the room - a big deal when traveling with a 3 year old. The room looked out onto the ocean and pool with a small balcony to sit and watch the sun rise over the ocean. The pool was divided into 3 sections: 1' for toddlers, 3' for small children, and 5' for swimming. It worked out great because there weren't older kids rough-housing in the toddler area so our shy 3 y.o. was able to play without lots of older children splashing and running. A surprise for our time at the ocean: if you show your room key you are provided with 2 beach chairs and an umbrella at no charge. This hotel was a great choice for us. It was clean, comfortable, and had all the amenities that we could hope for. Oh, and when we checked out late there was a room with showers and restroom facilites to get ready for the trip home! I'll definitely come back here next time I'm in Cape May.

Thank you so much for the lovely review! We are so happy you chose to stay with us while you visiting Victorian Cape May. We couldn't agree more with you -- our hotel is tailored for families. We are happy you enjoyed our spacious rooms, well-appointed kitchenettes and pool area. We're glad you took advantage of our recent addition -- beach chairs and umbrellas! As for checking out late, we encourage our guests to spend the day and use our showers and restrooms before heading home. Again, thanks for the kind words. Hope to see you and your family soon!
