Rooms are very large - great for families - we stay several times a year and love the newly renovated rooms. They added a Gym since last stay and are now opening a Spa in the next couple of months. So nice just to walk outside the hotel and straight onto the beach. Very personal and family run hotel. Cape May is so peaceful and safe that it feels from another age but contemporary at the same time. We also got a late check out at no extra charge which was very nice.

Room Tip: Ask for beach front or corner rooms

Our stay at this hotel was great. Everything is state of the art. Only problem is cell phone service. The front desk advised us that we may have problems because of the hurricane measures in the building. We had few problems. Also, no free breakfast. You will like it here.

Room Tip: The ocean front rooms were a few dollars more. Side rooms have a lesser view of the ocean.

The La Mer is our favorite hotel in Cape May. We tend to go for one night when we want a quick getaway to Cape May. We've stayed here several times and it's always a psotive experience. The rooms are large, clean and well maintained. The staff is always friendly and efficient. The La Mer is definitely recommended by this reviewer.

We went to Cape May in April 2013 and decided to mix it up with one nite in a Victorian B&B and another in a motel on the beach. Both were great! We loved La Mer b/c it is across the street from the beach, has a great restaurant/bar "Pier House" attached, staff is super friendly, covered parking, large rooms ( ones with ocean view and balconies are great) and also fridge, microwave and sink in the rooms. This hotel is a bit far from the Washington Street mall but it is an easy 5 minute drive. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds. It is a very large property with over 100+ rooms and they are all spacious and super clean. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The beds are comfortable and the room even had a small table and chairs for eating. This hotel is across the street from the beach and next to Peter Shields House which is a 5 star restaurant. We had a king partial ocean view room with a small balcony and it was heaven. The decor was a bit dated but for the room rate it was worth every penny. Our front desk agent, Lynne, was super friendly and informative. The room rates seem to be comparable if not lower to other motels.

We ALWAYS traveled to La Mer when we were a young couple in our twenties. It was reasonable, and it was always friendly and immaculately clean.
Well, years passed by and we were able to afford places like "The Virginia" and "The Carroll Villa". So, we started to get into that "boutique hotel" thing. We enjoyed being in the center of town and having all of the amenities we wished for within the confines of our inn.
Times have changed as of late, and for many years we have witnessed La Mer transforming into a larger, prettier property but we didn't give it much thought other than to say "it might be nice to go back there for "old time's sake".
When we decided to return on April 13th for a 2-night stay, were WE blown away!! The staff was SO incredibly delightful...I felt like I was registering at a four-star establishment in Philadelphia! The lobby was beautiful! But then THE ROOM!! Ocean-front, with a MAGNIFICENT view! It was spacious and contained a king-sized bed, full refrigerator, stove, etc. We were SO happy! It was CLEAN as could be, and we delighted that the weather allowed us some beautiful afternoons to sit outside and soak up the sounds of the lapping surf and watch children run up and down the beach, their dogs in tow. Since it was April, the parking meters were shut down, and the population of tourists was significantly depleted, so getting around town was NO big deal at all!
The bed and bathroom were as clean as one could imagine, and COMFORTABLE!! I had some of my best night's sleeps here in ages!
I cannot WAIT to return to La Mer! It was ALWAYS a pretty place in the hidden corner of Cape May's Poverty Beach area (don't let the name fool you! One of the best beaches EVER!). But I cannot believe how much more improved it is! Just absolutely LOVELY! Don't hesitate!

Room Tip: We went off season and a complete ocean view room was available. It was absolutely beautiful! If mon...
