“Great value!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

I love this place! It is consistently very clean, and the staff is always wonderful. The rooms are really spacious and I love having a fridge in the room. I especially love the balconies that face the ocean. Best of all, the rates are super reasonable for Cape May. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a newer hotel, in a quiet location, with a great staff and great amenities.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the La Mer to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. The front desk staff were all helpful and friendly and welcoming. The room was spotless, and has a nice kitchen area...and we will stay there again, but I did not give it 5 stars because the bathroom was very small and cramped for 2 people. Only one sink, and the toilet is very low - hard on us older people. The pool had only chaise lounge chairs and small plastic tables with attached benches, no regular chairs...and is only open until 6pm. Closes too early. The hostess area in the restaurant, The Pier, was extremely tight and log jammed! The food was decent, but costly....that said, it was a very pleasant visit. We did not feel like the panoramic ocean view was worth the extra money and will not reserve that room again - but the other ocean front rooms would be lovely.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the pool would have to deal with some noise...the oceanfront rooms are very nice...

We decided to go to Cape May for an overnight trip on a saturday. We found an affordable rate at the La Mer. The staff was very friendly and helpful upon check in. The room was very clean and a great size. Our room had a beautiful ocean front balcony. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Cape May.

This was my 1st time staying in Cape May and chose La Mer after finding them on booking.com to head to the shore last minute after a rainy week and needing someone sunshine! Before reserving through the booking.com website, I called the reservation # directly at the hotel as I had some specific questions about location of the rooms after reading other visitor reviews. Valerie in reservations was absolutely outstanding! She answered my questions, waited for me to book through booking.com (since she could not offer the lower rate booking.com was offering) and also made sure my request for top floor and full balcony were met!
We arrived wayyyy before check in (3pm), front desk took my cell #, gave me beach tags and called us when the room was ready.
I was super pleasantly surprised to learn that they provide beach lounge chairs, umbrellas and beach towels on the beach as part of your stay at their hotel!
Front desk associates were pleasant and informative.
Had breakfast (take out) the next morning at the on-site restaurant. Food was terrific and not overly priced as many beach resort town restaurants tend to be.
The only complaint (if you want to call it that) was the very, very, very limited room service food menu! Only offering fruit and cheese platters as the choice. Surprising for a hotel with an onsite restaurant. However if you want beer and wine that is available for room delivery.
Would ABSOLUTELY return to this hotel! A+++++++ for my 1st experience in Cape May!

Room Tip: Top floor and request full balcony!

Clean, updated, hotel located right on the beach with great amenities. Our family of 4 spent 2 days and 1 night here in June 2014 and it was great. Room had a small kitchen which is great. They provide complimentary chairs and umbrellas on the beach. Food and drink service for the beach and pool. (Bar service at pool too!). We will return here (and we've stayed at Congress Hall...which is also great, but this has better value).

This was our first time visiting Cape May, and we sure picked the right place to stay! This is a wonderful hotel that is conveniently located across the street from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and shopping! The staff are very helpful and the rooms are extremely clean! We enjoyed the beautiful heated pool and having a great view of the beach from our balcony. The hotel provides free beach tags and chairs for use on the beach which is another plus!
Also, eating outside at The Pier House restaurant (which is connected to the hotel) was delightful for breakfast! Looking forward to going back for another stay!!!

We picked this hotel based on price and availability, and were not sure what to expect. We were beyond impressed!! Our room which was meant to have no view, actually did, so we enjoyed some time on the patio looking at the ocean. The rooms were clean and well equipped, and the staff were most friendly. Breakfast at their restaurant, The Pier House, is a must-have! We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a room away from the pool area unless the sounds of children don't bother y...
