I wanted to give a higher rating, because it really was a nice place with a beautiful view. But the noise and aromas from the construction negatively impacted our stay so much that I could not give more than a poor rating. We were really unhappy that we had a non-refundable booking and were never notified that multiple construction projections...

We were in Cape May for the weekend to see the Christmas House Lights Tour. We had a wonderful time. The hotel was perfect, plenty of restaurants and shops were open and Congress Hall was still celebrating 200 years. The houses/B&Bs were decorated beautifully. We had so much fun visiting so many and learning a little about each one. For...

Admittedly, my stay was in December, and I was working early and late, so most of my Beach view was in the dark, but this is a beautiful property - they have modernized it, and is is clean and has nice amenities! Full disclosure- there IS a road between the hotel and the beach, but it does not mar the...

The location was great with its ocean view from the balcony. The Pier House has both great service and food. It was so convenient to cross the street and walk down to the ocean. My husband and I had a great time for a well deserved getaway.

My wife took me here for a night. Clean hotel good parking. Great location for the beach. Would go back again. One down side furniture in room was a bit beat up, small complaint. Other then that it was good.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at La Mer and both times the rooms have been comfortable and clean. They are modern rooms with a mini kitchen (microwave, sink, fridge). We didn't have much contact with the staff, but the with the little contact we had the staff was friendly and helpful and check in was quick. There...

we stayed at La Mer and had our Herb Society of America District meeting there. It was awesome. The views from the rooms were very beautiful. The rooms were clean and spacious! The meeting room was nice and the staff went out of their way to make everything work for us. Valerie was the lady who helped us and she...

Loved our large ocean front room, extremely spacious with well equipped kitchen. Staff very friendly and informative. Went in the fall of the year for bird watching and really enjoyed the experience. We'll be back again. The only negative was the price. It was shared 3 ways on our trip, but for a family it is rather expensive.

Cape May is lovely and this hotel is right across the water from the ocean. The most important thing for us in any hotel stay is that the rooms are clean and this room was clean and well maintained (and well equipped). We were disappointed with the hotel in regards to their customer service, though, as the wi-fi was down...

This hotel was nice but not worth 5 stars. Yes, it was clean. Yes, the staff was pleasant and helpful. I did enjoy the king room with kitchenette…big fridge, nice to use real forks, knives, plates and cups. We were there on the off-season (November) so we practically had the hotel to ourselves. The few times people did walk by...
