Baltimore, Maryland
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Our room was beautiful...clean and spacious with a large balcony overlooking the ocean. Our balcony connected to other balconies so it was not private. If you want to sit out and enjoy the quiet, your neighbor's conversations may impede that. Also there was a full mini kitchen included. Unfortunately the hotel's restaurant was being rebuilt so there was no food...

La Mer is a nice convenient hotel at the end of the beach. Hotel room was very clean and bed was extremely comfortable. They are rebuilding the restaurant from ground up, so I am not sure when that will be ready. Balconies are not private which would be nice.

Outstanding views of the ocean and beach. This hotel is well maintained and away from the center town area so it is exceptionally quiet. We usually go there before peak season, so commenting on its location during peak season is not possible. Since parking is scarce in the town center, one may want to be closer. This is about our...

We spent a short weekend in Cape May and stayed at Le Mer. It fit the bill, had a great location. It really is a Nice Hotel with great staff and Nice rooms. Exactly what we expected. The one thing to note is it's currently under construction and although quiet at night, during the day there is a bit of...

Clean, quaint, roomy. Easy check in and out. However, I had to fight to get my stay deferred when my parent died. Then, after that, they would not let me use my gift certificate...I had to pay AGAIN and then use the gift certificate after the stay---when they did not refund my money that they had been holding for over...

Having never stayed at the Jersey Shore before we thought Cape May might be a good introduction and we definitely wanted to try it in the off season first. We arrived at 2.30pm on a Thursday after travelling for several hours, unfortunately our room wasn't ready so we went out to track down some food (no easy feat at close...

La Mer was a wonderful surprise. Stayed there this past weekend. It was one of the few places that had availability for just one night when we booked weeks ago. Weather was beautiful. The room was spacious - two beds, sitting area (sleep sofa) and kitchenette. They thought of everything, including a hair dryer. The balcony overlooked the beach -...

Clean, large rooms great view. Quiet end of town (unless you get noisy neighbors out on the decks). Was surprised to have noise from adjacent construction site. They even work on Saturdays. The hotel desk stated an email went out but I did not receive one.

Our room was spacious. Fridge and microwave in room. Balcony was a great size and we were able to sit and look at the ocean even though weather was less than perfect. There is currently no restaurant on the premises, but we walked a short distance to Hemingway's at the Grand Hotel. Hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. A...

Stayed here for a girlfriend's weekend in December. The room was very clean, had been updated and perfect for the three of us. There was a nice efficiency kitchen area. Bathroom was a bit dated but clean and adequate. Obviously the hotel was not at full capacity so it was very quiet this time of year. Perfect location directly across...
