La Mer Beachfront Inn
Ranked #19 of 37 Hotels in Cape May
Reviewed 20 October 2011

We were in Cape May and decided to spend the evening. We noticed La Mer Beachfront Inn and I checking it on trip advisor on my cellphone.
When we went to check in the people at the desk were so friendly and helpful. we asked for a room overlooking the ocean and we were given a room with a beautiful view and balconey. We enjoyed the area so much we would have liked to stay another night be the Hotel was booked. We look forward to returning. Our visit was August 25, 2011.

Excellent location, best staff (especially Lynn at front desk), great rooms, reasonable rates. I have spent many vacations on the east coast, and this is one of the best. Onsite restaurant, with great food and the friendliest staff, you could ask for. I will continue to book year after year.

Room Tip: Beachfront rooms are the best.

I love La Mer and my husband and I, as well as members of our family, have stayed numerous times for years. My onyl 2 issues with it are the fact that they require a 3 night minimun stay and being business owners this becomes difficult. The only other disappointment is that we cannot book the same room two years in a row. I realize that most people want the better beachfront rooms, but maybe there could be some way this could be worked out. We were twice forced to stay elsewhere because we couldnt stay 3 nights.
I love the atmosphere of La Mer, the Pier House food is great from breakfast through dinner, the rooms are neat and clean and the coffee pot and mini kitchenette is a plus!

My wife and I have enjoyed staying at La Mer for the past 4 years this year will probably be our last the reason being the unfair treatment on re-booking. At the end of our stay at checking out,we requested the same room for next year We were told that our room was already booked and rooms are "first come first served" this was never our experience in the past. We feel that reservation people at the the front desk should have let us know that our room was being booked to someone else and given us first shot because of our loyalty. Their " business only attitude" left a very disappointed feeling for both of us.

We are extremely sorry that the room you would like to have booked is not available.

Please understand, that if the room is already booked by another guest, there is nothing we can do about it.

As you know, reservations are based on a first-come-first-serve basis and many times, and often times our repeat customers book far in advance to get particular rooms (especially the more desirable ones).

It's our hope you give us another shot because we love our guests!

We gave this hotel a second chance this past labor day weekend, and all I have to say is the Air Conditioning system ruined our long weekend. Like sleeping on a airplane runway, clicking on and off all night, sometimes for 5 seconds. Seems like they just cant get it together.

We are sorry to read this review and apologize your AC was clearly not functioning properly. We pride ourselves on running a tight ship and it sounds like your AC system needed servicing. We hope you notified the front desk of the issue.

We will be sure to bring this review to our maintenance department right away.

Again, sorry for the inconvenience and we hope you give us another try!

We have gone several years in a row to this hotel. Always clean. Patio in every room. Little kitchenette means you do not need restaurants three times a day. Beach view from our room, and I think all rooms. Perfect access to the beach, with the great addition this year of beach chair/umbrella service.

I do wish that the balcony lights would not be on all night, they are not controllable from the room, and I would love to sleep with the sliding door open to get some of that great sea air. Unfortunately, with the light on, it is too light in the room to keep the door open. (Hey hotel management, you might save on air conditioning costs if you did this)
