Based on tripadvisor reviews and pictures, we decided to give this place a try. Overall, our stay was a very pleasant one. While small, our room was clean and comfortable. The humongous bathtub was a huge bonus, especially after a day of scuba diving.
When we called to make our reservation, we were concerned about having somewhere to hang our gear after a day of diving. We were told that the Palm Room, with a separate side entrance would be the best for us, as we would be able to hang our gear on the fence. This worked quite well. While the space between the fence and the property was too narrow for our scuba cart, we were able to stow the cart under an overhang off the front of the building.
On Sunday, after checkout, the manager even allowed us to leave our things in the rental property next door, and use the shower there following our dives. This was such a fabulous and totally unnecessary thing for her to do, and it made such a big difference for us in terms of comfort and convenience.
The only snag was that our room did not get serviced by a maid on Saturday. Yet when we called Juan, the manager on duty, early on Saturday evening with a request for clean, dry towels, he was there in about 10 minutes with a stack of towels for us.
We felt well cared for during our weekend stay at the Seacrest Inn, and will definitely be back.
