“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

This place was the perfect choice for our 3 day get away in September,2013.
There was a very well equipped small kitchen where we made 2 diiners, a small terrace/porch for sitting outside ,a TV with a DVD player and a comfortable bed a nice small bath.
The place is located half way between Amagansett and Montauk, so it's only a 10 minute drive to either town.
I would stay here again by all means.....oh, and right on the ocean!

Montauk has always been a favorite destination of ours but never found anywhere we liked to stay or could afford for that matter. We usually spent way too much money renting a house but this time decided to go for a hotel. It took us a lot of research and deliberation to choose Seacrest but have to say WE COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR MORE. Our room (#14) was clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed to make some meals. The location is close to restaurants. And Seacrest is right on the beach. The staff was nice and Rosemary in the office was awesome. We actually loved it so much we went back for a short weekend getaway just one month later. The bedroom is nice, the queen size bed was very comfortable, the furniture in the family room and dining room was so cute. Each unit even had balconies with comfortable furniture. The towel service and chairs/umbrellas on the beach was also and HUGE bonus. If you made me say one not so perfect thing I'd really have to think very hard and I would say there was no bathtub, shower only. But even that didnt bother us, we just gave our son a bath in the sink =) The parking lot was always full indicating a lot of other guests but the property was so quiet I really felt we had it to ourselves. I actually dont want to say too many good things because I still want it to be available next year when we return.

Room Tip: We didnt pay extra for the ocean view room (from inside) because we could walk out our front door to...

Our family of 4, including 2 kids ages 17 and 21 shared a 2 BR, 2 bath unit for 5 nights here in August. We booked late, so we got the last 2 BR available, which was #5, a duplex unit right above the office. There was no real view from the lower level bedrooms, but there was sort of a view toward the pool from the small upper level balcony. Each unit is individually owned, so they vary. Our unit was clean, with tile floors throughout, and there was plenty of space for us. The beds were very comfortable. An ocean view would have been nice, but we did not spend much time in the room other than evenings. Sea Crest is all about the beach, which is right out the door no matter what unit you are in. Lounge chairs, umbrellas, and towels are provided and set up on request for no extra charge, other than tips to the beach guys. There is no lifeguard at the beach, so parents of youngsters have to keep watch. The beach goes for miles in both directions, so it's perfect for long walks or jogs, and there is plenty of room for ball games, sandcastles, or kite flying without bothering others. One evening, we got some firewood from a local store, dug a pit, and had a bonfire on the beach with s'mores after dinner. We got the idea from others doing the same on our first night. We walked by the pool, which has a lifeguard, but we preferred the beach. We made b'fast and lunch in the kitchenette each day. There is an IGA supermarket in Amagansett and another in Montauk. We tried local restaurants most evenings. Our favorites were Surfside Inn in Montauk and Indian Wells Tavern in Amagansett, each was about 10 minutes away by car. Across the street from Sea Crest is Cyril's, a laid back beach bar/restaurant with outdoor seating that attracts a young crowd of revelers at dusk, although the noise never reaches the hotel. In fact, for a large place, Sea Crest was fairly quiet, other than a few kids shouting for joy as they leapt in the waves. That's a nice noise, and I can't wait to hear it again next summer.

Room Tip: The upper level rooms have better views, and some are facing the ocean.

Basic, but nice place to crash on the beach. The rooms are pretty outdated (bright orange bathroom anyone!), and if you get stuck sleeping on a pull-out couch, be prepared for springs in your back and a bad night's sleep. The guy who manages this resort (and the neighboring ones) is a real jerk, so don't expect any favors if you want to have friends meet you on the beach. He's a jerk about parking passes, etc. Be warned there is a 4-night minimum in the summer, and some of the hotels nearby are about the same quality and do not have the same minimum.

Our family rented many units at the Sea Crest Resort this past July. Each unit is individually owned so they varied but on the whole we all enjoyed our stay. The beach chair and towel service is a reason we chose this resort and was well done. The resort is quiet which is a plus and the service offered at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The weather during our stay was unseasonably warm so we did not make use of the charcoal grills and the pool area seemed warm given it's enclosure. Pool temperature also seemed too warm but I assume if the ambient temperature was cooler it would not have seemed so uncomfortable. The towel service at the pool was excellent.

Room Tip: If you are interested in an ocean view choose a room on the top floor of the Rapallo and St Tropez b...

My family has been staying at the Sea Crest for over a decade. We stay in a downstairs Rapallo 1.5 bedroom. Deck leads right to the dunes and beach. Towel and chair service on beach is excellent. Towels also available at the pool. Charcoal grills are on site. Rooms not fancy, but that really doesn't matter. We always have a great time.

Our family of 6 squeezed into a one bedroom at this lovely hotel. It is ideally situated 1/2 way between Montauk and Amagansett, with plenty of restaurants close by. The hotel room was recently renovated (I think my kids were the first to sleep on the pull out couch), clean, has a fully equipped kitchen, microwave, keurig/coffee machine etc. Your biggest decision is pool (heated) or beach first. The beach/pool chairs are comfy and ample towels provided. We are looking forward to visiting again soon!
