As we walked in about to check in we were greeted by the owners of the place
Mark and Maggie.

They were so welcoming
They gave us a tour of the place and a run down and were very sweet.

This place is so clean it really amazes me how clean it is.
Me and my husband consider ourselves to be pretty clean people our selves but I must say they beat us lol.

You can literally turn your foot over and there won't even be a piece of lint on your foot lol.

They even cleaned our room two times for the day one time and I knew this cause our garbage was taken out twice that day.

I also loved how they switched up the throw pillows on the bed.
I'm into those things so I noticed it.
Very nice touch.

I also love how they had everything ready for us dishes, cups, silverware, dish soap you name it they had it there.

To me and my husband it was very important for us to stay in a place that had a kitchen because we have a 8 year old daughter and didn't want to eat out every single meal while on vacation.
We wanted to be able to enjoy breakfast and lunch in our room.
Which we did everyday.

This hotel is in a great location
with a supermarket down the block and a cvs and my favorite store Dollar Tree.
Oh and I forgot to mention a really nice beach and great restaurants overall great atmosphere.

My Daughter Kristiana loved Mark and Maggie so much she wanted us to leave her with them when we were going out lol I never told them that but thought that was funny.
They always say a child can pick up good people and that goes to show you how comfortable they made us feel.

Oh and they had so much toys for my Princess to play with outside by the pool and she played with them everyday

They also have 2 BBQ grills which is nice to grill and chill out by the pool.

They also have beach chairs to use to take to the beach with you along with beach towels.

They also have a washer and dryer on site which is nice cause you don't have to go back home with dirty clothes and it's only 1.50 to wash and I believe a 1.25 to dry.

Overall our experience at hotel SeaCrest was amazing truly amazing couldn't ask for anything better.

We are looking to visit again soon Maybe in December.

The hotel is a hidden treasure and easy to find. Short distance to the sandy beach and even walking distance to restaurants, grocery and shops. The owners, Mark & Maggie, put their personal touch and heart in this gem. We had three rooms and every single one different from the other. Definitely will be back in the future!

This hotel is clean, quaint, and conveniently located close to the beach, restaurants, etc. Our room was spotless. Cleaner than many homes I've been in. This is defintely my #1 pick the next time I visit South Florida. I wish I could've enjoyed it longer.

Owners, Mark & Maggie add a personal touch to the hotel experience.

We left our hearts at the Hotel Seacrest in Lauderdale by the Sea...

For the past six years, we have been going to Lauderdale by the Sea for our annual family vacation. We enjoyed the "Old Florida feel" of this community, but had never quite found the perfect place to stay... until now.

Indeed, this year was our first time at the Hotel Seacrest... AND WE FELL IN LOVE WITH IT!!!

We loved it's newly and tastefully renovated suites, it's cleanliness, it's lovely pool area and beautifully kept grounds... We also loved the fact that it has such a convenient location, from which we can take a short and pleasant walk straight to the best beach entrance in Lauderdale by the Sea (Washingtonia), not to mention a quick walk to all the convenience stores (Publix, CVS...), beach shops and restaurants!

But most of all, we fell in love with Hotel Seacrest's new owners: Maggie and Mark. They are the reason we will go nowhere else in Lauderdale by the Sea from now on.

Maggie and Mark are, without a doubt, the coolest and kindest people on Earth!!! They sincerely make you feel welcome and will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy and well. They fill their hotel with a positive vibe that literally catapults it in a league of it's own and make it THE BEST PLACE TO BE IN LAUDERDALE BY THE SEA!!!

The only down side is: it will be a year until we get our hearts back!!! ;)

Elliot, Roseline, David and Diane

The Hotel Seacrest is a wonderful place to stay. We came down at the end of June 2014 for 5 days and it is a gem! The pool is lovely. The beach is very close. Quiet area. Stores and restaurants within close walking distance. And the price is right. Its a great place to go for quiet couples or small family. I will be going back every year!!

Room Tip: we stayed on second floor and it was very quiet.

The hotel was immaculately clean. The rooms were beautiful. This is a great get away spot that is very close to the beach. We loved the pool. The landscaping and gardens surrounding the pool and hotel were stunning. The town is safe, family-oriented and a lot of fun. We really enjoyed snorkeling off of the town's three-tiered coral reef. We will definitely be repeat customers.

This is a vacation villa that is very beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. The word "hotel" in the name of this establishment does not convey the beauty of the landscaping, the serenity of the environment or the proximity to those desirable destinations that are essential for a truly relaxing vacation. Two blocks to beautiful beach. Two blocks to grocery store. Two or three blocks to beachfront eating and shopping. We stayed a week which was much too short. The pictures of this villa are just like shown on the internet thanks to owners Mark and Maggie who keep the grounds and rooms in superb condition. Plan to spend some time sitting around the pool having coffee in the morning while watching the geckos come out for sun. Spend some time after dark sitting around the pool just watching the light show and listening to the fountains. Spend some time swimming in the ocean or in the pool (it might be hard which one to choose...so do both). There are many really enjoyable restaurants within walking distance or within a very short drive. Thank you Mark and Maggie for a memorable vacation....miss you already....can't wait to see you again.
