the decor is like back bay boston with kennedy-type sophistication & a touch of cape cod classics. kudos to the new owners & management team. WOW!
the service, the rooms, the amenities were unreal all in one place - my siblings and all our families all met on the cape to spend time vacationing earlier this month - the only thing is the restaurant food & menu options not so impressive but im sure theyre working on it - and oh the outdoor atmosphere the tiki bar - this is quite the hot spot! adults & kids alike would thoroughly enjoy - this little piece of WOW!

We stayed at the Sea Crest last summer before all their renovations were complete and we knew it would be wonderful this summer with all renovations complete. Well, it is. We stayed in an oceanfront room which was spacious, CLEAN and very comfortable. The large oceanfront restaurant serves a wonderful breakfast every morning with a view of the water that is the best way to start your day. A casual oceanfront restaurant serves dinner every evening and the food was delicious! The Lobby is very large and offers big screen TVs and tables and chairs where we actually played board games in the evening. The General Manager is on site all day and into the evening and he really cares about your comments and input about the resort. The parking is MORE than sufficient, which is very important to us with a larger vehicle. The beach is superb, long enough to walk, clean and gorgeous. They offer complimentary lounge chairs, umbrellas and towels which really make the beach experience wonderful. The Sea Crest is the ONLY place for us to stay at the Cape. They offer everything to make your Cape Cod stay memorable.

This was our fourth year going to Sea Crest and we had a great time! We were meeted with a cheerful friendly David Murray at the front desk. He explained everything about the new changes, where to eat and other helpful pointers. The two other couples that we went to Sea Crest with also thought David was very nice and we all made sure to say good bye to him at the end of our stay.
Clark Guinn the new GM was also astute to everything going on at the beach hotel and was always asking if things were good. We saw his presence very often all around the hotel.
We enjoyed our stay with the two other couples and all the kids and did meet another couple with children while we were there and will try to book the same time with them next year. We also plan on extending our stay by one more night!! Thanks Sea Crest, especiallly David Murray, Clark Guinn and Tom Forend for going above and beyond for us! My daughter who was 4 also liked the crafts in the pool area!

After a comparatively dismal 2010, Sea Crest's new owners closed the entire hotel from October 2010 to June 2011 for some much-needed renovations.

Service was markedly improved. Last season the hotel ran on a bare-bones staff and every aspect of the stay reflected that. This is no longer a problem; everyone was cheerful and helpful.

Buildings #3 and #4 were completely renovated. The bathrooms are a little smaller but now sparkling new and clean. The smaller bathroom means the room is larger: the extra space features a nice countertop (where the coffee maker is now located) and larger fridge; a great place to store snacks. Rooms now have nice flat-screen TVs and generally feel cleaner and larger; Windows/doors to the terraces have been completely replaced; doors now swing outward, allowing even more room in the room. AC units remain as before but at least now were clean and non-musty.

The glass-and-aluminum corridor that once connected buildings 2-7 is gone; a new open-air walkway replaces it. That will be a bit of a bummer during stormy weather but is an improvement nonetheless.

Outdoor pool is now saline and has a new enclosure, and there's now an outdoor hot tub (only seats 4-8, though). Pool saw a lot more use than before. Surface is unchanged and still hurts people's feet.

Indoor pool was remarkably clean & fresh. Both pools (and the beach) are now swim-at-your-own risk.

The towel problem has been solved through the use of towel coupons. You get one laminated towel voucher per guest on checkin, can swap those for towels at the indoor pool, and return wet towels for a fresh towel or a voucher at any time. There were plenty of towels available for our entire stay.

Red's replaces Oscar's, and now features both take-out and eat-in service (the menus are similar). New bathrooms added near the entrance of the indoor pool; game room moved to the location of the old weight room (still not enough air conditioning).

The space between buildings 3 and 4 was completely redone, and is now clean, tasteful, and inviting.

With additional staff, even the beach is cleaner; seaweed is swept up every morning.

In short, everything felt better and cleaner.

Outdoor sports such as tennis courts, basketball, and shuffleboard (which had been neglected for years anyway) have been retired.

Cons:

Food prices went from "very high" to "almost insane". The buffet breakfast (still the only breakfast option) jumped from $16 to $18, which means breakfast for five is about $100 including a modest tip. Dining area is completely renovated and the breakfast now includes made-to-order omelets, eggs, and Belgian waffles-- a great treat, but spending a third to a half of the cost of the room just on breakfast? Wow. A soda at the Red's take-out is $3.00.

The new location of the bar means better views at the outdoor pool, but it also means that bar patrons now occupy many of the nearby tables that you'd ordinarily use to eat your take-out lunch. You can now bring food into either pool area, but without tables to eat from this is really inconvenient (not to mention potentially messy), especially with kids.

Many renovations are incomplete. Indoor pool's locker rooms were a disgrace last year; this year much of it (including the sauna, steam room, and showers) was simply boarded up. New signs at the pool mistakenly indicate that you can't use any facilities after 11:00am on the day of your departure (fortunately, the front desk disagrees with this). Fortunately, for those taking a dip in the pool or beach on their last day, there's now an outdoor shower at the outdoor pool -- otherwise there'd be no place to rinse off before the ride home!

Some buildings have not been renovated (yet). Indoor pool's nearly-impossible-to-walk-on surface was coated with epoxy, which reduces the "ouch" factor somewhat; what would have been even better would have been something like indoor-outdoor carpeting. Despite upgrades I still found plenty of burned-out lights (I was hoping they'd have fixed the lights in the pools!).

Overall: A great start on much-needed renovations; a greatly improved overall feel; terrific service. We decided last year that we'd give Sea Crest "one more chance", and they didn't disappoint us. We'll be back.

I was interested in attending the Harvard Medical School conference this August since I could get CEU's while enjoying some needed vacation time. The conference was great and the hotel did a great job of providing breakfast and drinks to keep us going during the morning sessions. The hotel had a recent remodel (we were told) and I think we lucked out in being in the rooms adjacent to the hotel which seemed newer. Our room was comfortable yet close to everything. The hotel was right on the ocean with our own private beach area and both an indoor and outdoor pool. Some of the staff are worth noting--Michaela who checked us in and worked in the evenings. She was humorous and extremely helpful with getting our needs met. Melanie was also helpful with dinner recommendations. We were able to rent bikes right on the beach and were quite close to things. It is very private and safe. They do not allow anyone onto the grounds who isn't staying there or attending a conference. Their gym facilities could use improvement--one of the treadmills wasn't working during our stay and they did not have filtered water or a TV in the exercise area, although the view of the ocean was pretty magnificent. Loved that they offered a Saturday Zumba class which I took full advantage of and had a great time! Would definitely go again combining both business and pleasure!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our rooms (we were in 812) and never had noise problems. I think the rooms off the pool...

This resort hotel was recently renovated for around $10 Million and it shows. It's very tastefully designed and decorated. It's right on Old Silver Beach having clean, soft, fine sandy beach with clear water. There is a refrigerator in the room for convenience but no freezer.
Shanon and Mikaela at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful.
Many of the staff are from Eastern European countries and are very pleasant and helpful, always a smile on their faces.

The location alone would bring me back...but the newly renovated Sea Crest offers fabulous accommodations...it was hard to leave the beach front bar to go in for dinner...but the food at Reds while we watched the Ocean was outstanding! Pribably the best baked Oysters I have ever had. Jeff the Chef has done it up right!
