My family and I have been going to the Sea Crest Hotel since I was 7 years old (1968). You can't beat the location--and if you're an able-bodied person--and either well-off financially or you scrimp and save your money all year long to get there--it's a paradise!
However, it's become increasingly clear to me over the years--the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth, MA-- is insensitive to its handicapped patrons. My mom who needs the aid of a wheelchair stays in an Oceanside Room--a very expensive ($450+/night and climbing) room. There is not one grab bar in the bath. These rooms are barely big enough for two healthy people--let alone two people and a wheelchair. There is no elevator for the luxury deluxe rooms. There is not one automatic door in the entire hotel for a person in a wheelchair to use. The doors and hallways are incredibly narrow. The boardwalk from the outdoor bar to the Oceanside Rooms is great until you come to a step where the Ocean view rooms meet the Oceanside Rooms--how do you manipulate a wheelchair down a step? I realize that the Sea Crest provides handicapped rooms and an elevator in the main building, but a handicapped person should be able to enjoy a luxury room with that amazing ocean view--just like anyone else. It would be nice to be able to access the beach in a wheelchair as well. Everyday of our stay, her room wasn't cleaned and the beds weren't made until 4PM.
Separate Incident: While exiting the bathroom of the Oceanside Room, the top hinge pin popped out of the door causing the door to lunge forward, hitting my mom just above her eye. Maintenance came quickly to fix it--but the front desk didn't offer a word of concern for her-- (i.e., how is she, is she alright?). I had to suggest filling out an accident report because my mom experienced dizziness and discomfort after the incident. After we submitted the form (around noon time), we expected a call or for someone from the hotel to check on Mom--see how she was doing--nothing. We had to ask for the hotel manager that evening so we could explain to him what happened. He was a very nice man--but he didn't get it. He didn't get why we would want a representative from the hotel to care that a defective door in their hotel hit my mom in the head. He offered us a complimentary breakfast--but we were leaving the hotel the next morning and traditionally have breakfast off site the day we leave. This place has so much potential. My family and I just love Old Silver Beach. It holds so many wonderful memories for us. It would be such a shame if we weren't able to vacation there anymore.
