Sea Crest Beach Hotel
Ranked #7 of 20 Hotels in Falmouth
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Travelling up from NYC on our way out to Provincetown, we wanted to stop for a night in Falmouth to stretch our legs and get a taste of this part of Cape Cod.

I chose Sea Crest based on reviews and the website photos and found the property to be everything it claimed it'd be (not too much more though). Our room overlooked the ocean and pool, was spacious enough and had everything it should have. The only downside was the smell of chlorine from the indoor pool which was on the ground floor of our section.

Close enough to Falmouth township to be an enjoyable scenic drive; the area is really quite beautiful and I'm glad we stopped through for the night.

I can see how it'd be an ideal place for families in the warmer months - we came in early June so still a little chilly to enjoy the ocean or the outdoor pool.

7/10 - would recommend. Little pricey for what it is though.

This is our third visit to the Sea Crest as part of a conference, our first two being delightful with great rooms and a nice beach. However, this time was quite different. When we arrived, we were put in a ground floor room across from a mechanical room on a busy and noisy corridor right off the lobby. It was an ADA room with a wider bathroom, leaving very little room space - not even a desk could fit. The room was very dark and overlooking the parking lot. Quite miserable and came out to about $275 a night after tax (conference rate). Honestly, Motel 6 rooms had this one beat by a mile. After two nights of this and repeated visits to the front desk, we were finally moved to a significantly better room with a view for our last night.

Upon checking out, I spoke to manager (Mike) and expressed my concerns. I asked that in the future, they let people know when they book these rooms (there are only a few of them) about the smaller than usual size and lighting before they shell out a lot of money. I felt his response was pretty dismissive, saying that they've never gotten this complaint (hard to believe) and that next time we should ask for a room on a higher level.

We love this place, but this experience left us a little leery. Overall, my advice is that before you book and spend a lot, make sure they guarantee you a decent room that isn't numbered between 700 and 705.

Room Tip: Stay away from the ground floor rooms near the lobby - ask for this when you book!

Stayed for 2 nights this past week and loved the beach access. Rooms were ok, nothing special. Restaurant very expensive for what you got. Property kept up and was clean. Good family resort. Brought my 5 yo grand-daughter who loved everything about the place. Had an indoor and outdoor pool that were very clean. Staff were all friendly and willing to help. overall, enjoyed our stay very much.

Just spent 4 nights there (thankfully at significantly reduced rate). The beach access was fantastic, although crazy crowded on the weekend, and having free beach chairs if you got there early was nice. The rooms were very average, and I agree that the cooling system left quite a bit to be desired. Some complained about the comfort of the bedding, I would say in particular, the pillows were awful. Place is still in need of updates (interior painting etc..) if they want to be considered a premium hotel.

It was nice that a restaurant and bar on premise, but not being able to walk anywhere was a drawback for me - you are very isolated from anything. It was about a 15 minute drive into Falmouth where you can actually park and walk around and see things and enjoy the town.

Good sandy beach, 10 mins from Falmouth as best town / restaurants and surrounds on Cape Cod.
Hotel bit of UK Butlins resorts style...huge quantity of rooms, very busy including non residents visiting for beach. Residents putting towels out in morning on all chairs around beach and pool, people hogging hot tubs, restaurant caters to masses.
Falmouth great place to get boat Island Queen to Martha's Vineyard, then rent bikes (1st seller on left as arrive), after greatest coffee in town Oak Bluffs, cycle to Edgarstown, stop along way on great beaches for swim, have fantastic lobster roll on restaurant veranda.
On mainland, drove slow roads to Chatham, saw seals next to fishing pier, great Sundae School ice cream on way back.
Best place to visit on Cape Cod is the Knob...small harbour close to Falmouth, free parking, and great small beaches either sea side or harbour side and small 10 min country walk with views.

Just stayed one night in early July at the Sea Crest. Lovely location with beach right out front and two pools and a nice fitness center. Unfortunately, the bed was too soft and "lumpy" for my taste. Also, the air conditioner kept going on and off during the night instead of maintaining the right temperature. My evening meal at the casual restaurant was very good. The clam chowder was excellent. Overall I would come back to the Sea Crest and try another room with ocean view. (I was in a pet friendly room on the lower level of this resort.)

Thank you for your recent review. We hope you do come back! Thanks for the note about the chowder…we think it’s the best on the Cape.

I’m sorry your bed wasn’t comfortable. I would like to know what room you were in so that we can check / replace that mattress. Please email my assistant, Lynn Marble, with your stay details and we will make sure no one else experiences the lumpy bed. At the same time we will check the air conditioner. Lynn's email is lmarble@seacrestebeachhotel.com

Come back soon and try us again,

The purpose of our trip was to meet our friends, spend some time with them and enjoy ourselves. The Sea Crest is a good place for that to happen.

Beach is very nice - chairs, towels, umbrellas all included and set up by very helpful and nice beach staff. Nice beach area, nice surf in the water. Indoor and outdoor pools are also good and convenient.

Red's bar and outdoor restaurant and well equipped, good beach menu and everyone of the staff was friendly, helpful and pleasant. The beach / pool / Red's bar at the best parts of the resort - come for these items.

Room is adequate. It was mostly clean (although the daily service was spotty - no wash cloths one day, bed's made by simply pulling up the comforter the next). Items are dated. Bed mattress was very old and did not provide good sleep...pillows old as well.

It is a good 10 minute drive to town and nothing but the hotel on site.

Our 3 night stay was a good experience - we were focused on the beach / pool / time with friends.
