“Very Nice....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

The Sea Crest is a very, very clean establishment. Great views of the ocean. Our room had a wonderful view of the lighthouse and Sunset Beach.
Lots of traffic with Broadway being one of the main streets that come into Cape May.
A little hike to Washington Street but there are some restaurants within a few blocks.
The staff was friendly and most accomodating.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the room with the a/c directly over the bed. Either it was too warm or too cold.

What a wonderful place to stay in Cape May, you are right on the beach and the most perfect spot to watch the sunset. Rooms were beyond clean and nice. Staff could not be nicer. I would highly recommend with wonderful place to stay....

We couldn't wait until Fall this year, so we decided on a short Spring visit. We were lucky to get a 4th floor suite and the view from there is great. The pool and Jacuzzi are both very nice but it was too chilly for either of them the weekend we were there. This hotel is always very clean and quiet. The beds are very comfortable and cozy. Make yourself a hot pot of coffee in the morning and sit outside your room and stare at the ocean waves. Shopping is close by and the Washington Mall is always fun. We went to the Cape May Lighthouse, Sunset Beach and ate at Lucky Bones and the Lobster House, two of our favorite restaurants. Oh, breakfast at the Oceanview Diner where if you show your room key you get a 10% discount off your meal.

Room Tip: We always like the rooms facing the Lighthouse; its a great view. This year we got a room on the 4th...

This was our first visit in years to Cape May and we were only staying one night en route to our destination. The Staff was great. I made our reservation over the phone instead of the internet as we wanted an ocean view with a balcony and the room was everything the staff said it would be. I would recommend the Sea Crest.

Room Tip: The ocean front corners give you two views of the ocean but ask for one that gives you a sunset view...

This was my first trip to Cape May. I found the Sea Crest Motor Inn by an internet search. I read others' reviews and saw they were very good. I am somewhat of a germaphobe, and the cleanliness of a hotel/motel is essential to my being able to relax and enjoy my stay.

The Sea Crest room we stayed in had a bedroom and a kitchenette/sitting room area. Both were spotless (The maids were still cleaning our room as we walked in, but that was no big problem.). The bed was comfortable and the living area was bright and cheerful (we had a room facing the ocean). The bathroom was clean and well decorated.

There is a very short walk to the ocean (just across the street). We walked practically everywhere, which didn't bother us. The Sea Crest is a few blocks (big blocks!) from the Washington Street Mall where we spent much time shopping and dining.

The only negative was a fish smell in the fridge. It was pretty strong, but we didn't complain. Upon checkout I told the clerk, and she said they would have fixed that if I had told them earlier in the week.

I'd definitely stay there again...wish I could go back today!

Room Tip: Our room was right over the pool and we had an ocean view. It had a semi-private balcony, but since...

My sister & I stayed at SEA CREST OCT 22-23 & Absolutely LOVED IT THERE! It was our first time b/c the place I used to stay at refused to budge on the 2night minimum rule...Lucky for us! SEA CREST was not only able to accomodate us for the one night but we even got a NEWLY REMODELED SUITE..with modern ammenities which was IMMACULATELY CLEAN! The bed had a nice comfortable mattress so we got a good nights sleep after walking alot all day.The location is ideal, within walking distance to everything to do in town. I told ALL of my family members & this will be our FIRST CHOICE to stay in Cape May from now on. Thank You SEA CREST! I plan on coming back many times!
