Sea Crest Motor Inn
Ranked #8 of 37 Hotels in Cape May
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2013

We've been traveling to the Sea Crest on an annual basis for 17 years and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. We feel like we are family. The facilities are CLEAN and WELL MAINTAINED. It is located in a quiet part of town, across the street from the beach, but within easy walking distance from the activities of Cape May. The resort is mainly adult only. We like a two room suite, as it gives us more space than a hotel room and the kitchenette permits us to have breakfast and lunch. Sitting on the balcony, each morning and evening is a nice way to relax. We also try to walk to the end of the promenade one night each trip for the sunset and Flag ceremony. Each year, we reserve our room shortly after they open for reservations. This year was no exception and we planned for our trip for late July, however, due to a personal issue, we needed to cancel, but we called and asked if anything was available at the end of June. The front desk was very accomodating and we were still able to spend our summer retreat at the Sea Crest. Thank you for another fantastic stay!

My husband and I stayed here for a short getaway. This hotel had everything we hoped for. We opted for the best view and it delivered! The innkeepers were very nice and accomodating. We especially liked how well the grounds were kept, the pool area and gardens were lovely!

Room Tip: Higher floors better view.

My 82-year, old mother and 4 sisters spent a lovely weekend at the Sea Crest. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, and trust the TripAdvisor community to steer me in the right direction. They certainly did. Cleaner than clean, comfortable and an incredibly kind and helpful staff. From the outside it has the look of an old-time motel, but nothing else feels that way. The one- and 2-bedroom suites worked beautifully and the location couldn't be better, right across from the beach. Great choice for beach-loving Cape May visitors. It doesn't have the ambience of the victorian bed and breakfasts throughout the town, but suited us perfectly!

Room Tip: Views vary from room to room. Call the desk and ask for guidance to get exactly what you need.

My husband and I stayed here for the first time after many trips to Cape May. We had a great experience. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Our oceanfront room was clean and comfortable. The view was great! It is advertised as an adult getaway and we didn't note any children in the hotel. Almost forgot- our king bed was very comfortable.
We will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor corner room- 401. It was wonderful, with a sliding glass door on each sid...

We are always looking for nice, clean, affordable places to stay for a few nights in Cape May. The last time we visited the town, in April, we stopped in to look here to see if it was a nice place. Upon a quick look in a room, we thought it would be a good place to stay in the future.
The future came this past weekend, when we stayed here for one night.
Our room was clean, bright, well-maintained and cozy for us both.
The bathroom was recently updated with a nice Kohler sink, toilet, and tub, all well-maintained and fully functional. Even nicer was the modern wooden sink stand with two drawers below the sink. That was very nice.
The bathroom was clean and bright.
For us, clean and comfortable trumps a lot and this room was just what we were looking for at the beach.
The LCD TV was fine, and the bed and lighting were good, too.
There was no closet, but there were several dresser drawers.
The towels were clean and adequate, as were the bed linens. The wall unit AC was nice and cold. :)
The front desk staff was friendly and very accommodating.
We will return to this place.
I hope your stay is as nice as ours. :)

We spent two night at the Sea Crest Inn in the middle of June. This was our second stay at the Sea Crest Inn, and we look forward to going back again. We had a 2 room suite, overlooking the sundeck - not a great view but less expensive, and the beach is directly across the street. The rooms are very clean and well-kept, the bed comfortable, and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The pool also is clean and well-cared-for. Cape May is the delightful town, and it's a short walk to the main area where there are shops and restaurants. Even better is the walk to the lighthouse and state park.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the sundeck don't have a view but are quiet and less expensive.

Our first trip to Cape May and the Sea Crest.. we got a 2 room suite (queen bed w/tv in 1 room, bathroom and kitchenette/liv room area w/tv with a shared balcony on the oceanfront facing pool and beach. Great views. Clean. Nice staff. Claudia was our room keeper and she was so nice and wonderful - Kudos to Claudia. The bathroom had been upgraded with new amenities - very nice. However the bathroom door - no lock .. and its more of a - what we call - a parlor door (slides into the wall) so theres no opening in/out door.. I did take pics but haven't downloaded them yet..but I will add once I do. and the AC works great in the bedroom (the only one in the room) but it was not enough to get to the liv room/kitchenette area so it was hot in there and very cool in the bedroom.. and the sliding door that goes out to the shared balcony - usually you get a stick or something to put down on the track - besides the lock on the door - to keep it from sliding back while your out - there was a stick in the track but it was too short and the door could open enough for a thin person to get through so we added our personal stuff to it to keep it from sliding back that far....also - we went to the Ocean View restaurant a few times to eat and we found out staying at the Sea Crest - O.V. gave us a discount on our bill! Would I stay at the Sea Crest again - absolutely and I would recommend it!
