“Great place on the ocean!!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Have stayed at the Sea Crest Inn and enjoy the location. The motel is clean, quiet and convenient if you enjoy walking you can easily walk to restaurants as well as the Washington Mall. They are located just across the street from the beach.

Room Tip: This hotel has two room suites; ask for one with a view of the ocean.

We had booked 3 rooms at the Sea Crest Motor Inn a week before going to Cape May based on reviews written. We were very disappointed. We arrived in Cape May and checked in at the desk at 11:00 am, our rooms would not be ready until 3:00 pm, we requested a call if one of them became free. We did not get any call and when we got there at 3:00 we were told that 2 were ready but probably not the third. All our rooms either overlooked another hotel's roof or an alley, only one room had a clock, another room did not have any tissues, the vanity in the bathroom was so small that we could not keep our toiletries on it. I do have to say that the rooms were very clean. We did not use the pool, however, it did look quite nice. To use the beach there is a $6.00 fee per person. I was surprised that we did not get any discount as guess. The hotel is locate on the southern end of Beach St. which seems to get less traffic .

Price was half of what other places were charging yet they delivered same, if not more! Right on the beach yet away from the noisy part, but within easy walking diatance to restaurants and Washington Mall. Very clean room suite, plates, utensils, refrigerator stovetop and and microwave. Beds were firm with extra pillows. Plenty of parking. Sparkling pool. Super nice reception staff! Wish I could stay longer!

Stayed here with my husband last weekend. There were no other hotels in Cape May that I called willing to do a 2 day stay (Friday and Saturday nights). I gave it a shot and called Sea Creast. I spoke with a very pleasant person on the phone. They had a room facing the water reasonably priced compaired to some hotels I called. I booked because we really wanted to get away, but was thinking the worst. What a pleasant surprise when we got there. Nice place, extremely clean room, nicely updated and decorated. Bed was a bit uncomfortable but not a deal breaker. We really enjoyed our stay there and would definately book again. In fact, hoping to get a room there in Sept for our anniversary!

The Sea Crest Motor Inn is one of, if not the best, value in Cape May. This was our second visit there and the staff was friendly, accommodating and very responsive to our needs. Great view of the ocean in an adult-like motor inn. Private, secure parking was a bonus and a great pool and hot tub. We met several great guests during our stay and the laid-back setting was just what we needed. Conveniently located to great restaurants and shopping and just a short drive to great things-to-do. We stayed at another hotel last visit....just to see what was out there, but we will definitely be going back to the Sea Crest from now on for our visits to Cape May.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 2nd floor or higher for a better view of the ocean from your balcony.

Wife and I sneak away to Cape May once a year. Place is quiet, great restaurants, clean beaches and some great smaller hotels along the ocean street. Sea Crest is one of these and the stay is always relaxing. Bob and staff always make you feel welcomed. Facility is very well maintained and rooms are basically new, great beds and bath, hardwood floors and kitchens in suites. Rooms all have a porch facing the ocean. Price wise tough to beat their rates for ocean front in the northeast! Plenty of parking, great pool and steps from the beach, restroom and snack shack.
