Reviewed 26 August 2014

I recently took a chance booking a room at this hotel, while working in the area, after talking with Cathy at the front desk. I am absolutely not sorry! The rooms are immaculate and spacious, the location is perfect, the hotel is quiet, and the staff just tipped it over the top! Could not have stayed in a better place!

Room Tip: My room was around the pool but I don't think there could be a bad room.

Best stay we've had yet! Had a Motel Oceanfront room on the 4th floor. The room was spotless and our housekeeping lady was friendly and very efficient. The bed was sooo comfortable. Coffee on the balcony in the morning watching the waves. Office staff were exceptional. Going back next month for my wife's birthday.

An excellent place to stay while in Cape May. Located in a quiet part of town with a beautiful view of the ocean from the balconies.

Beach is easily accessed across the street. Pool area is large with plenty of lounge chairs and shady locations.

Hotel is located within walking distance to Cape May's shopping mall and many restaurants.

Staff is very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Select a room with an oceanfront view. Additionally, if you enjoy having an informal breakfast and...

My sister and I stayed here for a long weekend in August 2014. We had a room on the fourth floor with a wonderful view of the beach, lighthouse and ocean. Appreciated the welcome basket of treats in our room; a nice personal touch.
Beautiful cross breeze in the bedroom - no need for A/C and temps were in the high 80's.
Upon arrival there was a slight musty smell in the room; which after opening some windows and bringing in some air freshener was not as noticeable. Only other negative we had was lack of iron/ironing board in room.
Room was very clean, front desk was super friendly/helpful.
Pool area was immaculate.
Staying at a "mostly" kid free property was just what we were looking for and I am happy to know we have a nice, quiet place to stay in Cape May.

Room Tip: Higher floor has a great view of the lighthouse if in a pool side room.

This hotel is just what we needed. Staff is very helpful, pleasant and this hotel is super clean. I wish we had discovered this place years ago. Definitely going back next year. Pool area is clean, location works for me and the view from our balcony was amazing.

This was my husband’s and my first visit to Cape May. We are picky, but not high maintenance travelers. If you are looking for a clean room in a motel that is directly across the street from the beach than this may be your place. There is plenty of parking, but you won’t need your car. It is easy to walk just about anywhere you want to go.

We stayed at the Sea Crest for three nights in August. We were in room 301 which had a King sized bed with a comfortable mattress, sliding glass doors with screens to enjoy the breeze and the excellent view, and a reasonably sized closet. I did not notice a musty smell in the room.

The staff in the front office was friendly at check-in and check-out and gladly answered any questions we had during our stay. The owners of the hotel do have a large dog, as other reviewers mentioned, but I didn’t notice it any more than I would notice any other large dog.

The motel does not provide beach tags or beach service, but there is a company on the beach across the street that rents chairs and umbrellas. We paid $24 for one umbrella and two chairs for the day plus a tip to the kid who carried it and set it up for us. We did not use the pool, but it looked clean and inviting.

On day two our room was not serviced until after 2PM and by then we were back in our room resting. We exchanged dirty towels for clean ones when the housekeeper came by without incident.

I would stay here again if I were going to be in Cape May for a short period of time. If I were going to stay for a longer period of time, I would stay in a resort with a restaurant/bar on premises, beach service, suites with multiple rooms and full kitchens.

Room Tip: 3rd floor Ocean front have excellent views.

I asked questions as I am a first time traveler to the area. The receptionist hung up on me, couldnt be bothered answering questions and right before she hung up I asked about a pull out couch in the rooms and I swear she called me a jerk and hung up.....I think I shall never be recommending this place.......
