Have been guest more than once and so far have NOT been disappointed. Room always clean, staff always helpful, location is excellent. Wish they were open all year long.

My wife and I wanted to get away for a couple of days for our anniversary. The Sea Crest was perfect for us and for our first trip to Cape May. The location was covenient to the beach and within walking distance to all of the shopping and resaurants. The pool and hot tub were excellent. The place was certainly more mature with few kids around splashing in the pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We even returned to our room one afternoon from the beach to find a complimentary bottle of wine for our anniversary.

Although our room appeared a little dated, it was in good shape, the view was excellent, and you could see that other rooms had been updated as needed. The price was a little high for the quality of the room, but seemed to be competetively priced compared to other hotels in the area for that time of year. Also it was nice to find a place that didn't require a 3 night minimum in Cape May as most others do, especailly for people like us that couldn't get away for that long.

When we first came to Cape May, we shopped around for a place to stay trying to balance costs with comfort. After staying at 5 or 6 different locations we found no better location than the Sea Crest.

The staff is friendly and helpful. We tend to use the “two-room super luxury suite”, so these are very roomy. They have everything you would need for a short to long stay. We typically stay up to 2 weeks. You pay a little more for the big rooms, but because we tend to eat breakfast and lunch in, the overall cost per day is lower. You can’t get this kind of space anywhere in Cape May for the money.

Let’s not forget the views, from the kitchen table we have a sweeping southwesterly view that cannot be beat. The light house located at the point can be easily seen from the upstairs rooms.

Convenience is probably the number one feature. We come into Cape May the back way via Seashore road to Broadway; this brings right to the hotel door. It avoids the slow moving and congestion of town. The location is walking distance to the center of town, yet does not have all of the crowds.

The elevator is just a few feet from the parking lot. Take the elevator or walk down the stairs, cross the street and you are at the beach. At the entrance to the beach, you will find:
Beach tags
Quarters for parking in town (parking is plentiful and free in the hotel)
Restrooms while at the beach
Lunch or snack
Beach rentals

The Sea Crest Inn is worth every penny!

The place is always clean, quiet, mature in it's demeanor. the money is put back into the Sea Crest, always new upgrades.
This time we saw new doors with built in louver blinds, new large tinted ocean view windows and bathroom shower updates.
The place is never mildew like some other shore inns.
Last year it was full when we did a spur of the moment drive to Cape May, we stayed elsewhere & missed the SeaCrest badly.
Not a kid place, really, it's mature quiet & friendly.
Being from mid Jersey it's a little hard to be greeted in a friendly manner by some other guests there. Are you talking to me? Do I know you?
But I got used to it.

We've been coming to Cape May for many years and first started out going to a B&B which someone we knew owned. He now owns "Tommy's Hotdogs". When he sold the B&B, we tried the Seacrest Inn because we wanted to be by the ocean, and have stayed there ever since. It's a great location near the end of Ocean Dr. away from most of the activities, just where we want to be to relax. Bob and family have always kept the place in great condition and esp. now with some remodeling they have done. We won't stay anywhere else, and anyone who has complained here, well, guess you can't please everyone, then stay away and keep the rooms for us. Thanks for another great vacation!
