4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2009

I'm a stickler for a view (I don't have one at home), so if you're like me, there are rooms you won't want at this Inn. Avoid rooms with 'sun deck' view. The sun deck is a stifling unshaded cement pad with a few dying plants. That said and done--we upgraded to an ocean view--and couldn't have enjoyed our stay more in our bright, spacious ocean view room with full kitchen, sitting and dining area in addition to bedroom. The location across from the beach is perfectly situated to avoid noisy night life or you can walk over and join in if that's your thing. Loved the access to biking, kayaking, and more restaurants with good menus than we could possibly sample. Kathy, our housekeeper, saw that my husband had dropped his credit card out of his back pock, picked it up, and hurried down four flights after us to return it (and scold him!) Give that gal a raise!

My sister and I have been coming to Sea Crest Inn for 9 years (often multiple times in a year). We don't even think about looking elsewhere to stay. Sea Crest Inn is our home away from home. Our room is huge (with a fabulous view of the ocean) and immaculate. The service is beyond accommodating. The owners have always been generous and friendly, understanding, and service-oriented. When we checked in for our most recent stay, we were welcomed with happy smiles and warm greetings. We can't help it ... we feel like family returning home! And each time we think of Cape May, it's automatic that we think "Sea Crest Inn"!

We stayed at the Seacrest Inn for a week and it was excellent. We have stayed at many shore hotels and this one was by far the best. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were very clean and the pool area was beautiful. You could always get a lounge chair. There was plenty of parking. We stayed in the queen sun deck suite on the second floor. The suite was very large with lots of closet and drawer space. There is nothing I can say about our stay that would be negative. We will go back again next year.

We have been staying at the Sea Crest for about 8 years or more. The staff and owners are very good to us and the place is very clean. Its so cozy and comfortable we never want to leave. We come to Cape May about 3 times a year and always stay at the Sea Crest. I would never want to stay anywhere else. Love the place.

Took the efficiency unit and was glad we did - breakfast and lunch in afforded us
fine dining for dinners. Beach access very convenient. The place is immaculate!
Would highly recommend it to others.

This is the second year we have stayed at the Sea Crest Inn. The location is perfect. It's right across the street from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and the Cape May shops. It is VERY clean and since last year there have been some very nice upgrades in the room. Very courteous staff, also. We have stayed at other places in Cape May, but this will be the place we will always come back to.
