Sea Crest Motor Inn
Ranked #10 of 37 Hotels in Cape May
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 June 2010

My wife and I Just returned from a trip to Cape May to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. We chose the Sea Crest Motor Inn based on previous reviews on Trip Advisor. We arrived and found the location of the hotel to be perfect, across from the beach and near the end of town so the traffic wasn't too bad. Free parking and a speedy check in was much appreciated after a long drive. We found our room to be really clean and spacious. We booked a 4th floor 2 room suite and found a kitchenette with the basics. Large sliding doors opened to a semi-private balcony and an incredible view of the ocean. The bed was a queen (I think) but it seemed a bit on the small side and a little uncomfortable. A few minutes after settling in our room, there was a knock at our door, it was one of the hotel employees with a bottle of Merlot for us to celebrate our anniversary. This was a great surprise and an awesome gesture by the hotel staff and my wife and I really appreciated it. There was a super clean pool and hot tub in the court yard with plenty of lounge chairs. The owners of this hotel obviously take great pride in their business and my wife and I can't wait for a return trip. We will ask for the same room because it was perfect. Thank you to the staff of Sea Crest Motor Inn for making this special weekend perfect in every way!

I called the Seacrest as I was taking my girtl scout troop for their final scouting outing. The owner, Bob, suggested the penthouse due to the size of the group. He wasn't sure if the space was large enough & said I could also book an additional room for $99 if I wanted.I asked if we could bring airbags & sleeping bags & he said OK. I was quoted a price for the 8 of us to stay. I said I just needed to speak to my co-leader & would call the next morning. He said OK. He told me to inform his staff we spoke. When I called the next day to reseve the room, his staff stated the price was more. I said I spoke to Bob & he stated a lower price & I would like to speak to him. He wasn't there but she said he would call. I called later in the day & Bob still wasn't available. His staff stated the price was higher, 20 per cent higher. I again asked to speak to Bob & was informed he would call. I waited approx. 2 days with no call so I called again. Bob was still not available. His staff said they had informed me that day what the price was. They were rude, in my opinion. I hadn't called earlier that day & informed her of that fact. Again I was informed he would call. At this point I checked complaints against the Seacrest Inn & found an Oct. 2009 entry where the person warns of price changes. I then called other hotels & found one that had a room for the original price quoted by Bob. I called the Seacrest one last time & was inform they had talked to Bob & the higher price is his price. I informed them I was booking another hotel for the same price he originally quoted & I would call better business. The Inn may or not not be nice, I don't know. I was originally excited with the room he offered at the price he offered as our scout account has limited funds. The multi-day experience with his staff (Bob, the owner, never talked to me to try & resolve this in a professional manner.) has totally turned me against this facilty. I am leary of an establishment that provides such poor customer service. The lack of custoner service is appalling. I would expect the owner to treat all potential guests better but especially a scout troop. He has lost the potential business of at least 8 families & possibly their extended families & friends, when a phone call may have resolved the misunderstanding. This is the only complaint I have ever made.

Our short stay at Sea Crest Motor Inn left us wishing for more time. An oceanview, comfortable furniture, pool, spa tub, kitchenette, and immaculately maintained. Once there we compared what we paid with places nearby with far less to offer,and, surprisingly our rates were lower! Unbelievable value.

We went down to Cape May for the first time. It was like a different world. We booked the Sea Crest without seeing it and we were pleasantly surprised with our room. The room was just what we were looking for. It was clean with a great view of the ocean. The staff was friendly and answered any questions that we had. We will return.

We have been staying at the Sea Crest for over 15 years now. We don't even consider staying anywhere else.

The facilities are excellent. Bob & Cindy, the owners, and their staff are the greatest. They simply cannot do enough for you.

The rooms are immaculate.
The Sea Crest provides the luxury of a resort but the feeling and comfort of home.

The Sea Crest Staff was attentive and helpful with recommendations to the local restaurants and night life, with this being my first visit to the Cape that was very helpful. My room through my entire stay had been kept immaculate by the housekeeping staff. Their room rates are very reasonable and a bargain. I will definitely be returning on my way through next Sept.
